We had a nice overnight there. The area is quiet and secluded. We were greeted by our hosts which were very hospitable. In the office area, you can borrow things like board games, binoculars and find lots of information on things to do in the surrounding area. We enjoyed just walking around the area and observing the birds, flowers, etc.... More

Truly a rustic little getaway for a couple or a group looking to relax and reconnect. We stayed in the Jacuzzi suite with fireplace and outdoor deck. It was cozy, quiet and very relaxing. The business is family run and George & Sherry were very helpful and friendly. They made us feel right at home and the view was calming.... More

Stayed in the deluxe cabin with two person Jacuzzi and gas fireplace. Micro and small fridge. They have an enclosed hot tub available to all guests but we did not take advantage. Fire pit available to all guests. Charcoal grill at our cabin. Staff was very accommodating. They have board games and movies you can borrow from the office. Not... More

7/11/14: What a great place!!! My wife and myself never go to a place without looking at the reviews. For some reason we looked at the web pages and booked the room with out looking at reviews. That must have been due to all the effort and great job on the web page. We felt if they put that much... More

We came to Hickory Hideaway on the recommendation of another business in a nearby town. We could not have been more pleased that we came here. Cabin is clean and attractively decorated. Location is pastoral and quiet, and two small town are nearby for dinning and grocery necessities. Our cabin had a micro wave, fridge and sink for food prep.... More

The owners, George and Sherry were very friendly and helpful. The luxury cabin was tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Our romantic stay was highly enhanced by the comfy king size bed, a cozy fireplace and a relaxing whirlpool tub for two.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful, relaxing weekend at Hickory Hideaway. We were looking for a "little cabin in the woods" to take a break from our crazy lives that offered all the amenities you'd want to relax, and we were 100% satisfied. Hot tub = check!
