Why Jim and Laura Faria chose Morganton
We first discovered the Lake James area in 2005 and it was love at first sight, from the incredible vistas of Linville gorge, to the crystal clear mountain water that fills the lake and flows down the Catawba River, to the miles of shoreline to explore, all just minutes from the front door. We quickly developed a passion for introducing friends to the mountain to lake experience. We think this area is the best kept secret in North Carolina. Two years ago we had the opportunity to acquire this beautiful piece of land just one mile from the lake with the plan to expand our ability to offer people the extraordinary opportunity to enjoy a relaxing and stress reducing Mountain to Lake Retreat. We have been able to do this at extremely affordable rates compared to more heavily marketed destinations with higher name recognition

Very Nice house wish it could have worked for us.
The house is a little hard to find GPS does not take you to the right road. House is very nice, unfortunately both my husband and I needed to use the internet for work while we were on vacation, was not available for our stay, so we did not stay and drove 4 hours back home the same day, also the TV is only for DVD use be sure to bring some with you. If you do not need the internet and want to disconnect this would be the perfect house.
In an effort to clarify this guest review of our property....
This guest made a last minute request to stay, the evening before they would arrive. They requested early check-in and late check out, which we approved.
We happened to be out of town during the booking request, the hotspot for wifi is usually left as a courtesy to all guests. The TV is a Smart TV and functions more than for watching DVDs.
GPS brings you directly to the address for the property, however, the home is located off a shared access gravel driveway. Detailed instructions are given to each guest prior to arrival. In this case, she and I spoke as she was approaching the property and confirmed she had inadvertently passed the gravel road.
We appreciate each guest and respect their time spent on our property.
We reconciled with this guest and offered a refund.
Back to nature
We were in the area for my son's wedding and this home was perfect for our geographically separated (NC, WV, OH, CA) family to have privacy and that "home" feel that we could not have gotten in a hotel. The front porch is perfect for a quiet morning coffee or evening glass of wine. The fire pit and back patio also invite you to come sit awhile and visit.
While our visit was too short, this home gave us respite and peaceful setting during an otherwise chaotic weekend. This really is a special place. Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend there.
Laura was easy to contact and communication was great.
I will say however whatever you do, pull into the drive at a snail's pace (and I mean less than 15 mph) because the neighbor on the adjacent property will be standing in her yard or car port yelling at you and motioning for you to slow down. I pulled in slowly as the road is gravel and was only doing about 15 and she came running outside waving her arms gesturing for us to slow down.
Thank you for your kind review.
Hawks Feather Farm is a pleasant place to stay for families needing to be together rather than at a hotel in separate rooms.
In response to the neighbor on the adjacent property, we appreciate your feedback and have communicated with them.
We hope to see you again!

Hawks Feather Farm
Labor day weekend we won’t forget!
The house fit my family perfect! Great location to lake James! The highlight of our weekend was watching the kids catch blue gill, bass, and catfish from the pond (that made the kids’ weekend too!)!! We saw a few turkeys one morning too! We would definitely recommend this property and we will be staying again!
Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We enjoy hearing that you had a great time while there.
See you again!
Laura and Jim
