About Ken Lightcap
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!
Ken Lightcap purchased this Estate in 2002
Why Ken Lightcap chose Park Hill
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.
What makes this Estate unique
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 absolutely loved our stay! It is beautiful, peaceful and exactly what we all needed! We loved the house, owner, wildlife, cleanliness and convenience! We definitely plan to go back soon and really hope to win the 3 day stay in October! 😍😍😍😍😍
Ken was great to work with. Very responsive. Our weekend was a great retreat!
The property is extremely nice. Plenty of space to spread out in the house. The property was updated and very clean. Also, enjoyed the quiet as the property is well positioned. Will definitely return!
Perfect recipe for getting away
Spent the week with my 2 boys and dogs 🐕�in eastern OK, a place we’d never been to before. Able to work/home-school for a few hours each day followed by bike riding, fishing, exploring along the river/lake, golf, kayaking, jet skiing and s’mores - had so much fun! Appreciate the hospitality, wonderful accommodations and helping us out on the water.....perfect recipe for beating the cabin fever we were suffering from back home.....thank you Ken!
Wow Nate it was a blast having you and boys you will always be welcome here!
Could not have picked a more secluded and beautiful weekend getaway with the kids and grandkids! The property is perfect, inside and out, and I enjoyed every minute spent in the beautiful kitchen. Situated right above the river, we saw so much wildlife and the VIEW! The property owner didn't miss a beat making sure our arrival and departure went as smoothly as possible. We can't wait to come back in the summer!
