A secluded get away providing an opportunity to rejuvenate or maybe to rekindle a romance in a luxury studio.... This location on four private acres, however, is central to restaurants, shopping, hiking and fun in the High Country. This property is nature at its best. Your patio gives a view - and sound - of the Creek below and the beauty of the mountains above, providing sunshine as well as a forested area which provides cool shade in the Summer. Spring brings many songbirds and a full moving loud stream; Summer brings berries, mountain laurel and native Rhododendron, while late Summer yields butterflies on an expansive area on the Creek. Hiking opportunities along the Blue Ridge Parkway and NC Mountains to Sea Trail are a quick drive over our hill, and the New River can be accessed about a mile away. Many options are available for restaurants about 20 minutes away in Boone as well as in the charming town of West Jefferson. In the winter, you will find skiing options begin about 45 minutes away in Blowing Rock with Beech or Sugar Mountains further out. Autumn in the High Country may provides trees turning red, orange and yellow and crisp evenings as the sun sets. Relax on the patio at the end of the day enjoying a glass of wine , cider, or coffee - no matter the Season, .... at "Hidden Secret!"

Why Richard McClerin chose Fleetwood
This property was the first completed section of the Manor House, and was designed to provide a quiet and comfortable place for rest and rejuvenation. The compact studio has high ceilings and dark beams, with the feeling of being wrapped in a luxurious country home enveloped by nature as well.
What makes this Studio unique
This studio apartment provides a comfortable place to rest; and includes both a small sitting area, with bookcase and TV, and a fireplace. (available for use in the Winter only, as it is a heater fireplace.) A large walk in shower is provided as well as a small kitchenette for cooking. The patio allows one to enjoy a meal, read a book, or meditate while listening and/or viewing the yard and creek below.

Hidden Secret - our new secret spot
We had an absolute wonderful time at Hidden Secret. The grounds where the property is located are beautiful, and the accommodations were quite comfortable. Pat and Rich are very gracious hosts, and we absolutely loved the homemade almond croissants. (Thanks Pat!!) The stream that runs below the house will lull you to sleep during the crisp cool mountain nights......absolute heaven. There is no air conditioning in the unit which was an initial concern, but we opened a window at night and turned on the ceiling fan, and the room was very comfortable to sleep in. My wife and I had left South Florida to escape the July heat, and this was a perfect choice. If you are looking for an inexpensive place to crash and don't want to stay at a crummy hotel, it does not get any better than this. It is a short drive to West Jefferson, Boone, and other local attractions. I will be making reservations again in the near future, so make sure to book early.
Jim, we enjoyed meeting you and having you both as guests..We look forward to seeing you again. Thanks and we are glad you had a nice time. Rich and Pat
Cool peaceful rest
Hidden secret is a true hidden treasure. Not far off the main road but the feel of being far away from it all. Peaceful quiet tranquility is found here in this beautiful well maintained, cool and comfortable location. Close to river activities, Boone and the parkway, this place has it all. Perfect for one person or a couple to enjoy. The kind hospitality shown by Pat and Rich make this place one we will return to again.
Beautiful property and grounds. So many flowers, and a stream to listen to and relax.
This was the perfect setting for our mother/daughter weekend. Close to everything, but far enough from the hustle and bustle for some much needed rest and relaxation. Our hosts were fabulous!
Very pretty and cozy accommodations.
Thank you for our stay and your hospitality! You have a beautiful place! It was a great location close to Boone, Blowing Rock and West Jefferson. We enjoyed the homemade croissants and Champagne! Although, we could hear noise from owners upstairs so it wasn’t as private as we were anticipating. We would recommend a mattress topper for those who aren’t used to a firm mattress. Overall cozy and warm!
Thank you for your review. Pat & I live in the main portion of our large private home in the separate upper living area. Hidden Secrets Vacation Rental occupies the separate lower level of our home. We are retired, go to bed early, don't have barking dogs, watch very limited TV , are reasonably quiet, don't throw loud parties, and respect the privacy needs of our guests. While we do not believe that noise originating from our living area is a serious problem for most guests, we do want to make sure that Hidden Secrets is a perfect place for a secluded get away for everyone. Therefore, we plan and will install sound blocking tiles in the Hidden Secret's ceiling in October 2018 in order to make sure that even our most discriminating guest needs are met. As to the firmness of the bed, some like it soft, others really like it firm. Again, thanks and because of your comments, Hidden Secrets will continue to be a wonderful vacation choice for our very many guests and friends.
Rich & Pat
My husband and I enjoyed our 2-day visit. We especially loved the little babbling brook at the bottom of the hill and sitting out on the patio watching the humming birds at their feeder. The studio apartment was inviting and cozy. The only drawback which keeps me from giving it 5 stars was that we found the mattress to be somewhat uncomfortable so that we did not sleep particularly well. Other than that, very nice....
Thank you for your review. We have just started booking Hidden Secret 8 weeks ago and have had 6 bookings staying in the home since we started booking. No one else has mentioned a problem with sleeping and with the new mattress and the bed. Thank you for sharing your comments with us. We will question all future guests regarding their opinion as to the bed and make appropriate adjustments , if and when necessary. We hope to see you again as a guest in our home.
