The Lodges at Eagles Nest

The Lodges at Eagles Nest Banner Elk

Designed and created before the economic downturn, The Lodges at Eagles Nest has evolved into an experiment in luxury living for those who appreciate nature at its finest and know a great deal when they see one. Eagles Nest was designed to feel like a 5-star all-season camp, so its retreats, which formerly ranged in price from $200,000 to well over a $1,000,000, come with a full range of amenities and some of the most spectacular long-range views the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer. Before the property became bank owned, over 60 lots were sold and many homes have been built. Now, Waterfront Group and partners have purchased this property and are renewing, redefining, and restoring the existing amenities and infrastructure while preserving over 200 acres of unspoiled land for the long-term enjoyment of the community.

You have a chance to make the High Country Eagles Nest lifestyle your own, when some of the best properties are released to the public at a fraction of their original asking prices – up to 90% off their original sales price. We will be releasing some of the best properties ever offered at Eagles Nest – fulfilling the master plan of what has been called “Aspen of the East.”

You have a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase acreage within the most spectacular high-elevation luxury community in the Blue Ridge Mountains. With over $70 million spent on infrastructure and amenities, a value like this may never again be available. Breathtaking mountain properties are NOW available at a fraction of the original asking price. In the past 18 months, eager families have claimed more than 200 Eagles Nest home sites for their own. Turnkey home sites can be purchased from the 100′s and turnkey luxury cabins are still available for purchase. Exceptional properties and great deals are still available!
