“Warm and inviting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Have stayed at many bed and breakfasts. We absolutely adored the lodge, view, food, socializing. We will definitely go back. The beds were not as soft as we would have liked but everything else made up for it. Very romantic anniversary dinner at Classic on Noble in Anniston. Regarding LE1977 review, he obviously thinks his life and style are all that matters. What is TACKY is his review. Do us all a favor who appreciate a B&B like the Secret, and go back to the Ritz Carlton. Helpful hint - take the stick out of your *!# before you go to bed so you don't hurt yourself.

Beautiful property on a mountaintop with views for miles! This is a famous local mansion with lots of history and well written stories in guest books provided by the inn owners. We had a wonderful time here and are glad to say it was worth the money spent for an escape from the real world.Nice staff and a good breakfast were provided.The amenities were nice and we plan to return sometime in the future.The rooftop pool is awesome!

this place is why my wife and I love bed and breakfasts. All I will say is "you will not be disappointed"

Room Tip: the rooms with a view are well worth the extra $

My wife and i wanted to spend a weekend away and stumbled upon the Secret. We are glad we did. Kris and Charlie are grand hosts that honestly cared about our comfort. Their hospitality has never been matched in any of our previous trips. The Nautilus (our cabin) was clean, comfortable, serene and spacious. And, the view, is spectacular!!! Don't miss this gem hidden in the mountains!!!

Room Tip: The lodge has four rooms upstairs adjacent to the huge pool (excellent valley view). The Sugar Shac...

The Secret is the best place to stay in the fall with all of the leaves changing and the view is absolutely indescribable. Everyone will fall in love with the place. The HUGE table built inside the house is definitely something to see. The people are a gem and the amenities are awesome. A little pricey for some but well worth the treat for a week or weekend to remember!

We stopped at the The Secret on our way down to our annual Gulf Coast trip. We were only staying for a few nights and going to continue on. We loved Kris and Charlie and their hospitality. The food was wonderful. By the time we were there for 2 days, we looked at each other and said, "Let's just stop now.This is worth missing the rest of the trip." We rearranged our trip, called our friend on the Gulf Coast and had her come up to stay with us. Every morning, over a cup of coffee, we watched the sunrise over the valley. When we left, we left behind friends.

My parents are headed down to the Chattanooga area at the end of this week. I called and booked a early Mother's/Father's day gift for then at where else but The Secret?
