Rio Vista Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

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

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. Renters must be 25 years or older. Your dogs are welcomed but you must notify the property manager and there is a one time fee per dog of $25.

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 Texas

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.

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at Inspiration Point. The view was incredible, and we spent much of our time out on the deck. Both the chiminea and the hot tub were great during the fall weather. We also appreciated the look of the general area and enjoyed visiting a couple of nearby state parks. The house is attractive, thoughtfully designed, and very comfortable. We are looking forward to returning in the future.

One Word "Perfect"

  • 5 of 5

Got together with two friends for a girls getaway. The house was perfect for a relaxing visit. It is even better than the pictures. View is stunning. The house has a great layout and everything we needed and more. We enjoyed the deck and hot tub; the area is quite and peaceful. Karen was great and helpful with directions and suggestions. A quick drive from DFW area. So glad we all agreed on this rental. We all felt so at home.

Spectacular views indeed!!

  • 5 of 5

3 couples visited for the second time so the men could ski on the river every morning and the ladies could enjoy the deck. This is the absolute perfect house for us!! The house is comfortable, beautifully furnished with everything you need, and the deck is the shining star. Extraordinary views, birds soaring up right by the deck, spectacular sunset view, and star gazing in the evening.We also really enjoyed the addition of the hot tub since our first visit several years ago. We plan on making this an annual visit from now on!!

Fantastic View and Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

First, the photos don't do the view justice. Driving up the driveway was a thrill. The covered parking was nice and then up to the splendid deck.

Plenty of seating outside and the inside was roomy for six adults. The two day visit was thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing. We made our own meals and had everything we needed to do so (we brought the food, of course).

We'll be back together and individually.

What A Treasure!

  • 5 of 5

We just had the greatest family weekend at Inspiration Point! It was the perfect location for a wedding we attended in Blum on Saturday night! We all enjoyed just relaxing at this beautiful home with the largest deck we have ever seen. Once you see the breath taking views, you understand why it is called Inspiration Point! It had everything we needed to prepare family meals and the beds were so comfortable! Karen was great for getting information before the weekend. We hope to have another opportunity in the future to stay at this special place!
