Overview

Texas Hill Country House Rental Photos and Description

Indian Bluff - Spectacular River Views from 70+ foot Bluff

Feel your stress melt away as you go down a country lane to Indian Bluff - a very comfortable, beautifully furnished home sitting in the middle of a 172 acre working farm - similar to a bed and breakfast, but better!.

Explore the spring fed creek in front of the home and see hundred of fossils in the limestone banks, fish or simply throw rocks in the San Gabriel River.

Large live oaks, centuries old, make great shady spots for sitting outdoors. Enjoy the outdoor patio in back and watch the spectacular sunsets as you enjoy a glass of wine or beer after your day's activities.

Enjoy the fire-pit in the fall and winter seasons. Many a S'mores and marshmallow have been roasted over it.

As you walk about, watch for arrow heads - many have been found.

Large king master suite, two queen bedrooms and guest bath. 22' high queen inflatable mattress also available. The dining table has a large leaf and will seat 8. Additional chairs in bedrooms.

This home is ideal for multi-generational families, family reunions, romantic get-aways, and girl's weekends.

About Sheron Scurlock, Owner

My mom and dad purchased the original 112 acres in 1968 and after my dad died, we began buying it from my mom. She passed away in 2010 and we inherited her home and art studio, which are also on the farm. Not wanting to sell the homes, we remodeled them and began letting others share the beauty and history of the homes and the farm in late 2010 (HomeAway #903120 and #369386).

In 2013 we were fortunate to be able to buy the adjoining 60 acre farm and the 3 bedroom home on it. We have totally remodeled that home and furnished it very comfortably. I have been using it as overflow rentals from the other homes listed, but decided to go ahead and give it its own listing.

Dan and I have had a ball meeting people from all over the United States and the world.

Dan and I both have been in the insurance business since college. We have both retired and are enjoying spending more time on the farm. Between the 3 vacation rentals, running a 172 acre farm, church activities and volunteering, we are very busy.

Why Sheron Scurlock, Owner chose Texas Hill Country

We truly live in one of the most beautiful areas of Texas, and certainly one of the prime spots along the San Gabriel River. Guests enjoy the mile of river frontage, fishing, hiking, fossil and arrow head hunting, pecan harvest, or simply being lazy on the patio enjoying a book or drink under the huge live oaks. In the evening listen for the owls as they call to each other.

What makes this house unique

The views from the bluff are spectacular! The photo of the sunset over the river is taken from the bluff behind Indian Bluff.

Great Staff Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Scurlock Farms staff and Indian Bluff property were outstanding. Very clean and a home away from home. Sheron was great and very helpful in setting up our stay. Her Blueberry muffins are amazing. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to a stay in the future. ~ Anna Castillo Southwestern Intramural & Recreational Activities

Very very cozy place to stay! Wonderful hospitality! The delicious muffins were enjoyed by all! I recommend hiking to the river and watching the sunrise! It is gorgeous! Don't forget to bring your camera! Perfect place for our family to spend the weekend!

Owner's Response: It was nice to meet you and your family while you stayed with us at Scurlock Farms to visit more of your family in Sun City. The sunsets and the sunrises are spectacular from either the high bluffs at Indian Bluff and down on the banks of the river. I am glad you got to witness one of them! How did your pets enjoy the stay at the farm? Most love it and I am glad you got to bring them! Hopefully you can come see us again in a different season - fall or winter to enjoy the fire pit and fireplace or in the spring to see the many, many wildflowers around the farm! I am glad you enjoyed the made-from-scratch homemade muffins. I use real butter and eggs from my free-range chickens. They are a favorite of guests!

quiet, has everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six really enjoyed our stay at indian bluff. It is quiet and relaxing with lots of nice views of the river fairly close to the house. The owners are right down the road and could not have been any more accomodating. I would love to stay there again.

