Property Details

Your very own cabin (home) in the setting of a State Park. The year round creek with bench and bridge to the lake park area. 7/10's mile Looking from the back side of the home towards fern gully. Looking down the trail to the creek (less steep option available.) The trail with bridges and benches. Looking up from fern hollow to the home. The spring comes out the side of the hill where it has washed away the soil, only to vanish at the bottom of the hill. The fern gardens always seem 10 degrees cooler. The view from the front deck towards the street, which cant be seen and is certainly part of the appeal. This rendering show the home layout. Very accurate. The clean and comfortable interior is the perfect place to watch cable or Netflix after a hard day playing. A closer view of the well stocked kitchen area. The comfortable and roomy living area. Cable and Neflix included. The home has wireless broadband and Netflix so you may relax after a busy day exploring. The Master Bedroom with attached bathroom. Internet and cable included. Master Bathroom. Granite counter and tiled full tub. The 2nd Master with King Bed (with 4 people). Both Bedrooms have 32 The second bathroom off the 2nd bedroom and kitchen area. Looking towards the secluded home from the street side. Looking towards the street. This rendering shows an accurate depiction of the lighting. You are free to do an outdoor meal like this but you may have to bring some of the items! The creek runs year round, even in the driest of times. Kids seem to have a great time catching minnows and frogs. We call this the conjoined tree. It has a dead trunk connected by a large root to a thriving trunk. There are several fern gardens. I love these areas as they always seem cooler on those hot days. Looking up from the creek at the bridge towards the home and fern garden deck. A rendering of Creekside. Creekside is the cabin in the woods for those times you simply need to getaway. Of course, Internet, Cable and Netflix let you cheat a little. Looking toward the road. Creekside is well off the road and the driveway is solid even in wet weather. Looking up from the fern garden, spring area. Looking from the fern deck to the home. This path is lighted at night time and controlled by a switch in the home. A map of all our properties. The property has been described by guests as their own personal State Park. We think that's accurate. My brother was in a trance walking the property. He ket getting in the pictures so I decided to use him as a cheap model, one time! A rendering of the back yard with the fern deck and house deck. Both are quite large. One of the many bridges that dot the property. One of the scattered benches. We have a variety of birds that live in or visit East Texas The bridge is hidden in the background. There are lots of areas to explore. Here's that State Park again! Another view of the year round creek. You're almost certain to see deer during your stay. Your very own cabin in the setting of a State Park. This fall picture shows the beauty of the home and surroundings. This trail runs beside the creek and has benches to enjoy the peace and quiet..

Wonderful Stay, Once Again by Dog Lover 01/05/2017
This property is perfect for a couple or a family retreat. The price can't be beat, and the home is always perfectly clean and ready for your arrival. It's a great place to unplug, if one wishes, there is cable tv and netflix! The kitchen is spacious, just ready for the family to cook meals or use the outdoor charcoal grill. Love it and the owners are great as well!
Very Peaceful and Relaxing by Anonymous 11/28/2016
We had a wonderful Thanksgiving stay. The cabin was remote, but not difficult to find thanks to the owner's directions. There are neighbors close by, but unless you wander through a wooded area to the back road behind the property and walk a ways, you would never know it! The lot is large, very private (locking gate at entrance) and very well kept. There are two decks; one large deck at the cabin, and another slightly smaller one close to the nearby running creek. Each deck has an ample number of chairs, a nice Weber grill, a table, and lighting options. The lighted path to the 2nd deck was a nice touch. The cabin was very nice and comfortable with two bedrooms with comfortable beds and two full-sized bathrooms. Everything was clean and well-maintained and all of the light switches were labeled, which was very helpful, especially with the outside lighting. There is also a fire pit just off the main deck with a good supply of wood and small starter logs.

One bit of advice here... As with all remote areas of East Texas, if you have AT&T as your cell carrier, the service is not good to nonexistent (Personally, I find this a plus-- it's supposed to be a getaway!). But the WiFi was very reliable and the owners have provided a LAN line with free long distance if needed.

