About Kristi Arnold

Boating snob who's inboard ski boats have not been on a lake in over 15 years who grew up skiing on rivers and canals in South Texas and Florida.

Kristi Arnold purchased this house in 2012

Why Kristi Arnold chose Granbury

When moving to DFW in 1995 took me just one week to discover the Brazos River both the Tin Top and Kimball Bend sections. After continued low water situations associated with Kimball Bend and Lake Whitney purchased first home along Tin Top section over 10 years ago. Just purchased this home as it is truly located one one of the most pristine sections of river in very private setting.

What makes this house unique

Put on wake board or skis and go from the dock tell tell driver to go left or right for miles of glass smooth water.

Amazing private large shaded lot over looking the Brazos River when not out on boat sit back and watch some of the best wake boarders around do flips in front of home.

Close enough to town to go into work if you have to over longer stay.

Perfect for our getaway!

  • 4 of 5

The house was great! TONS of activities. Sand volleyball with balls provided, washer pit. There was a horseshoe pit but we couldn't find the horseshoes. Fire pit and dock were awesome. There were even fishing poles if you forget yours. Kitchen was completely stocked with silverware, plates, cups. I was glad we brought our own dishpacks for the dishwasher so we didn't have to wash by hand. There were plenty of towels, although a few guests in the new houses said theirs smelled soured, like they were put away still slightly damp or something, but they were clean. I did wish that housekeeping would have set out towels on the beds so we'd know which ones were freshly laundered. It was so relaxing, and the owner was quick to respond to concerns. We had a great time in the paddleboat and kayak. Oh, and we enjoyed the hot tub -- it was nice and new -- not the scary old kind. The outdoor grilling area was so cool, too! We put it on a music station and had a blast! Our favorite activity was by far the ping pong table, although my husband was caught out on the trampoline twice! We had no kids with us, but this would be tons of fun with or without kiddos!! Already planning a trip back in the fall!

Roomy, Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 6-8 men from our church for a 4 day getaway and this property worked very well. Bedrooms and bathrooms layout accommodated our groups' variety of sleeping and activity schedules very well. The website does a good job of describing the layout and amenities. Our favorite feature of all was the fire pit, which we utilized every evening before dinner to enjoy the sunset and after dinner late into the night for wide ranging conversations. With the drought, the river is low and the owner made that clear in pre-resevation communication. We were there in November and were not expecting water recreation. We used the kitchen for every meal and it is well laid out and equipped. Some of our group did a day trip to the Fossil Rim Wildlife Park and thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend this property. It would provide excellent value, especially to several families with children because of the sleeping capacity.

Serene and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Having our first mini family reunion after losing our daughter was special and fun; being somewhere other than home for my husband's biggie birthday- and also my grandson's birthday ,. The house was laid out perfectly for interaction. Card games, T.V., and a little fuze ball plus a large kitchen, perfectly located and open- with 2 refrigerators-- a great surprise. The bedrooms were quiet, private, and comfortable with nice new features. 3 bathrooms on the first floor were great too for anyone napping or dressing.

With the Aggie and Cowboy games, Ranger game ,and golf -- I was hoping to use the outside kitchen both days for snacks and food and comraderie, while some were kayaking, fishing, and playing horseshoes. Looking forward to the big flat screen outside but that T.V. was not working.

I ran out of propane in the middle of cooking and even though we received the charcoal and a lighter for the lovely new grill, there was no charcoal lighter so I finished the burgers on the kitchen range top. (With grandchildren leaving for jobs, Houston, and Midland we had to expedite the meal and not drive to the store.) There was nothing that was going to make me unhappy those days. Loving nature and the beauty of the river and the love and laughter of my family was the best. The house was perched just perfectly to enjoy it all.. Special memories.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family vacation. The out door area was beyond belief. Our entire family spent hours together outside. We stocked the out door beverage cooler on arrival and no one had to leave the fun to go inside for a drink. Our grown boys took the kayak out every morning and evening. They even had their own fishing competition going. We swam and floated in tubes that we had brought. Everyone had fun. Never went out to eat because it was just to easy to cook at home.

Felt like coming home...

  • 5 of 5

My father owned this house for many years and put his heart and soul into renovating it. It was his home away from home, his little piece of heaven, and the place where our family gathered as often as possible. After he passed away, David and Kathy purchased it for use as a rental property, which thrilled us because we would still be able to enjoy it and all that it represents to our family. The changes they made to the interior and the addition of the outdoor entertainment areas only made it better! Dad loved to relax and watch the colorful sunsets and the blue herons from the back porch - both were beautiful during our visit! The adults especially loved the cabana, grill, and outdoor sound system. The kids loved all of the activities and equipment - kayaking, swimming, horseshoes, ping pong, trampoline, etc. We look forward to returning next year!

Unknown gem

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I were very impressed with the home and the property in general. We were shocked that it was only 90 minutes from us in North Dallas. Over the course of 3 days we were constantly using the volleyball court (incredibly well lighted), trampoline, cabana, the access to the river, foosball table, ping pong table, hammock, and every bed in the house! We loved that the house has chairs of all types in every corner of the property (both inside and outside) so we didn't have to move things around in order to sit together for meals. Wish the outdoor shower had hot water and the hot tub wasn't functioning at the time, but we gladly look forward to coming back for those another weekend! Had a small breaker issue and had a light go out in one bedroom for a few minutes, but the 24-hr on call line helped quickly and accurately and we were good within five minutes of the call - great unexpected customer service there! Bathrooms were all clean and in great working order. All in all, my friends and I had a great trip. We get together for a weekend outing once a year and in the 14 years we have done this, this was hands down one of the best. This house had a lot to do with that. Thanks also for the rapid correspondence in the few weeks before and the week afterwards. We look forward to checking out the other properties you take care of!
