LOVELY, DEEP WATERFRONT HOME ON THE POSSUM KINGDOM PENINSULA

Possum Kingdom Lake House Rental Photos and Description

Great house, great views, deep water, great East side location!

This waterfront tri-level home was built in 2005. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, located close to the end of the Peninsula on the east side of Possum Kingdom lake.

This is a private home with a wood burning fireplace, central air and heat, beamed cathedral ceiling, multiple covered decks, and fabulous views of the lake from every room. (We turned the house plans around so the large windows face the lake.)

There are extensive custom stone patios with steps going down to the lake, a fishing pier and over 300 feet of private secluded shoreline. We are the last house on our road, with a wilderness area to the left and there's unlimited shoreline past our 300 feet, to explore.

Mexican saltillo tile floors with rugs are on the second and lower level, two fully tiled baths, central heating and air conditioning, ceiling fans, huge, well equipped kitchen, with microwave, range, dishwasher, washer & dryer, side by side refrigerator with water and ice in the door, and a separate built in icemaker. The living area has flat screen cable TV, dvd player and stereo. There are carpeted bedrooms, (with a king, two queen sized beds and two roll away beds.) The over sized master bedroom has it's own TV, sitting area, huge paladin windows with a panoramic lake view, Master bath with jacuzzi, separate shower, twin sinks and a balcony for relaxing and taking in the views.

Everything you need has been provided to make your stay a pleasant one!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We stayed here in April 2013 and had a great weekend. Anna responded very promptly and professionally to all questions and planning needs. The house was gorgeous and comfortable and very accessible to everything we needed within the area – lake, boat rental, golf, dining, grocery, etc. I would highly recommend.

We started renting our home as a 'Vacation Home Rental' last year. We are retired and have a home in Fort Worth. When we are away we thought we would share our home with families that would love and respect our home as we do. Friends and family are what makes life rich, and each of our homes are filled with gatherings from our travels, good food and laughter. We designed the spacious home to utilize the beauty of the lake, the native trees, Palo Pinto mountain surround, and wildlife gathering spot. It's such a treat to see the herds of deer gathering in the evening by Sandy Beach!

Possum Kingdom will bring you back year after year. Noel and Anna Blair

Anna Blair purchased this house in 2005

This home undoubtedly has the best deep water views on the lake!

We are close to the end of the Peninsula in a secluded area, teaming with wildlife and nature. Our home is located on a point with panoramic views in every direction! We offer covered porch decks, stone patio with adirondack chairs, huge window views of the lake, and a fully equipped, almost new home.

Our waterfront has 350 feet of private shoreline, and unlimited, natural shoreline to the left, since we are the last property. We have a fishing pier and our secluded wooded, hillside lot is 1/2 acre.

You will find peace and relaxation at our place, in comfortable surroundings. Nature lovers will find plenty of wildlife. We have deer, wild turkeys, humming birds and of course, there's lots of fish and water birds!

A new hiking trail was recently put in which goes to Sandy Beach on the left. Just a short hike through the woods to reach deep sand and a playground, picnic tables and the lake. Of course everyone can swim at our place as well.

We are close to several public boat launches and boat rental facilities, if you are into boating, be sure to check out the cliffs of Hell's Gate. The lake offers a vast variety of natural lake views.

This is a great place for a family vacation or a place to unwind, relax and take in the natural beauty!

When we built this home in 2005, we turned the back of the house around so it faces the road. The true front faces the lake, and is much more attractive than the back but we did that so most of the windows would face the view. We have arched windows in the master with a beautiful lake view and windows all across the lake side. This is a secluded, quiet, beautiful and relaxing place!

NOT GOOD

  • 1 of 5
The house itself is nice but basic amenities were not. The price listed was misleading - after the required 'insurance', the required charge for cleaning, and taxes, the price was well above the cost per night that was initially quoted. The ice machine did not work, the fire alarm system went off multiple times at night, and the septic tank alarm went off on the second day so guests could only take 1-2 minute showers for fear that the tank would overflow. When notified about the fire alarm, the owner inquired about smokers (no!) and then suggested we turn off the system at the fuse box (not safe!). Cell phone reception was nonexistent except at the very edge of an old dry dock. I understand the lack of cell coverage but there is no phone at all in the house to call 911 if needed. We left a day early because of all this. This information was texted to the owner and she has not bothered to reply at all.

Owner's Response: Joe, your experience at our house was not typical. Granted, there were some issues and we tried to take care of them as best we could given the circumstances. All waterfront properties at P.K. are on septic systems which has to pump up hill (in our case) away from the lake. Our two pump system has to pump to the top of a steep hill (Burma Mountain). Because prior guests flushed inappropriate items, our pump was burned out right before your stay! We hurriedly had the three septic tanks pumped out so everything would be okay for your stay, and had to wait until the service guy could install a new pump. I told you to turn off the alarm because we knew the pump was out, and nothing could happen since the tanks had been pumped.
Because of the hills, we do have poor cell phone service because of the hills. I did not receive a text message from you, which is why it was unanswered, but I did speak with you on the phone a couple times to explain what was happening. It was something we had no control of, and in spite of warnings on the contract (and in the bathrooms) about not flushing anything but toilet paper, someone did. Their thoughtless act cost us three thousand dollars, and you a bad experience at our home.
Insurance ($49) is required of everyone who books and taxes are a part of the total cost. State and local taxes hotel tax amounts to 10%. Cleaning is charged at actual cost and would be the same amount if you stayed two days or two weeks. A local pastor at P.K. owns the cleaning company and does a great job, in my opinion.
We are sorry for your bad experience (and ours as well.)

