Forest Retreat with Stunning Mountain Vista, American Art and Chic Amenities.

My wife and I spent a four day weekend in this breath-taking place. It was an idyllic retreat tucked on a Lookout Mountain side. We watched the sunrise over the Georgia Mountains - smoke-filled valleys between three successive ranges. The smoke didn't lift untill almost noon. Liitle river canyon was a short car ride away where we hiked during the day on the side of the spectaculary wooded gorge and witnessed a gorgeous sunset dappling the wooded cliffs. Day trips to Mentone and Lake Weiss were fun outings. Mostly we walked in the woods, read books on the breath-taking deck and enjoyed the art and artifacts decorating this lovely chalet. The cabin is beautiful and well built. One of the owner couple is an artist whose nature paintings fit the setting perfectly. Native Cherokee artifacts, natural wood interiors and a massive stone fireplace add to the authenticity. We grilled supper on the deck, built evening fires in the fireplace and even watched college footbal on the big screen TV. The TV was not used otherwise because the setting absolutely drew you into the natural surroundings. The owners bent over backwards to make us feel at home. They provided great advise regarding travel and local landmarks. Their property is pristine and lovingly maintained. Our absolute highest recomendations.! We plan to return with our children because the cabin is big enough and because the setting is so spectacular.

Relaxing and comfortable meets adventure and scenic view overload!

The owners were incredibly accommodating and helpful. We had never been to the area before, and they made it easy for us to find fun things to do, adventures to have, places to shop and eat while staying at the clean, comfortable and well-appointed chalet over-looking beautiful elevated natural setting. We loved hiking through Little River Canyon, DeSoto Falls, Cherokee Rock Village, kayaking on Weiss Lake, lunch & shopping in Mentone, and just relaxing and grilling out at the house.

While we thought the photos were obviously compelling enough to choose this place to stay, in our opinion, they did not do the place justice. The views from the home, the inside amenities and the surrounding landscape were far prettier and more scenic than depicted. Always a nice surprise!

Based on the road getting to the house, which is almost an adventure in itself, a truck or SUV is advised. And if you and your family (including dogs) enjoy being outdoors in the woods and seeing some of the best sunrises ever, this is the place.

Thank you for allowing us to stay!

THE PERFECT PLACE

The Eagles Nest was the perfect place for our family. My dad suffered a stroke in December and has a few physical limitations. This property offered him every convenience that he required. The views were spectacular. The accommodations were absolutely amazing and the owners treated you less like guest and more like family. My daughter and grandchildren occupied the upstairs and we had the downstairs. Everyone had more than enough room. More time was spent on the deck than in the house. The owners provided us with a binder of information. Places to see, trails to hike, swimming holes and places to eat. The first day there we started making plans for next year. We used to be beach goers, but this will be our vacation home from now on. If you are looking for the perfect place, The Eagles Nest is it.

Highly Recommend for Relaxing Getaway

We celebrated my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. The cabin was great... even better than the pictures show. The owner is very friendly and helpful regarding recommendations. We enjoyed sight-seeing at the Little River Canyon park: hiking, wading and seeing beautiful waterfalls. We ate most of our meals at the cabin. It is equipped with everything you will need. There is a 2 mile stretch of bumpy gravel road; it does take about 15 minutes to travel, but once your at the cabin you don't care because just hanging out and enjoying the incredible view is wonderful.

This home was even better in person! It was very comfortable and the views were spectacular. We loved sitting out on the porch area and cooking on the grill, very peaceful and relaxing!!! One of the highlights was watching the hummingbirds feed. Definitely a great place for a large group.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed our cabin as much as we do. Glad to hear that the hummingbirds are back. Gina
