Fantastic Vacation Home

Our families from Florida, Virginia and California gathered to celebrate a week of summer in this outstanding mountain chalet.
A perfect place for lots of people to spread out and enjoy the numerous home amenities: a great working kitchen; fabulous hot tub; pool table & air hockey table; and lots of space to work puzzles and play games. The bedrooms had very comfortable beds, and each room was delightfully decorated. And who doesn't love a home with 5.5 bathrooms?!!
The incredible views on the wrap-around decks gave us spectacular sunsets and amazing star gazing opportunities (accompained by the nightly wild-life chorus). We photographed rainbows after a rain shower, hummingbirds, and the amazing blue-ridge mountains that changed colors throughout each 24 hour period.
Hawks Haven is set in paradise, seemingly secluded (friendly neighbors on the mountain top), yet within easy travel distance to other activities. We fished on the French/Broad River around Ashville; saw a great Broadway production of Hairspray at the Flatrock Theatre, close to Hendersonville; and had such fun on our last evening when we ate out at the Tractor Shed in Hendersonville, which features local farmers/produce on their menus.
The owners Joe & Ann were great, as was the caretaker who assisted us with a water issue and the cleaning company that prepared the home with fresh linens & towels. Everyone was interested in ensuring our vacation was perfect.
We highly recommend this vacation home for large family gatherings. Any time of the year would be the perfect time! The beautiful fireplaces have us dreaming of a Thanksgiving or Christmas rendezvous...
Thank-you Joe and Ann for sharing your home with us - it was a perfect vacation, we are appreciative, and will dream of returning!
