***** Henry's has a water view as well as its own dock and kayaks where swimming is great!!.******
We are open and we have have instituted additional and quite often duplicate cleaning and disinfecting practices. This will assure that our guests enter a home that is as clean and disinfected as possible. We have always been confident and proud of our cleaning staff and believe our reviews attest to our already high standards of cleanliness.
At this time we feel you, your family and friends can visit our homes and easily limit contact to those in your party, providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all.
Air BnB and VRBO users can contact us for a list of all 6 homes they Sleep from 6-22 All Homes except Creekside are within easy walking distance of each other.
This 4 bedroom homes has all the amenities and comforts of a fine home. As is the case with all our houses there is no carpet to trap allergens. All our floors are tile and laminate (wood) flooring.
The Counters in Henry's are granite, in the baths as well as the kitchen. The home has two full bathtubs with showers. Henry's is a lakeview home.
Henrys has an assortment of beautiful decks to spread out on. Whether you choose to grill, soak up some sun or eat some food you just prepared on the grill, you'll love the colorful yard and plantings. The upper deck measures 14'x24' with a lower 12'x12' area and a firepit area you see in the photos.
The front porch is a great spot to sit and enjoy your view of the lake. If it's warm outside, turn on the fans as you relax and enjoy the sunset and beautiful view.
While Henry's doesn't set directly on the water it comes with a walkway down to it's own private section of pier. It's a great place to swim, boat or fish. There's a fish cleaning station if you feel inclined to cook your catch! The walkway and all the decks are lighted which creates a beautiful look and makes it easy to traverse at night. Houston County Lake (not to be confused with Lake Houston) is a spring fed lake that normally stays cool and close to a constant level in all but the driest of years.
After a day playing on the water and enjoying the complementary kayaks it's time to head up to the home, maybe get a fire going, roast some marshmallows and make smores. It's a great place to bond with family and friends while unwinding.
The homes interior is very nice, open and clean. The living room has two full sized couches as well as an easy chair.
The two bath home has tiled bath/shower units with tiled floors. As is the case with all our homes they are full time rentals and have no carpet in them. You never have to feel as though you are invading someones private home they rent out when they're not using it. The kids, and young at heart may enjoy a game of basketball on our mini full court.
Crockett and the surrounding area is hilly and heavily wooded. There are a multitude of State Parks, National forest and small towns with one of a kind restaurants. We will be happy to assist you in planning your trip.

The place was spotless upon arrival. Wonderful supply of kitchenware and utensils. Grill and rest of appliances worked great! Really appreciate them making the stay hassle-free!
We were a group of 10 people and the house was perfect for us, we had a great time. The house was clean and very well though, has a nice back yard and the access to the lake is good, the kayaks are a bit hard to use but the deck is great, overall a great place to go.
Amazing vacation spot tucked away in Crockett, TX! Our group - which included 4 small babies - all loved this home and the area so much. The house had all the amenities we could have needed to have a wonderful time and the hosts were readily available to answer questions or help us find things. The house was also in tip top shape with regard to cleanliness and landscaping.
We thoroughly enjoyed taking morning and evening walks around the well manicured property, and sitting in the front yard while our kids played. We were able to see morning fog lifting beautifully from the lake,
hummingbirds swarming about, and countless butterflies amongst the yard. It was so peaceful! We hope to return again!
Awesome place for a vacation! Henry's was not directly on the lake but had it's own private dock and kayaks which we took advantage of. We loved having a back yard and fire pit for the kids to play in and do smores in the evening. The house was well stocked and very clean. And we appreciated the communication before the trip, during the trip, and even the helpful items posted to the fridge. We hope to be back for another lake weekend at Henrys!
We had such a great time at this lake house. It was perfect and exactly as listed. Everything , including the outdoor area was meticulously clean. Not a leaf or blade of grass was out of place. But yet it didn't have a "stuffy" feel to it so we were able to relax and have a great time. Highly recommend this place!
Owner Response: Thank you for the kind words and nice review!
We have loved staying here again! So much fun and so beautiful. The host are wonderful! Can't wait to come again.
Thank you! The B & D families.

Mark and Brenda are very responsive and hospitable. The place is in excellent shape with a wonderful backyard patio. Two minute walk to a wonderful pier with awesome views of the lake.
Thank you for a wonderful experience.
