    We always hope that a weekend getaway will be all that we want it to be, and so often we are so disappointed. But, not this time!! Mr. Jackson is more than a host. He is the definition of Southern hospitality!! The amenities provided were more than we ever expected. We were given open privilege to use the dock and the water toys. We enjoyed watching all the water vessels as they traveled the lake. It was great, and we will return for another stay! Thank you, Mr. Jackson it was a wonderful weekend!!

    Staying at the boat house was way better than we could even imagine! We chose to vacation in Covington for spring break because of The Vampire Diaries filming locations. I love that we were able to diversify our trip by staying at Jackson Lake. All of the included amenities and the hospitality by David made our stay even more worthwhile. Our kids loved swimming in the lake and we introduced them to kayaking thanks to the included kayaks and life vests! We made use of the Keurig, towels, linens, dock lights, blue tooth speaker and fire pit too! We also visited High Falls, Indian Springs, and Dauset Trails that were all close by. This boat house was the perfect location and price range that we were looking for! We definitely recommend and will keep in mind for future stays!

    The property was clean and comfortable and the owner went above and beyond, meeting me when I was 2 hours late to check in, making sure I got checked in safely. The neighborhood is quiet, the view from the porch is pretty. It was the perfect quiet retreat.

    The boathouse is beautiful. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We spent every evening on the dock, enjoying the lake and boaters passing by. On our last evening, we had an extra special treat as David, the owner, spent some time visiting with us. The boathouse was very clean, comfortable and spacious even though it is an efficiency. There was plenty of room for my husband and I to enjoy our visit. The bed was also comfortable and we both slept well which is not always the case when we sleep away from home. For a couple of our meals, we enjoyed Frank's which is very close to the property. We also enjoyed a short drive to visit Indian Springs park, Dauset trails (an animal preserve) and Yahola Creek Restaurant - we highly recommend all three. We spent one of our mornings walking around downtown Covington, a 40 min drive from the boathouse. This little town is so cute and had several great places to grab a bite, including a very neat bistro (Bread and Butter Cafe) where we enjoyed a smoothie and a coffee (they have amazing scones). We will definitely be back to enjoy this property as soon as we get the chance. Perhaps in the late spring when we can get out and enjoy the lake more. David has kayaks and a paddle boat available to his guests which we definitely intend to use on our next visit. Thank you, David, for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home. We can't wait to get back soon.

    We enjoyed our stay!

    This was our second time staying at David's Boathouse on Jackson Lake. The efficiency apartment in the Boathouse is just ideal for my wife and me. Fall is such a great time to relax on the dock or utilize the paddle boat or kayaks available. We will be back, for sure.

    The Boathouse is a neat little efficiency apartment with balcony deck overlooking the lake. Everything was clean and tidy. We especially enjoyed the dock in the evenings for cocktails and ate lunch there each day. David, the host/owner was most hospitable and accommodating. We will definitely go back.

    This place is beautiful. It’s very relaxing with the lush, green lawn and beautiful flowers. The owner has a good eye for landscaping which I appreciate very much. The efficiency over the boathouse is spotless and nicely decorated. We spent most of our time on the dock which became our “living space”. There was plenty of seating to kick back and relax in. We enjoyed the kayaks, floats, and paddle boat which were made available by the owner. We jumped off the dock and swam to our hearts’ content. Our group made some excellent memories and hated to leave (which lets you know we enjoyed our stay very much). The owner, David, was very helpful. He was quick to respond to questions. I appreciated that he was close by if we needed him. I highly recommend this lovely, lakefront efficiency.

    Beautiful property!

    We were heading in on Friday evening and heading back out early Saturday morning to an equestrian event in Mansfield, so we didn't have the time to fully enjoy your delightful boathouse. Wished we had had time to read out on the dock or sit by a fire by the lake. Thanks for sharing, Bill and Alison Ibsen
