Beautiful just ok

  • 2 of 5

The property itself is nice...but it has MAJOR septic issues. As stated in other reviews there is a major problem. We had 6 people and the toilet constantly backed up. Our friends stayed at this house the year before and we were Leary bc they had the same problem. We were assured it was fixed. It is NOT fixed. I would not recommend or stay at Attitude Adjustment again.. On a positive note the owner of Whittman Hollow is very nice

Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this floating home. We love to stay on the water when we go to the lake. The house is big and comfortable even with our large crew. The marina took care of all of our needs. We will be back!

Water didn't work

  • 1 of 5

Any positive review I could give here is skewed by the fact that there was literally no working water from the time I checked in until I checked out (early because well there was no working water). I had to take a 5 gallon bucket and use water from the lake to fill toilets up just to get the toilets to flush and in 5 days I bathed one time, in which I jumped in the lake with a bar of soap. I complained every day to no avail, I will not EVER return to this place again and would strongly suggest to anyone that ever ask me that they look elsewhere. Never have I paid so much for what I received in return the absolute worst vacation I have ever had period.

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

First time at a floating house and first time at Whitman Hollow renting a house. What a great experience. From checking in to the quality of the house it was great. We've rented many houses at Norris and this is one of our favorites! Whitman Hollow was also a great host! family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed. The kayaks were great as well!

The floating home looks great and is decorated very nicely. The first night the home smelled like a port-a-potty and the second day the toilet leaked all over the bathroom floor. Although the marina management did send someone to pump out the system eventually, they did not bother to clean the flooded water from the bathroom floor. The smell was gone after the system was pumped, though. We rented a pontoon boat from the marina that manages the property, Whitman Hallow, and were given a boat with no ladder, a broken gas gauge and broken speedometer. They were not willing to offer another boat, refund or even discount. We had to borrow a ladder from friends who live on the lake. While the house was very nice, the marina managing it gave us a faulty boat with no willingness to correct the situation.

Owner's Response: Mary Jo, Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, when more than the allowed amount of persons stay in a property, the holding tank may not accommodate the waste. Since we only pump weekly, I'm guessing the guests prior to your stay had more than the allowed amount of guests on board. Additionally, our employees are instructed not to enter the properties. We will do a better job of communicating the maximum number of guests that are allowed to stay on the floating house. As for the rental boat from Whitman Hollow, it appears that this boat should've been taken out of the rental fleet for repair. As the owner, I will make sure the dock hands are aware that we need to pay closer attention. Thank you for your review. Chuck Samples, Owner Whitman Hollow Marina

Relaxation at its finest! Spend the day soaking up the sun and playing on the water, boating, fishing, or your water sport of choice. Then relax because you are already home! Sit on the porch and take in the beautiful sunset. There are numerous restaurants available on the water or grill up your own on the gas grill. There is also plenty of fishing right at your front door. The tranquility in these surroundings, including the mountains and lake, is unbelievable. There are no other words to describe this peaceful setting than AMAZING!!! A good time will be had by all who visit.
