About Us

Welcome to Nine-plus private acres of scenic mountain retreat that borders 500,000 acres of Pisgah National Forest.  

Experience secluded relaxation that gets you away from bustling high traffic tourist attractions, and gives you wide open areas to leisurely take in the surrounding mountains.

On top of Eagle Mountain we own a private mountaintop clearing with spectacular 180 degree south, west and northern views.  Build a bon fire in our 20-foot fire pit, surrounded by boulders that create the four points of a compass.  Throw down a blanket in the grassy field and create a picnic your memories will cherish.  Step off the back of our property and get lost hiking onto a path that takes you deep into 500,000 acre Pisgah National Forest and the Linville Gorge.

Or you can choose to remain on one of four decks, stroll through the front yards, play some horseshoes or croquet, enjoy a small campfire, and relax, relax, relax.

Our south driveway is paved and the lodge can be seen from the road.  There is parking at the top of the driveway and also at the patio level midway up the driveway.

Our north driveway is gravel and takes you to the top of Eagle Mountain.  They connect via our "secret passage" by driving behind the Lodge.  Experienced drivers recommended :)
