Located just blocks from Southwestern University and historic downtown Georgetown Square. Beautiful San Gabriel Park is nearby which offers an abundance of family-friendly activities (picnic, fishing, disc golf, cycling or strolling along the river under the beautiful live oaks). Explore the new hike and bike trails along the San Gabriel River, stop for a refreshing drink or lunch on the outdoor patio at El Monumento as you make your way to 'blue hole' a historic swimming site that is still enjoyed by many today.
Take in the local sights of nearby towns on a scenic drive through the Texas Hill Country. You will find many interesting sights along the way. Wildseed Farms and numerous wineries in Fredricksburg are located west of Georgetown; to the north is Salado, a small town filled with antique shops on the historic Chisholm trail; and to the south is Round Rock which offers the Round Rock Outlet Mall and Austin for a UT game, Circuit of the America--Home of the Formula One US Grand Prix, SXSW music/film festival, Austin's famous Sixth Street, State Capitol and the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, to name a few of the numerous activities to chose from.
We chose this property because we were looking for a cute cottage close to Southwestern University and the historic Georgetown Square.
One of our missions is to offer parents and SU students a comfortable home away from home. We know from experience (3 kids who attended colleges throughout Texas and Arkansas), that it is much more comfortable to visit and catch up with your child in a home environment rather than in a hotel room or a busy restaurant. . .also, I have yet to meet a college student who does not appreciate a good home-cooked meal or some of dad's BBQ!
While our initial intention was to focus on the SU students and parents, we also were looking for a location that is close to the historic downtown square. The cottage is located within walking distance (approximately 10 blocks or approximately 1/4 mile) from the downtown square. Georgetown is a quaint historic town which offers many events on the square throughout the year. (I. e. First Friday each month, Market days, Poppy Fest, 4th of July, and Christmas Stroll to mention a few. See the Georgetown Chamber of Commerce website for more details of upcoming events.)
Large backyard with deck and gas grill for BBQ. Perfect gathering place while visiting your student attending Southwestern University. Most pets accepted, please contact me if you have any questions.
Out stay at 7th Heaven Cottage was awesome! The house is clean, comfortable and comes with all the amenities of home. Sheila welcomed us with snacks and drinks, and really thinks of everything to make traveling easy. We will definitely stay here again.
We have stayed at a lot of VRBO rental homes, and this was one of the best! My family of three and our little dog stayed here while in town for a wedding. The house was very clean with comfortable furniture. When we arrived the interior lights were on with soft music playing. Opening the fridge to see water bottles and assorted sodas was a welcome surprise and needed after a long drive. The house was one block from the Southwestern University campus. You can hear the noise from the college kids but it wasn't loud enough to keep us awake or be bothersome. We took a short 5 minute drive to the square for breakfast/lunch each day. This house is really in a great location. Our dog loved the backyard! Even though the house is small, it is perfect for a couple or small family. We would definitely stay here again!
The cottage was so sweet and perfect for our weekend getaway. It was clean, beautiful, and the amenities were thought through. We wished we had more than one night b/c it was a great escape!
Clean, Comfortable beds, convenient to downtown. Very nicely appointed. This was our 2nd time and it was just as pleasurable as first time. We have another stay scheduled next month.
This was a great house to stay in! I wish we could have stayed longer....I will definitely call for this property the next stay in the area. The house was very cozy and clean and had all anyone would need. The back porch was very peaceful sitting out in the morning....time flew by so quick sitting out there. Beautiful. Thank you Sheila! We had a very comfortable stay in your home.
The Heavenly Cottage gave us a very wonderful place to stay. Every thing was clean and nicely furnished. Even had a Keurig coffee maker. Was nice to sit on back porch in the morning and have coffee. We were close to the town square and enjoyed walking through al the shops. We would recommend this property to any small family.
