Property Details

Lakeside from the lake! Lakeside sets on a double lot and has plenty of shade and room. Well, lets start with outside pictures, plenty of them. Be patient, before you know it you'll be inside the home. The gardens are always colorful and well kept. Our full time crews make sure your stay is what it should be. The front (street side) of Lakeside. The gardens and shade along with the lake breezes help keep that cooler feel. The main section of the wrap around porch. The far end is a great spot to enjoy the sound of the water brook. What can you say to this view of the lower deck off the upper wrap around? How about beautiful? The huge wrap around porch is a great spot to enjoy family and friends. The view of the lake faces west so the sunsets are almost always incredible. Enjoy the complimentary kayaks and various watercraft. We insist kids wear lifejackets and laws are obeyed. A group of friends enjoying a fire. This could be the most popular spot. Cool in the day and balmy in the evenings! To best show the property without trees blocking the view we created this rendering. It is very close to the real setup. Just not near as nice. Walk the pathways and enjoy the different areas as the evening cools. The brook that runs beside the stone walkway circulates from the lake. The sound of the brook on the upper deck is entrancing. In season we work hard to keep our homes beautifully landscaped. There is color everywhere. It's what we do! I could fill pages with beautiful sunsets. Our lake homes all face west and we get the full enjoyment of these moments. Add plants and trees and this is very close to what you get with Lakeside. The lower deck, a place to unwind and enjoy the lake breezes on the shaded deck. The property layout of our homes. Many times people rent Henry's or Pats in addition to Lakeside. We allow a max. of 36 in Lakeside. The hall is available for larger groups. The fire pit and tables on the lower deck. A shot of Lakeside from the edge of the property. Fall may be the nicest time on the lake. We actually get some great foliage in November. A corner view showing some of the exterior rope lighting. Lakeside is a 4700 sq' home. This view shows the enormity of the home. Some more of our floral displays. At the end of the driveway is this bridge with lights and hanging plants. To the right is a beautiful stone walkway with a brook that runs down the hill to the lake. Open the door to the upper left bedroom and walk over the bridge into your own private garden. Complete with Gazebo. This area is full of colorful Azaleas that are prolific in March. The Azaleas in March are plentiful. Add the Redbuds and Dogwoods and you know it's spring in East Texas. A few of the walkways to various areas of the yard. We spend a lot of time and effort on maintaining our decks and properties. As we venture ahead you will see pictures of all these rooms. Coupled with the upper and lower renderings it should answer all your questions. The upstairs of Lakeside. These are accurate down to the furniture placement. Lets go in through the door and into the home. The front porch has a gas grill attached to a large propane tank, no running out! The table and fan make a great area for the grill meister in the group to prepare the meal. The doors to enter the home are located to the right. This room borders the kitchen and can be used for a multitude of purposes. The kitchen with its lighting options is always functional as well as visually appealing. Turn on some lights and you have a bright modern kitchen. Lakeside has two refrigerators and a large pantry area. The Living Room is adjacent to the kitchen. The house seems to be a unique combination of The kitchen to the left. Use our 3d renderings of the interior layout to help understand the home. The lone queen bedroom. All bedrooms have 32" flat screens and cable television. The lower bathroom off the kitchen and two bedrooms. This bath has a shower. The front left King Bedroom. All the bedrooms are quite large. The vary large Master Bedroom. All bedrooms have 32 The other end of the Master Bedroom. with T.V. and seating area. Lets go upstairs into the Gameroom. Yes, this is a very large area, perfect for the younger members of the group, or adults if you prefer. Behind me are two sets of bunks I will try and get on here. This is another angle of the Gameroom. Of course, we have to have the basics to keep those up here in popcorn and beverages. Facing the home this would be the upper right side bedroom. King with 32" television....and cable. This is the bathroom that sets upstairs in the middle area of the home. The front middle king bedroom As is the case with all the bedrooms, it's large. And yes, it has a 32" television, with cable. 🙂 This is the bedroom that attaches to the bridge. Front upper left side (facing the home). The bathroom that follows this can be sealed and made private for this room or shared. Did we mention T.V. an cable? This upper left bathroom can be sealed for the bridge bedrooms private use or opened for others to use. The bunk room with full bottoms and twin tops. This sets next to the Gameroom. Heck, they're pretty and need to be shown off! Some of our guests enjoying a float in the cool waters of our spring fed lake. A shot using the zoom. This is the far side of the lake taken early fall. Our guests enjoying the Kayaks. This group rented Pats Place as well as Lakeside. A simple but classy sunset! You'll love life at the lake. The decks, gardens home and lake assure a beautiful setting for your group to enjoy.

