I can't say enough good things about Hickory Hideaway. The cabins are very clean, cozy, and pretty - you can sit on the deck and watch for eagles or even gaze at the beautiful stars at night. The owners are extremely accommodating and friendly - literally above and beyond anywhere I've stayed in the past. It was peaceful and relaxing, and is a great environment for everyone from entire families to a couples retreat or a girlfriend getaway. If you like to be on the move, you have dining, shopping, hiking, and entertainment nearby - Mississippi Palisades is gorgeous and definitely a 'must-see' & I would definitely recommend Raven's Grin Haunted House (which, I was surprised, is open year round). I will definitely be returning - and I definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
