At Hawk’s Nest you’ll enjoy all four seasons of the year! Summer brings exquisite weather, slightly cooler at higher altitudes. Autumn offers a show of fiery colored leaves and many local festivals. The colder winter season may find you cozying up to a crackling fire or enjoying seasonal outdoor activities. Watch spring unfold as chirping birds and nature comes to life and beautiful rhododendrons and other flowers burst into full bloom.
