Things To Do

Bending Waters is a wonderful, private retreat surrounded by woodlands and wildlife, where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature with friends and family, completely sheltered from the outside world. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of northeast Oklahoma by taking our collection of kayaks out on the river and floating/paddling down to Lake Tenkiller and back.

Lake Tenkiller is just a quarter mile away from the estate, and offers tons of fun for the whole family. This is an all-sports recreation lake where you can fish, paddle and swim to your heart’s desire. Bending Waters is also surrounded by the majesty of the Ozark Mountains and rich dogwood forests. No matter the season, there is scenery and adventure to be found here.

Reviews

Every year my family located through-out Oklahoma and Colorado meet at Bending Waters for the 4th of July. It is such a wonderful bonding experience for all, that it was observed that the younger generation now coming up, think the 4th of July IS Bending waters….While the rest (aka older) of us have a more diverse 4th of July memory bank, none can recall one enjoyed as much as those spent at Bending Waters. — Ruth Ann, Jul 2015
The Bending Waters property is absolutely breathtaking! The views of the Illinois river are exceptional, waking up every morning to a variety of beautiful birds (including hummingbirds and red headed woodpeckers) and trout swimming in the river was very peaceful and relaxing. The interior of the home was spacious, well appointed and clean. There is lots to do in the area…I highly recommend Bending Waters if you’re looking for a relaxing vacation. — Douglas, Jul 2016
We didn’t ever want to leave! We were captivated by the stunning, colorful Autumn view from every oversized window. This spacious home is literally built high in the trees — where eagles fly. We were astounded when a pair of American bald eagles landed just outside the bedroom window. Unique design features of the home include: spacious, professional kitchen, enormous windows, gorgeous custom cabinets throughout, custom shower (amazing!), three family areas, large dining room, palatial master suite, and romantic double-sided fireplace. We enjoyed plenty of room for everyone. Favorite memory for the kids: hiking down the cliff to the river where they learned to skip rocks. Favorite memory for the adults: peace and quiet. Best vacay EVER! Thank you for an unforgettable Thanksgiving holiday. — Lynda, Nov 2016
Great home and great owner who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is the best it can be. — Debbie, Dec 2016

About the Owner/Manager

I’m your host Ken Lightcap, and I love coming and literally smelling the roses of our bending waters estate. I live a very busy and demanding life 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! I purchased this estate in 2002.
