About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

If you want to get away but still be close to all the great attractions and adventure Western North Carolina has to offer, then Eagles Nest Hideaway is for you. This 2600 square foot luxury mountain cabin is located on 15 secluded wooded acres high up on the mountain with views that seem to go on forever. As you wind through the mountain past rhododendrons and mountain laurel, the road actually becomes our private driveway.

As you approach Eagles Nest Hideaway you can feel the stress leaving your body. Though private we are conveniently located within 10 -30 minutes of all the great action, attractions and shopping the area has to offer. You will feel secluded from the world in this beautiful cabin that sits high on the mountain and is bordered on two sides by the Nantahala National Forest.

Relax on the huge 40 foot deck where you can enjoy the spectacular year round views, have a leisurely lunch, read a book or watch the never to be forgotten sunsets. The only sounds you will hear are the birds and the light breezes blowing through the trees. Or you may opt to put in a few CD’s and listen to nice music on the stereo system with outdoor speakers. So sit back in a rocker enjoy gazing at the view with a loved one, your favorite beverage and just reconnect and relax.

Speaking of relaxing…after a day out exploring come home and sit in the huge 6 person hot tub and soak away. Soothe your muscles after a hike, river rafting or just a day out sightseeing. This hot tub is equipped with over 50 jets, lights and is privately located; it’s great for 2 people or a family of 6. Try it at night and gaze up at a million stars in the sky. RELAXING YET!

About Stuart Tabman

My wife and I have lived in Florida for the past 20 years. We started visiting the mountains of North Carolina in the early 90’s and fell in love with the area. We got hooked on river rafting the local rivers and hiking the endless trails. Thus began a search for the perfect property. We wanted enough acreage to have privacy and seclusion, a spectacular view and yet still be close enough to all the action and adventure. We found Eagles Nest in 2000 and that was it we fell in love.

One of our greatest joys is to read the comments about the special vacations and memories people have created at the cabin. Whether it’s a romantic vacation, an anniversary, a family vacation or friends having fun our customers have experienced it all. The peaceful surroundings make Eagles Nest a great place to just talk and reconnect. As one customer wrote “We found the time to have long talks and to talk about nothing! It's as if the view inspired us”.

We hope you enjoy all the area has to offer and keep coming back for new adventures in the mountains.

Why Stuart Tabman chose Upper Peachtree

We bought in the Murphy area for several reasons. Number one we were able to find the prefect dream spot for our vacations. With total privacy, seclusion and no neighbors we are able to escape our once busy corporate lives and the hectic pace of Florida. Murphy offers that quaint small town feel with little stores, restaurants and cafes, Plus the people are all so friendly. Seems like just about anyone you meet wants to chat for awhile so we had to get used to not rushing about as we were so used to in our regular daily lives. Most of all we love the outdoor activities the area has to offer whether it's a picnic at beautiful Fires Creek, a walk on a trail, rafting a river, a pontoon boat ride on a local lake or mountain biking at Jack Rabbit the area has it all

As you wind and climb up the drive to Eagle's Nest, you ultimately arrive at the cabin. The drive dead ends at the cabin... A dead-end with no one around except the beautiful mountains trees and woods. What an exceptional site and view! Although an older cabin, it has such a beautiful view, very nice and comfortable furnishings, and a kitchen with everything you need and more! It turned rainy and cold for several days and the big fireplace kept us cozy while we read, listened to music and enjoyed doing nothing. Having the Master bedroom/Bath and another large bedroom and bath on the main floor also was a nice feature. Murphy is a favorite so we visited the bookstore, several shops, restaurants, and even the casino briefly!

Stuart was SO very accommodating and helped us immediately with a few questions we had. He directed us to Fire Creek too where we walked and hung our hammocks enjoying the rushing waters. I think he is the nicest owner we have ever dealt with! Highly recommend and hope to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review as well as providing excellent information to future renters. Fires Creek makes for a great day trip. It is beautiful, private, close to the cabin and is also one of our favorite ways to spend a day in the mountains. Of course just relaxing at the cabin on the huge deck or in front of the fire is a perfect way to spend a day. Eagles Nest offers total privacy and majestic views. As said in the review our kitchen offers everything you need and Melody ensures all furnishings and decorative accents are comfortable and inviting. It is our goal to ensure every guest has a perfect stay

Total relaxation!! and that view..........

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to NC for a week vacation from Canada for the past 15 years. This was the 4th time we have brought our parents with us. We have stayed in many different rentals. This HOME is amazing! We were glad to have made our first trip to the cabin in daylight because it is secluded (that being a positive)....but after that - no problem any time of day or night. This home is so welcoming and comfortable while being absolutely beautiful inside and out! The pics are true to life, but the feeling while there just makes it that much better!! The only thing you need to bring is food and personal items. We started each day with coffee(s) on the deck watching the "smoke" rise over the mountains. We ended each day with a glass of wine or other beverage on the deck watching the sunset. We ate breakfast & dinner most days at the cabin which was so easy in the very well stocked kitchen. Our day trips to the Cherohala Skyway, Smoky Mountain National Park, Tail of the Dragon, Wayah Rd to Franklin to Fat Buddies and Murphy to Rib Country for delicious southern BBQ and to the Stecoah Diner for catfish were wonderful. We even took a ride on the Smoky Mountain Railroad thru the Nantahala Gorge - that was one of our favorite things to do this time. The fall color was just starting and a couple of weeks later would have been amazing...but maybe next time :). The owners Stuart & Melody were excellent to deal with from beginning to end! Thanks to them for opening their beautiful home to us. Our parents made the comment that each of the 4 times they have come with us, the places just keep getting better and they don't know how we could possibly exceed this year when we come I guess that means they want to accompany us again :) which we are very happy for. We will not hesitate to recommend this relaxing piece of Heaven to our friends & family and hope to return ourselves one day! Thanks so much Stuart & Melody for sharing your home and making our vacation in the mountains so relaxing & enjoyable.

Great location, really loved it

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Few minor things (dishes in dish washer, trash in can outside, down stairs bedroom sheets were dirty) but no real issue. Only mentioning it because we know you are paying some one to clean and maintain property, just wanted to make sure you were aware. Everything was great though we had an awesome trip. The view from that porch is everything we wanted it to be.
