About Ray Richter

Born and raised in South Florida, we fall in love with the peaceful quiet setting of this property where we can be far away from the hustle and bustle of the big cities yet close enough for convenience. This is our dream place where we can smell the fresh air, come to relax and meet our families from other parts of the country. Great place for family get togethers and enjoy each other for holidays or any time of the year.

Ray Richter purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Ray Richter chose Marion

This property offers everything anyone would want, 33 acres from the main road includes flat areas to top of the mountain. Fresh spring water from the creek, it is better than any bottle water sold in stores. Flat area for growing our own organic fresh veggies, fruits, blueberries and blackberries everywhere. Hiking all the way upto the top of the mountain and looking at all the great scenery around the Blue Ridge Mountain has to offer.

What makes this cabin unique

We just love everything about the home from the first minute we saw it advertised on the internet we bought it without even actually seeing it. The beautiful pastures, the swing on the porch, where we can sit relax and smell the fresh air and looking at the flowers and out into the the woods. The home is very private surrounded with wooded land all around it , feels like you are in your own paradise in the woods. The arched entryway and the beautifully shiny stained walls and floors just took our breath away. Very large rooms and bathrooms, open floor plan great for getting the family together.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I decided to head to the Ashville/Blackrock NC area to spend our Christmas holiday and landed on the Sugar Hill Cabin. So glad we did - Ray is a great host, and the cabin is all as advertised. Plenty of space, large very well equipped kitchen, and bedrooms were large and super comfortable. Great experience for my family - we will definitely be back!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, my parents and I really enjoyed our stay. The cabin had plenty of room, was nice, clean and had everything we needed. We had a great time even though we had to stay inside one day because of some really bad weather. The cabin was just what we needed. The only negative thing I might say was there is no noise barrier so if that matters, you may need to be aware of that.

Relaxation in the Rain

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this cabin very much! It was very well stocked in the kitchen and had a lovely porch with seating and a porch swing. Very relaxing to listen to the rain we had during our stay. And we must say, we became great friends with Zuli, the camel, so much fun to see her up close and feed her carrots.
