About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)

This beautiful Appalachian style log home sits high atop the mountain with spectacular long range views. Picture yourself enjoying a cup of coffee on the expansive deck while you watch the mist of the Great Smokys burn off and reveal the mountains below one by one. Finish off your day in the mountains, watching the sunset as the stars illuminate in the sky, immersing yourself in the hot tub right on your own deck. You'll feel your body shedding the stresses of everyday life, and remembering why you went on vacation. To relax, and get away.

Decorated impeccably with the highest quality rustic furnishings Hawks Ridge will give you a magical feel. Amenities include 20 foot wood beamed ceilings, oak hardwood floors, a carved and handcrafted log staircase, and a magnificent floor to ceiling Colorado River rock fireplace.

The cabin features a loft, two bedrooms and two and a half baths. The full size kitchen is fully equipped with all top quality appliances and utensils.

For your entertainment the cabin offers 3 TV's, one a 42 inch LCD large flat screen, 32 inch LCD in the master, and a 27 inch TV in the loft, DVD, VCR, DSS satellite system, pool table, WII games, books and board games.

Outside amenities include a 6 person Hot Tub, gas grill, and a fire pit (wood provided) with seating for 6 people. Enjoy a meal on the covered front deck at the patio table or just relax on the rockers.

Hawks Ridge is located just 10 minutes from Bryson City, 15 minutes from the the Nantahala Outdoor Center and just outside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park.

This cabin which sleeps up to 6 people is perfect for a romantic getaway, couples get together, a family vacation or family event.

Please note that in order to access the cabin, and it's beautiful views, you have to travel up a mountain road. It is paved 95% of the way, and hard-packed gravel the other 5%, and easy enough to acess the cabin with any vehicle with 4 wheels (cars, trucks, SUVs, etc. Note: you DO NOT need a 4 wheel drive vehicle to get up to the cabin). However, the cabin CANNOT be accessed with a motorcycle. There are numerous switch-backs on the road up to the cabin, and inherently dangerous for any 2 wheeled vehicle. We have had guests leave their motorcycles down from the mountain, in a safe environment, and then drive up to the cabin in another vehicle. Arrangements can be made if that is helpful to you.

Except for holiday weekends, I have set the policies to allow 1 night requests. I do this because there are some nights that can be rented for just one night (e.g. last minute bookings or nights that are adjacent to other reservations and therefore do not leave unrentable gaps in the calendar)

Not impressed!

  • 3 of 5

There was dog hair and dog poop in the driveway. We were not happy when we stepped in the poop. The Wii doesn't work and the trees needed trimmed. We stayed there two years ago and the view was great. Now it's over grown and you can't see anything.

Top Rated Cabin on Top of the Mountain

  • 5 of 5

This property was AMAZING! The wood features as you first walk in is breath taking. It's simply decorated with accented "bears" hehe and it "felt" clean. It didn't feel dingy or run down as some cabins do. We only stayed one night but we are already planning a family trip! The views are amazing and we felt like we were in the woods! We were disappointed we couldn't build a fire in the fire pit to roast marshmallows but it had just rained. The pool table is a nice addition! spacious and lots of room. Linens and towels were clean. The gas fireplace was nice, warm and toasty! I wish we had sunny day because we could only imagine what the views would have been like for sunset and sunrise! AMAZING!

Being afraid of heights, I probably should have thoroughly read the directions to the property. The drive up the mountain was a little scary. I do mean UP the mountain. The directions they provided were very clear and exact but driving up the one way road to the unknown was a bit scary. Driving down was not that bad. We had issues connecting to the wifi but it was all the better to be disconnected to the world. We connected with each other and enjoyed each other's company. The weber grill is nice but could use a spruce up or a new one. (flames were really low and uneven so our food took longer to grill) Owner response time is not the fastest but overall our experience was AWESOME!

Hawk's Ridge Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

Our stay consisted of 5 nights the week of February 13th, 2017.

We went with another couple and our two yorkies and we enjoyed our stay in the cabin along with the fireplace and the pit outside. The cabin was clean and had the necessary amenities. Other than the WIFI, which did not work, everything seemed to be well maintained. The view was spectacular and the walks within Sky Cove were enjoyable. I would recommend this place for a quiet and scenic vacation.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. I rarely get to go there but indeed love the view every time I am there. Watershed Cabins is the local management company and has staff available 7 days per week, including after-hours people, for issues such as the WIFI. Many times just a power-cycle of the modem can solve problems. They don't have any record that there was an issue with the internet, which is DSL service provided by Frontier, and I am sorry you weren't able to utilize this feature. Even if the service had an interruption from Frontier, the Watershed Cabins office has portable HotSpot devices that they can provide to make sure all of the listed features and amenities are provided to the best of our abilities. Thanks for your review, and please come back soon!