We have stayed at quite a few HomeAway properties, and this one was definitely "as advertised" (no photo trickery on their site), and among the best-maintained and managed properties that we have been to. We do plan on returning next year!
Creekside by George G. 11/23/2016
This is the second time we have stayed at Creekside for Crockett's Christmas on the Square. This property is so much better than advertised. Super clean, super organized, and the communication on directions, entry information, etc. was perfect. It is an absolutely wonderful place to get away from it all and have some seclusion. Watching the deer in the morning is a great treat for us city dwellers. You need to stay here if it fits your needs. You will not be disappointed.
Peaceful by Debra R. 11/23/2016
It was just as it was advertised!! Beautiful surroundings and home! Loved that it was very private and peaceful! Definitely worth the trip to stay and explore!
Quiet solitude by Family Trip 10/28/2016
We actually stayed at a different one of Mark and Brenda's properties on the other side of the lake since our group was a little larger than originally planned and Brenda graciously moved us, so I can't comment on this particular cabin. We stayed in Henry's Hideaway and everything was perfect! We especially enjoyed the use of their kayaks. The weather was great in October, very few bugs to deal with, and the house itself was so clean and comfortable, it was an awesome stay! The property listed above is apparently more secluded on several acres with lake access but is not right on the lake. Mark and Brenda run a tip top business, so I am sure that this house is comfortable and clean as well, you can't go wrong with Vacation Country Rentals!
Better than described! by Linda T. 09/14/2016
What a wonderful Labor Day weekend at Creekside! If you are looking for a delightful 2 BR house that's secluded and totally private, look no further. The comfortable home is definitely "high end" with granite, new appearing appliances, and upgraded bathrooms. It was sparkling clean and everything was in perfect working order. An important factor was that the owners live nearby if they were needed. They weren't but it was reassuring to know that they were available. They are amazing property owners who know how to do things right. Creekside was a quiet place to unwind for a few days. We look forward to returning to when we can. If you book this property, you will NOT be disappointed.

Creekside rental property! by Bradley E. 07/19/2016

Quaint, relaxing, nature lovers dream! by Sandra V. 05/11/2016
Second stay and it was just as wonderful as the first. We are going to make this our yearly girls get-a-way!
Quaint, cozy cottage by Anonymous 10/16/2015
This rental is a cozy, comfortable little cottage nestled in the Texas piney woods. Lots of nature surrounding it with neat trails and bridges. Heck, we even saw our first live Armadillo!! All in all it was an awesome stay and we would use it again if we come back to Crockett.

There were a couple of things we felt were misrepresented in the listing.

1. The rental is listed as 3 BR. It is 2 BR with a pull out couch.

2. The way we read the listing made it sound like trails led through the woods to the lake. There are a set of trails as mentioned above, but they lead to a dirt road that leads to the lake. The map graphic is a bit misleading as to its location as well.

That being said, the rental is still well worth the money spent and we had a WONDERFUL time.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review and comments. Unfortunately, Homeaway/VRBO require us to list beds as bedrooms in order for it to show a 6 person capacity. Your comments did make us take a closer look at the both web sites. We do have a 3D rendering of the interior layout of the home on both sites and we hoped that would help. Regardless, we will work on making it clearer on both sites that this home is a 2 bedroom with a pull out sofa. We did read though the site looking for verbiage regarding trails to the lake, we were unable to find anything suggesting that. There is a dirt road to the lake that is mentioned. Thanks for the heads up. We truly appreciate your feedback and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.
Bliss in the Woods by Adam R. 09/30/2015
This property is amazing! By far the best one I have stayed at on Homeaway. The cabin was even better than the description! From the pictures, I didn't quite understand how massive the property was. The inside of the cabin was very clean, and orderly. I loved all the instructions and directions. I would like to note how awesome it was to see so much wild life! When I first drove in I saw 4-5 White Tail Deer feeding! Amazing place. I have recommended this cabin to my family, and will be returning ASAP! Thank you Mark And Brenda!
Family getaway by Amanda J 09/21/2015
My family and I stayed here for the weekend and had a great relaxing time. Our one year son really enjoyed running all over the place outside. Everything was so clean and nice. We will definitely be back!
2nd stay this time with girlfriends by Marina 08/31/2015
...and we all loved it. I joked all week end that this is officially my vacation home 🙂 Highly recommend.
Creekside! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! by Russell M. 08/23/2015
We loved staying at Creekside! The cabin was VERY clean and well taken care of! We loved that it was secluded, peaceful and quiet! The view from the back deck was very nice. A great place if you want to get away from everything! We loved it and will definitely be back again!
Wonderful place to get away by Marina 07/22/2015
This was a great find for us, exactly what we were looking for. Secluded, quiet, and close enough to the water to enjoy some swimming. Property staff was very helpful and the property itself was immaculate. We will be coming back!!
CREEKSIDE was FANTASTIC by Jetsons 07/15/2015

