Excellent View by VR 3000 01/05/2017
The property has an epic feeling tone and look. The owners are very accessible and customer friendly. This will be my place to stay every time I am in Houston County.
You get what you pay for! by Shadowfax 10/21/2016
This couldn't be a better place for individuals or family members to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet, the sounds of nature, and beautiful surroundings of a lake environment. The descriptions and photos on the website are exactly what you get and well worth the price. The owners, Mark and Brenda, are the real deal and sincerely have the visitor's best interest at heart and want to provide an enjoyable stay. The property is VERY well maintained! We're going to stay at the Creekside next time to enjoy time in the woods with the deer. The drive from Dallas was very easy and not so long where the kids start to ask "when are we going to get there." A definite place to return to!
Successful Girls Getaway Weekend by Cate 10/20/2016
This was our 4th year at Vacation Country Rentals, and our first year to stay at Awesome View. The house is appropriately named - the view is amazing. We lucked out and even got some gorgeous pics of the moon setting over the lake our last morning here. It had plenty of room for the 3 of us, and tons of deck choices for lounging, playing games, or just enjoying the view. Kudos to Mark and Brenda for building such a nice place for folks like us to share and relax.
Fantastic, Relaxing and Fun for all! by Troy S 08/17/2016
Great place to stay and play. We took the family (5 kids) for a lake vacation and that's what we got, a vacation. This is a fantastic place to visit and enjoy the lake. Decks to accommodate swimming, fishing, cooking or just relaxing. The location on the lake is perfect. Great for the kids to swim without boat traffic yet a short troll with our boat to the main part of the lake for wakeboarding. We all had a great time and appreciate the hospitality. We will return again and again.
Another "Awesome" stay at Awesome View!! by Rexanne J 06/14/2016
As always it was hard to leave the tranquility of the lake to return to the hustle and bustle of Houston. "Awesome View" was perfect as usual. We caught a few fish and enjoyed kayaking in the early morning and at sunset. This property has everything you need for a perfect lake retreat. Cannot wait to return. Thank you Mark and Brenda for our little piece of "Paradise in the Pines".
Another Great Stay in Mark And Brenda's Homes by Charlie G. 03/22/2016
Stayed at Awesome View for the second time. The facilities are always spotless and outside areas are beautifully landscaped. This is our fourth stay with them over the past few years. Fishing was mostly about fishing and not as much about catching as in the past. Lots of rain prior to the trip had the lake stirred up. Hope to return again maybe in the summer or next spring.
Spring break by Married with Children (Mount Belvieu, Tx) 03/21/2016
Like the name of the house, awesome view! Emaculate kept house. Everything you need for a fun, relaxing vacation.
Very Nice by Peter S 01/15/2016
Stayed here for a weekend with some friends- had a great time and were very comfortable. Very pretty setting. Owners are very nice and pleasant.
Fantastic Family Retreat by Bob 12/02/2015
What an enjoyable time at Awesome View. The decking provided three areas (or five depending on how you count) for enjoying the outdoors. The weather was perfect for us and I greatly enjoyed watching the grands drowning worms. The Copus' were excellent hosts--helpful when you needed them but never hovering. We plan to return with the crappie in the spring.
What a comfortable weekend!!!! by Charlie 11/27/2015
I spent the weekend with my son and two sons-in-law for a men's retreat weekend. Awesome View is aptly named, but the entire home is as comfortable as home. We didn't lack for any comforts, which allowed us to really concentrate on the purpose for our time away. I had a secondary "mission" for the weekend also...my wife asked me to check out as much of the other accommodations as possible, with a view toward a future booking for the entire family. Mark was very gracious in escorting me to a viewing of the two homes large enough to accommodate my whole family of 8 adults and 7 grandchildren. I was thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness and attention of home-like comfort in all of the places. We will not hesitate to book a stay at one of the larger homes for the entire family. Thank you, Mark and Brenda, for your hospitality and your attention to making this home-away-from-home a place to which we can look forward to returning.
Awesome Stay! by Kevi B. 10/19/2015
Awesome View is the perfect vacation home. All the amenities of your own home with an absolutely Awesome View of Houston County Lake.

I sty with Mark and Brenda Copus every trip to the Crockett area and bring my family along fro Spring Break and other vacation opportunities. The amenities they have are second to none and their hospitality is tops!

You can't go wrong with Vacation Country Rentals, all of their homes are excellent!
Should be Called Perfect View by Colin M. 08/17/2015
We stayed here for two nights as a bonus stop over on our way to our family vacation, this place is AWESOME. The house was clean and had everything you would need for a comfortable stay however the real showpiece is the outside spaces, the top deck has two seating areas, one fully shaded, one level has a fire pit which I imagine would be fantastic in the colder months then the dock itself is just made for relaxing from sun up to sun down at which point the stars were amazing. Other little bonuses are the kayaks and various water toys available for use.

