We met at Eagles Ridge for a family reunion. Our group had two cabins 849 and 821. The cabins are in the north section which is newer and is located about 1 1/2 miles west of the Parkway. We stayed in cabin 849 which has 4 bedrooms (3 queens, 1 king), 3 1/2 baths, a loft , and a sitting room.
MAIN LEVEL: consists of a great room, dining area, kitchen with bar counter, king bedroom and a full bath. The full bath has a door to the kitchen area and king bedroom. This bedroom is quite roomy. In the great room there is a sofa, love seat and chair, TV, fireplace, and lots of windows to see the views of the Smokies in the distance.
LOFT: The stairs to the loft are off the great room. the loft has a pool table, pull out sofa, chair, and 1/2 bath.
LOWER LEVEL: When entering the lower level you first come to the sitting area that has a pull out sofa, chair and small TV. Off the sitting area is three bedrooms with queen beds and closet with a washer/dryer unit. The first queen bedroom you come to has a TV and a shared bathroom with a shower. The second queen bedroom shares a bath with the first bedroom, has a deep garden tub in the room and has access to the deck with the hot tub. The third queen bedroom has it's own private bath with a shower unit and access to the deck with the hot tub.
In this cabin we had six adults and six children and were very comfortable. The furnishings were very nice and comfortable and the kitchen with dishwasher was well equipped.
The downfalls of the cabin were that the bathroom on the main level smelled like someone was smoking in there. The cabin didn't seem to be insulated from the inside or out, so every noise could be heard. We didn't encounter any insects, but there was a large gap in the corner of the bathroom on the main level where the sun came shining through, which could be a definite entrance for insects (hopefully they fix this). We only had two rocking chairs on the deck where other cabins had quite a few of them. Our dining table was missing a couple chairs from around it. The deck with the hot tub could only be accessed by going through one of two bedrooms on the lower level. Our porch was not screened in.
