You will feel like you are visiting a beautiful country home but will only be a few minutes from the city of Georgetown. Wilbarger Point is situated 1 mile east of downtown Georgetown overlooking a green belt and Southwestern University. The villa is located behind our home, The Jesse Cooper House, which is on the Texas Historical Registry. We have just re-built the villa. We've used reclaimed wood on all of the floors through the house. There is a spacious porch on the front and a comfortable covered deck on the back with a great view. Your furry friends are welcome at the villa. We live on site and are available if you need us. We only ask that you treat the villa as if it were your own.

About Susan Snow
Jimmy and I are both retired. We have always dreamed of living in a historical home. We moved to Georgetown in 1986. We bought the Jesse Cooper house in 1996. We opened the Jesse Cooper Cottage first. We are now ready to open the Wilbarger Villa. We have really enjoyed providing a clean and cozy place for guests to Georgetown who needed a place to stay. We have hosted weekend guests, people who had to be out of their home because of flood damage, people who were between houses in the housing market, people who want to be near family during the winter months, people here because of doctor visits, traveling doctors and nurses, and family and friends. We love to garden. Jimmy loves to hunt and fish and he loves to work on Troy Bilt tillers on the side. I love to sew and quilt, but most of all I love spending time with our grandchildren. Our pets are part of our family, so we feel it important that our guests can bring their pets with them when they visit our rentals.
Susan Snow purchased this House in 1996
Why Susan Snow chose Georgetown
After searching for just the right "old House" we found the Jesse Cooper House on Wilbarger. We tried to purchase it for 3 years and finally we were successful. We love the location, love the character of the place, love having a place to garden, and love being in the country.
What makes this House unique
The property is quiet, situated on 3 acres. We love that we are close to the city of Georgetown, with all of the comforts of being in the country. The Villa on Wilbarger has just been completely rebuilt from top to bottom. We were able to use reclaimed lumber for the floors, trim, and accent wall. The front porch will give you a beautiful view of the sunrise and the deck on the back will give you a beautiful view of Georgetown and its amazing sunsets. There is a small fenced backyard for your furry friend. During gardening season, we are always happy to share our bounty. This is a new listing, but we are not new to VRBO. We have an additional one bedroom cottage that is adjacent to the Villa that is also listed on VRBO, called the Jesse Cooper Cottage, VRBO #589211. The success of the cottage is what inspired us to turn the villa into a VRBO.

Thank you for the lovely place to call home for a few days! We have stayed in numerous VRBO/Home Away properties, and some very upscale ones, but never have we felt so completely at home and relaxed. The cabin/villa felt like home, and the wood floors and walls were stunning! All the extras were incredible...fully equipped kitchen, extra paper goods, full size shampoo/cond/body wash, everything for that first up of coffee in case you forget something, fridge full of bottled water, and homemade caramel corn!
The list really goes on and on!!! It was really like you were preparing for a visit from family instead of strangers.
The property is beautiful, and the views were amazing!!! Loved watching the sunset from the back porch, with the lovely city of Georgetown in the backdrop, and a glass of wine in hand. Ahhhhh...so peaceful...
Our little fur babies enjoyed the stay as well!! Thank you so much for welcoming them and having a fenced in area for them to run around and take care of business. They enjoyed their stay and meeting new friends on the other side of the fence! :)
Thank you so much for the great little escape from the madness that is selling a house! We were able to relax and recover from the past couple of weeks of insanity. It was wonderful to have such a beautiful home away from home, with property owners who make you feel like family.
Remember the feeling of going to stay at grandma’s house or going home after being away for a while? That’s how it feels here...you just feel at peace and loved! We will definitely be back and recommending to friends and family! Thank you!!!
Cindy, thank you for your kind words! Your description of the Villa is everything we hoped it would be for visitors to Wilbarger Point.
Susan and Jimmy

Great place for our family
This is a wonderful place with all the necessities. Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
The Villa and Georgetown are great
Great country location that is still close to everything you need. The Villa is remodeled very nicely and is very well stocked. The owners are very friendly and willing to help with anything. We will definitely recommend it to friends and family because we now live only 5 minutes from there!
We are glad that we could provide a cozy place for your family to stay during your transition to Georgetown. Blessings for much happiness here!
Amazing, Peaceful, and Clean,
One of the best places to stay in Georgetown!!! Susan and Jimmy go above and beyond to make it feel like your own home. The house is beautiful, super clean, and peaceful. What also makes it one of a kind are the gardens, the views of the sunset and sunrise, and the beautiful people behind it! Will defiently be back!
Thumbs up for The Villa on Wilbarger...
We (2 senior couples attending a nearby wedding) quite enjoyed our stay at The Villa on Wilbarger. Newly remodeled and nicely furnished, clean, quiet and comfortable. A hiccup with the plumbing was taken care of with due dispatch by our hosts. Would stay again!
We are 1/2 mile from the 130 toll road. It takes about 30 minutes to get to ABIA from here. Downtown Georgetown is 2 miles away. Georgetown is full of fun activities from live music, to a beautiful park, an amazing walking trail that will take you to the lake and to great restaurants. The local baseball team, The Round Rock Express is always a fun outing. We can recommend restaurants and help you find whatever fun your heart desires.
