About the property

1500 Sq Ft Apartment, 2 Bdrms, 1bath, Private Dock.

Come be our guest at peaceful and secluded Lighthouse Cove on Jackson Lake. Enjoy our 1500 sq ft full daylight basement apartment which is beautifully appointed, yet comfortable and homey. Our home was originally built as complete full size homes, up stairs and down.

Enjoy your own private driveway and entrance. The large screened porch allows for 3 season additional sleeping areas, now that's Glamping. With over 200 feet of gently sloping lake front tranquility, you will never want to leave. Peaceful is the number one comment of our guest.

Bring your boat, you have your own private dock as well as parking for your trailer. Or fish directly from the covered dock. Or you can grab a float and enjoy the cove. We especially enjoy watching everyone having tons of fun out on the lake. You will be amazed at the wild life at the lake. Watch bald eagles as they dive for dinner on the sand bar. Deer, Canadian geese, ducks, blue herons and beaver are a few of our feathered and furry friends.

The property is beautifully landscaped with many plants and flowers that always lure in the hummingbirds and many varieties of woodpeckers for the bird watchers. Make memories with smore's by the outdoor fire pit on those cool fall evenings. You will find a grill for your use in the fire pit area too.

No squabbling over the recliner! We have two very comfortable Lane recliners plus a sofa large enough for the entire family to curl up on for movies and popcorn. Both bedrooms and living room have sliding doors that open to the large screened porch for fantastic views to the lake. Your full size kitchen comes equipped with a glass top range, refrigerator, dishwasher, coffee maker, blender, microwave as well as dishes galore. Separate laundry room with washer, dryer and storage.

This property and home are completely handicap accessible, even the dock! Bedroom one has a queen size bed with comfy pillows, luxury linens and a great view! Bedroom two is geared more for the kids with a sleep sofa that doubles as a fun and game area during the day. The bathroom even has it's own makeup table.

For dining inside, we have a large hand decorated round dining table for six. The porch has a dining table with outdoor seating as well.

We have the perfect getaway for a girls retreat, a great place to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine with friends. Snowbirds enjoy a shorter drive than all the way to Florida, your own winter hide away in central Georgia. If you are into antiques and antebellum architecture you will enjoy the nearby towns of Covington, Madison, Social Circle and Monroe.

Atlanta is about an hour away. Take a day trip and enjoy the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, the High Museum of Art as well as Six Flags and White Water amusement parks. We are also about an hour from Macon Georgia where you may visit two of Georgia's Hall of Fames. The Georgia Music Hall Of Fame and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.

A relaxing place to stay during the Master's at Augusta National Golf Club or checkout a home game of the University of Georgia Bulldogs at Sanford Stadium in Athens Georgia. Athens has a great music scene too.

For additional charges you may host small events such as bridal showers, birthday parties, church gatherings, corporate and professional gatherings. Sabbatical Central! Write that book or just collect your thoughts.

About The Owner

My husband Bud and I purchased the property as a weekend getaway in 1987. In 1999 we built our home, which is actually two houses, one up and one down. Both of us have worked in the construction industry most of our lives. We are retired and wanted to share our lovely place with others. It's always a pleasure watching all the fun out on the lake. Can't wait for you to visit.

Pristine Setting on Lake Jackson, Georgia

  • 5 of 5

My visit was designed to spend time with my grand children 6 and 7 years old in a quiet setting on the lake to boat, fish, and do nothing but enjoy each other. We achieved all this and want to thank Yvonne and Bud for their gracious hosting, being attentive to all our odd ball needs and providing a clean, well maintained property. We will remember this time in our lives for years to come and will highly suggest this location to all my family members and friends to look at this property if they desire a peaceful setting on lake front property for a vacation.
