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

Nature lovers retreat
This a beautiful cabin nestle in the middle of state and federal land with many trails for horse back riding. The owner is very accommodating. My family is planning on many more trips to this cabin in South Kentucky. It has all the amities that you need. Please keep in mind that it is very secluded so there is not a quick trip to the grocery store. To me this is a good thing. The pens and stables for the horses are in great condition. Can’t wait to get back next year.
Wonderful cabin with fantastic wrap around porch! Comfortable & cozy with relaxing hot tub!
We had a great time at Hickock cabin! The owner Rita was very helpful, a pleasure to work with, and responded very quickly! Her cabin is comfortable, cozy, nicely decorated, and well equipped with almost everything you need for a nice getaway! The kitchen is also nicely stocked with pots/pans etc as we did all our eating/cooking at the cabin. Beds are comfy with plenty of pillows and extra blankets, and plenty of towels in the 2 bathrooms. Our favorite features were the wrap around porch, fire pit, and hot tub! We had a full house so it was nice to spread out on the porch while enjoying the scenery. It also rained some during our stay and the porch provided cover so we didnt all have to be inside. The firepit is right off the porch in the front yard and we spent a lot of time there! Plenty of room around it and easy access to firewood in the surrounding forest. And the hot tub was fantastic! We are hot tub owners ourselves and this one was large, hot, and the jets worked great so we were very pleased with it! We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it! Missy
Thank you Missy!! Glad you all enjoyed your stay at our Hickok cabin. You are welcome to come back anytime you want. Regards, Rita
Wonderful cabin and the horse trails were awesome!
We had a great girls weekend and even rode our horses to Big South Fork river and went for a swim. The owner of the cabin was a great help and provided everything we needed to have a perfect stay. The horse barn and paddocks were top notch and well maintained and the hot tub was incredible. Thank you Rita!!
Great place to get away
The wood cabin was beautiful and well stocked. We really enjoyed the hot tub, the scenery and serenity.
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!
Very lovely cabin! Clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed! Can't wait to come stay again!
