Pats Place is on a 1300 acre spring fed lake outside of Crockett Texas. The house is on the side of a hill and sets over 20' off the ground and 50+ foot above the water which is less than 100 feet from the lake side of the home.
The home is new in 2013 and offers 5 bedrooms and a game-room/bedroom. The home also has 4 full baths.
The large kitchen is perfect for your group. We even have a local caterer available for nights you don't want to cook! Ask for more information.
The home has no carpet and is always clean and as allergy free as possible.
Decks are too numerous to list. Find your 'me' spot and enjoy the near constant tropical like breeze. The dock has a covered area as well as a fish cleaning station and two boat slips.
The home has a fire-pit for those chilly evenings or for cooking the family favorite smores!
The cantilevered deck on the side of 'the cliff' is an incredible spot to enjoy the breeze and wildlife.
Whether you're with a large or small group, you'll love Pats Place.
Pats Place is a fantastic home in a magical setting. It is a very unique home and has lots of steps, decks, docks and a phenomenal array of outdoor lights.
Brenda and I grew up in Massachusetts and moved to Texas back in 1978. We lived in Spring outside of Houston where we raised about half of our 5 kids. When Spring became Houston I couldn't take the urban sprawl and wanted to pull the plug.
We decided on Houston County Lake outside of Crockett because of the terrain and plentiful trees and wildlife.
It reminded us very much of New England.
We raised the last of our kids and they attended a small school in Latexo, a town of 200 or so just east of the lake.
The last child is now going through college and we have been fortunate to see the first 4 graduate U.T. Austin...with the 5th to follow.
As corny as it may sound, a very large part of the reason we pursued the vacation rental business is the enjoyment we get from watching and hearing about families re-bonding and kids catching their first or biggest fish.
It's a very rewarding business.
Mark And Brenda Copus purchased this house in 2013
Well, we bought the land and my background as a builder lets me see possibilities others don't. When we bought this property I had a vision of what it could be.
We constantly heard people tell us this land couldn't be built on. Well, I knew better and felt I could use the terrain to make this a one in a million unique home.
In fact, the drawings I made at the very beginning are almost identical to the end product.
We think you'll fall in love with Pats Place, just as we have.
Not one of our properties are lived in. They are all for Vacation Rental purposes only. This allows us to make the home for the vacationer, not the tenant. You'll notice our closets are smaller than many homes allowing more living space rather than unneeded space. our homes are designed to be very comfortable inside and the outdoor living is second to none.
I feel another strong area is the fact I am a builder. We still do projects in Houston, Crockett and Dallas, I keep a crew. When the construction is slow I shift the men over to help maintain the properties. This allows us to 'not only' maintain the properties but we actually improve them over time.
Went for spring break. Had a wonderful time with the family fishing, kayaking and making smores by the fire pit at night. The beds were clean and comfortable, the kitchen was well provisioned and the wifi was suitable for streaming Amazon or Netflix movies at night. The lake was quiet and lots of wildlife around to entertain us during the day. The marina was within walking distance and had some basic supplies and bait for sale, but they were out of bait when we were there. When you go, follow the signs that say "Rental Houses" for the last few turns, not your GPS. Definitely someplace we will return to in the future!
This home was a delightful place for our family (with our kids and their spouses and our grandkids) to gather for a wonderful week together. It was a beautiful and well furnished home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals--and nice new appliances. The decks were amazing, and we so enjoyed eating out on the main porch overlooking the lake. We loved having the kayaks available for the kids (and grown-ups) to be able to wander around the lake. We also appreciated having good wi-fi connections.
The parking was ample. The front porch was large. Once opening the door I was amazed at the space. Our group of 13 would have more than enough room. Everything was immaculate. The decor was perfect and inviting. A giant island with tons of seating was smack in the middle. This quickly became the center of our party. Every appliance or extra you could want was in the cabinets and drawers, griddle, waffle maker, etc. made cooking super easy. All the bedrooms had a tv and dresser, extra blankets, and super comfy beds. The living room has large sofas and a couple stuffed rockers. Perfect for reading. The deck is large...you really can't describe it....you could have 5 different parties on each little sitting area. Very impressive. Off the living room is some stairs. Go on down and it's a game room, perfect for the kids to unwind and give the adults some space. Lots of bean bags downstairs for people to crash on and watch movies. The owners are really nice and easy to talk to. They provided lots of info about the area and things to do. We enjoyed our stay. Got to see some amazing fireworks on the lake, definitely coming back in the summer. Can't wait to go swimming!
The house is beautiful, spacious, and the decking is amazing. We were able to spend quality time with family and friends in a quiet and beautiful setting. We really enjoyed the outside fire pit. Kayaking on the lake and fishing off the deck was an added bonus. We will be back and will tell all our friends about this gorgeous home. Mark & Brenda were extremely nice and very accomodating.
The house was nice with Owesome facilities. Mark and Brenda was owesome, they really take care of this place.
The only drawback was the GPS didn't take us to the correct location
Crockett sets in the piney woods of East Texas. The area is home to the Davy Crockett National Forest and the Texas State Railroad.
The area is home to multiple festivals as well as a 1st class (well for a small town) fine arts center.
Crockett is home to Texas' oldest fiddlers festival and sports a rodeo that George Strait has attended.
The antique and small one of a kind shops in the area will keep the shoppers occupied.
Take the time to tour town and visit the museums, libraries and our classic movie theater 'The Ritz'. It's almost like stepping back in time.