Best Regards,
Anna

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for a guys weekend. Was perfect place to just hang out by the lake. I would not recomwnd for small kids as it is on the side of a cliff. So it would be harder for kids to get to water. Property is really awesome overall.

RELAXING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Our weekend stay in your property was amazing! The house was just as it was described: clean, spacious, and had an amazing view! Our family of 6 were comfortable in our respective rooms and had plenty of space to relax in the living room as well as on the deck. The spacious kitchen was great since we had lots of cooks! We couldn't get over the view - especially from the master bedroom balcony. Unfortunately the lake is down, but that didn't stop us from spending time on the water. We used the public ramp at the Brazos River Authority area just down the road. We were even able to tie up our boat to some of the trees in the water near the house and wade in. The only issues we had were tiny and not a problem. Water pressure was only an issue if more than one person was showering or if the dish washer was running or a toilet flushed. Otherwise the water pressure was fine and we had plenty of hot water. Our other issue was ants, but ONLY if food wasn't put away or dropped. We only had this issue because our toddler dropped food and we didn't realize it. From that point on we were sure to quickly pick up spills and put all food away before heading out for the day. We would recommend this property to anyone, and hope to come back again someday. Perhaps in the fall when it's not so hot!

Thank you so much!

NICE HOME

  • 3 of 5
This was a very nice home and was met most of our needs. The description was very right on to what we found at the home with the exception of linens, towels etc. everything was there except kitchen towels or cloths. The property was clean and well maintained but we had an ant problem from day one. The living room and kitchen both had ants we had to deal with daily. I know the lake is low and it has nothing to do with the owners. It is a beautiful view and I'm sure the swimming area is nice when the lake is full but at the lake level being where it is the "beach" is very rocky and hard to get to. The tenants before us had made a platform walkway with boards they had found to make a way to get to the beach. There is a "dock" or "pier" but it is not in very good shape and I definitely wouldn't recommend the steps down to beach from "pier". It was fine for adults but I can't imagine having children at the beach area. Also you can observe a definite difference between the pictures on the site and actuality; there are trees standing in the immediate "beach" area which would normally be underwater.. This is not a huge deal; however it gives a false impression of the beach area and could be a problem for some others who do not like to be near trees in the water. If you have a boat this is something you need to know. Our overall stay was great, the home is very nice, and most of our problems were not anything the homeowner could fix. The late check in (5pm) and early checkout (10 am) is somewhat inconvenient for guests. I would recommend this home for adults without children and I would visit again when the lake level is up.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Carly.
I think the ant problem has been resolved, with spraying inside and around the foundation outside. I guess with Fall and Winter approaching, they decided to move in! lol
Unfortunately, the drought is something we have no control over. I wish the lake was full also, but we still have plenty of water, since we are in the deep water channel. Just have a bit more "beach" than usual.
We have concrete steps that go down to the beach area, so I'm not sure what was meant there. The last step is pretty high now, since normally that would be the place to enter the water to swim.
Not sure what you meant about the towels and linens. I know the cleaning crew often takes them home to launder when they are pressed for time. There are plenty of bath towels, kitchen towels and linens, and a call should've been made to Don's Concierge at the lake, if there wasn't enough available for your stay. (His number was in the guest book, with instructions to call if everything wasn't okay).
Otherwise, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you back in the future. Let's all pray for more rain to get us all out of this drought situation!
Best Regards,
Anna

A network of Hiking trails have been completed, one of which is on our road. Turn right on the trail at the Trail- head and it's a short hike to Sandy Beach. Small children can play on the playground equipment, swim and play in the deep sand and gentle lake slope. Pack a picnic lunch, there are tables and grills.

Lots of deer and other wildlife abound (no hunting). P.K. is a great place to water ski, since the lake is 75 miles long! The Brazos River feeds the lake, and a short distance away are canoe rentals, where you can spend the day on the river.

Golfers can play at The Cliffs- one of the finest and most difficult golf courses in Texas and one of the most beautiful. The view of the cliffs and lake from the cliffs behind the club house is a must-see.

Or just stay at our home and relax, read, fish and/or swim. Watch the sea birds and deer, an occasional fox, wild turkey, etc., etc.

P.K. is still beautiful. Our area wasn't impacted by the fires. Come out and relax- you won't want to go home.

P.K. is approximately 75 miles west of Ft. Worth and the metroplex. Come out, sit under the stars and unwind!
