About the property

6 bedroom,, 5.5 Bathroom, sleeps 12,

Get ready to be more than impressed as you enter this gated estate with the eagle atop the roof for which the property is named. Get ready to ooh and ahh as you pull into the timber framed porte cochere and pass the water feature with koi at the doorway. And finally, hold tight to your fantasies as you actually enter Eagle's Landing at Big Bear Estate, a 7,200 square foot designer, art-filled home which sits 4,200 feet above Hazelwood Village and Waynesville. Boasting 5 bedrooms (including two master suites,) two kitchens, upstairs and downstairs living rooms, five and one/half baths, wine cellar with newly added man cave, this is truly an upscale dream home.

Eagle's Landing at Big Bear Estate is one of three different houses for rent on the estate. All three of the estate properties are listed on VRBO and can be viewed eventually by selecting the link at the bottom of this page. The properties are available as separate rental units or the estate can be rented as a whole for large gatherings.

Eagle's Landing has a large eat-in kitchen complete with butler's pantry, double ovens, gas cooktop, and all the top-of-the-line kitchen amenities expected in a upscale home of this size and nature. A washer and dryer is conveniently located off the kitchen for upstairs laundry.

The beautifully furnished upstairs Henredon Dining Room will seat twelve.

The Great Room, which looks out to the spectacular mountain view, features a bar, is artfully, designer furnished/decorated, and boasts a gas fireplace with walk-out to the covered verandah furnished with comfortable seating, propane fire pit and a top-of-the-line barbecue.

The main floor, view-focused Master Suite with separate study, king bed, walk-in closet, Jacuzzi tub with wall mounted t.v., separate shower and toilet closet also boasts a gas fireplace, large flat-screen t.v., and walkout to the verandah.

The downstairs Family Room is complete with full kitchen, dining table that seats eight, pool table, electronic dart board, gas fireplace and a large flat screen television that features both cable and DirectTV.

The Wine Cellar has a good wine inventory available for a fee.

The newly added 'Man Cave' is a true 'getaway from it all place' for enjoying a drink and cable or DirectTV show in absolute privacy.

The Second Master Suite is a lovely timber-framed gem above the garage complete with full bath, sitting area, verandah, queen sized bed, gas fireplace, Keurig coffee maker, and large screen television.

The property has a meandering walkway up to the hot tub, outdoor wet bar and tennis court with a basketball net. It boasts a pond with a fountain, a barn for social use, several flat areas with views that would be perfect for small weddings or picnics. There is a short nature walk. A Mercedes SUV which seats 7 and driver is available upon request/fee. Airport pickup/dropoff is available upon request/fee.

This home is appropriate for families, multiple couples travelling together, businesses looking for a great retreat, and newlyweds-to-be looking for a perfect small wedding venue or a place to house their guests. The fact that the estate with its dynamite views and property is located just 4 miles from Waynesville and 30 miles from downtown Asheville makes it a wonderful choice of home away from home for those who want the views, the outdoors and easy accessibility. Since there are separate entrances to the upstairs and downstairs, full kitchens and laundries both up and downstairs, and a door that can be closed and locked between up and downstairs the 'Big House' is perfect for families/couples who want to pool their resources and vacate to a place that provides privacy for separate parties who want to get together only at certain times or not at all.

This easily accessible home is 5 minutes from downtown Waynesville, 35-40 minutes from Asheville, 25-30 minutes from Cataloochee Ski Are, 30 minutes from Cherokee/Harrah's Casino. It is equipped with a whole house generator for those rare times when the power is out in the area.

About Ann Cramm

The owner of Eagle's Landing at Big Bear Estate is a businessman who resides and spends most of his time primarily in Florida. His business, life with his children, and travels prevent him from using his lovely property in Haywood County as often as he would like, thus his decision to list it as a VRBO property.

I, Ann Cramm, the happy property manager, am a longtime resident of Western North Carolina, live in Waynesville year round and am always accessible.

Ann Cramm purchased this estate in 2004

Why Ann Cramm chose Waynesville

I cannot say enough good things about this property. It is simply exquisite. Jim has lavishly decorated the house with local art and fixtures. He did a big addition several years ago which dramatically improved the house. He has tirelessly started and completed projects that keep improving the house and grounds. In short, he has spared no expense in making this a premier property in Haywood County.

What makes this estate unique

This property is located in lovely, quaint, historic Waynesville, which being centrally located in Western North Carolina, makes us approx. 40 minutes to Asheville, approx. 30 minutes to Cataloochee Ski Area, approx. 30 minutes to Cherokee and Harrah's Casino; approx. 1 hour from Nantahala River Rafting, approx. 45 minutes from Smokey Mountain Railway; 15 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.Our location is perfect for enjoying ALL that the Smokey Mountains have to offer.

Waynesville boasts two state of the art fitness facilities, a progressive and very active performing arts center, a downtown center filled with shops, arts, crafts and restaurants; nearby Lake Junaluska is the perfect place to walk your pets and enjoy our beautiful scenery.

Beautiful home with a lot of amenities

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with a lot of amenities. Breathtaking views. Loved the custom wine cellar! I'm so grateful they had all of the things one would need on hand to cook. We brought our own food, but the condiments, spices and sauces were a great bonus. The room over the garage was our favorite. Would definitely go back.

Wonderful time and great house with incredible views!!! A++++

  • 5 of 5

Every year our family rents a house to celebrate Christmas together early. This house was perfect and provided plenty of room for everyone. The views were also wonderful and the town just what we hoped for. So many great restaurants and small shops. Make sure if going in December you check the town calendar. We were there during the Christmas evening celebration that included horse drawn carriage rides, carolers and shops open into the evening to name a few. Thank you for making this time so special. Katrina

Even better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

8 adults shared this home over Christmas break. Despite some pretty miserable weather we had a wonderful time, definitely because we had this house to be "Stuck in". The home is just lovely with art in every direction inside and outside the house. Even on the roof on the chimney! When it rained we were able to play pool, darts, watch movies, and puzzles. There are 2 kitchens (one in the lounge room downstairs) and 2 laundry rooms! The views are wonderful with rushing creeks/waterfuls in view from the kitchen. There is a koi pond by the front door and heated floors in the master bath. Owner did not scrimp on a thing.
