About the property

2 large king bedroom suites, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Experience stress-free country 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 ranch 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 5-tiered waterfall out back. 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 60” flat screen TV and DVD player, or stream your favorite show through Wi-Fi on your devices.

Two luxurious king suites come complete with light-filled sitting rooms and beautiful linens, while a queen sleeper sofa 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 high chair are available too.

Two baths, one with a walk-in shower, the other with a square soaking tub offers a convenient way to share space. 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 soothing cascading waterfall, or the fountain in the pond below. Fire up the charcoal grill and large smoker 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", museums 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 farm tour where the whole family can learn about local fossils, 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!

About Sheron Scurlock, Owner

Dan and I both grew up in Rockdale, a small town 45 minutes from Georgetown. I grew up in the country on a small 3 acre farm and Dan grew up in town. We were childhood sweethearts and both attended Baylor University.

I have loved furnishing and decorating the homes for our guests. I continue to do a lot of the landscaping and taking care of the general upkeep of the homes.

We love to travel, garden and I am an avid reader. Since I have retired I have more time to volunteer. Dan is always busy working on something on the farm - he will never be bored!

Sheron Scurlock, Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why Sheron Scurlock, Owner chose Georgetown

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. Dan and I jumped at the opportunity and were the only ones to take them up on it. We moved to the farm in 1971 and built our home in 1977.

After my dad died in 1986 Dan 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.

Our oldest son can't wait to retire and return to the farm!

Rocky Overlook and The Palette Pad 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, or vandalized. 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 my parent's dream home, history, and talents with others.

In each house, I have a notebook with 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 President Lyndon B. Johnson. The joy and appreciation that guests have when staying there are a living tribute to mama and daddy!

What makes this house unique

This large, open home was designed around centuries-old live oak trees. It is constructed of river rock, every rock was picked up at the river on the property by Sheron's parents, Bill and Pauline Thweatt.

Guests have marveled at how the rock was laid - all of the grout exactly the same depth and smoothed, and the lines of rocks precisely straight. Mama laid all of the rocks that show on the front of the houses and the interior rock fireplace walls. Daddy laid rock on the back and sides where they would not be as visible! The artist in her had to have the very straight, precise lines!!

There are special rocks interspersed with the river rocks and mama could tell you a story about each one. I am sorry I didn't write those stories down.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Scurlock Farms was the highlight of our trip to Georgetown. This property is a unique gem in the hill country, true to it's description and other reviews. We stayed in the lovely and spacious Rocky Overlook house which was perfect for our family: very clean, with big beds, plenty of towels, many cozy places to sit, a big stocked kitchen with picture windows and it's own fireplace, in addition to the one in the living room next to the big flat screen TV. Firewood and movies are provided, as well as unique decor with a very interesting history. The garage is entirely a kiddie play area with toys and stuff to keep them occupied indoors, great for when it's too cold (or hot) outside. The house is surrounded by huge live oak trees, and has a big back patio with fire pit, tables, and lots of seating. There are many outdoor features to choose your own adventure. Georgetown is very close, 10-15 minutes maximum. The tour of the farm was so informative and fun, and we all loved meeting the goats. And, the freshly baked muffins made by our wonderful host were a delicious bonus. A+

Welcoming property with options galore!

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Sheron and Dan, were attentive to our needs without being invasive. We loved the private tour of the property which included the San Gabriel river, visiting and feeding the goats and horses, 19 acre pecan grove, and several overlook scenic views. They maintained our firewood for the fantastic wood burning fireplace during an extremely cold couple of days.

The area on the backside of the house had several different tables with chairs for reading, bird watching or just sitting! It was a lovely experience.

The house was comfortably furnished and included beautiful artwork of the surrounding Texas hill country.

Owner's Response: It was fun giving you the tour of the farm. I am glad you enjoy the cold weather as you certainly had it during your visit! It is fun for me to share the farm's features with guests, and I always love it when they enjoy them. You will have to come back in the spring or summer and enjoy the tubing and wildflowers!

Wonderful place, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at Scurlock Farms. This house was perfect for our friends and family to visit while we had our son's wedding at "The Vineyard" in Florence. The farm is located near Georgetown and the Austin/Round Rock area. Sharon Scurlock was gracious as usual! Fresh homemade muffins were given to us on our arrival. Our 2 golden retrievers were in doggy heaven. The back yard is huge with beautiful views and a nice walk to the San Gabriel river. Would highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Home, Amazing Location a Georgetown Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to be allowed to stay in such a beautiful home. Sheron and Dan's generous hospitality was very much appreciated by us, as well as our Georgetown relatives. We really enjoyed the tour of the farm, holding the goats, feeding the horses, searching for arrow heads, birding on the San Gabriel River. We truly had a memorable visit and definitely hope to return to Scurlock Farms. Oh and Sheron's Blue Berry Muffins are the best!

Owner's Response: It was fun hosting you and I am glad your family enjoyed visiting you while you stayed in Rocky Overlook on Scurlock Farms. Tell Jeff I really appreciate him sending me the list of birds he saw at Scurlock Farms. He has seen 11 that I have not noted! We have many avid bird watchers visit and all have seen a lifer - glad he got 3! Come back a different time of the year to see different birds.

From the reservation made with our delightful hostess to the unhampered check in and check out, it was a expected and better! As a BnB owner myself this place has the process and details down to a science! I learned some things as a takeaway!

Great place! I recommend it whole heartedly!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Would love to have you return. I know you attended an event at the Convention Center in Georgetown. It is really nice to be so close to Georgetown and yet have the peace and quiet when you want to "go home" at the end of the day!
