The Dockside Cottages – Here’s What We’re All About

“Coastal Cool Cottage Vibe!” 

We’re bringing a unique, relaxed, “Coastal Cottage Vibe” to East Texas.

We’ve set our sails high and are turning each of the cottages at The Dockside Cottages into the kind of storybook versions of east coast bed and breakfasts, one building at a time.

 “The Best Hospitality in East Texas”

We believe that “hospitality” isn’t just a word.  It’s a mentality and dedication by which we operate . . . simply put, it’s our way of being.

The Owner Proprietor’s  former Hotel and Restaurant Interior Design experience coupled with an additional 9+ years of National Conference Sales in the Hotel Industry along with her many years of Private Event Venue Management experience provide a foundation for offering guests the best hospitality in East Texas!

To that end, she has been honored to have gathered a team of dedicated, people-loving, hard-working, motivated individuals to help ensure that your visit to The Dockside Cottages and Boot Hill exceed your expectations!

Setting the benchmark for hospitality, we warmly welcome you to “Come Stay A While!”

“Clean Crisp Cozy Cottages”

The way we create Clean, Crisp, Cozy Cottages is to start with excellent maintenance standards.  Our Maintenance and Construction team have 57+ years of combined experience in commercial and residential construction and maintenance, from building hospitals, restaurants, residential housing, and even movie and film sets from the ground up, along with extensive remodeling experience too.

Then, factor in our “military style” cleaning regimens and protocols.  Couple that with the genuine desire to offer the best hospitality and accommodations in East Texas, and there you have it . . . “Clean, Crisp Cozy Cottages”.

“Generous Portions of  Hand-Crafted, Made-To-Order Fare”

We believe that guests visiting our restaurant and live music venue, Boot Hill, expect a good value (Generous Portions) of made from scratch (Hand-Crafted) one plate at a time (Made-To-Order) mouth watering fare.  So that’s what we offer!

Our chef is a mastermind of the kitchen!  His love of the attention to detail and flavor fullness of foods led him to bring our Boot Hill kitchen to life!

If you’ve never tried Chef’s Hand-Crafted, Made-To-Order Fare, you’re missing out!  The Tacos are to die for, the Brisket will make you want to double your order  and his Chicken Quesadillas are something to write home about!

Come see for yourself why we have the “King of Kitchens” in East Texas!

“Live Free Entertainment”

At Boot Hill, just 30 steps away from the cottages, we don’t believe in charging our guests to enjoy the Live Entertainment, so it’s always FREE – No Cover Charge!!

We’re just glad to have you drop by and relax on the big outdoor open and covered decks – where we usually have the Live Entertainment, weather permitting.  Grab a bite to eat too and plan to visit again!

“Honoring and Supporting Veterans, Active Military Personnel and First Responders”

Our God Given Rights and American Freedoms provide the foundation for the opportunity for Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness.  It is our heroic active and veteran Military Personnel, Police Officers and other First Responders that protect our rights and freedom and care for us when we are in need.  Without these heroes The Dockside Cottages and Boot Hill might not exist and because of them we have Life, Liberty and we do Pursue Happiness.  So, we choose to openly express our gratitude and support them through various efforts and actions.

Our primary fundraising efforts are geared toward assisting veterans from all branches of the military.  We’ve contributed all funds raised to either the Van Zandt County Veterans Memorial or Camp Hope which is PTSD Foundation of America’ s interim housing facility and programs helping combat veterans who suffer from combat related PTSD.  100% of all donation funds go to these organizations, and we contribute money to them as well, along with producing, organizing and promoting the fundraisers at no cost.

We also offer discounted (and often times free) meals to all Military Personnel, both active and veteran, Police Officers and other First Responders at Boot Hill during the Canton First Monday Trade Days.
