Hawke lives in a cabin located at Lake Hemet hours outside Los Angeles. Most common way to get there is to either taking a helicopter or drive a few hours with a car.
The cabin was shot at Stage 24 at Universal Studios. The background is a mate painitng to replicate he was living near the mountains. The only shots that were filmed at lake Hemet was the pier the helicopters landed on.
