Indian Bluff - Spectacular River Views from 100+ foot Bluff

Feel your stress melt away as you go down a country lane to Indian Bluff - a very comfortable, beautifully furnished home sitting in the middle of a 172 acre working farm - similar to a bed and breakfast, but better!.

Explore the spring fed creek in front of the home and see hundred of fossils in the limestone banks, fish or simply throw rocks in the San Gabriel River. Large live oaks, centuries old, make great shady spots for sitting outdoors. Enjoy the outdoor patio in back and watch the spectacular sunsets as you enjoy a glass of wine or beer after your day's activities. Enjoy the fire-pit in the fall and winter seasons. As you walk about, watch for arrow heads - many have been found.

Large king master suite, two queen bedrooms and guest bath. 22' high queen inflatable mattress also available. The dining table has a large leaf and will seat 8.

This home is ideal for families, family reunions, romantic get-aways, and girl's weekends.

About Owner Sheron Scurlock

Dan and I have owned 112 acre Scurlock Farms since 1986. My mom and dad originally purchased it in 1968 and after my dad died, we began buying it from my mom. She passed away in 2010 and we inherited her home and art studio, which are also on the farm. Not wanting to sell the homes, we remodeled them and began letting others share the beauty of the home and the farm in late 2010 (HomeAway #903120 and #369386).

In 2013 we were fortunate to be able to buy the adjoining 60 acre farm and the 3 bedroom home on it. We have totally remodeled that home and furnished it very comfortably. I have been using it as overflow rentals from the other homes listed, but decided to go ahead and give it its own listing.

Dan and I have had a ball meeting people from all over the United States and the world. Last week, a band from Spain playing at the SXSW Festival in Austin stayed at Indian Bluff and the Studio and the week before that a bride and groom and his family from India spent a week at Indian Bluff.

Dan and I both have been in the insurance business since college. Dan has recently retired and I am thinking about it! We also own a continuing education company, providing required CE for Texas insurance agents. Between that, the 3 vacation rentals, running a 172 acre farm, church activities and volunteering, we are very busy.

Owner Sheron Scurlock purchased this house in 2013

Why Owner Sheron Scurlock chose Georgetown

We truly live in one of the most beautiful areas of Texas, and certainly one of the prime spots along the San Gabriel River. When the adjoining 60 acre farm became available, we jumped at the chance to purchase it! Guests can enjoy the mile of river frontage, fishing, hiking, fossil and arrow head hunting, pecan harvest, or simply being lazy on the patio enjoying a book or drink under the huge live oaks. In the evening listen for the owls as they call to each other.

What makes this house unique

The views from the bluff are spectacular! The sunset over the river is taken from the bluff behind Indian Bluff.

AWESOME

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home to create great family memories! Sheron was a pleasure to deal with and quick to respond to any questions, etc. Indian Bluff truly is a superb, spacious, clean home away from home. The beds were comfortable, good showers, and the kitchen had plenty of room to cook and very nice dishes and pots and pans, etc. The house has many wonderful amenities and touches throughout; such as movies, games, books, extra blankets and pillows, nice plush towels. The house is very convenient to any activities in Georgetown and Austin. Sheron thought of everything to make this place feel like home. We had a great time on the farm at Indian Bluff and we thank the Scurlock Farms family so very much for opening their beautiful home and surroundings to our family. Hopefully, we will be back!

Owner's Response: I am so glad your family enjoyed their stay in Indian Bluff! I know your husband is an avid birder and got a lifer while visiting - I am so glad the rare sparrow was still around and he got to see him twice, as well as many other species! The blue bonnets are really popping out now and should be spectacular in a couple of weeks. I do hope you can come again and your family can visit you again and your niece's daughter can have another "best day of her life"!

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what our family was looking for. We needed to be in the Georgetown area for two months. The thought of staying at a motel or renting an apartment just did not feel right. We felt welcome from even before day one. What a great experience.

Our family includes two children and two dogs. Indian Bluffs was the perfect place for us. The wifi enabled us to continue school seamlessly. The fully equipped kitchen made it easy for me to prepare meals. The beds were enormously comfortable (so much that now that I am at home, I am missing them!) That our doggie family was welcome and had plenty of room to exercise was so important. We enjoyed our hikes and runs and the quiet seclusion of being at the end of the road. We felt safe and secure in the location.

The Scurlocks were wonderful. They were helpful, informative, generous and attentive. Anytime we needed something (such as more firewood for the chilly days and nights) they were quick and pleasant to help.

