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.

An all around amazing place - best views

  • 5 of 5

I could not ask for more. These people really pay attention to the small details. We went for our short honeymoon. There was a nice bottle of wine with a nice note and amazing views. The cleanliness could not have been better. It truly feels like you are the first people to stay there. I often sat by the fireplace and enjoyed a nice bourbon while gazing at the mountains. Go to this place and you will not regret it. We are already contemplating going back for our anniversary.

Stunning view in a spotlessly clean house

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

View is almost surreal, you won't be disappointed (good on the owners for finding this million dollar view)

Very clean - really I was shocked by how clean the house was

Grocery store 15 minutes away

Organized check-in and check out

Everything you need in the kitchen is there

Decorated very nicely

Close to downtown if you want to do the train ride

Toiletries provided

Perfect size for two couples

Comfortable furniture

Only an hour to Ashville

Cons:

Need more cleaning supplies - only one thing of paper towels, two garbage bags, one dishwasher soap, no counter cleaner

Wish beds were king size, only queen

No hot tub

Two other houses on property (does not obstruct view)

You won't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

What a truly incredible getaway! This cabin has everything you need a view better than you can imagine - the pictures don't even do justice to the unbelievable beauty of this spot! We had big plans for the weekend but ending up spending a lot of our time sitting on the back porch watching the eagles dive over the water and even saw a bear meandering along the shoreline. The owners have truly thought of every comfort and made this an incredibly relaxing place to get away from it all. The little touches are what make this place really shine - in addition to the best view in the Smokies! We can't wait to come back! Thank you!

Beautiful home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Even though the description and photos provided accurately describe this property, We were still blown away by it. All the amenities of home in a breath-taking setting. The cabin itself was extremely clean, well decorated and comfortable but my favorite part was being out on the wonderful deck enjoying the peace and serenity of the spectacular 180 degree views of the river, mountains and ever changing sky. Sitting by the firepit with a glass of wine at sunset cannot be beat at this place. This was our first trip to Bryson City and liked it so much am planning to go back next year and hope to stay here again...Everyone who saw the pictures I posted on Facebook at the cabin were very impressed and I have recommended it to a few friends already. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and were very helpful in every aspect, I only ask if they ever decide to sell this cabin that I am first in line!
