About the owner: My wife and I have lived in Florida for the past 20 years. We started visiting the mountains of North Carolina in the early 90’s and fell in love with the area. We got hooked on river rafting the local rivers and hiking the endless trails. Thus began a search for the perfect property. We wanted enough acreage to have privacy and seclusion, a spectacular view and yet still be close enough to all the action and adventure. We found Eagles Nest in 2000 and that was it we fell in love.
One of our greatest joys is to read the comments about the special vacations and memories people have created at the cabin. Whether it’s a romantic vacation, an anniversary, a family vacation or friends having fun our customers have experienced it all. The peaceful surroundings make Eagles Nest a great place to just talk and reconnect. As one customer wrote “We found the time to have long talks and to talk about nothing! It's as if the view inspired us”.
We hope you enjoy all the area has to offer and keep coming back for new adventures in the mountains.

Why the Owner Chose Murphy: We bought in the Murphy area for several reasons. Number one we were able to find the prefect dream spot for our vacations. With total privacy, seclusion and no neighbors we are able to escape our once busy corporate lives and the hectic pace of Florida. Murphy offers that quaint small town feel with little stores, restaurants and cafes, Plus the people are all so friendly. Seems like just about anyone you meet wants to chat for awhile so we had to get used to not rushing about as we were so used to in our regular daily lives. Most of all we love the outdoor activities the area has to offer whether it's a picnic at beautiful Fires Creek, a walk on a trail, rafting a river, a pontoon boat ride on a local lake or mountain biking at Jack Rabbit the area has it all
