About George Coates

My family discovered that boating kept the children coming home, and so we've been boaters for over 20 years! Our permanent residence is in southern Ohio, but we travel to TN often, because we love the mountains and the abundant, beautiful lakes. Our large family includes grandchildren now, and our hope is that they will learn to love the mountains and become natural in the water much like their parents, our children!

George Coates purchased this house in 2003

Why George Coates chose Tennessee

If you like boating and golf, Norris Lake is the perfect lake, and our house is the perfect place. We've been coming to Norris Lake since 1996 - it is considered the largest and cleanest of the TVA lakes, with approx. 125 miles in length and 850 miles of shoreline, and so we spend up to 2 weeks each summer, and multiple long weekends here with our families and friends. But, due to its beauty, Norris can get crowded, which caused us to do some research as we searched for the perfect spot to buy property and build. Our house is on Woodlake Golf Course, which is the southeastern side of Norris - here, the boating crowds are non-existent, so you can pull out of the docks and find calm, deep water in minutes. . .with very little boat traffic. Lots of coves and small creeks to hideaway, or 23+ marinas for fuel, food and drink! My sister travels here annually from San Diego, and because her photos only show us on the water; her friends think this is our 'private lake'!

Woodlake Golf Course is a beautiful 18-hole mountain course, with multiple tees to challenge any level of golfer. The links-style course has undulating fairways, bent grass, and plenty of sand and water to make you adjust your swing direction. . .The newly remodeled clubhouse has a hotel, lounge and weekend restaurant that everyone raves about.

Across the street from our house are the community tennis courts and pool - our guests have access to these during their stay. The boat slips are located within the community, less than 1 mile away - there you will find a large Gazebo for family picnicking, a boat launch and the slips - we own 2, and access and use are included with your rental.

Mr Coates is wonderful to work with. His home was clean and so inviting. The pool across the street, which is open during certain times of the year, was a great plus. We had a large group and e dry one enjoyed their stay!

Beautiful home. Perfect for larger groups. Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of lady golfers had a wonderful retreat in this beautiful home on a well maintained golf course. Fully equipped with everything we needed, except maybe a hot tub we could all enjoy together after rounds of golf(maybe you could think of adding this next since you already have everything else LOL). Having access to the community pool was a plus. Your attention to detail was perfect. Great place for a large group to have a wonderful time. Thanks for making it special. Hope to return soon!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay! The owners are easy to work with. Communication was no problem. Security deposit was returned in a timely fashion. Checked in with us via text message during the week to be sure everything was okay. The house has plenty of room - there were 22 of us - 4 families - 8 adults and 14 kids ranging from a newborn to a 15 year old. Kitchen was nicely stocked and had everything we needed - including a crock pot. The two fridges (one upstairs and one downstairs) was a plus for our group size. House was clean and well maintained. The master bedroom on the main level is huge and the bathroom - all I can say is WOW! No room in the garage for your vehicle, but it was nice to keep the golf clubs and fishing gear in there. We had no problem parking all 4 of our vans in the driveway (and one was a multi-passenger van). The upstairs bonus room is a really nice size. The family that had the newborn baby stayed up there and it was nice and private for them. The downstairs master bedroom is also huge! There is a room with a twin bed in the master suite (has it's own door, but you have to enter the master bedroom to get into it). A bonus of the location of this house is the tennis courts and pool is directly across from the house. Just walk right over. Don't be worried that it is too noisy because it is close - there was no issue with this. Club house is right there also. Eat dinner one night at the steakhouse and get the steak on a stone!!! (Only open weekends, so plan accordingly.) Beautiful area.

Great for family reunions

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house was a great location to host a family reunion. My family of 19 spent ten nights together for Christmas and New Years in this very spacious house. My first thought when we walked in was "The pictures did not do it justice." It is incredibly roomy with 7 rooms and 5 bathrooms we had all the space we needed. The entertainment in the basement was great for both kids and adults: fooseball table, ping-pong and billiards. the house was very clean. George was great communicating what to expect along with what we could do in the area. He even left a Christmas tree set up for us. The community the house is in is wonderful, the tennis court is literally in front of the house and there is a great golf course. The lake is beautiful even during the winter when we were there.

Thanks for everything George!

Absolutely Awesome

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this beautiful property on 2 consecutive years in the past for our family's reunion. The pictures do not do it justice!! It is very spacious and accommodating and offers more than the comforts of home!! All you really have to bring is yourself and your personal belongings--everything else is there for your use.. Not only is beautiful inside, but there is much to do outside. The golf course and clubhouse are right there and great. The pool and tennis courts are well kept and just across from the driveway. It has plenty of parking available and restaurants and Gatlinburg are reasonably close. We will be back this year and have already booked for the first week in June 2015. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Coates for allowing us the use of your lovely home!

We rented the home both in 2008 and 2009
