Lake House W/Private Beach

Covington, Georgia


This is a beautiful unique custom built home with lake views from every room in the house. It provides plenty of privacy and room for a large family or two families to stay together. There are 2 full dining tables that seat 6 each and bar that seats 5. All linens and bath towels are provided
We have a nice private beach that children love (adults too!). There is a shallow area with a nice sandy bottom for cooling off and playing in the water. There are short brick steps that lead down from the large patio for entertaining to the flat yard and beach. No hills or long stairs to climb!
The basement is partially finished with a sitting area, exercise equipment, and game tables.
We provide life jackets in many sizes, beach toys, plenty of lawn chairs, and umbrellas. Bring your fishing poles and fish from the yard or take the paddle boat out to fish. There is nice lawn and beach furniture for sunning and relaxing and a fire pit near the beach for marsh mellow roasting.
Rent a pontoon and cruise around the lake. Relax and tie up at the beach for swim.
Bring your bikes and go for a ride down our low traffic dead end road, or pull out the running shoes. Work out in the basement using the bow-flex, treadmill, and pull up bar. Enjoy views of the lake as you work off the calories!
The Fall has as much to offer as Spring and Summer. Enjoy the view as the sun shines making sparkling diamonds across the water. Cook on the grill and surrounded by colorful leaves and mild temperatures.

We are only 45 min. to Atlanta where you can enjoy nice dinners out, the Ga. Aquarium, Fox Theatre, High Museum, Six Flags, Ga. Botanical Gardens, World of Coca Cola, Stone Mtn. Park, and Underground Atlanta to list a few.

    My wife and I visited with 2 other couples and their children. All of the listed information and pictures were accurate. The house was very clean but make sure to bring typical house hold items like dish/ laundry detergent, paper towels, trash bags, and seasonings. We spent most of our time in the beautiful back yard grilling and enjoying the lake view. Would highly recommend this property for anyone looking to escape the city life and enjoy some peace and quiet.

    The house is beautiful. A little out dated and needs some deep cleaning and fresh paint. The lake view is amazing and the the weather was gorgeous! It needs a new washer and dryer, smart TV to get Netflix and new baking sheets. There was plenty of space for the six of us. It was quite and peaceful and with in an hour of several attractions.

    We had a group of 8 adults who stayed at the house and we loved it. The home was lovely and there was plenty of space so we never felt on top of each either. There were a ton of lake floats and chairs so we never had to worry or share items. The pool table and foseball were a great way to escape the summer heat when needed. The location was great we spent a lot of time floating in the lake. There is a Dollar General and Gas Station about 5 mins up the road which made it way to get last minute supplies we needed/forgot. We will be booking here again in the future for sure.

    We had a great stay at the Robinsons’ house! The house is a great size for a couple families to spread out. It sits on a perfect place on the lake, just off the main part of the lake but maintaining the big water views. The beach was perfect for our toddlers. Also, for those who have children, we liked the fact that the back porch did not have access to the back yard, so there was no worry about our kids being unattended or opening the porch door. The house is beautiful and several groups actually boated by and shouted their compliments. We can’t wait to return!

    After being self-quarantined for 2 months, we decided to rent a place by a lake to change scenery for a long weekend. We were simply overwhelmed with how beautiful this house is, how pristine its kept, how family friendly, accessible, yet away from civilization. And Wade (the owner) is very helpful and very gracious. That back yard with a dock and a private beach with actual sand is unbelievable! We stayed late every night outside around the fire pit and just enjoying the peace and quiet of Lake Jackson. We had no idea that lake was that large and yet not very crowded. Make no mistake, this place is heaven and we cannot wait to rent it again soon. We were a party of 8 and we were very comfortable and with enough room for everyone to have their own space! Loved it!!! The Salas Family

    We have young kids, and Wade’s house was a perfect place for a quick getaway on the lake. The beach was fun and safe for them to play on without getting knocked over by waves, and the yard was pristine! All of the beds were comfortable, and the house layout was more than enough room for our group of 4. The private driveway made for fun little walks around the property, which the kids loved. We would definitely stay at this house again!

    Absolutely the right choice for a family gathering. The home is even better in person than the listing photos. Very well stocked with anything you may need in the Kitchen, bathrooms and outdoors. Games to play, great books to read. Internet worked very well and the TV had more channel options than you will ever need. Lakeside view was remarkable and looking back at the home from the dock made for some family photos that are priceless. The area was extremely quite and peaceful. Great for early morning and evening walks. I could not think of a negative comment to say with this property. Very responsive host. You should feel at home at this lake house. Don’t think twice about your reservation, if you don’t enjoy this place, it’s your fault. Great stay and would reserve this home without question. Jerry & Susan Cowart.

