Hawks Ridge Cabin - Saint James

Hawks Ridge Cabin may have all the touches and craftsmanship of an old home in the woods, but it’s actually fairly new. Builders did an amazing job capturing the cabin life charm with a variety of wood styles and country accents. The location is equally as phenomenal.

Dubbed “the sanctuary”, there’s probably not a better term to describe this cabin-like structure, that is also constructed of native stone. A solarium, which features a full glass wall and partial glass ceiling, allows guests to truly soak in the surrounding trees and nature. Set within the large deck, which hugs against the ivy-covered walls of the home, is a hot tub and pool table.
