About Michelle and Shannon Lackey
My husband and I purchased 12 acres of land in 2013 surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala National Forest. Little did we know (for the thick pine saplings) that we had a Million Dollar View of a Horseshoe Bend on Fontana Lake and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! It took viewing Google Maps to see what a gem we had found. We moved to Bryson City after selling our home and printing business in Fletcher NC (close to Asheville). My husband grew up in Bryson City, and I fell in love with this "Gateway to the Smokies" town when we built a house boat at Almond Boat Park in 2013, that now floats on Fontana Lake. We started building Eagle's Landing in Nov 2014 with the help of some great friends and a very talented builder. This is a completely different lifestyle than we're used to, and we are incredibly Grateful for all the Love, Support, and Divine Miracles that We have been Blessed with along the way. Now we're ready to share Eagle's Landing with the world!

Why Michelle and Shannon Lackey chose Forneys Creek
There's a Peace here that we've never felt before. This place is awe - inspiring. It almost forces you to stop in your tracks every time you look outside. We built Eagle's Landing to give our guests the feeling they were floating on water...and sometimes in clouds. From the Living Room and Master Bedroom there are French Doors that open out onto a 445 sq ft (partially covered) deck that extends out over top of Fontana Lake. From the theatrical morning sunrise to the day's last light, the show this magical place performs is ever changing and always jaw dropping.
What makes this Cabin unique
Eagle’s Landing was designed and built by local artists and craftsmen with great attention to every detail. This cabin is not wheelchair accessible, however it is one level and designed to accommodate most anyone. We call this cabin Eagle's Landing because Bald Eagles land in the pines just 10 feet away from the cabin deck. They're curious and feel very comfortable 'landing' so close to this cabin. It is an unforgettable experience.

The views are absolutely breathtaking!
These pictures do not do this home justice... you have to see this home to truly appreciate it! We loved everything about this home; the location was perfect, the amazing views were breathtaking, and the home was so cozy yet very modern. We went hiking in Deep Creek to see the waterfalls which were amazing! The drive to the road to no where also offers beautiful views looking back toward this home. My husband and children really enjoyed golfing at the Smokey Mountain Country Club and the views there were so nice. The Cherokee reservation was neat too and if you like to gamble there is a casino. We cannot wait to come back during the summer to enjoy tubing and fishing. This is a home that we will definitely return to many times!
Breathtaking views; owner's attention to detail made the cabin feel like luxury.
The first thing we noticed upon arriving was the quiet! There was such a peaceful quiet in the surroundings that it left us feeling tranquil and rested. The cabin was perfectly supplied with everything we would need. The owners were extremely helpful. This cabin really exceeded my expectations. The decor was simple but beautiful, the furnishings were in perfect condition, the owners had left special everyday household items to make the stay easier. The views were extraordinary and we were able to see the eagle several times from the deck and yard. There was plenty of firewood and starter available for the outdoor fire pit. Even though it had a feeling of being hidden away and remote, any stores we needed were close by and Eagle's Landing was centrally located for us to visit different places: Smokey MountainNational Park,Charlie's Bunion trail, Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest, and Huckleberry Knob. All excellent trails! And the drive to each of them was a treat with spectacular views. Although the pictures are beautiful on the site, pictures really cannot do justice to the mountain views at this cabin. From the bedroom, the living area, back deck and even through the kitchen window...it is all stunning! We had all the weather possibilities from sunny skies, rainy with full clouds covering everything, to even dusting of snow during our stay and the views were still spectacular no matter what the conditions were. We hope to come back in the future!
Amazing view!! Extra clean and cozy cabin. Will definitely stay again.
This cabin was perfect in every way! Clean, beautiful views, everything we needed. We were planning a return trip from the moment we arrived. There was even a cute little Christmas tree and other decorations to make it festive!
Incredible home and stunning views!!!
We will definitely be back again! Eagles Landing was beautiful and the house was immaculate. Thank you for such a memorable family trip!!
Eagles Landing is just as described. It is a quiet place on the top of a mountain with a magnificent view. The cabin is spotless and comfortable. Great Smokey Mountain National Park is just across the river offering more spectacular scenery. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
