Thirty-five miles from Fort Worth, these cabins offers a relaxing environment for your special occasion or a time to get away.

Perfect for a honeymoon, anniversary, family gathering or girls get-away. Make memories with your children by playing board games and croquet. Children love the playground and visiting the three playhouses. Adults cherish the time to hold hands in the swing, shop the town square and attend some of Granbury fine dining and entertainment. Each cabin has a coffeemaker, microwave and refrigerator. Some cabins have jetted tubs. Pets are welcome with a $10/night cleaning fee.

Great Place

My wife and I really enjoyed the place. It was quiet, clean and the people who own it are fantastic. The location is great because you are across from lake 5 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from Glen Rose. We plan on making a return trip in the future.

Get away in October

Cottage was charming and clean. Plenty of room to spread out and relax, inside and out. Breakfast was SUPERB both mornings. But the real treat was Karlyne and Gary, both very special people. We really enjoyed our stay. We'll be going back.

Great place to stay

Have stayed here before and love how clean and cozy it is. Love that they allow dogs and dont charge extra fees for that. Good walking trail for the dog. Wonderful breakfast. Will stay here again.

Wonderful and quiet place to stay

It's a nice quiet place to relax. Amazing breakfast, clean cabins, and very friendly people.

Cozy cabins feel secluded but are close to key attractions

My husband and I stayed in the Jurassic Cabin which is meant for 2 couples or more, but we did not feel that it was overly large for us. We were very comfortable and although the property is right off a country road/highway, the many trees gave us the feeling of privacy and seclusion. We enjoyed the jetted tub and daily breakfast. Greg and Karlyne are wonderful hosts. They are not overbearing at all, and breakfast with them isn't awkward - it was filled with laughs! This is a great place for singles, childless couples, folks that travel with their pets (like us) families with kids, or even family reunions (the Jurassic Cabin sleeps 8, possibly more; you can also rent out all the cabins if you wish). If you wish to use the fire pit, bring a few extra chairs - and don't forget the smores ingredients.
