About the Property

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.

Year Purchased: 2008

About: 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.

Why Rio Vista, TX, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
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.
