Our main website has 100 + pictures, area information and 100% 5 STAR Reviews

Hawks View is conveniently located off Hwy 226 between Spruce Pine 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.

This home features 1400 SF of living space with 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, loft, balcony plus 700 sq ft of covered porches with hemlock log columns and handcrafted stonework. Pine hardwood floors and ceilings thru out with vaulted ceilings in the living room and loft areas. The master bedroom upstairs has a queen bed, private bathroom and its own private deck. Also upstairs is the loft with a pullout futon and game table with games, puzzles and books supplied for guest use. The main floor has the guest bedroom with full bed, desk and bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen and dining area adjacent to the living room with TV and cozy wood stove. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains from both bedrooms and all living areas.

Unlike a lot of rental properties, Hawks View is fully furnished and fully equipped, as a turn-key second home for its owners. Expect all the comforts of home; 46' Flatscreen TV with DISH 240 channels, plus DVD collection, stereo system, fully equipped kitchen with convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, many small appliances (coffee grinder, rice cooker, blender, crock pot), gas BBQ grill, hammock, washer and dryer, detergents and soaps and wood for the wood stove are all supplied. Just show up with food and your clothes for a wonderful romantic weekend, family getaway or holiday with friends.

Come enjoy the serenity of Hawks View House, a Blue Ridge Mountain Rental that will have you feeling right at home, in addition to its incredible mountain views and amenities!
