Located just blocks from Southwestern University and historic downtown Georgetown Square. Beautiful San Gabriel Park is nearby which offers an abundance of family-friendly activities (picnic, fishing, disc golf, cycling or strolling along the river under the beautiful live oaks). Explore the new hike and bike trails along the San Gabriel River, stop for a refreshing drink or lunch on the outdoor patio at El Monumento as you make your way to 'blue hole' a historic swimming site that is still enjoyed by many today.
Take in the local sights of nearby towns on a scenic drive through the Texas Hill Country. You will find many interesting sights along the way. Wildseed Farms and numerous wineries in Fredricksburg are located west of Georgetown; to the north is Salado, a small town filled with antique shops on the historic Chisholm trail; and to the south is Round Rock which offers the Round Rock Outlet Mall and Austin for a UT game, Circuit of the America--Home of the Formula One US Grand Prix, SXSW music/film festival, Austin's famous Sixth Street, State Capitol and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, to name a few of the numerous activities to chose from.
We chose this property because we were looking for a cute cottage close to the Southwestern University and the historic Georgetown Square.
Large backyard with deck and gas grill for BBQ. Perfect gathering place while visiting your student attending Southwestern University.
We have been here a month and it has been wonderful. The cottage was equipped as advertised and extremely comfortable. The location was perfect, walking distance to the square and many walking trails. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends.
First thought when I opened the door was, "Wow, I may never leave!". Charm, comfort, and great touches everywhere to make the stay even better. My pup loved romping through the leaves in the super backyard (fenced), and a good-sized deck right off the kitchen was perfect for morning tea and a bit of yoga. Location was excellent, in a quiet neighborhood close to lots of parks and town. The owner is wonderful, taking the time to email answers to my questions about the area before we got there, and bringing us the most delicious goodies from a local bakery when we arrived from our 20+ hr trek to get there!
Can't wait to visit again...7th Heaven is really an appropriate name for this spot!!
What an awesome place to stay! Sheila is so sweet. The cottage was so peaceful, lovely, cozy, and well equipped with everything you may need. It was a time to enjoy our family and friends. It was like a home away from home. We loved it and will be back to stay next year.
My daughters and I enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was very nice, cozy, and inviting. Our hostess was very helpful and friendly. She brought us some delicious cookies to welcome us. We attended a play at the theater, thanks to her telling me of it. We enjoyed our time at the square, so much to do and see. I would come back again and recommend this home to friends.
I really enjoyed my stay at 7th Heaven cottage. The cottage itself was charming, beautifully decorated and neat as a pin. Sheila did a great job of preparing and stocking the house for anything that you can imagine needing on vacation, from games and toiletries to kitchen utensils and kitchen staples. They even left some pet bowls out for my dog to use, which I thought was so sweet. You can rest assured that you don't have to pack half your house if you stay here. It's really got everything you could need.
The location, near the beautiful historic downtown Georgetown, cannot be beat. We enjoyed the short drives to Austin and the rest of the Hill Country.
We will definitely be back.
As soon as you walk in this cottage you are greeted by warm scents, welcoming atmosphere, a cool environment contrary to the heat of Texas, and a feeling of being home.
This cottage was everything that we expected and so much more than required. The hostess went the extra steps to make our stay enjoyable from fresh water in the fridge, bread, small stock of foodstuffs, amazing coffee maker with all the trimmings, to fresh towels, soap, shampoo, and conditioner in the bathrooms. As we walked around the place we were met with every detail imaginable.
The cottage has everything a small family needed. Fast wifi, cable, a washer and dryer, a list of local diners with reviews, tourist spots in the area, extra bedding and pillows in the closet, to the feather topped beds in each room. Anything that could be thought of was taken care of. The hospitality of the hostess was beyond expectations.
At one point in our stay the security system started acting up and beeping throughout the night. I sent an email letting the hostess know that this happened. By 8 am the next morning she came over, fixed the problem, checked to make sure that everything else was in order, and provided further contact details should anything else arise.
The home was situated in the heart of Georgetown, walking distance to the main square, local eateries, the university, as well as open fields to go for a morning or evening stroll. It is also within a 10 minute drive to two major shopping complexes and two different highways for longer journeys.
I would recommend this location as well as this hostess to anyone. I look forward to renting from her again on our next trip to Georgetown.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.
