We stayed one night while on a road trip with my parents. The Inn is such a warm and quaint spot, the staff were so congenial and hospitable. The rooms were somewhat small but well appointed, the feather bed was so comfy! The grounds were beautiful, right on the river, with plenty of seating for relaxing and enjoying the surroundings....

I stayed at the Inn on the River in Glen Rose, TX in March 2017 for my brother's wedding. Our families and friends rented out the entire inn, and it was a fabulous spot for an intimate wedding weekend. The owners, Mike and Lori, were easy to communicate with and incredibly helpful. My brother constantly talked about how easy the...

Anniversary trip. Stayed one night. The grounds were beautiful. We took a bottle of wine and sat out back by the river and enjoyed the view. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are small. The ommon area was very comfortable. The dining room was wonderful with a great view. Breakfast was very good.

We had a wonderful time. Not only were the owners of the inn great hosts, the town of Glen Rose was very welcoming. We each had our own room with a private bathroom, a large conference room with a fireplace overlooking the river and amazing home-cooked meals daily. All of the women in this group are global travelers and were...

We're seasoned travelers who have considerable experience with B&B's. We admire people who put their lives on the line to run a B&B! The Inn on the River is neat and the people are great. My 3 star rating is based on what I consider poor value for the price. Our room was very small and their isn't a tv...

This bed and breakfast is located out in the middle of the smallest town i have ever been to. There is not much at all to do here. I went for a weekend retreat and while the food was good and the service was good, the rooms was very old and outdated. They were furnished in antiques and old times...

You must experience the laid back, extra relaxed, soooooo enjoyable kinda stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. No televisions ............just a beautiful property, where you can sit, relax, take a walk, share conversations with other guests, and totally enjoy the Inn Keeper's personalities and innate abilities to make their guests feel like they're at home. Breakfast is sooooo delicious....

If you want a less expensive, impersonal hotel just to sleep and leave, well, this might not fit your needs. However, if you want a beautiful,well manicured setting, 300 year old trees along a peaceful river, this is the place. The staff was welcoming, personal and professional. The rooms are small (good lighting, great water pressure, air conditioning, WIFI, armoire,...

I stayed here as part of a large group for a business meeting. From the beautiful Inn and view to the most amazing owners and staff there is nothing negative that can be said.
