The community of Bentwater on Lake Conroe in Montgomery, Texas is also nestled in Montgomery County. Bruce Berlin of Berlin and Associates, was the developer that had the vision to create this luxurious, gated golf club community on the lake. After serving as a pilot in the US Navy during World War II, he began a lumber company using lumber from his family’s land. Then he started building homes and went on to build communities like April Sound. Berlin was able to create the master planned community of Bentwater that incorporated lake living and a golfing lifestyle. Bentwater was Berlin’s last community that he built.
Here are some interesting facts regarding the beginning of Bentwater. Berlin found over twelve miles of lakefront on Lake Conroe that was tied up in bankruptsy. With over one thousand acres, Berlin created the Bentwater neighborhood using his vision of a lifestyle he desired. The large track of land had two islands and took almost two years to solve all the lien issues to take ownership.
Bentwater on Lake Conroe offers two golf courses, the Miller Course and Weiskopf Course. In addition, the community has a clubhouse, spa, tennis club, health club, yacht club, and marina. Though Bruce Berlin has passed, this wonderful community lives on forever and appeals to upscale living on the lake. The north shore is said to be the preferred shore of Lake Conroe.
