About Pam, Owner / Property Manager

Owners Pam and Al Bartschmid have been residents of Georgetown since 1983. They fell in love with the historic charm and hometown appeal and decided to raise their family and someday retire there. “We wouldn’t want to live anywhere else.”, opines Pam. “Georgetown has everything we need and if we want more, Austin is a short 30 miles south.”

Pam, Owner / Property Manager purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Pam, Owner / Property Manager chose Georgetown

We chose these properties because there are 3 cottages all right next to each other. What a great way to spend a weekend or a few months.

What makes this cottage unique

The cottages are located in the historic area of Georgetown. It is a short stroll to the town square (voted the most beautiful town square in Texas) and an equally brief walk to Southwestern University, about 6 short blocks.

Great for a weekend getaway or family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

We got married at a venue in town and our families stayed at these lovely cottages. These cottages were close to the venue and everything else in the square! Members of our party are GPS-challenged and it was easy to find, very clean, and adorable! Pam was such a joy to work with! She was very accommodating in the months leading up to the wedding weekend. Our families loved that they had a "home away from home" experience, especially since we had several children and grandparents in our party. All in all, we couldn't be happier with our choice, we highly recommend these cottages!

Perfect for a Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had our staff retreat here and we were so incredibly blessed because it is exactly the place that we needed. The open concept was the perfect set-up to hold our meetings. The place is impeccably clean and the location is so ideal. The cottage is located in the heart of Georgetown and we were walking distance to restaurants, shops and all the little quaint historical "must see" places that Georgetown has to offer. Everything about this place is worth coming back to. Thank you to the owners who were the perfect hosts for us. We highly recommend it!

Like an old friend

  • 5 of 5

Second stay at Payton. Still lovely. One request: we all are bar soap users rather than body wash. Please consider this addition. Knives need sharpening. House is comfortable and we love the location. Looking forward to returning next year.

Loved the Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful space and an excellent Host - we thoroughly enjoyed staying in the Payton, and it was the perfect fit for our small group. We loved the location during our Georgetown visit, and the cottage was very comfortable.

Clean, convenient, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and spacious enough for 6 people and they were accommodating when I asked to check-in early only a day or so before our stay. There was a nice backyard for having a fire. They had a lot of nice little touches like leaving us wine, delicious cookies, and guides for what there is to do in the area. The cottage was walking distance to the square where we spent a lot of time. We will definitely stay there again if we come back to town!

Perfect spot in Georgetown!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in multiple VRBO, HomeAway and Airbnb rentals - some with good results, some not so much. This was easily one of our best experiences! Pam and Tracey were responsive, flexible and knew what they were doing. The house was spotless and with great attention to detail. The beds were super comfortable! The front and back yards are beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and safe and being in Georgetown is always a treat. We highly recommend the Payton Cottage but I suspect all of Pam's homes would be equally as charming. We look forward to next visit!
