Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first family vacation since my divorce 8 years ago. Being a single mom has been tough but rewarding. This trip allowed me to remove the outside world and grow my relationship with my son and daughter. It truly felt like a "home" atmosphere and the people are very friendly. We will definitely be booking again and appreciate the opportunity to stay here. We shared a lot of "first" here. Thank you!!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We love this cabin outside of West Jefferson so much that we have been coming for about 6 years. So very peaceful, love sitting on the porch.watching the hummingbirds and the owners are so accomodating and wonderful to deal with. Close to town and the parkway so hikes abound.

We had a great time at Secluded Hideaway, did not wan't to leave!! The kids loved it. It was secluded but close to town and easy drive to many attractions. The river was close with a beach that the kids tubed in and even caught some fish. The cabin was clean and well stocked with what we needed. The owners son Bobby was helpful and checked on us a time or 2. Bobby also rents tubes to use in the river so let him know when you get there if you need any. We will be back!!

Secluded Hideaway - Perfect Rest and Relaxation

  • 4 of 5

I loved my visit in the Secluded Hideaway. Everything was clean and setup when I arrived. The best part is the front/side/back porches. There are swings, rockers and gliders. If you want to just relax and enjoy the environment and deer then this is a dream spot. West Jefferson is such a lovely place with friendly folks. I loved it.

My sister and I had a wonderful vacation at the Secluded Hideaway with our children. It was beautiful and quite. We enjoyed the shops in West Jefferson and in Boone. My husband came up mid week and he and my son went golfing at the Mountian Aire golf course. They said it was beautiful. On Friday we took the whole day and went to Damascus, Virginia about 1 and 20 mins away. We rode the creeper trail. 17 mile low grade down hill bike trail. You rent the bikes right there in town at one of 6 or 7 places. The trail is mostly shaded and runs along a gorgeous river. Perfect for the novice rider and any age for 7 to 80. Thank you for a very memorable trip. We are already planning for next year.
