After traveling down a two lane road that seems to be off the beaten path, you suddenly come upon this wonderful property and home. It is like an oasis in the mountains. It is beautiful! Mark and Melissa Harris were the gracious innkeepers at the Hawkesdene House. We were given a tour of the house and told the history of the B&B. Our room was immaculate! The deck, on the back of the house, looks out into the woods and a babbling brook can be heard below. There are many chairs and rockers on the deck for the guests relaxation. Breakfast was served at 8:30 and was wonderful!!! A full gourmet breakfast that left us stuffed! I even had to have two of the recipes. We highly recommend this B&B and would definitely stay there again!
