Standing tall and proud, the Tanglewood Tower overlooks the beautiful Lake Texoma as an iconic figure at our North Texas resort, Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center. When it comes to Lake Texoma attractions, there are endless things to do in the area, but for an incredible vantage point of the lake, Tanglewood Tower is one of the best. This custom lighthouse doubles as six individually styled suites, a fantastic lounge, and a beacon that spreads light out over the lake.
A Historical Design
Tanglewood Resort and Conference Center has always been a hub for memorable North Texas getaways, and in 1974 the Tanglewood Tower was erected by the famed O’Neil Ford adding even more to love to the resort. Known for his iconic designs throughout the Southeastern portion of the United States, O’Neil Ford made sure to add his signature flair throughout the tower. Using a “lift-slab” method alongside Tom Slick, the tower was designed and built using the expertise of his brother, Lynn, to add artistic touches to create a truly unique structure. Very little has changed since it’s construction, but the addition of an elevator in 2016 and an HVAC system in 2018 have simply made the structure even more accessible and modernized for comfort.
An Unforgettable Stay
The original designs of the suites were classic and each floor was different from the next. After the recent remodel in 2018, each suite is now based around iconic figures we all know and love, such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, The Beatles, and others. The newly renovated Tower Suites boast beautifully unique designs throughout each level with varying color schemes and elegant furnishings to match their iconic figure’s individuality. Sink to your nose in a luxurious bubble bath in the claw-foot tub and find infinite comfort in the king-sized bed. Depending on the suite you choose, you can either enjoy incredible views of Lake Texoma from your balconies or a soak in the garden/indoor jacuzzi.
