Tanglewood on Lake Texoma


Tanglewood is one of the best known resort communities on Lake Texoma.  Established in the fifties and sixties,the resort benefits from its location in the hills above the lake’s premiere marina, Highport. Tanglewood is also directly across from Lake Texoma's famed sand-beach islands, a primary destination on the lake that stretch for miles through the middle of the lake. 


Add an 18 hole golf course and excellent dining and Tanglewood has a lot to offer its residents including one  of the three Extreme Sandbox, full-size bulldozer parks where you can drive a 22 ton bull dozer or road grader, or operate a full sized crane.


For many years, The Tanglewood neighborhood was a weekender only destination for residents of the Dallas / Fort Worth area. Today, about half of the residents are full-time and half are weekenders. 

Homes in Tanglewood range from moderately priced lake cabins, to large homes on the golf course and multimillion dollar mansions on acreage. The lifestyle in the  neighborhoods of Tanglewood is active, boat-loving, very relaxed, outdoors and fun.


Children living in Tanglewood benefit from attending the schools of the Pottsboro Independent School District, which is well rated. 

As may be expected in a rural resort community, shopping is limited. When anything major is needed, residents drive the 8 or so miles to Hwy 75 and Walmart. Food shopping is readily at hand and restaurants are also available nearby.  Tanglewood has 6 restaurants and the Commodore Club in the main clubhouse, has some of the best food in the area.  Peppercorn Steak is the best steak in north Texas. 

Tanglewood is approximately 45 minutes from Frisco, 1 hour to Plano and 1-1/2 hours to the Park Cities in Dallas.
