About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Discover the magic of the Smokies in this hand built, tin-roofed log cabin perched on Eagle's Nest Mountain high above the quaint town of Waynesville. Enjoy our beautiful four and a half acre mountainside setting with pond, stream, seasonal gardens and mature hardwoods.

The cabin, with its perfect location in a cozy, secluded setting, sleeps up to four people. Downstairs, the master suite has a queen-sized bed, roomy closet and attached bathroom with Jacuzzi tub/shower. The upstairs loft has two double beds and bathroom with shower. Relax inside by the stone, wood-burning fireplace or outside in a rocking chair on the wrap-around porch. Additional amenities include a fully-equipped kitchen, TV/DVD, CD player/stereo (with speakers in the main room, master bedroom and front porch) and telephone. The recent addition of a fire pit behind the cabin adds further opportunity to relax.

About Bill Trufant

I was raised in New Orleans, where I still live, and attended summer camp in Western North Carolina. My wife and I purchased The Cabin on Eagles Nest along with our second residence in 2001 and we love spending as much time as possible in the mountains.

Bill Trufant purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Bill Trufant chose Waynesville

We love Waynesville and its friendly people and we are only 30 minutes from downtown Asheville.

What makes this cabin unique

We have a large garden, available for our guests to wander and enjoy, that keeps us busy when we are in the mountains. After gardening, it's time to relax and travel Western North Carolina. We especially enjoy sunsets at Water Rock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway just 15 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you for allowing us to share the beauty of this cabin with you. The surroundings are amazing! This was perfect for a little getaway - especially on Valentine's Day! We love how peaceful & refreshing the creek is, a big change for "city-life" We can't wait to come again."

Very nice rustic cabin in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cabin. It is perfect for 2 couples or a couple with kids. The den was comfortable and had seating for 4. Beside the outdoor fire bowl with adirondack chairs was a wonderful place to spend several hours. There was plenty of firewood for the outdoor and indoor fire places. We had a great time. Bill was very responsive and easy to work with.

Lovely cabin close to Asheville

  • 4 of 5

Loved everything about the cabin. Location is perfect for an Asheville visit. Its secluded yet easy too access. The cabin size was as we expected. It was clean and we had no problems during the stay. Enjoyed using the fire pit outside. Our only complaint was - there is no dishwasher. other than that - everything was perfect ! Will definitely visit again in the future.

Secluded but Close In to town! Loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

We adored this place. We are a self employed couple with an elderly ailing family member. On top of that, we are building a house, so we needed a break! This was just the right medicine for us both! The cabin is a true cabin that is very well stocked. I especially loved rocking on the porch and sitting by the fire pit at night. Next time we book this place, it will be for longer than two nights! I can see us staying here for a week at least! Thanks to the owners for being so easy to deal with, and for allowing us to stay in your lovely cabin!

Map

Nearest Airport
45 Miles
Asheville NC Airport

Waynesville has long been known for its picturesque small-town charm. You will find friendly people, great shops, restaurants and tree-shaded benches to sit on and rest a spell. In season, ole ‘timey street dances and annual festivals fill the little town with excitement, but with none of the hassle of crowds and honky-tonk typical of “tourist traps.”

There is so much to do while you’re here. Explore the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Pisgah National Forest or the Biltmore Estate. Ride and hike the Blue Ridge Parkway. Golf down the road at Laurel Ridge Country Club, raft the Nantahala, ski Catalouchee, ride horseback…or simply kick back and watch the traffic at the bird feeders.

Other Activities: Shopping, Miniature golf
