Looking for the perfect romantic getaway cabin? Look no further - our setting will capture your attention and inspire you.
Cozy up in front of the fireplace, or enjoy the great outdoor fire pit/dining area, or take a nap together in the hammock.
We have many guests to Scurlock Farms from the larger cities and are told they truly enjoy the peace and quiet in our country setting while visiting the area.
Some choose to stay on the farm and enjoy the activities here, while others tour the wineries in the area, try out a different restaurant each evening, enjoy the live music available almost every night in Georgetown, go into Austin or shop the outlet malls in Round Rock. You get the idea.
Simply watch the horses, cows and goats as they graze in the pastures, watch and listen to the bird activity from the beautiful outdoor seating area with beautiful Texas Hill Country terrain, or stroll down to the river bottom and hike along the river.
Want to fish or learn how to fish, but don't want to bring all the equipment? No problem! Just let me know and I will give you John's contact information, our local fishing guide. John will come to the farm and bring the bait and all the equipment, then give you a lesson!
Or, if you are more adventurous, help us feed and hold the goats (even hold the babies); feed apples to Ginger and Duster, our two horses; help gather eggs in the evenings from our free-range chickens; "drive" a tractor; pick something for dinner from the in-season garden; or if your little ones have a green thumb, they can help plant in the spring or fall; gather your own pecans from the 19 acre orchard in November.
Let me know if you would like a tour in a Polaris. I can show you around the farm, the river, hiking areas, and the animals.
Deep in the heart of Texas, this was the art studio of well known Texas landscape artist, C. P. Montague, and was designed around centuries old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock picked up at the river on the property. Beautifully and comfortably furnished. New queen bed and quality linens.
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 (several farm-to-table), or attend one of the many festivals held on the vibrant Georgetown Square throughout the year.
Check out a bike at the Georgetown Visitor Center at 103 W. 7th Street on the Georgetown Square. Explore beautiful downtown Georgetown or the amazing hike and bike trails! Rentals are free!
If you prefer to walk, pick up a brochure from the Visitor's Center on the Square and go on a self-guided walking 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.
Owners are the family of renowned Texas landscape artist C.P. Montague. The Palette Pad has been lovingly restored to preserve her legacy.
Dan and I both grew up in Rockdale, TX, a small town 45 minutes East of Georgetown. We attended Baylor University, then had careers in the insurance industry. Dan retired 10 years ago, and I retired in 2015. We love having full time to be able to devote to Scurlock Farms!
I am the oldest of 5 and Dan and I have lived on the farm since 1971. None of my siblings had an interest in living here, so after our dad died in 1986, Dan and I began acquiring the farm from my mom.
We have raised our family here, and our grandchildren have been raised on the farm. We absolutely love it and feel blessed to have had the opportunity to enjoy this piece of earth. We look forward to sharing it with our guests.
Sheron Scurlock, Owner purchased this cabin in 1968
I grew up on a farm in Rockdale TX and could not wait to get away from the farm when I graduated. Dan was raised in town, also in Rockdale.
When my parents offered all their children a home spot on the farm, Dan and I were the only ones that took them up on it. By then, I couldn't wait to get out of the city and back to the country!
After my dad died in 1986, Dan and I acquired all but the 6 acres around The Palette Pad and the big house. When my mom died in 2010 she left the two homes and 6 acres to me and Dan, knowing we would not sell them.
Both homes have been lovingly restored and we have totally enjoyed sharing them and their history with our guests.
David, our youngest son, is our chief engineer, and he and Dan enjoy doing farm things together. The past few years have really been interesting.
In April, 2009 a tornado literally blew away our 'new' 72' barn. They spent the next year building two barns - this time red barns, which I had always wanted.
September, 2010 we had a major 500 year flood which wiped out 1/2 mile fence along the river and washed up mountains of debris against trees in the bottom. We have bulldozed, planted grass and Dan and David replaced 1/2 mile of pipe fence.
