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 Nest soon after starting the build of Eagle's Landing (our first completed cabin) 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 Nest with the world!

Michelle and Shannon Lackey purchased this cabin in 2013

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 Nest to give our guests the feeling they were floating on water...and sometimes in clouds. From the Living Room and both Bedrooms there are French Doors that open out onto a 728 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

We designed and built 'Eagle's Nest' to accommodate anyone. This cabin is ♿️ wheelchair accessible with a sidewalk and wheelchair ramp. The large master bedroom and master bathroom include enough space to turn a wheelchair within a 5 foot radius. Without much extra time and materials, we've tried to create a thoughtful home, keeping everyone in mind.

We call this cabin Eagle's Nest because Bald Eagles are always near by the cabin. They can be seen flying close to the cabin's deck, playing in the air at eye level, and even diving into the lake after a fish. This is an unforgettable experience.

Relaxing getaway with beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful time here. Everything was clean and so nice. The views were amazing. We all hated to leave and we can’t wait to come back. Not a single complaint!!! If you’re thinking about staying here look no further. We came to do Polar Express and wanted to stay outside of town. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay!

Perfection.

  • 5 of 5

Breathtakingly beautiful. Peaceful! Convenient! Simply put, perfection! (We also saw TWO bald eagles soaring over the lake for about 20 minutes!) This cabin has everything you need and the hosts are close by should you need anything. We cannot say enough good things about our experience at this lil' slice of heaven.

Lovely location; modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four days at Eagle's Nest -- two bedrooms, two baths. The views are stunning, it's close enough to Bryson City (although we're glad we didn't have to make the twisty drive up from town in bad weather) and although the fall foliage had been delayed by "Hotumn," we enjoyed our time in the mountains.

We didn't need the ADA-compliant features--ramp, wide doorways, etc. but we did note with some dismay that there's no proper dining or breakfast table in the cabin. We ate at the counter, and it's not comfortable for us, and we're relatively able-bodied. Maybe the owners could put a gate-leg table underneath the wall-mounted TV. That would be the only change I would make with this extraordinary property.

Repeat Customers!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Eagle's Landing so much last year that we came back to try out Eagle's Nest in 2017. This place has everything you need and more to relax and enjoy the million dollar view! What a joy to wake up in the clouds and watch the sun rise over the mountains. The cabin is impeccably clean, beds are a dream, and the kitchen is ready for whatever you want to whip up. Couldn't be happier with our mountain getaway house! We will be back again for sure!
