A 5 minute easy drive up to this beautiful custom built home will reveal a hidden gem… one sure to soothe the soul and ensure you forget your worries down below. Welcome to Hawk’s View, a sanctuary on top of the world! This luxurious stone and log home is the perfect basecamp for your mountain retreat. Step inside and you’ll find an open living and dining room with soaring ceilings, stone fireplace, hardwoods and access to top floor deck. The adjacent kitchen is fully equipped to handle your culinary and entertaining needs. As you wind around the back of the kitchen, there’s a wet bar with wine chiller and laundry to the left, along with access to covered grilling deck on the right.

Stroll up the gorgeous staircase to access a guest room with twin beds and full bath on the left and master suite on the right. Wake up to stunning views in the luxurious queen bed. A large, walk-in closet leads to the master bath with a tile walk in shower.

The lower level features a fantastic space to lounge and play. Here, there is another bedroom with views and a queen bed, a bunk room with 6 bunks and beautiful bathroom with a tile walk-in shower. The kids (and grown up kids) will love the game room that offers Packman and Pinball arcade games. The lower level living room also boasts a stone fireplace and TV. From here you can access the large lower deck with the same great views… a nice, private spot to sip your morning coffee as you watch the sunrise. After breakfast, take a stroll up to breathtaking Shunkawauken Falls… only a half mile up the road.

You’ll immediately feel inclined to head outside onto the upper deck . Grab a glass of wine and some friends and unwind on the Adirondack chairs… or grill some filets and dine outside, while the sun fades behind you. Once you return, enjoy an evening fire in the outdoor fireplace with the stars shining bright above you.

You will find Hawk’s View to be the epitome of enjoyment and relaxation in the foothills of Western North Carolina.

I have rented many properties through HA, but this one is a jewel! The architecture, decor, and livability of this home makes for a classy yet comfortable mountain experience. The view is a Hawk's world with at least 180 degrees of expansive Blue Ridge landscape. We most enjoyed the great room, kitchen and decks which provide plentiful conversation spaces for a large group. We cooked in the well-appointed kitchen, chilled in the hot tub, made s'mores in the fireplace, and walked up to the waterfall. What else can you ask for?

Horse Show Trip Turned VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Hawk's View for one week (Monday to Monday) while in town for a summer horse show at Tryon International Equestrian Center and had a fantastic experience. The house has every amenity you could possibly need, including a beautiful and modern kitchen (fully equipped with all the essentials!), spacious and comfortable living spaces, internet and TV, washer/dryer, cozy bedrooms (the master has an AMAZING walk-in closet for long stays and a beautiful bathroom!), and more. The house is exactly as the photos appear and also immaculately clean and well-managed. Perhaps my favorite parts of the house were the two balconies, both off of separate living spaces on two different floors - perfect if you are sharing the house with multiple families or just want the kids to have their own separate space to decompress. The drive up and down the mountain to the Equestrian Center was a breeze - 15-20 minutes maximum - and it's also nice that the commute passes through the town of Columbus so you can grab whatever you need at the grocery store, CVS, gas station, a bite to eat, all while on the way. There are plenty of great restaurants and little towns with fun shops to explore nearby, but you may end up loving the views from the balconies so much that you opt to make a meal yourself in the fabulous kitchen and enjoy it outside. While I personally was in town for the horse show, Hawk's View would make the perfect retreat for a girls' weekend, relaxed honeymoon in the mountains, or family reunion. It's a versatile rental with amenities that are equal to (and maybe even surpass...) a five-star hotel, and no matter what you are in town for, you will feel like you are on vacation at Hawk's View!
