As you leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind, you will literally feel your stress and cares melt away as you drive down the country lane to the house.
Built as my parent's dream home, the home was designed around the huge live oak trees along the top of the bluff. The home has an open floor plan. Two very large king suites have very comfortable beds and linens and sitting areas. Two bathrooms, one is very large with a large Texas hill country landscape mural above the square tub.
Large open living area goes diagonally across the house. 52" HD TV. Wood burning fireplace is enjoyed by many guests and we provide the firewood for you!
The large kitchen is fully stocked with all dishes, pots, pans, etc. as well as a toaster, waffle iron, blender, and George Foreman Grill. Dishwashing detergent, dishwashing soap, paper towels, and plenty of hand towels are also provided. Basic spices, coffee, an assortment of hot teas are in the pantry, as well as some sugar. If you plan on baking or sweetening pitchers of iced tea or Kool Aid, you will need more sugar.
One of the living areas has a queen sleeper sofa and a privacy screen is provided. There is also a 22" high queen inflatable mattress as well as a single 20" high inflatable mattress. There is plenty of room in living areas or bedrooms for them. Bedding provided.
Many guests have virtually lived on the outside patios during their stays. They have enjoyed the charcoal grill, the fire pit, and the comfortable seating and dining areas while watching the water fountain in the pond below or the listening to the cascading waterfall. Many a marshmallow has been roasted over the fire pit and many a S'mores made and enjoyed.

About the 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!
Why the 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 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 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 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. 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 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!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
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 a certain depth and smoothed, and the lines of rocks precisely straight. Pauline laid all of the rocks that show on the front of the houses and the interior rock fireplace walls. She allowed Bill to lay 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 that Pauline could tell you a story about.
