The  Inn On The River is nestled on the quiet banks of the Paluxy River.  For many years now, travelers and busy professionals have been drawn to the rest and relaxation offered on this beautiful property.  In 1915, George Paul Snyder built a turn-of-the-century health spa called the Snyder Sanitarium, which was in operation until the 1970s.  Today, the Inn On The River carries on the longstanding tradition.

Each room is uniquely decorated with simple Southern charm.  Our favorite part: the featherbeds.  If you have ever slept in a featherbed, you know what we mean.  The featherbeds created a gentle cocoon of luxury that gave us the deepest and most restful night of sleep imaginable.  Just as nothing is worse on vacation than a poor night’s sleep, nothing is better than a great night’s sleep.  You will definitely emerge from the Inn rested and rejuvenated.

 

Breakfast at Inn On The River

The Inn On The River surprised and delighted us with the high-quality cuisine they provided during our stay.  Although the Inn On The River is off the beaten path, the fare they offer is five-star quality.  Breakfast was palate-pleasing!  We also enjoyed a scrumptious dinner of gourmet salad,  filet mignon,  grilled salmon, and homemade desserts.
