About Lawrence Romero

Tom and Debbie: We started our married life here in Georgetown in 2006. Tom has lived and worked in Georgetown for the past 20+ years. We started Green Earth Builders together in 2005 and purchased and remodel the property you will be staying in. Our first home together was an historic house on Main Street. Our second home was another historic home on Elm Street. We lovingly remodel both of these homes. We are now almost finished with our present old home on Wilbarger Point which overlooks Southwestern University and Georgetown. We have a passion for restoration and decorating. Green Earth Builders helps sponsor the annual Heritage Society Holiday Home tour. Our own and several of our client’s homes have been featured over the years.

Lawrence Romero purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Lawrence Romero chose Texas Hill Country

After looking nationwide, we feel that Georgetown offers the best balance of small town charm and friendliness in comparison to “Big City Livin”

What makes this cottage unique

Location! Location! Location!

The main house was built on the square and dragged by mule teams to its present location in the 1880’s. There is no closer vacation rental to the Historic County Square.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved the place. Everything that I required was there and your

anticipation of our needs was incredible. I loved the quietness and lovely

outdoor space. I will definitely stay there again when I travel to Austin,

if it isn't rented. (I fear that it won't be available if other travelers

find out what a great deal it is.)

Cute carriage house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this carriage house with all the old world charm and all the modern amenities. It appeared to have been recently renovated, and everything was sparkling clean! The kitchen had plenty of dishes and pots and pans, even a Keurig coffee maker if you're into that. It's on a quiet street in historic Georgetown, surrounded by beautiful old houses, yet only a short walk away to several restaurants and shops. Lawrence, the owner, was very welcoming and responsive to my questions. I would definitely stay here again if I'm in the area!

Excellent

A very accommodating landlord, excellent location, well maintained , comfortable and most well equipped, even an outdoor grill.

No need to bring household supplies for longer stays until you find out what is already available. We will return.

Perfect location for a weekend in Georgetown!

  • 5 of 5

As they say...location, location, location! The cottage was very clean and cozy - just perfect for a weekend getaway to visit our daughter at Southwestern. You are just steps off the square - on Friday night, you can softly hear the music from the square if you are sitting outside the cottage. The owner was very quick to respond to any questions we had. Definitely recommend for your stay in Georgetown!

Great weekend getaway cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is a wonderful cottage, perfect for a couple's weekend getaway! It was clean, comfortable and private. We noticed lots of welcoming extras when we arrived, such as cold bottled water, mints and brochures. It's walking distance to the Georgetown Square, featuring many restaurants and shops. We enjoyed exploring the regional wineries, a free Friday night concert on the square, and the Saturday morning vintage car show. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends!
