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 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 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 & Peaceful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was amazing!! The photos do not do it justice. It was so clean, spacious, and tastefully decorated. All the amenities are such a nice touch. The accessibility of the cabin was A+++. It was so nice to be able to stay in a cabin that was truly accessible. The view is absolutely beautiful and amazing. We saw a bald eagle on a couple of occasions. Michelle was very nice and helpful! I cannot honestly say enough wonderful things about the cabin, views, & the entire trip! This is by far the cleanest and one of the nicest cabin we've stayed in. We will definitely stay here again! Thank you for sharing your cabin with us!

Awe Inspiring View!

  • 5 of 5

Although we saw the view in the listing photos, it is so much more amazing in person. We had been to Lake Fontana before and enjoyed it's beauty, but we had never before seen the lake from a high perspective. It is gorgeous! We are so grateful that Michelle and Shannon shared their beautiful piece of the World with us.

The cabin was well designed and built. They did an excellent job decorating; using furnishings that are modern, comfortable, and clean. It all seemed so perfect for the location. We came with another couple so the two bedroom and bath situation worked well. Each bedroom faced the beautiful view and had doors to go onto the deck. The deck itself covers the entire back of the cabin's footprint and increases the living space greatly. If the weather is nice, this is where you'll want to be. Off to the side and rear of the cabin is a fire pit which we used our first night to enjoy a beautiful evening. They even included the firewood to make the fire! We all love to cook so we cooked dinner there every night. The kitchen is well appointed.

Michelle and Shannon are wonderful hosts. We highly recommend this place to others. It would work for couples and also for families with children. The living room couch pulls out for more sleeping arrangements. There is much to do in the area if you've never been here before. Bryson City is close by as is the Great Smokie Mountain National Park. You can also rent a pontoon boat on Lake Fontana not too far from the cabin.

We hope to be back. It was a nice get away vacation for us in a beautiful part of the World. So far this is the best VRBO we have stayed in.

Fantastic Cabin Stay

  • 5 of 5

Before we even got into the cabin we were bowled over with the beauty of the mountains and Lake Fontana. The cabin was also beautiful. It was like we had stepped into an HGTV set. But it was also very comfortable. All of the main rooms had mountain views. We plan to visit again.

Perfect fall getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Eagle's Nest could not have been better! The cabin has a great layout and is spotlessly clean...and the views are just ridiculously gorgeous! We lucked out with our timing and the autumn colors were peaking - so we spent a lot of time enjoying the big deck and views. We even had two bald eagles fly right by! Michelle and Shannon have created a such a special place - I really appreciated all the little touches like a bag of local coffee to enjoy and a pair of binoculars to use.... I can't wait to go back for another stay!
