About Cathy Limbaugh

Two of us are retired, one from Goodyear Tire and Rubber in Gadsden, Alabama. The other from the Alabama Institute for Deaf and Blind in Talladega, Alabama. Our children are co-owners. We love to hike and ride along the scenic highways.

Cathy Limbaugh purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Cathy Limbaugh chose Blue Ridge

We purchased this home as a family vacation spot after several years of visiting Blue Ridge, Georgia. We love Blue Ridge because it is close enough to Atlanta and North East Alabama to make quick weekend trips. We love the apples, hiking, waterfalls and hope to enjoy kayaking with children and grandchildren.

What makes this cabin unique

Eagles Rest gives you the feeling of forest living yet it is only 5 minutes from town. Dominoes will deliver and you are only 1 mile from Merciers apple orchard where you can get the best fried apple pies around. All roads are paved including the short driveway!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The whole family gathered for Christmas the weekend before Christmas. We made cookies and decorations for the tree. We sat by the outdoor fireplace and made s'mores. The children played pool and foosball. Everyone had comfortable accomodations. Eagles Rest is a beautiful setting for any family get-together but especially for Christmas. I look forward to many more Christmas visits.

The Ideal Log Cabin

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed at Eagle's Nest for over seven years not only with family, which includes six grandchildren, but also with friends. Family and friends request each year to return to this cabin. The mountainous view is outstanding, the accommodations are excellent with plenty of room and seating for everyone, and the drive to town takes about 5 minutes. We are looking forward to our next visit.

The cabin had everything you would need and then some. I could sit and look at the mountain views for hours. It never got old.

Fantastic views and very well equipped house. Pool table and shuffle board in the lower level provides a lot of entertainment as it was very cold and outdoor activities were out of the questions.

Owner's Response: When you were here the last year on the same weekend we had 6 inches of snow! So glad you enjoyed the game room.
