Eagle's Nest Lodge


Eagles Nest Lodge

Sorry! We are currently not leasing the Lodge rooms until April 15, 2021.  Just taking a short break Wink

This is the entrance to Eagles Nest Lodge off Muske Ullrich Rd.  When coming to the Lodge, you may park under the carport to unload your luggage.  Parking is in front of the Lodge.  The doors to the right are where the Trails West office is located.  The Lodge is a great place for a small corporate retreat and/or meeting place.  Catered meals/simple breakfasts arranged at request.

Sorry, no pets are allowed at the Lodge.  No children under age 12.

We provide a continental style buffet breakfast which includes pastries, fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, tea, bottled water & soft drinks.  Each day we like to vary the menu with occassional breakfast casseroles, biscuits & gravy + sausage patties, scrambled eggs etc.




The front of Eagle's Nest Lodge is approached from Mayer Cemetery Rd.  The Lodge is located at 10770 Mayer Cemetery Rd north of and across the creek from the cabin area.  The front veranda is 40 feet across with lots of seating to enjoy your morning coffee.  





On December 27, 2008 our three children Rebecca, Scott & Jeff celebrated Christmas with us and enjoyed the first fire in our new fireplace at Eagle's Nest Lodge. 


Great room / bar area.  Guests are allowed to keep drinks in the bar refrigerator and we have additional space in another refrigerator.  We do encourage guests to bring their own ice chest and keep it in the carport area.

A few words about our Lodge.   Sorry no pets or children under the age of 12 are allowed at the Lodge.  Children are allowed in the cabins or hangar only. There is NO SMOKING inside the lodge.  

  We really want you to feel at home here.  Our continental style breakfast is served between 8:00-9:00 AM.  It is very informal, so pjs & robe is fine.  You may bring an ice chest and leave it under our covered carport area.  You may use the outdoor grill.  You may also leave drinks in our bar refrigerator.  Please feel free to lounge on our front porch or play the piano in our music room.   We have lots of books if you wish to read or watch TV in the downstairs den.

Please note that our office is at the Lodge, however, often we are across the creek at the cabins.  If we are not at the Lodge upon your arrival, please check to see if we might be on the other side.  Please notify us of the expected time of your arrival, preferably 24 hours in advance of your reservations.  We prefer that you check in before dark.  During Antique Festivals, things often get hectic with the arrival of many guests at the same time, so we apologize in advance if we are not immediately available.  Please make yourself at home downstairs in the den, and we will be there directly.

Call us today for reservations!
