I surprised my husband with a quick overnight trip for his birthday. We stayed at Bussey's and it was such a great value! Susan Bussey was very detailed and made us feel like guests in her home. Everything was clean and I felt like she anticipated everything that we could need! She even made brownies for my husband's birthday. They were so kind and the room was wonderful!

It was a very nice stay at Bussey's Something Special Bed & Breakfast for our Memorial Day weekend. The location is perfect, the rooms are clean, the bed is very comfortable, breakfast and snack supplies are well prepared. Susan's brownie and apple Danish are the best. Morris's shop is a must to visit, we had lots of fun there too. We did not know that we left stuff there till we got a box from them today, my nephew's tower, the souvenir coin my son made at the Dinosaur World. Thank you Susan & Morris, you guys are awesome! We will come back to visit you again!

We stayed at Bussey's Something Special for 3 weeks. Morris and Susan were such great hosts. They welcomed us, and made us feel welcome all throughout our stay. They showed us around the quant Glen Rose town, and shared with us all the fun historical, cultural and natural history tidbits of the area. The bed and breakfast was clean and cozy, we were very well take care of, it was a great place to stay, and if we are ever back in the area, we will definitely contact them again!

This is the only place we will stay at when we visit Glen Rose, Texas. We had so much fossil hunting with the Host, Mr. Bussey on our very first visit over seven years ago that we came back twice more with our family. The hosts make our children feel very special and we always enjoy catching up on family news with them. I have never met such an endearing couple as the Busseys as their love for each other and life and quite evident and contagious. Aside from the exceptional service, we also appreciate the fact this BnB does not serve breakfast with the other guests. I and my eldest daughter are not morning people and our family likes to do things according to our own schedule, not someone else's so a BnB where we are given the means to arrange our own breakfast is quite welcoming. The rooms are always clean and well maintained and our children enjoy playing with the toys and reading the books available to them. Feeding the fish in the pond and visiting Mr. Bussey at the Stone Hut is fun to say the least. One thing I do miss is Mr. Bussey's birdhouses that he used to sell outside the house. ;) I would never even contemplate going to another BnB and when we visit elsewhere, it is hard not to make the comparison to the Busseys-- they have raised the bar that high.

The Inn Keepers made me feel like I was visiting a loving relative's home, not alone in a strange place. The room was filled with warm touches. I walked to the town square and had a nice dinner to top off my night.

We were very pleased. The location was great for our plans & we enjoyed having the little kitchen. We did miss having a meal with others & getting to know other occupants.

We were looking for a place to get away for a quiet weekend, but did not want to travel more than 2 hrs from home. The location is easy to find, quiet and only a few blocks from downtown. We stayed in the Cajun cowboy room, beautiful decor, a private entrance, and munchies of all types were available any time of day. The entire site is clean and well maintained.The Hostess went out of her way to make sure we had a wonderful stay. Definately plan to visit again some day.

Staying here has become a yearly tradition, and each time finds something new & improved. Nice place to stay, cozy, comfortable, relaxing, pleasant innkeepers, tasty food available at our own convenience, soft beds, comfortable atmosphere. While here, we took a walk to Big Rocks Park and got to see a beautiful sunset and moonrise. We walked around the town and visited several shops. Friendly place with plenty of character. I was here with my daughter and my mother, and we all had a good time. Overall a good choice for a place to stay.

Susan & Morris were the perfect hosts. Kind, generous and helpful. They had many amenities not found in other B&B's, and they were generous with extras - snacks and meals. Helpful with helping us with our business plans. We are already planning our next stay with them.

We spent three romantic and relaxing nights at Bussey's something special. It really was something special the way they had everything you needed and more. We could not ask for a better place to spend our anniversary.

My daughter & I came back here for a Mother-Daughter weekend because we enjoyed it so much last time, only we found that they'd made several upgrades and modifications since last time, and it was awesome! From the warm, friendly (yet not intrusive) hosts, to the pleasant and comfortable room, to the wide variety for food and the ability to fix and eat it in your own time choice, it was a very enjoyable weekend, and we're hoping to be back for a Grandmother-Mother-Daughter weekend next year!

We had our own cozy room which was decorated so nicely. We asked the lady if she had had a decorator and to our surprise, she had painted it and decorated it all by herself. A jack of all trades that woman is. We stayed there, my husband and I, while traveling through Glen Rose. We are so glad we decided to go there. The host were sooooo nice :D Thanks again for letting us stay!!

I just spent two relaxing nights in the Cajen Cowboy Room. It have everything I needed for a home away from home. I travel all over the country and it was so nice getting personalized attention from Morris and Susan Bussey. I spent time reading by the pond and sitting out on the new porch just relaxing enjoying the beautiful view of lush greenery. It a great location within easy walking distance to the square which offered some cute downhome dining experiences. I can't wait to bring my grandkids with me next time. For a unquire fun personalized experience, I would definately recommend Bussey's Something Special.

