Karen Johnson purchased this House Boat in 2014
Why Karen Johnson chose Yellow Creek
There nothing like been on the water, my husband knows this lake very well he has fished ,and hunted this lake since he was a little boy, sometimes it feels like a little piece of heaven.
What makes this House Boat unique

The best place in the world
Fontana Lake is nothing short of an untouched paradise, and this boat is a perfect way to enjoy that. The boat is surprisingly more stocked than any other cabin I have ever been to - it has multiple extra sheets, pillows, has a modestly stocked pantry/kitchen, and the list could go on. The boat was extremely clean and well maintained. It appears to have had an update inside within the past few years. You might think it would feel cramped inside a boat with six people, but with two side docks, a front deck, back deck, and top deck you can actually wind up losing people!
Karen and Harold really took care of the lot of six of us this vacation, and they for sure will be having future guests at their property!
Loved The Boathouse Living
My wife, son and his friend and I stayed at "Just a Floating" for four nights in early June and love it! My wife and son normally get motion sickness and did not have any problems. The boat was very clean and well equipped.The beds were very comfortable. The slide was great! The kids enjoyed playing on the paddleboard. Sitting up top watching the stars at night was a perfect end to the night. Fontana Lake is absolutely beautiful. You are surrounded by mountains everywhere you go. The lake was very serene and not crowded. Fishing was good.
Karen was great and very accomodating. We really enjoyed the early check in and late check out. (We didn't have a pet.) This was a great family vacation with lifelong memories.

Just wanted to say what an awesome time our family had on the house boat. This rental is so great! The Johnsons are such nice folks, and the houseboat is awesome. Not only a beautiful boat but super clean with all the comforts of home. The lake was so beautiful even through we didn't catch any fish. Ha! This is a slice of heaven on the water.
Loved, loved, loved this place!
My husband & I spent his birthday weekend on this houseboat. The houseboat has everything you could possibly want and Karen & Harold are the most hospitable people! We enjoyed the beautiful scenery, took a tour around the lake, grilled every nite, fished right of the boat in deep water and had plenty of room to move around with the huge decks the owners have attached to the houseboat. We were there when the colors were just beginning to change and the nites were cool...woke up each morning in fog- which soon burned off, our own little blanket of peace! Kitchen is well stocked, bed is super comfortable, satellite tv provided, very clean and inviting...also Wi-Fi for those who can't wait to get those vacation pictures on Facebook! We will definitely return at first chance!
Thank you for choosing our houseboat, we hope to see you back real soon,you left the houseboat in great shape, Thank you for the awesome review. :)
Awesome houseboat! We had such a wonderful time!
My husband and I loved our stay! It was my birthday and we rode the jet skis for hours looking at the majestic scenery. The Mountains are beautiful to look at and the lake water is so crystal clear. Everything you need and more is there. Karen and Harold are great to work with. We can't wait to go again.
best place ever!!
My family can not even begin to tell people how great this vacaction was. This house boat was just heaven. Everything was so super clean and you literally don't have to take anything but your clothes. They provide everything from the snacks to the clean bedsheets. My 2 boys swam and did kayaks they provided and they enjoyed the slide. We will defintely be returning again.