Creekside by Patti 05/25/2015
The cabin and the property were great! So peaceful! The cabin had everything we needed to cook, clean and do laundry. We will definitely be back very soon.
Relaxing getaway in the country by Sid & Cathy (Baton Rouge La.) 04/07/2015
This was our second trip to Creekside, and it won't be our last. The house was very clean and everything worked just fine. The property was well-maintained, and we enjoyed strolling the grounds with our dog. The peace and quiet was what we were looking for, and Creekside did not disappoint.
Creekside is Amazing! by Sandra V. 02/05/2015
The cabin and the property were great! So peaceful and serene at all hours. The house had everything one would need to cook, clean etc. for a short or extended stay. I will definitely be back!
We arrived to a nice, clean cabin in the beautiful piney woods. by Steve 05/09/2014
We arrived to a nice, clean cabin in the beautiful piney woods. We enjoyed exploring the grounds with its creek, trees and ferns, relaxing in the hammock, and eating out on the deck. We would highly recommend this quiet, getaway place.
My husband and two kids stayed here for a spring break/anniversary getaway. by Melissa 03/09/2014
My husband and two kids stayed here for a spring break/anniversary getaway. The property is beautiful and peaceful. The home is very, very nice and clean. We have stayed in many different rental properties through the years and this one was by far the nicest. We enjoyed checking out the unique shops on the square in Crockett. We also drove out to Mission Tejas state park and did some hiking. We got some much needed family time and relaxation. Perfect getaway! We will be back!
After many years of coming to TX from Illinois and spending the week in a hotel, this year we rented the Creekside house. by Kathryn 03/01/2014
After many years of coming to TX from Illinois and spending the week in a hotel, this year we rented the Creekside house. What a great choice! The house and property were so comfortable and well appointed and the location was ideal for our needs. Can't imagine going back to a hotel. See you next year!
This is a lovely place to "get away". by John 02/28/2014
This is a lovely place to "get away". The only sound we could hear was the birds...very peaceful! This was our 2nd stay at Creekside and have stayed at one of the other properties also. Everything is clean, well stocked with kitchen needs, comfortable, and in beautiful wooded surroundings. It is almost exactly half way between Houston and Waco, which makes it a perfect place to meet with our friends of 30 years. We ate at Thompson's BBQ for Friday lunch, and it was fine. The owners were very personable. We "cooked in" the rest of weekend so have no other recommendations for dining this time. The Mercantile (antique store just off the square in town) is a lovely place to shop, and we have made a stop there on each of our visits to Crockett. The owner is delightful to talk to. We look forward to a return visit to Creekside.
My wife and I were joined by another couple from Plainview, and the house and property fit our needs perfectly. by Sid 10/03/2013
My wife and I were joined by another couple from Plainview, and the house and property fit our needs perfectly. The listing description was spot on, and the photos gave a good idea of what the property looked like. The house was very clean and inviting, and all of the appliances and mechanical systems worked without a flaw. The property is very well maintained, and all of the personal touches make this a very relaxing place to unwind. We loved it.