Owner response: Thank You so much Cody. You folks were a pleasure to host We hope to see you again, maybe next year with the rest of the group.
We had a wonderful girls trip & plan to return next year! The host were amazing.
This is our 4th trip to Vacation Country Rentals. We brought our kids and grandkids on this trip so they could see our Happy Places (Rented Henry's & Awesome View). They got to swim, Kayak, fish and have smores by the campfire! This place is exactly like its name "Awesome" We will continue to have this place as our escape and OUR HAPPY PLACE!
Jo & Sharon W.

Wonderful atmosphere, great amenities, beautiful lake, gracious host, well maintained grounds and tons of fun!!
We will be back! These places are worth your time and money, no doubt!
Keri A & families
My family and I were in Texas for a family reunion and spent four terrific days playing dominoes, poker, in the lake, basketball, eating - all in and around the space provided by Mark & Brenda. Definitely would come back.
We had a lovely time at this property. was a last minute plan.. confirmed immediately. Everything here was well organized and clean. we had a great time.
The house and property was very clean and well-kept. It was a great weekend-getaway.
Dear Mark & Brenda, Our family was extremely satisfied with our stay at the Henry's House! We love the thoughtfulness and care that was put into the home. The lake is a great experience and having the kayaks and private dock really makes it even better. Our family will be returning as this is one of the most relaxing trips we have taken. Thank you all for your wonderful hospitality.
The House was so clean and nice. My family and I really enjoyed it.
very clean cabin , gorgeous view when you go kayaking, me and my family had so much fun!
Google Review: What a fantastic stay at one of Texas's hidden gems! Great property, plenty of activities that keep you out of the house and active! The family loved it, and, most importantly, the kids loved it, especially the 67 steps to the lake and the private dock and kayaks!
Owner Response: Thank you for the kind words Nathan, we really appreciate it. We're truly happy you had a great time and hope to see you again in the future. Cheers!!
Guest Book: What a wonderful spring break we had! This was the perfect spot to enjoy the lake and celebrate my fathers birthday. The kids enjoyed kayaking ALL DAY LONG! The weather was beautiful, the house was comfortable and perfectly stocked. The firepit was perfect for smores and ghost stories after a day on the lake. We can't wait to return. Thank You
The N Family.
Once again we had an "Awesome" visit! Thank you for understanding that with love of a family comes laughter in very loud ways at times!! Thank you for your patience, kindness and your fantastic homer we stayed in! See you in June!
Hard to imagine a more welcoming place to spend your time with friends and family than Vacation Country Rentals! After our first time a few years ago we really fell in love with the place and became regular guests. Everything is perfect here - lovely spotless very well-equipped houses (I believe we stayed in each one :-), comfortable beds, relaxing atmosphere, cute backyards or cozy decks with a nice view, if you prefer to stay on the lake. Vacation Country Rentals is suitable for recreation in any season and weather. Last time even two days heavy rain couldn't ruin our stay. In our hearts, Mark and Brenda have won the title of Superhosts forever.
Wow, what an awesome and much appreciated review!
What we do here wouldn’t be possible without the guests we’re so fortunate to attract. It makes our job not only easy, but enjoyable.
Thanks so much. Until next time!!’
“Thanks so much - we had a great Halloween- much better than we expected this crazy year!!! Everything was clean and spacious, kids had a blast :)”
Vacation Country Rentals is our favorite getaway destination. The views are beautiful. The grounds are breathtaking. The homes are clean and have lots of amenities. There are so many things children of all ages can participate in. Kayaks are available. The staff is readily available for anything you might need. We have stayed four times in three different homes and looking forward to the next house we rent. Do yourself a favor and book at Vacation Country Rentals.
We stayed in Henry’s Hideaway. The house was so cute and extremely clean. The outside appearance and lawn was perfectly manicured and attentively taken care of. We enjoyed watching deer and squirrels from the back deck. You can even walk down to the dock on the lake and fish or use their complimentary kayaks. This place was absolutely beautiful and peaceful, inside and outside. They really pay attention to all the details and really make it extraordinary. The owners are so kind and hospitable and some if the nicest people we have ever met. This place is an absolute gem. We fell in love with this place and have already booked our next stay!
Hi Taylor & Amber, we're flattered and appreciative of such a nice review. I see we're going to see you again soon in Awesome View! That's great, we look forward to it!!!!
