Paluxy River Bed Cabins are nestled in the trees on the Paluxy River in Glen Rose, Texas. We have (2) two story cedar cabins with a balcony off of the master bedrooms (king size bed), so you can gaze into the Texas sky. And we have (2) two single story cabins located with a view of the river. Our two story Rustic and Southwest decor fills this open living room with a futon couch, kitchenette, full bath (shower only), tree shaded porch with a private hot tub, B.B.Q. grill and large rocking chairs for your total relaxation. Our new cabins that are one story, have full kitchens, and all the amenities of the other cabins, with view of the Paluxy River. Theses cabins have a Fishing and Lodge decor. All of our cabins are private and the bird and deer watching is wonderful. You also have access to the Paluxy River. Heat and Air and ceiling fans. No T.V, No Phone, No Stress, No Interruptions, No Problem!

A little piece of Heaven!

5 on May 16, 2016

My husband and I spent the night this last weekend 5/14-5/15/16 in the Cedar cabin and it was an awesome experience! First of all, it is completely private. After we checked in at the main house we never saw another person on the property. Each cabin has its own driveway and it's so heavily wooded that you never hear or see any other guests unless someone gets overly noisy. The cabin was so nice, well decorated and everything you could need to cook or reheat food was provided. I was expecting a tiny refrigerator but it was actually pretty large (I think the term is apartment sized). Soft towels, comfy bed and nice sheets, everything in the cabin was spotless. The hot tub was soooooo wonderful! We turned the temp down to just above lukewarm and stayed in there in the jets for a couple hours at a time. The views from the hot tub are great, we watched birds, squirrels and lizards. The birds sing constantly, it is a very peaceful place. I loved reading through the guest book and seeing what everyone else had to say. The trail down to the river was a little steep but very doable, i loved the swing by the fire pit. There are no tv's in the cabin, but we got cell reception and had a cd player/radio for background noise to go to sleep. The only bad thing that I have to say about staying here was that it didn't last nearly long enough! Cannot wait to go back, for longer next time!

John and Karen, the owners, nailed it! Our cabin was super clean, well kept, comfortable, cozy and private offering the perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of life. We had no need unmet by our accommodations. We will certainly be return visitors.

We are actually going today to stay for the second time. The first was our anniversary after my deployment and today is my beautiful wife's birthday. This place is amazing and so relaxing. John and Karen are very nice and do all they can for you to have a great stay. We have made this a tradition and will hopefully see many more stays here.

Wonderful quiet cabin in the woods

4.6 on October 14, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful time just being together in this quiet place. The kitchen had all we needed for the time we were there. The bed was comfortable. We loved sitting on the porch in the big rocking chairs. We loved that we did not see the other cabins. We will certainly return in the future.

Innkeeper Response
Happy you had a great experience !
