Hickory Corner, known as the Pumpkin House at Stokes State Forest, is a unique example of storybook architecture, magically built from stone, forest and fairy tales, complete with pumpkin-shaped stone sculpture. Full of surprises: bell tower, book nooks, loft, pub-style bar & family diversions. Enjoy swimming beach & paddling on Culver's Lake w/a canoe & a kayak. Adjoins the Appalachian Trail, near state fishing streams, art colony, hunting grounds, restaurants and 9-hole golf course. Enjoy it!