Lastly, and worth a mention, is that we stay in a lot of vacation homes and always leave them in the condition we find them and until now have never received a thank you from the owners so that was a nice touch. Will definitely return one day.
Relaxing and Enjoyable stay at Awesome View! by Monique 01/19/2015
Our family stayed at Awesome View over the holiday break. The house was very clean and quite comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor areas, especially the fire pit, where we spent hours talking while we roasted marshmallows and enjoyed the view of the beautiful lake. We took daily walks around the neighborhood, enjoying the deer and a variety of birds. This property is beautiful and we hope to come back in the summer or early fall.

Awesome View by n/a Fannet Tx. 09/16/2014
Had a great stay and family really enjoyed it. We will be back after the first of the year when fishing is better. Thanks for everything.
Awesome weekend at Awesome View!! by laurat 07/19/2014
More than we imagined it would be! Mouth dropping gorgeous. Clean and fresh as the lake breeze. Weather was prefect and the surprising and refreshing misters on decks made for comfortable setting outside!

Best family retreat! Thanks! Please Note: The misting system was a maintenance nightmare. We removed it and have not found a system that works.




Everything at Awesome View was wonderful. by Shari 04/17/2014
Everything at Awesome View was wonderful. We spent a long weekend and were not ready to leave. The property was just as advertised! Great views of lake, beautiful decks for eating, relaxing, and fishing. We will definitely stay again.
A guest from Port Neches, TX by New Guest 03/15/2014
My family had a wonderful time during spring break! My children, grandchildren, and I truly enjoyed the relaxed comfort of the lake house...the different decks, walkways, dock were in immaculate shape, as well as the house itself. S'mores by the firepit were a special treat...great weather to enjoy the campfire! The kids played hide n seek, fished, and kayaked and even tried to swim in the too chilly lake waters...we will def. be back in the warmer summer months! Thank you so much ... Awesome View was just perfect!!

Just Awesome! A great property for a fun family getaway! by New Guest 08/17/2013
We had a great weekend at Awesome View! Wonderful house that is well maintained and clean! The kitchen is well stocked and there is lots of room on the property to spread out. We enjoyed the trees, birds and squirrels. In the hot August heat, we loved the misters on the pier to help cool us off. Mark and Brenda are fabulous hosts and very accessible. They have several other properties that are equally as nice. We will definitely be back!

Liz and Robert, Friendswood, Texas by Liz and Robertt 08/01/2013
We loved Awesome View. The home and view were perfect and our children loved the water and fishing. It was very quiet and relaxing. Just what we all needed for a mid-summer break. We will definitely be back.
Great Getaway by Barb 06/19/2013
We (two couples) stayed at Awesome View for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The house was spacious, and the decks and view were amazing. Although it was hot, we were quite comfortable sitting on the deck with the ceiling fans, enjoying the view. The kitchen was well stocked; we cooked a delicious meal on the gas grill one evening. We also ate at Moosehead Cafe and Tchoupitoulas in downtown Crockett. Mark and Brenda were great to work with. We would highly recommend Awesome View and hope to return soon! Please Note: Tchoupitoulas has closed, we were very sorry to see it go as it was our favorite.
The name says it all by FiV 05/10/2013
Myself and a group of friends decided to stay here instead of a hotel for a wedding we had in the area. Best decision we've ever made. The house is great, the yard is extremely well manicured, and we couldn't have asked for a better view at sunset. On top of that, we found out later from others in the wedding party that we were paying less per person for the entire weekend than what they paid per night at their hotel! My only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. If you're looking for a place in the area, look no further.
Awesome time @ Awesome view by Melissa D 04/06/2013
We had a great time at Awesome View lake house! The view is gorgeous!! The house was comfortable, and has everything you need. Just show up & relax! The owners were great to work with, and made sure our stay was the best. Thanks, Mark & Brenda! We hope to visit again soon!
Awesome View is definitely Awesome by The B Family 03/14/2013
We rented Awesome View for 2 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The view is definitely awesome. The boat slips are very handy. We loved using the fire pit. Everything was spotless and well-stocked. We hope to be able to rent again soon!
Labor Day Weekend by Brewster8633 09/05/2012
Amazing Property. Clean, Well Kept, Well Supplied. Owners were very nice to work with.

The real highlight of the property is the back of the house/dock. We had plenty of room to sit outside and relax while taking in the "Awesome View" of the lake.

