Pats Place sleeps 19, Henry's Hideaway is adjacent to Pats HomeAway # 3568535 and can sleep 10 (Henry's Hideaway rents for additional $300 per night). There are two additional homes (The Gregory and Awesome View sleeping an additional 14) in easy walking distance for larger groups. They can be rented for an additional cost as well.
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 bedroom and a gameroom/bedroom. The home also has 4 full baths. The home has no carpet and is always clean and as allergy free as possible. We have 4 additional homes (3 in easy walking distance) for larger groups. Henrys Hideaway sets directly across the street from Pats.
Decks are to 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.
If you have a larger group we have 4 additional homes, 3 within easy walking distance. 2014 brings the pool for use by the guests from our 5 houses. check out our site at Vacation Country Rentals.
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.
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.
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.
