Hawk and Ivy is simply the perfect place to "get away from it all." It's been 10 days since my wife and I were there and we are both still feeling the relaxing and restorative effects of our visit. We stayed in the downstairs of the cottage which was immediately cozy. With it being summer we didn't stay indoors for... More

Superb house, cottage and gardens. The "barn" is the perfect setting for a rustic wedding or event. It's a bit of a haul up to the meadow for weddings, but well worth a few stops along the way to catch your breath and be inspired by the natural beauty you'll only find this deep in the blue ridge mountains. I... More

We cannot rave enough about the beautiful setting, the accommodations, and the great breakfasts at Hawk and Ivy!! James and Eve have created the most lovely Bed & Breakfast I have ever experienced! The gardens are full of old treasured plantings where fruits and flowers abound. These fruits and flowers find their way into the amazing breakfasts that greet you... More

We have never stayed anywhere where we felt more at home than at the Hawk & Ivy. The fanciest hotel couldn't have been more accommodating. The accommodations were extremely comfortable, the breakfasts totally amazing and unlike anything we have ever eaten, all organic and very flavorful. The grounds were so beautiful and peaceful and the people who run it were... More

The Hawk&Ivy is situated in a stunning valley. Surrounding the B&B, breathtaking gardens evoke a botanical wonderland. A short stroll from the B&B, a beautiful barn overlooks rolling hills and a mountain vista. The food was delicious and served in the cozy company of other guests and the gracious hosts. I can't wait to go back to take in the... More

My husband and I set out to find a nice place to stay in the Asheville area just to beat the heat of Columbia, S.C. Oh, did we find that and so much more! We found our happy place at Hawk and Ivy! Our new friends Eve, James and tour guide Garreth, the corgi, instantly became our old friends. It... More

The Hawk and Ivy is a healing experience. Eve and James are generous, gracious, tender, competent, fascinating! Breakfast came in several courses, much of it taken from their vast garden. Our accomodations were spacious and comfortable. We had everything we needed. We will definitely stay again, and, in fact, would travel back just to stay there. Wonderful!

I characterize comfort food as that which is delicious, unpretentious, and and makes me feel good and that is how I would describe both the accommodations and the owners/hosts of The Hawk & Ivy. Our room (second floor cottage) was not grand or sumptuous, but instead just plain comfortable. Eve and James have equipped the quarters with everything you need... More

My friends and I decided to go zip lining at Navitat in Asheville and they recommended Hawk & Ivy. James and Eve made us feel like family...they prepared a gourmet breakfast each morning and we sat with the other guests like family. Even Eve and James joined us!! It was so very special. The rooms were absolutely delightful. Each morning,... More

My wife and I stayed at Hawk and Ivy on a recent trip to the Asheville area. At first we were a little concerned by how far from downtown Asheville it is (about a 15-20 minute drive), but once we arrived, we were charmed. Gareth, the owners' dog, greeted us and also served as our guide to Eve's lovely hillside... More
