Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Georgetown - Rocky Overlook
2 large king bedroom suites, 2 full baths, sleeps 8 with queen sleeper & inflat.
As you leave the hustle and bustle of Austin you will literally feel your stress and cares melt away as you drive down the country lane to the house. Watch the horses and goats as they graze in the top pasture, the bird activity from the back patios with Texas Hill Country terrain, or stroll down to the river bottom and hike along the river or fish for catfish, blue gill or bass.
Deep in the heart of Texas, this large, open home was designed around centuries old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock, picked up at the river on the property.
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 we have been blessed with, or attend one of the many festivals held on the square throughout the year.
Pick up a brochure from the Visitor's Center on the square and go on a self-guided 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.
Farm Activities: Within walking distance to the San Gabriel River, Rocky Hollow is on a working 172 acre farm and has 1+ mile river frontage. Relax surrounded in rustic beauty with a clear view of the night sky and stars, perfect for stargazing. In the fall and winter, enjoy the fire pit as you relax outside; in the spring and summer, enjoy the breezes we always enjoy. Archaeology buffs can hunt the limestone river banks for a variety of fossils or the hillside for Tonkawa or Comanche Indian arrowheads. We have many birders stop along the property trying to catch site of the many species we have seen on the farm.
Weddings The patios have been the site of several weddings and bridal photos. Wedding parties have reserved both Rocky Overlook and The Palette Pad for accommodations.

Dan and I own a continuing education company providing CE for the insurance industry. I am also the licensing director for a small insurance company. Dan has retired and keeping up with the farm is now a full-time job.
We love to travel, garden and I am an avid reader.
When my mom and dad bought this beautiful piece of property, they gave each of their 5 children the option of building a home at a location of our choosing. My husband and I were the only ones that took them up on it.
After my dad died in 1986 my husband and I began buying the farm. When my mom died in 2010, she left her home and art studio to us.
We've raised our family here and made the same offer to our two sons and our youngest took us up on it and built a beautiful home for his family in the middle of the property.
Rocky Overlook and the studio are the heart of the farm and I could not even think of selling them. I didn't want them to fall in disrepair from not being used. Both are so unique that I wanted to share them.
My sisters helped me and we totally remodeled the interiors of both and the results have been spectacular. It has been so gratifying to share mama and daddy's dream home and talents with others.
In the house, I have a notebook of the story of their searching for and finding the property and building the houses. Also, the story of mama's painting and how she became C. P. Montague and a favorite of then President L. B. Johnson. The joy and appreciation that guests have when staying there are a living tribute to mama and daddy!
