About Susan C Clark
Hi! Over 20 years ago, my parents began to plan and build their dream home. This became the Irish Eagle. They loved to host parties and entertain guests. When health issues brought them closer to town, we didn't want to lose their legacy. Instead, we decided to keep it in the family and share it with others as a vacation rental. My name is Susan and this is the Irish Eagle, named for our Irish heritage and the Eagles you can spot over the lake. We have two young children and they enjoy the cabin just as much as we do. We are confident that your family will feel the same.

Why Susan C Clark chose Byrdstown
We just love the small town feel of Byrdstown. Surrounded by nature but with all the luxuries of home. The marina is less than a mile away and you can rent any type of boat you'd like. I remember summers with my family when we owned our own pontoon. Waking in the morning to a fresh cooked breakfast, the house smelled like sunscreen and bacon. I can see my dad standing at the stove when I walked up from sleeping downstairs. My mom standing at the table behind the couch, packing towels and cd's for the boat while we loaded the cooler with drinks and snacks for the day. A short ride down the winding road to the marina and we were off. Fishermen lined the rocks to the ramp where our boat lived... a teal blue pontoon. We'd roll up her covers, wipe down the seats, put on our life jackets and off we'd go. Nothing beats that first take off out of the marina... We would always return home just before dusk and walk in to the clean smell of aloe and dryer sheets from fresh towels. Everyone took showers and played cards on the same dining room table still in the house, listening to music, while dad prepared dinner. Usually one of our family favorites like BBQ chicken and potato salad. We would eat... laugh... and hit the cool, crisp, white sheets early. I want this for my kids. And for YOU and whomever you wish to bring. These sweet summer memories stay with us a lifetime.
What makes this House unique
Our home is unique in that there is literally something for everyone. If you come as a family, you may enjoy family friendly Netflix, extensive selection of board games, the pool table, the Play Station 3, bringing movie rentals to watch on the DVD player, ... our kids also enjoy the "bubble tub" and the hot tub outside set on a lower temp. They love to blow bubbles on the outside porch. We have the BEST driveway for sidewalk chalk! Those with babies will find the swings very convenient for rockers, even big kids like to rock in them. Boat rentals at the marina (or even bringing your own! The driveway is large enough for a boat!) provide endless options for families! If you come on an adult only vacation, you have access to the marina and all the boating options, the hot tub, pool table, Netflix, etc.. in addition, there is a wonderful fireplace both downstairs and up, a grill that operates on both charcoal and propane (provided), a fire pit... In virtually every room, there is a place for relaxation. You are a short drive away from a wine and spirits store. The grocery store is nearby for all the ingredients for a special dinner for two. You just can't beat that.

Loved our stay here! View was great. Back deck made perfect place for morning coffee & fire pit at night. Hot tub was a nice bonus! Close drive to Eagle cove marina. Owner & property manager were quick to respond & fix a couple minor issues. Look forward to our next stay!
Property has everything you need. Susan went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. Only wish we could have stayed longer!
Thank you so much, Bridget! We are always happy to see that our vacationers have enjoyed their stay.
We hope to host you again soon!
Fabulous view of lake and beautiful home with all the space and amenities.
We loved our stay at the Irish Eagle. The view from the house and deck was amazing. Works for a family or multi couples. Plenty of open space on main floor and lower level. Great open kitchen to cook in and plenty of seating in kitchen for all to hang out and talk. Perfect for a really relaxing get away.
Thanks so much, Kelly, for your detailed feedback! When the home was designed I know my parents put the open floor plan (especially between the kitchen and living room) as a priority so that they could chat while they entertained guests.
It is wonderful to know that other guests are enjoying their stay in the home!
We hope to have you and your family again soon!
A comfortable, spacious home with a beautiful view of the lake.
The home was surrounded by trees with an opening to a beautiful view of the lake. It was set in a quiet neighborhood with a 10-20 minute drive to nearest stores and gas station. Our family of 6 enjoyed the open space of this lovely, comfortable home. There was something for everyone; board games, pool table, video games, hot tub, a porch swing, and grill. We appreciated the fully equipped home amenities. Susan and her property manager were very prompt and helpful in addressing our minor issues.
Awesome view, very nice place to stay!
Our party of 8 really enjoyed the house and location! The view was great and the house had everything needed for a comfortable stay. The owner, Susan, and the property manager, Marti, were both very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend it.

Pleasant quiet home, lovely Lake view, great deck, and hot tub, too!
The Irish Eagle home was just fine for the 4 of us. Certainly, the downstairs area would be fine for two, maybe four more. The view is perfect; the large deck and hot tub are highlights. The house was very clean with abundant towels, lots of cleaning supplies, soft soap for bathrooms, etc. Appreciated having the washer and dryer. The kitchen was nicely stocked with spices and pots and pans, though short on serving bowls and a few other typical items such as measuring cups. (If there's ever the opportunity to enhance lighting in the kitchen, more would be great!) Made do fine, of course. I also loved the jacuzzi tub and hot tub, both with a sense of privacy along with the lovely Lake view.
Thanks to Marti for responding so quickly and kindly to our queries about accessing the key pad effectively and to the Clark family for sharing Irish Eagle! 😊�☘️😊�
Thanks so much for visiting us, Ernest! I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and we appreciate your thorough feedback on our home. We'll definitely be replacing our missing measuring cups and bowls for the next guests. We hope to see you again at the Irish Eagle!
There is a marina less than a mile away with pontoon and house boats available for rent. Grocery store, liquor store and gas station are a short drive away. Several restaurants are within reach, some offering live music on Saturday. The real benefit of the Irish Eagle is the view and the ability to enjoy nature! You can hike down to the lake from the house and walk the shore at the point! More challenging hikes are available at the local caves. Fishing is abundant at Dale Hollow Lake as well! There is something for everyone!