Property Description

Lakeside is the perfect location for that family gathering. The home will sleep as many as 22. It's huge decks, fire-pit, walkways. docks and exterior lighting make it a fantastic spot to spend some getaway time. The kayaks and boats are always a hit

Property Details

Lakeside is our largest and most spacious home. It sets on two lake lots, has a Gazebo and it's very own boat house.
The water side of the home has a massive wrap around porch that seems to invite you to sit and enjoy the lake sunsets and wildlife. Ceiling fans and abundant sitting areas make it the perfect spot to eat or play games.
The landscape is very attractive with a stone walkway leading to the lake and a stunning display of spring Azaleas and various flowering plants. A switch turns on the pump that recirculates lake water from the top of the stone walk. The water cascades down the river, under two small bridges back to the lake. This area abutts a quiet section of the wrap around porch making it the perfect place to enjoy the sound of the water while reading or enjoying coffee and family conversation.

The home faces west and the sunsets are phenomenal. The trees provide shade and the many fans cool the outside temperatures. Of course, a dip in the lake will help keep you cool off even more.

The 7 bedrooms and large upper game-room accommodate groups up to (but not exceeding) 22.
We have additional homes adjacent to Lakeside for larger groups. Please call to discuss the options (Brenda 281-468-4503 or Mark 713-826-6959)
The large kitchen can offers plentiful seating for your group. Local catering is available upon request for those days you don't feel like cooking.
In addition, the upstairs game-room has a mini fridge, sink and micro wave. It even has a separate entrance front and back of the home.

Lakeside has a gas grill connected to a large tank so running out of propane is not an issue.

Please look at our 3d floor plans for layout of the home. It does have a washer/dryer, two refrigerators, televisions in every bedroom with cable.

The home has wireless internet, with Netflix in the L.R. and Game room.

 All linens and towels are provided. 

The Kitchen offers a Kuerig (bring kcups) regular coffee maker (we offer coffee and filters) and a good assortment of utensils in the kitchen.  

 The outside decks, docks and covered porches are too numerous to list. Simply put, you'll have plenty of room.

 The covered boathouse offers a slip with plenty of tie offs for multiple boats, there are GFCI protected outlets for charging batteries or playing music at a moderate level.. A covered sitting area with lights, fans as well as a large attached dock is the perfect place for that cool lake swim or catching some rays.

 Utilize the provided kayaks and assorted boats and explore this hidden gem of a lake. We are located in a cove far enough away from the main lake where wave action and boat noise is almost non existent.


If you choose to explore town you will find an array of "one of a kind" shops and restaurants. Visit our sister site

for additional information about our beautiful lake.

We will gladly pass along any information we can to help make your stay a pleasant one, fell free to contact us with any questions

