The Secret Bed & Breakfast
On the wooded side of our property is the "Tree-house." This lofted cottage is designed to bring back memories from childhood as it is designed with an actual tree-house in mind. It is decorated with a tree trunk and a ceiling of greenery. It features a queen bed, a jacuzzi with a shower on the side and a spectacular raised view over the property.
Four Guest Rooms
Tranquility and Serenity
The rooms upstairs provide a breathtaking view of the valley between Lookout Mountain and Weisner Mountain.
Weiss Lake can be seen as it lies snugly between the forest and farmlands. At dusk the horizon glistens with lights from the small peaceful towns below.
These rooms feature a king-size, mahogany rice bed. A balcony leads to a roof-top pool with a view second to none.
- Tranquility: $125
- Serenity: $125
Remembrance and Enchantment
Guest rooms have a balcony view of a secluded shady road that provides glimpses of frequently passing whitetail deer. This is a special location for nature lovers. Returning guests will remember that Carl always had animals in the fenced area.
To continue in this tradition, we have added two pygmy goats, Pinot and Merlot and a donkey named Jose' who thinks he's a dog.
These rooms feature two antique metal replicas of queen-sized beds. The main hallway leads to the roof-top pool. Remembrance does not have Direct TV Access.
- Remembrance: $95
- Enchantment: $105
The secret's Main Lodge area offers four guest rooms. Each room with private, full baths and balconies. All rooms are located upstairs. Remembrance has a DVD/VCR player. Serenity, Tranquility and Enchantment have a DVD/VCR player and Direct TV.
Guests may enjoy movies in their room from our collection located in the lodge. All guests enjoy a full country breakfast or pancakes, use of the lodge pool and grounds.
The 1850s Style Jail
The 1850s style Jail House is the best. Great for laughs, surprise birthdays and for those with a sense of humor. Tell your friends you spent the weekend in jail-better yet, your anniversary or wedding night!
One guest commented, "I can't remember what I did on a lot of anniversaries but I'll never forget this anniversary. I spent it in jail!" Guests are greeted by "Shakes," a wooden, life size gunslinger just 'a mind'n his business while standing on your front porch. Step inside and you'll feel like you've stepped into history!
Your view from the private deck or shall we say your private jail cell!
The Nautical Cottage
The largest of all the cottages, "The Cottage," is a ground level facility decorated in the lighthouse motif and wicker furniture. It has been designed for the comfort of two who enjoy roomier accommodations or for those who love to cook.
The kitchen is complete with dishwasher, microwave and garbage compactor. The Cottage features sunsets from a very private viewing area. This is a must for those who enjoy privacy and spacious accommodations.
The Sugar Shack
The Sugar Shack is a dream hide-a-way!
The most romantically decorated cottage is the, appropriately named, "Sugar Shack!" An enchanting layered stone cottage; this is a must for honeymooners and those who have fallen in love forever. Located adjacent to the secret, The Sugar Shack offers the ultimate in privacy as well as a bed & breakfast experience, the best of both worlds.
Visit the lodge or the roof top pool at your leisure. Indulge yourself and your loved one in the luxury of a two person Jacuzzi surrounded by mirrors. Snuggle in a king-sized bed as flames flicker from the fireplace. Enjoy your private deck with a breathtaking view of Weiss Lake which is often moonlit with silver reflections. This cozy stone layered cottage is perfect for honeymooners, special occasions or just a long needed, quiet weekend. Sorry, no shower.
