About Skip and Amy Shifflett
We are a loving family from Dallas with 2 small kids. We enjoy getting away when we can and love our family and vacation time. When not at home in Dallas, you can find us here enjoying Whatalake House near the beautiful Lake Texoma with family and friends. Though Texas is our home, we love visiting Oklahoma side when we can. We are truly blessed and take great joy when other families can get away and relax at one of our 2 properties. Faith, Family & Friends. Enjoy!

Why Skip and Amy Shifflett chose Kingston
We love the proximity from Dallas and other larger Oklahoma cities. Its nice to sit on the patio, look over the lake and see Texas! The closeness to the lake and beautiful secluded views are very welcoming. This truly feels like a getaway Lake House miles from it all, but not to far away for a quick weekend trip.

Family Gathering Weekend
We had a great time. The accommodations were perfect for the needs of our group. Very helpful information was provided by owners. Communication was prompt. Easy, relaxing stay.
Our family has been through the ringer in the last year. We decided for Easter we would try to get away and relax a little, with no distractions. The Whatalakehouse was the perfect spot. We were met with a beautiful, clean house, stocked with all the necessities. Skip & Amy thought of everything! Like other reviews, we definitely recommend following the written directions you’ll receive before your trip. We only booked for the weekend, and regret not staying longer.
So glad you had a nice and relaxing time. Glad we could help make a memory and hope to have you again. Thanks!
Very nice ! Clean comfortable and reasonably priced. Nothing extravagant just a modern and well appointed 3 bedroom lake house in a gated community that seemed very private and secure. Definitely recommend and would like to go back!
Glad you liked the place Brett. We would love to have you back anytime!
Great house! Spacious, clean.
We loved the house. Skip is a great host.
Great for a large group.
This was our second time and we're likely to use it again in the future.
Charming lake house with room for the whole family!
I stayed here with a group of 9 adults, 2 children, and 2 infants. The house had plenty of room for us all to spread out and to enjoy meals altogether as a family.
The house was a little difficult to find using GPS - be sure to follow the instructions the host provides before your stay. As we approached the house, it sits atop a hill which allows for views of the lake past the houses in front of it. There is lots of outdoor space to run and play, have cookouts, enjoy the fire pit, etc. There is also beach access nearby.
Inside the house, there is a fully-equipped kitchen with lots of counter space and modern appliances. There is a large dining table which accommodated our entire group comfortably. There is one bedroom downstairs with a king bed and adjoining bathroom (also accessible from the living space). Living room has lots of seating and large television with satellite. There is also a full size laundry room to keep up with dirty items. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms, each with two sets of bunk beds. There is a full size bathroom and a very large game room. Half of the space is equipped as an additional bedroom and the other half has a pool table, large sectional sofa, and a large television. It has a balcony patio that stretches the entire width of the house. One thing that was awesome is every bedroom has access to an outdoor patio.
The hosts were very accommodating and did their best to make our stay enjoyable. They responded to messages very quickly and provided lots of helpful information. The lake house is pretty remote, so when you stay here, you should be prepared to enjoy the house and the land and of course the lake. There is a Walmart about 30 minutes away.
Overall, we had a wonderful weekend stay and no one was ready to leave! Would definitely recommend!
PS - The only thing we could suggest would be to have a baby gate so we could block off the stairs for toddlers. Other than that, we had everything we needed!
