Lake Whitney Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Chateau / Country House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or just time away from your concrete city-scape, come on out to relax and to be truly inspired by the spectacular view from every room in our well- appointed, 3 king-bedroom, 2 bath vacation home. Upon stepping inside the front door of Inspiration Point, you will be greeted by a wall of windows and awe-inspiring view. Your stay at Inspiration Point will provide you with a memorable experience, indeed!

Inspiration Point is often enjoyed as a delightful girl friends' getaway in a luxurious country home away from home. Or, many find it a perfect setting for an intimate couples retreat. Families with children come to enjoy the river from sun-up to sun-down. In the evenings you are still 'at the river' in luxury, peace and quiet. The large covered deck with hot tub, outdoor fireplace, gas and smoker grills offers an out-door experience for you and your family -- under the stars while having all the comforts of home in comfortable king-size beds.

Bring your boat or jet ski! If your family, or that special someone, loves boating, fishing or, skiing or just enjoys basking in the Texas sun, you'll be 5 minutes from Hamm Creek Park and boat launch on the Brazos River. Our property allows for easy boat parking, too.

Spend a couple nights or a week or two. If you allow yourself the luxury of time, Inspiration Point will melt away all traces of stress as you relish each moment gazing from high above, over hundreds of acres of green space, farm land and Texas mesas surrounding the Brazos River.

And, oh my, the opportunity for spectacular sunrises and sunsets from the spacious covered porch will be the only reason to consider 'time' while at Inspiration Point. You will set your clock by the beauty that only nature can provide.

Our guests enjoy a fully furnished kitchen with an array of staples. Bring your own food and drink preferences and make yourselves at home. Prepare your meals in the kitchen or at the gas or smoker grills out on the covered deck. Eat at the dining table situated in front of the wall-of-windows, or take your meals out onto the lovely deck for a luxurious country picnic-in-the-sky.

If you can bear to pull yourselves away from Inspiration Point to look for other things to do, there are a variety of small towns just a short country drive away. Glen Rose, Texas offers an abundance of antiquing, unique restaurants, Fossil Rim Wildlife Park, Dinosaur Valley, and more. If you prefer a lake to the river, Lake Whitney is also a short drive from Inspiration Point. Another excellent choice would be to visit the historic town square in Granbury, Texas. Should you long for live theatre and think you're too far away from big city life to find such entertainment, set your worries to rest. The Plaza Theatre in Cleburne is a no-traffic, 25-minute country drive north of Inspiration Point.

Inspiration Point vacation home boasts a spectacular Texas Hill Country experience, and a totally unique ambience; all located unexpectedly close to Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas.

Come be inspired to just relax, read, play, or just ...BE, and breathe ...deeply.

About The Owner

We're a family of long-time skiers and hunting, boating and nature enthusiasts. We have spent many vacations on the Brazos River north of Lake Whitney and not too far from our permanent home just south of the Dallas area. Everyone who visits is delightfully surprised by the stunning view, peaceful surroundings and simply inspiring experience. We hope you will make Inspiration Point your next vacation or retreat spot. Once you do, we know you will come back again, and again.

The Owner purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why The Owner chose Lake Whitney

FIsherman's Paradise is situated just West of Rio Vista, TX about 30 minutes north of Lake Whitney.

With a long career in general contracting of residential and commercial properties, we knew that this lovely river house known as Inspiration Point in Fisherman's Paradise, to be one of the most unique and beautiful places on the Brazos River.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Fisherman's Paradise is a little-known area in Johnson County, TX, just West of the small town of Rio Vista and about 30 minutes north of Lake Whitney. Our vacation home offers a gorgeous, country getaway or intimate retreat destination convenient to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.

Our property sits high on a hill overlooking the Brazos River and provides convenient access to the new Hamm Creek boat launch. In addition to boating and fishing activities offered by the river, we most enjoy the spectacular view and peacefulness surrounding us, especially from our porch. The property is lovely year round and is accented on some winter mornings (in addition to the beautiful sunrise) by a ribbon of fog running the curvature of the river with soft clouds hovering just above the valley creating a surreal experience that makes every sip of our morning coffee even more delicious.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have so enjoyed our stay here. The view is so magnificent. To wake up looking at this majestic skyline has ben exactly what we needed to decompress and relax. Our life is so hectic that you forget how to slow down and "smell the roses". Karen was great in helping us get this trip booked, excellent directions by the way. Thank you so much for allowing us this week together just to enjoy each other in this beautiful local.

My wife wanted a time for our family to be together. I booked Inspiration Point for a week where my wife and I, our two sons and their wives could get together to celebrate. While we were there the weather got extremely cold, the wind was consistently high, and we watched sunsets from the comfort of the steaming Jacuzzi. A fire in the fireplace, football game on satellite TV, and a workable kitchen meant we have everything we needed. It was especially nice that each bedroom has a king bed so no one felt like someone else had a better room. Karen, the property manager responded to messages immediately and was extremely helpful. I expect that we'll return!

We booked Inspiration Point for a Girls weekend and to go and see The Promise in Glen Rose. The house was amazing. Beautiful drive to get there and the view never gets old. We really enjoyed the fire outside in the chimenea in the evenings. Almost every room has a view out over the valley. The house is incredibly clean, comfortable and I would recommend it for almost any type of group or trip. We are planning to go back in the spring for a couples trip. The property manager is extremely prompt with replies and answering questions. I strong suggest enjoying Glen Rose. It has great charm and if you are going in the fall, The Promise isn't just a play, but a true spiritual experience. Really enjoyed it.

Inspiration Point

True to the name of this home. As soon as we arrived (2 adults, 2 kids: 11 years and 4 years old), we fell in luv with this home. I personally loved the fact that it was super easy to contact the owner for questions via email (fast wifi) or via phone. If we ever travel to this area again, we'd definitely stay here. P.S. Bring your binocular. WE forgot ours. Also, it was very windy the days we stayed, and the window screens rattled really loud. I'm not sure why the screens are needed. When we were there, we never open the windows.
