Crockett house description

Awesome view is just that, an awesome home with an awesome view. This lake front home is located on the cool spring fed waters of Houston County Lake. Texas' best kept secret is nestled in the piney woods of East Texas.
You will not feel that you are 2 hours from Houston or Dallas. This new home is clean and loaded with decks and a massive dock with two boat slips and shade cover. Swim from the dock or cast a line and land a trophy bass.
Or use the 4 complimentary kayaks and explore the quiet coves and islands (Bring Life Jackets).
We offer lighted fishing on the dock or shut the light off and amaze yourself with some of the best stargazing this side of West Texas.

Our Lake: Houston County Lake is a real gem. It is relatively unknown to most people outside of the area. It seems all our guest that have stayed have fallen in love with the quaint lake and the great swimming and fishing.
The area is reminiscent of small New England towns. Historic Churches and festivals abound.
The hills, trees and creeks make touring an enjoyable past time.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: 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.

                      Why the Owner Chose Crockett:
                      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.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Awesome View has, well, an awesome view. It's a picturesque home with beautiful gardens and a tremendous amount of decking and dock. It is a great place to get married or simple enjoy family time. We have other homes within and easy walk that make for other possibilities regarding renting.
