About the Property
Best in Area-Designer's country home with privacy. Outdoor space to die for!
The outdoor areas are truly special with views of the water, the resident sweet pony, and 'room to run' in the orchard. A huge swing by the water is as peaceful as it gets. There are three kayaks for guest's use. An easy, lazy paddle is truly special here. BBQ pits and a picnic table are at the water, too. This is a fun place to hang out.
The den is outfitted with a 42' HD flat screen with surround sound. The living room has a 32' flat screen and a fireplace.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

- Our property is a private, peaceful 8-acre gated country setting very near Austin and four miles east of Georgetown. You will have the entire property to yourselves. The pet cow and the pony graze in the pasture and the hens cluck away and provide eggs. Many guests have enjoyed our location for short and extended country road cycling training and touring. We are also well-suited for folks on motorcycles. Our biggest calling card is the relaxing, comfortable vibe that everyone remarks about when seeing the place for the first time. Words can't describe it and photos don't convey it. And be sure and check out the happenings in Georgetown proper. Festivals, markets, art events, and wine events are frequently scheduled on the award-winning Georgetown square. The Formula 1 track is twenty minutes down the road, and Austin is near, as well. Our area, and our property, is very special - we know you will agree. ...moreless

Georgetown has an award-winning downtown square that is not to be missed, but the outlying county roads to the east and north are pretty special, too. Perfect for cycling, motorcycling or just driving the car for a lazy afternoon. You'll find tiny towns with antique stores, country cafes, and really friendly people. North of Georgetown is Salado for tourist style shopping that many enjoy. And be sure and check out the City of Georgetown website to learn of all the festivals throughout the year - see First Friday, Second Saturday and the Christmas Stroll!

About the owner: Terry and I are a semi-retired couple who owned a printing company in Austin for 33 years. He's a native Minnesotan UT grad hunter/fisherman who dislikes the cold, and I'm a Dallas girl who came to Austin to UT in the 70's and stayed put. We have traveled to many spots around the world and know what it takes to feel comfortable and relaxed in a lodging setting.
Why the Owner Chose Georgetown, TX, USA:
After living for decades in Austin, raising a family, I was pulling for moving to the country near charming Georgetown. Terry agreed and I began the hunt. I immediately found this little treasure four miles east of Georgetown, and absolutely knew that this was it. And it was. The house is sited at the top of the hill overlooking the pastures and Berry Creek at the San Gabriel for a view that always gets lovely comments. We absolutely love the place and it's features, and know that others love it, too. We entertain a lot! So, we decided to share the love and rent it to others to enjoy, while we stay at another property nearby. After a year of real success with another vacation rental company, we decided to join the VRBO family. We can't wait to get more 100%, 5-star reviews for this wonderful property.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The relaxed and unmistakably peaceful vibe you get immediately as you arrive on the property was the deciding factor when we first saw this place. Huge natural stone patio - add the view of the water and the orchard and we were hooked. We feel so lucky to be here.