    We spent Thanksgiving in the Lake House and enjoyed every minute of it. The house comfortably slept 3 families. We had plenty of room and lots to entertain kids (they loved the foosball table!). The lake was beautiful. We enjoyed paddling in the row boat, the geese flying past every afternoon, and making smores in the evening. We also celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Everyone enjoyed the trip. The house was perfect, and we'd love to go back!

    I have stayed at this property multiple times and have always had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this if you want a private lake getaway for friends or family. The home is very clean with plenty of fresh, white towels, household supplies (paper towels, etc.) It's literally been spotless each time we've arrived. We like that we can park inside of the spacious garage to load and unload. It's just a few steps from car to kitchen! I love that the kitchen and dining room and living room are open. It's nice to visit but also to easily get to snacks and beverages while watching football or visiting. The view from the porch is incredible. We saw herons sweeping through, crows flapping around and playing, and other migratory birds on their way south for the winter. There are plenty of rockers and chairs out there so you can rock the day away. The beds are very comfortable with high quality linens and fresh pillows. We love the double oven so that we could cook a few things at once. We love the view from the dining room table - you feel like you are floating on water. The yard is a beautiful sloping lawn to the lake with plenty of stairs and walkaways. I cannot recommend this property enough. It is such a great value and I will be returning, hopefully soon! If you want a peaceful, luxurious stay at the lake, this is for you!

    We have stayed at numerous VRBO’s and B&B’s. All, except this one, has had the same basic essentials. Coffee being one of those things. Shampoo, conditioner, soap, None of these were provided. We searched for an hour the first night just trying to find a grocery store to buy coffee to drink in the AM. No luck. Grocery stores not listed in the information book. Old appliances. Small TV. No extra pillows or blankets. Cheap linens. Although we paid a cleaning fee, beds had to be stripped and linens had to be placed in the laundry room, dishes had to be washed, dried, put away; garbage bagged; thermostat set to 80. There were a spider webs on windows with quarter sized spiders. Good thing we had no small children as we found pills on the floor (indicating that perhaps the cleaning person was not too thorough). Bedrooms are large but other than master bedroom the beds were full sized. We were 3 couples sharing a house. One couple actually took a room with 2 beds and slept separately because the bed was too small for both of them. Basement was not finished. It smelled musty. Overall, overpriced. This is the first VRBO that we would not return to.

    Perfect for any occasion.

    This home is fabulous! Even though we took everything but the kitchen sink, we didn't need to. It has it all!!! We couldn't get the car unloaded fast enough before my teen boys grabbed their fishing rods and the grand baby started stripping down to go swim. The home is every bit as beautiful as the pictures show and very well maintained (inside and out). My grand baby (4yr old) loved the the little beach. His favorite part was jumping off the retainer wall and being able to get out all by himself. It was especially nice to see my very busy husband kick back on a float and just relax. I would highly recommend this vacation home to everyone. You won't regret it!

    There were cockroaches, we had to leave the house at midnight

    Submitted Aug 27, 2017

    THE HOUSE HAD COCKROACHES! I killed one the second night, took pictures of 2 others that were scurrying in the family room and and left house on the second night at midnight, and had to move my family into a hotel. I immediately called Amy, the owner and left a message that we were leaving and to please call me on my cell to discuss. She never called me. Instead she emailed merge next day that what was in the pictures is not a cockroach, it's a Palmetto which I googled and is defined as: A cockroach species commonly called a “palmetto bug” is the American cockroach (Periplaneta Americana She also told me that she sent someone to the house the next day and didn't see anything (I also learned that they come out at night not during the day). To my surprise, the owner did not offer to refund me for the 2 nights we didn't stay there. Instead she said I should have stayed the night and given her a chance to fix the problem the next day. (Kind of hard to sleep in a home knowing it is infested with cockroaches). Instead, I had to ask her for a refund for the two nights we had to stay at the holiday inn express in Conyers, GA at my expense. She refused, and in the end she refunded me a portion only as a compromise. I replied again, asking her to please not nickel and dime me over a couple hundred dollars and simply give me a full refund. She never answered, never called me. At one point during the email exchange she said I must have let the cockroaches in the house when I opened the door as they are attracted to light (we arrived the first night around 11:30!pm and it was extremely dark out, even a little hard to find the house). So if you don't mind cockroaches, (I mean Palmetto's) the house is actually pretty nice and lake view is beautiful.

