About the Property

Upon entering, you will be pleased with the with 25' high open ceiling great room, featuring a river rock wood burning fireplace.

You can make yourself at home with a fully stocked kitchen and a small sit down bar, which separates the kitchen from the dining area.

The overstuffed cushioned couch folds out to a queen size bed for extra guests. A flat screen t.v.with Direct T.V. channels, a dvd player, movies as well as books and board games are provided for you.

You will enjoy the lofted master suite, which 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. If you choose to sleep in, a large shade can be pulled down for privacy. The King size temperpedic mattress assures you a fantastic sleep experience. The furniture is solid oak with, slide out night stands, lots of drawers for storage, a 4 drawer chest of drawers and t.v. with local channels. There are also 2 walk-in closets and a ceiling fan. A window a/c is provided for extra cool sleeping at night along with the central heat and air.
Down the hall from the great room area is a private bedroom with two single beds, closet, and ceiling fan. A full bath with shower and tub are across the hall.

Near the back door you will find a full size washer and dryer utility room.

Recessed dimmable flood lights abound throughout this home making it as cozy or crazy as you like.

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 lower deck is perfect for grilling out, with your choice of charcoal or gas grilling, dining table and chairs and a high top table for enjoying the view and beverages. The upper deck is great for morning coffee, relaxing, and watching the sunsets. Patio furniture includes a slider sofa, chairs and glass tables.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

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.

Why the Owner Chose Pottsboro, TX, USA:
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 built 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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
