- Located within walking distance of the historic village of Tellico Plains, at the foot of the Cherohala Skyway. Test your riding skills on the famous 'Tail of the Dragon' motorcyle ride. We are a short drive to the Tellico River for kayaking or trophy trout fishing. This area is known for its world class bear, deer and small game hunting. Visit historic Indian Boundary Lake, Tellico Lake, Citico Creek and Smoky Mountain wilderness all a short drive away. Friday night barbeque is perfect for mingling with the other guests and participating in the Cherokee History Roundtable with the Colonel. A portion of all proceeds go to the Eagle's Rest Foundation devoted to seasonal wounded warrior retreats designed to provide our seriously wounded combat veterans and their families with the tranquility and restorative peace found in the ancestral capital of the Overhill Cherokees who inhabited this area for over 10,000 years....moreless

What a hidden gem, a must stay!!
What a hidden gem, a must stay!!
If you are looking for a place to unwind, relax, explore the smoky mountains, all with an added benefit of superb hospitality, this place is it! I arrived to this quaint bed and breakfast with my father and brother for a trout fishing adventure along the breathtaking Tellico River. It was everything and more! In addition, we took a stop in the Tellico Grains Bakery where we enjoyed coffee, breads, and pastries before we hit the river for the day! I highly recommend taking a trip through the Cherohala Skyway, which is a 43 mile National scenic byway that connects Tellico Plains, TN to Robbinsville, North Carolina. Whether it is by motorcycle, car, or even bike, the owner of this bed and breakfast will tell you the best spots for breathtaking views. We were forever greatful for the hospitality and will be sure to make a trip back to this gem very soon!!

About the owner: As the owner and proprietor of the Eagle's Rest, I was raised in the South and spent much of my youth hunting, fishing and hiking in the Tellico area. I am a retired Army Colonel who has returned to the land of my ancestors. I have lived all over the world, but the peace and tranquility found in Tellico Plains is both restorative and rejuvenating. If interested, I can share points of interest and fascinating tales about the settlers of the Smoky Mountains and the proud Cherokee nation that thrived in this region for thousands of years.
