"The Head Rest" overlooking Cheoah Lake is a picture perfect spot no matter your reason of destination.

Mornings offer gorgeous sunrise hues while taking in the surrounding sounds of nature. Evenings host a reflection of eastern sunset glow and rising moon views. Easy proximity to many exciting adventures including rafting, boating, exploring, parkways, nature, and more.
