Overview

Georgetown Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2-1/2 BA with spectacular views, quiet country setting

Exceptionally beautiful 2 story historical 100 yr old country home, situated on 3 acres in the Texas Hill Country.

Our elegantly furnished home features hardwood floors throughout, beautiful oriental rugs, fully equipped eat-in kitchen, separate dining room, 2 living rooms, 1-1/2 bathrooms downstairs and 1 bathroom upstairs.

Driving north of Austin on I-35, I always feel as if I’ve returned to the rest of Texas when I reach Georgetown. Past the sprawl of the capital, though the rip-roaring growth of Round Rock (which looks as if it’s been eating its famous doughnuts), I take a deep, if brief, breath of open prairie and wide sky. Then I duck under the shade of Austin Avenue and its vintage homes and emerge onto one of the prettiest squares in Texas.

Stroll beautiful downtown Georgetown and appreciate some of the finest Victorian architecture in the state of Texas. Unique shopping and delicious dining are some of the options which await you.

In any given week in Georgetown, you can find multiple performances, art openings or live music to experience.

Choose from multiple venues that showcase eclectic and traditional art, or find yourself swept away by award winning performances.

The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas is the stage for many of the festivals and special events in Georgetown. The Red Poppy Festival, held each year in April, is a musical celebration of spring and Georgetown’s signature red poppies. The Christmas Stroll fills the Square with holiday sounds, shopping, and goodies in December. There’s always something happening in Georgetown.

Other activities and attractions in the area include:

- 9 miles of Hike and Bike trails along the South San Gabriel River

- Georgetown Challenge Course. Nestled among the trees lining the North San Gabriel River, this year-round course consists of many low team elements, 22 new and exciting high elements (including parallel zip lines), and 2 climbing walls.

- Disc Golf Course

- Blue Hole, a scenic lagoon lined by limestone bluffs, situated on the South San Gabriel River in Georgetown, Texas

- Georgetown Art Center, located on Main Street

- Georgetown Public Library

- Palace Theater (a year round live theater venue), located on South - Austin Avenue

- Inner Space Caverns is a living cave, which means that its formations are continuing to develop and take shape. For over 80,000 years, the cavern has been constantly changing, allowing for spectacular displays and breathtakingly beautiful formations.

- Antique shopping in nearby Salado

- Stagecoach Inn - Famous dining experience

Fabulous Country Home

  • 5 of 5
Remarkable home! We need a place to stay for our daughter's wedding that was being held in N. Austin! This home was perfect!! We brought with us my 91 year old mother (that has dementia and is in a wheelchair), my 94 year old father in law (also has dementia), and my 90 year old father (who by the way is in great shape)! The home was perfect! Mom and I slept on the sleeper sofa in the living room! Of all the sleeper sofas I've ever slept on this one was super comfy and queen size. Bathroom was down the hall and just big enough to get the wheelchair through. My husband and his dad slept in the master bedroom also downstairs and near the master bath. Perfect again!!! And my 90 year old dad and our super helper Faziah climbed the stairs and slept in the two wonderful bedrooms upstairs. My mother loved the kitchen and sat for hours starring out the big windows watching the cows and dogs run thru the pasture! I think it took her back in time and really made her feel safe! My 94 year old father in law didn't want to go home and played scrabble for hours with our help! My dad loved the home because he grew up in Georgetown and it reminded him of all the wonderful people and places he loved so dearly in this town!! And oh yes it was a great place to get ready for the wedding and was a quick ride about 20 minutes to North Austin! PS it's dark at night, coming home down the country road, but The Elders have the trees lite up at night and it's easy to locate under the beautiful moon and stars!!! Loved it and the hospitality!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting all of your family and the caretaker Faziah (I know she's a blessing to you). I would never have believed your Dad was 90 years old - he's got a real zest for life. We're glad the wedding was nice and that you enjoyed staying out in the country. We sure enjoyed having you. Thanks for the message on the scrabble board. Come again.

Home away from Home!

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home is just at it appears in the listing. It was very comfortable and clean upon arrival. It was so inviting that I didn't want to leave. We stayed here because our son was getting married in the area and we wanted a comfortable place to relax in between the wedding festivities.
Homeowners are great. Very friendly and helpful. If you are visiting the area, I would certainly recommend this property. A nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of the nearby city of Austin.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5
We LOVED this beautiful home. Our family gathered here from both coasts for the lead-in to our youngest daughter's wedding at a nearby vineyard. Our hosts were extremely hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed. They made sure the property was shipshape after a big storm the night we arrived so that we could host a bridal shower 2 days after we arrived. Members of our party enjoyed relaxing at the pool, driving the golf cart around the property and the nearby hiking trails. Thanks a million.

Family Gathering in the Country

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay at the Elder Country Home on the 4th of July weekend! The home has been recently restored/renovated with all of the beauty of a historic home but comfort of a new home. The kitchen was well stocked with all we needed for cooking. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable. The owners very hospitable and around if needed. We will return!

Friends Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Our group of college friends and our families get together every couple of months and we picked this location because it was centrally located for all of us. We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful or relaxing location. The house and the surrounding property are impeccable! The pictures do not do it justice. The house is amazing, with plenty of room for our group. There was never a moment of boredom for the two kids that were with us, and the adults were just as entertained. The owners went more than above and beyond to ensure that our stay was perfect. The little touches were greatly appreciated - thanks for the introduction to Round Rock Donuts! I highly recommend this to anyone who needs to get away from the hustle and bustle, but still has the city close by! We only left once to go into town! Thank you again, and we will definitely add this as one of our regular meeting spots.
