••PLEASE NOTE: Beginning in August we will be actively working on the 2nd cabin at High Falls. It is our goal to have The Kennedy Cabin at High Falls with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms open for rentals by the SPRING 2017 rental season. We want our Eagles Nest renters to know that if you book a stay any WEEKDAYS between August and February there will be construction going on next door. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause but the result will be another amazing cabin to offer to you as the perfect weekend getaway. Each cabin has their own private driveway and there is over 300 feet separating the cabins, but you will be able to hear the construction noise next door. If you feel that this may interfere with your vacation, we recommend that you book your reservation after March 1, 2017. Thank you for your understanding!
•••Also, we will have opened another LARGE cabin rental on Lake Guntersville. Barnwood Lodge and all of our vacation rental cabins were featured on the hit DIY Network show, Barnwood Builders this past Summer as part of Season 3. Tune in to the DIY Network, Barnwood Builders and look for Season 3 Epsiode 7 to see us! •••

Welcome to Eagles Nest at High Falls. This cabin is a 10-year dream for my husband and myself. This 'new' cabin is perfectly appointed. It was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. You will feel like you are a million miles away from everything but are only a 30 minute drive to many great restaurants and great shopping in downtown Guntersville. You are also only 20 minutes to Guntersville State Park with its hiking, fishing and swimming just to name a few of its amenities. Drive 30 minutes in the other direction and you can choose to visit Buck's Pocket State Park or High Falls Park, where for those with a great sense of adventure, (or a lack of better judgment), can jump off of the 40 foot Falls into to swimming hole below. The cabin itself boasts 8' to 12' wide hand hewn poplar logs, the original pine and poplar floors have been refinished while maintaining as much of the original character and patina as possible. The home is furnished with many period appropriate antiques and a King size bed made from reclaimed barn wood from the 1800's. A study complete with a desk and an incredible view of the gorge below is just off the master bedroom and would make a perfect spot for pastors seeking a time of prayer and retreat and sermon planning. The plush sofa and chairs in the family room make relaxing easy. The rocking chairs on the front porch offer a place to sit and watch the sunset over the mountains around you while listening to the sound of the water running over the two waterfalls on either side of the almost 10 acres atop the mountain. During the winter months Bald Eagles nest along the bluff and can be seen soaring along the rim of the bluff and you will have a front row seat. Eagles Nest at High Falls is the perfect spot for just one and would be an ideal place for a couple’s getaway too, but it will sleep up to 4 people. Please keep that in mind for any prayer and “rest” retreats that you or any of your friends church leaders might need. We do offer Gift Certificates! Quote from a recent visitor to Eagles Nest at High Falls' who needs to go to Gatlinburg when you have a place this amazing right in your own back yard!' Summer and Fall dates are filling up fast! Hurry and make your getaway plans soon! Check out our calendar link to see if one of our open dates would be perfect for you. •••••Tell your husband to whisk you away on a romantic retreat to the mountains. ••••
