Description

Welcome to Westglow at the Boulder Park in Eagles Nest - an adventure glamping experience!

What is a Boulder Pod? Situated on over 20 acres of Blue Ridge wilderness, Westglow is a fully enclosed, one room cedar cabin that is nestled into a rock outcropping of an ancient mountain top with panoramic views of the surrounding mountains. Intended as an adventure glamping experience, it is ideal for an overnight escape, a weekend excursion or a week long retreat. We think you will find Westglow along with all that Eagles Nest has to offer is the perfect place to experience glamping at its best in the North Carolina Mountains.

Where is Hidden-Nite and how do I get to it? Hidden-Nite is located about 1.5 miles inside the Eagles Nest development and is accessed by an approximately 100 yard long moderately steep hiking trail. There are over 80 steps from the parking area up to the pods, mostly natural stone steps in the mountainside.

What's Included: King size bed (with sheets, pillows and blankets) Towels Flat Screen TV Electric Heater Mini-Fridge Coffee Pot Microwave (there is no cook top or oven) Community bathhouse (3 private facilities each with a shower, vanity, and toilet)

What Should I Bring? Backpack / Day Pack (due to the hiking trail access, suitcases are not recommended) Clothing suitable for a mountain top glamping adventure during the season you are visiting Rain gear (we hope the sun shines for your entire stay!) Hiking boots / trail friendly shoes Hiking staff / trekking poles (optional but can be helpful for some) Flash lights / head lamp for each person Toiletries Charcoal / Charcoal lighter (park style grills are available) Matches / Lighter (for grills and fire pits)

"This was a perfect long weekend getaway for my wife and I. The "yurt" was clean, cosy, and dry. Yes, there are stone steps to navigate to get to the yurt and you need to travel down a path to get to the bathroom, but really, that's part of the charm! It rained the first night we were there and a thunderstorm came over the mountain the last night we were there - but I slept like a baby - unlike if I was in a tent! I love the fact there is coffee and a small fridge in the yurt, but i did miss a small picnic table outside the yurt for a camp stove so we could cook some small meals. We basically cooked on a rock so all was well. The views were spectacular the the food and festivals in Banner Elk were delightful. In a nutshell, we enjoyed our trip and we will be back."

"The slight hike to and fro was like they said an adventure, and an experience. Just being in that area, and experiencing Gods nature and such beautiful homes and property, and an addition the Great Camp area of amenities. And a Winery! All only minutes from town. Hangs a down a yearly tradition is started!"

"The heater wasn’t working when we arrived and it got very cold that night. We called the next day and they were able to quickly get us a space heater, which did help a little bit. It took a while to get someone on the phone even though it was during their listed business hours, but once we did the need was quickly addressed."

"It was a great weekend. Gorgeous setting, secluded, and refreshing for our souls. There are 2 things you should absolutely be aware of before booking. 1- The bathroom is not as close as it looks in the picture. It is actually a little bit of a rocky walk. NOT A BIG DEAL UNLESS YOU HAVE TO GO AT NIGHT. Bring a good flashlight with you. Bathrooms are very nice. 2- I did not expect an UPHILL, rocky climb to get to our yurt. There were a few tricky spots. Not too bad but it’s not the easiest to carry stuff up there. Keep in mind I’m 50 and active. We will definitely stay here again. I wouldn’t suggest small kids or small dogs go. Great experience overall."

"We had a wonderful weekend trip! Each yurt has its own bathroom that you access with your own code, which was very convenient. The bathrooms were very clean as well. We loved the views, and it was relatively easy to get to the property by following the directions that were sent to us via email. It was not a long walk to get from the parking area to the yurt. Do be aware that the paths leading to the yurts/bathrooms are made up of rock stairs. (This is the reason they ask you to pack lightly. Example: Backpacks vs roller bags). We did not have any issues. Be cautious when bringing a pet, such as a dog, since there are drop-offs around the yurts. A friendly suggestion for the cleaning crew is to check for large spider webs on the ceilings and to dust the ceilings fans. We did have to bring our own coffee cups, but the coffee maker worked perfectly fine. It's a quick 10-minute drive to the small town, which is lovely. Overall, it was a really great stay! We will be coming back again."

"IT WAS AMAZING! We planned a last minute short get away Anniversary and Birthday weekend and really had no idea what we were getting into but have raved about our weekend to everyone since we got back. The drive to Banner Elk was nothing compared to the drive to our pod once we entered the grounds. The landscaping and flowers were beyond words. Nature was all around every curve. The views were breathtaking. It was all so beautiful. We met the nicest couples! I think that is also what made this weekend most memorable. We arrived on a Thursday about 4pm and were happily surprised with the 'Boulders'. We knew they said a short climb, hubby said to pack lightly... but really had not anticipated how amazing our weekend would end up! We were in the WestGlow and absolutely loved it! Figuring out that the steps were made of specifically placed stones that lead to each pod with the pods seen and not seen at the same time. Tree lights hanging along the walkways that kept it well lit at night so you can see where to walk. Yes, they do shut off, but I assure you we were in bed tired from hikes before that happened. Again, our neighbors could not have been more fun. We have made lifelong friends in three days. Building campfires, making smores and laughing with and at each other and ourselves for hours. Funny thing, you learn to time potty visits... and make sure you know which pee pod door is yours and the code! wink-wink - LOL... We did have nature at our door and around us all the times. Chipmunks, Doe's with babies and even an apparent visit by a bear! We had chili nights and the weather was rainy, but for our purposes perfect sleeping weather! Mostly cleared up by the time we were up and moving around for the day. A chance to curl up and relax and listen to nature and enjoy the view from our bed. We even found time to actually read the notebook and found several things to do that we actually did! Took advise on where to eat and then in sharing with the neighbors the discount for extra nights, both of the couples in fact, took advantage of the extra nights at discount prices! (wish we'd have known ahead of time, we would have planned a little differently ourselves).... We all planned our Saturday night around the party at the top of the mountain. They had something for everyone. Real family time to bond and the band was great; food trucks were very tasty. The pizza - well nothing better than homemade pizza cooked right in front of you!... Ummm... so very good. Not to mention the bartender.... did it up right!... So it was a great last night good ending to our weekend get away. I think overall, we were very lucky to have this experience and when word gets out, it will become more and more difficult to book this excursion on short notice like we were able to do. Obviously, this has our highest recommendation! I did have a couple of other comments. For me, personally, there needs to be more hanging options in both the pod and and in the bathroom. A chair in the bathroom would also be helpful. That shower was amazing but no where to really hang my clothes and towels that was close enough to the shower. The perfect place for a command hook!... But have to say, these were very clean and tidy. Thank you! Another reason I mention hanging options, is that it rained daily while there and having only one very small hook in our pod was just not enough for the coats and towels that we used. Would I go again?... in... a... heartbeat!... YES! No doubt about it. Would even touch base with the couples to see if we could meet up!"

"We've stayed in the Boulder Pods at Lodges at Eagles Nest several times. We like glam ping and this experience is superb. The location is second to none! We love sitting around the fire pit drinking wine and grilling while watching the sunset. Great facilities with Breathtaking views rain or shine. Just be prepared to traverse the steep rock path to your pod. Wear sturdy shoes and pack light."
