Family get-a-way (June 2-June 6 2017)

  • 4 of 5

Late in giving review but wanted to say this was a great place with plenty of room! Everyone had an awesome time and Grands made some great family memories kayaking, swimming and playing Farkle around the table. Our long weekend was more wet than expected (rain came just before we arrived and stayed almost the entire time) but we made the best of that porch and outdoor bar area! Grands have asked when we're going back to the river!

Great location, plenty of room for everyone with activities for all ages.

  • 4 of 5

My extended family (9 people) stayed on the lake while in the area for a wedding. Everyone had a great time. There was plenty of room for all. The arrangement of the bedrooms provided privacy and the common areas, both inside and out were enjoyable. We fished, watched football outside in the cabana, played horseshoes, sat on the dock and drank beer and sat around the fire at night and made s'mores. My sister told someone she saw at the front of the property that the heat was not working in the rooms she and her family were using and when we arrived back at the house that night there were space heaters left at their doors. I would recommend the property to anyone wanting to be on the water and interested in outdoor activities.

Great fun for a family get-away!

  • 4 of 5

Lots to do for everyone in the family. Loads of room for everyone to spread out. Quiet, peaceful, without noisy or intruding neighbors. Pleasant interactions setting up visit. Everything clean and available when we arrived. Close to grocery store and other services.

Negatives - entire property needs a bit of TLC. Grills in terrible shape - plan to bring your own. Charcoal grill falling apart. Gas grill so dirty it quickly flared up and ruined about $200 worth of steaks.

We would return if property get needed maintenance.

Thanks for a great weekend!

Great Fun on the River!

  • 4 of 5

This was a great place for a reunion. I especially liked how every bedroom had it's own bath. I also liked that 3 of the bedrooms were very private away from the rest of the group. This is great for those that need that quiet space. There was lots to do with the outside stuff and the river was fun to play in. The traffic on the river was light, even on the weekend. This suited us great.

The downside, we needed more pantry space and more sitting inside. They have a nice big room and one table for 4. They do have many bar stools though. But it's hard to play cards on the bar.

Bigger than you'd think!

  • 5 of 5

This place is huuuuge! We spent the majority of our time in the yard throwing shoes and watching the water. Awesome fire pit, outside bar WITH extra fridge/sink/flatscreen. Bathrooms galore and epic bluetooth stereo (over the inside TV) with indoor AND outdoor speakers. Totally separate stereo in/at the outside bar. If you're planning a family outting, this place will work perfectly! It IS a little far from town, so grab what you need for the weekend and park it!

Peaceful time with family!

  • 4 of 5

A bathroom to every bedroom was great! House keeping was poor. Our feet were black walking inside the house. Floors had been swept but not moped!

About Talia Walton

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.

Talia Walton purchased this house in 2012

Why Talia Walton chose Weatherford

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.
