Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4), Pets Welcome

Discover the magic of the Smokies in this hand built, rustic log cabin perched on Eagle's Nest Mountain high above the quaint town of Waynesville. Enjoy our beautiful four and a half acre mountainside setting with pond, stream, seasonal gardens and mature hardwoods.

The cabin, with its perfect location in a cozy, secluded setting, sleeps up to 4 people. Downstairs, the master suite has a queen-sized bed, roomy closet and attached bathroom with Jacuzzi tub/shower. Upstairs, the open loft has two double beds and bathroom with shower. Relax inside by the stone, wood-burning fireplace or outside in a rocking chair on the wrap-around porch. Additional amenities include a fully-equipped kitchen, TV/DVD, CD player/stereo (with speakers in the main room, master bedroom and front porch) and land line telephone. The recent addition of a fire pit behind the cabin adds further opportunity to relax.

Waynesville has long been known for its picturesque small-town charm. You will find friendly people, great shops, restaurants and tree-shaded benches to sit on and rest a spell. In season, ole ‘timey street dances and annual festivals fill the little town with excitement, but with none of the hassle of crowds and honky-tonk typical of “tourist traps.”

There is so much to do while you’re here. Explore the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Pisgah National Forest or the Biltmore Estate. Ride and hike the Blue Ridge Parkway. Golf down the road at Laurel Ridge Country Club, raft the Nantahala, ski Catalouchee, ride horseback…or simply kick back and watch the traffic at the bird feeders.

About Bill Trufant

I was raised in New Orleans, where I still live, and attended summer camp in Western North Carolina. My wife and I purchased The Cabin on Eagles Nest along with our second residence in 2001 and we love spending as much time as possible in the mountains.

Bill Trufant purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Bill Trufant chose Waynesville

We love Waynesville and its friendly people and we are only 30 minutes from downtown Asheville.

What makes this cabin unique

We have a large garden, available for our guests to wander and enjoy, that keeps us busy when we are in the mountains. After gardening, it's time to relax and travel Western North Carolina. We especially enjoy sunsets at Water Rock Knob on the Blue Ridge Parkway just 15 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for allowing us to share the beauty of this cabin with you. The surroundings are amazing! This was perfect for a little getaway - especially on Valentine's Day! We love how peaceful & refreshing the creek is, a big change for "city-life" We can't wait to come again."

Perfect Cabin on Eagles Nest

  • 5 of 5

We were in North Carolina recently for two family weddings. The first wedding was in Chapel Hill and the second was in Highlands. My husband and I were looking for a place to stay between the two weddings and found this "gem" in Waynesville. The Eagles Nest cabin is lovely. It is nestled in the trees and is so peaceful and relaxing. The cabin is very convenient to shopping and restaurants in downtown Waynesville. My husband enjoyed golfing nearby at Laurel Ridge Country Club and we also went to a play at the Flat Rock Playhouse. Whether you are looking for a place to relax and chill or want a home base to go to cities/towns nearby, the Eagles Nest cabin is the perfect location. We highly recommend this cabin and hope to return for a longer stay.

Loved our stay @ The Cabin on Eagles Nest!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay @ The Cabin on Eagles Nest! It is a very relaxing and beautiful setting; comfortable cabin with all the amenities and the owner was wonderful to work with and most helpful with suggestions during our week stay. We'll definitely return to this property; hopefully sooner vs. later! An added bonus is we loved the charming town of Waynesville.

Charming

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was in a beautiful setting....very peaceful and quiet. Well stocked and convenient to Waynesville shops and restaurants. The owner was very attentive and fast to respond to a request or question. I would definitely recommend this little slice of heaven for a wonderful stay in western NC.

Marvelous!

  • 5 of 5

We live nearby and rented the cabin for out-of-town visitors. They loved every minute. The cabin is lovely, cozy, well maintained, and easy to access. Everything was in readiness when they arrived. It is also close to many outdoor activities, good restaurants, and delightful and gallery-filled downtown Waynesville. We went on outings to hike in the the National Park, visited the NC Arboretum and the Folk Art Center, and enjoyed waterfall hunting.
