Hawkesdene is a magical place that offers guests the convenience of on-site accommodations and group dining, and our experienced staff blends southern hospitality with experienced event planning.
Our mountain retreat provides plenty of space for family reunions and special group retreats. Without leaving the estate you can hike the trails around the property, to the hidden waterfall located in the Nantahala National Forest or up to the top of our mountain to the Hawkesnest Pavilion. There are a variety of games and puzzles, a pool table, ping pong table, card tables, basketball court and two horseshoe courts. You can reminisce in front of a fire at the fire pit located next to the creek or inside the open air pavilion. Located nearby there is whitewater rafting the Nantahala or Ocoee Rivers, zip-lining, horseback riding, fly fishing, golf and skeet shooting.
Hawkesdene also has the perfect combination for your next corporate retreat, business planning session, team building getaway or leadership workshop – seclusion, comfort, location and lots of quiet conversation areas for break-outs.
We’re just a few hours from Atlanta, Charlotte, Greenville and Chattanooga; Andrews even has a regional airport that accommodates private planes.
Hawkesdene offers many areas for conversation, friendly competition and entertainment, both inside the main house and on the grounds.
We have accommodations for 86 people on site and can arrange for other nearby vacation rentals.
We are happy to help you plan your events. Please contact Hawkesdene via phone or email for current menus and rate plans.