We had a great Time!
The lake was awesome!
We didn't want to leave!

Thanks for a great vacation Alex C and family.
We had a great time hanging out at the lake with our family. It is a really nice property. We swam, kayaked, fished, cooked out, played basketball, made s’mores, watched movies, and sat around the campfire. Definitely recommend this property.
We had a great time at this wonderful lake house! We made incredible memories here-swimming at the dock, kayaking, fishing, grilling out.
Thank You, The Schneider & Yost families.
Kayaks, fishing, fire pit.... very but really very clean house We ever rented . Best customer service I’ve ever seen. The owners reply email immediately with any concerns. This may be the perfect "getaway"!!! Good place to come if you have a passel of kids!! We ( our family) highly recommend!! We will definitely return to this place again and not once !
This was a last minute booking am so happy that I found this place so close to Houston. All of us had such a great time here. Everything was perfect. Kids spent hours playing , swimming and kayaking in the lake. We will definitely return!
Owner Response" Awesome! So great to hear.
Mark and Brenda were AMAZING host to my nephew, I and our friends. The house was outta this world...
Everything was great at the lake. The house and grounds were very well maintained and there was easy communication with the hosts. Would recommend!
Our stay was wonderful! The property was immaculate and had all the items anyone would need on a vacation. The property itself was beautiful and it was the perfect weekend getaway for our family. The owner’s hospitality was amazing and we will definitely be back!
Owner response: Thank you and we’re glad you had a good time at Henry’s. We look forward to seeing the kids in the water again. What fun they had!!
We stayed Easter weekend at Henry's Hideaway. It was just the getaway my family needed during this crazy time. Three of my family have been let go from their jobs due to the pandemic, and two of us work in the medical field. We all needed to check out from our new normal. The house was perfect! It was clean, had every need met, beautiful scenery, nicely organized kitchen. We made use of the kayaks, decks, and the fire pit. We enjoyed walking the grounds, and bird watching as well. We stayed in Creekside a couple of years ago, and it was a phenomenal experience as well. Vacation Country Rentals are our go to for future family vacations. Book a stay, and you will not be disappointed!
Peacefulness. Terrific Owners/Care takers! Family friendly
We rented Lakeside, Pat's Place and Henry's Hideaway for a family reunion with about 30 people. The houses were clean and spacious with everything you could need. The back deck overlooking the lake was a great place to gather and spend the day. One person brought a fishing boat and was able to take the kids out fishing. It was a great weekend and we plan to come back. I highly recommend Vacation Country Rentals for a great getaway spot. It was relaxing, comfortable and beautiful!
We've rented two houses Henry's hideaway and awesome view, they both are awesome. They have everything you need in the kitchens and in the rooms. The space in the house is great. The decks are spectacular, fire pit place is cozy. Everything everywhere is clean and well maintained. Lights, pictures on the trees, etc, all done with love. My daughter and my hubby love kayaking on the lake. We are staying at these rentals for many years already, and we are definitely coming back!
Thoughtful amenities · Spacious rooms
Thank you Julia. We always enjoy having you folks and look forward to you all visiting every year.
Cold weather, s’mores by the fire and a trip to our property in Grapeland! All loads of fun. Many thanks.
Our very first family reunion for 13 adults and 14 children ages 1 - 15. We stayed in Lakeside and Henry's Hideaway. Both properties are well cared for and very nice to stay in. The homes and furnishings are up to date and clean. It was great having Kayaks and a paddle-boat to access the lake. We were originally concerned that there wasn't a shore for the little's to play on. We were pleasantly surprised that as you enter the water from the house, it is shallow enough for all the little's to play in and feel safe. The water was almost too warm. We all went home happy and glad we chose to spend our reunion here.
The owners were very nice, the home was perfect. Beautiful place to relax.
A beautiful house surrounded by tall pines and oaks on a peaceful lake. The entire property was immaculately groomed. The perfect place for our family get together. The back decks were great places to gather and visit.
We recently stayed in the Lakeside and Henry's Hideaway. By far these two houses were the best houses that we have ever rented. In great shape, well maintained and had a nice supply in the kitchen to work with. Mark and Brenda are easy to reach and are helpful if or when you need them.
Thank you Cinda, we're glad you enjoyed the homes. We hope to see you all return! Thanks for the kind words.
