As you can see from the beautiful photos, this cabin has breathtaking views. We spent most of our time at the cabin sitting on the main level wrap around deck just taking in the amazing scenery. Also enjoyed watching the sun set from the upper deck off of the upstairs bedroom. In addition to the mountain views, we also saw a bunch of wildlife...lots of different birds, wild turkeys, and two deer.
The cabin itself is wonderful as well. The thing that was different about this cabin from other cabins that we have rented was that this cabin just felt very homey. There was nothing that we needed that was not included...super soft sheets, plush towels, a fully stocked kitchen, extra pillows and blankets. The owners didn't forget anything when stocking their cabin!
Finally I really appreciated that the owner checked in with us via e-mail right around check in time to make sure everything was okay with the cabin. I have NEVER had an owner do that in all of the cabins we have rented! Also the owner responded quickly to my e-mail when I had a question during our stay.
Can't recommend this cabin enough. We will definitely book again!
Unbelievable views!!! Well decorated & appointed, beautiful, unique cabin that was also CLEAN, comfortable & cozy for our family of 4 adults & 2 dogs. I could sit on that porch 24/7. I now wanna MOVE to the NC mountains after our visit! Thank you for sharing your amazing place with us.
My husband, 2 dogs and I had a wonderful stay at Hawks View. Once you make the "adventurous" drive up the mountain, you arrive to a little piece of heaven! The views are spectacular and the cabin is a piece of art. Cynthia was a joy to work with and extremely responsive with any questions I had. She checked in after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed, and when she found out about the rainy weather we had been having, texted me to see if we were OK. My husband and I said that we couldn't have thought of a better place to be when the storms came through. We just sat and looked out the window, drank wine, and watched the rain! It was wonderful!! :)
If you decide to stay here, you will NOT be disappointed. It was one of the best places I've ever stayed and we will definitely be back. Thanks so much, Cynthia!!
We took books but hardly read as we could not stop looking at the view. The home is perfectly equipped, anything you could possible think of is provided. Being able to take our dog made out stay perfect!! We made a quick visit to the Penland School Art Gallery but other than that we stayed put... Why would you want to leave???
This was the first time we stayed in a cabin and it was everything we imagined and more! The cabin had so,much character and captured the true essence of the mountains. It was amazing waking up every morning and looking out of the windows at the view. Every thing in the house was very clean and it had all of the necessities you need and more. We had fun with the cribbage board! We hope to come back in the summer.
Just a peaceful relaxing week was spent at Hawks View Nest. The weather was perfect. Afternoons were spent reading and watching the colors change as the sun began to set in the valley and on the mountains. The hammock came out a few times for a nap in the sun and was great. Overall the house is perfect. Just the right size and everything you need is there. Beds are comfortable and sheets are the best. (not picked). One tv and lots of books is all you need. It is quiet except to listen to the coyotes at night or the owls. The wood stove was perfect to take the chill off at night and easy to use. Can't say enough about how great this place is. Looking forward to a return visit. Owner very easy to work with..

We were greeted by a spectacular view of the mountains and nature surrounding us as far as the eye could see. The peacefulness and relaxation the house provided were so welcoming. The wrap around porch/deck promote the enjoyment of time alone for reflection, quiet conversation with family and friends, and decompression from some of the hustle and bustle of life in the city! The fountain, birdfeeders, flowers and comfortable porch swing, rockers and chairs contributed to this, as well. There were numerous options for exploration of nearby mountains, falls, parks and fun, as well as more upscale, restaurants and bars and other notable tourist attractions. We actually regretted that the weather was so pleasant and fresh that we never took advantage of the fireplace and abundance of cut firewood!
The house was clean and well-stocked with dish, glass and cookware, as well as other conveniences, and there were stores nearby for any food or other supplies that might be needed. We were there with a another couple, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and would recommend it for just about anyone who is seeking a scenic mountain getaway!
