About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Hunting Hawk Lodge is a custom built structure reminiscent of the homes the settlers built in the Cades Cove area of the Smokey Mountians National Park. The Lodge is all wood, giving comfort and security to all who visit.

There is one private bedroom with a queen bed and a loft with a queen. With a queen futon in the livingroom the Lodge is a cozy cave for six. There is one bath with a clawfoot tub/shower. There is a telephone for local calls, fully equipped kitchen, hot tub, internet, outdoor grill, although rarely necessary, air conditioning units are installed for the warmer months and yes, if you must ... satellite television with dvd player. Our home has all the flavor of a rustic Appalachian shelter with the added creature comforts our ancestors wanted.

Our land boarders Pisgah National Forest and the North Fork of the French Broad River. The North Fork fishing is truly outstanding. Also we have two stocked ponds if you are just too lazy to walk the extra hundred yards to the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful! The mornings were cool in the 70s and every afternoon brought a thunderstorm. We ventured out a little to sliding rock, Looking Glass Falls and the country back roads but we mostly spent time at the cabin exploring this property.We even caught a fish in the pond! Every morning we enjoyed coffee on the porch in rocking chairs and our evenings in the hot tub. Its so nice to get away from reality for a while. We cooked every meal here. The kitchen is very well stocked. Thanks Brent. This has been such a wonderful experience for Mafus and I, so much that we are considering canceling our honeymoon in Jamaica and coming here instead! Thanks again.

My son will be joining the Army April 11, he and I wanted to take one last fishing and hiking trip to somewhere we have never been. The search to find a suitable cabin for our venture was exhaustive and difficult (wanted it to be a great experience for the both of us). I can honestly say this was the perfect cabin for our vacation. Brent has every detail mastered from the hot tub, the fire pit, the fully stocked kitchen to provide a 'true' log cabin experience. We live in Charleston, SC and couldn't think of a better way to spend the week than hiking the mountains and fishing the rivers (and ponds). Thanks for your hospitality Brent...we will definately be back!!

perfect little getaway

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was perfect for my husband and I and our 2 dogs. We enjoyed every minute. The owner was quick to answer any questions prior to our arrival and we got the chance to meet him when he dropped off some firewood. Looking forward to returning.

Nice quaint cabin in a peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 children) enjoyed the relaxing setting in the woods for the weekend. It has just the right amount of space for each of us to curl up with a good book or gather around the table for a game. We're looking forward to staying here again!

Relaxing and peaceful.

  • 4 of 5

PROS- We went there for our family vacation with our 2 boys and one of their friends. We wanted to stay in this area to hike waterfalls, etc. The lodge had beautiful craftsmanship. We sat on the front porch alot and it was very peaceful. We also sat at the table alot spending quality time with our boys playing Uno and Monopoly.

Brent/owner was always helpful when we had questions/concerns. He would call and would jump in on any requests or concerns we had.

It was a great place to stay and we enjoyed our peaceful vacation at Brent's lodge.

CONS- We had some issues with fruit flies in the kitchen. We made sure to wrap everything well. Also the kitchen sink had low water pressure- but we made due.

Mid-week Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My partner and I decided to take a mid-week trip to stay at Hunting Hawk Lodge. We had a great time. Very cozy, close enough to town for anything needed, and secluded enough to enjoy the quiet surroundings. Would definitely stay here again!

Pisgah Astronomical Research Institute (PARI) is less than five miles from the Lodge. It is worth the trip simply to visit this facility. Formally the Rosman Satellite Tracking Station, PARI is a not-for -profit foundation which boasts the best radio and optical telescopes east of the Mississippi open to the public. This is the best kept secret in WNC. (
