About Jon and Marion Whittemore
My name is Jon Whittemore. My wife and I grew up in Forney, TX, just 30 east of Dallas. I'm a retired school superintendent and my wife, Marion, is a retired teacher and school librarian. We have two sons, Joseph, age 26, and Ben, age 16. Our family is active in Wellspring United Methodist Church here in Georgetown. Ben attends Georgetown High School, where he plays soccer and runs cross country and Joseph works at Dept of Public Safety in Austin. Three years ago, our family retired to Georgetown because of its beautiful geography, its friendly and helpful people, and its excellent schools. It's the best move we ever made.
Jon and Marion Whittemore purchased this House in 2016
Why Jon and Marion Whittemore chose Georgetown
We chose this property as a rental vacation home not only because of all that Georgetown has to offer with its beautiful outdoors and being the home of Southwestern University, but also for of its proximity to Austin and Round Rock. Whether you're visiting the area for a family reunion, a sporting event at UT, or one of the area's many festivals, you cannot beat staying in our rental home in Georgetown.
What makes this House unique
Our rental home is just a short 3 block walk from the historic Georgetown square, the amazing public library, Palace Theater, Southwestern Univ., many shops and restaurants, Blue Hole lagoon, and 9 miles of trails through San Gabriel Park. And it's only minutes away from I-35. You won't find a vacation rental home in Georgetown more centrally located to everything you need. Why spend 3x the money to stay in Austin, when you can spend a fraction of the cost and spend time with us in Georgetown?

So nice to have living room and kitchen. Very clean. Bed in 2nd bedroom too hard for my taste, but I slept well anyway.
We're very happy that you and your sister enjoyed your stay in our vacation rental in Georgetown. Thanks again for staying with us and please come see us again. God bless you!

Also located on the square is an office of the Chamber where you can gather local information or even….. check out a bicycle!
