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!

Michelle and Shannon Lackey purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Michelle and Shannon Lackey chose Bryson City Area

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.

Fantastic cabin with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and am already looking forward to next visit. The Cabin itself is very clean, comfortable and tastefully decorated. You can't beat the location and views, on a clear day you get fantastic sunsets and if it is raining you get great smoke from the mountains, very serene and beautiful..On this trip we saw two Eagles right below our patio and also saw a racoon swimming across the river! It's a short drive to anywhere in town or any activites such as Deep Creek for hiking and tubing, Harrah's Cherokee Casino and NOC for rafting. Thank You again Michelle and Shannon for sharing your lovely cabin with us, Two thumbs up!

The ultimate vacation in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing family vacation with our teenage girls. The cabin offers the most amazing view and we grilled steaks on the grill and made smores over the fire pit and ate breakfast on the deck overlooking the sunrise and the boats on the lake. It's within 30 min to so many entertainment options. We went horseback riding and hiking to waterfalls and zip lining at the NOC. It was definitely one of our best family vacations and we look forward to staying here again in the future!
