“Very Spacious and Conveniently Located”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

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 all shaded by a canopy of trees. Once outside, you can sit and enjoy the cardinals, hummingbirds and butterflies who visit often. Indoors, the house is very spacious and nicely appointed. I found a nook behind the kitchen to paint, while the kids slept in and my husband sat out on the patio reading. The description of the sleeping arrangements was a little difficult to understand, but there are two lovely bedrooms with a king size bed in each. There is a sofa bed which closes off nicely with a screen, but more suitable to a couple of youths. There is a blow up mattress for which there is plenty of room. Located very close to Georgetown which is a lovely place for antiquing and shopping and is truly a Town Square! Live music is abound on weekends. Don't miss the Blue Hole, Inner Space Caverns, the Outlet Mall, Farmers Market, Monument Café and Dos Salsas! Fishing was great on the San Gabriel, which borders the property. The water was high enough for a good float, but rather warm with the exception of a cloudy day. On this day, the temperature was fabulous! I would love to come back in the late fall or early spring so that we could use the beautiful fireplaces which are made of the same stone as the entire house!

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 lot of fish on the one mile of river frontage along Scurlock Farms, and enjoying hiking about the 172 acres. Come again in November and see the fall color and enjoy the cooler temperatures, fireplace and fire pit!

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!
