Pats Place sleeps up to 14 people (strict adherence to occupancy limits please)
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 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 one's jaw drop in amazement. It is truly a sight to behold, simply massive amounts of decking and dock areas.

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 with a tablet and a cup of coffee,.

As you head towards the normally cool spring fed waters of Houston county lake you'll walk past the fire-pit and it's paver patio.
Continue on and you'll see a large dock area with a cabana,the 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 cabana with fans is a great place to sit while the kids kayak and 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. The home is built of a fairly steep hill. When I built it I was told by others there's no way you can build on that lot. They were wrong, it was a project but it worked out to be a stunning display of decking. When you walk into Pat's the large upper area is the main area while you walk downstairs to the lower level. Kids seem to love the lower level.
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 (advanced notice required) for those who want to take the night off from cooking.

The living area has two 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 futons
There is a full bathroom connected as well as a beautiful outdoor deck with a picnic table.
What may be one of the nicest features of Pat's Place interior are the two Master Bedrooms, each with separate bathroom. As mentioned each bedroom has a 6' door to it's own deck area, as well as table and chairs.

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

Bedroom 5 is a double lower bunk with a twin top and 32" television.

The game-room can easily be its own semi private bedroom. It has its own bathroom as well as two futons that are best for children.

All of our homes have no carpeting. With cleanliness and allergy issues we decided it was healthier to tile and install wood style laminate throughout the homes.

Crockett, Texas, United States

Pat's Place is in a quiet neighborhood. The roads are quaint dirt roads that are maintained and easily travelled. In some ways it's like stepping back in time to simpler days.

I was born in England in 1957. Soon after my entry into the world my folks had me in tow, heading to Canada where work was more plentiful. My Dad worked in Northern Ontario for a few years in the Uranium mines (as an electrician). Him glowing at night kept my Mom awake so we headed to the warmth of Boston Massachusetts, where I spent most of my youth into my early Twenties.
I ended up heading to Texas after the blizzard of "78" wiped away my beach rental home. Shortly there after I met and married Brenda, we had five great kids.....that are now all grown, and a lot more fun!
We started the rental business after burning out in the building trades. I always enjoyed working construction, just not for other people :-). Sooo, I decided to build and keep our homes. I loved and still love seeing happy people enjoying family time. We enjoy seeing families at the lake enjoying our beautiful homes and enjoying the swimming, kayaking, floating and fishing.
We are attune to our Guests needs and we work hard to make your stay as enjoyable as we possibly can. It should be noted, we employ full time staff to keep our yards and homes in pristine condition. We have a high rate of return customers and we work hard to see that list grow.
