The Original Eagles Nest is a 2 home/20 acre inspired mountain retreat in Banner Elk, NC. This picturesque and stunning property sits just below, and was the creative inspiration for The Lodges at Eagles Nest, a world-renowned 3,000+ acre resort widely considered the most unique private mountain community in The Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Original Eagles Nest estate features The Arrowhead Lodge and The Eagle Eye Cabin. The Arrowhead Lodge offers 3 bedrooms, each with their own full bath, indoor wood-burning fireplace, steam shower, spacious kitchen open to the richly decorated living and dining area, large deck and outdoor dining area, 6 person hot tub and fire pit. The Eagle Eye Cabin is a totally open authentic tree top log cabin, offering 3 king-sized beds, huge master bath with jetted tub and shower, kitchenette, upstairs loft with its own full bath and balcony, expansive wrap-around deck with outdoor dining and gorgeous mountain views. The homes are connected by wooden boardwalk for easy, convenient access and the estate offers some of the best sunsets Banner Elk has to offer!

An ideal fit for families of all shapes and sizes, The Original Eagles Nest comes complete with hiking trails, a lovely trout pond perfect for fishing on those lazy summer days, a gentle mountain stream to play in, a sledding and tubing hill for winter fun and plenty of outdoor space everyone can enjoy! The homes overlook a lush pasture, barn, and fruit trees that make up this unique mountain vacation rental. Manicured landscaping and flowers in Spring and Summer, brilliant multi-colored leaves in the Fall, and tranquil snow cover in the Winter are a true pleasure to observe. This picturesque mountain escape features all that the NC High Country has to offer without ever having to leave the property.

The Original Eagles Nest offers the peace and seclusion you desire, while still being just minutes from the charming town of Banner Elk.  In Banner Elk, you'll find a mountain playground like no other. Here, each season brings with it something spectacular. The springtime is ablaze with wildflowers, the summers are cool and inviting, fall's foliage is absolutely stunning, and the snows of winter transform these mountains into a picturesque winter wonderland.  In addition, the nearby towns of Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis and Boone, home to Appalachian State University, add to the unique flavor and sophisticated country charm of the area.  Call today to secure this property for your next NC High Country vacation!