Jack is our Great Pyrenees dog - a fuzzy white bear. He will greet you if you walk by - he loves people, children and other dogs.
In 2013 we were fortunate enough to purchase the adjoining 60 acre farm and 3 bedroom home at the end of our drive. It has been totally remodeled and is also a vacation rental home we named Indian Bluff. That home in on the highest bluff along the San Gabriel River for miles. The Tonkawa Indians camped and hunted all along the entire farm.
When my parents searched for the perfect land for their dream home, they had three requirements: water, rocks and live oak trees. This piece of property fit the bill perfectly.
It is really special as the terrain is so varied. The top pastures are prairie, the steep wooded bluff divides the property down the middle, then the bottom pastures are wooded, and the river bottom forms the 1+ mile northern border of the farm with the beautiful San Gabriel River and its wide, white limestone banks. A spring-fed creek also runs across the property before emptying into the San Gabriel River.
Any of the homes provide great bird watching lodging. We have had birders from many states and countries and all have seen a "lifer" while visiting the farm. Did you know that 2/3 of all birds found in the state of Texas are found in Williamson County?!
Wildlife abounds and with the different terrains, the farm is a bird watcher's paradise!
This was a unique and truly "Texas" experience - not a cookie cutter hotel room, but a spacious apartment feel. Hosts were welcoming and provided muffins, coffee, and juice. They were helpful but not hovering. The studio sits by a bluff overlooking the river bottom with comfortable iron rockers, outdoor table and grill. We wished we had more time to enjoy the river, hiking, seeing the farm animals, etc. We loved the decor of landscape artist memorabilia and Texas theme and all the reading material and suggestions for the area. There were all sorts of nice touches - plenty firewood, books, games, soothing cd's, teas and fruit. It feels like an escape and spa. What a bargain for what is provided!
This was one of those lifetime memories! This farm is just behind the field of our home but because of our curiosity and after seeing it on HOMEAWAY I surprised my husband with a trip to stay there for a birthday weekend. It was so much more than we even expected. The walks that we took, the incredible tour of the property by Sheron the owner, the trips down to the San Gabriel River, the animals on the property, all were highlights of the trip. The most wonderful thought was staying in the studio where her mother painted her famous paintings. I've seen her paintings over the years but had no idea that we were going to be staying in the place where she painted. There is so much history here. Even if you just go for the incredibly delicious muffins that Sheron bakes for you it's worth the trip! We are coming back every year for our birthdays.
Beautiful scenery, charming hosts, delightful accommodations.
My girlfriend and I came here from Baton Rouge to get away for our Spring break. We loved it here. The farm is absolutely beautiful and Dan and Sharon are the nicest people. When we weren't walking around the farm, we went into Georgetown or Austin. Georgetown has plenty of shopping and things to do. Our favorite was Inner Space Caverns. We also loved that our German Shepherd could come and roam the farm off the leash. She loved terrorizing the goats from the other side of the fence. This is definitely one of our favorite vacations, and we will be coming back in the future. Thank you Dan and Sheron!
David and I were beyond impressed with our stay here. Sheron was so accommodating and helped make our weekend getaway simply perfect. From naps, to hold baby goats, to warm muffins and the fire pit. From the pecan grove to the breezy bluff, to the river bank and starry sky - it was all heavenly! We're already talking about when we'll have to come back!
Thank you for sharing such a perfect spot.
The pet friendliness was perfect. Vinci had a blast!!
We had a wonderful time - beautiful property, cabin and Sharon and Dan were the best hosts ever!!
Great views, great hosts, great accommodations, great scenery.

A favorite of guests is a tour of the farm in a Polaris where they learn about the history of the farm, flora and fauna, hiking areas and the river, and of course, the farm animals. Just let me know if you would like a tour.
The Palette Pad is on a working farm with 1+ miles of river frontage, lots of hiking, fossils, fishing and great bird watching opportunities. The farm was a camp ground for Tonkawa Indians, so many arrowheads have been found.
