About Bill and/or Judy Hess

We love to travel, are retired and have several homes.

Bill and/or Judy Hess purchased this house in 1980

Why Bill and/or Judy Hess chose Afton

We've been going to Grand Lake for over 50 years and have owned property since the 1980s. It's a little over three hours from where we live in Wichita, Kansas... near enough to get back, but far enough not to.

What makes this house unique

The home available is perfect for one or eleven and is near amenities.

Property location was very, very good. Amenities and comfort of the home were excellent. The Hess family have made it a home away from home for their guests. The only problem was the lack of Wi-Fi and not enough signal to get other alternatives to same on our cell phones. This was inconvenient as my husband still works his own business and so he had to leave every morning and go to the golf club for connections. Also only 4 channels available on the TV which was no big deal for us but might be for others. We had a great stay overall.

We loved the house & lots of room for our whole family. Our grandsons loved fishing from the dock & had plenty of room for family games. Great place to stay.

Car: recommended

The house is on "Monkey Island" located in the heart of Grand Lake O' the Cherokees in the northeast corner of Oklahoma. Crystal Bridges is within one hour in Arkansas for those who want to investigate a world renowned art museum. Bentonville, Arkansas is the home to the Walton (Sam's Club) family, Eureka Springs, Arkansas is a small, turn of the century town and very interesting. Art museums, architecture and history abound in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Bartlesville.
