FANTASTIC LAKE FRONT HOME WITH HUGE DECKS AND DOCK!

Crockett House Rental Photos and Description

3 beds, 2 baths Sleeps 7

Awesome view is just that, an awesome home with an awesome view. This lake front home is located on the cool spring fed waters of Houston County Lake. Texas' best kept secret is nestled in the piney woods of East Texas.

You will not feel that you are 2 hours from Houston or Dallas. This new home is clean and loaded with decks and a massive dock with two boat slips and shade cover. Swim from the dock or cast a line and land a trophy bass.

Or use the 4 complimentary kayaks and explore the quiet coves and islands (Bring Life Jackets).

We offer lighted fishing on the dock or shut the light off and amaze yourself with some of the best stargazing this side of West Texas.

Our Lake: Houston County Lake is a real gem. It is relatively unknown to most people outside of the area. It seems all our guest that have stayed have fallen in love with the quaint lake and the great swimming and fishing.

The area is reminiscent of small New England towns. Historic Churches and festivals abound.

The hills, trees and creeks make touring an enjoyable past time.

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 2007

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.

Awesome View has, well, an awesome view. It's a picturesque home with beautiful gardens and a tremendous amount of decking and dock. It is a great place to get married or simple enjoy family time. We have other homes within and easy walk that make for other possibilities regarding renting.

My family had a wonderful time during spring break! My children, grandchildren, and I truly enjoyed the relaxed comfort of the lake house...the different decks, walkways, dock were in immaculate shape, as well as the house itself. S'mores by the firepit were a special treat...great weather to enjoy the campfire! The kids played hide n seek, fished, and kayaked and even tried to swim in the too chilly lake waters...we will def. be back in the warmer summer months! Thank you so much ... Awesome View was just perfect!!

We had a great weekend at Awesome View! Wonderful house that is well maintained and clean! The kitchen is well stocked and there is lots of room on the property to spread out. We enjoyed the trees, birds and squirrels. In the hot August heat, we loved the misters on the pier to help cool us off. Mark and Brenda are fabulous hosts and very accessible. They have several other properties that are equally as nice. We will definitely be back!

We loved Awesome View. The home and view were perfect and our children loved the water and fishing. It was very quiet and relaxing. Just what we all needed for a mid-summer break. We will definitely be back.

Awesome View review

The name for this property is quite accurate; however we were a little disappointed in the swimming area. We felt there were too many stumps. Also, there was not a hammock as we saw in the pictures. The house was acceptable, but there were a few dirty dishes in the cabinets and an ashtray full of cigarette butts on the balcony. We did have a great time. The area is beautiful; we enjoyed early morning walks; my grandson had a blast fishing; we had fun making s'mores at the fire pit. We lucked out with great weather (not super hot) and cooking out on the grill and eating on the patios was perfect. The stars at night over the lake were also "an awesome view".

Owner's Response: Our deepest apologies for the ashtray and dirty dishes. We have spoken with the cleaning staff and they will pay close attention to this. It's a first and hopeful lay a last.
We do have stumps, as we advertise and try to make folks aware of. Some people have no fear, others are more nervous. Come back next year when we have the new pool in, you can enjoy sitting and looking at the lake!
I have also scoured out sites and have yet to see a picture of a hammock. Perhaps it was another property that you were looking at?

Thank you for bringing things to our attention, without feedback we can't improve!

We (two couples) stayed at Awesome View for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The house was spacious, and the decks and view were amazing. Although it was hot, we were quite comfortable sitting on the deck with the ceiling fans, enjoying the view. The kitchen was well stocked; we cooked a delicious meal on the gas grill one evening. We also ate at Moosehead Cafe and Tchoupitoulas in downtown Crockett. Mark and Brenda were great to work with. We would highly recommend Awesome View and hope to return soon!
