Experience the evolution of vacation travel - stress-free countryside living at this one-of-a-kind Texas Hill Country home. Situated among centuries-old live oaks on a mile of San Gabriel River frontage, 172 acres of working farmland, and full of history. This Georgetown farm is sure to captivate the whole group with its stunning views, terraced patios and original charm. Throughout this thoughtfully designed home, you'll marvel at unique touches that speak to its special appeal. From the hand-laid stone pulled from the river, to the pond with fountain. You'll even find framed reproductions of art painted by previous owner and artist C.P. Montague (who happened to be one of President Lyndon B. Johnson's favorites) decorating the walls. The open living area offers plenty of air conditioned space to catch up with friends, while the gourmet kitchen provides all you need to prep family-style meals, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. Curl up with a book by the wood-burning fireplace (wood provided), host family movie night on the 62" flat screen Smart TV and DVD player, or stream your favorite show through free Wi-Fi on your devices. For those of you needing to work from while visiting, the Internet tower is in the top pasture, so you will have hi-speed Internet! Two luxurious king suites come complete with light-filled sitting rooms and beautiful linens, while a queen sleeper sofa with an additional 4" mattress topper in the living alcove, or a 22" queen self-inflatable mattress with comfy bedding creates room for up to 6 travelers. If you brought the little one, a Pack-n-play and strap-in booster chair with tray, and a small canvas stroller are available too. There are two baths; one with a walk-in shower, the other with a square soaking tub. A front-load washer and dryer helps keep packing light.and addition An entertainer's paradise lies just outside! Relax with a glass of wine on multi-level terraced patios while listening to the song birds, or the fountain in the pond below. Fire up the charcoal grill and dine alfresco with the whole group. At dusk, a fire pit awaits for story swapping, S'mores making, and stargazing. Just 10 minutes down the road is historic Georgetown, with "The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas", with museums, wonderful farm-to-table restaurants and live music. Wolf Ranch in Georgetown is a destination shoppers delight; shopping at IKEA and the outlet mall is just 20 minutes away; and you'll be in the heart of Austin in 30 minutes. Or stay close to home and find great fishing and tubing in the San Gabriel River, along with 172 acres for hiking and birding. Be sure to check out our free farm tour where the whole family can learn about local fossils, plants, search for arrowheads, engage with the animals, or take tractor rides. Don't forget your pets! Open acres of leash-free space are a dog's dream come true. Ditch the city life for the serenity of the Texas Hill Country countryside and come see what it's like to live on a working farm and explore a living museum!

The Palette Pad at Scurlock Farms

Join the evolution in vacation stays! Looking for the perfect romantic getaway cabin? Look no further - our setting will capture your attention and inspire you. Cozy up in front of the fireplace, or enjoy the great outdoor fire pit/dining area, or take a nap together in the hammock. We have many guests at Scurlock Farms from the larger cities and are told they truly enjoy the peace and quiet in our country setting while visiting the area. Others are thinking of buying property and moving to the country and wanted to "test drive" staying in a rural setting. The "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas" with its many shops and dining opportunities is only 10 minutes away. Some choose to stay on the farm and enjoy the activities here, while others tour the wineries in the area, try out a different restaurant each evening (several farm-to-table), enjoy the live music available almost every night in Georgetown, go into Austin or shop the outlet malls in Round Rock. You get the idea...each one can have a unique experience. Simply watch the horses, cows and goats as they graze in the pastures, watch and listen to the bird activity from the beautiful outdoor seating area with beautiful Texas Hill Country terrain, or stroll down to the river bottom and hike along the river. Want to fish or learn how to fish, but don't want to bring all the equipment? No problem! Just let me know and I will give you our local fishing guide, John's, contact information. John will come to the farm and bring the bait and all the equipment, then give you a lesson! Or, if you are more adventurous, help us feed and hold the baby goats - two more born today, feed apples to Ginger and Duster, our two horses; help gather eggs in the evenings from our free-range chickens; "drive" a tractor; pick something for dinner from the in-season garden; or if your little ones have a green thumb, they can help plant in the spring or fall; have a bonfire down on the wide river banks; or gather your own pecans from the 20 acre orchard in November. Let me know if you would like a tour in a Polaris. I can show you around the farm, the river, hiking areas, and the animals. Deep in the heart of Texas in the Texas Hill Country, this was the art studio of well known Texas landscape artist, C. P. Montague, one of President Lyndon B. Johnson's favorites. It was designed around centuries-old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock picked up at the river on the property. Beautifully and comfortably furnished. New queen bed and quality linens. Georgetown is only a 10 minute drive away and you can stroll around "The Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas", eat in one of the many fine restaurants (several farm-to-table), or attend one of the many festivals held on the vibrant Georgetown Square throughout the year. Check out a bike at the Georgetown Visitor Center at 103 W. 7th Street on the Georgetown Square. Explore beautiful downtown Georgetown or the amazing hike and bike trails! Rentals are free! If you prefer to walk, pick up a brochure from the Visitor's Center on the Square and go on a self-guided walking tour of the historic home and business section of Georgetown and see many beautifully restored Victorian homes and read the stories behind them. Austin is a 30 minute drive away, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds staying at Scurlock Farms.
