Experience rural life at Indian Bluff - a very comfortable, beautifully furnished home sitting in the middle of a 172 acre working farm. Better than a B&B or a bed-in-a-box on the interstate (hotel room).
Explore the spring fed creek in front of the home and see many 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 in front of the fire pit.
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 as many have been found.
Large king master suite, two queen bedrooms and guest bath. The dining table has a large leaf and will seat 8.
This home is ideal for multi-generational families, family reunions, families with children, romantic get aways, and girl's weekends.
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 Indian Bluff 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 every state in the United States and 15 different countries.
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.

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.
The views from the bluff are spectacular! The photo of the sunset over the river is taken from the bluff behind Indian Bluff.
Experience rural farm life in luxury and comfort! Enjoy a free tour of the farm in a Polaris and get up-close and personal with the farm animals, learn about the flora and fauna of the farm, and visit the river.
This house is so comfortable and offers so much more than most vacation rentals like coffee and teas, basic seasonings, paper goods and soaps/shampoos. The owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome and share info about their town, of which they are admirably proud. It was an awesome stay and to be repeated.
I especially enjoy their interest in the native birds and animals.
The tour of the farm on the little farm vehicle was great fun and educational, too. Loved it and the commentary on the farm's history and features!
The accommodations were fantastic and we all loved hanging out on the porch and fire pit- great for our family while celebrating our daughters graduation!!
I was there with 5 of my high school girlfriends (class of '64), and we had a great time. Loved the Scurlocks and the farm and Georgetown and every little detail. We couldn't have found a nicer place to get away.
Love this property! It had great access to the San Gabriel! We had an entire stretch of the river all tho ourselves! Great for fishing, swimming, tubing, etc. There was plenty of firewood for a nice long fire on a cool night!!!
We absolutely loved it and plan to return for a longer stay!!!
Friendly hosts and a comfortable home make for a great experience.
Loved the house, the view, the access to the river, short distance to Georgetown and Waco.
Indian Bluff at Scurlock Farms is ideally located. We have several wineries in the area, some with tasting rooms in Georgetown. Inner Space Caverns is a fantastic cavern discovered during the construction of IH 35. Be sure and go to Blue Hole, a local blue lagoon 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 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 wares and goodies. See first rate productions at the beautifully restored Palace Theater on the Square. Shop at the award winning Wolfe 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.
