Hawks View is conveniently located off Hwy 226 between Spruce Pine (Voted one of the "Top 25 Coolest Mountain Small Towns by Romantic Asheville!) 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 queen 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 + Netflix, sound bar, Blu-ray player, plus DVD collection, stereo system, fully equipped kitchen with convection oven, microwave, dishwasher, many small appliances (coffee grinder, rice cooker, blender, crock pot), stainless steel gas BBQ grill, hammock, washer and dryer, detergents and soaps and wood for the wood stove are all supplied.

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

A Place Of Renewal & Restoration For Your Soul

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Cynthia's cabin after a long and trying drive. Surrounded by a winter wonderland, her house welcomed us as a safe haven and place of rest. I remember a sense of "home" when walking through the front door; the design, decor, and cleanliness of the cabin stirred a sense of wonder and joy in me. The wood stove (which, was super easy to get going) put off an ambiance of peace.

We awoke to breath-taking views of the valley and Mount Mitchell. It's been stated in other reviews, but pictures cannot capture the glory and grandeur of the expansive views. I felt a deep-seated delight and awe that I've not experienced in some time, as I peered over the sights in front of me.

Cynthia's neighbors are extremely respectful and kind human beings. Per our choice (and their willingness) we interacted with them a number of times. They always respected our space, privacy, and communicated only when we wanted to - that said, both my wife and I felt entirely safe on the mountain.

We're talking of returning to the cabin this summer. I highly recommend visiting this place - I believe you will find a deep pleasure and rest for your soul.

Thank you Cynthia - we'll be back.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Hawks View is the perfect getaway. Incredible view from the porch, the house is amazingly clean and stylish, and the overall vibe it gives you makes you never want to leave. This was our third year coming the Hawks View and we used the opportunity to get engaged! That's how special this place is to us. We will come back year after year no doubt.
