If I could give 10 stars, I absolutely would! Gary is an amazing host, he was quick to answer when I had any question for him. The house was so clean & spacious & he provides everything you need. Our kids loved “helping” him gather firewood & the playroom was amazing! Cannot wait to go back and stay.


Pictures do not do the property justice - had everything we needed and were looking for in this area of Texas! Can really tell that love was put into every process of creating these places for others to enjoy! Thanks Gary!


This was my second time staying at one of Gary's properties. Perfect location, not far from civilization yet you still get the feeling that you're "getting away from it all". Gary keeps his place(s) clean and offers plenty of things to do on rainy days (billiards, ping pong, darts, etc.). I'm already planning my next stay there.


You will have a fabulous visit at this resort. The home is just the place needed to enjoy family fun. The backyard was great for our family bbq. My grandchildren loved the treasure chest of toys and the games and puzzles within the home. The table pool room and exercise room was enjoyed by family when they came for a bbq. For me, I just loved having the creature comforts of a home, such as family room, large kitchen, two bathrooms, plenty of beds, and washer and dryer. I appreciated Gary's kindness and quick responses. The home is as pictured and will live up to your expectations.


Gary was the best. The location and residence was exactly as described. The grounds was perfect for those with children as it was open and had lots of fun toys to play with. Fire pit was great for making hot dogs and of course smores. Plenty of room inside the house for hanging out but the game room with pool table and ping pong got plenty of uses as well. I will definitely recommend this to others I know. Thanks Gary.


Gary’s place in Pottsboro was just what we needed for a quick relaxation trip from the hectic Dallas scene. It was serene! The craftsmanship of the cottages are top notch and you can tell there’s a lot of pride in ownership. Easy to find off the highway and quick trip to beaches or parks at Lake Texoma.


Very, very nice place. Most notable is how spacious the place is (especially the A small pond is within walking distance from the house and yes, there are largemouth bass in there. We caught 10 in about an hour (around 9am). Gary is incredibly nice and concerns himself with you being comfortable and happy. We will be back.


This place was wonderful! Secluded, with plenty to do in the game room! The grill was great, and the beds are very comfy. Exceptionally clean - and an all around great place! Gary is great too. At one point I locked myself out of the house (embarrassing, I know), and Gary answered very quickly to help me get back in! Can't recommend this place enough!


Gary was the most amazing host! He was very helpful in offering suggestions for local activities and attractions. He accommodated our need for a later check- in and check- out time without hesitation. His home was definitely understated in its charm and functionality. We would have gladly stayed here for a whole week if we were able. We will definitely be back and cannot recommend Gary and his lovely place enough!


This house was super cool and Gary was an amazing host. He was very timely in his responses and was willing to help us however he could. It is a fabulous place to get away and has everything you would need. If you are going to be in the area I highly recommend staying here, you will not be sorry!!!


At Gary's place (The Rockhouse) one can expect Gary to meet you with a friendly smile. My friend and I were there on a photography trek to Hagerman National WIldlife Reserve. How convenient it was to be staying less than 5 miles to our photography destination. I only wish we could have stayed longer. The place was clean and we found the industrial touches and the corrugated metal ceilings inside the rockhouse to interesting. We loved the mix of the contemporary and cozy cabin style of this quiet place. I had to smile when seeing a chicken pecking outside the rockhouse when we were getting ready to leave the next morning. That brought back fond childhood memories. We had everything we needed and more.


We really enjoyed our weekend getaway at Gary's place! First off, Gary is a great host and made us feel very welcome and satisfied with everything. The house is quite big and brand new and the photos really don't do it justice. It was well stocked with all the necessities and we were even provided with lots of toys for our toddlers. Our party of five adults and two toddlers felt very comfortable. There was also a game room with a pool table, ping pong table and some work out equipment. The compound sits on a huge 15 acre lot that has a wooded area with a pond in the back - perfect for some hiking and camping. Not to mention that several awesome lake views/marinas are only minutes away by car. But the best part for us was the fire pit where we cooked some amazing food and looked up at the brightest stars - you wont get those kinds of stars anywhere else. Thanks Gary, we'll be back!


This was hands down the best decision I've made for an overnight stay somewhere. Convenience of location, cleanliness, very beautiful space and luxurious amenities. Not to mention the game room!! Everyone needs to spend a relaxing day away at Garys! Best host ever!


Amazing place to stay, a beautiful get away that is going to continue to build. Absolutely loved my stay and I️ highly recommended staying here even if it’s a bit of a drive from where you are. Drove about an hour and a half out to enjoy this lovely home. Best place I️ have stayed since I️ joined Airbnb, and worth every penny.


Rustic/Industrial interior, very relaxing atmosphere and extremely accommodating host. Very cool amenities and awesome playroom. Great place to visit!


Can't say enough about this property and the owner. We rented house to run Cross Timbers' race at Lake Texoma. Although only 3 of us, the house sleeps quite a few more. It was beautiful, immaculate, organized and accommodating. Gary thought of everything. We didn't have time to take advantage of the patio, fire pit and game room. We hope to come back for vacation and see how his other projects are going.


DO NOT PASS GO! Gary's place was more than I could have ever imagined. It was absolutely beautiful, quite, peaceful, relaxing, and great for family or just a few or even solo! It has everything you need for a quick trip or a long vacation! Great outdoors and in! There are even games and puzzles if you don't bring your own! Gary has thought of it all. His suggestions for local fare were spot on! Visit Napoli's Italian on 289. Seeking tranquility, a place near the lake, or even needing to take a small team for a business retreat...Gary's is the place for you! I will be back!


My family stayed at Gary’s house for a few days during spring break and really enjoyed it! His house is very close to Hagerman’s Wildlife Refuge as well as Emerson’s State Park on Lake Texoma where we spent most of our time. Gary’s home is centrally located for any Lake adventure! The home was very clean and had every amenity we needed. Thanks Gary for opening your home! We hope to come back soon!! P.S. If you are looking for a place to fish, We recommend Stop 4 at Hagerman’s. We caught more crappie then we knew what to do with. Also, The Tackle Box is a great bait shop and is close to Gary’s home.


Our family rented the 3 bedroom rock house for 2 nights. Gary's property is stunning; his homes are hand-crafted, sparkling clean, very nicely decorated, and furnished with everything you could possibly need. Gary is an outstanding host who has thought of everything and it shows in all the details. The location is ideal- in the country but minutes from everything. Our teens loved hanging out in the game room. The sunsets on the front porch were some of the most beautiful I've ever seen. My husband and I left with so many home design ideas! I cannot say enough positive things about our experience at Rock House Resorts. We will be back. Thank you for sharing your home with us Gary.


Gary's house was a great choice for our trip!! Not only was the house really nice and well sized for 8 of us, but Gary routinely went above and beyond. working with us and was a great all around host, helping us find things to do, and letting us borrow some of his supplies. Everything in the house worked well, and the extras: game room, firepit with firewood, grill with propane, fishing supplies and so much more made our trip well worth it. All eight of us would definitely recommend staying here for your trip!! Well worth the price!!


What a great place to unwind and have fun! We took a group of young people for a weekend full of games, laughter, and shenanigans! We rented both houses and the spaces were perfect for our group. Gary is an outstanding host and very prompt to respond. He is great to work with. The homes and property were very spacious, clean, and we all had a fantastic time! Highly recommend this property!
