About Lory Johnson

We have been visiting Rockport for 40+ years. Copano Bay caught our attention many years ago. We have spent many hours designing and furnishing the home for all to enjoy. The home was completed in early 2013 and was listed for vacation rental for the first time in early June 2013.

Lory Johnson purchased this house in 2013

Why Lory Johnson chose Rockport

Big Blue on Copano Bay sits on a large lot (and now we own the vacant lot next door!). The lot fronts Copano Bay and directly across the street is Salt Lake. We can sit on any porch of the home and have an amazing view. Fishing and kayaking are awesome. The area is peaceful and the sunsets are amazing.

The house was designed and furnished to accommodate large groups, family, couples, and family groups. We have tried to include everything needed in a vacation rental. We want you to look forward to your visit, enjoy your time there…and make plans to come back soon!

What makes this house unique

The 385' private lighted pier was completed in May 2013. It was the final touch to our bayfront home. Just after completion, a pod of dolphins hung around playing at the end of the pier. Super fun to watch!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed the home, the pier, the fishing, the kayaks, sitting on the deck, the quiet mornings, the amazing sunsets, the breeze, the birds, the dolphins, grilling, and the peacefulness. We will be back soon!

The perfect retreat

We enjoyed Big Blue so much!! The location was close to amenities but so peaceful. The house was beautifully decorated and had every detail accounted for. Lori was so sweet to us and made sure our stay was wonderful and especially memorable! We hope to come back again.

Awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the house. We loved how open the house and downstairs area are, which was great for our large group. The kitchen and bartop area as well as upstairs balcony were nice places for us to eat and hang out. We took the kayaks out and had a good time. Just be careful launching them, as there are some sharp barnacles on those rocks. We enjoyed night fishing on the long private pier. Overall it was a great experience, and everyone in our group loved the place. I recommend staying longer than 3 nights, because you won't want to leave. Now that we know how great the place is, next time we definitely will stay longer.

Second time around

  • 5 of 5

Although we encountered some bad weather we still made the best of it. We just made sure we had plenty of games to entertain kids. It helped that the house was equipped with an Xbox. Saturday we set up plenty of crab nets and ended up catching more crabs than our last trip, and still managed to catch perch for some cut bait. Some of the fish we caught were perch, gafftop, lots of cat fish, some speckled trout, one sand trout, one red fish and a couple of sting rays. The only advantage of the storm was the different variety of fish. We brought my husbands parents and although the stairs were a mission for them they really enjoyed sitting on the covered deck. I think my father in law enjoyed several naps up there. Nice breeze. Very relaxing. Thanks Lory for allowing us the use of your house.

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

For my mom's 54th birthday my brothers and sisters and I and our spouses stayed at this home for three nights. There were ten adults and 2 kids- ages 3 months to 54 years. The home met all our needs. The gated yard was a big plus for making me feel comfortable with my two year old. My family is big into fishing and even though few fish were caught, we loved spending hours fishing on the pier. The kayaks were a big hit with everyone. The only down side we experienced were the mosquitoes. They were everywhere around the house. I still give this house a five star rating because there's not much that can be done about mosquitoes. Just know that you should bring a plethora of mosquito repellant products!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a long nice birthday weekend with your Mom and family. Sometimes after a big rain, the mosquitoes show up but normally they are not a big issue. We try to keep the yard mowed as low as possible to help as well. Hope you can make it back soon to enjoy the home, fenced yard and pier. Lory
