Overview

Georgetown House Rental Photos and Description

2 large king bedroom suites, 2 full baths, sleeps 8 with queen sleeper & inflat.

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, the bird activity from the back patios with Texas Hill Country terrain, or stroll down to the river bottom and hike along the river or fish for catfish, blue gill or bass.

Deep in the heart of Texas, this large, open home 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 the most beautiful town square 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 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.

Farm Activities: Within walking distance to the San Gabriel River, Rocky Hollow is on a working 172 acre farm and has 1+ mile river frontage. Relax surrounded in rustic beauty with a clear view of the night sky and stars, perfect for stargazing. In the fall and winter, enjoy the fire pit as you relax outside; in the spring and summer, enjoy the breezes we always enjoy. Archaeology buffs can hunt the limestone river banks for a variety of fossils or the hillside for Tonkawa or Comanche Indian arrowheads. We have many birders stop along the property trying to catch site of the many species we have seen on the farm.

Weddings The patios have been the site of several weddings and bridal photos. Wedding parties have reserved both Rocky Overlook and The Palette Pad for accommodations.

About Owner Sheron Scurlock

Dan and I own a continuing education company providing CE for the insurance industry. I am also the licensing director for a small insurance company. Dan has retired and keeping up with the farm is now a full-time job.

We love to travel, garden and I am an avid reader.

Owner Sheron Scurlock purchased this house in 2010

Why Owner Sheron Scurlock chose Georgetown

When my mom and dad bought this beautiful piece of property, they gave each of their 5 children the option of building a home at a location of our choosing. My husband and I were the only ones that took them up on it.

After my dad died in 1986 my husband and I began buying the farm. When my mom died in 2010, she left her home and art studio to us.

We've raised our family here and made the same offer to our two sons and our youngest took us up on it and built a beautiful home for his family in the middle of the property.

Rocky Overlook and the studio are the heart of the farm and I could not even think of selling them. I didn't want them to fall in disrepair from not being used. Both are so unique that I wanted to share them.

My sisters helped me and we totally remodeled the interiors of both and the results have been spectacular. It has been so gratifying to share mama and daddy's dream home and talents with others.

In the house, I have a notebook of the story of their searching for and finding the property and building the houses. Also, the story of mama's painting and how she became C. P. Montague and a favorite of then President L. B. Johnson. The joy and appreciation that guests have when staying there are a living tribute to mama and daddy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our few days at Rocky Overlook were a very pleasant experience. There was more than enough room to do the work required to create the flower arrangements for the wedding reception for our son and his bride. A lot of preparation was required, and the owners of the property were very helpful in helping us find where we could find flowers and other supplies we needed. Overall a great experience.



The weather was absolutely beautiful after a spectacular thunderstorm. We all mostly were outside in the very accommodating outdoor areas with nice decking and tables for the rehearsal dinner the night before the wedding. Many people walked down to look at the water features to see the frogs and other wildlife that were seeming to want to be included in our special evening.



The very spacious home was a great place for us, and some of the groomsmen to show up on the day of the wedding and iron their clothes and otherwise prepare themselves for the upcoming wedding. Again, a wonderful place to spend a few days. I have to mention that the local farm dogs would show up in the morning just to say hello and then they would move along to do their farm dog stuff.



I would be remiss if I failed to say that we had many of the cousins of our son and daughter show up and rent one of the other homes on the Scurlock Farms property. I have to say that I would go there again if I would be in the area - I would also suggest that the Lois Perkins Chapel at Southwestern University is a wonderful place to see - the stained glass windows and the pipe organ is in itself something special. The rolling green hills, farm animals to be seen along with the creeks, the river and wildlife are special.



Thank you very much to the Scurlock family for making our stay so very pleasant.

Best Regards from the Ste**** Family

We LOVE Scurlock Farms!

  • 5 of 5
So peaceful & relaxing. Our family of four (including 11 year old boy and 9 girl) spent four days at Scurlock Farms during the first week in January. The home was so nice and comfortable - and perfect for the four of us but large enough to accommodate several more. Sheron & Dan made sure we had everything we needed including fresh firewood for the chilly nights. The kids enjoyed the dogs & horses - but especially the baby goats. We all loved the river which is a short walk through their pecan grove and we felt like we had the entire river to ourselves as we never saw another soul. We made good use of the built-in smoker on the patio and cozied up by the fireplace after dinner. The home is clean and well stocked with everything you would need including games, books, lots of local history and really comfortable beds! We hope to get back in the spring when all is blooming. Thanks again Sheron & Dan for a memorable stay!

Peaceful setting, close to Austin and nightlife

  • 5 of 5
Large home with all the creature comforts minutes away from downtown Georgetown, restaurants, shopping and just a hop away from Austin. Quaint rural setting with large fields for our dog to run in - the property extends to the river making a nice jaunt/exploration excursion for the family. The owner was very nice providing home made muffins and fulfilled our special requests. Great place to stay - highly recommend.

Owner's Response: I really think our furry four-legged friends enjoy the freedom offered and enjoy exploring the farm as much as our people guests! We would love to have you visit again in the spring when the farm is full of wildflowers.

Wonderful, family friendly getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The home is so cozy and full of character! 4 adults and 2 kids stayed very comfortably. The kids loved playing outside on the gorgeous patio. We enjoyed the short walk to the river and spent hours searching for treasures and just being outdoors. The house is well stocked and the owners make checking in and out super easy! We also enjoyed Sheron's delicious muffins. What a treat! Would definitely go back!

Great property for a family weekend away

  • 4 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Scurlock Farms. The house was beautiful as well as the rest of the property. The place is ideal for a family with everything you need to cookout and relax. I personally enjoyed the ability to hike around the property as well as bird along the water.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Rocky Overlook at Scurlock Farms. Most guests do enjoy being able to get out and hike around. Birders enjoy the variety of terrain the farm offers with the many species of birds. 2/3 of all birds seen in TX can be found in Williamson Country at differing times of the year. Recent guests that have birded with guides all over the world saw a lifer while visiting the farm. I do hope you can come again.

Relaxation away from it all...

  • 5 of 5
We highly enjoyed our stay at the property, it really had a feel of a home away from home. Getting to relax on the very open and spacious patio while grilling and enjoying drinks with friends was the highlight of the stay!

Owner's Response: Victor, It is amazing how much guests enjoy the patio area - many live out there for about 9 months of the year! Guests that left Monday saw 2 deer and also had an awesome time. It makes a great place to come home to after a day of sight seeing or shopping in Georgetown, Austin or Salado. I would love to have you visit Rocky Overlook at Scurlock Farms again!

Perfect country retreat

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a quiet, comfortable getaway in Hill Country and stayed 8/16-8/20. Very satisfied - definitely will make our back to visit.
The home has a wonderful country atmosphere. My wife and daughters all agreed that they felt at home almost as soon as they walked in. (Sheron's homemade muffins helped.) We found everything we needed in the kitchen. Both bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. Living areas are open and bright.
The terraced back patio is a work of art. We spent much of our time there simply enjoying the peace and quiet.
For those who like to dine out, Georgetown is a few minutes away with several options for meals. Really enjoyed the town square and shops. Also convenient to Austin.
Pet friendly as well - our two dogs loved the open areas and the short walk through the Pecan grove to the river.
Sheron and Dan, thank you for the hospitality, we will be seeing you again soon!
