About the property

1 BR/1 BA cottage overlooking Georgetown behind the Jesse Cooper Historic Home

The Jesse Cooper cottage sits just behind the Historical Jesse Cooper House built in 1911. We are 2 1/2 miles from Georgetown sitting atop the hill on Wilbarger Point.The address of the cottage is 259 Wilbarger Point. You can see Georgetown, as well as Southwestern University from our hilltop. The cottage has one bedroom and one bath. It is furnished and decorated to make you feel at home and to give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the view. The kitchen is fully equipped with all needed appliances. The cottage has a full size washer and dryer, direct tv, flat screen tv, dvd blue ray player and is centrally heated and air conditioned. We are a pet friendly property. We have pets and are glad to allow you to bring your pet, with a special agreement with us. We love to garden, so you will be able to experience gardening (and possibly some fresh veggies), while you are here. We are 1/2 mile west of I-30 and 3 miles east of I-35. You have easy access to Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, and the Hill Country. We are willing to have a special dessert waiting for you in the cottage upon your arrival by special request. We live on-site, so are always happy to help with locations of places you would like to visit. We have tried to make the cottage a place that we would enjoy staying in.

About Susan or Jimmy Snow

Jimmy and I moved to Wilbarger Point, after searching for the perfect 'old house'. We have spent hours and hours giving the property the tender loving care it needed to bring it back to life. Susan is a retired elementary school teacher and Jimmy recently retired, after 41 years with the electric company. Our priorities are Faith, Family, and Friends. We love spending time with our family/ grand-kids, gardening, hunting, fishing, sewing, quilting, smocking, cooking, and canning. Our two children, Corrie and Josh, both graduated from Texas A & M. Their spouses also graduated from Texas A & M. We love living in Georgetown and are thrilled with the opportunity to share our place with others.

Susan or Jimmy Snow purchased this chateau / country house in 1995

Why Susan or Jimmy Snow chose Texas Hill Country

We both have always loved old houses and old things. When we moved to Georgetown, the historical properties always charmed us. We fell in love with San Gabriel park and spent many hours there when our kids were younger. When we learned of the Jesse Cooper House, we spent several years trying to make it ours. When the timing was right, it happened and we have been blessed to live here.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

From the hill, we have a wonderful view of the sunsets and sunrises. There is always a breeze. You get the feel of being out in the country, but also the luxury of being close to town.

Cozy and Comfortable!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year here at the cottage. We return here for many reasons - one of the best is Jimmy and Susan Snow. They are wonderful people always ready to answer questions, give direction, but most of all we have become friends. They are the best!! The cottage is just exactly what we need - a home away from home. It is comfortable, roomy, private, clean, has a big walk in closet and everything you need. It sits on a hill and at night you can see the lights in Georgetown and if there is a concert going on in town somewhere, you can hear the music. If is it a clear night, you can see thousands of stars. We have already booked again for next year.

Great location and lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to the Cooper Cottage. It was perfectly located close to Round Rock and Austin! Everything we needed was supplied (towels, fridge, tv, microwave, coffee, etc).

We appreciated that they left out doggie bowls for our pups. Our pups really got a kick out of the heater in the bathroom! Perfect height for them :)

We would definitely recommend the cottage if you're ever visiting the area. We loved the privacy, location, how clean it was, everything about it. Thanks!

The perfect place to stay while visiting family in Georgetown.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very cute, clean and comfortable cottage. It was the perfect place to come home to after a busy day and sit and watch the sunset. The Snows were very nice and made us feel comfortable and welcome.

Cozy little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage for 2 nights and found it to be very welcoming. It has everything needed for a great stay. It is well kept and very clean, the cleanest VRBO that we have ever rented. The bathroom had more than enough towels, there are extra blankets and quilts to stay comfortable as well as a fully stocked kitchen for any cooking. We slept very well on the queen sized bed. The cottage is located close to downtown and everything you might need. We would definitely stay at the cottage again if we venture through Georgetown in the future. Although we didn't get a chance to meet the owners, they left us a delicious snack of caramel pecan popcorn to enjoy..and we did. Don't hesitate to rent this cottage, you won't be disappointed.

As I told Susan and Jimmy this is a little slice of heaven in Georgetown.

We needed a place to stay for a month while we closed on our house in Georgetown and I am so thankful we found the cottage and met Susan and Jimmy! The cottage was just as described. Clean, spacious, cozy and private. They have really thought of everything you will need for your stay. From the little kitchen fully equipped to make meals, the tv, internet and to the laundry room needed to wash clothes. We felt so comfortable and at home there. We also had our 9 month old goldendoodle with us and the accommodations for her were just as great! She had a nice little fenced in yard to run around and enjoy. The property sits on a bluff and you can see all of Georgetown. It is peaceful and has such a great view of Georgetown. In addition, Susan brought me fresh veggies from her garden and invited us to spend 4th of July with them watching the fireworks. Jimmy took our two boys for a ride on his 4 wheeler and they had such a great time. Susan and Jimmy are so thoughtful and friendly. They went above and beyond for our family and I feel blessed we crossed paths with them. They are truly wonderful people! I would recommend anyone to stay here. It will not disappoint.

Renting Jesse Cooper Cottage was a great decision!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Jesse Cooper Cottage for 2 months. We needed a "home away from home" while in town to help care for our new grand daughter. The cottage was comfortable, clean and cozy. Jimmy and Susan were gracious hosts and we would not hesitate to stay here again!! We will be back!!

The city of Georgetown has much to offer. The square has live entertainment, restaurants, shopping, and wineries. The San Gabriel Park is amazing. We think that Georgetown has the best Mexican food in the area, and that is at Dos Salsa (you will probably see us there.) We are close to great shopping at the outlet mall in Round rock. The hill country isn't far, and, of course, Austin is full of things to do.
