Guestbook comments from the owner

I am a native of Maggie Valley. I have always loved riding by your cabin dreaming that I would someday have a 'Rock' cabin to call my own. We were so excited to find your cabin available. We had a great time relaxing in your very cozy cabin. The kitchen is fabulous, all the comforts of home - you thought of every detail. Thanks for phone & wireless service. My son loved the creek, red bridge and throwing stones in the water. We enjoyed the peacefullness of Eagles Rest. Thank you, again.

Charming cabin!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for a week. The cabin was absolutely perfect; on the inside and on the outside. This place is “heaven on earth”. Thank you so much, Pat and Jim, for opening up your home to the public. ❤️

We recommend this cabin for a romantic get away or for a family vacation!

Great cottage. Comfortable, peaceful, beautiful.

  • 4 of 5

The only reason we didnt give it 5 stars was the inconvenience of having to take our trash at the end of the week. All of the convenience centers close at 5 and we couldnt find one close to our place. Other than that, a phenomenal week and would go back again.

Owner's Response: So sorry for your inconvenience. We do appreciate your input. We have not found a reliable trash service in our area. In checking with other vacation rentals in our area, they recommend the convenience centers. Thank you for your understanding. Pat Ferguson

It’s perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

What a blessing to stay in this home and enjoy a family vacation. We have 3 boys ages 6, 8, and 10 and it’s our third time to stay here. It’s right down the road from skiing and the best place to come home to after the slopes. The boys spend hours playing in the creek and it’s a lovely set up for family rest relaxation and fun together! Thank you to the owners for offering your home and allowing us to make precious memories here to last a lifetime! Can’t wait to return!

Willow Spring

Cozy, cute and great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was especially nice since we were going up there for snowboarding. The owners think of everything so that you don’t have to leave to shop for basics like trash bags, laundry detergent, etc. We highly recommended the Organic Coffee shop on Soco Rd. The staff there is extremely helpful with finding local attractions and nearby hiking. We only wished we had stopped by earlier in our stay. This is especially helpful in the winter time since so many things are closed it can be challenging to find things to do. Elevation Distillery is also fun stop and very educational.

The yard is full of fresh water springs and animal footprints. So cool!!! They have done some updates inside the cabin since the last pictures were posted that look very nice.

Suggestions: we had no idea how to operate the hot tub. Instructions would have helped but we did figured it out enough to use. It was wonderful. Having to take your garbage to the dump is not something we wanted to deal with while on vacation. We managed. But, this should probably be listed in the description.

The owners were great. We had a couple of questions while we were there for them and they couldn’t have been nicer. Much thanks Pat!!

Our family has made memories here that we will never forget! We can't wait to go back!!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to Maggie Valley for many years now, staying at various motels and cabins each year. Several years ago, we were out just riding and I saw this little cabin from the road. My heart literally skipped a beat. It was obvious that someone lived there. I jumped out and took a picture and placed the picture in a frame beside my bed where it stayed for years. When I needed to "get away" in my mind, I would stare at my picture and pretend like I was there. Years later, I was scrolling through places to stay in Maggie Valley and low and behold the picture of this cabin popped up for vacation rental! I was beside myself! We called and booked the cabin and the rest is history. We have stayed here for at least a half dozen times and each time we stay is even better than the time before. It truly feels like our home away from home. The first year we stayed here, I had a pot of chili simmering on the stove, my husband had a fire going in the wood fireplace, my mama was napping, and all was peaceful. When I thought it couldn't get any better, I looked out the window and it was snowing! In October! This year as we stood on the porch, watching the rain, listening to the rushing stream and seeing the colorful leaves fall like snow from the trees, I knew that I had made another memory for times when I needed one. And the most exciting thing that happened this time was looking out and seeing a huge beautiful elk right across the street from us eating apples from an apple tree! It was a magnificent sight! We are making precious memories here for our children and grandchildren. That brings me peace. We see and feel our Creator here. There is something Spiritual about this place and we all feel it. The Bible says that He is preparing a mansion in heaven for us. I wonder if He will just give me a little cabin just like this one.......I'd be perfectly satisfied. :)

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Eagles Rest Creekside! The yard was amazing and our kids loved that there was a creek right in the front yard. The cabin was awesome with everything you could possibly need. We had a wonderful vacation and would definitely stay again. Very relaxing! - K. Martin
