Near Bryson City – From its mountainside perch, the Sun Eagle Lodge gazes out towards the secluded splendor of the Smoky Mountains. Peering out over the powder white sea of clouds the warmth of the sun will touch your face and bring a joyful smile. It’s not only a beautiful view. It’s a beautiful life! Come live it with us at the Sun Eagle Lodge.
Filled with eclectic, upscale country decor our newly built retreat features two master suites with king beds and one queen bedroom with a full bath across the hall. The living areas begin with a high-ceilinged great room with large, comfortable buttery leather couches where you can make some popcorn and enjoy our selection of DVD’s on the HDTV, curl up with a book or just have some family laughs or a romantic moment in front of the stone fireplace. The open kitchen features granite countertops with seats to chat in the morning at the island bar. The Sun Eagle interior was designed for comfort and style but nothing can compare to the pure beauty of the nature that surrounds you outside.
From our upper deck you can spend the day grilling or basking in the sun on a lounge chair. When you’re ready to cool off head down to the tree shaded lower deck to relax and take in the view in one of our rocking chairs. At night you and your friends can slip into the hot tub and stare up at the moonlit sky above.
Outdoors enthusiasts will be in paradise! Just off your deck or out your front door you can grab a set of binoculars and catch the hundreds of species of birds or take a walk along the tree lined winding roads on Baines Mountain.
Sun Eagle Lodge will set your spirit soaring.

I took this trip with family and friends and everyone loved it... the view from the cabin was wonderful. The cabin location was high enough to look out at the mountains. We wanted a cabin with a lot of windows just for the scenery. tHe cabin had everything we needed far as cooking and other things. We also visited the casino that was about 15-20 mins away not to far. We had a problem with this cabin but we gave them a call and it was fixed within mins. Yes I will visit again. Read more

My family and I have stayed at over a dozen cabins in the past few years on various trips we've taken. Our motto is to never stay the same place twice and always experience something new. This cabin was one of the best we've ever stayed in! Truly is fully stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen, hot tub, bath - everything! Beautiful views, good beds, tons of electronic equipment. This cabin really was the cherry on top of our trip! Thanks Gsmcr! Read more

The Perfect Mountain Getaway!

You will not regret choosing to stay at this cabin! You've heard the description "nestled high up in the beautiful Smoky Mountains"? That describes this location perfectly. The views from the rocker on the porch were the ideal place to sit over coffee in the morning or wine in the evenings. And inside this cabin is wonderfully furnished and maintained. We have rented places for years, and this was one of the best stocked kitchens we've experienced. Five Star!! Read more

This was our first cabin rental without our father with us. Mom had always heard of our vacations that her children have taken. With the passing of our Dad we took her on one of our vacations and it was to this cabin. Mom had a great time , we kept her very relaxed while the kids went and played,rafting,tubing ,train ride. Dad had always taken us to places like this and I believe he was with us the whole time.
Thank You sooo much for a truly unforgettable time at the cabin in the mountains! Alan and Family Read more

My family and another family decided to take a trip to the mountains. After searching several sites, and viewing lots of properties, we decided to stay at this property managed by Great Smokys Cabin Rentals. This log cabin had everything we needed to have a fabulous weekend getaway. We were less than 15 minutes away from the Nantahala NOC. The cabin was perfect for us! The view was amazing! The management company was very helpful and answered all of our questions in advance. Fyi if your wife talked you into going to the mountains during football season, don't worry they have Espn and Espn2. That was very important to me. Read more
Thank you, J. Free, for taking the time to review Sun Eagle Lodge. We're glad the cabin was perfect for you and that you were able to enjoy your football!

From start to finish we received wonderful service. The website pictures and descriptions left nothing to chance. We knew before arriving what we were going to experience and the anticipation was wonderful. The home was beautifully decorated and had all the amenities that we have at home - washer,dryer, dishwasher, internet, and cell phone connection. Hot tub was available,but . we did not use.
Our trip was planned for the mountain views, the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad, the Smokey Mountain National Park, and the Road to Nowhere. All met our
expectations, plus more. The night sky from the cabin was breathtaking. It stars looked like diamonds on a dark velvet sky. We had a beautiful stay in a beautiful cabin! Read more

Fabulous accomodation in a perfect setting
Left on 04/18/2012 for a stay in August 2011 | Cheryl
Situated a short drive away from Bryson City this lodge is set amongst trees but with fabulous views across the mountains. The lodge is perfectly equipped with everything we needed. Our children particularly enjoyed the hot tub and collecting wood for the firepit in the woods.Would recommend tubing,rafting,riding,golf and jetboats all of which are within 30 - 40 minutes drive away.Would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay somewhere a little bit special...

I rented this place in January 2011 and we couldn't have had a nicer place and dealt with nicer people! They were getting some serious snow when we got there and they did all they could to make sure we had a great time(even letting us borrow 2 pairs of gloves because we left ours)! Hoping to go back as soon as I can! Best cabins in NC! Read more

Awesome view and beautiful cabin.
Left on 05/31/2011 for a stay in April 2011 | A FlipKey verified reviewer
My husband and I and two other couples came from Indianapolis In and trailered our cycles to ride the Tail of the Dragon. The cabin is very spacious and nice. It had all of the things we needed to make our stay enjoyable. My husband and I stayed in the room downstairs with the sliding doors leading to the hot tub which we needed and enjoyed.The cabin was clean and it is beautiful. When we make another trip down sometime in the future I will request to get the same cabin. Thank you for sharing. Read more
