Have you ever seen a great horned owl up close and personal? The Great Horned Owl is largely nocturnal so they can be difficult to spot. Come ...
We were looking for a getaway that wasn't a two to three hour trip away from Round Rock. We found Scurlock Farms and decided to book our trip through Air BnB. Sheron called us that day and let us know that they had their own website where we could have booked for a lot cheaper. I canceled and booked directly through her! She saved us almost $100 (that's true customer service). We arrived at the beautiful Palette Pad, and made ourselves at home. It was very cozy and we lit a fire in the fireplace to enjoy the ambiance as we read up on the history of the house. Sheron called and came down to bring us some necessities (coffee and matches) , she gave us a rundown of the entire place and gave us tips for finding arrowheads (which we actually found one!). The San Gabriel is a short walk through the pecan orchard and it was incredibly peaceful to sit and watch the river go by. Scurlock Farms also has a small roadside stand where the sell delectable chocolate covered pecans, jams and salsas. They had run out of fresh eggs, but Sheron said she would grab what the chickens had laid and brought them by the Palette Pad. I can't not say enough about the wonderful hospitality of the Scurlock's and how beautiful the farm is just 30 min outside of town. I would absolutely stay here again and plan on it in the near future!