We stayed in the Cajun Cowboy room. It had everything we needed! Even a few supplies we forgot! I loved the country music left in the room. The old westerns were great too! There are supplies to make your own breakfast, but we did not use any of them. The room also comes with a well stocked fridge. The room was cool and dark and we slept great! The bed was comfortable. The Busseys are awesome hosts! We would not stay anywhere else! It's like staying with family. We sat outside in the garden and enjoyed the fish ponds. It's a great place to relax! The Busseys also recommended great places to eat: Turn & Burn and the Riverhouse Grill (which is across the street!). Bussey's Something Special is very close to the square. We were easily able to walk down to the square and visit the shops.

We had 2 nights in the Cajun room, and looked around the Victorian one as well. Both are wonderful, filled with curiosities from the past West. Susan and Morris Bussey were very friendly, hospitable and helpful in looking for dinosaur tracks locally. We would definitely stay again. Trevor and Chris Watts, England.

Bussey's Something Special is VERY SPECIAL! My husband and I unexpectedly stayed in Glenrose, TX overnight. We needed provisions and were going to have to make a trip to Walmart to get supplies. Instead, we did not need to because the Cajun/Cowboy retreat room we stayed in was AMAZINGLY Supplied! WOW! I do not have enough words to express my thanks and gratitude to the Bussey's for their thoughtful provisions of their Bed and Breakfast Room! They had all of the overnight supplies we would need! What a wonderfully sweet couple! They helped create a weekend my husband and I will never forget! My husband and I really LOVED the Cajun/Cowboy retreat room we stayed in! The decorations were so well thought out that my husband and I were still noticing details even when we were checking out on Sunday! We loved the special touches in the room -- remote controlled fireplace/heater, games, books, puzzles, CDs, old fashioned styled radio, ceramic tile decorations, cowboy theme, stars on the ceiling, magazines, very very clean accommodations, Western DVD's, privacy, creativity, decorative details, and much more! We had so much fun exploring what was in the fridge and taking our time the next morning, choosing what to cook from the great selection of snacks and food, and having privacy! I am still in awe of the experience! Not only was the B & B fun, clean and creative --- we were able to visit Mr. Bussey's REALLY cool fossil shop --- and that's not all -- the Bussey's EVEN showed us around and pointed out a few fossil hotspots. (Mr. Bussey is a professional FOSSIL HUNTER!) What an unexpected bonus. My husband and I LOVE adventure! We love the outdoors! If you are looking for an experience you won't forget - with fun, creative and relaxing accommodations, this B & B is well worth your time. This was not just a boring motel room, THIS WAS REALLY LIVING LIFE! DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS FUN!

Bussey's was very nice...our kids loved it. The Bussey's are always willing to help in any way possible. We'll definitely be staying again!

room very cramped and cluttered. no one was ever available when there was a problem. accommodations are far below average. we were to stay 2 nights but the 1st evening as we were dressing for an elegant dinner, the commode overflowed in the bathroom; hosts said they had been having problems. had to cancel our reservations for dinner and make new reservations for 1.5 hours later while waiting on the hosts to return to the site. unable to get dressed in the bathroom after that. hostess said they would get it cleaned up at which point we stated we would not want to stay another night were told she understood and would give us a discount for our inconvenience. following morning got dressed and packed up (no breakfast as you have to make do with whatever is in the refrigerator and cook it yourself with an electric skillet; we were told there was a kitchenette). we were wanting to check out then go somewhere for breakfast, but we could not locate the hosts, again. we went to the square for breakfast to give them plenty of time to return home. we returned, they still were not there and we had to call them on a cell phone again to try to check out. host stated they would just put it on the card provided; we entitled to a discount as stated by the wife, they said they would just put it on the credit card and we could leave. we wanted our receipt. host finally returned to check us out (we were already 3 hours delayed). she proceeded to add everything up without telling us how much of a discount we would be given for our inconvenience. we were finally told a 10% discount was applied which only amounts to $11.50, hardly enough to make up for all the problems. If I owned a bed and breakfast as bad as this I would be glad to get $45 per night, not $115; at least a 25% discount was expected. this is the only one where i have encountere any problem of at least 25 in which I have stayed. NOT PLEASANT.

My daughter & I stayed here for a mother-daughter getaway weekend, and it was awesome! We loved being able to take Abby, the dog, for a walk around the square, the B&B is very convenient to the square. We loved the cozy comfort of the Victorian room, the enjoyment of swinging in the swing in our little yard and visiting the pond. The decor was beautiful, the hosts were nice, the food was good (and it was nice to cook at our own leisure). There was a nice assortment of CDs to listen to, books/magazines to read, and games to play. I could go on and on, but we had a wonderful time and I'd recommend this place to anyone!
