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...

Thank you for the kind review. Lori and I, as well as the staff, enjoyed your group very much. It is such a treat for us to see a work retreat filled with laughter and smiles. And what an honor to host you ladies. Please come back and see us soon as we would love to see each and every...

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 I went for a weekend retreat and while the food was good and the service was good, the rooms was very old and outdated.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 had no idea that such a beautiful inn could be in a town like Glen Rose. They are located in a gorgeous spot on the river, accented with some ancient oak trees. There is a pool that we took advantage of on the hot day we were there. The innkeeper is very gracious. You will enjoy your stay there.

My husband and I just returned home from a one night stay here to celebrate our 32nd wedding anniversary and I am already wanting to return!

This was our first stay at Inn on the River but it won't be our last. Even though the river was rising from several days of rain (chairs were swept away the night before in the rushing waters), the relaxing atmosphere never changed. From gracious hospitality to wonderful breakfast, we could not have asked for anything else...other than a few...