Guest Reviews

Gorgeous property that meets every need by Happychica 07/18/2016
We booked the Lakeside house for a ladies' retreat and had an absolute blast. The owners, Mark and Brenda, were very responsive and helpful when I had questions. The property is stunning. There is plenty of comfortable seating in the house, a huge kitchen with all the amenities you need, and the outside decks are beautiful. Sitting on the decks overlooking the lake in the mornings and evenings was wonderful. The fire pit and kayaks were also great touches, and we got good use out of both. I highly recommend this house for a family reunion, retreat, or trips with several families. We are hoping to return next year.
Wonderful Family Reunion/Birthday Weekend! by CC 07/13/2016
Lakeside was just as described. Beautiful lake property with stunning grounds and lake views. Multi-level decks provide ample space to spread out and enjoy conversation/games. It was on the 'Hot' side on our visit, so we mostly stayed under the large porch with ceiling fans and plenty of tables/seating for our large family. We enjoyed kayaking in the early morning and sunsets in the evenings. The managers were very attentive at making sure we were comfortable and everything we needed. Great trip!
This is the house to stay and play! by Ginger G 07/02/2016
7 bedrooms. Lots of bunk beds for the kids. A massive kitchen with enough room to move around in. The porches ... you gotta see 'em to believe 'em! Great place; you'll never want to leave!
Great reunion home by Laura R 06/29/2016
The property is beautiful and well-maintained. Nicely furnished. Loved having 2 refrigerators for such a large group. We had ten kids 13 and under and they enjoyed the kid-sized kayaks. They also liked the game room. The only negative was that the showers did not have the pressure I'm used to, but they got the job done. Also, there are a ton of steps gettig to the water, which was not a problem for most. Two people (in 70s) stayed inside the whole time.
Awesome Getaway!! by Sherrie T 06/18/2016
The Lakehouse and property exceeded our expectations for our family reunion. Not only the Lakehouse but the other three houses which were needed for the entire family. The property is beautifully maintained and provided the perfect atmosphere for us to relax and play in the lake. This spacious house was well stocked with any item we might have needed to use. We ended up bring more items (i.e. skillets, coffee pot, iron, etc.) than we needed to bring. The prime spot to find family was on the wrap around balcony and the decks overlooking the lake. The owners were very gracious, attentive and prompt with any request we may have had. We will defiantly be returning to this location for future events and have recommended it to many friends.
Awesome! Beautiful home and property! by Robin R 06/14/2016
Lakeside is an amazing place to relax in luxury. Our family and friends enjoyed their stay so much, we're planning on going back next year and may rent a second home! The staff were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommended this place to anyone!
Lakeside was nothing short of Breathtaking by Craig D 06/08/2016
The property is every bit of what is shown in the photos, if not more. From the house, the porch, the decks, and the lake itself, this was a great getaway for our entire family, which ranged in age from 6 to 76. I would highly recommend staying here or any of their other properties. They are all well taken care of, and you can tell they put their heart and soul into each one.
Perfect for our 4 generations family gathering by Phil P 06/02/2016
We rented in December and were so impressed we booked for Memorial Day weekend. There was something for all ages to enjoy. Can't think of anything that would make it better. We highly recommend it. We are going to book two house for our family get together this December.
Beautiful Property by Cindy R 05/07/2016
We were amazed at how beautiful this property was. All the pictures were how it actually looked,

not photos that have been doctored to look better.

Mark and Brenda were very easy to work with and were around to provide any needs we may have

had. (Although the home had many things provided we didn't need to bring along ourselves).

We all had an excellent time using the kayaks and paddle boat provided, and fishing from the


Wonderful place to enjoy with an extended family, business group, etc.

Thank you very much for allowing us to use your home, Mark and Brenda
Great Spring Break! by Kim H 03/22/2016
Our group of 5 families enjoyed this beautifully landscaped and maintained property for 4 days over Spring Break. The house was plenty big for 18 people, laid out well, and very clean. The kitchen was very nice and stocked well with dishes and cooking utensils.

We loved the porch across the back of the house which gave us a beautiful view of the lake and a nice area to eat, visit or just chill.

We all enjoyed the deck area on the water and were able to keep an eye on the kids as they had fun with the kayaks.

The owner and manager were friendly, helpful and nearby if we had any issues.

Would definitely recommend this property to others.

Looking forward to coming back soon.
Beautiful home with private dock and kayaks on a peaceful lake by Brian G 03/19/2016
We rented this huge house for a family get together for my son's birthday. It had so much space that everyone had room to have their own private area and tons of gathering places for family fun. We played board games in the huge dining area, kayaked around the lake, and spent hours around the fire bowl on one of the decks. The kids had hours of fun playing by the rock brook that led down to the lake. Everyone had so much fun that the only time we used the tv was to listen to pandora. The kitchen was stocked so well that I didn't miss any of my tools from home. The owners were attentive answering all of my questions quickly and going out of their way to make out stay memorable. We will definitely be returning to Lakeside.
Best place for group by Judy W 03/10/2016
The house is big and beautiful. We have the maximum number of people and still can dance inside the house. The rooms are clean and the appliances work perfectly. The owner thoughtfully prepared everything we needed for our vacation. We are so glad that we found this place for the group outing.

