Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Hawkesdene first opened its doors to guests in 1995. Roy and Daphne Sargent built the house and three cabins and started the first llama treks in Western North Carolina. In 2002, they handed over the keys to Phil Rampy and Rob Scheiwiller, two Orlando businessmen who shared their love of the Smokies. Phil and Rob have added accommodations, renovated buildings, added special events facilities and their own upscale style, which they're well-known for in their Orlando ventures. Phil is the owner of Olde Town Brokers, and is most noted for his transformation of a once threatened Orlando neighborhood into the now blossoming Thornton Park district. In addition to owning Hawkesdene, Phil and Rob own a popular restaurant in Orlando, FL, where Phil is also a principal of EO Inn & Urban Spa. Together, they blend culinary talent and hospitality expertise to set an exceptional standard that is unsurpassed.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Our 36-acre private residential village adjoining the Nantahala National Forest consists of luxury homes, buildings and manicured grounds enhanced by the rushing waters of Phillips Creek. Interconnected by roads and trails Hawkesdene demonstrates elegance, quality and order. There is no other private estate this size and with so much attention to detail that will allow you an extended period of time to visit with your family and friends in comfort and style while an experienced and enthusiastic staff provide personal and professional service. It is an extraordinary getaway that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.
