Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms + Library, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Located just outside historic downtown Rusk and only minutes from the Texas State Railroad, Three Crows Lodge offers you a tranquil retreat from town and city. Life slows down to a yawn on the Lodge's 105 acres, featuring the Scott House and Potter's Shack. Here you and your family can rest without interruption. The lodge beckons whether you seek a family getaway, a romantic escape or merely solitude.

The Scott House stood in Rusk for over half a century before it was moved here in 1969. With 13 foot ceilings, windows that open as doors and original pine floors, the Scott House recalls a slower, simpler time. The master suite has an elegant king bed, wood burning fire place and private bath. In a second, more kid friendly bedroom, you will find a set of bunks and an additional twin bed. Located in the front of the home with a beautiful stained glass window is bedroom number three, furnished with a double bed and a spacious walk-in closet/playroom. Additional features included two family areas, a large dining room with two tables, a library/TV room with a futon sofa that sleeps two and a second bathroom with a tub/shower combo.

Separate from the main house, the Potter's Shack was once utilized as a potter's workshop. Now this quaint one bedroom, one bath cottage is perfect for couples, singles, small families or nannies. The cottage is furnished with a queen bed, convertible sofa, kitchenette with a bistro table, and an outside patio.

You come to the lodge to escape, yet just minutes away, you'll find Rusk square still frozen in a bygone era. Historic houses, restaurants, antique shops and the longest footbridge in the nation provide stress free ways to enjoy the day. In nearby Maydelle, you can also visit Farm House Pottery, home of award winning potter David Hendley and the Maydelle Winery.

Why Justin or Angela Rhodes chose Rusk

The property was purchased as an escape from the city life. We hope you will get as much enjoyment from our home as we do.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We enjoy sitting on the front porch swing in the evenings listening to the whippoorwills and gazing at the stars. Children are free to run around and play while connecting with the simple wonders of nature. Your time can be spent free from the distractions of home.

Great home in the beautiful woods of East Texas. Our deer lease is 1.4 miles from the home so we are so pleased to have this beautiful home to stay in. It's perfect for a relaxing weekend even if you aren't hunting. Beautiful property on a hill with Texas pines all around. It's really an great home to come home to! 5 stars for sure!
