About Amber, Eagle Watch Rental Management

Hi! We are Liz and Ralph Davis....we purchased our dream retirement home in Maggie Valley, NC. Since we are not quite ready to retire yet, we decided to share our home with others so they can also enjoy quiet and comfort of our favorite place.

Amber, Eagle Watch Rental Management purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Amber, Eagle Watch Rental Management chose Valley Creek Run

We live in the Pacific Northwest, but fell in love with the Smoky Mountains and surrounding area when we travelled the Blue Ridge Parkway a few years ago. Our "cabin" is just perfect for two or a whole family to enjoy. We love the cozy feel it has even though it is over 2,200 sq.ft

What makes this cabin unique

Curling up on the upstairs couch with a fire going and just looking out at the view makes us more relaxed than a week at a spa!

We chose Maggie Valley because of the temperate weather. You don't get those unbearably hot, humid days in the summer, but it does have all four seasons.

Property was very clean and updated.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the view and really enjoyed the recreation room downstairs and also the hot tub. The front porch was nice and the fireplace added a nice touch as it was fairly cool this weekend.

Beautiful & a 5/5!

  • 5 of 5

Great view of Maggie Valley with very easy access. Game room "toys" were in good condition and worked as designed (no junk stuff or missing pieces). There was a problem with potable water for a portion of one day when electricity to the subdivision well was lost... The Property Manager was aware and very pro-active in getting that issue resolved. Beds/mattresses were above average where other places I've stayed were "second thoughts". Kitchen was very well equipped with newer/upscale appliances. Furniture and furnishings were all in good condition and did not show excessive wear. By profession, I am a Property Manager with over 33-years in long-term and some short-term rental leaseholds. I can say, Amber with Eagle Nest Properties, is a knowledgeable NC Licensee who does her job well for both Guest and Owner. I do recommend their services and this Property.

Bear Cub Cabin is the BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best time at Bear Cub Cabin! This cabin had it all!! We played pool every night and got in hot tub on porch which had an amazing view! My 3 and 4 year old had a blast and also us adults! Cabin is located in a great location and we are already talking about coming back! The drive up the mountain to the house was beautiful!! Can’t wait for our next visit to Maggie Valley.

Owner's Response: Thank you for sharing your thoughts about Bear Cub Cabin. The drive up is beautiful, it's like a short hike in the trees without the leg cramps :). This cabin is in my personal favorite neighborhood in the area. I hope you will visit again. Blessings, Amber Bear Cub Manager

Spectacular Views, Awsome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in several cabins in the North Georgia and North Carolina Mountains over the past several years I can honestly say this is one of the nicest, best maintained we have stayed in so far.

The views from the back porch were awesome and relaxing at the same time. Too cold to use the Jacuzzi, but the wives were tempted.

Amber was extremely helpful in all aspects of selecting the cabin and helping out on any questions that arose.

All in All a Mid -Winter Vacation that bears repeating very soon.

Great cabin. Road up is a little hard on those who are scared of heights.

  • 4 of 5

Great cabin for whole family. The road to the cabin and the location can be a bit hard on those who are afraid of heights.

Owner's Response: Sherrie, Thanks for sharing with me that your mom was a bit nervous on mountain roads. I'm so happy she ended up loving the view and your whole group had a great time.

Nice home but heat issues

  • 3 of 5

Propane tank was empty and did not receive gas until afternoon of last day of our stay. Downstairs was totally unusable as temps were in single digits and there was no heat at all. Upstairs had electric heat but fireplace which helps was unusable and at times temperature was uncomfortable. Very unfortunate but otherwise home was very nice, exceptionally clean, and great view! Enjoyed our stay in spite of the heat issue.

Owner's Response: Kathy, I’m so sorry you ran into some issues. I wish you had contacted me, we could have resolved them.. The fireplace has a system that it won’t come on if the house is already above the set temp on the fireplace. It’s as easy as adjusting the set temperature. The downstairs is connected to the electric heat and heats as the upstairs does. We would love to have you back on your next visit. Please know you can contact me even over the weekend. Blessings, Amber
