Maggie Valley/Waynesville Area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

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 2-6 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.

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."

Comfortable cabin and very relaxing setting

  • 4 of 5

Bill Trufant was a perfect host with excellent recommendations and information. Cabin was just what we were seeking for a low-key and relaxing weekend. Loved listening to the stream while having morning coffee on the porch. Also enjoyed watching wild turkeys every day.

Third Time is the Charm

  • 5 of 5

Our third stay at the Cabin on Eagle's Nest (CEN) was totally enjoyable and relaxing. We spent alot of time on the front porch with the excellent weather and quiet surroundings. The cabin and the property were typically at more comfortable temperatures than in town and this made it a better getaway for our eight nights in the Waynesville area. Plenty to do in the area with excellent restaurants, shopping and sightseeing. This being our third year at the cabin, we ventured into Asheville, Sylva, Highlands, Cashiers, Brevard, Hendersonville, Franklin, Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smokie Mountains Parkway, and the streets, stores and eateries of Waynesville. The CEN is remote from the people and traffic, but is within easy distance to all that you would want on a vacation. CEN is well furnished, comfortable and beautifully landscaped. The sounds of birds and a flowing creek greet you every morning and make the evenings a joy. Bill is a great host and is quite responsive to any needs that arise. While we had no need to contact him for any issues, we have always appreciated his quick and efficient responses to any requests. Needless to say, we will seek to return in the future as the CEN has become a "home away from home" respite for us. A very enjoyable place to be.

wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We always enjoy our stay in Waynesville! The cabin as expected was great, everything we needed and the dogs enjoyed walking the property too. We especially love the large fireplace and cozy feeling of the cabin. We frequent Frogs Leap every time we come and it did not let us down again. We tried a new place the locals go, The Smokehouse and quite enjoyed that too! We will be back again to the Cabin at Eagles Nest!

This is a great cabin - well stocked with everything you need for your stay there. The house was clean and well maintained, and the owner provided all the details you needed to settle in and enjoy! The porch was awesome, and the flowers were in full bloom. It was also very convenient to Waynesville. This will definitely be a place that we rent again and recommend to others!

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
