  • The best decision we made when planning our wedding was to have it at Hawkesdene. We are from Chicago and decided to throw a destination wedding and thankfully came across Hawkesdene which fit our needs perfectly. It is a gorgeous setting that is undeniably beautiful and then on top of the gorgeous scenery, the accommodations are impeccable. They treat each cottage and room as though it was the most important one on the property. The food provided is top notch and comparable to some of the nicest restaurants I've ever been too. Our amazing wedding weekend was really made by the amazing staff at Hawkesdene(Jami, Rob, Caroline, John, Tim, Becky and several more). Not only did they pay to attention to every little detail but they were all so personable and friendly. All of our family and friends are already trying to plan a trip back so that we can experience our stay at Hawkesdene again...and we've only been home three days. I truly can say without hesitation that I could not have foun... Read more

  • From the impeccably kept grounds to the immensely hospitable and talented staff, my experience with Hawkesdene was incredible. In spite of bleak weather reports and a freak microburst that took out power for several, every element of my wedding weekend plan went off without a hitch. Our ceremony had been planned by the covered bridge but when rain kept us in the pavilion, Jami and her crew created an airy, romantic oasis around the fireplace to say our vows. Jami, Caroline, Tim, Jimbo, Katie, John and Maria were so caring and thoughtful, they felt like extended family by the end of our stay. Chef Caroline was completely open to amending the menus to fit the particular needs and tastes of our party. Her smokehouse BBQ dinner was definitely a favorite for us. She also created a custom dessert bar for my rehearsal dinner complete with all of our family favorites, including an abundant chocolate fountain display. When we went without power, Caroline "baked" my tres leches cake over gas bu... Read more

  • The Hawkesdene House is where wedding dreams come true!! Planning a wedding in North Carolina from Florida was intimidating at first but once we arrived, everything fell into place! We chose Hawkesdene because our families are from all over the country and we needed a place in the mountains that could accommodate everyone! Hawkesdene was above and beyond our vision of the ultimate wedding weekend! This is an absolutely perfect place to spend quality time with your family! It is cozy and inviting yet, the spacious cabins scattered all across the property allows for privacy, if needed. This was important for us because we had 69 people (some of which had never met) together for four days and it was INCREDIBLE!! The property is so gorgeous; pictures really don’t do it the justice it deserves. Every inch of the property is manicured to perfection! The food was 5 star all the way around! From breakfast, to lunch, and every delicious dinner. I have guests still talking about how am... Read more

  • Hawkesdene provided the most amazing weekend of our lives! My husband and I picked Hawkesdene for our wedding because it was a gorgeous venue in the North Carolina mountains that also provided the opportunity to have our family and friends together in an intimate setting for several days. It was the absolute best thing we could have decided on for our wedding, so much so, that we were sad to leave. I cannot say enough great things about Rob, the owner, and Jami, the Manager. Both worked with us throughout the year leading up to the wedding to ensure that our vision for the "perfect wedding" came to fruition. Even when we ran into some hiccups with some outside vendors, Jami came to the rescue, and took care of everything. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, she spent hours on the phone with me making sure she got every detail right and it paid off. Our wedding and reception looked as if they were straight off of Pinterest. It was breathtaking! From the moment we arrived at ... Read more

  • I had my wedding at Hawkesdene in late August and can't speak highly enough about the venue. It was such a beautiful location with DELICIOUS food! I still dream about the food there... The accommodations on property were well decorated and what I would consider mountain luxury- I absolutely loved them! Overall, the staff was willing to go above and beyond for us and were exceptionally friendly. I HIGHLY recommend this venue for your wedding day. If I could get married all over again, I would choose Hawkesdene all over again, without question. Jamie and Rob are very responsive, professional, and easy to work with. This venue is 5 STARS IN MY MIND!

  • From the moment we first drove into Hawkesdene Resort, we knew it was the place to create the wedding of our dreams. Rob, Phil, and their entire staff are the most gracious, caring hosts we’ve ever experienced. Hawkesdene’s food is exceptional; their service is unparalleled; their 34 acre property is beautiful and has more than enough space to congregate with our entire family for meals. Hawkesdene provided a stress-free environment and included the ceremony chairs, reception tables, chairs, linens, place settings and other table décor. Those things made it so easy for us to arrive and not worry about working with offsite vendors. We were able to experience the solitude and comfort of the smoky mountains, while also gathering with everyone that we hold dear to enjoy a weekend of love, laughter and fun. Our wedding ceremony and reception was Saturday. We were able to have breakfast with guests on Saturday morning and spend time with family and friends prior to the ceremony. On ... Read more

