Located in our very safe, welcoming and peaceful little town of Howardwick, welcome to the Hideout at Old Saints Roost! A charming "barndominium" style retreat tucked away in a quiet, private, beautiful natural setting overlooking the Salt Fork of the Red River valley, and just a short walk from Greenbelt Lake.
Perfect for families, couples and those wanting to hide away from the world and re-connect with nature in a pristine Texas prairie setting.
Come enjoy the Hideout!

The space
From the outside, it's just a little red barn situated in a pristine Texas prairie setting, with beautiful views of the river valley and Greenbelt Lake. On the inside, the Hideout at Old Saints Roost is designed to WOW you with its unique Texas country charm and style, its modern amenities and its comfy, cozy wide open welcoming living space.

Enjoy a long soak in the vintage claw-foot bathtub as you immerse yourself in a good book with a glass of wine close at hand. Curl up and sleep like a baby in the stunning Texas-style king size bed. Cook up your own fabulous meals in the fully equipped open kitchen. Netflix and chill in the quiet comfort of the cozy living area. Take in the views, the wildlife, the spectacular sunsets and the incredible starry night skies from the spacious patio. And take a walk down to the lake to fish, swim, birdwatch or take a relaxing stroll along the shore.

Speaking of wildlife: be on the lookout for deer, bobcats, porcupines, real Texas cattle (from a nearby ranch), lizards and horny toads, and more beautiful birds than you can possibly count! Including eagles, ospreys, hawks, great blue herons, pelicans, sand hill cranes and so many more! The animals far outnumber the people around the Hideout, so the wildlife spotting out here is fantastic! And say a sweet goodnight to the coyotes as they sing you to sleep at night.

- First morning's breakfast on us! Fresh eggs, sausage and orange juice are restocked with each new guest and are in the fridge waiting for you.

Where you’ll be

Howardwick, Texas, United States

The little town of Howardwick (pop. 424) is located on the northern shores of Greenbelt Lake in the Texas Panhandle, and sits as a quiet, peaceful and welcome respite from all the hubbub and crazy goings-on of the outside world.

Started as a mobile home resort community back in the 1960's, our little town never really grew like it's eager developers back then wished it would've - in fact, today Howardwick doesn't attract the attention and interest from folks that we think it deserves - but that's actually turned out to be a really, really good thing.

Today those of us who live in Howardwick consider the lack of traffic, the absence of noise, the peaceful nights, and our laid-back way of country living a true blessing. As does the wildlife! Howardwick and Greenbelt Lake are home to some of the Panhandle's most remarkable animals, from mule and whitetail deer, to bald eagles, bobcats, opossums, great-horned owls, porcupines and so many more.
And then, those stars at night...

Hey y'all! We're Nik and Dusty Green, executive producers and hosts of the PBS travel show "Two for the Road," and founders of the Saints Roost Expedition Company. And we're thrilled to share our precious little corner of Texas with you! We were both born and raised here in the Panhandle, and have lived here in the little town of Howardwick by Greenbelt Lake for several years now. And when we're not out traveling the world for the show, this is where we come back to get away from it all, to get back to nature, and to get back to center. We love it here! And we sure think you will too. It's a really small town of course so you may very well see us around, but we know how most travelers value their privacy - so we won't bug you once you get here. Unless of course you need anything, you'd like to book one of our tours, or would just like to chat for a spell. We'd love to meet you, and we'll be available anytime! Cheers y'all! And welcome to Saints Roost Country!