Best weekend moms getaway. Owners are fantastic and very friendly. They maintain all the properties very well. Very peaceful enjoyed the kayaks, fishing and the fire pit. Will definitely be returning. Thank you for your hospitality.
Absolutely fantastic place to stay for a weekend getaway. Mark and Brenda are some of the best hosts I've ever had the pleasure to come across.
Response from the owner:
Gosh, thanks so much Hasan, we're blushing.
You folks were fantastic and made our job not only easy, but enjoyable.
We look forward to seeing you again!
Thanks so much.
Our family stayed here for 5 days for a quiet peaceful vacation and that’s exactly what we got. Home is kept in immaculate condition. The private dock and kayaks were wonderful to keep cool on these hot summer days. We will definitely be back!
This place is wonderful! The attention to detail by the property managers is amazing!
Kayaks, fishing, basketball, fire pit.... clean homes, lots of room. This may be the perfect "getaway"!!! Good place to come if you have a passel of kids!! I highly recommend!!
We loved it! Fantastic location and no noisy boats, just lots of laughter. The stairs were so much fun for the kids and the basketball court is superb.
We've gone 3 years in a row and looking forward to this summer being the 4th. Each house we have stayed in has ample space and great amenities. The couple who own the place are easy going and very helpful. They're one of the reasons we come back, can't beat the experience, from booking, to evening fires, kayaking and fishing. We make it our stay-cation destination lol. Only a couple hours drive from Dallas and definitely worth it.
My wife and I had a small wedding/ family retreat here and it was more than we could have imagined. Brenda and Mark were helpful and willing to work with us to make this weekend unforgettable. All of our family members commented on how peaceful and relaxing the rental houses were.
It is the perfect place to gather family and friends because it has spacious common areas on the decks and enough privacy within the houses. It is also very affordable considering the amount of people per house. We hope to come back soon!
3 homes were rented. Lakeside, Pat's Place and Henry's
This was the second year for the Boggs Family at Vacation Country Rental. With just our kids and grandkids, we have over 20 and this year my sister's family joined us so in addition to Lakeside, we added Henry's Hideaway as well. Everyone had a blast and you could not ask for better accommodations. We did have a couple of hermits and by having Henry's, they were able to enjoy there seclusion. The rest of us had a ball fishing, boating and just enjoying the beautiful surroundings. Sunday night, we utilized the firepit for S'mores with my first experience with square marshmallows. Fishing was a bit slow but the kids managed to catch enough sun fish to keep them interested and my sister had 2, "gottaway" stories. I highly recommend this place to anyone, especially if you have a large family like ours.
Thanks for the great review Jim, you are always a great group and we enjoy seeing you all having fun. Many thanks for returning.
We will have to see what we can do about those fish!
With 35 family members staying in three properties, this was perfect in every way. Those of us staying here had a short walk to bed down for the night and enjoy some QUIET TIME! Very comfortable beds and all the comforts of your own home.
I have been staying at Henry's Hideaway since early September. The house is extremely nice, clean, well maintained, and very nicely furnished. The location is great, I have a view of the lake, and still have my privacy. The owners, Mark and Brenda, and the on-site managers, Barbara and Herb, provide great customer service and are very friendly, and accomodating, and truly good people I would highly recommend staying there, or at any of the properties that are part of Vacation Rentals.
We stayed with close friends for our 25 year class reunion. The lake is right out the front door. There is a beautiful pier perfect for swimming or camping. House is fully equipped for a relaxing stay. Back deck was great for grilling. Owners are very nice and furnish more than enough towels and kitchen supplies. When In Crockett again, we will definitely be staying with them.
The home exceeded my expectations! The home was cozy, very clean and the yard was well manicured!! Just a few steps away from the lake. Such a perfect getaway!! Owners were great to work with!!!
Henry's Hideaway is the best place to visit on earth. The house is awesome! The layout and finish of the home is tops. Enough room for the family and friends and large kitchen to feed them all.
The amenities of the facility are high quality and accessible.
My family had a very good time and used almost all of the available equipment and sites.
Excellent! We will definitely return!
I was skeptical at first, but once we arrived just the outside view of the property was awesome. Owners welcomed us and we're wonderful and very helpful. I also rented two more properties the same weekend and had the same result. We can't wait to go back and enjoy the wonderful accomodations and repeating the relaxing time we had....
from $300 / night
