We are open and have very clean homes.

The space
We are open and we 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.

The first thing you notice when driving up to The Gregory is the long porch with the big hanging ferns, in season. Enjoy relaxing on the porch swing while reading a book or enjoy a cup of coffee while watching the deer roam the neighborhood at the cafe table. Park in the large circular driveway or pull down the side of the home.

Head into the home and you'll fall in love with the open concept and large spacious rooms. The home comes with wifi and televisions in every bedroom. The living room T.V. offers Netflix. The master bedroom is spacious and has a large bath with a shower, corner whirlpool and corner double sink vanity. The second king bedroom is also very roomy. The third bedroom is a twin over full bunk designed for kids. Of course the kitchen and dining areas are great and there's a lengthy bar area where everyone can enjoy visiting.
Walk out the rear slider onto the back deck where the gas grill is located. If you prefer, go sit in the cabana, turn on the fan and enjoy the evening. If it's chilly or you simply want a fire, light one with the complimentary stack of firewood. Maybe roast some marshmallows or make smores. Either way you're sure to bond with family or friends.

Head up the road a short distance to the lake and your own private section of pier.
you have a 14'x20' dock to use as well as a fish cleaning station. One of the best parts has to be the kayaks. The cove is small and sheltered (though caution should be used) and perfect for the adventurous souls to explore. People exploring the cove may see birds, deer and beaver. It's very undeveloped and pristine.
Houston County Lake is a beautiful quiet lake nestled in the woods of East Texas. We consider it one of the areas best kept secrets and think you'll agree.

We have many antique shops and one of a kind restaurants. Do some internet searching and see what the area has to offer. Our homes are on Houston County Lake

In memory of Greg "The Big Kahuna" Philipon.

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.
