About Mark & Brenda Copus
Brenda and I were attracted to East Texas because of its natural beauty. The rolling hills, creeks and heavily forested areas reminded us of our native New England. When we first visited Houston County Lake we were hooked. We left the hustle and bustle of Spring (Houston) and settled for the small town charm and the prospects of building a Vacation Rental Business. We built our first home (The Gregory) in 2007. Of course my business had been a life time of owning my own construction/ remodeling company in Houston. We labored on all our homes and were able to build them for much less than market pricing. This gave us the opportunity to rent well built, clean and maintained homes for much less than most any others could. The Gregory was followed by Awesome View and eventually Creekside. All our homes are used solely for Vacation Rentals. I was originally born in England and was young when my folks emigrated to Canada and eventually the U.S. with 4 kids in tow. You may notice the English connection with my love of gardening, something I credit my late Mother for instilling in me. We work hard to provide a clean, comfortable and quality home at an affordable price, we think we do quite well at providing just that! We look forward to providing the same for you, your family and friends. As always, help is a phone call away.
Mark & Brenda Copus purchased this House in 2011
Why Mark & Brenda Copus chose Crockett
Creeksides land came up for sale and we simply fell in love with it. It was thickly overgrown but we managed to walk it and saw the possibilities the land offered. Being a builder has given me vision for a properties potential and I felt it would be a great homesite, People seem to agree. We attract motorcyclist that want to enjoy the twisty country roads with nice elevation changes as well as dirt bikers seeking of road experiences. We attract, birders, hikers, fisherman, and all sorts of people….perhaps most importantly, we attract families. As parents of 5 children we most enjoy hearing of families “re-bonding” and leaving with big smiles and tales of monster fish being caught. It’s these moments that make the job of providing homes for vacationing families a rewarding business.

Loved the place. You're really in the woods. There is a road behind the property that's perfect for walks. One way leads to the lake. If you like walking, you can walk to the lake. Just two vehicles passed us on our week stay.
Everything in the house is labeled, no guessing as to which switch turns on the lights or the fans, or where the pots and pans are, etc. Lots of information about the area is also available. The outside lighting is great. The owners really thought of everything.
Perfect in every way.
Creekside cabin was perfect in every way, we loved the forest, the lake was beautiful, the property was well kept, the house was awesome, we had a great time, absolutely zero complaints from the Walker's, thank you.
The distance to the lake
The actual lake is beautiful although not as close as we thought so you do have to walk or drive a little distance. Once you arrive to the lake, the view is serene and calm.
Thank you for your review. We did double check to make sure that the location of the home to the lake was clearly stated on our description. We did find that it was mentioned twice in the first 2 paragraphs. We are sorry you missed it. We do have other properties that are lake front or across the street for the next time you visit.
March visit to enjoy the dogwoods
John and I had a wonderful time visiting The Creekside cabin. The cabin has everything we could possibly need. Brenda and Mark were outstanding hosts. We will be back in the fall for another visit.
Peaceful & Unique
Our family really enjoyed our stay. It’s a very peaceful and unique property. The owners were extremely easy to communicate with.
Great secluded location!
Comfy house in secluded location, very close for us to what we were in grapeland for. Very clean. Suggest updating couch and recliner as not comfortable for sitting and watching tv...
White towel signs sort of offensive - solve problem by getting colored towels.
Beds nice and WiFi sufficient.
Appreciated labeling on drawers and light switches
Creekside is located close to the Davey Crockett National Forest. Of course, it's biggest draw are the spring fed waters of Houston County Lake (not lake Houston). Trophy Bass, Crappie and catfish can be caught off the banks, or bring a boat to hit your favorite fishing hole.
