Our History


In all the years our family camped, hiked and enjoyed the outdoors, we had never heard of Houston County Lake. In the early days of home computer technology, I would spend hours looking for places to go and enjoy in our R.V. with the family. 

It wasn't until 1998 when a friend bought property here that I found out Crockett, let alone Houston County Lake existed. I came up to visit and instantly fell in love with the area. The hills, trees and abundant water reminded me of my youth and growing up in the North East.

I spent a few hours with my friends, walked and talked and headed home. I took the small dirt road further down the cove to see what it offered when I came upon a for sale sign. The house for sale was a ramshackle old abode that most people felt was ready to fall down (which it was). Being a builder/remodeler in Spring and Houston I saw potential others didn't. I called the number on the for sale sign and told them I would buy it (after hearing the price). We arranged a meeting for that Saturday and we closed the deal that quick. I'll leave out the part with the names my wife called me in an effort to keep this page clean.

I always said if I moved to Crockett, which we did in 1999, I would bring business, not take it away. That's when we started EtexasRentals which morphed into Vacation country Rentals. Our biggest hurdle was, and always will be the fact that people think Houston County Lake is that lake near Houston (Lake Houston). Those that know our spring fed lake couldn't disagree more.
 Our desire is to educate people about the beauty of our lake, help spur economic benefit to our friends and neighbors and of course, get word out about our fine quality Vacation Rental homes.
 
We're actually doing very well, but we will always keep trying to grow. We don't want to see this lake become a Conroe or Lewisville and realize the size of the lake alone won't allow that. But it's pure heaven for those that find out about it, and we like to share and see families grow and bond together.
