Vacation Rental Property
Nestled in the heart of the piney woods of East Texas lies one of the most beautiful lakes in Texas, Houston County Lake. Situated centrally to Dallas, Houston and Austin, it is still a jewel for trophy bass. Approximately 1500 acres of spring-fed reservoir located about 9 miles northwest of Crockett has bragging rights for abundant bass, crappie, bream and catfish for pier fishing or from a boat in any area of the lake. Our 21 acre resort with waterfront cafe, marina/store, and activity park specializes in catering to church groups, weddings, and reunions with families in the summertime; and winter Texans, retreats, corporate team meetings and RV clubs in the winter. The lodging and the RV sites are available for nightly, weekly or monthly rental. The clubhouse is an air conditioned building 44X76' with two kitchen areas and restrooms. Two separate meetings, reunions, or receptions can be held simultaneously with privacy. In addition, there is an open air pavilion 20X50' with water frontage available for functions. In-house catering can be arranged or private groups can be accommodated in the cafe.
We offer pool and lake swimming, rentals for paddleboats, kayak, canoe, fishing boat, and miniature golf. Also available are volleyball, basketball, horseshoes, and playground equipment.
