This set-up requires complex settings.
I suggest you see 7tutorials.com titled:

I just wanted to make sure that was what you meant.

Create a folder with a name followed by the dollar ($) symbol (e.g. Hidden$  Secret$).  Then share that folder in System Preferences --> Sharing as an SMB share.  When you connect to your system without explicitly naming the share, it will not appear in the list of available shares.  On Windows these C$ shares are explicitly included when you allow Administrative shares, but you could turn that off and share them with different names such as My_Boot_Disk$ for C:\.  You have always been able to create your own "hidden" share manually by adding a $ after any share name.  Like all "hidden" items, there are ways to enumerate them and discover them, but it will be hidden to the average user.

Suppose you shared the following folders on your MAC
public
Documents
Hidden$
Secret$


When you connect to
smb://MAC/
it will open a dialog box that shows only the first 2 shares.

public
Documents


You'll be able to connect to your hidden folder when you explicitly name them during connection time
smb://MAC/Hidden$.
