Guestbook comments from the owner

I wish we had more time at your lovely, cozy cabin! It feels like home with everything we needed. It's so peaceful!! We loved sitting on the porch just listening to nature while we sipped coffee in the mornings and then just relaxing in the evenings. It's the simple things that you can really slow down and enjoy here at the cabin. We even saw some deer one day. We loved our hike on Mt. Jefferson and the stunning views, especially at sunset. We also drove along the Blue Ridge Parkway to see the Cascades Falls. And the people in town were so friendly. We are so thankful for our stay at your Secluded Hideaway! Thank you for all the fine hospitality and we hope to come back for longer one day!

Another great stay at the Secluded Hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Secluded Hideaway is a home away from home. We enjoyed a wonderful week with our 2 sons and their friend. The fall leaves were beautiful! We enjoyed fantastic views from the overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The creek at Julian Price Lake picnic area along with the fall foliage made some beautiful photography! I can't wait until next year! Thank you Bill and Audrey for sharing your lovely home.

Nice quiet getaway..

  • 5 of 5

Very comfy. We had 5 women on a 3 day trip. We had plenty of room. The living room had lots of seating. Lots of chairs on the porch. We didn't have any children so we didn't use lovely firepit and swing set. We did some knitting and crocheting and shopping and sightseeing. Great museum in Jefferson. We took a short trip to Boone. Visited Mount Jefferson State Park and Holy Trinity Fresco in Glendale Springs. Good lunch at Boondock Brewing. Ice cream at Ashe County Cheese Factory. We love the Ingles. This is our second year in West Jefferson and we were really glad not to have to worry about gas this year!!! It wasn't very cold so we didnt get a chance to use the fireplace..We hope to come back.

So peaceful and relaxing! !

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd visit to the cabin, we were so excited to squeeze a week in! As before the cabin was so welcoming and homey! We loved the knew leather furniture in the living room, so comfortable and beautiful! There's so much room to spread out between the upstairs and downstairs, fully stocked as usual and decorated so cute with a bear theme! Even tho it rained 2 full days, we were able to sit on the front porch glider together and enjoy God's refreshment! We will be back, it's so easy to deal with Bill and his son Bobby. Thank you for allowing us the privilege to vacation in your beautiful cabin!!
