About Cathy Limbaugh

Two of us are retired, one from Goodyear Tire and Rubber in Gadsden, Alabama. The other from the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind in Talladega, Alabama. Our children are co-owners. We love to hike and ride along the scenic highways.

Cathy Limbaugh purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Cathy Limbaugh chose Blue Ridge

We purchased this home as a family vacation spot after several years of visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia. We love Blue Ridge because it is close enough to Atlanta and North East Alabama to make quick weekend trips. We love the apples, hiking, waterfalls and hope to enjoy kayaking with children and grandchildren.

What makes this cabin unique

Eagles Rest gives you the feeling of forest living yet it is only 5 minutes from town. Dominoes will deliver and you are only 1 mile from Merciers apple orchard where you can get the best fried apple pies around. All roads are paved including the short driveway!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The whole family gathered for Christmas the weekend before Christmas. We made cookies and decorations for the tree. We sat by the outdoor fireplace and made s'mores. The children played pool and foosball. Everyone had comfortable accomodations. Eagles Rest is a beautiful setting for any family get-together but especially for Christmas. I look forward to many more Christmas visits.

very nice cabin with all the amenities you could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

5 of my girlfriends stayed in this cabin so we could go whitewater rafting the following day. The cabin has the most spectacular view and she even has binoculars for you to enjoy! The place was VERY clean and well maintained,lots of room and privacy.

Definitely staying there again next year! Lots of things to do in town, good restaurants.

Lovely, comfortable, beautiful view, handicap accessible, and close to outdoor fun

  • 5 of 5

Our party of five women just loved our time at Eagle's Rest. The kitchen was easy to cook in and had everything we could possibly need. The living room had a great view of the valley and Blue Ridge Mountains beyond. The outdoor seating areas included a wonderful outdoor livingroom with wood-burning fireplace. Downstairs was a fantastic game room with a shuffleboard table, pool table, TV, and a hot tub outside on the deck.

On the host's recommendation, we enjoyed driving a little ways (20 minutes) to the Aska recreation area and dined on perfect Rainbow Trout at the Taccoa Riverside Restaurant. We also made a day trip to Standing Indian in the Nantahala National Forest. Several small, historic towns with a focus on tourism are nearby.

Highly recommended.

Simply beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This property was more then we expected. I could not have asked for a better place to stay while visiting Blue Ridge. Cathy helped us with a little snag concerning trash pick-up. It was resolved quickly. The house is huge! Two families stayed in the house (10 people) and we had a ton of room. The owners have thought of everything concerning the kitchen. They HAVE everything!!! We had a wonderful week and will definitely come back.

Beautiful cabin with a beautiful view.

  • 5 of 5

Eagle's Rest was perfect for my family. My daughter is in a wheel chair and the ramp and main floor were great for her. We loved the cabin and the outside fire place. The view is spectacular.
