About Liz Segrest
My husband and I built this home when moving to the Houston area. I have loved the hiking trails and solitude provided while still being close to shopping, food and entertainment. I especially enjoy cool evenings sitting around a fire in the great outdoors with my dogs sleeping nearby. If you love spending time in the forest and need to get away from the "rat race" this is your place.
Liz Segrest purchased this House in 1998
Why Liz Segrest chose New Caney
We have always lived outside the city and wanted a place that was secluded but near work and everything a city has to offer. The home sits on land that was originally part of the adjacent tree farm which contains quite diverse fauna and flora with very tall trees providing shade to the forest floor below. We tried to maintain the forest setting when we built the house and love the setting.
What makes this House unique
Located 5-10 minutes from Interstate 69 and the Grand Parkway (Houston's outer loop) with easy access to The Woodlands, Kingwood, shopping and more.

A beautiful home hidden in the trees. Quiet and secluded, but close to many stores and restaurants.
We loved our stay. The house is clean, quiet and comfortable. We also enjoyed the property and barn (man cave). The best possible choice in the New Caney/Kingwood area!
Thank you James. We would love to have you back. You were our best guest to date.
Very relaxing. Enjoyed the getaway from the city.
Very spacious and great fire pits by pond and what we called our man barn. Television, pool table, bar, fire pit all while sitting on couch. Heaven!!
Christmas on the Hill
House on the Hill was perfect for our family Christmas Celebration. The home is clean, cozy and inviting. LIz even put up a Christmas tree for us. Our family hiked, biked, played pool, raced remote cars and simply relaxed in the beautiful setting. We especially liked the location, because you have access to many conveniences without fighting Houston traffic. Will very likely make a return visit. Thank you for a Perfect Christmas Vacation!
Enjoyable and Private
If you want privacy in a big city, then this is it. This home was utilized on a business trip for about 10 days and proved to be absolutely great. Being from Wisconsin and having a cattle ranch, the big city of Houston is not my forte. Additionally, this home is a great location for those who want a good access to the freeway, to be close to The Woodlands and far enough away from the big city of Houston. As for the Owner/Manager, Liz is a great person that works hard to make sure you’re checked in and comfortable. Thank you and we hope to be back.
Serene and relaxing
Very nice and quiet country setting for this home, the house is comfortable and has everything you need at home and very easy to access the property. The AC was comfortable for the one night it was warm. The barn with the games was enjoyed by my family too. The trails are nice to hike but any outdoor activities become troublesome with all the mosquitoes in the property and surrounding woods. Liz was very helpful and checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. Highly recommend this property for families looking to stay close enough to the city without the traffic noise
Property is near Interstate 69 and the Grand Parkway but is still secluded. Enjoy all the amenities a big city has to offer while being away from its' hustle and bustle.
Multiple public golf options are available in the area including Oakhurst, Tour 18, Cypresswood, Houston Golf Club and Red Wolf Resort. Private courses abound in Kingwood and the surrounding area.
Lake Houston, Lake Conroe and Lake Livingston are within an hour driving distance.
The beaches are about an hour drive. We also have great rivers/creeks for canoeing and kayaking. All within an hour drive as well as National Forest for hiking or biking.
