Hawks View is conveniently located off Hwy 226 between Spruce Pine (Voted one of the "Top 25 Coolest Mountain Small Towns by Romantic Asheville!) and Bakersville, only a few miles from Penland School of Crafts and Mile Marker 331 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Our luxury cabin is located in the heart of the Pisgah National Forest within 15 minutes of all your favorite mountain activities; gem mines, Grassy Creek and Crabtree waterfalls, downtown little Switzerland, the Orchard at Altapass, horse back riding, golfing, swimming, tubing and kayaking on the South Toe River, Dellinger Grist Mill and visiting dozens of artist studios and craft galleries surrounding the renowned Penland School of Crafts. Linville Falls, Grandfather Mountain and the Appalachian Trail at Roan Mountain are all just 30 minutes away. Asheville, Johnson City TN and the High Country ski areas are within 1 hour drive.

One of the highlights of Hawks View is the breathtaking long range views of the Black Mountain range. During the summer months you can see Mount Celo, Mount Mitchell and the Unicoi mountain range. In the winter when the leaves drop, the view opens to a full 180 degrees from Mt. Mitchell to Roan Mountain. Enjoy your coffee in the morning overlooking the fog blanketed valley below, and your wine in the evenings watching spectacular mountain sunsets or cozy up to the wood stove with a good book and enjoy the sounds of rain on the tin roof. A ''Mountain Paradise in the Clouds', Hawks View is truly breathtaking and certainly one of the reasons that renters will return year after year to this unique mountain rental.

Hawks View offers true mountain privacy. Situated on a secluded, 4 acre tract of land with no adjacent homes and easy access off a paved road. Designed and built by an award winning architect and resident artist from Penland School, the house is a blend of both modern and traditional cabin style architecture with an artistic touch throughout. Handmade ceramic sinks by local artists and other unique elements of creativity are unexpected treats.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to add my voice of appreciation to the note Julie sent earlier. Thank you for sharing your fabulous house and bearing with us in our many date changes. Loved the view and got up each morning about 6 just to see the hills and clouds. Also enjoyed your selection of DVD. I especially liked the domino collection, the product canisters over the kitchen sink, Mr Swank and Go Go Go Girl and the Born Under A Bad Albert King 45 light. Whimsy and details...superb. The carefully placed directions / labels were great and the white folder compendium of local info above the microwave too. In short, loved it and we look forward to a return. Many Many thanks

Gorgeous house; stunning views; privacy; quiet

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Hawk's View House. It was everything advertised and more. So well appointed, we hardly left the place in six days except to check out some spots in Spruce Pine and hit the Ingles market there. The view from the house is breathtaking: the Black Mountains -- the highest range in the East, including Mount Mitchell, Celo Knob and other 6K' peaks -- and all the lesser mountains & surrounding hills. In addition, there are no houses or cabins close by to mar the solitude or the view. The only distractions were Red-tailed hawks sounding off while drifting by at eye level, wild turkeys scuffling in the woods below the driveway, and, oh, the hummingbirds! Priceless!!

Beautifully designed cabin with wraparound porch and incomparable mountain views. A gorgeous sunset every night and lots of birdlife right at our doorstep. Well equipped and comfortable. The owner was very accommodating and helpful.

Truly Magical!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Hawk's View. We are a family of 4 with two children age 7 & 10. We loved every moment at Hawk's View and cannot wait to return. The views are simply incredible. Everything about this home has been so well thought out ---from the decor to the architecture. We spent hours on the porch watching the changing views and the hummingbirds. The beds, pillows and linens are extremely comfortable. Cynthia has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. She was always a pleasure to deal with and if we had a question she was quick to respond and very helpful. We appreciated her notes around the home.

I especially loved her wildflowers and she is so thoughtful to have the instructions placed in her home on how to recreate for yourself.

We enjoyed:

Doc's Rocks - Boone

Mt Mitchell

Apple Orchard

Hiking to Crabtree Falls

Brevard - Sliding Rock and Looking Glass Falls

A previous guest wrote in the guest book located at Hawk's View to:

Wake 45 minutes before the sunrise, make a cup of coffee and get comfortable on the porch. BEST ADVICE EVER!

My kids enjoyed the games that are provided and we brought some of our own. I left my phone charger and she immediately mailed to me without having to even ask! We loved every moment except when we had to leave.

Thank you for sharing your amazing home.

We saw the hawks!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to Hawk's View, and we enjoyed it even more this time. The decor is quirky and comfortable. Everything necessary and then some is furnished. The view is fantastic--above the clouds in the heart of the Smokies. We enjoyed feeding the hummingbirds and just sitting on the porch, gazing out on the scenery. The only thing I didn't get to was a nap in the hammock--my loss. Owners are very responsive to any questions. Really, you can't go wrong.

Elegantly rustic getaway

  • 5 of 5

The architectural elements and local art made this cabin a notch above the generic log cabin "kit" decorated in bear carvings, moose antlers and stick furniture rental cabins so common in the mountains. Great view to boot! Quiet, very private and very comfortable! Owners great and easy to work with.
