Pottsboro House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Located at the end of a secluded, paved country road with ample room to turn a boat trailer around and park. All of the owner's personal furnishings are intact so no need to pack anything except personal items, clothing, toys and food. Upon entering you will be pleased with a 25'high open ceiling great room with a river rock wood burning fireplace as the central focal point. Access to the upper and lower decks from the great room or surrounding deck walkways. A small sit down 'bar' separates the full kitchen from the dining area. Down the hall from the kitchen / great room area is a private bedroom with two single beds, closet, ceiling fan and across the hall a full bathroom with shower and tub. Further down the hall at the back entrance is a fully equipped laundry room with washer and dryer and shelves for storage. Outside the back door a wood deck walkway surrounds the house with access to a lockable large storage shed (only one on Lake Texoma with a deck, view of the lake and skylights!) This is suitable for skis, life jackets, fishing equipment etc. and has a work bench with vise for those unexpected repairs. A portable stainless 'fish cleaning sink' is available. The lofted master suite is accessed by a stairway with a beautiful original solid brass railing. The master has a commanding view of the lake by merely lifting your head off the pillow. The two walk in closets are lighted with ample room for all your travel items. Recessed dimmable flood lights abound throughout this home making it as cozy or crazy as you like.

This property is very secluded.

About The Owner

We have been coming to Lake Texoma for a number of years as 'weekenders'. Now that we are semi-retired, we decided to move to the area full time. We enjoy golf, fishing and a plethora of friends. Being within an hour or so of DFW we can travel yet live the country life here.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

Why The Owner chose Lake Texoma

This 2-story modified A frame is approximately 1200 square feet with plenty of parking space and privacy. You can enjoy the lake all day and come back to refresh and relax in air conditioned comfort. In the winter months, you can enjoy a relaxing weekend with a wood burning fireplace and take in all of the surrounding activities. You can feel free to bring your pets. You will love the lake country life style and the world class fishing and boating. We bulit our retirement house just down the street so our original beautiful lake house is available to you. 'Come play, come stay' is the motto of Pottsboro.

What makes this house unique

This property is a year-round vacation spot, within walking distance of the lake. We are 5 minutes from Tanglewood Resort and some of the best dining in Texas. There are several challenging golf courses very close by and Highport Marina is a 5 minute drive as well. The property is located right in the middle of Lake Texoma and right in the middle of the islands. Our neighborhood deep water launch only costs $5.00 per day and has ample parking for cars and trailers with a launch area dock to load and unload passengers. It is truly one of the most convenient and desired rentals available.

Beautiful home, stunning location, wonderful homeowners

  • 5 of 5

When we first arrived on the property we were all stunned at how beautiful it was. Lush greenery, and a magnificent home awaited us for the weekend. More than enough space for our two cars to make a turn around at the end of that street! We met Bruce and Ann over the weekend, and both are very sweet, and lovely individuals.

When we entered the home, we were greeted with beautiful vaulted ceilings, lovely furnishings, and overall a very inviting home. All rooms, including the breathtaking loft, were fully furnished, and very comfortable. The two decks that the home had were alluring, and you could see the lake from the top deck.

There were five of us, also including my miniature Australian shepherd, and there was enough space for us all. Pet rules were more than acceptable, and Bruce even made the effort to befriend Gemini, and definitely won her stomach and need to play with tennis balls over! (Thank you so much again!) I felt so much better about bringing her along for her first lake trip.

The home is minutes away from a small marina, and a small drive from many parks on the lake. A Walmart isn't too far if you forget last minute things off US-75.

Overall, we would love to come back! Bruce and Ann have such a marvelous home, and we all concur when I say we appreciate such an alluring home away from it all. We got to relax, fish, and enjoy two birthdays this weekend, and this will forever be a wonderful memory for us.

Very secluded at the end of a cul de sac.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this secluded private residence. Very quiet evenings and a nice deck to read a book or nap on. House has everything we needed and comfortable beds and baths. Will definitely consider a return especially if we can time the best Striped Bass fishing!

Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place! My wife and I were looking for a relaxing place to getaway for the weekend and this was perfect. Wooded lot with views of the lake from the two balconies and from inside the house. The owners were very nice and accommodating. We look forward to returning!

beautiful and peaceful home

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely amazing! We loved our stay everything was easy to find and clean. The owners were so sweet even though I didn't get to meet them personally. We had a late arrival and they even offered to let us stay later since we arrived so late! We will definitely be back and soon. Thank you both for the wonderful and peaceful stay
