About the property

Custom Log Home With Panoramic View. Hot Tub,fire Pit,game Room,wifi!

Step inside, relax, and enjoy your stay. This new, custom log home was built with the intention of offering a private, serene location to enjoy with family and friends and in which to create lasting memories. No detail has been overlooked to help you feel at home and to ensure your first stay will not be your last.

You will immediately feel your tension release as you drink in the views from inside or outside of the home. Each oversized window or two large decks features breathtaking views of the mountains and valleys. Please be on the lookout for the two hawks circling the property after which we derived our name.

This home features many upgrades including granite countertops throughout, tiled-floor baths, custom cabinetry and stonework, a gas burning fireplace, Wifi internet, surround sound stereo, and tastefully designed decor chosen to create an ambiance of comfort and relaxation.

The heart of the home, the kitchen, is complete with an oversized granite-topped island surrounded with stonework, custom carved Hickory wood cabinetry and winerack, tile flooring, stainless steel refrigerator with icemaker and water filter, dishwasher, flat-top stove, oven, Cuisinart coffee maker, toaster and many cooking items, dishes, and utensils needed to make a memorable meal.

Step into the greatroom off of the kitchen to enjoy your view from the two-story panoramic windows. This room features vaulted ceilings, a gas-burning fireplace to warm up to on chilly nights as well as a flat screened tv should you want to feel connected to the outside world. Or, step out of this room onto the large three sided deck. Feel free to use the telescope for sky gazing or the binoculars for spotting birds and wildlife. On this deck you will find a large Jacuzzi with color changing lights, surrounding speakers, robe hooks, and breathtaking views. There is also a gas grill for cookouts and four rockers in which to relax and share stories.

There are three floors in the home with room to spread out on each. No matter which bedroom you choose, each offers a panoramic view of the sunrise peaking over the mountains in the morning. What a great way to start the day!

The main floor master bedroom features a queen custom Alpine wood bed from Colorado. The room contains collectibles from the owner's travels to Norway and offers a Scandinavian feel. The upper master features a queen wrought iron and wood bed offering a truly lodge-like feel. This room is very spacious and could easily hold a crib as well. The upper bunk room is built with fun in mind! There is a bunk bed and single bed. Again, each of these three single beds will have a gorgeous view of the mountains out of the oversized window. The basement level bedroom contains a queen bed, private tile-floored bathroom, large closet, and large window. Outside of this bedroom is the gameroom. This is where a fun time is to be had by kids of all ages! Featuring a competition-sized ping pong table, a Connelly professional 8x4 pool table, dart board, flat screen tv, Wii, and board games. This room contains a comfortable sofa that converts into a double bed. Just outside of this spacious, tile-floored game room is another three-sided deck on which to relax and enjoy the views from its wooden rockers. There you will also find the wood pile to use in the log fire pit just down from this deck. Complete with wooden Aderondack chairs and skewers, we hope you will enjoy roasting marshmallows and hot dogs or just breathing in the crisp mountain air while listening to the crackling fire, rustling leaves, or chirping crickets.

This mountain top property is situated on 2.5 wooded acres and surrounded by the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its' circular driveway provides easy access to and from the home. Depending on the rain fall in the area, you might hear the small bubbling creek on the property. The landscape contains many native flowering shrubs, and trees, oversized rocks, as well as birds and wildlife.


Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather this time of year. The gravel roads on the mountain are private, and are not always cleared immediately after snow or ice storms. If you cannot make it due to weather issues, we will give you a credit for another stay.

About Victoria Kikut

Erik, originally from Norway, and Victoria from the U.S., met in the Charlotte, NC area where they currently reside with their two children.

'We have enjoyed traveling to Norway almost every summer to visit family. There they have some of the most beautiful mountains in the world. There is just something about being surrounded by mountains that brings a sense of peace and total tranquility. We decided we wanted to have a place that reminds us of that feeling and of the mountain cabins in Norway. Also, we felt we needed a place to unplug, reconnect and bond with family and friends, while being able to enjoy all of the beauty nature has to offer. We felt that Lake Lure was the perfect location for us to build our log cabin as it is not too far from our home in Charlotte, offers many area attractions, has beautiful mountains,and one of the most beautiful man-made lakes in the world. Lake Lure was also where the movie Dirty Dancing was filmed! We would love to share our home with you in hopes that you will create your own lasting memories with those special people in your life.'

Victoria Kikut purchased this cabin in 2013

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived on top of this mountain right before dusk and wow what a ride up with an extra bonus (fog). For us two days of fog kept us snug as a bug. We celebrated Christmas and we had each and every moment filled with fun, love, and all the amenities this home offered. Our grandchildren slid down the hills with their spooner boards with hours of fun, roasted marshmallows, children loving the jacuzzi, a family hike, a trip to Chimney Rock, and then to Hendersonville for some shopping. What a blessing to have this experience. Something for everyone!

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a long weekend with some friends at Hawk's View and it was truly the perfect girl's weekend! The drive up the mountain in the dark was definitely a bit hairy but no issues and the directions from the owners were spot-on and very helpful. The cabin was wonderfully equipped with everything we could possibly need and so many extra touches like s'more supplies, plenty of firewood, bathrobes and chocolate, toiletries in bathroom, etc. The views are beautiful and the hot tub was enjoyed by all. We had plans to hike but the weather didn't cooperate but we were perfectly happy staying at the cabin the entire weekend! Would love to visit again and definitely would recommend Hawk's View to anyone looking for a (secluded) relaxing vacation.

Mountain Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Hawk's View cabin is a wonderful place to stay in NC. The house was incredibly clean and fully equipped with everything you will need for your stay. We loved the beautiful mountain views, the game room and the hot tub on the deck. Victoria was extremely responsive and accommodating. We are already planning our next trip back!

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation. The cabin has an amazing view. The hot tub was perfect. Game room was awesome. The road up to the cabin was no joke. I have a crossover SUV and had no issues going up or down without 4x4, however we had perfect weather. Had it have snowed I'm not sure what we would have done. Make sure you stock up on food/supplies because the grocery store is at least a 30 min drive. Don't bother going snowtubing at moonshine mountain. It's 1.5 hrs away, only has 2 lanes to slide down, it's costs $30 and when we went it was a 2 hour wait for a tube. I do think the check in hours for winter should be 3pm. I can't imagine having to make that drive up for the first time in the dark. Chimney Rock was really cool. Lots of shops and restaurants. Overall the house is amazing and we had a great time. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Perfect Christmas getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this beautiful

cabin for the Christmas holidays. The house is perched on a hill - with a few that is stunning from every angle.

The house is decorated perfectly - the couches are comfortable, kitchen table it large and has sitting for 8, and the kitchen is well equipped. All the bedrooms have comfortable beds and stunning views. Game room was a big hit!

The owners are easy to work with and answered any question within a few hours. I highly recommend this cabin! You will not be disappointed.
