Walking up the sidewalk, viewing the front porch with swing and beautiful landscape surrounding it, I knew I was going to love this timeless place. Our hostess was welcoming and gracious and the stainless glass windows and amazing antiques just made me want to walk around and look. Our room was cute and clean and, although maybe a little small,...

With hotels getting slicker every day, it's especially refreshing to stay in a classy old Victorian home that's so beautifully and tastefully furnished. Secret Garden is one of the very best I've ever stayed in.

A beautiful home decorated in period antiques. Kathy welcomed us to her well maintained home & award winning gardens & graciously accomodated my fruit allergies and changed my breakfast accordingly - much appreciated. I was reuniting with a friend after 29 years so we really enjoyed chatting in the parlour together. Such a great location to catch up. Thank you...

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Secret Garden and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It's a beautiful house on an historic, quiet street, less than a mile on foot from the waterfront area and Princess Street. It's also close to Queens University and other points of interest, such as Bellevue House. Secret Garden does have a very nice...

The house is beautiful and there is a lovely porch to the front. Kathy was pleasant and welcoming and very organised! Our room (Serenity, on the top floor) was very nice, with an en suite bathroom - be careful in here, the ceiling slopes! The room was very quiet, we had chosen the top floor for this reason.

Not much to add to what has already been written by others...believe them. Great location, great house, great room, great breakfast. Kathy either really enjoys her work or is a fantastic actress. Secret Garden Room was ideal.
