My wife and I have lived in Florida for the past 20 years. We started visiting the mountains of North Carolina in the early 90’s and fell in love with the area. We got hooked on river rafting the local rivers and hiking the endless trails. Thus began a search for the perfect property. We wanted enough acreage to have privacy and seclusion, a spectacular view and yet still be close enough to all the action and adventure. We found Eagles Nest in 2000 and that was it we fell in love.
One of our greatest joys is to read the comments about the special vacations and memories people have created at the cabin. Whether it’s a romantic vacation, an anniversary, a family vacation or friends having fun our customers have experienced it all. The peaceful surroundings make Eagles Nest a great place to just talk and reconnect. As one customer wrote “We found the time to have long talks and to talk about nothing! It's as if the view inspired us”.
We hope you enjoy all the area has to offer and keep coming back for new adventures in the mountains.

Stuart Tabman purchased this cabin in 2000
We bought in the Murphy area for several reasons. Number one we were able to find the prefect dream spot for our vacations. With total privacy, seclusion and no neighbors we are able to escape our once busy corporate lives and the hectic pace of Florida. Murphy offers that quaint small town feel with little stores, restaurants and cafes, Plus the people are all so friendly. Seems like just about anyone you meet wants to chat for awhile so we had to get used to not rushing about as we were so used to in our regular daily lives. Most of all we love the outdoor activities the area has to offer whether it's a picnic at beautiful Fires Creek, a walk on a trail, rafting a river, a pontoon boat ride on a local lake or mountain biking at Jack Rabbit the area has it all
Beautiful, warm, great views and a hot tub what else does one need. Everything is there from a nice kitchen with all the essentials to a nice fire place with plenty of wood. Almost hate to do this review for fear I won't be able to book it again if more people know about it......
This is by far the most beautiful cabin I have ever stayed at. The views are fantastic, the kitchen is well stocked and has everything you could ever need and more. Every single room is decorated carefully and tastefully. The basement has a pool table and another large living room, AND another bedroom and bathroom. The Master Bedroom has the softest bed I've ever slept in and everything in this house is made of solid beautiful wood I swear on it. The living room has leather recliners that are just as comfortable and they also have two fireplaces. Outside there's a hot tub that you can just relax in and stare at the stars, and just around to the back deck, there are plenty of nice places to sit and watch the sun rise and go down as well. I can not stress enough how beautiful the views are. The pictures DO NOT do this property justice, it is really that spectacular. On top of having such a gorgeous cabin, the owner himself is a wonderful person. Very accommodating and friendly and has been on top of our every need. He has been very generous to us and we would have not been able to come here if it weren't for his kindness. I have even fallen in love with taking pictures of this property because it deserves the attention. Very private location and I would recommend this property to anyone that wants a memorable experience. This will be the only cabin I return to when I travel back to Murphy.
This cabin was one of the most comfortable places my wife and I have stayed in a long time. The views are beautiful, the privacy can't be beat, and the home is immaculate. As a foodie, I was even able to find every utensil I needed to cook AND it was organized well! I had to bring nothing for cooking utensils! Sitting in the living room at night with the fireplace crackling and a mountain view with a wall that is practically all window, is wonderful. Highly recommend.
What a place!! the view is to die for. Everything you could ever need was there. the drive up wasn't bad just kinda steep in one spot, but we are from the mountains. You cant have that view with out going up. But what really make this place is the owners. Stuart And Melody go WAY out of there way to make sure you have a great stay. Everything is just perfect. if your going to stay in the area this place cant be beat.
We were looking for a place to relax, unwind and just plain breathe. Eagles Nest fit that perfectly. From the moment we walked in and observed the spectacular view, the weight of the world fell away. The only problem we encountered was our time to leave came much too quickly! Hope to come back soon!
My husband and I celebrated our 30th anniversary with a trip that included Eagles Nest. It was very private and secluded. The drive was a little intimidating, but so worth it. The view was incredible and the cabin was very cozy and comfortable. We hiked the mountain directly behind the house which was challenging, but fun. Would definitely recommend it for a quiet getaway..