There is no doubt in my mind that we will visit again.
Great time!! by Mat 08/28/2012
We had a great time. Nice cool water to dip into. Great fishing and it was just perfect weather. I will go back for sure.
Awesome View is AWESOME!!! by Jetsons (Round Rock TX.) 07/16/2012
If you are looking for a great getaway, This is the place! Very relaxing, quiet and peaceful. Deer and other wildlife are abundant in the area. The fishing was great! Everyone we met were all very friendly and engaging. I can't say enough about the great hospitality that Mark gave us. The home was very clean, neat and Very well taken care of. Thank you so much for making our vacation a great and memorable time had by all. I would definitely recommend it to friends and relatives. The owner was very helpful and prompt with answers to any questions we had. Looking forward to going back!!
What's your first name? W. by New Guest 07/11/2012
We just spent a week at "Awesome View" ~ myself, husband, son and his friends and, had a wonderful time. The extra amenities that this house has exceeds all expectations. We have stayed in many vacation rentals & it is sometimes difficult to know if the description & pictures are accurate. Well, as the pictures indicate ~ this house is amazing. We turned on all the outside lights each night; lighting up the trail of deck stairs, lights around the lower water level decks and fishing lights made this house look so beautiful. We took out boat out one night and could see the house lit up from across the water ~ it was really quite something to view. Everything inside the house was also so beautiful. Everything you could possibly want in the kitchen. The owners Mark & Brenda were more than accommodating with all my questions & emails and eager to prepare for our arrival. The wood flooring in this home is beautiful; beds were comfortable with extra pillows & blankets; loved cooking in the kitchen; bathrooms & showers were great and decorated so well; provided beach towels (which we had forgotten). Everything was new & the home was very clean, something that's very important to me. The Flowers outside were so incredibly beautiful it was like being in your own private Sanctuary! There simply are not enough words to fully describe "Awesome View" and the comfort level it provides. We were in a melancholy state of mind when we had to leave and can only look to the future for a time to return to this wonderful and beautiful home. Thanks for sharing such a great place for our family and friends to spend our vacation at and we look forward to returning soon.
What a great place! by Leann (Conroe Texas) 04/07/2012
I decided on the day of that my family needed to get out of Conroe for the weekend. I booked online and after talking with the owners Mark & Brenda Copus, arranged to stay at Awesome View. We headed out to Crockett and we loved every minute we stayed. It was really peaceful: My husband was off his cell phone and took our oldest son fishing as I lounged around with the baby. Stars at night, lake during the day..Who needs more?
Awesome View was as awesome as advertised!! by John and family 07/19/2011
My wife and I rented Awesome View for a long weekend with our daughter, son-in-law and three grandkids (ages 3,5,11). It was a wonderful weekend - even with 100 degree days. Everything is as pictured in the ad and absolutely clean and well kept. The decks were a delight with misters and fans to keep us cool and in the shade. Grandkids caught lots of pan fish off the dock and we enjoyed the kayaks and 2-person fishing boat. We hope to return for a fall trip and would highly recommend this property to others.

really loved the fire at night. Everything was perfect. Thanks again!
Lake Front Paradise by suziq 07/20/2010
We had a wonderful week at Awesome View. It definitely has the right name. This place is a hidden treasure. The outside decks are the best part. Great for families with kids. The owners have taken great care to make this whole place feel homey and warm. All the flowers they have carefully placed all around the outside make it look so pretty. We were very impressed with the whole experience and will definitely return. They even provided floats and water toys. They were very friendly and helpful to us when booking and bent over backwards to provide answers to all our questions. We absolutely loved this place.

The best kept secret in Texas: Houston County Lake by tjoseph 02/04/2010
I had a great time at awesome view! I know my Dad loved it too because he grew up here! We went kayaking and boating and swimming! My cousin got three HUGE fish, I learned how to fish, Mom relaxed. Dad found a house he grew up in that looked the same as it did 35 years ago. My only complaint is that we didn’t stay long enough! Thanks Mark & Brenda for an awesome vacation.

From Dad: The sunset views, the fishing, the decks and that cool lake I have always loved, every detail was perfect. You guys have done an incredible job and are wonderful hosts. We will be back!

Awesome View - Houston County Lake by Bobby P 02/01/2010
Wow, what an awesome place. The house is beautiful, right on the lake, with an absolutely inspiring deck down to the water. Sunsets across the lake were picture perfect. I found time to read, swim, and just plain relax as my wife and daughter did the same. We will definitely be back and will tell others about this place. Thanks for letting us stay in Awesome View.
