36-Acre Estate; Main House and 7 Cottages, 1 Studio; 24 BR & 20BA; sleeps 68

Hawkesdene is a Private Mountain Estate located in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Nestled in a private cove on 36 acres, the entire estate is available for your destination wedding, family reunion or special group retreat.

The Main House is a 10,000 square foot seven bedroom, seven and a half bathroom three level home with terraces, balconies and a massive open air pavilion attached to the house. In addition, there are seven private cottages and one studio that include a living room with fireplace, cable TV, central heat and air, washer & dryer, inside and outside dining areas, screened porch, and a fully equipped kitchen.

With the Main House, seven cottages and one studio the estate has a total of 24 bedrooms and can accommodate up to 68 guests in elegant accommodations; and dining is available for up to 125 event guests. Luxury 'Hotel Quality' appointments & amenities, beautiful landscaping, lush gardens & orchards, vineyard, and impeccably manicured grounds ensure a comfortable and memory-making experience.

We also have an adjoining 3 acre property called Hawkesview that is available as an 'add on' to estate rental or may be rented separately for a reduced rate and includes another 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and sleeps 10 - 18 guests.

Without leaving the estate, you can hike from your door to a hidden waterfall or sit at our massive stone fire pit or walk the trails along Phillips Creek that meanders through the property. And just minutes away you can enjoy mountain biking, zip lining, golf, fly fishing, horseback riding, scenic drives, shopping and white water rafting adventures on the nearby Ocoee or Nantahala rivers.

About Rob Scheiwiller

Hawkesdene first opened its doors to guests in 1995. Roy and Daphne Sargent built the house and three cabins and started the first llama treks in Western North Carolina.

In 2002, they handed over the keys to Phil Rampy and Rob Scheiwiller, two Orlando businessmen who shared their love of the Smokies. Phil and Rob have added accommodations, renovated buildings, added special events facilities and their own upscale style, which they're well-known for in their Orlando ventures.

Phil is the owner of Olde Town Brokers, and is most noted for his transformation of a once threatened Orlando neighborhood into the now blossoming Thornton Park district.

In addition to owning Hawkesdene, Phil and Rob own a popular restaurant in Orlando, FL, where Phil is also a principal of EO Inn & Urban Spa. Together, they blend culinary talent and hospitality expertise to set an exceptional standard that is unsurpassed.

Rob Scheiwiller purchased this estate in 2002

What makes this estate unique

Our 36-acre private residential village adjoining the Nantahala National Forest consists of luxury homes, buildings and manicured grounds enhanced by the rushing waters of Phillips Creek. Interconnected by roads and trails Hawkesdene demonstrates elegance, quality and order. There is no other private estate this size and with so much attention to detail that will allow you an extended period of time to visit with your family and friends in comfort and style while an experienced and enthusiastic staff provide personal and professional service.

It is an extraordinary getaway that you and your guests will talk about for years to come.
