About the property

Here is an absolutely STUNNING house for rent within walking distance of Lake Texoma. It is located on 3/4 of an acre down a quiet dead end road for a very enjoyable stay. We are new to renting on Texoma but many of you have rented our properties on Lake Fork and know that we strive to have top notch service! This property contains TWO HOUSES for your stay and we have just completed a total renovation on both of them so they are like new!! The first house is a 2100 sq ft beautiful house with tons of character and charm. It is 3 bedroom and 2 bath with a fully furnished 5 star kitchen including new custom cabinets, granite countertops, and brand new stainless steel appliances. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and the second bedroom has a queen. The third bedroom has a day bed that converts to a king. Have a nice barbecue on the large covered patio with plenty of outdoor furniture or read a book outside in the morning and enjoy the birds and sounds of nature.

Guest House! Your stay will come with a fully furnished guest house for your friends and family! This house will be available at no extra charge to groups of 7 or more or to those groups who pay for a minimum of 7 guests who want the use of the extra house. The guest house is 1000 sq ft 1 bath, completely renovated and includes a fully furnished 5 star kitchen, living area, and two large bedrooms. One bedroom has a king bed and the other has a queen. The bathroom has a huge walk in shower. Staying in both houses gives you over 3100 sq feet of luxury to enjoy your vacation to the fullest with your friends and family!

I am NOT interested in renting this house for a high school prom party or an underage drinking party or teenage birthday party, sorority party, etc or anything of the sort. If you are underage or throwing a party this isn't the house for you please don't even ask as my inbox is full of these kinds of requests. This house is great for fishermen, family reunions, etc. Thanks!

About Chris

My wife and I started out buying a house at Lake Fork to use and also rent out to help with the bills. I wasn't prepared for the amount of demand we would have and it has been booked solid for the past 7 years so we never have an opportunity to go! So we bought 2 more houses on the same lake and the same thing happened. We decided this is way more fun than a 401k so here we are again offering a wonderful rental on Texoma to you!

Chris purchased this house in 2014

Why Chris chose Pottsboro

We searched for three years for our perfect rental on Lake Texoma. When we walked in the door we knew it was for us. Of course since I am a custom home builder, I had to spend almost an entire year making it the way I wanted it:). Now that we are finished though, you will see that we went WAY above and beyond on these houses but it was SO worth it. Check out the pictures.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Chris for letting us use your beautiful home. Our event would not have been the same without your hospitality. Thank you again, ---Xi Epsilon

2490 words are not enough to describe how dirty this house was. Cobwebs everywhere, towels were ripped, the cabin in the back didn't have any supplies. One toilet paper in the whole house. When we moved the couch in the living room we found dirty underwear. Lamps with no light bulbs, the third bedroom is not a bedroom, horrible beds and no insulation, it was freezing in that room. Fireplace and grill were dirty and took us over an hour to clean. The bed in the guest house was a mattress on the floor. The description "stunning" was misleading and laughable. The bathroom in the guest house was not cleaned. One of the cots was broken and permanently at an angle. We will never rent from vrbo, obviously there is no quality control and they just list properties without checking them. I have pictures of everything if you would like to see them. The amount of money they charged for this house was exhorbitant, I would not even had paid 50 dollars a night. I really would like my money back. If I could I would give it a zero, but the lowest is 1.

Owner's Response: I spent 5 hours personally cleaning this house before Christmas. These people called over and over before they got there and asked the dumbest questions both before and when they got there and I told my wife this was going to be a nightmare renter and I was right. That is why I spent so much extra time on it. I asked my wife when we left if it was good enough and she was to the point of irritated because I made it so over the top clean as she put it. I almost cancelled them because I knew what was coming up but I was afraid of being called racist. The husband called me and was raving on how beautiful the house was as he interrupted me and my family's Christmas dinner with SIX calls because he couldn't work the TV remote. There was not a single light bulb out in the entire house as I checked every single socket. I went to the store and even bought extra toilet paper for them. THEY broke the cot and I didn't even charge them to try to avoid them. Next time I will go with my gut when selecting renters. I am sure my fellow VRBO owners are happy that I took one for the team here.

Property was nice and roomie but filthy .

  • 1 of 5

Got there....linens were piled in laundry room and dirty dishes in the sink. Floors were sticky and over half the light bulbs burned out . Dumpsters full of trash . Several huge cockroaches on the bed. I would like to get a full refund. I brought my family and friends and was embarrassed of the whole filthy situation. I am a regular user of VRBO but this experience has made me second guess ever using the service again..Gross household. We had to clean everything before we used it.

Ps. Wishing we would have just left and gotten a hotel in town.

Owner's Response: There was someone who stayed in the house unauthorized and had left a mess. I offered to drive from Dallas personally to take care of it but was told it wasn't that bad and not to bother. After their stay I did personally go to clean it myself and discovered burned out light bulbs and several other minor issues that I paid him to fix were not fixed. I was irritated so I fired my maintenance guy and will be be personally cleaning and maintaining the property until I can find someone who doesn't take advantage. If you are coming back to the area give us another shot and I will complete your stay.

A nice size home for our large group.

  • 4 of 5

The house was very nice but could have definitely used a good cleaning before we arrived. The skillet was very dirty and unusable and the ceiling fans were caked in dust. Many many cobwebs throughout the house. The house itself was beautiful

so my only issue was with the unclean conditions. On a side note, for a house that advertises sleeping 18, there were only 4 coffee mugs.

Could be really great, but wasn't

  • 3 of 5

The set up is great for a large family or group and it was relatively clean. I realize when other people are using the house things get overlooked, but a bunch of dishes we pulled out to use for breakfast were dirty. The floor and the kitchen sink in the back cottage both needed a good scrub. Some of the "quirky" elements were really nice - the living room is large and open and great for visiting, but the "toilet throne" and odd bathroom layouts in general made a lot of it inaccessible - this not a good place for people with mobility issues or a baby who's a new walker. Also, there's hardly any place to hang any clothes - which is probably okay if you came to play in the lake, but a problem for a group in town for dressy family events and church.

The two biggest issues were in the back cottage. First, there is about an inch and a half difference between the bathroom floor and the main floor - but the tile is the same, so you don't notice it - until you almost fall and/or stub your toe. Everyone did both - multiple times. The worst part is after we loaded up our laundry basket in the car, then went back a few minutes later with suitcases, we discovered fire ants swarming out of the laundry basket and all over the car! I had to pull everything out and kill all the ants in the car, then go through the laundry basket piece by piece to get rid of and kill all the ants. Three of us got bit/stung in the process. We went back to the room with the king bed (which is on the floor, not on a frame) and could see them in the cracks between the trim and the tile. Now, I understand there are bugs in Texas in the summer, but I should be able to put my laundry basket on the floor inside the house and not have it swarmed with ants.

Honestly, if I had come with a bunch of kids to play at the lake, it would have been fine (except for tripping and fire ants), but for our family with such a range of ages and needs, it didn't work. BUT, we did get a lot more time to visit than we would have if we were all in separate hotel rooms, so that was really nice.

Great location with lots to do in the neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

The houses were unique and comfortable. Lots of yard for the grandkids to run and play. The grill on the deck was just right for cooking a few meals for the 11 of us. The walk to the lake was an adventure for the little ones because of the woods and then, the lake itself. They wore themselves out swimming in the lake. The house is close enough to Denison to make the run to Walmart for supplies. Brookshire's in Pottsboro had lots of food stuffs to back up the pantry. We went a little further to Sherman for Mexican food and a movie. It was good.
