There’s a Secret Library That Opens Up When You Pull a Special Book in This Hotel Room

How do you like our secret room? from r/secretcompartments

If you visit the “100 Years of Hollywood” room at the Bella Vista Bed and Breakfast in Coloma Lotus, California, you'll find that there's something extra as part of your stay. The homey accommodation is equipped with a hidden quarter that you can only access by opening a special book on the bookshelf and pulling it open from there. Marc Bächtold, a content creator for tourism and hospitality, revealed the room's secret while staying there as a guest. His video makes it look every bit as charming as it sounds.

This well-appointed accommodation is comfortable sans the secret room, but its addition adds cozy whimsy to a getaway. While the main room is inspired by old Hollywood, the extra space has a different vibe. “The hidden room is a two-story library with a winged back chair, large picture window, and art gallery wall,” Bächtold explains to My Modern Met. Together, the rooms offer striking views of the South Fork American River and the hotel grounds, which feature ponds, streams, waterfalls, and more.
