Tiltn Hiltn is a lakefront property, located on beautiful Norris Lake, with plenty of room to accommodate all of your family and friends.
Nice, clean, very convenient being a short walk to the marina, superb, friendly and accommodating workers and management. Had a wonderful time. Dock steps and climb was a little sketchy with water being low but usable and being this time of year expected. Could not ask for better service and friendly staff, which in my book gets you guys the five stars!
Excellent location! Great condition of house.stairs and the dock need some TLC. Recommend to get to the water to go to the boat ramp, especially if you have kids as the stairs aren't connected to the dock. The boat ramp is not far at all (or could drive too)Recommend having a book for renters to advise of location of things in the house (like remotes for TVs) and stuff around the area, check-out policies etc. Also recommend added some staples to the kitchen like different pots and pans for cooking, paper towels, etc. TV in bunk room needs looked at color was funky. Proximity to marina was awesome (which came in handy for wifi and ice runs). Boat rented for marina was gorgeous! Definitely recommend this property.
First, let me start by saying the house was beautiful. However, when we first arrived around 6pm on our check in date (07/04), the house was not cleaned from the renters prior to us. In addition to the house not being cleaned before we got there, someone had turned the air off. Needless to say, it was a very hot and humid day (90's).
We had gone to the grocery store and had lots of food that needed to be refrigerated as soon as possible, but because I was so furious about the house not being cleaned and the air being off, I made my way down to the dock to express my anger as I/we were very upset, so the food had to wait. The clerk at the dock called the owner right away, and had someone out within 15 minutes. I am normally not a complainer, but we were looking forward to a nice and relaxing time at the house and when I saw the house not being cleaned and the air turned "off", on top of being very hot and humid, I/we were very upset when we arrived at the house.
The stairs down to the lake was not an issue, however when trying to get to the platform from the edge of the stairs was a nightmare. If we wanted to go down or climb Mount Everest, we would have gone to the mountains. My Grandson and my husband both fell trying to get down to the platform, after going down the stairs. We understand that the water was down, but you really need to think about getting/building a stair "extension" to the platform when this happens to keep your renters safe.
With all of this being said, the cable did not work. One night, one room would have cable, but none of the others would. We have three grandchildren who like to watch TV, but it was almost impossible to watch TV in the same room every night.
We did enjoy the lake, but after being out on the lake all day and then have to climb "Mount Everest", it was not pleasant at all.
You do have a beautiful home, but I think you really need to put some thought into the stairway at the bottom to get to the platform and to ensure that the house is cleaned and air is on for your renters to enjoy a relaxing time at the lake.
7 of us including kids recently stayed 3 nights at this lake home. The home was actually very nice, clean, and super close to the marina/boat slip. However, upon our arrival we had no cable in any of the bedrooms. We were told more than once "someone would be up to fix it" however it took multiple calls for that to actually happen. The owner was rude and definitely kept giving us the run around. He also stated "I never promised you cable." Really? We paid good money to stay here, I expect to have a working TV. When someone finally did come up to fix the satellite dish he was clueless - it took my husband getting on the phone with Direct TV to finally get it fixed, which wasn't until the end of day 2 of our stay. Also- the swim dock in front on the house is almost impossible to get to. I almost broke my neck and cut my foot trying to get down to it. The stairs are very shady and are not connected to the swim dock. You have to climb down rocks and dirt and definitely not kid friendly. Although we had a great time on the lake- I'm pretty sure we unfortunately won't be back.
The house was comfortable, clean and updated. Great space to get together with friends for the holidays. Beds were comfortable too!
Recommend this place to anyone seeking a fun filled lake vacation. The staff at the marina was very kind and helpful. I would rate staff members of the marina 10 out of 10. Thank you Whitman hollow marina for the great time.
