About

The Secret Garden is one of Santa Barbara's oldest inns, formerly called the Blue Quail. The inn consists of a main house and four cottages set in a lush jasmine, Jacaranda and camellia filled garden. The intertwined branches of the Persimmon, Avocado and Pecan trees combined with the high hedges and private lawns add to the secrecy of the garden while Hummingbirds, blue jays and trickle of fountains add peace and tranquillity. All eleven rooms have private bathrooms and four of the suites have a private outdoor Hot Tub.

Cute Yellow House

3.8 on July 07, 2014

My friends and I went to SB for a girls getaway over Summer Solstice. The Yellow House at Secret Garden Inn and Cottages was the perfect place for us. It was private, comfy, and clean. We enjoyed the breakfasts, wine & cheese, and brownies... Yum!


Cozy place with nice character.

Enjoyed our three night stay for graduation weekend. The owner and staff were friendly and the room was clean. The evening wine and cheese, and the breakfast were nice.


What a wonderful Garden stay

4.6 on June 29, 2014

Over the last four years with my daughter attending UCSB, I have stayed at many hotels. In trying to reduce the costs I looked at B &B's. We had a wonderful time and even had our own private hot tub! We could walk downtown and did not have to drive, great place!


Charming B&B

4.6 on June 29, 2014

If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the place to stay. We had an outside cottage room with a hot tub and wished we had booked more days here. The Secret Garden Inn and Cottages is quaint and charming with flowers blooming in the courtyard, good food and good service. We will be returning.


Lovely B & B

4.0 on June 19, 2014

Pleasant room, friendly staff, excellent food. The grounds are gorgeous, and being able to eat in the gardens was very nice. Wine and cheese in the evenings, dessert at night, with coffee and tea available throughout the day, made for a delicious stay. Breakfast was hot and delicious, and the homemade scones were fabulous. Would definitely recommend. Oh, and parking!
