Wonderful Mid-Week Getaway
Hidden Secrets was magnificent! I brought my wife here to celebrate her 40th birthday and we loved it. The property was beautiful and very relaxing. Rich and Pat were great hosts and made us croissants one morning.
We are so pleased that Hidden Secrets met your expectations both in price & in ambiance. Please tell your friends the "Secret" & come back to visit soon!
I stayed for a few nights by myself and thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet. The space is small (perfect for 1 or 2) and very well kept. The bathroom is very nice, kitchen well equipped, bed comfortable, and WiFi worked great. (Note: Verizon cell service purported to be good but my AT&T service was non-existent. Prepare for the onslaught of messages when you get back in range.) It’s a beautiful area and the owners of the property are very nice people. No reason to hesitate - book your retreat at Hidden Secrets!

Rich and Pat could not have been more nice and accommodating. The suite was as good as the pictures. Very Clean, well maintained, plenty of room. The kitchen provided an opportunity to shop and prepare small meals. You are in the woods with a stream below, which provided a tranquil setting while sitting on the porch. On the way into the property there were deer and turkey on the road. Follow Rich's directions and not the GPS, because the GPS person gets confused and takes you an inefficient path. A much better homey alternative to a hotel.
