                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: We have been coming up to Lake Texoma for years. My husband rented the house across the street from good friends in the 80's and 90's. After we met and married in 1997, we wanted to get a place of our own. Then, this wonderful lakehouse came up for sale and we jumped at the chance and bought it. It was an easy drive from Dallas/Ft Worth where we lived at the time. Now, we're living and working in Austin so don't have as much time to come here. So, we decided to share it with other lake enthusiasts and vacationers who like the outdoors. We hope you enjoy the Lake Texoma area, Mill Creek Marina and our Lakehouse as much as we do!

                  Why the Owner Chose Pottsboro:
                  When we lived in Dallas, it was only 1-1/2 hours away. It was so convenient for a relaxing weekend getaway. We still come up every chance we can and may end up retiring here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy coffee in the morning and cooking/entertaining on our covered front porch. We have a boat and the Mill Creek Marina is close by for launching. We boat over to the islands and swim for the day. Lots of R&R, and peace and quiet here.
