Georgetown, Texas
Deep in the heart of Texas, down a country lane, this home was designed around gorgeous hundreds of year old live oak trees by famed TX landscape artist C. P. Montague. It is constructed of river rock, picked up at the river on the property by the artist and her husband, also hand-laid by them. There are two interior rock fireplace walls with working fireplaces, firewood provided. The home is about 2,400 sq. ft. with large open living areas and two large, master bedroom suites. One has a beautiful Texas river landscape mural painted above the square tub by the artist. The second has a very large walk-in shower. The main living area has a large screen HDTV. You won't mind being in the fully furnished kitchen as you enjoy the spectacular view out the wall of windows above the sink, overlooking the upper patio and the lower terra... Read more

Our daughter and friends stayed and had a fabulous time! They all loved it! Everything was perfect and clean down to every last detail. It is a wonderful place with lots to do and see while relaxing. Everything is there to make you feel at home. It is a jewel and I would highly recommend a stay!

Management response:

I am glad Rocky Overlook worked so well for Katie's wedding celebration. The huge live oak trees made the perfect canopy for their catered dinner and dancing. I understand they all went down to play in the river several times the next day between playing horseshoes and eating more bar-b-q under the trees!

Oddly located near a neighborhood, yet far enough away and once inside you feel quite secluded as the area of the house which is most used is enclosed by trees, flowers and lush underbrush and plantings. The Great Room and Kitchen give you an almost panoramic view of the patio and terraces with fountains, private seating areas and group areas...

Management response:

Georgetown is becoming a destination location. We have so many good restaurants around and just off the "Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas", live music can be found in one of the restaurants almost every night of the week, and the Blue Hole lagoon just off the square is a favorite of local and guests. Guests are still catching a...

Management response:

Watching a fire in the fireplace or fire pit can be so calming and mesmerizing. We would love to have you stay with us again now that the weather has finally begun to cool off. The fall colors will be at their peak in about 3 weeks and we would love to welcome you back to The Palette Pad!

About the neighborhood
Rocky Overlook is in the middle of Scurlock Farms which is a 10 minute drive from Georgetown and only 30 minutes from Austin. We are on the edge of the Texas Hillcountry and the farm has a bluff and ravines that run through it, as well as 1+ mile of river frontage. The farm is beautiful year round as we are blessed to have many live oak trees that are hundreds of years old and green year round. You are free to roam and hike about the farm and river. Circular drive in front of the house for parking.

Rural setting - fish, hike, search for arrowheads on the farm