Our stay here was absolutely perfect. The home was clean and everything in the house worked. The kitchen was well stocked and I had the opportunity to cook in the oven, on the stove, in the microwave and on the bbq grill. We had plenty of hot water for a family of four. It was so helpful that there was a clothes washer and dryer right there.

We could not have asked for a better place to stay for the length of time we spent in Georgetown. I would absolutely recommend staying with the Scurlocks to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, homey home away from home. Thank you so much! If we ever have need for this situation again, I will be making reservations happily!!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you chose to stay with us in Indian Bluff at Scurlock Farms! It was a pleasure meeting your family. I'm glad your dogs enjoyed the farm as much as your family did! There are certainly plenty of activities to enjoy. Did you make it to Enchanted Rock? A family left today and they did Enchanted Rock and loved it! Hope you can come again - we'd love to host you again!

Awesome Getaway House

  • 5 of 5

I had the wonderful opportunity to stay a couple of months at the Indian Bluff house. As others have expressed, I felt relaxed and at home as soon as I got there. There are so many personal touches Sheron and her family offer.The homemade muffins she makes are delicious and were still warm from the oven. These come in a variety of flavors, you will be asked what kind you prefer. There is a tour of the 130 acre property that includes views from the bluffs overlooking the San Gabriel River and the family goat herd. Much nature can be seen, deer, hawks, armadillo from hiking trails as well as from the back porch of the house. The home is beautifully decorated with such amenities as wi-fi and household essentials, kitchen, laundry, and bathroom items. The house was sparkling clean and well maintained. This property is the perfect distance from either Austin or Georgetown activities so the day can be planned accordingly. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative.

Sheron you and your family were such wonderful welcoming hosts. It is an experience I will never forget.

Owner's Response: I feel like I made a new, good friend while you were visiting! I am so glad you were able to spend time and enjoy the peace and quiet. I enjoy sharing the farm with guests and the tours around the farm are a great way to show guests the river and the different areas they can hike and explore. There are so many fun things to do within 30 minutes of the farm - I'm glad you got to enjoy some of them! We are blessed with some great restaurants - El Monumento overlooking the famed Blue Hole swimming area on the San Gabriel River has become a favorite with guests. I do hope you can come again.

Wonderful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 people in our group and the house was a perfect fit. It was fully stocked including coffee, tea and Sheron even made us Blueberry muffins! Yummy, thank you so much. The pictures were a very good representation of the property and the only thing that bugged us was that there were no numbers on the outside of the house. This made it a little difficult to make sure we knew we were at the right place. Other than that we had an absolute blast and would definitely recommend it to anyone. Next time we are in the area we know where we are going to stay.

Sheron, thank you so much for everything.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you stayed with us in Indian Bluff at Scurlock Farms while attending your cousin's wedding! Too funny that you found your cousin's family was staying in Rocky Overlook on Scurlock Farms right down the drive from you and had the rehearsal dinner there!! I have purchased reflective numbers I will put on the fence post entering the Indian Bluff yard - thanks for the input! Come gain when in Texas. It was a pleasure meeting you.

Indian Bluff at Scurlock Farms is ideally located. We have several wineries in the area, some with tasting rooms in Georgetown. InnerSpace Caverns is a fantastic cavern discovered during the construction of IH 35. Be sure and go to Blue Hole, a local swimming spot just off of the square. Antique shop around the square in Georgetown or go to Salado, a 25 minute drive. See the Williamson County Museum, the Art Museum and the many art sculptures placed around town. Golf in one of the many great courses around Georgetown. Georgetown is host to many festivals - Red Poppy Festival in April, Halloween Fest in October, Christmas Stroll in December. See first rate live plays at the beautifully restored Palace Theater on the Square. Shop at the award winning Wolf Ranch in Georgetown, or the Premium Outlet Mall just 15 minutes away. Austin and its many activities are only 30 minutes away. Georgetown is blessed with many superb restaurants, so you try out as many as you have time for. 2/3 of all birds found in the state of TX are found in Williamson County. Many birders stop along the roadside of the farm to see the many varieties that make their homes here. We are blessed to have many habitats on the farm - forest, thicket, prairie and water frontage, so we attract a large variety of birds. Many arrow heads and artifacts have been found on the farm as Indian Bluff is the highest elevation for miles, so the Indians camped and lived on the land. Georgetown has miles and miles of hike and bike trails, connecting several beautiful parks.

Notes:
With 1+ mile of frontage along the San Gabriel River, the river has been a favorite with young and old guests alike.

Many arrowheads have been found on the farm and maybe you'll get lucky and spot one. Hike about the farm and enjoy the many bird species (2/3 of all birds found in Texas are found in Williamson County).
