Andrews estate description

Hawkesdene is a Private Mountain Estate located in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Nestled in a private cove on 33 acres, the entire estate is available for your destination wedding, family reunion or special group retreat.

The Main House is a 10,000 square foot seven bedroom, seven and a half bathroom three level home with terraces, balconies and a massive open air pavilion attached to the house. In addition, there are seven private guest houses that include a living room with fireplace, cable TV and DVD player, central heat and air, washer & dryer, inside and outside dining areas, screened porch, and a fully equipped kitchen.

With the Main House and seven guest houses, the estate has a total of 23 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 68 guests in elegant accommodations; and dining is available for up to 125 event guests. Luxury 'Hotel Quality' appointments & amenities, beautiful landscaping, lush gardens & orchards, and impeccably manicured grounds ensure a comfortable and memory-making experience.

Without leaving the estate, you can hike from your door to a hidden waterfall or sit at our massive stone fire pit or walk the trails along Phillips Creek that meanders through the property. And just minutes away you can enjoy mountain biking, zip lining, golf, fly fishing, horseback riding, scenic drives, shopping and white water rafting adventures on the nearby Ocoee or Nantahala rivers.
