About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + 1 Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, plus air mattress if needed

Our beautiful home has a fresh new look as of January 2016. Your quarter mile paved drive down the scenic driveway leading to the Lake House is only the beginning to your incredible stay in this welcoming home. The House at Lakeshore is a beautiful lake front home with approximately 3000 square feet and large deck overlooking the lake. The deck is equipped with a partially glassed outdoor dining area, gas grill, outdoor Jacuzzi hot tub and comfortable patio furniture for relaxing your day away. This retreat home has breathtaking, wide open views across the lake. If you enjoy fishing be sure to bring your gear or boat with trolling motor. (no gas powered motors) A paddle boat ride will help you explore the lake (bring your own life jackets if you can't swim). Each season offers its own unique beauty for your relaxing getaway.

The master bedroom has an incredible view of the lake through six foot wide glass doors with a hot tub just outside for your enjoyment. The house is two stories with living rooms and bedrooms on each floor. There are two full baths upstairs with walk in shower and built in benches and one full bath lower level with walk in shower and a jetted tub for relaxing your cares away. The kitchen is fully equipped with an eat in bar and opens to the dining room. No matter where you dine, each area has a front row seat to the amazing lake views. Those romantic candlelit dinners could be topped off by a glorious sunset! In addition, there is a front load washer and dryer just off the kitchen for your convenience.

The House at Lakeshore offers something for each family member, several board games, cornhole, foosball, ping pong, lots of movies with a wide selection of Disney for the youngsters. Free WiFi and cable are also available as well as library/office combination for some quiet reading time. Off the downstairs living room there is a private sitting area outside with a peaceful wicker swing overlooking the lake.

The House at Lakeshore was fully remodeled in 2010 with the completion in January 2011. Updated Jan 2014 with the third bathroom lower level. Fresh new look and decor in 2016. It is beautiful. Included in the remodel are new granite counter tops, red oak hardwood floors and lovely tiled kitchen and bathrooms.

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 Tennessee

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

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

One of our best overall experiences in a VRBO. Communication with the owner was prompt and he was incredibly helpful when we had a problem with our car. He went above and beyond the call of duty to help us resolve the problem quickly. The property itself exceeded our expectations. Plenty of room inside and out to spread out and relax. Would be perfect for a couple of families or great for a weekend away with friends. Excellent hiking nearby and fabulous restaurants in Sewanee. We'll definitely be back!

Right out of a magazine!

  • 5 of 5

The property was more than expected. House beautifully decorated on inside with bathrooms out of a magazine. House was very large with more than enough space for us. Kitchen was well equipped, which was great since we stayed in & cooked. The large back deck was a focal point for us, with outside dining area on one end & hot tub on the other. Rockers & comfortable furniture in between. The girls, 8 & 10, loved spending time with the goats & the donkeys. The owners, Larry & Pam were very gracious & attentive. It was evident they were proud of their property & had spent countless hours working on it. They also live across the lake & were readily available, if needed. We will come back in the future, anxious to experience it in the summer, with the lake.

Jewel on the Plateau

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Pam's Lake House was the perfect get-away for our family Christmas/New Year's gathering. The home is impeccable , beautifully furnished, and met our every need. Knowing it was Christmas event, Pam kept the Christmas decorations in the house - such a nice touch! We had some cold days, but that didn't keep us from enjoying lake canoeing and hiking nearby, and of course, there were some fierce ping pong games downstairs - a great family gathering space. The country setting and animals were just the tonic for our city weary life! We prepared some masterful dinners in the well-stocked kitchen with two refrigerators (that was super handy), and we all slept well in the comfortable beds with quality linens. Did I mention the great lake view? Wow! Stunning! I can't say enough great things about our host. From our first contact, Larry and Pam were communicative and helpful - just good, good folks. I hope we can return again to this lake house jewel on the plateau.

Family memories!!

  • 5 of 5

We live in Florida and we met up with my other 2 sisters and their families from Wisconsin to this beautiful home for Thanksgiving. With 6 adults and 9 children, there was plenty of room for everyone. We arrived to see the donkeys and goats, which the kids fed every morning. The home was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed to make a Thanksgiving meal for our big family!! The property was beautiful!! The kids enjoyed the lake and the hammacks, but mostly the opportunity to play and run outside. We all had made great memories and will remember this vacation for years to come!!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home & location.

Our 6-guy prayer retreat had as perfect an experience as we could imagine.

The hosts were responsive and warm.

The home was spotless ... spacious ... inviting.

The lake is so tranquil and quiet and peaceful - great for a calm kayak or canoe excursion.

Would give this property the highest recommendation.

Best weekend getaway in a long long time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful property over a weekend. We have stayed at several vacation homes in past years and I can say this is the best property I have ever stayed. The owner, Larry and his wife Pam are very friendly, they received us at the property as we pulled over and showed us around. Pam had freshly baked blueberry muffins for us. They even had water bottle case in refrigerator for us to use, a small gesture but not many do that. My point is they are not your regular owner property owners who you’d probably never meet, they are very nice couple and go out of their way to make their guests experience memorable.

Property is on the Lakeshore, they make paddle boats, kayaks available for use. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor games available for both kids and adults. They have goats and donkeys for kids to pet and feed. There is so much to do there that we changed our plan to visit Chattanooga and rather stayed at the property through out our rental.

Everyone in our group had lots of fun here and we plan to come back in future. I highly recommend this rental if you plan to visit this part of the world.
