The Cabin on Eagles Nest

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

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

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 Smoky Mountains

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."

Wonderful Rustic Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

Bill we had a wonderful time at your cabin in the woods. Just what a North Carolina mountain cabin should be. Extremely convenient to Waynesville with all its great restaurants and shops and, at the same time, very secluded. We also went to the Hart Theater and saw a play and The Strand Movie theater. The hike up to the end of Rocky Knob Rd. and back was great and we saw deer and turkey on the hike. Your cabin was very comfortable and quiet with all the things we needed.....except a dishwasher....but my wife took care of that she brought me!!! Also enjoyed the koi pond and running stream. Worked really well also for our aging dog with bad hips. Of course not much blooming in August but I bet the grounds are beautiful in Spring and Fall. Hope we get another chance to come back soon. Thanks Again!

Our second visit to the cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin feels like you're isolated in the woods but conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. The cabin has everything you could want and the plush towels and resort type toiletries are unexpected. The fenced property provides a great venue for our dog's exploring. We will no doubt visit again.

Wonderful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Rented the cabin Wed to Sunday in August. It is clean, quiet and has all the essentials. Sitting on the porch with a coffee in the morning and a beer or glass of wine in the evening is perfection. Dining options are excellent in nearby Waynesville.

4 times + is the Charm

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th time at the cabin for a week's vacation was the time away that we needed. The cabin is one of our favorite places based on its comfort, amenities, tranquility, relaxing environment, and the perfect proximity to dining, shopping, sightseeing, entertainment and stores, such as, WalMart, Ingles and Belk. We always enjoy the fine dining in Waynesville that surpasses many larger communities. Frog Leap Public House, the Chef's Table, Frankie's Trattoria, Birchwood Hall, Sweet Onion, and Bourbon Barrel offer great choices in dining. We especially enjoy the down home cooking found at Clyde's Restaurant. A highlight for excellent bar-b-que is the Haywood Smokehouse - outstanding food and great desserts. The Blue Ridge Parkway with all of its sites is great for young and old; don't miss a trip to Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Falls on Rt. 276. Bill and Bobbi Trufant are wonderful people who take pride in offering any assistance they may provide and are very responsive to the needs of guests. Their adjoining property is beautiful and is a treat to see. The Cabin on Eagles Nest is tucked away in the trees and is so relaxing you will not want to leave. Rustic and comfortable, with a great front deck to sit and enjoy the quiet. We will return many times to this place as it offers all that we are looking for as a great vacation venue. Waynesville and the surrounding area is a wonderful place to visit.
