About Karen Jordan-Markham

We have a home in Austin and several years ago were looking for a second home. We thought Colorado...ended up 45 minutes and a 'world away' from our home in town. A short drive gave us a totally different experience without getting on an airplane.

Karen Jordan-Markham purchased this house in 2007

Why Karen Jordan-Markham chose Waterford On Lake Travis

Secluded, relaxing, outdoor amenities, the best of both worlds. A place to relax, read and a place to run, boat, swim and experience the outdoors.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this house because it was so 'eclectic'. This house has great personality. Lots of conversational space yet plenty of room for sleeping. With three decks, you can be outside on any level. A great friend/family reunion destination....

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us the use of your beautiful place! Everyone who walked in to the place was just amazed at the view and accommodations. We had a great time fixing food, playing games and when the weather allowed enjoying all the balconies.

We had a wonderful time and you are so lucky to have such a wonderful retreat for your family! Thanks for sharing it with ours. Our daughter will remember her 30th birthday forever!

From the bottom of my heart thank you for a wonderful memory for the birthday girl and her friends and family.

Gorgeous views of the river!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the amazing porches on ground floor and 2nd floor . From the top floor you could see the river and beautiful scenery. Really nice. Karen was helpful and responsive to communication all along the way. Though it is close to Austin as the crow flies, it is about an hour drive to anything in the city. We were surprised by that, but we loved our stay!

Wonderful family memories

Our kids loved the outdoor staircase and views of the lake. We had a great time as a family and had plenty of room to spread out. Highly recommend.

It was a fun home with beautiful views of the lake from both of the upper decks. Loved all the windows! It was clean and welcoming. I also appreciated the communication. We were very happy with our stay and would love to visit again in the future!

The Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The treehouse was AMAZING!! From the time we arrived til the day we left...AMAZING! The views are breath taking...the house was clean...Ms. Karen communicated throughout the entire process. I couldn't ask for more. All and everything that was listed on the website was present and available for our use. Me and my crew will for sure be back. Two happy and fun thumbs up to the treehouse at Point Venture in Lago Vista, TX!!

Relaxing Lake House for a get-away

  • 5 of 5

I organized a weekend get-away for a small group of friends to help celebrate our good friend's last remaining days as a bachelor. We chose this house because it had ample outdoor space for our group to hang out as well as sufficient bedrooms and beds to accommodate our crew. That said, this house was everything we expected and more. We had rainy weather, so we didn't get to spend too much time at the lake. That's where this house really shined. We ended up having the most relaxing weekend playing cards, drinking good local craft beers, and hanging out on the 3 story deck.

The owners were responsive and accommodating to our requests and took special care to make us feel comfortable and welcome. I will certainly look this place up again on my next trip to Lake Travis.
