A short drive down a well maintained gravel road brings you to the parking area of this mountain cabin that sits above Fontana Lake. This cabin has three levels and two decks. A walk around the front yard brings you to the entrance, a few steps and Eagles View welcomes you inside. The yard has a privacy fence to add a bit of seclusion from the nearby cabins, and a fire-pit to keep you toasty on those cool evenings while roasting marshmallows and making s'mores. From the side of the yard you can access the deck by a few steps up and walk around the cabin to see a partial view of the lake below. Several chairs give you a place to sit and enjoy the quietness the area has to bring. A gas grill is located on the right side of the deck, perfect for cooking outdoors in the refreshing mountain air. The bottom deck is accessed from the parking area or from the downstairs den, it is covered and gives you a cool shady area to relax. Here you will find more seating and a hot tub for a warm massaging soak.
