We arrived at Cynthia's cabin after a long and trying drive. Surrounded by a winter wonderland, her house welcomed us as a safe haven and place of rest. I remember a sense of "home" when walking through the front door; the design, decor, and cleanliness of the cabin stirred a sense of wonder and joy in me. The wood stove (which, was super easy to get going) put off an ambiance of peace.
We awoke to breath-taking views of the valley and Mount Mitchell. It's been stated in other reviews, but pictures cannot capture the glory and grandeur of the expansive views. I felt a deep-seated delight and awe that I've not experienced in some time, as I peered over the sights in front of me.
Cynthia's neighbors are extremely respectful and kind human beings. Per our choice (and their willingness) we interacted with them a number of times. They always respected our space, privacy, and communicated only when we wanted to - that said, both my wife and I felt entirely safe on the mountain.
We're talking of returning to the cabin this summer. I highly recommend visiting this place - I believe you will find a deep pleasure and rest for your soul.
Thank you Cynthia - we'll be back.
Hawks View is the perfect getaway. Incredible view from the porch, the house is amazingly clean and stylish, and the overall vibe it gives you makes you never want to leave. This was our third year coming the Hawks View and we used the opportunity to get engaged! That's how special this place is to us. We will come back year after year no doubt.
The pictures of Hawks View House captured our fancy when we were exploring NC getaways. The property did not disappoint once we were on site at this beautiful, artistically appointed mountain home. The outside offers an open gateway to a quiet mountain retreat; the inside is classy, cozy, clean, and so much more. Even though it is a pet-friendly property, no odors betrayed that fact. If you want a quiet and remote getaway, Hawks View fits the bill. As an added plus, Cynthia is great to work with from the first point of contact through to the prompt return of the security deposit.
This was my second time staying at Hawks View House. The first time was with my sisters. We loved it so much, that I had to come back with my husband and 3 adult children. Plenty of space for us, very clean, beautiful views and so comfortable. I love all of the clear instructions. We will definitely be back!
From the moment we pulled in the driveway, I was in love with this awesome house! The artsy decor, spacious den and special touches throughout the house and grounds made this a place I'll want to come back to again and again. Each day, there was a new view with the changing clouds and sunlight. At night, millions of stars dotted the pitch black sky.
The kitchen is well equipped and I found it a necessity since most dining out involved some driving. There's a nearby grocery store to pick up those forgotten items, though and the openness of the kitchen area keeps you involved with your family & friends while preparing a meal.
My favorite thing about Hawks View? It's the hammock and porch swing!
My hostess, Cynthia, was so helpful in providing information both before and during our stay. I can't say enough good things about Hawks View!
Incredible Hawks View!! A piece of Heaven on Earth. This was my third stay and just as special as the previous visits. Am 82yo and visited alone. Needed to get away and “remember!” Perfect - totally equipped, easy living, contemplating, remembering a life well lived.
Very comfortable, clean and a perfect retreat. Ingles in Spruce Pine has everything you need to escape for a few days. Watched the Hawk arrive at 11:00 every morning and circle the valley far below.
There is lots to do in the area, but that was not the purpose of this visit. Perhaps will do more next time.
Beautiful place to stay for a romantic get away or active nature study. Cynthia is a most wonderful hostess.
Our stay at Hawksview cabin was comfortable, relaxing, peaceful & just what we needed for our vacation getaway. The cabin was equipped with everything we could possibly need & more. Spruce Pine provided excellent shopping & dining with lots of interesting shops to browse & make a few novelty purchases. We will definitely recommend this cabin to friends & family and plan future trips ourselves.
