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.

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.

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

Sensational cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome well equipped with every thing we needed and more. Creatively decorated with surprises every day that we didn't notice the day before. We enjoyed starting our day drinking our coffee while sitting on the porch watching the fog starting out low in the valleys and rising up over the mountains. In the evening we could grill some burgers and watch the sun set over the mountains. We loved it. If we're ever in this area again we'll be back.

Stunning mountain paradise

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this cabin the moment we arrived. So well equipped and great styling but the views will blow you away. The changing vista is mesmerising and the humming birds put on a show each evening . We would not hesitate to return if in the area. Fabulous.

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a true get-away, consider Hawks View. We were literally "above the fray" and we're able to relax and recharge.

The cabin is very comfortable and we'll appointed.

Thank you!

Enchanting mountain home

  • 5 of 5

From the time we arrived to the drive away 2 days later we were totally relaxed. The owners had done everything possible to insure that we were comfortable. The helpful notes liberally spread around the premises made navigation in a strange house very easy. The accommodations were extremely comfortable

and well thought out. This place warrants a return trip soon.
