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.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to add my voice of appreciation to the note Julie sent earlier. Thank you for sharing your fabulous house and bearing with us in our many date changes. Loved the view and got up each morning about 6 just to see the hills and clouds. Also enjoyed your selection of DVD. I especially liked the domino collection, the product canisters over the kitchen sink, Mr Swank and Go Go Go Girl and the Born Under A Bad Albert King 45 light. Whimsy and details...superb. The carefully placed directions / labels were great and the white folder compendium of local info above the microwave too. In short, loved it and we look forward to a return. Many Many thanks

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was probably one of the best places we have rented. We have been to the mountains a lot and this by far was the nicest place and best view! The owner was very easy to work with and on top of things. The property was very well maintained and fully stocked with a gorgeous view.

We highly recommend this cabin!

Paradise on the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

This was our third or fourth visit to Hawk's View House. We love the location, the view, and the cabin. Everything we could desire for our stay is provided--full kitchen, comfortable and entertaining living areas, and a great porch with hummingbirds and rocking chairs. The owner is accessible and helpful. The property is clean and inviting from the first view from the entry drive to the last regretful glimpse in the rearview mirror. I recommend this property to everyone.

A fantastic place to stay. Great Views and house

  • 5 of 5

Hawks View is a fabulous place to spend a few days, a week or a month in the beautiful NC Mountains. The house is excellent and is equipped with everything you could possibly want or need. The view is breath taking. And you are close to ever thing. We have been renting the house for about 10 years and never once have been disappointed"

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Our 5-night stay at Hawk's View far exceeded our expectations. Photographs cannot do justice to the dramatic beauty of the inspiring views from the large porch of this special home. Inside, the thoughtful owners have designed, decorated, and outfitted the perfect vacation retreat. We loved it so much that, before we left, we reserved a week at Hawk's View for next July! A couple of tips on the area: We love to hike and found the Roan Mountain Hike one of the prettiest we have ever done. Also, for an absolutely delicious upscale dinner, don't miss Knife and Fork in Spruce Pine. Reservations are strongly encouraged.

Sensational cabin

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is awesome well equipped with every thing we needed and more. Creatively decorated with surprises every day that we didn't notice the day before. We enjoyed starting our day drinking our coffee while sitting on the porch watching the fog starting out low in the valleys and rising up over the mountains. In the evening we could grill some burgers and watch the sun set over the mountains. We loved it. If we're ever in this area again we'll be back.

Spectaculars vistas and peaceful ambience

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival at Hawks view cabin, we relaxed instantly! We opened the doors to the wrap around porch, tried to read , but the views took first place, all week. The owner has taken great care to see to all needs, fluffy towels, very comfortable sheets and beds, a simple but perfect kitchen set up, fans and super clean. She checked in with us via email to see if directions ( simple and exact), were clear and if we had settled in. The unique architectural style of the cabin, grounds and original art throughout the house made the setting perfect. I found myself smiling no matter what room I was in! After exploring nearby areas and an occasional breakfast out, we always looked forward to our return to the cabin Rain and cool weather prompted a small fire in the wood stove, so nice! Wildlife unique to this area made an appearance our last day there which made our stay even more magical! Both my husband and I highly recommend Hawk View House, we will be back!
