Location

Car: Necessary

We are on a lovely, protected cove on the North side of Lake Travis, directly across from Lakeway. The Gnarly Gar Restaurant and marina is a short block away. (However it is currently closed for remodeling) The Members Only neighborhood pool, exercise facilities and library is also just a short block away. A card key to use these facilities is included.

We are 2 blocks from the Golf course and Pro shop. It is a wonderful 9-hole course that will awe you with the views and challenge your golfing skills all the while being watched by numerous White Tail Deer.

You will have access to a Members Only park less than a mile away where you can launch your boat, enjoy a great fresh water beach, grill, picnic, hike, play in the recently updated childrens park or play basketball.

Other Activities: Boating, skiing, floating, fishing, wildlife viewing, basketball, hiking

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Jamie and Mary Cotterell and Alan and Ricki Anne Dodd bought this property together in 2006. Jamie and Ricki are brother and sister and our families have always enjoyed doing things together, especially water sports. We loved the idea of a place big enough and with plenty of bedrooms for our families to get together. We just love coming to the lake, relaxing, hanging out with family and enjoying the lake, grilling and fishing. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do! Jamie and Mary live in Cedar Park, TX and Alan and Ricki live in Kingwood, TX

Why the Owner Chose Point Venture:
Lake Travis is one of the most beautiful lakes in TX and we love the TX Hill country. We chose Point Venture because it is on the North side of the lake and closer to Cedar Park where Jamie and Mary live. The cove we are on is so nice and peaceful and has beautiful sunrises. Point Venture offers so many wonderful amenities like a 9-hole golf course, private park with a wonderful sandy beach, basketball, play ground, covered pavilion, boat launch and hiking trails.
