Tenkiller Lake Estate Rental Photos and Description

Home, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 3 Fireplaces (Comfortably Sleeps 13)

This beautiful modern home is 3800 square feet where rustic charm is combined with contemporary elegance that comfortably sleeps 13 people. It comes complete with 3 bedrooms, 2 and 1/2 baths, and 2 family rooms with wood burning fireplaces that overlook the river and walk out to a deck. The master bedroom comes complete with a private 2 person Jacuzzi, large walk in shower with body sprays and large rain-head, gas fire place and deck with sights and sounds of the river below. The kitchen is fully equipped with an eating area that has a fabulous view of the river complete with hearth room, fireplace and television. A formal dining room is adjacent to the living room on the main floor. A gas grill is just off the kitchen on a 2-level deck. Every room has large windows that overlook the river and the private wooded acreage.

This peaceful home is a true retreat with wildlife such as humming birds, eagles, deer, turkey, squirrel and lots of fish such as crappie, trout, bass, catfish and more. The best sand bass fishing in the area is right in your back yard!

This quiet home sits in the midst of thousands of acres of corps of engineers land. The road is paved all the way to the house with 900 feet solid rock drive to the home. A koi pond with water fall and lilies welcome you to a place of serenity, relaxation and peace.

This beautiful home I call, Bending Waters, is nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, surrounded with dogwood forests, hilly terrain and beautiful foliage from spring through fall with the Illinois River coming through the back yard of the wooded acreage. I know you will enjoy your stay as you soak in as much of the relaxation and fun that you have time for while remembering what else there is to offer that can be experienced in your next trip to our home, Bending Waters!

Illinois River:

Our back yard is on the scenic clear waters of the Illinois River providing opportunity for fun, adventure and photography! There are many outfitters along the river that provide (or you may bring your own) kayak, canoe or raft to enjoy 70 miles of floating where you will observe scenery of the Ozark hills, high bluffs, rocky islands, medley of wildlife and dense forests by way of the river. shuttle services are available through most of the outfitters.

Fishing:

Year-round fishing is good with black bass, white bass, striped bass, crappie, channel and flathead catfish, bream and walleye, with rainbow and brown trout stocked in the Illinois River below the dam. Three heated fishing docks offer winter fun for crappie fishing. Lake Tenkiller is popular for fishing tournaments. Fishing is a year-round activity with each season producing its own fun! More than 70 species of fish have been found in the waters. Classes are available for fly-fishing, lure tying and guided fishing trips.

Lake Tenkiller:

This peaceful home is just .5 mile from Lake Tenkiller which is the clearest body of water in Oklahoma. It is nearly 13,000 acres of water and over 130 miles of shoreline. This beautiful lake provides a wide variety of boating activities that cover sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding, inner tubing, and cruising, lounging, fishing and jet skiing. There are many secluded coves to anchor into and enjoy a day on the lake. The sunsets and clear night skies are perfect for stargazing and romance. There are full service marinas on the lake that provide fuel, snacks, and swimwear and water toys. Several marinas rent pontoons, ski boats and wave runners. Four of the marinas serve as floating restaurants.

Scuba Diving:

Scuba Park is a diver’s dream with clear waters from 8-30 feet. You will see sunken vehicles, planes, boats, remains of homesteads and artifacts left behind before the lake was formed that give divers a glimpse of history. The lakes underwater terrain ranges from sloping hills to rock cliffs, and the water goes up to 165 feet in places. Some divers go spearfishing! Two diving pro shops are located on the lake offering training, certification and equipment rental.

Hunting:

Approximately 2,590 acres of project land are licensed to the Oklahoma Dept. of Wildlife conservation for a State Game Management Area. Principal game species include whitetail deer, bobwhite quail, wild turkey, mourning dove, duck, geese, cottontail rabbit and squirrel.

Golfing:

Cherry Springs Golf Club, a scenic championship course, is located north of Tenkiller Lake on the southern edge of Tahlequah. Tenkiller Golf Club’s championship course plays through a hardwood forest on the southeast corner of Tenkiller Lake.

Nature and Hiking:

There is a wide variety of outdoor recreational opportunities for bird watching and wildlife observation. You will see migratory geese, ducks and other waterfowl. Winter time is an excellent time to view bald eagles, bobcats and whitetail deer. White pelicans come in the fall. Elk, deer, turkeys, bobcats, squirrels, bald eagles, rabbits and owls can be seen. Spectacular rock formations, huge boulders, high bluffs and natural springs are enjoyed. Programs from bird watching to tree identification to animal habitat are scheduled activities. The following places can be accessed by foot and some by horse or mountain bike: Tenkiller Valley Recreational Area, Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge, Cookson Game Refuge, Tenkiller State Park Nature Center, Standing Rock Nature Trail, Buzzard Roost Trail at Cato Creek Landing and Overlook Nature Trail located at the Tenkiller Dam Overlook.

I love coming and literally smelling the roses of our bending waters estate. I live very busy and demanding live that I truly love. For me, there is nothing like coming here because this is a beautiful serene place where the stresses of life just seem to float away down the river. The majestic views from our beautiful home inspire my creativity and romance while rejuvenating my souls. Living on the land and enjoying the scenic clear waters is refreshing and exhilarating, while providing lots of fun and adventure for me and my entire family. As I leave this safe harbor, I am always strengthened and rejuvenated to face the stormy sea of life once again!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this estate in 2002

I discovered this sublime secluded piece of property that inspired me to personally design, build and furnish my dream home to complement the beauty of God's majestic handiwork in this place of serenity. This elegant home I call, Bending Waters, is nestled in the foothills of the Ozark Mountains, surrounded with dogwood forests, hilly terrain and beautiful foliage from spring through fall with the scenic crystal clear waters of the Illinois River boarding the back of the wooded acreage.

Bending Waters is a private retreat of vegetation and wildlife where you can enjoy the beauty and sounds of nature. This is a place of refreshing tranquility and peace! We like taking our kayaks to the water's edge of our back acreage for a brisk ride down the river to Lake Tenkiller, just 1/4 mile away. The lake provides lots of fun, adventure and excitement for the whole family! I know you will enjoy your stay as you soak in as much of the relaxation and fun that you have time for while remembering there is more to offer that can be experienced in your next trip to our amazing home, Bending Waters!

We are a foster family with 7 young children and it was very easy to enjoy nature and relax at this cabin. The house is very child friendly and had many rooms to accommodate all of us very comfortably. We've already recommended it to several friends and hope to go back and visit again in a few months. The owners are incredibly helpful and friendly. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

This is a beautiful home and my family and I really enjoyed our stay. The view out of the windows of the river and the mountains are incredible. Before leaving, we started planning for a trip to return for next year. I had the pleasure of speaking with the owners prior to my vist, and they are one of the nicest people around. I would most definitley recommend this property for a family get-a-way. This is a nice place to relax, away from it all.
