About Michelle and Shannon Lackey
My husband and I purchased 12 acres of land in 2013 surrounded by the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Nantahala National Forest. Little did we know (for the thick pine saplings) that we had a Million Dollar View of a Horseshoe Bend on Fontana Lake and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park! It took viewing Google Maps to see what a gem we had found. We moved to Bryson City after selling our home and printing business in Fletcher NC (close to Asheville). My husband grew up in Bryson City, and I fell in love with this "Gateway to the Smokies" town when we built a house boat at Almond Boat Park in 2013, that now floats on Fontana Lake. We started building Eagle's Landing in Nov 2014 with the help of some great friends and a very talented builder. This is a completely different lifestyle than we're used to, and we are incredibly Grateful for all the Love, Support, and Divine Miracles that We have been Blessed with along the way. Now we're ready to share Eagle's Landing with the world!

Why Michelle and Shannon Lackey chose Bryson City
There's a Peace here that we've never felt before. This place is awe - inspiring. It almost forces you to stop in your tracks every time you look outside. We built Eagle's Landing to give our guests the feeling they were floating on water...and sometimes in clouds. From the Living Room and Master Bedroom there are French Doors that open out onto a 445 sq ft (partially covered) deck that extends out over top of Fontana Lake. From the theatrical morning sunrise to the day's last light, the show this magical place performs is ever changing and always jaw dropping.
What makes this Cabin unique
Eagle’s Landing was designed and built by local artists and craftsmen with great attention to every detail. This cabin is not wheelchair accessible, however it is one level and designed to accommodate most anyone. We call this cabin Eagle's Landing because Bald Eagles land in the pines just 10 feet away from the cabin deck. They're curious and feel very comfortable 'landing' so close to this cabin. It is an unforgettable experience.

Awesome Place-Can’t wait to go back!
We enjoyed our second stay here. It was just as great as the first time. House is great. Views are amazing. Can’t recomend the place enough.
Relaxing in the sky!
A lovely cabin with a stellar view! Sitting on the deck overlooking Fontana Lake, the Great Smoky Mountains in the background and the dramatic changes in the sky were wonderful after a day of touring the area. Very clean and well kept, stylish cabin. The owners are responsive and obviously want guests to have a nice experience. I do wish there would have been a table with umbrella and chairs on the deck as that would have made it nice to sit out there and have our meals. There's a perfect spot for it! Have already recommended to friends to check out this great vacation spot.
The best view of the Tuckaseegee River and The Great Smoky Mountains
If you are looking for a view then this is your place....This was our third time at Eagles's Landing and am already looking forward to the next trip to Bryson City. Michelle and Shannon are the perfect owners...very helpful with any concerns but give you total privacy. the cabin itself is always clean and a perfect place to watch a sunrise and sunset...very serene up in the mountains yet only 10-15 minutes to town. Great base to do activates in the area such as rafting at the NOC and tubing or hiking Deep Creek...we also Hiked Tsali and Clingmans Dome....plus the Casino in Cherokee is just a short drive...cha-ching :D
Pictures don't do it Justice
This place was better than pictured. Everything about this property was top notch, especially the view! We spent most of our trip on the back porch looking at the Smokies. Getting used to the drive up was easy enough, and not too far a drive into the city. We want to come back in the fall!
