Secluded behind high hedges, hidden pathways and romantic gardens, lies the Secret Garden Inn and Cottages. Originally built for a large family in 1905, then renovated and opened as the Blue Quail in 1980, it is now owned and run by Dominique Hannaux. Many fine restaurants, shops and sights of beautiful Santa Barbara are just a short stroll or a quick bike ride from the Inn.
Enjoy Santa Barbara's Mediterranean climate while indulging in a leisurely breakfast in bed, in the privacy of your Garden Patio or beneath the lacey intertwined branches of the persimmon and avocado tree.
Enjoy the delicious Buffet Breakfast in our county kitchen which includes: Dominique's French recipe quiches, fresh baked scones, muffins, sweet breads, special fruit dishes, coffee, hot tea, and juices.
Step into the quiet and relaxing atmosphere of the Secret Garden Inn and Cottages. Stay in a main house guest room, a cottage room or suite, or our completely private cottage. Surrounded by the Inn's
gardens, all are romantic, peaceful and restful.
Secret Garden is Pet Friendly!

"I have been working with Samantha and she has made the process seemless and easy. Thanks for checking up. This was the first time using you for a block of rooms ~ what a great set-up you have! My days of calling individual hotels directly are over. I will be using and recommending your services again." M.R. - East Lansing, MI
