VRBO Bear stayed here:
I needed a vacation to ease me out of a long winter of hibernation. I was looking for a place with lots of access to nature, near a lake full of fish and geese; a place where I could relax and ease into spring. Boy, did I find the perfect place in Southeast Tennessee at the House on Lakeshore. I was impressed by the information I found on line for this VRBO listing.
When I got there, I was even more impressed. I was greeted with a basket full of fresh baked blueberry and poppy seed muffins, a breakfast starter kit, and some bathing essentials. The blueberry muffins were made with blueberries that came from the property and were delicious.
After settling in the very spacious two story lake house, I noticed there were incredible views of the lake from the master bedroom, kitchen, and an expansive back porch. The front porch has a great view of the fenced in goats and donkeys that reside on the property. Every bed was comfortable and relaxing. We enjoyed sleeping in every morning and waking to the calls of geese as they swooped in to land in the lake each morning.
I spent several mornings fishing off the pier on the property and then ventured into the lake on one of two paddle boats. Exploring the lake was a blast and also good exercise. Several days were spent doing nature hikes in the area. There were falls and creeks to explore as well as cliffs to climb, and photos to take of the amazing geography. Every evening I took advantage of the warm hot tub on the back deck as well as grilling up some choice entrees for dinner on the outdoor grill.
When I wanted to play games, I had my choice of ping pong, foosball, corn hole, various board games, and checkers. When I wanted to kick back and relax, I had a hammock, porch swing, a nice selection of movies and several TVs to choose from. I also had access to a fully equipped kitchen and the nearby towns had nice restaurants and grocery stores to make this feel like home.
I was so refreshed after my time here and would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to relax and get away. It is especially good for reunions, family vacations, couples getaway, etc. I would love to come back and visit again one day and finish seeing the rest of the surrounding countryside in this beautiful part of the Cumberland Plateau.

About the owner: My wife Pam and I, own and manage the property. I am a Doctor of Pharmacy and owner of Wiley’s Pharmacy in Altamont, Tennessee. Pam owns Tin Roof, (a Primitives and Antique Gift Shop.) Located inside the pharmacy in Altamont, TN. I have lived in this area all my life with the exception of College years. My personal residence is on the lake as well, so I am available to answer with knowledge most of your questions about this beautiful area I call home. I am involved with mission work here at home and in other countries including Guatemala, Haiti, Mexico, Africa, Europe, and Israel and enjoy exploring this great nation America every chance I get. I must add though even with my extensive travels there is no place like the simplistic beauty and peaceful living this area affords. It allows me the opportunity to enjoy my passion for fishing, hiking and golfing. Living in the midst of Tennessee State and National Parks is a blessing. Just Google the Cumberland Plateau to find out about this amazing area. I have three grown children and two grandchildren. I raised exotic animals for years including Zebra’s, black face sheep, Z-donks, Llamas, goats, donkeys and white fallow deer. I am a committed Christian and am very active in my church. My goals are simple in this season of my life: •Work Hard •Play More Often •Enjoy Life Daily.
Why the Owner Chose Coalmont, TN, USA:
I chose this property so I could share my love for this area with others. Our lake house is one of the best kept secrets in the area. Having a private, fenced in, twenty three acre home on Big Creek Lake (73 acre lake) is a jewel. People that come up for a visit want to move here because of all the beauty, wildlife and just a relaxed environment to share with their family. Mountain living but with the option of fine dining, exploring the National Parks or flea market shopping. Going into the city of Chattanooga or Nashville for the day enjoying the local culture and museums is also an option. I believe this retreat is a getaway families will enjoy together through all the activities available, the modern amenities and just the ability to sit and listen to the music of nature whether it is the wind whispering through the trees or the geese letting you know they are about to land on the lake. The House at Lakeshore just keeps it simple in a very hectic world. Simple is good.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I believe one of the unique benefits of the lake house is the quiet. There is a peaceful calm and serenity here that’s priceless! Fresh air, rejuvenation and the enjoyment of nature are a few things that come to mind when I think of lakeside living. This is Mountain Life at its Finest!