    The house was perfect, kid friendly, and clean. The kids loved the little beach area and smores in the fire pit. I loved the huge master shower that made getting the kiddos clean so easy! I wish the big bedroom above the garage wasn't so big or had more in it, but overall we'd definitely come again! Thank you for the great vacation getaway! There was a nice Kayak rental place nearby (Roth's wild adventures, also kid friendly) and some good food in Covington.

    It was perfect! Felt like a home away from home.

    We just got home from a week at this wonderful house. We had 5 adults and 3 preschoolers. The best part of this rental was the beach area for the preschoolers. They were also able to stand in the water on the lake side of the retaining wall for the beach. All of this area is sandy and not murky lake bottom. This is definitely a plus. Although it is in a cove, you have great views of the open water. Son-in-law did a lot of fishing off the retaining wall. A storm had knocked out the satellite box; owner was very attentive to getting this corrected. Communication with the owner was good from the very beginning. The basement is unfinished and it would have been nice to have a bathroom down there. Owner had several floats and lawn chairs available for our use. We brought our own lifejackets for the preschoolers. All in all this was a great vacation rental for our family. We hope to do it again soon.

    Loved it!

    Lovely Secluded Lake House Getaway

    Submitted Sep 7, 2016

    We have a retail family business in Melbourne, Florida. Our children have worked along side us for many years. I thought it would be nice this year to plan a family vacation in the mountains of Georgia and especially I was looking for direct access to a lake for us all to enjoy. The Robinson Lake home was perfect. There is various areas in and around the home for our family of 10 to spread out and enjoy some quiet moments by ourselves. This large spacious home and property was exactly what I was looking for. The home is immaculate and very comfortable. Besides an extra large frying pan for our large family breakfasts we had everything we needed. The home is situated on Jackson Lake approximately 500' from the main waterway. You can fish or swim off the back yards retaining wall or go into the water from the beach area. We rented a Ponton Boat from Jackson Lake Marina for two days during our stay. We were able to tie off the boat overnight to the trees. They even gave us a large tube to use. Everyone had a ball tubing. The Robinsons had ski's there but we figured out if there are more then three in the pontoon boat you can't get enough power to get your skier up. Jackson lake is pretty large with many inlets that showcase lovely homes. The Robinson home is surely in the top 10 of beautiful homes that line the shoreline. The property is secluded from the neighboring homes. It was very peaceful and serene. My daughter- inlaw swears one night she seen a small cub scurrying about the property? If you rent this home expect to be off the grid while you're there. Occasionally we were able to get a signal at the end of the driveway or near the metal shed, if that doesn't work travel 10-15 miles down the mountain to get a connection. Being my children were all with me I didn't worry about them too much. I was worried more about my 83 year old Mom who I like to check on frequently. I also worried if someone got hurt how would we call for help? A local landline or yes WiFi is definitely needed in case of emergencies. We stayed 8 days and made several trips down the moutain to shop. Unfortunately the frigerator down stairs didn't work so we used our coolers for drinks. Overall we had a wonderful much needed retreat away from our everyday hectic lives. We certainly made some great memories. It was hard to leave! Thank you Amy for sharing your beautiful home. Kindest Regards, Lisa

    We enjoyed our stay very much, the house is in a great location of the lake area. The only problems we had were the upstairs a/c was not cooling very well when we got there, but the owner had someone there first thing the next morning. Then we encountered a severe storm which knocked the power out for 12 hours on Friday night and for 4 hours Sunday/Monday morning. Which a tree also fell on the house during the storm. A crew was there the very next day to clean up the grounds and temporary repair the damage to the side of the house. But other than that our stay was great. Most of us never left the house once we arrived. We did all our cooking on the grill outside. The house was very clean and well maintained also the grounds are very well groomed and cut but, I would suggest a dock. I would recommend this property to anyone.

