We stayed at "Secretariat's Secret" for our honeymoon and we couldn't have enoyed ourselves more. We loved the house, the secluded location, the hot tub.. honestly we loved it all. Having seen most of the tourist attractions previsouly (we love the mts), we spent most of our time relaxing, eating, and enjoying each others company. Places we recommend eating: murphys, the local, and the peddlin' pig. We also saw two movies at the local theater and on our final night we drove to Charlotte and watched the Hornets beat the 76ers. Overall, we couldn't be happier with our trip and each other. We loved our stay here and the staff at the management company were amazing!! Can't wait to come back!

We stayed for our 7th anniversary and had a wonderful time. The truth be told, we enjoyed this place so much that we only left to go to the grocery store. The great view, privacy, and all the amenities really makes it hard to leave. The full functional kitchen and hot tub is a great recipt for a romantic getaway. My advice is to head out to the nearest grocery store and then come back and enjoy the Secretariat because time flies too fast here.

We went to Boone to escape the Florida Summer Heat. Secretariat's Secret was the perfect getaway. Tucked in the woods high on a mountain with its own pond was only enhanced by temperatures in the mid 70's in the daytime and low 60's at night. We will definately stay here again!!

We thoroughly enjoyed a quick stay @ Secretariat's Secret. The home is lovely, peaceful, and just what we hoped for! The espresso machine was a nice surprise. We would definitely rent this home again.

Our family had such a great time at this cabin. This was a very last minute trip and the rental company pulled it off one more time. We've been renting from them for the past 5 - 6 years and never been disappointed! This cabin was just right for our family. We were hoping for snow, but unfortunately no snow LOL. Still we had a great time.

What a wonderful weekend of love, laughter, adventure, and relaxation for lifelong friends and new friends as well! This house was the setting for great conversation and memories to keep for a long time. This is a great place to enjoy the mountains any time of year.

“Very peaceful, private place. About 15 minutes away from restaurants and grocery stores. 30+ minutes to Artisanal. Beautiful Koi in the pond that you can feed. Very nice management company. ”

Thank you, we will definitely be back!

Property is secluded in the woods, while being a very short drive to Blowing Rock and downtown Boone. We had a great experience at this house.

Very easy to find, love the details put into the exterior and interior of the house! Crisp cool nights were a perfect time for the hot tub. Definitely recommend to those looking for an escape into the mountain side!

This is a lovely and spacious home. It had a well-equiped kitchen, a nice place to eat and play games. It had a wonderful deck with a hot tub that we all enjoyed. We were able to get Netflix so we could watch our favorite shows. I would Highly recommend this house.

The house was beautiful! I loved that they allowed our two dogs to come along (with a fee). The fireplace and hot tub were extra perks that us Florida people don't usually get to enjoy. The booking, checking in and out were so easy.

Awesome place and great communication! Will definitely try to book again next year!

Excellent location. My teenage daughters loved the hot tub. I loved the indoor fireplace. The kitchen had all the tools you would need.

Nice place. We enjoyed it.

If your looking for a great place, close to amenities, close to skiing or some R&R, this place is perfect! Our family of 6 and our two small dogs felt very at home and would definitely be back!

Awesome Coy fish pond in the back yard near the fire pit, the fish come right up to you ! Also good a place to stay if your going to Sugar Mtn because it's a short drive there , maybe 20 mins or so. And Linville falls if you wanna go for a hike is about 15 mins away. Hot tub was a great addition to this place to warm up after some snowboarding and skiing in the cold. Enjoyable view of the nature and close to the town as well. Overall great location , I definitely recommend this place if your wanting to hit the slopes and do some hiking as well or just walk around the town.

Our stay was incredible. Much better than I expected (and based on the photos, I was expecting it to be great!). The cabin is big enough to fit a group comfortably but also feels cozy, and the views are amazing. Checking in and out was a breeze, and the fire pit area and koi pond were like magic. I'd go back every weekend if I could. Hosts were super responsive. I have no critiques.
