Outdoor Fun & Attractions

Morrow Mountain State Park

Choose an adventure at Morrow Mountain State Park, whether it’s hiking, camping, paddling, fishing, horseback riding, swimming or just taking in scenery on one of the highest points in the piedmont. More than 15 miles of hiking trails and 16 miles of bridle trails thread the park, reaching from the summit of Morrow Mountain to Lake Tillery, where a boathouse offers canoes and rowboats for rent and bait for fishing. Visitors can launch their own craft from a boat ramp. A family campground with 106 sites for tents, trailers and RVs is close by a swimming pool with bathhouse. Group camping, remote backpack camping and rustic vacation cabins give more choices for extended stays.

We've used Lynn Norman and Lake Tillery Properties for the purchase and/or sale of three houses now, and I cannot say enough about Lynn and this team! We were time-constrained in our most recent sale. Lynn met with us, drew up a tight schedule, and we mapped out what needed to be done to get the house on the market by Labor Day. We got the house ready with their suggestions, they took beautiful photographs, and the house went on the market Thursday before Labor Day. We had dozens of showings that weekend, and agreed upon an above listing offer the following week. Lynn's team continued to support us through the due diligence and closing phases, staying in close contact regarding any concerns that cropped up. All went well, thanks in no small part to Lake Tillery Properties.

Lake Tillery Properties expertise is unmatched! Lynn is a phenomenal agent who helped us through every step of the process and answered any questions we had along the way quickly and thoroughly. Christy, in the office, answered many questions for us and expedited the entire process while being a joy to work with. If you're looking for an agent we can't recommend Lynn and her office enough. She will be our agent for any and all future real estate needs.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Lake Tillery Properties and our realtor, Lynn Norman. We found Lynn to be very knowledgeable of this market and professional during negotiations. Her team was very accurate and efficient throughout the whole selling process as well. Our home sold quickly, and it was a very positive experience! I would recommend Lake Tillery Properties to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in this area.

Lynn and her team are awesome! We have purchased and sold 3 homes on Lake Tillery and have engaged Lynn and her team for each transaction. We have known Lynn since 2009 and she in not only a great broker, she has become a very good friend to us. We would recommend her and her team as they are truly the Lake experts.

I inherited a lake front home that was a mess, and I faced several hurdles before I could sale it. I had a boat pier that was collapsing, 3 abandoned boats docked with no trailer (one boat had a tree growing in it), a house full of clutter from 4 generations of family, and a jungle for a yard. Christy was able to help me take care of all these problems, from giving me the name of an auction company to sell of the junk, used a local marina to haul off the junk boats, and told me what to worry about fixing and what could be left for the seller, saving me lots of time and money. She even went as far as to contact FedEx and the Buyer's attorney after they lost their payment check to me in the mail, and made sure I got it ASAP. Actually got a currier to ride out to the city it ended up in to drive it out to my home. In short, if there was a problem, it was taken care of. Somebody was always on the other end of the phone, text, or email, day or night, weekday or weekends. I also got an extra 100k out of the sale by partitioning the lot on her suggestion. I've sold 3 homes in the last year due to this inheritance, and this has been by far the most responsive and cost affective realtor I've worked with thus far. I would absolutely recommend and use them again if given the opportunity.

I have worked with Lynn Norman for almost 20 years on both personal and investment properties. She has represented myself and/or my company in both roles as buyer and seller. She is very easy to work with, always available, knowledgeable, professional, smart, and really knows the Lake Tillery market. I can always expect the same consistent service and hard work on each deal. She is absolutely fantastic to work with and makes friends everywhere she goes!

Lynn and her team were excellent to work with. Lynn was extremely responsive and helpful, especially with giving us insight on the lake. We were particular about what we were looking for and Lynn LISTENED and really didn’t waste our time on homes that didn’t check the boxes. We appreciated her honesty and landed on what we wanted! Couldn’t be happier with our experience with this company. Her assistant Christy was also over the top helpful with educating us on the nuances of the lake and paperwork for permits that were necessary.
