Welcome to 9+ private acres of scenic mountain retreat that borders 500,000 acres of the Pisgah National Forest.
Experience secluded relaxation that gets you away from bustling high traffic tourist attractions, and gives you wide open areas to leisurely take in the surrounding mountains.
On top of Eagle Mountain property sits a private mountaintop clearing with spectacular 180 degree south, west and northern views. Build a bon fire in our 20-foot fire pit, surrounded by boulders that create the four points of a compass. Throw down a blanket in the grassy field and create a picnic your memories will cherish. Step off the back of our property and get lost hiking onto a path that takes you deep into 500,000 acre Pisgah National Forest. Walk to the Overmountain Victory Trail and hike into the Linville Gorge where days of trails await you.
Or you can choose to remain on one of our four decks, stroll through the front yards, play some horseshoes or croquet, enjoy a small campfire, and relax, relax, relax.
Our south driveway is paved and the lodge can easily be seen from the road. There is parking at the top of the driveway and also at the patio level midway up the driveway.
Our north driveway is gravel and takes you to the top of Eagle Mountain. They connect via our 'secret passage' by driving behind the Lodge. Experienced drivers recommended :)

My wife of 25 years and our 4 grown children enjoy our mountain getaway.
Tom & Dawn purchased this house in 2008
I've been fly fishing for trout in western North Carolina for over 25 years, this area is one of the most beautiful valleys surrounded by mountains I have seen, and I have always wanted to find the perfect place in this area for our family and friends to enjoy the mountains.
So close to everything: fishing, hunting lands border our land, have seen deer, bear, and turkey on property, the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway can be accessed from 3 locations just minutes away, the Linville Gorge is spectacular and has hiking trails that lead right down to our place. A Beautiful golf course is about a mile away. The history of one of the most pivotal battles in the American Revolution, the Battle of Kings Mountain, brought the patriot forces marching literally up the road we are on and then up the mountain behind our land, creating what is now the Overmountain Victory National Historic Trail. We sit on our decks and look across at the mountains which contain 18 railroad tunnels created by the Clinchfield RR, called the Clinchfield Loops, which to this day takes trains up and over (and under) the Blue Ridge Parkway and the mountains.
My friends and I rented the mountain house for 3 days over spring break, and it was a blast! We wish we'd had more time up there. The house was great, there were 12 of us and there was plenty of room. We enjoyed playing board games, pool, and foosball on one of the days when it was raining. The bonfire pit at the top of the mountain was very impressive, and we roasted hot dogs and s'mores while relaxing in the mountain air. As far as activities outside the house go, we stopped by a "petting zoo" on the way in (an old man who owns tons of exotic and farm animals) and received a private tour of all of his animals (horses, goats, emus, llamas, birds) so I'd definitely recommend that. We also drove about 30 minutes down the road to the Linville Gorge and spent the day hiking and sightseeing, which was pretty incredible! That night we tried the Mexican restaurant suggested to us by the owners, and we all agreed it was some of the best food we've ever had. I highly recommend this spot for a vacation or getaway, it was a very exciting weekend!
This is my second time staying at Eagle Mountain and it was even better than I remembered! The furniture in the great room has been upgraded and is perfect, everything reclines now. I like the new location of the lower fire pit next to the parking area and closer to the porch. I love this place and will keep coming back, the entire area is so beautiful with the mountain views, the Linville Gorge, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was hoping that it was going to be as good as my previous memories, and I can say it absolutely was.
The house is nice, and we had a good time. There were, however, some aspects that were disappointing. First, some of the group arrived early in the day and reported that there was no firewood as advertised. This means that you cannot use the fireplace or either of the fire pits. We were still en route, so i called the owner and reported the situation. He said he would try to get some firewood delivered, but it never happened. There were plastic bags left from the last visitors that showed that they also had no firewood and had to buy it at Lowes, which is what we ended up doing. If i had known there was no firewood, I could have easily brought some from home. Part of the weekend allure is obviously a nice fire inside and outside. The other issue is that the photos were not totally representative of the place. Although you can theoretically see the views of the mountains they show in the ad, what you really see is a trailer home with chickens in the yard across the street and another trailer home off to the left side. So, it was certainly not as remote as would be suggested by the photos. The pool/game room was also a little disappointing. Yes the pool table, Foosball, and air hockey were all there, but the quality and the space was very low and they are in an unheated ? basement. Again, the house was nice, but don't expect the pristine place that is depicted in the photos.
I recently took my young men's small group to the mountains of NC and we stayed at this incredible home. The house was great with a large, well equipped kitchen and plenty of beds for a large group. The house itself is wonderfully decorated and has a very comfortable, homey feel. The guys had plenty of room to either spread out and have some alone time or all come together to as a group to have fun. All the amenities were top notch and the fire pit at the top of the mountain was a hit! I can't say enough good things about this place. We will be back for sure!!
We had a great time at Eagle Lodge and in the mountains. The house was very clean with lots of room! Nice view of Mt. Mitchell off the front porch. Close to some great hiking in the Linville Gorge area. Great game room with pool, foosball, & air hockey! Nice selection of movies to watch at night with something for all ages. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend this property for anyone!
Five adults and four children (ages 3 years to 83 years) from three states stayed together here for a family wedding and festivities in the mountains near beautiful Morganton, Linville Falls, and Linville NC including one at close-by Linville Falls Winery. The location of this home was great for us, with plenty of indoor and outdoor space (as described) enabling us to be together or to enjoy solace in between wedding activities. The owners are responsive, hospitable and organized; the house was clean and well-equipped. One caution note: you might want to bring ear plugs if you are a light sleeper--there is a CSX track across the road and a train blows through on occasion.
