We listed our 6 homes with Homeaway listing numbers at the bottom of this page. The new event hall is ready for weddings, reunions or corporate events.
Lakeside has an occupancy limit of 22 that is strictly enforced. The rental of additional homes allows that limit to be exceeded. Please contact us for details. This property is owned and operated by Vacation Country Rentals LLC
We have a crew of people that keep things running smoothly and looking good for your visit. Trash is picked from the home up in the morning and evening by our crew. We have a dumpster available if needed.
The huge kitchen has plenty of room for all your guest. It has 2 refrigerators (one in the large pantry) for your convenience. We also have local catering available for those nights you don't want to cook. Ask for details in advance.
The huge 28' x 24' lower deck overlooks the water and has a fire-pit in the middle of it for those chilly evenings or balmy night fire.
The light show at night can be impressive, from the lighted bridge to the 'over the water' deck with lighting underneath. Of course, if you prefer star gazing, they can all be shut down by the switches located around the property with advanced notice.
The massive wrap around porch is a great place to enjoy a relaxing time looking at the lake with family and friends. Enjoy a meal while watching the sunset with family members.
Lakeside faces west which offers amazing sunsets, the added bonus is the shade that is available around the home.
The front Gazebo is a great place to getaway from the crowds for a little "me" time. It is a private and quiet area. In the spring it is loaded with blooming Azaleas and flowering Red Buds as well as Dogwoods. The brook that is pumped up from the lake trickles down beside the stone walkway making a magical water sound that can leave one in a trance like state. Sit on the porch and feel the tension fade from your body!
The home has substantial parking for 10-12 vehicles with a little strategic parking. We can arrange for additional parking with a little advance notice.
As you walk up to the home you notice the entry porch with table, chairs, fan and a gas grill with a large tank so you don't run out in the middle of grilling.
You walk through the entry door and see the game table, couch and end tables, this has become a favorite area with those that like a little space.
A few steps around the corner and the home opens into the huge kitchen, dining, living room areas. Kitchens are always "the place" to hang out and Lakesides is no different. The home has a tremendous flow to it.
The 7 bedrooms consist of 5 kings, one queen, and one large room with two sets of bunks (full bottoms, twin tops). The huge upper game-room has a large corner couch, additional couch a 47' flat screen with Netflix as well as 2 more sets of bunks. The game-room also has a full sized table and chairs, a small refrigerator, microwave and sink.
The home has 4 bathrooms, 3 are very large and could be considered small rooms by some standards. They are modern and clean.
The master bedroom is huge and has it's own sitting area, I don't want to say too much, but....I would do what I could to scoff it before anyone else does.lol
Lakeside comes with an assortment of small boats. You are responsible for the safety of your guests and we ask you wear life jackets as required by law. The game warden has issued expensive tickets to violators.
Houston County lake was Texas' top bass lake prior to Lake Fork, it is still listed as a lake likely to produce a record Bass. It is one of the few lakes not fed by the Trinity River. Little Elkhart creek is its primary source water along with countless underground springs. The lake is considered a constant level lake and varies little compared with most lakes.
Spring Creek golf club is located less that 5 miles from the homes. Fishing guides are available with advance notice. Crockett has lots of antique shops and one of a kind restaurants. Please contact us for updated information.
Crockett and the surrounding towns have a multitude of festivals including The Lovefest in Lovelady, Christmas on the Square in Crockett, The Peanut Festival in Grapeland and Christmas in Kennard.
The Texas State railroad is a beautiful 45 minute country drive. It features old steam trains and travels to Rusk Texas.
We are able to house up to 66 people on assigned bedding if all houses are rented. Only registered guests are allowed due to insurance requirements.
House limits are set for each property and are expected to be honored. Sorry, we have to be very strict on this
