Welcome to Eagles Nest at High Falls. This cabin is a 10-year dream for my husband and myself. This 'new' cabin is perfectly appointed. It was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. You will feel like you are a million miles away from everything but are only a 30 minute drive to many great restaurants and great shopping in downtown Guntersville. You are also only 20 minutes to Guntersville State Park with its hiking, fishing and swimming just to name a few of its amenities. Drive 30 minutes in the other direction and you can choose to visit Buck's Pocket State Park or High Falls Park, where for those with a great sense of adventure, (or a lack of better judgment), can jump off of the 40 foot Falls into to swimming hole below. The cabin itself boasts 8' to 12' wide hand hewn poplar logs, the original pine and poplar floors have been refinished while maintaining as much of the original character and patina as possible. The home is furnished with many period appropriate antiques and a King size bed made from reclaimed barn wood from the 1800's. A study complete with a desk and an incredible view of the gorge below is just off the master bedroom and would make a perfect spot for pastors seeking a time of prayer and retreat and sermon planning. The plush sofa and chairs in the family room make relaxing easy. The rocking chairs on the front porch offer a place to sit and watch the sunset over the mountains around you while listening to the sound of the water running over the two waterfalls on either side of the almost 10 acres atop the mountain. During the winter months Bald Eagles nest along the bluff and can be seen soaring along the rim of the bluff and you will have a front row seat. Eagles Nest at High Falls is the perfect spot for just one and would be an ideal place for a couple’s getaway too, but it will sleep up to 4 people. Please keep that in mind for any prayer and “rest” retreats that you or any of your friends church leaders might need. We do offer Gift Certificates!

We had a wonderful weekend at this cabin. It is very relaxing without the internet, TV and minimal cell phone coverage. It was just my husband and myself, so we had plenty of room. We enjoyed having a bonfire each night listening to the whippoorwill. I would recommend this place for a way to disconnect from the outside world.
Great anniversary trip
We visited the cabin for our anniversary trip. The view is beautiful and the location is so peaceful. The house was beautifully restored and extremely comfortable. There were even bathrobes available to use! It was a lot quieter than we are used to since their wasn't Internet reception to play music on our phone and there are only about 10 TV channels available (Make sure to have some movies for the evening time). The porch was perfect for relaxing and had a table where we could play board games.
We would definitely come back to enjoy this cabin again! Thank you Karen for sharing your home!
What a wonderful place to celebrate anniversary with my wife. We definitely plan on going back again someday! Very peaceful, soothing and exquisite!
Perfect place for 2-4 people.
We loved this place. It's perfectly decorated with all the rustic decor to make this home unique! It has everything you need. The view from the hot tub is amazing! This place deserves ☆☆☆☆☆!
Loved this beautiful restored home right on the edge of the state park. The sound of the rushing water was wonderful to hear in the mornings with my coffee. My husband and I enjoyed it very much and will return!
