Welcome to Eagles Nest at High Falls. This cabin is a 10-year dream for my husband and myself. This 'new' cabin is perfectly appointed. It was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. You will feel like you are a million miles away from everything but are only a 30 minute drive to many great restaurants and great shopping in downtown Guntersville. You are also only 20 minutes to Guntersville State Park with its hiking, fishing and swimming just to name a few of its amenities. Drive 30 minutes in the other direction and you can choose to visit Buck's Pocket State Park or High Falls Park, where for those with a great sense of adventure, (or a lack of better judgment), can jump off of the 40 foot Falls into to swimming hole below. The cabin itself boasts 8' to 12' wide hand hewn poplar logs, the original pine and poplar floors have been refinished while maintaining as much of the original character and patina as possible. The home is furnished with many period appropriate antiques and a King size bed made from reclaimed barn wood from the 1800's. A study complete with a desk and an incredible view of the gorge below is just off the master bedroom and would make a perfect spot for pastors seeking a time of prayer and retreat and sermon planning. The plush sofa and chairs in the family room make relaxing easy. The rocking chairs on the front porch offer a place to sit and watch the sunset over the mountains around you while listening to the sound of the water running over the two waterfalls on either side of the almost 10 acres atop the mountain. During the winter months Bald Eagles nest along the bluff and can be seen soaring along the rim of the bluff and you will have a front row seat. Eagles Nest at High Falls is the perfect spot for just one and would be an ideal place for a couple’s getaway too, but it will sleep up to 4 people. Please keep that in mind for any prayer and “rest” retreats that you or any of your friends church leaders might need. We do offer Gift Certificates!

My husband and I have 4 wonderful children and we manage 2 vacation rental properties which I have renovated.
Karen purchased this cabin in 2010
The view from this mountaintop is absolutely amazing and was the perfect spot for us to relocate the cabin to.
Breathtaking views, hiking, watching the wildlife around you. One of the most unique benefits you will receive is solitude and peace.
We took a nice three day weekend vacation over Veteran’s day weekend to Guntersville, Alabama. I spent many childhood vacations at Guntersville State Park, so I have many great memories there when I was my son's age. This seemed like a fun place to take him for a weekend filled with nature, quietness and togetherness. When I stumbled upon this cabin that has quite an awesome story behind it, I knew I just had to book it to stay here on vacation. According to the VRBO listing, it was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. The story of the cabin is what drew me to the place, but I could not have prepared for just how awe-inspiring it would be once we arrived to this sacred piece of Earth. There was only one other house as far as we could see in any direction. The silence was wonderfully deafening. There aren’t quite enough words to describe how peaceful and beautiful this place was. Seriously, no detail was left overlooked. Everything was perfection. To think that the original cabin was built over 175 years ago just blows my mind. You HAVE to watch the video above if you have a minute to see the whole story from start to finish.

This property is the most unique we have ever come across- like stepping into the past, only with A/C and a microwave. The cabin has so much personality. The ancient rough-hewn logs tell their own story. Beautifully decorated, and everything thought of. The grounds are very well maintained. We are looking forward to coming back. The only thing that could be enhanced is some undergrowth being removed past the fence line, to expand the already great view so the creek can be seen from the porch. Such an amazing place, thank you Tilley family, for making this available for others to enjoy!
The cabin and surroundings were beautiful. Just what we needed for a quiet relaxing get away. Weather was perfect, even the thunderstorm our first night there. No one can question the existence of God when you are surrounded by his glory and beauty at Eagles Nest. The owners have done an outstanding job with this property. Looking forward to our return visit.
The cabin was absolutely gorgeous. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to get away for a quiet relaxing vacation. View was amazing. Hope to return soon.
This cabin was absolutely amazing. The owners have thought of everything that a guest could possibly want or need. If you are looking to get closer to nature and God, this is the place! Some bad weather was coming my way the last day and the owner went out of her way to make sure that I was aware of the forecast and that I made it off the mountain safely. I will be a repeat guest at this home!
This is a beautiful cabin with a awesome view! Pictures don't do it justice. We had a great 4 day stay. The weather was a little crazy but it just made for some fun hot tub time and some needed rest & relaxation! The cabin was everything we wanted and more. Karen was great to deal with and very helpful!
This was the most peaceful and beautiful place my husband and I have ever stayed. It felt and looked rustic but had all the luxuries we could want. It was so nice to disconnect from the outside world and enjoy God's beauty. I don't usually sleep well away from home, but I slept peacefully in that comfortable bed. There are many things to do in the area, but we were content to relax at the cabin and hike around in the woods on the property. The views from the cabin are extraordinary. We cannot wait to go back.