This is the first time we have had kayaks on the site. It is really good and you can go anytime you want. The lake is the perfect size for younger kids kayaking alone, and for nonathletic adults riding it on windy days. At night, we had a camp fire in the fire-pit, heating marshmallows. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Thank you Mark and Brenda!
We had a great weekend at Lakeside. by Maria A. 11/17/2014
We had a great weekend at Lakeside. Our party was 6 couples and everybody loved the house. We enjoyed cooking in the spacious kitchen and eating in the terrace overlooking at the lake. We went kayaking and had a very nice bonfire at night in the beautiful deck. The house is very big and modern and has a lot of amenities. The bedrooms and bathrooms are huge and neat. Mark and Brenda were very nice and helpful and we also liked the property manager who maintains the facility clean and beautiful. We definitely will book this house again!
Exceeded Expectations: Our group stayed at Lakeside and Henry's Hideaway. by April V. 09/19/2014
Exceeded Expectations: Our group stayed at Lakeside and Henry's Hideaway. Both houses were very nice, clean and well kept. Lakeside provided more than enough space for our large group. The views of the lake were amazing even from inside the house. Lakeside was thoughtfully designed and our guests were able to enjoy the sunrise/sunset even while preparing meals from the kitchen. Both homes had a lot of extra amenities to make our stay and experience feel like home. Everyone had a great time and hope to come back again. The owners were very accommodating and communicated with us promptly. The onsite property managers were very pleasant and were readily available to take care of our needs. What a relaxing weekend and no one wanted the weekend to end. AND for one weekend, those who suffered from allergies from our group were sneezing, coughing, and itchy/watery eyes FREE.

Our Annual Sibling Getaway was most enjoyable this year. by Sylvia H 08/29/2014
Our Annual Sibling Getaway was most enjoyable this year. The lake home was very spacious, clean, well maintained and supplied with most everything needed for our stay. We enjoyed the beautiful outdoor spaces where we grilled steaks, fried fish, and made ice cream. Everyone enjoyed the kayaks and fishing as well as playing washers. There was plenty of room indoors for board games, just relaxing, watching TV, and catching up with everyone and enjoying meals together. We would definitely love to stay there again. The owners were so very nice and accommodating.
We had a wonderful, fun, relaxing weekend with our four generations of our family at Lakeside this past weekend. by Randy B 08/16/2014
We had a wonderful, fun, relaxing weekend with our four generations of our family at Lakeside this past weekend. With most of the family coming from the Dallas area, it was an easy drive and convenient for all of us. We thought the photos of the property online were great and very inviting but these don't even do justice to the well appointed home with stellar lakefront view. The house was spotless and every detail has been considered. The owners have thoughtfully provided all the comforts for several age groups and our family ranged from 6 to 88 yrs with each person having something to do and enjoying every minute. We were a group of 15 and there was more than ample place for everyone to have adequate sleeping, bathroom/shower time, and move around in the kitchen at mealtime. Our favorite aspect was the 6 kayaks and paddle boat provided by the owners. We spent most of each day just floating on our blow-ups around the beautiful big pier/dock as we took turns in the kayaks, paddling around the scenic and very calm waters. We were outside until well past sunset, enjoying s'mores on the mid level deck area fire pit. The house has everything you could possibly need but we definitely brought our own beach towels to have on the dock. There is ample room for those that want to be out in the sun but plenty of shade for some relief from the heat. I can't say enough about how much we all enjoyed ourselves and how lovely this home is. From coffee on the large spacious upstairs deck to watching the Super Moon down on the pier, we lived every moment and will definitely be returning.
I booked this house for a church retreat and everybody loved it! by Guest 06/03/2014
I booked this house for a church retreat and everybody loved it! The house is beautiful with a lot of space and the deck area is huge. We had a great time using the kayaks and swimming out in the lake. The area is very quiet, and the owners were very helpful. Hope to be back next year!
This recently remodeled house in Crockett was beautiful and perfect for our specific occasion. by Shari 05/17/2014
This recently remodeled house in Crockett was beautiful and perfect for our specific occasion. The location of Crockett is perfect for get-away vacations. The massive house is even more impressive in person, with extra space everywhere, perfect for fun games/quality time with friends and family. The path down to the huge dock that overlooks Houston County Lake was amazing in itself. From a gazebo to a concrete path down to the lake surrounded by trees and plants, you're relaxed before you even get to the lake! Down at the lake, fun filled activities await. From kayaks to just laying out listening to music, you can do no wrong. The owners are very easy to work with, excellent at communicating, and willing to help with whatever you need. I would highly recommend staying at this house because 1) it's beautifully set up 2) the lake is a perfect size to lay out or kayak 3) why go to a beach when you can go to a lake and not have to worry about the nasty sand?? (especially Galveston... yuck) and lastly 4) the property is very well-maintained and you can tell that the owners have put alot of time into making this house as good as it can be. If that's not enough reasons for you to take a trip down to Crockett, Tx, then you aren't ready to relax in the perfect spot!!
