The grounds of Hawk Valley were incredibly beautiful, accessible, and exactly what I was looking for. There's a porch swing where you can grab a cup of complimentary tea/coffee/hot chocolate & swing while the sun sets over the hills & fields; there's also a swing down by their bass filled pond that's just the perfect place to hang in the...

We stayed at Hawk Valley before so we knew this was the place to be married! The grounds are beautiful, cabins homey and inviting, and personalized attention are all reasons we chose the elopement package! Hal and Wendy took care of all the details for a reasonable price. We showed up and had stress-free wedding in beautifully decorated barn. From... More

Hawk Valley is a wonderful place to spend a romantic weekend getaway! We stay in the private cottages when we visit, which have great amenities such as a fireplace, king size bed, jacuzzi tub, as well as a flat screen TV with DVD player! The rooms are always clean, they leave you cookies each day, and the breakfast is always... More

Wendy & Hal made us feel very welcome. We stayed in the Pines Cottage. Our massage and private dinner were amazing. We were close to all the things going on in town, but also secluded at the same time. My husband and I can't wait to go back.

Wendy & Hal are wonderful hosts. The cottage we stayed in was spacious, clean & private. The arrangements our hosts made for our elopement were perfect. Hal's breakfasts are phenomenal. We will be back.

Wendy and Hal were wonderful! We stayed in one of the cottages and loved having the space and privacy. It was the perfect anniversary escape from Chicago. Breakfast was filling and delicious. Would really love to go back in the warm weather, but for March weather, everything was just perfect.

This was our first experience at a B&B. I will definitely be going back to Hawk Valley, hopefully this fall when the leaves change colors! Hal greeted us, told us to make ourselves comfortable as this was our home too while visiting. Wendy & Hal each have their "specialty" areas, his cooking/greeting guests, hers grounds-keeping & housecleaning. We stayed in... More
