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.

3 Bedrooms & 3 Baths: The downstairs bedroom has a king-size bed, gas fireplace, satellite TV, deck access to the hot tub and second TV just for the Wii; the private bath has double sinks and a jetted bath tub. A second bedroom in the loft has a king-size bed and private full bath with a tub and shower combination. The third bedroom is on the main floor and has a queen-size bed and bath across the hall with a tub and shower combination.

 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 help you make beautiful mountain memories.

My family and I drove up from Myrtle Beach to enjoy some quiet time. This beautiful home did not disappoint. We have enjoyed family meals and movies. It was nice to have our teenage boys spend time with both of us. We played chess and cards. Thanks for leaving the games available.

We spent 5 beautiful days in this lovely home. We enjoy trips to the NC Mountains and staying in such lovely accommodations makes it even more special. We don't want to leave but we will look forward to returning another time. A special thank you to the folks at Great Smokys Cabin Rentals. They've always been so helpful and kind. Things we did while we were here: Drove to Cades Cove, beautiful, rode the Smoky Mtn Train, Drove across Blue Ridge Parkway, Visited the Cradle of Forestry and relaxed in the Hot Tub. Got some much needed rest!

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The instructions/directions were well written and easy to follow, all my questions were answered promptly and professionally, very easy to work with!! We enjoyed our stay at Sun Eagle! The cabin was very relaxing and the view was spectacular! All the amenities were covered from the utensils in the kitchen to gas for the grill, there were even games for the Wii. We loved the hot tub and the seclusion. We went Fishing, hiking, NOC outdoor center, lunch at Bryson City, visit the Road to Nowhere'

This cabin is amazing! The location is private, but I can see that it would be hard to get up there in bad weather. Luckily, we had no issues. The communication was detailed and sufficient. Arriving late yet getting in using a keypad made things so much easier since we had multiple couples staying in the cabin together. The view made it understandable to leave uncovered. Highly Recommend!

They saved my anniversary trip! With 2 weeks until the trip, I was devastated. In a matter of a few hours, they had found the perfect cabin for us. They were responsive, empathetic and understanding. I have used GSCR in the past, and will only use them in the future. Mishaps happen, but how they handled it speaks volumes about their customer service. Thank you again!

As we depart, a shroud of mist fills the mountain valley. The trees are a stark reminder that it is winter but in our hearts we visualize all the seasons that turn the landscape into a myriad of colors and peaceful moods. We can hope to return someday and bask in the serenity of the Sun Eagle but for now, we are reminded that someone once said, "I go and prepare a place for you."

The Sun Eagle Lodge was absolutely perfect. Amazing views from both decks. Large, open living room and a well equipped kitchen. There's a hot tub on the lower deck with direct access from the master suite. The master suite is like it's own separate cabin, isolated on the lower level by a long stairway and it's own full bath, semi-private deck, and fireplace. Did I mention the hot tub on the lower deck?? Stunning.

We were so thankful to have a beautiful place for our college friend group to get together. We all graduated from WCU between 2014 -2015 and have since moved all over. It is nice to be able to spend time with each other - including 2 new additions to the family! We all consider the mountains are home and this breathtaking view was perfect.

The Rao family loved the Mother's Day weekend stay. The attention to detail in the cabin is amazing - the kitchen set up, the games, the CD's, the extras in the rooms. "It is a very well maintained cabin. Lovely view of the mountains made for a very unique experience of staying here. Coffee on the patio and the Hot Tub were icing on the cake.

We came for family vacation, which brought our college kids together with us. IT WAS WONDERFUL! The View is amazing. We will return for sure! We even had a light dusting of snow on Christmas Eve, which made it even more magical! Every detail was thought out! Loved reading others comments and it was helpful to have brochures available. They even called to make sure we made it in safely!
