About Grub Garvin

The Garvin family established Hawk's Nest Beach over 100 years ago as a family vacation area. The beach has 49 cottages to rent during the summer and six are winterized for off season stays or monthly rental. The family is in the fifth generation of management. Many of our renters have been coming to Hawk's Nest for decades and enjoy seeing friends they have made over the years. We have families that rent several cottages for family reunions at our beautiful resort.

Grub Garvin purchased this house in 1895

What makes this house unique
