2 HOME/20 ACRE INSPIRED MOUNTAIN RETREAT - THE ORIGINAL EAGLES NEST!!

The Original Eagles Nest is a 20 acre/2 home 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 1,350 acre resort widely considered the most unique private mountain community in The Blue Ridge Mountains.

The perfect mountain retreat, The Original Eagles Nest offers the peace and seclusion you desire, while still being only 5 minutes from downtown Banner Elk. The estate features The Arrowhead Lodge (VRBO# 745432) and The Eagle Eye Cabin (VRBO# 420796). The Arrowhead Lodge features 3 suites, each with their own full bath, 2 indoor fireplaces, steam showers, 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 house 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 gas grill, gym and yoga room. 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 rushing mountain stream to play in, access to indoor gym/yoga room, 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. Guests are encouraged to bring their own horses, and have access to the barn, stables and pasture for an additional fee. 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!

Why Joanie Byer chose High Country & Blue Ridge Mountains

The Original Eagles Nest is just a 5 minute drive to downtown Banner Elk, which is a destination on its own! In Banner Elk North Carolina, 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. Each season is perfect for outdoor recreation, but there is much more to do here than simply enjoy the splendor of nature. There are also a variety of festivals, community events, upscale shops, and gourmet restaurants to enjoy in this quaint town. Boasting various performing arts centers, theatres, galleries and museums within an easy driving distance, the area showcases internationally recognized artists and performances including Broadway shows, dance ensembles, opera companies and concerts from classical to blue grass. In Banner Elk, you'll able to enjoy a lifestyle that is unrivaled by that of any other location! In addition, the nearby towns of Blowing Rock, Valle Crucis, Grandfather Mountain and Boone add to the unique flavor and sophisticated country charm of the area!
