Delightful family holiday

My husband and I had the best time celebrating Christmas at Rocky Overlook. From the moment we walked through the front door, we felt at home. The lights were on and soft music was playing. There was even a small Christmas tree set up for us to enjoy and lots of seasonal touches like electric votives and potted poinsettias. So thoughtful!
The home has all the charm you’d expect of a B&B – plus fresh fruit, coffee/tea, various toiletries and fluffy towels, all very clean. The rooms are all beautifully decorated with interesting local artifacts and Texas landscape artwork. The hosts have provided a binder with information about the artist C.P. Montague; reading her history really brings the home alive.
The fireplace was a bonus during a chilly week. Although there’s a large screen television in the living area, we did not turn it on once. We enjoyed reading in front of the fire and playing family boardgames.
The kitchen is spacious and well supplied with staples. I brought my rolling pin and perishables and was able to finish my holiday cookie baking with no problem, with a fantastic view from the kitchen windows all the way down the bluff. The owners’ attention to detail is evident in the gorgeous landscaping, the cascading waterfall that feeds into a goldfish pond, and the beautiful patios, where we enjoyed morning coffee and fruit, grilling up some dinner and watching the stars.
All the personal touches and amenities made us very comfortable, and with such a central location for sightseeing, this home is a great value for anyone. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Rocky Overlook! It sounds like you were able to enjoy many of the amenities. We just stopped and visited with guests celebrating their 9th anniversary. They had just returned from breakfast at the Monument Cafe in Georgetown - a fantastic place to eat any meal! and had been down to the barn and enjoyed the antics of the baby goats bouncing around and the horses hoping for a handout of apples. Jimmy was freading a book, enjoying the outdoor seating area and said they were going down to explore the river this afternoon. Our central location is a definite plus - close to so many activities and venues! Looking forward to your being able to return to Rocky Overlook before too long!
