Secluded behind high hedges, hidden pathways, and romantic gardens in Santa Barbara, 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. Pamper your body and refresh your spirit with our spa services, perhaps with a massage given by one of our licensed and certified massage therapists.
