Learn about
Our Home.


Our century-old late Victorian mansion has just undergone a complete, multi-year restoration and renovation. We preserved the age-old details and introduced all of the modern conveniences. Our rooms and suites are spacious and exceptionally comfortable with beautiful ensuite bathrooms. We feature top-rated Saatva mattresses in every room to ensure your comfort and rest.

The mansion, furnished with period antiques, features a large library on the main floor and a game room on the second floor for comfortable conversation, entertaining, and relaxation. In season, the full wraparound porch invites relaxing reading or just watching the horse-drawn carriages pass by.

  • Marge and Benny Green, 50th VMI [reunion]

    We fully enjoyed being the first guests of the “Secret Garden!” We were grateful for the comfortable housing, excellent cuisine and visit time shared with the lovely Barraclough and Twede families. We look forward to returning for a future and memorable stay. A special “kudos” to Donna and Amber for their terrific teamwork and outstanding hospitality. Best wishes for great success and joy.

  • The Carroll’s & Willards

    Wonderful stay! Thanks for making our reunion weekend such a blast.

  • Frances and Mark Borwick

    What a lovely home you have shared with us. You made us feel so welcomed, and all your little touches from bottomless coffee to chocolate chip cookies were appreciated. All the best in your continued renovation—it’s a labor of love, and it shows in how well you have preserved your home’s historical details whilst modernizing it. We look forward to staying with you again for W&L ‘18 graduation!
