About Larry Wiley

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.

Larry Wiley purchased this house in 2005

Why Larry Wiley chose Coalmont

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Unlike any rental we have ever stayed at. We feel as if we were visitors in your home with the fresh cut flowers and great muffins. Thanks Pam. We came with the intentions of hiking and taking pictures of waterfalls in the area, after arriving @ The Beautiful House at Lakeshore we didn't need to go anywhere else. Pam, the house is so pretty with antique furniture and décor. We were comfortable no matter where we were especially on the most amazing deck. B

Having fun with Gus the baby donkey.

VRBO Bear stayed here

Mar 15, 2013

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.

Perfect place for extended family get together.

  • 5 of 5

Beginning in 2011 our family of 10 (the two of us, and our 2 daughters with their husbands and children) have counted this as our home for several days each October. Every house has a personality and this one speaks of home, comfort, rest, and love. Larry and Pam continue to be host that are genuinely interested in making sure we have everything we need and anything reasonable that we could want for our family to enjoy this time together.

The size of the property ensures privacy; the lake, farm animals and recreational games provide ample opportunity for children and youth to entertain themselves; and the beauty of the area invites adults to simply relax and unwind from the demands of todays world.

If you need to get out and see nature, there are numerous trails, water falls and vistas to look at and enjoy within a few minutes drive. If you need to "come apart" before you "come apart" I can think of no better place.

Beautiful, clean, well-kept property!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay here! The whole property is well-kept and beautiful! The house was very clean and inviting and had everything needed to feel like home.

We enjoyed having the paddle boat, kayaks and canoe available to use on the lake. The nearby waterfalls were easy to access and well worth the hike!

There were several good eateries within a half hour drive from the property!

We hope to come back again! It was a relaxing vacation!

Beautiful home, and wonderful hosts!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the House at Lakeshore was one of the best home rentals we have experienced. We had a small mens retreat in this home and it exceeded or expectations. Larry was attentive, and even came by and chatted with the guys one afternoon. The lake is amazing and the porches on this home were a hit with the guys. I want to thank Larry and his lovely wife for providing us with true excellence. I would recommend this rental without hesitation.

A fantastic location for a moms' retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of moms takes a trip each year to an area within a short drive of Nashville and are always looking for a new place to stay. This is by far the best location we've been to in 11 years! The house is SO very clean and there is ample seating both inside and out. We were even able to all squeeze around the dining room table for dinners. We visited nearby Greeter Falls, spent an entire day sunning on the pier and used the kayaks, paddleboat, and canoe on the pristine lake. We spent some time in the evening in the sparkling clean hot tub. The paved driveway was a bonus! We will definitely be back next year if the house is available. The Wileys were always availabe for questions or issues.

Better than I even imagined! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Larry is the perfect host. His home is even better in person than on the website! The donkeys were so sweet and my daughter wants one now! The hot tub and the kayaks/paddle boat were a hit too! No need to go anywhere but if you do, there are gorgeous waterfalls very close by.

Ideal house for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Lovely, well-maintained home on lake. We occupied the 4 sizeable bedrooms, but didn't need the pull-out sofa. The Wiley's are wonderful hosts, and went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. They even brought over some extra cooking equipment from their own home for a dish we wished to make. Plenty of things to do at the house, from playing on the lake (kayaks and canoe provided), to playing in the walk-out basement, which has sitting areas, games tables, and even a ping pong table. There are also state parks nearby that have waterfalls, swimming holes, hiking trails. The Wileys' hospitality and thoughtfulness helped make a beautiful home into a memorable vacation.
