Your Premier Hotel in Santa Barbara

Initially built in 1905, Secret Garden Inn and Cottages underwent renovations and reopened as the Blue Quail Inn in 1980. In 1999, Dominique Hannaux, hailing from Paris, became the third owner of the property. Each guest room or cottage is furnished and has a bath and shower. Five cottages feature private decks and hot tubs. Guests are treated to warm hospitality and delectable French cuisine in the dining room or beneath the branches of the persimmon tree on the patio.

Our commitment to excellence extends to every aspect of our service, from the lovingly furnished rooms to the delicious French cuisine we serve. With our dedication to creating a peaceful and memorable experience, we aim to exceed the expectations of every guest who walks through our doors. Immerse yourself in the calming beauty of our surroundings before taking a stroll downtown to discover the vibrant charm of Santa Barbara.


At Secret Garden Inn and Cottages, we aim to provide guests with a peaceful retreat to relax, rejuvenate, and create lasting memories. We strive to offer impeccable hospitality and thoughtfully curated accommodations, ensuring each guest feels welcomed and cherished.
