Best in Area-Designer's country home with privacy. Outdoor space to die for!
This is a very special gated, private 8 acre property that gets only great rental reviews. The pics can't capture how special it is. Our home is sited on a hill overlooking the pasture, the pecan orchard, with a view of tree-lined Berry Creek. Three bedrooms and a large private den with a Crate and Barrel queen sleeper sofa can sleep up to 8 (added fee for guests 7 and 8 - infants free - see rates button). Master bedroom has a queen, one guest room has twin beds, and the other guest room has a double. Sheets are line dried for best fragrance and freshness! There are two dining areas, kitchen bar seating, two living areas and a real cook's kitchen. A huge master bath adjoins the master bedroom and the den, and a 3 piece bath serves the two guest rooms.
The outdoor areas are outstanding with views of the water, 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 a real treat. BBQ pits and a picnic table are at the water, too. This is a fun place to hang out.
Up at the house is a giant natural stone patio with a Santa Maria styled grill, outdoor fireplace and dining space for ten. A huge fire pit is also there for keeping warm in the winter. The back porch has a daybed and ceiling fans for lazy dozing or reading, and the backyard has a beautiful seating area for enjoying coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. The massive front yard is great for bocce or croquet.
The large den is outfitted with a 42" HD flat screen.
The cozy living room has a 32' flat screen and a fireplace.

About Pattie Meyers
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.
Pattie Meyers purchased this Chateau / Country House in 1996
Why Pattie Meyers chose Weir
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.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
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.

Wonderful stay for our family - secluded yet close to highways
Our family of 6 had a fantastic stay at Redbird Farm. We thoroughly enjoyed the property - especially the outdoor table and grill, fountain and all the bird visitors. The setting was just enough outside of town to feel secluded and private, yet close enough to run into town for groceries or gas. The house was very clean and comfortable and Pattie was super quick to respond to any needs and questions that we had. We ventured out to Waco, Georgetown, Austin, San Antonio and more from this house. We all enjoyed the chickens and the fresh eggs during our stay. Our favorite hangout was on the back patio in the morning while we enjoyed coffee.
Perfect weekend getaway!
Pattie was such a gracious host! She made sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The house was beautifully decorated and so comfortable for a girls weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back next year!
Thank you Pattie!
Relaxing and comfortable
The house was warm and inviting and the outside seating areas were so relaxing. We used the kayaks on the creek and river-they were great.
This was an outdoorsy, fun family of three generations who paddled and fished, and enjoyed kicking back for a week. Nice people!
Perfect Retreat Location
Oh how we have enjoyed our visit to your lovely home. At every turn, inside and outside, we were delighted with your thoughtful little touches and were continuously amazed at your decorating taste and skill. We all are leaving feeling refreshed. Photos can not capture the beauty of this location. The daily fresh eggs were a special treat.
Such nice compliments - especially "leaving feeling refreshed", as this is our goal. A getaway should be a place for relaxation and a pleasing visual experience. So happy that was the takeaway for your group. Hope to see you again!
Perfect place for our Christmas family gathering!
Perfect place for our Christmas family gathering! The view off the back of the house was amazing and the weather was cool and crisp. We were able to walk about and explore the property, see the chickens and enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. Once it got dark we had beautiful starry nights and perfect weather for a fire outdoors. The home had plenty of room for us to gather to play games and open Christmas gifts together but, still a place for each one of us to slip away to a place by ourselves and relax and unwind. It was a great location for us to meet in the Central Texas area to enjoy each other‘s company and the beautiful Texas Hill country. Thank you Patti for sharing your very special home!
This was a great family who came to have fun and be together for the holidays. A pleasure to meet and host, they left the place in tip-top condition! Hope to see them again.
Beautiful home and property!
Perfection! It met all of our needs. Welcoming and comfortable!
Great guests who came with their dogs for a local softball tournament, then they fished, cooked, gathered eggs, and had a memorable time. Happy to have met them, for sure!
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!