Nice to go 'home' every evening

  • 4 of 5

After spending all day in meetings, it was nice for our family group of five to be together and relax in a home environment rather than seclude ourselves in separate hotel rooms every evening. The house was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, we did not have lot of time to explore the property or float the San Gabriel (which looked very inviting in 102 degree temps!), but we did walk to the bluffs and see the river. We were glad to be able to bring our small dog along and would book again if the need arises.

Owner's Response: I am glad you were able to stay with us at Scurlock Farms after being in stressful meetings all day. I hope you can come again and be able to relax more and enjoy more down time on the farm and some of the great activities in Georgetown itself.

Beautiful, comfortable, fun, unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the whole experience of staying in Georgetown. Spending time in the country but close enough to Georgetown and Austin to take in the sites and activities.

A baby goat was born while we were there. Saw road runners, horses, and loved Jack, their beautiful, white, friendly dog.

We enjoyed tubing on the river. We went boating on the lake. Zipline Lake Travis was the best Zipline I have ever done!

The house was plenty big with comfy beds and a well furnished kitchen. Delightful!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you were able to use Scurlock Farms as your home base while enjoying many of the activities in the area. I think the Lake Travis Zipline is the best I have done, too, with the last run 1/2+ mile run at 55 to 60 mph, partly over the water!! I know your group enjoyed tubing in the San Gabriel, putting in at Mankin's Crossing and tubing down to the farm. One of your young adults told me this was the best tubing he had ever done! The water is perfect for tubing right now. Hope you can visit Scurlock Farms again before too long! Oh, 3 sets of twins and a single baby goat were born yesterday!!

Lovely property. Very well appointed accomodations. Homemade muffins upon arrival.

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what we needed to celebrate my daughter's graduation from SU with family and friends. So nice to have everyone together in one place instead of spread out over hotel rooms. Well appointed rooms. Very comfortable beds. Thanks again!

Indian Bluff at Scurlock Farms is ideally located. We have several wineries in the area, some with tasting rooms in Georgetown. InnerSpace Caverns is a fantastic cavern discovered during the construction of IH 35. Be sure and go to Blue Hole, a local swimming spot just off of the square. Antique shop around the square in Georgetown or go to Salado, a 25 minute drive. See the Williamson County Museum, the Art Museum and the many art sculptures placed around town. Golf in one of the many great courses around Georgetown. Georgetown is host to many festivals - Red Poppy Festival in April, Halloween Fest in October, Christmas Stroll in December, and every First Friday and Saturday the square is full of booths filled with all kinds of goodies. See first rate live plays at the beautifully restored Palace Theater on the Square. Shop at the award winning Wolf Ranch in Georgetown, or the Premium Outlet Mall just 15 minutes away. Austin and its many activities are only 30 minutes away. Georgetown is blessed with many superb restaurants, so you try out as many as you have time for. 2/3 of all birds found in the state of TX are found in Williamson County. Many birders stop along the roadside of the farm to see the many varieties that make their homes here. We are blessed to have many habitats on the farm - forest, thicket, prairie and water frontage, so we attract a large variety of birds. Several guests that are avid birders have seen a lifer while visiting Scurlock Farms. Many arrow heads and artifacts have been found on the farm as Indian Bluff is the highest elevation for miles, and the Indians camped and lived on the land. Georgetown has miles and miles of hike and bike trails, connecting several beautiful parks. Be sure and visit the Visitor's Center on the Square and get a brochure for a walking tour around the beautifully restored Historic neighborhoods, or check out a free bike rental and tour the town on two wheels.

Notes:
With 1+ mile of frontage along the San Gabriel River, the river has been a favorite with young and old guests alike. Kids love finding fossils and fool's gold in the wide white limestone banks and throwing rocks in the river. Anglers have caught many blue gill, catfish and bass. Many arrowheads have been found on the farm and maybe you'll get lucky and spot one. Hike about the farm and enjoy the many bird species (2/3 of all birds found in Texas are found in Williamson County).