    This is our second year renting this property and we absolutely love it. We shared it with another family so there are usually 10 of us. There is plenty of room for everyone. My favorite part is morning coffee on the porch overlooking the lake. The little sandy beach area is perfect for getting in and out of the water with our floats. Boat rental prices in the area are very affordable and we rented one for the day. The kids had a blast. We are already looking forward to next year. 😊

    My husband and I rented this large, beautiful home to celebrate our birthdays over Memorial Day weekend. We had 2 other couples join us plus our 5 year old grandson. We happen to have friends who own the house next door (with a boat!) which was perfect! The house is decorated very nicely with plenty of places to lounge and to have meals. The veranda on the back of the house with the rocking chairs was our favorite place (faced the lake). The yard is lovely - a large flat surface for kids to play in the grass right near the water. The beds were comfy and the lake, if you've never been, is just gorgeous. Much smaller, and less busy, than Lanier or Allatoona (which to us is a wonderful thing!) Just a note if you've never rented a house for a vacation before. The house comes with dishes, pots and pans, silverware and other kitchen essentials, and also towels. You need to bring toilet tissue, paper towels, garbage bags, dishwasher detergent, washing machine detergent, soap (for showers) and possibly soap for some bathrooms, Ziploc bags, plastic containers, paper plates, etc. (if you are going to eat there a lot which we did). There is a small amount of the first 4 things I listed, but, having never rented a house before, I just really didn't realize what all you actually need! :-) It does not detract from the house, you just need to know this if you've never rented a house before (and the store is not right around the corner.) We plan on renting this house again for a long weekend in the summer! Simply lovely! Pam

    Amazing Weekend for our Georgia Southern reunion!

    Submitted Jul 31, 2015

    We are graduates of Georgia Southern and have moved our separate ways, starting careers and families. We chose this home because it was a central location for everyone. The home was absolutely amazing! The pictures do not do it justice and like other people have said, the beach was certainly the highlight of the trip. It has a nice sandy, shallow area, which the kids loved. I have no complaints at all about this home. No, there was no wi-fi, but after the initial shock, we realized that people could actually enjoy themselves without wi-fi....it is called playing. And honestly, when you are on vacation, it is nice not to see everyone on their devices, because the whole point of us going was to spend time together. We would definitely recommend this home and would love to stay here again! Perfect weekend!!

    We had an amazing 4th of July weekend at this home. The home is beautiful with awesome lake access with a private beach - perfect for kids! Plenty of space and the basement is loaded with lake floats and toys. What I would tell future renters to be aware of is the water pressure was an issue all weekend. We didn't exceed 500 gallons but the water pressure in the showers was constantly weak. They also have a 4 bag of trash maximum which meant we had to haul our own trash away. Also no wifi was a bummer.

We were a party of four families and we had plenty of space to enjoy the house but never felt like it was too much space where we couldn't find one another. Loved the private beach and the balcony.

    We decided to stray from our usual spring break destination to the beach and instead chose this beautiful home to spend our week together. We docked a boat a Berry's Marina just not half a mile from the house and spent most of the time fishing and tubing with our teenage girls. Everyone had a blast and our only regret was we had to leave on Sunday. Beautiful home with all the amenities, awesome property on the lake. We will definitely be back, possibly this Fall break.

    This lake house was perfect for our family reunion over Labor Day weekend! Immaculate, very spacious, beautifully decorated / furnished, and comfortable. The description and photos were accurate (if anything, the house is nicer and larger than it appears in the photos). The things we enjoyed most were: nice covered lakefront deck off of the living room with log rocking chairs and ceiling fans; fantastic private white sand beach (plus a good supply of floats and other beach toys); plenty of outdoor furniture; very inviting gathering spots (living room, deck, patio, beach, and breakfast bar/cocktail bar, etc...); wonderful master bathroom with separate toilet room and gorgeous stone-tile shower w/ two shower heads (loved it!); plenty of towels for everyone; and the lake views everywhere. The owner was responsive and pleasant to deal with, and the rental procedure / access to the house was flawless. This house was the perfect place for us to re-connect, enjoy the lake and create new memories. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this house!

    I always wanted to bring my family to Lake Jackson after a one day visit 2 years ago. We were a group of 13 ( 5 adults and kids ranging from ages of 9 to 16. This property is simply amazing! The location was perfect; private but easily accessible from everywhere.We all spent hours in the water and had so much fun! The house has everything anyone can need to feel like home.We never felt crowded;plenty of space for everyone.The owner responded to my emails quickly; reservation, check in and check out processes were a breeze!! Next year we will have to rent a couple of properties because there are so many of my friends and family members that now want to go to Lake Jackson. And this house will certainly be one of them. Thanks for an amazing weekend!
