About Us

Welcome to Secret Garden Cottages:  Our names are Bobby and Sheila McMichael.  Bobby is a professional commercial carpenter, and I am a nurse.  We love to travel and enjoy staying in out of the way inns and B/B's.  We had the opportunity to purchase the cottages in October 2008 and haven't looked back.  We have enjoyed meeting people from all over the United States and Japan.  While we are the owners, we are also the housekeepers, ground keepers, desk clerk and hostess, and take all reservations.  We take pride in our facility and enjoy meeting every client from mom and dad down to the kids.   We have a clean and healthy environment for your family to enjoy.  While we do not live on the grounds, we live 5 minutes away.  This allows you full privacy and a quick response if we are needed.  Below is a brief summary of the cottages and surrounding area.  Come see us, you will have a good time.

The mountains, trees, water, wildlife and pure serenity surround the cottages in natural beauty. Once you open the gate to the cottages you are welcomed with mature trees, flowering plants, annual plants for brilliant color, large water features for those relaxing sounds of rippling water. Fire pits to enjoy that crackle and smell of a warm fire. A large three tier, partially covered deck complete with a lounge area, and two dining areas to enjoy relaxed conversation or alfresco dinning. Mood lighting completes the relaxing atmosphere. The entire property is surrounded in a 8 foot privacy fence that separates you from the outside world. Serenity, relaxation and pure comfort await you and your family. Amenities of the outdoor space makes the courtyard a relaxing and enjoyable setting all year round.

All of our cottages are well appointed with plush linens, soft thick towels, comfy decor, utensils, dishes, and free coffee, cream and sugar in each cottage, everything you will need to have a hassle free vacation. There are 2 charcoal grills and 2 fire pits on the grounds to assist with your dinning experience, if that is to be steak or roasted hot dogs, or the favorite dessert, s'mores, cooked on the open fire its all right here.


WHAT OTHERS HAVE TO SAY:  We have journals in each room for our guest to leave us a note of their experience.  Below is a sampling of comments left for us.  We are very fortunate to have several repeat customers, especially since we have only owned the cottages since 10/2008.
