Description from owner

Description

Deep in the heart of Texas, down a country lane, this home was designed around gorgeous hundreds of year old live oak trees by famed TX landscape artist C. P. Montague. It is constructed of river rock, picked up at the river on the property by the artist and her husband, also hand-laid by them. There are two interior rock fireplace walls with working fireplaces, firewood provided. The home is about 2,400 sq. ft. with large open living areas and two large, master bedroom suites. One has a beautiful Texas river landscape mural painted above the square tub by the artist. The second has a very large walk-in shower. The main living area has a large screen HDTV. You won't mind being in the fully furnished kitchen as you enjoy the spectacular view out the wall of windows above the sink, overlooking the upper patio and the lower terraces and patio, fish pond and 5-tiered water fall, then on down the bluff to the woods. Artist's painting area has a wall of 7' windows with game table.

Farm Activities: Within walking distance to the San Gabriel River, Rocky Hollow is on a working 112 acre farm and has 1/2 mile river frontage. See horses and goats across the drive and feel your stress melt away as you inhale the freshly mowed hay from the pasture. 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. Pick up pecans in the 19 acre orchard if you'd like in the fall. 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. Binoculars are provided.

Maybe you'd prefer to have a campfire and weenie roast on the banks of the river? Take the picnic basket and cooler that are provided and go for a picnic along the river. Practice your casting in the San Gabriel or sit on the bank and watch the catfish and bass swim by. Make yourselves at home while you are in our care. A recent guest caught several 15" wide-mouth bass and many blue gills and said "there are hundreds of blue gill".

Nearby Activities and Events: Rocky offers pastoral tranquility and allows you to enjoy all that Austin has to offer just 30 minutes away. The Circuit of the Americas F1 track is only minutes away via the 80mph 130 tollraod. Go in to Austin to enjoy a UT game, SXSW music festival, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, 6th Street and its live music scene, or the Bob Bullock TX Museum where you can experience a true taste of Texas culture.

Georgetown has its own art and music festivals, such as Festival of the Arts, Red Poppy Festival (April), Downtown Christmas Stroll (December), biergarten, and the First Saturday on the Square days - vendors set up all around the square with their crafts, plants and homemade goodies. You may choose to swim in the scenic Blue Hole just off the downtown square, explore the InnerSpace Caverns, visit the many wineries in the area, or hike or bike the miles of trails around town or Lake Georgetown.

Numerous excellent camping, hiking, fishing and water related activities can be found at several parks located around Lake Georgetown. Many golf courses are in the area. Sun City is 15 miles away.

With several good restaurants in nearby downtown Georgetown, groceries are optional. Brew up the provided coffee, tea or hot chocolate in the morning and enjoy the fresh homemade muffins and fresh fruit provided for you. Your choice of muffins include Banana Nut (with pecans from our orchard), Chocolate Chip, Blueberry or Almond-Poppy Seed. Eat in at the dining table or enjoy your meal outdoors on one of the patios or terraces overlooking the bluff. The humming birds and various birds will enjoy their meals along with you at their feeders, providing lots of free entertainment!.

Regardless of what you choose to do each day, come home to Rocky Hollow. Enjoy a glass of wine and unwind as you sit with your loved one in front of the fireplace or on one of the patios and enjoy the spectacular sunsets.

Getting around

You will need a car to get around as Scurlock Farms is a 10 minute drive to Georgetown. You can also use Uber or Lyft, but most guests enjoy having their own vehicle.

Interaction with guest

I love meeting and visiting with guests, but let the guests set the tone/time. The evening of your arrival I will bring down a batch of freshly bakes from-scratch muffins of your choice. You may choose from Banana (with or without pecans), Blueberry, Chocolate Chip (with or without pecans), or Snickerdoodle. They are great for breakfast! Hint: warm them in the microwave 10 - 15 seconds to bring all the flavors out. I love giving free tours of the farm in a Polaris. I can show you the river, hiking areas, farm animals and give you a general lay of the land for when you want to trek about on your own. Just let me know if/when you would like a tour.

Response from the owner I am glad Rocky Overlook worked so well for Katie's wedding celebration. The huge live oak trees made the perfect canopy for their catered dinner and dancing. I understand they all went down to play in the river several times the next day between playing horseshoes and eating more bar-b-q under the trees!

Response from the owner Georgetown is becoming a destination location. We have so many good restaurants around and just off the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas", live music can be found in one of the restaurants almost every night of the week, and the Blue Hole lagoon just off the square is a favorite of local and guests. Guests are still catching a lot of fish on the one mile of river frontage along Scurlock Farms, and enjoying hiking about the 172 acres. Come again in November and see the fall color and enjoy the cooler temperatures, fireplace and fire pit!

Response from the owner Watching a fire in the fireplace or fire pit can be so calming and mesmerizing. We would love to have you stay with us again now that the weather has finally begun to cool off. The fall colors will be at their peak in about 3 weeks and we would love to welcome you back to The Palette Pad!
