The 36-acre private mountain estate offers exceptional facilities for your wedding, reunion or special group retreat. Our secluded cove is the ideal setting in the scenic mountains of Western North Carolina – a quiet escape in the beautiful forests near Andrews and Murphy, NC.
Stroll along the tree-lined gravel roads meandering through the property, walk the nature trails surrounding the estate and along Phillips Creek, hike to the Hawkesnest Pavilion with its views of the grounds and surrounding countryside, make the one-mile hike into the Nantahala National Forest to the hidden waterfall, or just sit in a swing out at the arbor and enjoy the lush surroundings, peace and beauty of Hawkesdene.
The gardens and grounds invite you to leisurely discover their beauty. The estate is a picturesque blending of manicured grounds, fabulous gardens, fruit trees, blueberry bushes, pastures and woodlands. You'll stroll along quiet paths that weave their way to a secluded waterfall or through the surrounding hills, and find yourself high above the estate gazing across the mountain tops.
A one-mile hike into the Nantahala National Forest leads to this beautiful waterfall.
