Activities/Attractions: Nestled in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains, is a wide scenic valley where the sun rises and sets over the tree-topped mountains, and the cool clear streams flow gently down the ridges. Andrews is a small town virtually untouched by large city influences and remains a place to enjoy a more leisurely pace of life. Enjoy:

  • Hiking and Walking
  • Fishing
  • Boating
  • River Trips
  • Horseback Riding
  • Golf
  • Bicycling
  • Theatre

Enjoy a mountain hiking and dining experience with a woolly companion. Our llama treks are the perfect ending to your day in the mountains — a climb to the peak of Hawksnest Mountain for a delicious grilled supper and sunset.

With accommodations for up to forty people, the Hawkesdene House Mountain Retreat is the ideal location for a small wedding, family reunion or group retreat. In 1925, the Folk School began its work with its founders hopeful that the quality of life could be improved by education, and in turn wanted to preserve and share with the rest of the world the wonderful crafts, techniques and tools that the mountain people used in every day life.


"The beautiful inn, ambiance, area, food and especially the friendly innkeepers, Melissa and Mark were top notch. The inn was clean. It felt very comfortable there. The llama trek to the top of the mountain in the evening for dinner was an added attraction. Close to golf courses, hiking trails and Chatuge and Nantahala Lake."

What a delightful destination! The main house is a beautiful country home with all the luxuries of a posh hotel but all of the comforts of your best friend's home. We relaxed, hiked, enjoyed the llama trek to the ridge for dinner and had a wonderful time. Breakfast is wonderful with fresh fruit from their own gardens."
