About Rita C

My husband and I live near the shore in North Carolina and we have always loved going to the mountains with our beautiful Rocky Mountain horses. The peaceful atmosphere and beautiful scenery takes my breath away. The Hickok has always been my favorite cabin and for years I dreamed of owning it and last year my dream came true as the current owner at the time was ready to sell. Now, looking ahead a couple of years, it's our intention to move there and spend our retirement years there.

Rita C purchased this house in 2017

The wood cabin was beautiful and well stocked. We really enjoyed the hot tub, the scenery and serenity.

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this delightful cabin! It was just far enough from everything to feel as though we were "away from it all," but close enough that we could easily enjoy all the area had to offer (great hikes, beautiful scenery and some great Southern hospitality). The cabin was clean and well stocked with towels, kitchen appliances and utensils, and extra blankets if needed. The owner recently added a hot tub, which was an amazing and very utilized surprise! The owner was fantastic and incredibly responsive. My kids have already asked when we are coming back again!
