About Cathy Limbaugh

Two of us are retired, one from Goodyear Tire and Rubber in Gadsden, Alabama. The other from the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind in Talladega, Alabama. Our children are co-owners. We love to hike and ride along the scenic highways.

Cathy Limbaugh purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Cathy Limbaugh chose North Georgia Mountains

We purchased this home as a family vacation spot after several years of visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia. We love Blue Ridge because it is close enough to Atlanta and North East Alabama to make quick weekend trips. We love the apples, hiking, waterfalls and hope to enjoy kayaking with children and grandchildren.

What makes this cabin unique

Eagles Rest gives you the feeling of forest living yet it is only 5 minutes from town. Dominoes will deliver and you are only 1 mile from Merciers apple orchard where you can get the best fried apple pies around. All roads are paved including the short driveway!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The whole family gathered for Christmas the weekend before Christmas. We made cookies and decorations for the tree. We sat by the outdoor fireplace and made s'mores. The children played pool and foosball. Everyone had comfortable accomodations. Eagles Rest is a beautiful setting for any family get-together but especially for Christmas. I look forward to many more Christmas visits.

Beautiful, comfortable retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eagles Rest. Plenty of room to spread out, comfortably and well decorated, everything you could imagine needing in the kitchen! Cathy was a pleasure to deal with. It is evident that this a a real home away from home for her and it felt like home to us as well!

The cabin is easy to get to and close to everything. The kids loved having their own space with many games etc. to entertain! While the adults enjoyed the hot tub outdoor space with room to relax. Even our dog felt at home with the very "dog friendly" space! Thank you Cathy for sharing your retreat with us!

I recently stayed at Eagle's Rest for a family vacation.The website states that the cabin is accesibile,but there are some issues.First,the bed in the main level bedroom is too high for anyone who cannot stand.I required assistance getting in and out of bed where as,if it had been the correct height,I could have managed by myself.The bed in the downstairs bedroom would havebeen the right level,but the only way to get down there is a flight of stairs.Also,the mirrors were too high for me.If a full length mirror could be placed in the main floor bedroom,that would be helpful.Aside from these issues,we had a wonderful time and I would recommend the cabin to family and friends.And,if these changes are made,I would love to come back for a visit.

Owner's Response: I am really sorry that you had accessibility issues at Eagles Rest. We do have a wheel chair ramp, a threshold ramp for the door, and a very large bathroom with grab bars. We have had several wheelchair bound guests who have had no issues but I am sincerely concerned about your experience. The full length mirror will be installed this week! The bed is a mattress and springs with standard rails. I do not know how we will lower it or if there is another accommodation we can provide. I will be searching for a solution for the height of the bed. The lower bed at Eagles Rest is on the upper floor and is a tempurpedic foam mattress that has no springs therefore the height is very low. I surely hope you can return again, I will be sure to let you know if we can change the bed height.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

For my upcoming "milestone" birthday, I suggested to my family that I wanted to celebrate in one of my favorite places: THE MOUNTAINS!! Our kids, grandkids, my husband and I, and his guide-dog spent five wonderful days during Spring Break 2016 at your beautiful cabin in Blue Ridge, Georgia. You thought of ABSOLUTELY everything and more, that a family might need during a getaway! From the very comfortable furniture in the family gathering areas, to the very nicely decorated bedrooms, great beds and bedding, fully stocked kitchen , warm fireplaces, amazing deck, great game room, security cameras, gates on the deck, walking sticks for hiking, could you have thought of anything more? Oh, yes you did! Being a teacher, I was very impressed with your very thorough instructions, and how EVERYTHING was labeled to make it easier for your guests. You even included a dog cage and sheets to use on the furniture if the dog wanted to sit there! We were blessed with beautiful sunrises, cold weather, and even SNOW!

Needless to say, we did not want to leave. I have already recommended your cabin to friends! We hope to be back soon!
