About the property

1 BR/1 BA cottage overlooking Georgetown behind the Jesse Cooper Historic Home

The Jesse Cooper cottage sits just behind the Historical Jesse Cooper House built in 1911. We are 2 1/2 miles from Georgetown sitting atop the hill on Wilbarger Point.The address of the cottage is 259 Wilbarger Point. You can see Georgetown, as well as Southwestern University from our hilltop. The cottage has one bedroom and one bath. It is furnished and decorated to make you feel at home and to give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy the view. The kitchen is fully equipped with all needed appliances. The cottage has a full size washer and dryer, direct tv, flat screen tv, dvd blue ray player and is centrally heated and air conditioned. We are a pet friendly property. We have pets and are glad to allow you to bring your pet, with a special agreement with us. We love to garden, so you will be able to experience gardening (and possibly some fresh veggies), while you are here. We are 1/2 mile west of I-30 and 3 miles east of I-35. You have easy access to Georgetown, Austin, Round Rock, and the Hill Country. We are willing to have a special dessert waiting for you in the cottage upon your arrival by special request. We live on-site, so are always happy to help with locations of places you would like to visit. We have tried to make the cottage a place that we would enjoy staying in.

About Susan or Jimmy Snow

Jimmy and I moved to Wilbarger Point, after searching for the perfect 'old house'. We have spent hours and hours giving the property the tender loving care it needed to bring it back to life. Susan is a retired elementary school teacher and Jimmy recently retired, after 41 years with the electric company. Our priorities are Faith, Family, and Friends. We love spending time with our family/ grand-kids, gardening, hunting, fishing, sewing, quilting, smocking, cooking, and canning. Our two children, Corrie and Josh, both graduated from Texas A & M. Their spouses also graduated from Texas A & M. We love living in Georgetown and are thrilled with the opportunity to share our place with others.

Susan or Jimmy Snow purchased this chateau / country house in 1995

Why Susan or Jimmy Snow chose Georgetown

We both have always loved old houses and old things. When we moved to Georgetown, the historical properties always charmed us. We fell in love with San Gabriel park and spent many hours there when our kids were younger. When we learned of the Jesse Cooper House, we spent several years trying to make it ours. When the timing was right, it happened and we have been blessed to live here.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

From the hill, we have a wonderful view of the sunsets and sunrises. There is always a breeze. You get the feel of being out in the country, but also the luxury of being close to town.

Cute & comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay at the Jesse Cooper cottage. It is easy to get to, but feels like you're out in the country. With three dogs, this was hands down superior to staying at a hotel. The fenced yard was small, but adequate. The back door locks, but can be opened without unlocking. I didn't feel unsafe though, due to the location. If you plan to stay for a long time, be ready to wash dishes, as there isn't a dishwasher.

Owner's Response: Glad to know about the back door. Didn’t realize it wasn’t locking. We always keep paper plates Inn the cottage for your convenience.

Great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We spent two nights here in January 2018 and it suited our needs perfectly. An updated, well kept, well stocked and clean one bedroom with all the amenities you would ever need. Susan even went above and beyond to honor an out of the ordinary request as well as having ice water in a bowl for our pup when we arrived.

The location is great with easy access to both 130 and I-35 so that you can quick get to Roundrock, Austin, Leander and Liberty Hill. It is very close to downtown Georgetown, where there are some excellent local restaurants and one really awesome coffee shop.

We stayed there in preparation for a move to the area so for us we may not have a need to return, but we will definitely recommend it to friends coming to the area. A really great value.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our cottage and for your kind words! We didn’t get a chance to meet you but since you will soon live here, maybe we can meet. Blessings on your new home in our wonderful city of Georgetown!

Relaxing country get away

It was so nice to have a place to call "home" while we were visiting the Georgetown area. Susan and Jimmy are terrific hosts.

Good for a quick few days stay and perfect for companion animals

  • 4 of 5

First off the hospitality was great! We were greeted with homemade caramel popcorn that was delicious and there were many brochures left for us to view on activities in the area. The bed was comfortable and a good size. The kitchen had everything we needed for making our own meals with plenty of coffee and fridge space. There was really only one downside for us and that was having to clean some heavy mold off of the shower head. Honestly, that's the only criticism we had on the place. It's really the perfect spot to have your pet and stay for a few days.

Owner's Response: We're glad that you enjoyed your stay in Texas and hope that you were able to find just the right area to make your home. So sorry about the shower head. We have a lot of lime in our water and I guess it built up without my noticing it.

Nice and quiet getaway

The cottage was just perfect for my dogs and I. They also had a nicely fenced backyard for my dogs. We had a great stay and would likely be back. Thank you!

Clean and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful little cottage! The house was clean and had all the comforts of home! It's in the perfect location for us - close to Round Rock and Austin but tucked away up a little dirt road in a quiet section of Georgetown! The owners were very attentive to our needs and even sent over a repair man to look at the A/C that just needed to be reset! We definitely recommend this charming home and look forward to staying when we come to TX again!

Jimmy & Susan, as VRBO owners ourselves, we would love to have you stay with us anytime you are traveling to Yellowstone or the Grand Teton National Park area! We would LOVE to reciprocate your hospitality! We're listing # 1115743

The city of Georgetown has much to offer. The square has live entertainment, restaurants, shopping, and wineries. The San Gabriel Park is amazing. We think that Georgetown has the best Mexican food in the area, and that is at Dos Salsa (you will probably see us there.) We are close to great shopping at the outlet mall in Round rock. The hill country isn't far, and, of course, Austin is full of things to do.
