Wonderful Getaway at Lake with Scenic Mountain Views

  • 5 of 5

I was amazed at just how perfect that actual setting of the property matched the description of the website. We have loads of fun on the water and on the dock. We caught many kinds of fish. Everyone had a wonderful time whether by the fire pit roasting smores or grilling out on the deck while overlooking the lake. The owner had a small shed with free firewood so we didn't have to stop and buy any wood for the fire pit. The vacation home was so well located that anything we needed was within minutes of the property. I would highly recommend the property to any family who wants a nice atmosphere of sun, fun, water, or just relaxing. There was plenty of activities to do from corn hole boards, fishing, boating, grilling, lounging in sun, or hiking in the woods. The owner provided us with a kayak so we could just paddle around the lake. Most places we have visited on the lake don't have Wi-Fi. The property comes with Wi-Fi. Personally, I don't come to the lake to get on the computer or phone, but it was handed for some of our family members. There is enough pots, pans, dishes, plates, etc. for all of us to use. If you are going to be there for more than a few days, I recommend you bringing papers plates and plastic wear. Otherwise, you will have to watch the dishes. It is no big deal though, the property has a dishwasher. There are two tables outside. One on the upper deck with four chairs and one on the lower deck with six chairs. When it rained we could sit outside under the canopy and still enjoy the view or just watch the rain and wildlife. We got lucky and were able to rent a boat from one of the local marinas, Flat Hollow. The marina owner told us that in the future if we wanted to rent a boat in the summer we better call weeks if not a couple of months ahead of time because the boats get rented real fast. The neighbors were far enough away from the property so you had privacy. One of the neighbors, Jim, was really super nice. We priced a lot of properties before choosing this one. Most of the properties we looked at were three to four hundred dollars a night. I could not believe we got this one at a much cheaper price. Overall, we were very satisfied with the property.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of the Eagles Nest. We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. A positive guest experience is something we take great pride in. Yes, you are correct about the boats in the summer. It is difficult to get a boat in the summer especially if you wait until the last minute. Thanks again for your feedback. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest.

Vacation visit July 16-19 2017

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at the lake tremendously. The proper was great, the rooms are large and well maintained, there were 6 in our group and we never felt crowded. The large decks are wonderful for sitting out and enjoying the view of the lake. The private dock was a great addition, we were able to leave our rafts etc. there at night without issue. The fire pit was nice to have as well. The owner is very responsive to any need. I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful setting, helpful owners!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the property was beautiful and peaceful. We ate lunch and dinner on the covered deck daily. Our kids especially loved making s'mores around the fire pit every night, watching the fish from the dock and swinging on the tire swing. The house was comfortable and perfect for our needs. I appreciated the safety locks on the decks which ensured our little one couldn't travel down the steps without an adult. The owners were very helpful and responsive to any questions.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. We also like the fire pit for the s'mores. The covered deck is nice to keep the sun/rain off if you are eating outdoors. It was a pleasure to have you as our guest.

Great Place to Stay, Great View, Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

This place was very roomy, great location on the lake and the best view. You can go wrong staying here. The only downside was there are alot of stair to carry food and coolers down to the boat. So nice have direct lake access with your own dock. I would stay again no question. The owner was very helpful since it was our first trip to Lake Norris.

2016 August Vacation at Eagles Nest in Speedwell , TN

  • 5 of 5

This year was our third year staying at Eagles Nest. My family truly has a phenomenal time. This property accommodates our large family of 10 and Steve Fuson, the owner is exceptional in assisting with any issues we have (we really haven't ever had any issues because this house offers everything)!

The view of the lake and East Tennessee mountains are beyond description and the house's amenities are superior. We look forward to future stays at this location
