Description

Welcome to Eagles Nest at High Falls. This cabin is a 10-year dream for my husband and myself. This 'new' cabin is perfectly appointed. It was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. You will feel like you are a million miles away from everything but are only a 30 minute drive to many great restaurants and great shopping in downtown Guntersville. You are also only 20 minutes to Guntersville State Park with its hiking, fishing and swimming just to name a few of its amenities. Drive 30 minutes in the other direction and you can choose to visit Buck's Pocket State Park or High Falls Park, where for those with a great sense of adventure, (or a lack of better judgment), can jump off of the 40 foot Falls into to swimming hole below. The cabin itself boasts 8' to 12' wide hand hewn poplar logs, the original pine and poplar floors have been refinished while maintaining as much of the original character and patina as possible. The home is furnished with many period appropriate antiques and a King size bed made from reclaimed barn wood from the 1800's. A study complete with a desk and an incredible view of the gorge below is just off the master bedroom and would make a perfect spot for pastors seeking a time of prayer and retreat and sermon planning. The plush sofa and chairs in the family room make relaxing easy. The rocking chairs on the front porch offer a place to sit and watch the sunset over the mountains around you while listening to the sound of the water running over the two waterfalls on either side of the almost 10 acres atop the mountain. During the winter months Bald Eagles nest along the bluff and can be seen soaring along the rim of the bluff and you will have a front row seat. Eagles Nest at High Falls is the perfect spot for just one and would be an ideal place for a couple’s getaway too, but it will sleep up to 4 people. Please keep that in mind for any prayer and “rest” retreats that you or any of your friends church leaders might need. We do offer Gift Certificates! Quote from a recent visitor to Eagles Nest at High Falls' who needs to go to Gatlinburg when you have a place this amazing right in your own back yard!' Summer and Fall dates are filling up fast! Hurry and make your getaway plans soon! Check out our calendar link to see if one of our open dates would be perfect for you. •••••Tell your husband to whisk you away on a romantic retreat to the mountains. •••• •••Also, we will have opened another LARGE cabin rental on Lake Guntersville. Barnwood Lodge and all of our vacation rental cabins were featured on the hit DIY Network show, Barnwood Builders this past Summer as part of Season 3. Tune in to the DIY Network, Barnwood Builders and look for Season 3 Epsiode 7 to see us! ••• Keywords: antique log cabin, pre civil war log cabin, mountaintop cabin More Details

About Owner

About Karen Tillery

× About Karen My husband and I have 4 wonderful children and we manage 5 vacation rental properties which I have renovated. Karen purchased this cabin in 2010 Why Karen chose Albertville The view from this mountaintop is absolutely amazing and was the perfect spot for us to relocate the cabin to. What makes this cabin unique Breathtaking views, hiking, watching the wildlife around you. One of the most unique benefits you will receive is solitude and peace. Guestbook comments from the owner We took a nice three day weekend vacation over Veteran’s day weekend to Guntersville, Alabama. I spent many childhood vacations at Guntersville State Park, so I have many great memories there when I was my son's age. This seemed like a fun place to take him for a weekend filled with nature, quietness and togetherness. When I stumbled upon this cabin that has quite an awesome story behind it, I knew I just had to book it to stay here on vacation. According to the VRBO listing, it was originally built in New Market, Alabama in 1836 and has been carefully moved and rebuilt on its present site high atop the mountain overlooking the Tennessee Valley Divide and Town creek. The story of the cabin is what drew me to the place, but I could not have prepared for just how awe-inspiring it would be once we arrived to this sacred piece of Earth. There was only one other house as far as we could see in any direction. The silence was wonderfully deafening. There aren’t quite enough words to describe how peaceful and beautiful this place was. Seriously, no detail was left overlooked. Everything was perfection. To think that the original cabin was built over 175 years ago just blows my mind. You HAVE to watch the video above if you have a minute to see the whole story from start to finish. For photos from this trip please check out unskinnyboppy.com's blog and look for the post "Dream Rental House Tour: Eagles Nest at High Falls" Nov 2013 1 of 2 ... continue reading

Eagles Nest at High Falls
Beautiful

Loved this beautiful restored home right on the edge of the state park. The sound of the rushing water was wonderful to hear in the mornings with my coffee. My husband and I enjoyed it very much and will return!

Incredible cabin

Eagle's Nest is the quintessential restoration cabin. Magnificently restored, great craftsmanship and very appealing decor. The view from the bluff is spectacular. A truly wonderful experience for us.

Beautiful, tranquil cabin

Tranquil, isolated cabin. Beautiful inside and out with amazing attention to detail! Great place to spend our one year wedding anniversary. We would have moved right in if we could have :)

Eagles Nest at High Falls a must stay.

My wife and I celebrated our twenty fifth wedding anniversary with a three night stay at the Eagles Nest at High Falls cabin. The location is beautiful and the cabin exceeded our expectations. There are many things to do in the area. We enjoyed going to Bucks Pocket state park, Cathedral Caverns state Park, Lake Guntersville state park, and exploring Guntersville. The cabin is awesome and we took time to explore every room. The attention to detail is meticulous, and well thought out. This was a perfect romantic getaway for us, and we will definitely be coming back for another stay.

Shut the door on the world

Lovely place to just make the world go away. Nothing but nature and silence. We loved every minute of it. The cabin is not easy to find but there is little reason to leave if don't want to go back out and face the reality of daily life. We watched the day evolve from the porch, mists, clouds, and an overwhelming sense of relaxing the work week away.
