At the tip top of the Texas hill country, The Nest offers spectacular views from its perch. Recently featured on SouthernLiving.com, The Nest is a hybrid cabin with features of both a treehouse and a bohemian bungalow. This truly customized getaway, is filed with wonders from the portal entry to its Texas cedar observatory. Once you arrive at this "Pinterest perfect" cabin, you'll never want to leave. Minimum age for guests is 12.

The space
To access The Nest, you must follow the rock path through the portal gate and onto the front porch. The cedar harvested from our property surrounds over half the cabin and provides a decorative camouflage. From the cover of nearby cedar and hardwoods, you are guaranteed a concert from our local birds and maybe even a gobble from the wild turkeys. Deer, jack rabbits, horses and a couple of cows may also pay you a visit.
The Nest is furnished with electricity, hot water and air conditioning/heating. A small refrigerator, coffee maker, induction cooktop and microwave can be found in the kitchenette. There is no TV or Internet so bring a book or maybe just good company!
The following will also be provided with your stay:
Bed linens and pillows (Queen size memory foam bed)
Towels
Shampoo/Conditioner
Body wash/Soap
Picnic grill (provide your own charcoal)
Plates, glasses, silverware, some cooking utensils, pots and pans
Water filtration system with drinking water on tap at the kitchen sink
Some snacks and drinks

Guest access
Our property is gated and the entrance code will be provided on your check in date. The keycode to the Nest will also be provided at that time. Parking is available on site.
Guests are free to explore the 50 acres of private land. Walk the property down to Possum Hollow creek (seasonal) and stick your feet in the cold Paluxy water or find a sunny spot on an oversized limestone rock and just have a drink and relax.
Located minutes from Dinosaur Valley State Park, downtown Glen Rose and Fossil Rim, there are options for outings...if you bring yourself to leave the serenity found in our little bungalow.

Other things to note
Our property is located in nature and you can expect to find some creepy crawlies. Make sure you pack bug spray if you plan on spending time outside walking around, especially in the mornings and early evenings. Our dogs do have free reign of the property. They are friendly and love to lead our guests on walks.

In order to maintain a serene environment for all of our guests, children under the age of 12 or more than two guests are not permitted.

Date changed requests must be made 14 day in advance of check-in date. Only one date change is allowed. Guests are responsible for any difference in rate.

Individual weeknights become available 2 weeks in advance and require a $20 cleaning fee. Friday and Saturday nights require a two night minimum stay.

Living a crazy life married to a French rodeo cowboy and raising two little monsters. We love to travel and explore, especially in France. My hubby likes to explore outdoors, I prefer to explore wine cellars and cheese aisles. We both love to live like locals wherever we are and love suggestions from our hosts. We have been hosting guests on our property for over a year now. Our level of interaction is completely up to our guests. We love our hometown and sharing our favorite swim holes, restaurants and local attractions. Two years ago we almost lost our little girl to a ruptured brain aneurysm. She was only four at the time. Our life changed in an instant and we realized that the life we wanted for ourselves and her needed space and a slower pace. So I quit my teaching job and our little family moved to Glen Rose. There is so much fulfillment in what we do here and our daughter is thriving despite the brain injury she sustained. If there is anything we have learned from this it is to appreciate the time we have with those we love and experience as much as possible during the life we have been given.

During your stay
We fell in love with this property the minute we saw it and we love to share what it has to offer with guests. Our home is also located on the premises and we are available to answer questions or help out if needed. Ace and Twinkie (our pups) love to wander and love people. We are outdoor people so don’t be surprised to find us swimming in the creek or hear our daughter squealing as she goes down her slide.
