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.

Just a short distance from Santa Barbara’s most popular sights, the tranquility of the Secret Garden Inn and Cottages feels a world away. Each comfy room and cottage has its own appeal; some boast in-room fireplaces and private hot tubs.
