“Fabulous Getaway!”

Reviewed 7 Jan 2016

I stayed at Soaring Eagle for 3 nights while I was looking at properties in the area. This home is terrific in every way- the design & decor, the view, the appointments. It is obvious that you are visiting the owners second home, not just a rental property. Soaring Eagle is cozy, easy to get to yet secluded on a ridge, safe and comfortable. I've rented many homes and I would rate this my favorite- so much so, that I am coming back next summer! If you are looking in the Maggie Valley/ Waynesville area and need accommodations for 3 couples +, you won't beat Soaring Eagle.

Owner's reply: Mo, We are so happy that you and your wife will be back this summer for two months. I wish I could assist you with your search for real estate while you are in the area, but as you know we have a very important commitment this July. Call me at any time to discuss communities, etc. if you have any questions. Enjoy our home. I should have some herbs, flowers, etc. planted for you when you get there.

“Great views from beautiful house”

Reviewed 20 May 2015

The original house we were assigned did not have running water (pipe problems) so we were moved to another spectacular house. Both houses were beautiful, but the second one was more comfortable because it was 2 floors instead of 3 on the first. Very personable staff, with quick effective responses to our needs. Houses were fully equipped with all needed for a comfortable stay.

“Work with a Retreat Setting!”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2013

We rented this beautiful home will we were working at the Junaluska Confrence center. The owners were absolutely wonderful to work with and they prepared a beautiful peaceful place for us to stay. The outside porch was a peaceful and relaxing place to have my morning cup of tea. One regret was that we didn't have time to use the jeep that they offer to their renters to take a ride through the beautiful smoky mountains. But they were close to the lake around the Junaluska grounds so that we could enjoy an evening walk after our long days of work. My husband and another coupled enjoyed our stay and will be looking forward to booking it again for our next year's retreat!

“Fall Break”

Reviewed 21 Oct 2012

We were on fall break with our son from Clemson and two daughters. The house is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for 4 days of R & R. We ate in each night and enjoyed cooking in the well-stocked kitchen as we listened to music and the crackling fire.

“Great Time”

Reviewed 4 Jan 2012

We had a great time at the Great Escape. I had my two adult children and my grandson. it snowed on the second day we were there and we enjoyed playing in the snow and skiing at Cataloochee. The location was central to all activities so we were able to go to the Biltmore House, Cherokee and Gaitlinburg on day trips. I definitely would stay at the Great Escape again.

Owner's reply: Robin, I am so happy your vacation in our home was all that you expected. Happy New Year!

“Great stay in a wonderful location!”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2011

The house was lovely and well located. All of the directions were clear and the rental staff were very helpful in finding a house that suited our needs. I have a 1 year old and the company even provided an Pack n Play.

Owner's reply: Ellen, I am so pleased that you enjoyed Thanksgiving at our home with your family and that the rental staff was attentive to your needs. I find them to be some of the nicest people to work with. I hope you return and enjoy and mountains and our home in the future. The Bregmans

Beautiful Home, Outstanding view, We'll be back

We celebrated a family Christmas in your beautiful log home. We'll have wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Wonderfully appointed home. We had all the conveniences of home for the two weeks we stayed in your beautiful cabin....with the addition of the spectacular views and sunsets.

We plan to be back for a week every October for the Fall foliage. Your home is beautiful and the setting ideal.

This was the perfect family vacation. The kids loved the playground and park and all the surrounding activities.

Girl's Weekend - what a great place for golf, cards, eating, hiking and reconnecting with friends. We will be back every year for our "girls reunion".

Your beautiful home was perfect for us. We were three couples and each took a floor. Wonderful privacy, exceptional views, total RELAXATION.
Thanks for your hospitality.

"This place is absolutely wonderful!!!! The location is perfect. The Log Home is spacious and well furnished. It has all of the comforts from home. My wife and I enjoyed the fire pit and the rockers (weather was beautiful) on the deck. We couldn't have asked for better accomodations!!! We look forward to our next visit!!! "

"My wife and I live in Washington, N.C... Our two children and their families live in Atlanta. Soaring Eagle Retreat was the perfect place for us to meet and enjoy a family week together for Thanksgiving. The house is located with a spectacular view both high and low. The three level arrangement is perfect to accommodate the needs of multiple family units and especially young children still requiring nap time (grandfathers too!). Soaring Eagle Retreat is beautifully and tastefully decorated with every imaginable need to accommodate gourmet cooking, watching your favorite movie or TV programming, or reading and relaxing on one of the beautiful porches. Nothing has been overlooked. It was truly a wonderful and enjoyable experience that we definitely plan to repeat."

WE LOVED YOUR PROPERTY in Maggie Valley. It is absolutely gorgeous. You are very lucky to have that and have decorated it beautifully. It wasn't like a rental at all...it was like being home. Everything is in perfect shape; the leaves were just coloring; and the golf was amazing at the Cherokee reservation. Thank you for opening your home. It was a great way to spend my 60th birthday!!

We had a wonderful like to Max Patch Bald. We enjoy spending time in your home each year and will be back next year in October. The Downs, Goodrichs, and Jones from GA,VA and AL

What a wonderful home to welcome a new decade. It is so beautiful here! The Baarbs, Louisville, KY

Your home was perfect....we could not ask for more! Thank you for a wonderful vacation. The Parkers

The cabin was beautiful and very accommodating. The views were absolutely amazing & breathtaking! We want to come back to enjoy warmer weather and the wonderful outside living areas and firepit! If it had a hot tub, we could have enjoyed the view even more during the cold weather! :)
Everything awesome, just little things like kitchen needed some smaller glasses for kids. All glasses were big & heavy & for little ones, just needed smaller ones too. No big deal, just a suggestion. We loved the cabin & the area and Cataloochee Ski!

The Throckmortons

Very comfortable home with all you could ask for. Enjoyed rocking on the porch admiring the beautiful fall leaves. Love the nearby town of Waynesville. This is second time dealing with this company. Always very pleasant and helpful.

The Olivera Family, Miami, FL

It was a great place to spend Christmas. The fire was great for winter nights. The view was amazing and we took tons of pictures. Made S'mores in the fire pit. Will definitely come back.

Wonderful place to stay..you have a beautiful home and it lacked for nothing.

The Johnsons and Matthews, Garner and Angier, NC

We thoroughly enjoyed your beautiful home. The rhodadendrons (sp) on your property are a profusion of pink and the wild azaleas and mountain laurel enhanced the beauty of your views. We hope to return every Spring.

The Roberts, Atlanta, GA.

This log home was not only exactly as described, but we found it to have exceeded our expectations. The amenities of the home, the views of the Smoky Mountains and Maggie Valley, and the streams and waterfalls of the gated Smoky Mountain Retreat were very special and much appreciated. The communication with the Owner and the Management Company was excellent and we would highly recommend this experience to others. Our family had a great Spring Break trip and we hope to have another opportunity to return to Soaring Eagle and Maggie Valley! Thank you Kim for sharing your home with us!

The Witcheff's

Our family has a wonderful time. Thank you for making your beautiful home available to us.
