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 high above the lake, in the tree canopy. Whats very unique is how close the home is to the lake. It has a truly remarkable view and feel to it.
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, kayak house and a boat slip.
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.
My wife has suggested I need to visit with deckaholics anonymous. She may be right?
The interior of Pats is often overlooked due to the beauty of the outdoor setting. The homes interior is fresh and open. As a builder I built this home with Vacation Rental in mind. The two Master Bedrooms have their own exits on to the porch where an evening beverage or a cup of coffee can be enjoyed.
The large communal area flows and is the perfect place for any family event. The island seems to be a popular meeting spot!
The bunk room has a full lower with a twin upper. As is the case with all our bedrooms it has a 32" flat screen T.V. and cable. The lower gamer/bedroom has Netflix as well as the upper living area. Of course we offer wireless broadband internet as well as a landline with free unlimited calling in the continental U.S.
The remaining bedrooms are a queen size beds with ample space.
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, plentiful trees and wildlife.
It reminded us very much of New England with the plentiful tree, streams and a pristine lake.
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.
All of our kids attended U.T. Austin and most have settled there as teachers, firefighters and a computer geek.
Having raised 5 children it's obvious we are family oriented people. A large part of why we pursued the Vacation Rental business is the enjoyment we get from watching families re-bonding and kids catching their first or biggest fish. Heck, it gives you a little chill when a 4 year old tells you how big their fish was!
It's a very rewarding business.
Mark & 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.
Enjoyed a perfectly relaxing weekend at this exceptional vacation home with our friends. Both families (with 6 kids in tow) were completely bowled over by both the natural beauty of the surroundings as well as the comfort and care the owners have taken in creating such an ideal vacation spot. They thought of everything, it was clear!
The set up of the house and its complex system of decks and outdoor space is great for large families or groups of friends. Two masters with kings prevented the classic coin toss between adults and the 6 kids were more than happy with their choices between bunk beds, queens, and the sofa beds in the kids game room. While the house is perfectly outfitted with plenty of TVs for all, we did something rare and just turned it all off for the weekend to enjoy the "crown jewel" of the property, which is the outdoor living space could not have been easy to build especially at this level of quality.
There were plenty of kayaks for each guest, a private dock, a fire pit perfect for s'mores, plenty of tables and chairs on the many decks, a perfectly functioning gas grill, not to mention the basketball court right down the path. The lake itself is calm and not over-run with larger and / or motor boats. For kids (or adults) who like to fish, there is plenty of catch to be had.
This is an easy drive from both Dallas and Houston, both cities seemed worlds away...
Thank you to the Copus family for this much needed respite!
We very much enjoyed our stay at Pats Place. The whole family was
happy and hope to some day go back and visit again. Thank you for
allowing us to rent this home.
This house was amazing!! The interior was just right, the decks were amazing, the lake was beautiful, and the property owners were a delight and extremely responsive. Everyone had a great time and wanted the contact information for this place. Thank you Mark and Brenda!!
My family ENJOYED our stay at "Pat's House." The home was clean and well-maintained. Each bedroom had more than enough towels, and other necessities. Mark Copus provided great customer service and not only will I recommend Pat's Place/VCRs, I also plan to return as a guest.
Awesome and we will return!!
We used this cabin for our wedding weekend to accommodate all of our guests. We also rented Pats Place right next door. Mark and Brenda are phenomenal hosts and highly exceeded our expectations. These cabins are HUGE there's lots of space to relax, cook, sit by the fire, and be with the people you love! It even rained all morning on Saturday and we loved sitting on the huge porch drinking coffee and watching the rain. My friends and all I split the price and it made this rental very affordable. If you're looking to have a fantastic time in the piney woods this is exactly what you're looking for!
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.
