Each of the 3 bedrooms has a double bed and there are 2 double and 1 single foldouts for children in the living and dining areas. The home overlooks Grand Lake from a private, deep cove. There are 2 full baths, a fully equipped laundry room, a large family room (with TV, DVD, CD, Satellite Radio, stereo and bar), living and dining area, wood burning fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, covered carport and parking areas, sectioned heat and AC.

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 Oklahoma

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.

Peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The homeowners were extremely responsive and accommodating. A wonderfully maintained property that suited our family's needs perfectly for an overnight stay in November. Great place for a summer getaway with friends or family reunion in the fall. Highly recommend!

Fantastic lake side home! Spacious and comfortable with all of the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic lake side home! Spacious and comfortable with all of the amenities. We grilled out the first night and then explored all of the eateries in and around Monkey Island the remainder of the time including the Buffalo Grill and Bar at the Shangri La Country Club. Great spot for a couple's getaway weekend but it would also be wonderful for a family of 4-6 or 2-3 couples looking for a fun lake weekend. The lakeside deck and big side yard with a fire pit were nice extra touches. The owners were extremely accessible leading up to and during the trip with quick, detailed answers to our questions. We will definitely be back!! Thank you Hess Family for an incredible time!!

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.
