About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps up to 8

Eagle’s Perch, rustic with many touches of simple elegance, sits high on a mountaintop, midway between Bryson City and Franklin, NC, overlooking the rushing Little Tennessee River. It offers magnificent mountain views with spectacular sunsets, the fresh smell of clean mountain air, where you may even see the eagles fly! The home’s layout, conducive to multiple-couple privacy, as well as family togetherness, provides large indoor and outdoor living spaces.

The center of your activities will be in the huge Great Room, featuring one wall of floor-to-cathedral ceiling windows, a large seating area, wood-burning fireplace and satellite TV/DVD. Off to one side is the dining area, with seating for 8, and kitchen area. The ultra-modern kitchen, equipped with a full complement of utensils and dinnerware, offers a high-end stove, refrigerator and dishwasher, as well as spacious pantry.

Eagle's Perch, situated midway between Bryson City and Franklin, is on a security-protected private drive leading from a gravel country road adjacent to the Little Tennessee River. The Little Tennessee River provides both fishing and kayaking while the surrounding mountains are ideal for hiking and ATVs. The Nantahala Recreation Center, located just down the road, offers the best white-water rafting, and kayaking, in all the Smokies. Nearby Lake Fontana provides boating and SCUBA activities. Horseback riding is also close by.

The towns of Bryson City, Franklin and Cherokee offer every conceivable vacation pastime, including gem mining, and Casino gambling. The Great Smoky Mountain Rail Road has train rides that delight both kids and adults. The nearby Great Smoky Mountain National Park offers additional family activities- and don't forget Dollywood, just on the other side of the park.

Nice and remote location. Suitable for those who want to stay away from technology for few days. Only issue is with road having couple of potholes on the way up to the resort.
