Houston County Lake is a beautiful quiet lake nestled in the woods of East Texas. We consider it one of the areas best kept secrets and think you'll agree.

We live near by and are here to help but will not hinder.

We have many antique shops and one of a kind restaurants. Just take the time to do a little virtual exploring using our website before you arrive. We are eager to help you have a great stay and work hard to keep the home in great condition.

The Home: My wife and I decided to start our Vacation Rental business in 2007. We labored and built the Gregory from scratch.

Of course my building background in Houston was helpful in assuring a well built quality home.

All our homes are built to be full time Vacation homes. You will notice many touches you would only see in expensive custom homes. We consistently receive great and positive reviews and we work hard to keep it that way. Stay with us, you'll be glad you did. Mark & Brenda Copus

Brenda and I were attracted to East Texas because of its natural beauty. The rolling hills, creeks and heavily forested areas reminded us of our native New England.

When we first visited Houston County Lake we were hooked. We left the hustle and bustle of Spring (Houston) and settled for the small town charm and the prospects of building a Vacation Rental Business.

We built our first home (The Gregory) in 2007. Of course my business had been a life time of owning my own construction/ remodeling company in Houston. We labored on all our homes and were able to build them for much less than market pricing. This gave us the opportunity to rent well built, clean and maintained homes for much less than most any others could.

The Gregory was followed by Awesome View and eventually Creekside. All our homes are used solely for Vacation Rentals.

I was originally born in England and was young when my folks emigrated to Canada and eventually the U.S. with 4 kids in tow. You may notice the English connection with my love of gardening, something I credit my late Mother for instilling in me.

We work hard to provide a clean, comfortable and quality home at an affordable price, we think we do quite well at providing just that! We look forward to providing the same for you, your family and friends.

As always, help is a phone call away.

Mark And Brenda Copus purchased this house in 2009

As mentioned, our love of the area stemmed from its natural beauty and the fantastic spring fed lake Crockett had to offer.

We felt the location between Houston and Dallas would afford many the opportunity of a more central meeting area that seemed to be lacking elsewhere. We also felt the proximity and short drive would attract people for short getaways as well as loner family vacations.

We attract motorcyclist that want to enjoy the twisty country roads with nice elevation changes as well as dirt bikers seeking of road experiences.

We attract, birders, hikers, fisherman, and all sorts of people….perhaps most importantly, we attract families. As parents of 5 children we most enjoy hearing of families “re-bonding” and leaving with big smiles and tales of monster fish being caught.

It’s these moments that make the job of providing homes for vacationing families so much fun.

Thank you for the wonderful accommodations. It was such a peaceful & relaxing weekend away. We love your house and can tell you put a lot of time & love into building and decorating it. The hot tub, jacuzzi & decks were great. Everything was comfortable& felt just like home but better. I hope we can return this summer to enjoy the other home and bring our daughter. Thanks again

QUIET, LOVELY RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
There is a swing on the porch and shade from numerous trees. We walked the area and all their properties are nicely landscaped. It is probably striking in November with colorful fall foliage. Everything was clean and looked like new, and the kitchen well stocked for cooking. We are already planning a return visit with extended family to stay in one of their larger properties.

We stayed at the Gregory over the weekend and had an amazing time. Everything was delightful and peaceful. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone that would like to just go away and get out of the city. Thank you for providing us a very nice place to stay. Everything was amazing!

FAMILY FUN!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at the Gregory. The house was spacious & very comfortable. The fire pit was wonderful and the horseshoes & basketball entertaining. The kids loved the hot tub, especially since the weather was too chilly to swim in the lake. The docks are beautiful & allowed for easy access to the canoe. Our favorite experience was seeing the deer in the evening. We would definitely go back.

BEAUTIFUL ACCOMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed spending the weekend with friends at this lovely home! We live in Dallas and our friends live in Houston, so it was a good place to meet in the middle. We experienced the Peanut Festival, where we managed to buy many things, from furniture to candles to candle and more!

Our only wish was rain gutters on the front of the house! It rained all day Saturday, sometimes very hard, and it was impossible to run from the car to the front door without a blast of cold hard rain rolling off the roof on top of your head!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. We have thought about guttering on the Gregory, unfortunately....or fortunately, we have so many trees the leaves would be a constant problem. We may try a deflector over the front porch to divert water to the side, making entry a little drier, Thanks for the heads up!
