  If you want to have affordable family fun on the lake, this is your home!  Awesome View offers amazing views (hence the name) from it's huge shaded decks and sunny docks. Sit under the cabana and enjoy the breeze from the lake and ceiling fans while relaxing with a tablet or book. You could go down to the huge dock that sets over the lake and play in the water with your own complimentary kayaks or floats you bring along with you. Houston County Lake is a spring fed lake that stays close to level in all but the direst of times. Maybe you'll bring your own boat (or invite a friend that has one :-)) for fishing or recreational boating, the main part of the lake is a short 3 minute ride and great for wake boarding etc.. 

   Fishing off the dock is a favorite with the kids as well as the parent that's okay with relaxing on your own dock. During the warmer months the Sunfish and Perch are plentiful and are easily caught by the youngest of anglers using corn or worms. If you like to eat what's caught you have your own private fish cleaning station.

   The young, and young at heart are sure to engage in a competitive basketball game on our "almost" full court (bring muscle rub for the older folks)  a short distance from Awesome View. While the kids are playing basketball you might take a short walk over to our small private park, "Tranquility Park" seems to be the name given it by our guests. Sit on one of the benches and watch the deer roam the neighborhood.  

   At the end of the day it's time to head back to the Awesome View and fire up the gas grill, which is connected to a large tank which means you won't run out of gas in the middle of a meal. As the evening creeps in sit on the deck or dock and witness some of the best sunsets! The westerly exposure makes the decks and docks an excellent vantage point to enjoy natures finest paintings. As it gets darker it's time to get the kids, light the fire and make S'mores around the outdoor pit.  The home comes with a complimentary stack of firewood. You'll surely enjoy the solitude of the lake and the impressive outside lighting the home offers at night time. You will love Awesome View and will want to return again and again like many of our guests!  Learn more about the lake on the link below.

Houston County Lake Crockett

 The outside of Awesome View is so great we sometimes forget about the inside, which is no less impressive. The home has three bedrooms. Lets start upstairs. The Master is a queen and has a private third level balcony. It's a favorite with many that like to sip coffee and look at the lake or read. All the bedrooms have 32" televisions with cable. The second queen faces the front of the home (street side) and has a balcony overlooking the front gardens. It should be noted, the roads are very lightly traveled, well maintained dirt country roads. The tar county road is less than 2/10'ths of a mile away and the state highway, which is also lightly traveled is two miles away. Hey, you're in the country! There is a shared Bathroom for the two upper bedrooms Both Bathrooms are tiled showers. 

   As you head down stairs you are in the living room which offers Netflix and a few other programs. The Dining Room sets to the side where you can speak to people in the Kitchen or Living Room. The D.R. has a larger table that will accommodate your group.  The Kitchen has all the utensils and appliances one needs to cook most meals. The counter tops are granite tile. There is lower Bathroom with granite vanity top and a tiled shower. Across from the Bathroom is the utility room with washer and dryer. The third Bedroom is a full over twin bunk. All bedrooms have 32" televisions with cable. 

   Awesome View is located on a very quiet area of the lake. There are some stumps that eliminate most  boat traffic. Fishing boats on trolling motors frequent the area leaving the noise of Jet skis and powerboats to the open areas, and yes, we love it this way. There is an easy channel access to the main lake that is a 3 minute ride. The home is equipped with complimentary kayaks (please wear life jackets).  

  Additional homes can be rented allowing larger groups to utilize the outside areas. Check with us before booking please. We are here to help and can be reached via our contact page information.

Creekside is the perfect property for those that want some room to spread out. As you appraoch through the gate and take your first corner on the driveway you'll see the house setting near the edge of a bluff. The home is neat, modern and well stocked for your stay.

Go in, unload and get ready to play. The property has several smaller trails that are perfect for supervised children to explore. Search for the spring that appears out the side of a hill and disappears again into the ground. See if the kids can find the conjoined tree. A tree connected by a big root where one side is dead and the other flourshing. Find the fern gardens and take note how much cooler it is with the springs feeding the ferns water.

