Georgetown House Rental Photos and Description

1 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 2

Our setting will capture your attention and inspire you. As you leave the hustle and bustle of Austin you will literally feel your stress and cares melt away as you drive down the country lane to the house. Watch the horses and goats as they graze in the top pasture, watch the bird activity from the beautiful outdoor seating area with hill country terrain, or stroll down to the river bottom and hike along the river.

Deep in the heart of Texas, this was the art studio for famed TX landscape artist, C. P. Montague and was designed around centuries old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock picked up at the river on the property.

Georgetown is only a 10 minute drive away and you can stroll around one of the most beautiful town squares in Texas, eat in one of the many fine restaurants we have been blessed with, or attend one of the many festivals held on the square throughout the year.

Pick up a brochure from the Visitor's Center on the square and go on a self-guided walking tour of the historic home and business section of Georgetown and see many beautifully restored Victorian homes and read the stories behind them.

Austin is a 30 minute drive away, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds staying at Scurlock Farms.

About Owner Sheron Scurlock

Owners are the family of renowned Texas landscape artist C.P. Montague. The Studio has been lovingly restored to preserve her legacy. See the rock ledge by the front door with the black lettered sign for The Palette Pad, the artist's name for her work area.

We also live on the farm, about 1/3 mile down the country lane. We have raised our family here, and our grandchildren have been raised on the farm. We absolutely love it and feel blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy this piece of earth. We look forward to sharing it with our guests.

Owner Sheron Scurlock purchased this house in 1970

Why Owner Sheron Scurlock chose Georgetown

Dan has retired and I am seriously thinking about retirement. We own a small business providing required continuting education for insurance agents in TX. It is basically a business I can run by telephone and the post office, so it is great to office at home. I am also still involved with an insurance company and do company training for them, so that does involve some occasional travel. Luckily my son and his family also live on the farm so they are able to care for and watch out for things when we are gone.

I grew up on a farm in Rockdale TX and could not wait to get away from the farm when I graduated. Dan was raised in town.

When my parents offered all of their children a home spot on the farm, Dan and I were the only ones that took them up on it. By then, I couldn't wait to get out of Austin and back to a farm!

Dan's Mom was concerned about him living in the country, as he never had, but he has become a true country boy.

David is his right-hand man and they enjoy doing farm chores together. The past couple of years have really been interesting.

In April, 2009 a tornado literally blew away our 'new' 72' barn. They spent the next year building another barn - this time a red barn, which I had always wanted.

September, 2010 we had a major flood which wiped out 1/2 mile fence along the river and washed up mountains of debris against trees in the bottom. We have bulldozed, planted grass and Dan and David are have almost finished putting in 1/2 mile of pipe fence.

Last year we had chickens but our neighbors dog killed them all for sport. Since then, I got a Great Pyreneese pup and he will guard the next batch of chickens we get. A friend called and has some baby chicks to give away, and I think we will take them. We'll have to make sure Jack knows to guard and not chase them!

Jack may greet you when you arrive at the farm. He is friendly and loves people and looks like a fuzzy white bear.

A Wonderful Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful time of relaxing and reading my favorite book, watching the birds while enjoying the hammock outside. The host was gracious to provide scrumptious blueberry muffins for breakfast. I made myself comfortable for the time that I was there. I will sure to come again! Free wifi was a plus, too.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay at The Palette Pad on Scurlock Farms! Williamson County is great for birding - 2/3 of all birds found in Texas are here at some time of the year. The hammock is a favorite of many guests - especially after returning from a day of sightseeing or a trip into Austin. We would love to have you visit Scurlock Farms again!

Breathtaking

  • 5 of 5
The studio is a nice little get away for a single person or couple. Tucked away in the Texas Hill Country, this peaceful property boasts 172 bucolic acres on a working farm. The only sounds for miles are the wind blowing through the trees and birdsongs. It's a great little place to ground and center yourself and a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of city life. At night the sky is clear and you can see the stars for miles. Sheron makes award-winning blueberry muffins for the length of your stay. Her hospitality is beyond measure. You won't find a better place to kick up your feet, relax and take in the beauty around you.

Owner's Response: It is amazing how many people have been to the Palette Pad this winter and spring with the same goal - to find themselves, contemplate, and get away from it all! All reported they were successful and plan on returning. Whether you want to stay on the farm, sitting under the beautiful centuries old live oak trees, hiking the many paths around the farm, or go into Georgetown or use the farm as a home base to take in the many activities in Austin, 30 minutes away, Scurlock Farms is the perfect place to do it from!

I am glad you got to experience all three houses on the farm while in Georgetown - The Palette Pad, Rocky Overlook, and Indian Bluff. I do hope you will come again after your time in Europe!

Cozy and charming

  • 5 of 5
The studio is a warm and charming studio home with large, open windows overlooking the green countryside. It is quiet, secluded and a picturesque escape. Sitting by the fire place, while watching Texas storms brew through the panel windows is so peaceful and melts the stress away.

Owner's Response: Many guests have enjoyed the wall of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the San Gabriel River bottom. It really makes guests feel as if the outdoors had come inside. My mom was an artist and loved the natural light and painted many a painting in front of those windows. I know you did a lot away from the farm while you were visiting, and it is nice that is so centrally located and only 10 minutes away from Georgetown and 30 minutes from Austin. Georgetown itself is becoming a destination city with much to do around the historic square. I do hope you can come again!

The Palette or Studio is a beautiful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
The property was a beautiful place for a serene getaway in the country! You feel like you are in the mountains sitting at the outside table with the cool breezes. You are on a high embankment looking at the tops of the trees along the river. Listening to the birds sing and resting in the hammock.We were so blessed to spend out 40th anniversary there enjoying the peace and quiet. Thank you so much for everything.
Blessings

Privacy and peace

  • 5 of 5
The Palette Pad was a wonderful place for a getaway with my husband. The warmth and peaceful atmosphere were just what we needed. We look forward to a return visit in the early fall. The view from the wall of windows was incredible. The cottage was clean and had everything we needed for a calm weekend.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you as you celebrated a birthday! I am glad the Palette Pad was everything you expected! Fall is a beautiful time of the year with the yellow wildflowers and the colorful fall foliage off the bluff. Looking forward to your next visit!

The Studio is on a working farm with 1+ miles of river frontage, with lots of hiking, fossils, fishing and great birding opportunities. The farm was a camp ground for Tonkawa Indians so many arrowheads have been found. Within minutes of many golf courses, Lake Georgetown, and miles of hiking trails in Georgetown and around the lake. Georgetown has excellent theater production at The Palace Theatre, InnerSpace Caverns, Blue Hole swimming/hiking area just off the downtown square, two local wineries with tours and tastings. Only 12 minutes from Southwestern University and 15 minutes from Round Rock Premium Outlets. We are only 30 minutes from Austin with its music festivals, UT, and 6th Street activities.

Other Activities: Pick up pecans, hunt the hillsides for arrowheads, birding, walk to the San Gabriel river, 1/2 mile of San Gabriel River frontage on the property.
