Sunset at Secret Place

Nature's Harmonious Evening

The serene journey to The Secret Place unveiled a harmony of nature's wonders. Ascending Chalybeate Mountain was a tranquil adventure, setting the tone for a captivating evening. The panoramic view of the Coosa River valley at sunset was awe-inspiring. Pairing this experience with dinner at Arrington made the evening a complete symphony of flavors and scenic beauty.


Epic Sunset Escape

The shuttle ride up to Chalybeate Mountain was an adventure in itself! The bumps on the dirt road were worth the surprise that awaited! It has been a while since I have seen such an amazing sunset...


Nothing compares to this kind of romance

The view over the valley was captivating. The surprise snack, wine, coupled with the evening's tranquility, made for an entirely romantic experience. Dinner at Arrington afterward was a fitting conclusion to such an memorable evening

Just beautiful

We added this little excursion at the last minute and before our dinner reservation. I ma so glad the we did! Pursell Farms has carved out something magical with that location on the mountain top.


Did that just happen?

When we arrived at "The Secret Place" (now I know why it is called that) the sky was cloudy but it looked like it might break apart and right on cue, the sun poked out just as it was dropping below the horizon. We sipped wine and just enjoyed the magic hour. Stunning!