  • We're a little late getting to our reviews, but that shouldn't reflect on Hawkesdene. They were amazing in every aspect. From the day we met Phil & Rob on our initial site visit to the day we packed up the car to drive home as newlyweds, they never missed a detail. We could not have found a more amazing place to hold our weekend ceremony. The grounds are impeccably manicured and the lodgings were the most comfortable cottages we've ever been in. We rented the entire estate and to have all our family and friends staying on site for the entire weekend was the way to go. Jami & Crew were so on the spot with logistics you never had a moment to stress. You can tell they have been doing this for 20+ years as the experience shows. Every scenario is planned for and if something needed changed last minute, they knew exactly what to do. And the staff were so polite and courteous. What a great team. By the end of the weekend you felt like family. They made you feel like you were their... Read more

  • Myself, and my NOW wife, Leslie Hill, knew that it was a no-brainer to have our wedding at Hawkesdene as soon as we stepped foot on the property! The first night we got there, the power got knocked out from 11pm to 2am...so we built a bon-fire and lit all the candles in the pavilion. The The 2nd day we were there, we had a thunder/lightening storm that caused us to have to cancel our Smores Bonfire party and knocked out the cable for 1 day...not that we watched TV anyways. The 3rd day we found a poisonous snake that we had to have removed...and then we also realized that the Bakery had shorted us 50 cupcakes that were nowhere to be found. With all that said, there is no other place to have your wedding b/c Hawkesdene is TRULY a league of its own! The staff (Jami, Anita, John, Tim, and all the others) were at our beckon call every second that we needed them. As soon as they found out we didn't have enough cupcakes, the kitchen whipped us up 50 amazing cupcakes. When we found the snake,... Read more

  • I could write a book about how much my husband and I loved Hawkesdene. I spent months searching for the perfect wedding venue…yes, and I started before I was even engaged! I knew exactly what we wanted to create an unforgettable wedding weekend for our guests. We were in search of a venue that would be exclusively ours and would completely catered to us the entire weekend. When we stumbled upon Hawkesdene, we immediately knew we had found our diamond in the ruff. If I was not such a control freak, I would have totally booked this venue without doing a site visit. My fiancé and I did, however, do a site visit and booked immediately thereafter. We live in Chicago and always planned on getting married in Chicago or Michigan. Never would we have imagined we would get married in North Carolina! Now that we are happily married and our weekend celebration at Hawkesdene has passed, we can wholeheartedly say we could have NEVER imagined getting married anywhere else. The entire w... Read more

  • You know you've chosen the right wedding venue when your guests make plans to visit it again, before they've even left! My husband and I brought a group of approximately 40 guests to this gorgeous mountain retreat for a four-day getaway. From the first inquiry email to the last tearful goodbye, Hawkesdene and everyone associated with the property exceeded all expectations. I am a detail-oriented, organized worry wart; but I had absolutely no vision whatsoever for what my wedding should look like. The only concept I had in mind was that I wanted my friends and family to gather for an extended weekend - to enjoy a vacation together. Hawkesdene embodied that concept to a T, and they helped me uncover the rest of my vision by asking all the right questions, putting me in touch with top-notch vendors, and supplying ideas and pictures. Rob and Phil, the owners, were helpful and candid about what I did and did not need to spend our money on. [Do: hire a ceremony musician (we were thrilled wit... Read more

  • This place is amazing! It's located in a beautiful setting and provides space to bring family and guests together in one place. Hawkesdene also includes table settings and some decor pieces depending on what you're looking for. We found this very helpful. The meals were perfect- we had several special needs and they worked with us not problem! Our guests still talk about our wedding and Hawkesdene to this day. Everyone wants to go back!

  • Hawkesdene was exceptional. From the interactions over the phone and email with Rob to checkout... 100% perfect. The house is so beautifully decorated and comfortable as well as the surrounding cabins (wow). We had 45 of our family and friends at our wedding and the entire party stayed at Hawkesdene house Thursday-Sunday. Jamie was our on-site contact. She went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. The entire staff made our weekend fun, cozy, and extremely relaxing. The food. Oh the food! Matthew and the rest of the kitchen staff are magical! They will work with any food allergies or special needs and everything that came out of that kitchen was out of this world good! Touches such as Molten Brown shampoo/conditioner/body wash, bonfires, smores, housekeeping, snacks and sodas available 24/7, and much much more put this place over the top. The staff makes you feel like you're at home (if you were a princess and your home included someone to make your bed and a persona... Read more

  • Planning a destination wedding at Hawkesdene is so easy!! That was the key for me. I wanted a stress free wedding & that is exactly what I got. The property is even better in person, if you can imagine that. The staff is so nice! I knew Jami for a few days, but felt like I could talk to her like a friend by the time I left! And the FOOD!!!! Omgsh, I'm still dreaming about every. single. thing. I ate there. The cabins are gorgeous & the beds might be the most comfortable I've ever laid in. I did not want the weekend to end.
