Overview

Texas Hill Country Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 BR / 1 Bath Apartment, 1 1/2 Blocks Off the Town Square

Beautifully furnished and decorated apartment located in the circa 1880, Mattie Rousser House. This historic home was divided into three lovely apartments during the depression era. Enjoy the two bedroom suite comfortably furnished with queen beds, down pillows, high thread count hotel sheets, and ample closet space. Additional sheets and blankets are in the front armoire. You will find a nicely appointed bathroom with a pocket door between the full tile shower and the toilet/vanity powder room. There is an additional door from the Master bedroom to the shower room, so you can use it as a powder room, a full bath or a Master bath. Hair dryer, shampoo, hair conditioner and towels are provided. The living area is a great place to relax with a very comfortable leather couch, flat screen TV with cable and internet. The eat in kitchen is adjacent with a antique drop leaf table, full appliances, dishes, silverware, and spices. It is ready to make a meal or take a 90 second or so walk to several eateries . Relax on the shaded patio or take a leisurely stroll to enjoy the many quaint shops on the square. A Keurig K-cup coffeemaker with stocked options awaits you when you wake, or stumble a few hundred feet to the Galaxy Bakery & Coffee House (Rated #4 nationally on the Learning Channel’s Bodacious Bakery segment.) Or a little over 2 blocks will get you to the Monument Café where Mathew McConaughey (his mom lives here) invited his good friend Guy Fieri,( host of The Food Networks “Diners-Drive Inns and Dives”) to his favorite organic based diner for some food festivities.

We personally searched across the Nation for the best place to live. Come and see why we chose Georgetown, Texas as the perfect fit.

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 apartment 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 apartment 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 thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Mattie Rousier House; you have taken care of every little detail. I hope you keep Apt. 2. in your VRBO rental pool. I would love to come back and visit Georgetown when I have more time to visit. Thank you for accommodating us on such short notice.

We have stayed at this property several times over the past few years. Lawrence does a great job maintaining the home. We always find it warm and inviting. It has truly become our Texas home. It is so perfectly located and well appointed that it fits our needs perfectly. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

Wedding Weekend -nearby Venue two blocks away

Cozy and quaint cottage for four. Clean and fresh, with antique accommodations. Owner willing to assist with requests. Mattie's manor is divided into two separate residences. Nearby Georgetown square and restaurants.

Very pleasant.

Charming and clean easily walkable to Square

  • 5 of 5

The description for this house was accurate... it's an absolutely adorable cottage and would be comfortable to stay in for a weekend or extended period of time. We stayed here with our toddler daughter and it was perfect space for her to play during the day and have her own space for bedtime. Perfect for family, though the bathroom may be a little small for 2 couples, but definitely doable. It's walkable to the Square for restaurants and shops, though grocery or pharmacy for necessities are only drivable (no big deal). We would absolutely stay here again.

Great location, beautifully furnished, charming.

  • 5 of 5

This house is newly reinovated with beautiful furnishings and very comfortable. Our host was very responsive and accommodating as well as friendly. The location couldn't be better. One block from the town square and an excellent restaurant where we are at least once a day! The entire experience was wonderful and we look forward to our next visit, which will be soon.
