Hawk Circle is located in the foothills of the Catskill and Adirondack Mountains - the land of the Mohawk Tribe. Surrounded by rolling green hills, we are inspired by the same wilderness that inspired James Fenimore Cooper's, Leatherstocking Tales.
Council Rock, the meeting place of the Iroquois Confederacy, sits at the mouth of the Susquehanna River and Otsego Lake, also known as Glimmerglass - a place where one can slip back into time of the Native heritage that is so prominent in this area. At the same place, you can see the mysterious castle named Kingfisher Tower, "dedicated to the Lady of the Lake" that protrudes from the western shores. Here is where the legends of the Native Americans and the Arthurian Legends of the Celtic people merge; two cultures otherwise separated by the vast Atlantic Ocean.
We draw from the legends and lore of the Native Americans and Celtic people, as they were both so powerfully connected to the natural world. Through their rich heritages, we are inspired to re-connect people to the magic, beauty and power of nature.
Hawk Circle is a vast wilderness, located on 200 acres with many diverse plants, trees and wildlife on the outskirts of the village of Cherry Valley. We're only 15 minutes from Cooperstown and Otsego Lake, and several New York State Historical Museums. While many people come to this area for the Baseball Hall of Fame, others visit in appreciation of the beautiful and serene wilderness, farms, and country B&B's.
In the other direction is the historic town of Sharon Springs, once an old spa town with sulphur baths and now revitalized with quaint shops and Inns, and home to the famous Beekman 1802 Mercantile.
We are located just an hour and 20 minutes from the Albany airport and train station. For GPS, please use 219 Hawk Circle Lane, Cherry Valley, NY . 13320.
