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 Tazewell
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.

Great house and location for a large family. Home was neat and had plenty of space in and out. Close to golf, tennis, pool and lake. Two boat slips. Very convenient. Owners stayed in touch and were very kind and helpful. Would do it again!
Great Girl's Golf Trip
The house fit us well with plenty of room to spread out.
The home was beautiful, spacious, and in good condition. Each family had a wonderful time!
Our group had a wonderful time staying at this location! The layout is great for multiple couples or families. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. The views of the golf course are very nice, and there are wonderful outdoor decks to enjoy the outdoors. Inside the house, there are multiple spaces to gather and share good times.
Excellent house with lots of room in a beautiful area.
Beautiful house. Lots of hot water and the air conditioner works great. Very quiet area in the middle of the golf course. The boat dock and the lake are really nice. All the amenities made the stay very relaxing and entertaining. I recommend this place for large gatherings in a peaceful setting.
Great house and location
The house was great space and location. Towels provided were lacking in quality and quantity for 16 people. A few of the mattresses were disappointing, especially in the bunk bedroom downstairs. Garbage pickup was on Thursday, not Wednesday as we were told. We hauled all the garbage off Thursday morning then saw the garbage truck picking up. We were told checkout was at 11. Cleaners showed up at 10 saying checkout was at 10.
Thank you for the response. I did error in my feedback regarding the house trash pick-up date; this has been corrected to Thursday in our welcome letter. Check-out has always been 10a, so we'll need to review the old contract shown on VRBO and ensure it's accurate; we'll also add this to the welcome letter to ensure no confusion with our guests. We continually and annually purchase new towels for the house (again this spring), so not sure why they are disappearing but will investigate and equip accordingly. This is a premier house in a premier neighborhood, with exceptional interior and exterior features, so will act to avoid "a minor item" creating a negative experience.
The house was very nice and well stocked. The staff at the clubhouse was a exceptionally great!
It was a very nice experience. We are talking about rebooking for 2019 possibly
