Private Estate


Imagine, for a moment, the celebration of a lifetime, with all your friends and family, on a private and luxurious 54-acre mountain estate that is yours and yours alone for the duration of your stay. This is Hawkesdene. Nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains in Andrews, North Carolina, Hawkesdene is located less than two hours west of Asheville and two hours north of Atlanta. This amazing venue is unique in its exclusive privacy, a reunion-style wedding venue with onsite accommodations for as many as 102 guests and event facilities for up to 125 guests. Our special property hosts just one group at a time and includes personal use of the entire estate with no curfews, elegant accommodations, beautifully manicured grounds and gardens, an abundance of chef-created, delicious cuisine, with a professional event and service staff here just for you. Hawkesdene prides itself on its differentiation from “same-day” venues, in which you’re in and you’re out so quickly. An extended stay here is about bringing all your close friends and family together for a comfortable, relaxing, private getaway in the mountains. Attention to detail here is second to none, as you’ll see the moment you arrive. Take a look at past reviews from people who’ve celebrated here. The constant hands-on improvement of, and investment in, the property is what helps keep Hawkesdene a place where expectations are exceeded and memories that last forever are born. To see it is to love it.
