The Gregory is a full time Vacation Rental, no owners closet or pictures of someone else family. It is used exclusively for rental purposes.
This home has private access to the lake, swim or fish off the private dock. It shares a stairway with Henry's Hideway (one of our other properties) and each has it's own 14'x20' dock as well as a fish cleaning station.
This fine home sits within 150 yards of beautiful Houston County lake near Crockett, TX. This spring fed lake has cool clean water year round and is the perfect lake to fish, boat or swim in. For all the details this well maintained home has to offer visit our web site.

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.
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.
