About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bath Texoma Country Retreat. Just minutes from Lake Texoma.

Lake Texoma Country Retreat.

Drive 60 miles from North Dallas to Lake Texoma to get away from the city for a weekend. Tall Oak trees surround the home nestled on the back of 10 private acres. Enjoy the peaceful breeze filled with the sounds of birds on Adirondack chairs on the patio. Enjoy a complete wrap around porch, a 10’ fire pit (complete with complementary fire wood and Adirondack seating), and a BBQ smoker. You’re only getting started! The property easily sleeps 8. There is a king in the master, a queen in the guest bedroom, bunk beds that are both full size beds in the 3rd bedroom, and then two Broyhill futons in the living room. The kitchen has a stove, microwave, dishwasher and plenty of basics. (Posts, pans, coffee pot, spices etc. ) Only steps away from the home is a 40’x40’ shop complete with a pool table, full size air hockey table, darts, 60" TV with 200 channels, and a bar with stools. Added in 2015 are 4800 watts of sound that fill the shop with tunes! This Man Cave also has AC! The property features 2 full size refrigerators for guests (1 in the kitchen and 1 in the shop) and an empty full size freezer if needed. There is a covered arbor with a Smoker. On the back deck there is a BBQ grill attached to the main propane tank (small tank is not needed). The home is well stocked, if you would like to know about an amenity, please ask!

If you are looking to be active, the home is 10 minutes from Buncombe Marina and equally close to the sandy beaches of Lake Texoma on the Oklahoma side. Outstanding fishing guide service is available on Lake Texoma known for Striper Bass fishing. There is plenty of space to park your boat or trailer during your stay. There are also plenty of Casino’s and golf courses available in Southern Oklahoma.

This is the perfect spot for family or friends to drive 1 hour north of DFW and relax!

We can help direct you to hiking trails and off road trails.

We do not rent the ATV but can direct you to a golf cart rental. A vehicle to tow it would be required.

If you have a party of greater than 8, please contact us. We have another property available that sleeps 18.

About Joe Schneider

We are from Colorado. We were searching for ways to spend time outside and found this property. The property is 10 minutes from Lake Texoma. We love the seclusion but proximity to the lake!

Joe Schneider purchased this house in 2015

Why Joe Schneider chose Kingston

This property is truly a country retreat. I love to see hummingbirds from the deck. We have a special needs child and he absolutely loves getting outside. The Man Cave is a terrific set up to relax in the shade. The fire pit is huge, and set up to accommodate family and friends. This is not so much a "lake house" alone, but is more of a country place close to the lake!

What makes this house unique

You'll be hard pressed to find a property that has this balance of new amenities, (built in 1995, remodeled in 2011), combined with such a serene environment. The 10 acres are secluded which is very unique near Texoma where places by the water are close to each other. That is the value of being 10 minutes away from the marina. The home is surrounded by mature trees. The wrap around porch has seats all the way around to sit and relax. The kitchen is set up for us to spend time there during the week, and is fully functional.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We came for Thanksgiving from far & near Oklahoma and Texas to bring Holiday cheer! The women & men thought the "man cave" was GREAT! We challenged all guests to beat Tanner's basketball score of 58! Sadly, because of rain, we did not get to enjoy the fire pit. But Paden still played his guitar inside for a bit. Meah, the toddler, enjoyed the long long haul where she rand back and forth chasing her ball. We played games and laughed and enjoyed family time. Your place was the best. Grandma wants to buy, for a dime. We hope to return for an annual trip because we think your place is really hip.

Great Weekend With Guys

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place to get away for those of all ages. The “shop” was our favorite part of the house - TV, air hockey, hot shot, pool table, etc. Private and peaceful. Would recommend to others.

Fantastic lake house with amazing amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time we have rented a vacation/lake house, and I have to say that if we ever rent another one somewhere else it will be hard for it to compare to this one! They are right to put the picture of the fire pit right up front because it really is such an amazing feature of the house! We had a lot of fun around the fire almost every night we were there, cooking hot dogs, roasting marshmallows, and just enjoying relaxing by the fire. The garage was also wonderful! After full days on the lake, it was nice to relax in there, playing games and listening to music (the sound system is unbelievable!). The house was also beautiful inside. We could tell that the owners put a great deal of thought into every detail. The decor was so nice and homey and the beds were super comfortable. The kitchen was great for fixing breakfast in the mornings, and then we were able to eat it outside on the awesome deck and watch the hummingbirds. The only downside to the whole thing was that the grill was so big and impressive that now I feel like mine is inadequate. We grilled out a couple of times and it was great. There really isn't one negative thing that I can say about this place. If you are considering renting a house near Texoma, you should definitely rent this one. It's a wonderful place in the woods to get away and enjoy your family!

Guys Trip/Fantasy Football Draft

  • 5 of 5

Visited 60 Miles North this past weekend for a guys trip/fantasy football draft. We had a party of 6 and the house was spacious and met every one of our needs. Kitchen has everything for meals, plenty of fridge space and seating, and there’s a BBQ grill on the porch. The shop/man cave/playroom was the highlight for us. We spent most of the time in there drinking, playing card games, corn hole, TV(hooked up a personal game system to it), basketball, air hockey, pool, staying cool with the AC and fans, and listening to music. No neighbors so you can be as loud as you want. We ran out of time for a fire but the fire pit with wood is ready for use and there’s a smoker. Satellite WiFi and satellite TV service available as well. Limited cell service on AT&T but it was nice to disconnect for the weekend.

Lake Texoma is a short drive away and you’re close to civilization if a Walmart run is needed. The house is a short hour drive from North Texas.

Joe(owner) was easy to work with, provides all information needed to have a successful trip, super accommodating, and is easy to get ahold of. Booking and payment through VRBO was a breeze.

We plan on making 60 Miles North our go to for our yearly guys trip. Thanks Joe!

Fantastic Home for a quick country getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was fabulous! Wasn't anything you needed that was not there (except the food you need to bring of course). Spent LOTS of time in the fantastic "man-cave" with our boys and had a blast. Joe was EXTREMELY responsive if we needed anything, or even just had a question. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this property!! Thank you for sharing your home!

Great property for a low key vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house offers everything you could ask for to host a group. The game room/shop was a fantastic place to hang out for the evening. We are already planning a return visit so that we can take advantage of the outdoor activities in the fall. The owner is very communicative and even provided a list of ideas for things we night enjoy in the area.
