The Sleepy Bear Lodge at The Lodges at Eagles Nest
Introducing The Sleepy Bear Lodge at The Lodges at Eagles Nest! This home is perched at over 4,500 ft. of elevation and looks out onto rolling mountain views for miles and miles with direct southern exposure. The quintessential mountain lodge in every sense, The Sleepy Bear offers guests just about everything they could want in a luxury mountain experience. From the rusted tin roof, poplar bark siding and stacked stone on the outside, to the rugged timber-framed cathedral ceiling of the Great Room, the home is truly a North Carolina High Country masterpiece. Completed in 2017, the home was designed to offer the perfect balance of authentic Blue Ridge Mountain architecture and rustic elegance, with every modern convenience our discerning guests require.
The Sleepy Bear Lodge features an open gourmet kitchen and unique restaurant-style breakfast booth, with textured black stone and exquisite white marble surfaces, free-flow to the large dining table and expansive great room with stacked stone gas fireplace. The 1st master suite is just steps away and features a king-sized bed with opulent linens, stacked stone gas fireplace and access to the wrap around deck. The master bath offers a refreshing travertine tile and stone shower as well as a soaking tub, with double vanity and white marble surfaces. On the opposite side of the main level, you'll find another full master suite and bath, as well as convenient mudroom and laundry. Step outside to the sprawling deck, with covered outdoor dining, and look out onto picturesque south-facing views to Mount Mitchell.
Follow the unique curved stone wall staircase downstairs to the lower level and you'll find another impressive master suite with king-sized bed, as well as two additional guest bedrooms, one with a queen bed and the other with twin beds, and additional full bath. The lower level also offers full casual den with pool table, game table and full deck. The spacious property is framed by large boulders and a seasonal babbling stream.

We fell in love with Sleepy Bear Lodge! We have stayed at four other rental homes in Eagle’s Nest over the years, but none are as special as Sleepy Bear. The house seemed brand new. Our favorite part was the breathtaking views not only from the deck and living room, but also from the master bedroom, kitchen and nearly every room in the house. It was quiet and private but we were still able to walk to the Saturday night concert at The Great Camp. The beds were amazing and we all had our own private bathrooms for the week. It was comfortable, luxurious and we will definitely be coming back.

Sleepy Bear Lodge is one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. It’s hard to say whether it was more beautiful inside or out. Stunning views of the mountains and a great location close to the Great Camp. I loved cooking in this gorgeous kitchen - with the amazing views on both sides and deer that would wander into the yard. I would definitely recommend it - everything is in great condition - the pool table, the hot tub, the furniture, and it’s very comfortable and clean. You can tell they care about this home.

Thank you Sleepy Bear for a wonderful vacation! We had three generations all together here with plenty of room for privacy and for gathering. We ate out on the deck every chance we got, even when it was raining. Be careful if you stay here, you will never want to leave.
