A special treat is to venture on down to the floating restaurant on Lake Travis, The Gnarly Gar, for some lake side food and to listen to the locals play your favorite music.

About Lisa & Richard Jackson

We are Texans and love Lake Travis. We have been making memories on Lake Travis for over 30 years. It is exciting to hear how travelers to our home are making long-lasting memories here too. We think this is heaven on earth!

Lisa & Richard Jackson purchased this house in 2002

Why Lisa & Richard Jackson chose Point Venture

We built this house in 2002 on land that has been in the family for 40 years. The house was designed with the idea of being together and enjoying the views.

What makes this house unique

The house was designed to have a view of the lake from just about any place in the house. Our most favorite spot is the deck. We gather on the deck on the double chase or hang out in the hot tub and tell stories for hours. Fireside chats with a glass of wine with good friends is another favorite.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It was a girls 3 day stay and we had a blast!! BEAUTIFUL view, house was immaculate and well equipped. I would recommend this home to anyone wanting a carefree, relaxing time.

Beyond perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa, we had an absolutely amazing time at the lake! The accommodations were everything we expected and more! I had everything I needed in the kitchen to prepare Thanksgiving for all of us. We found our way around with no trouble and, loved all of the deer in the area. We even got to go out on the lake on a friends boat...beautiful! Oh, and the hot tub was a hit! I highly recommend Point Venture!

Great house for a weekend getaway with friends. Gorgeous lake view and relaxing hot tub on the deck. Nicely furnished but not too fancy for young kids.?

Perfect location for my mother's 85th Birthday Party!

  • 5 of 5

The house was huge with a nice layout for inside and outside gatherings. The view of the lake was beautiful! The owners were so nice and accommodating. We were there during Hurricane Harvey and Lisa was very sweet and concerned for us. I highly recommend this rental.

Everything couldn't have been more perfect. The house is HUGE with plenty of space for our 12 people to spread out and tons of room for everyone to sleep. The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we could ever need and Lisa was always available and checking in if we needed anything else. We pretty much lived outside on the deck for the weekend. The views are gorgeous, the sun sets over the lake right in front of you every evening and it couldn't be better. We will definitely be back. Thank you Jackson family!

Absolutely breathtaking views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful in every way!! We loved the cool crisp mornings eating breakfast on the deck. The hummingbirds, deer in the backyard and lightening bugs were the lights of the stay. We loved the pool and lake swimming. We also rented a boat one day which was awesome because you catch the boat 5 minutes from the house. The only bumps we had were the beds were a bit uncomfortable and had some trouble working the DVD player. Not major. Overall we loved this house so much that we would stay here again!!! Lisa was available all the time and even left a basket of goodies for us! Thank you for sharing your amazing home!!! 😃

BEAUTIFUL, and perfect for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous experience at Carl's on the Lake. The home was absolutely beautiful, and there was plenty of space for 9 kids and 9 adults. The home was clean, comfortable, fun, and the view was amazing. We loved the outside deck and the kids loved the hot tub. We saw several deer hanging around the house, so cute! It was a perfect space for our family reunion. We spent the first day at the community pool (which is close by, partially shaded, and big) and the second day at the beach/lake. We spent our evenings gathered around the dining room table playing games and eating together. We also went to the Gnarly Gar - awesome restaurant nearby. We would absolutely stay there again! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Lisa!
