Relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We met up with a group of friends here for a long weekend and it was relaxing ! The cabin had all we needed and the General Store was close for anything we forgot. We enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the creek. The men had fun fishing for trout in the nearby springs. Thanks for a great place to get away!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the extra time to write the positive review. It is nice to hear that you had a great and relaxing time at the Eagles Nest Cabin. We agree with your comment about sitting on the deck listening to the fresh water stream as the water rolls over the rocks. We have heard from other guests that the trout fishing in the stream was both fun and rewarding, they also said it is fun just to wade in the cool waters. In addition, other guests have mentioned they enjoyed watching all of the birds that visit the area. The Highlandville valley is a nice place to visit.