One thing you'll notice is the bridge across the creek, which incidentally never runs dry. Cross the creek and you're on a dirt road that loops or takes you to the lake which is approx. 7/10th's of a mile away. Of course you'll want to continue exploring the property before venturing away.
Walk up the steep hill or go back a ways and take the easy'll come up near the deck that overlooks what people have named "Fern Gulley". The walk back to the house area lights up at night so sitting on either of the two large decks is a matter of choice.
There are almost two climate zones on this property. firstly you have the lower wet lands and then the drier upper woodlands where you'll actually find species of cacti. We have also been told by a number of birders that the viewing is quite impressive.

Creekside has room to store and turn a trailer on the "sound" coleche driveway.

As always, we are a call or email away and are more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

Lakeside is our largest and most spacious home. It sets on two lake lots, has a Gazebo and it's very own boat house. If you need more room Henry's is directly across the street and Pat's Place is right next door. Awesome View and the Gregory are both within easy walking distance.

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)

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.

Pats place has two Master Bedrooms, each with their own entrance to private areas attached to the main deck.
The Main deck has a large cover, a large gas grill, table, fans and lighting.
The main deck is high up in the tree canopy. It sets 50 or more feet above the lake, the lake is less than 100 feet away.
As you might imagine, this makes for incredible views as well as near constant breezes.
When people look over the edge of the main deck rail, it is not uncommon to see ones jaw drop in amazement. It is truly a sight to behold, simply massive amounts of decking and dock. It is the perfect place for a small wedding or corporate event.

The cantilevered deck that hangs over the side of the "cliff" always draws a lot of attention. So many places to hide away and enjoy a good book or a little "me" time.

As you head towards the normally cool spring fed waters of Houston county lake you'll walk past the fire-pit and it's stone patio.
Continue on and you'll see a large dock area, perfect for enjoying some sunbathing, or perhaps a game of cards, there are two boat slips, a fish cleaning station and night lights for fishing. Of course the covered area is a great place to sit while the kids kayak or enjoy a swim.

The outside is so awe inspiring, it is easy to forget the inside of Pats Place, it is certainly worthy of description.
As you walk in the front door there is a room with a card table and a sitting area for those times you want some "alone time".
Tied into that area are the washer and dryer, they can be closed off from the main home.
The home is very open and large in it's feel. The kitchen has granite counter tops with an island that is extended to add more dining or socializing room in addition to the bar top behind the sink peninsula. The built in refrigerator is complemented with a smaller island fridge for the kids drinks or adult beverages. Local catering is available upon request for those who want to take the night off from cooking.

The living area has two pullout couches as well as two chairs. The kitchen bar is situated so larger groups can all converse with people in the L.R.
As you go down the stairs to the game-room there are two pullout couches a Wii as well as game chairs for the kids.
There is a full bathroom connected as well as a beautiful outdoor deck with a picnic table.

All of the bedrooms have 32" flat screen televisions, ceiling fans and linens.

Bedroom 3 and 4 are queen beds with their own 32" televisions

The Gregory has 6 kayaks for your personal use. Take the kayaks out (please wear PFD's) and enjoy the hidden treasures the inlets offer, beavers, blue heron, egrets and a multitude of birds and wildlife. This area of the lake is quiet and far enough away from the power boats that often drown out the tranqui setting that makes Houston County Lake such a treasure.
Exploring the cove in the kayaks is a favorite with our guests.

After a busy day wearing the kids out swimming and playing at the lake or basketball court it's time to head home. The Gregory is a very attractive home with a great "flow". It has lerger room and plenty of space for you and your guests.

The Gregory had upgraded inside and outside lighting. A variety of moods can be set by dimming or alternating lighting options. The home has a washer/dryer and modern appliances. The kitchen is well stocked and should provide enough utensils for most any meal you can cook.

In memory of Greg "The Big Kahuna" Philipon.

The "Event Building" is a heated and cooled building with ceiling fans, loads of lighting options, crown mold and bead board. It is a little more than your typical barn, yet it maintains a sort of "elegant country theme", not stuffy but certainly not rustic.

The unit has outside (heated and cooled) his and her bathrooms, a large outside sink, exterior fans and loads of exterior lighting options.
It has a nice large firepit that comes with complimentary wood (one stack). There is a smoker and gas grill upon request.
