There’s also music every weekend—from Memorial Day to Labor Day—with our Summer Concert Series for members and guests. Boulder Park
This conservation area is comprised of 10 acres of rock outcroppings and large granite boulders that are uniquely positioned for rock climbing, hiking, or simple relaxation. Guests can stay in our luxury “Boulder Pods,” offering cozy comfort and terrific views of Grandfather Mountain. North Pavilion
Just as Great Camp serves as a gathering spot for families on the southern end of the property, so the gorgeously conceived North Pavilion attracts families with its gorgeous views and variety of amenities and activities for all ages, including: Sportsman Lodge, Equestrian Event Facility & Winery, Paintball Course, Sports Court, Stables & Pastures, Band Stage, Equestrian Trails, Dog Park, Multi-Use Ball Field, Hiking Trails, Snow Tubing/Sledding, and Fire Pit.
Great Camp hearkens back to an idyllic, bygone era—before cell phones and mind-numbing social apps.

One of the newest, more unique amenities at Eagles Nest—and throughout the High Country—is Boulder Park, a conservation area comprised of 10 acres of rock outcroppings and large granite boulders that are uniquely positioned for rock climbing, hiking, or simple relaxation. This park is located about one mile from the main entrance at an elevation that offers terrific views of Grandfather Mountain.
Double Eagle Lodge
This convenient amenity affords on-site lodging for guests or families building a home. The Double Eagle Lodge is located on the south side of the mountain, just down the road from the Great Camp, and features four beautifully appointed staterooms, including a family suite. The Lodge boasts some of the best profile views of Grandfather Mountain to be found in the entire region. At night, guests can look down and see the soft glow of nearby Banner Elk.
Located near the southern end of Eagles Nest is the picturesque Eagles Nest River Club—an exclusive gated entrance private club offering memberships to property owners at Eagles Nest. Located along the banks of the famous Elk River, the River Club grants members various amenities, including 2,000 feet of riverfront on one of the most coveted trophy trout fishing waterways on the East Coast. Members also have access to a bait-and-tackle shop and reclaimed wood lockers that can be purchased and used for storing fishing equipment and apparel.
Access to the River Club depends on the membership of the home you are renting.
UTV/ATV & Hiking Trails
This is fast-becoming one of the most sought-after amenities amongst families living in the High Country—and amenity made all the more special because of its scarcity. In fact, we are one of the few communities in the region to not only offer UTV/ATV trails, but to have an extensive network of trails that offer scenic rides deep inside lush forests, over majestic ridge lines, and through fertile valleys. It’s exhilarating. It’s fun. It’s something your family will want to do again and again.
Nursery & Farm
One of the first things you notice about Eagles Nest is how healthy and vital the land is. Fed by numerous creeks and streams and blessed with a mild summer climate, the ground is fertile and healthy. It lends itself to a wide variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables—from April to October. Even better, homeowners can take advantage of our bountiful crop that is provided by the Eagles Nest Nursery and Farm. During the summer months, families can select from a variety of fresh squash, tomatoes, peppers, and melons. And in the fall, the garden will unveil lettuce, carrots, kale, brussel sprouts, cabbage, beets, collards, and other cool-weather vegetables.
Eagles Nest Winery
This stunning facility is a reclaimed barn that was originally built in 1890 and stood on a family farm in Eastern Tennessee. The structure was carefully selected to complement the luxurious rustic aesthetic of Eagles Nest and is currently being meticulously converted into a Wedding & Event Facility, as well as a custom Winery. Construction is underway with a projected completion date of Spring 2019.
Set amidst the natural beauty of the High Country, Eagles Nest promotes an active, healthy, natural living experience. Our multi-day Wellness Retreats and 1-day Wellness Seminars are designed to give guests the tools they need to improve mental clarity and physical well-being. For our multi-day retreats, stay in our luxury accommodations and enjoy programs led by a double-board certified doctor in integrative and family medicine, a professional chef, and a mental health therapist. Each participant will learn health-forward lifestyle tips and wellness activities, as well as farm-to-table, whole-food eating that can be utilized at home.
