Akel, (Ms.) Deborah on Feb 10, 2014 said:

“Sunday, Feb 9 -- It was a cold night and I was feeling under the weather, but I came out anyway because a concert at the Mansion is not to be missed! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, from Terez, who checked my coat, to [the Black woman whose name I didn't get] who manned the snacks table, to Ted, who's always a joy to chat with about music. This was my second TC show at the Mansion, and as before, Tom was warm, humble, and approchable. It was fun to see that stately edifice rockin' with Deadheads in tie-dye!I'm a big fan of the Mansion, particularly as a music venue. I've been fortunate to have seen some great shows there, and I only wish there could be more. Thanks for another memorable evening.Deborah ? ”

“I brought a group of 14 to tour the Mansion for a birthday party activity. Our group loved the experience and everyone kept saying what a fun activity it was for everyone! We enjoyed checking out all of the pictures and tchotchkes and some of us even found books we couldn't leave without. I can't thank Eric enough for his help with our group. He helped make the event run smoothly and I appreciated that. Everyone in the Mansion was very nice to us and we had such a positive experience. Many thanks to all the staff! ? ”


Zelda Kleister on Feb 5, 2014 said:

Brunch guest on Feb 3, 2014 said:

“Second time at The Mansion with a different friend and she said this, " the ambiance perfect, food delicious and the hot chocolate sinful." This was also my first time trying the omlette bar and the chef who I believe is Parisian was a delight. Please tell him specifically "Votre nourriture ?tait d?licieuse et votre personnalit? agr?able." Another great time at the Mansion. We were there for almost three hours and enjoyed every minute. ? ”

Brunch guest on Feb 1, 2014 said:

“OMG!!!!!! This was SSSOOOO wonderful! The food was terrific and everything tasted as amazing as it looked! The ambiance of the place was beautiful. It was also fun at the same time. Women were allowed to wear some of the gorgeous hats that were available for sale and it made the brunch very festive. The service was excellent and we never had to ask for anything, it was always brought before we could ask. I had a great time and we will be back soon! Thanks for the great time. Kathy August ? ”


Seiden, (Mr.) Stanley on Jan 29, 2014 said:

“Really wonderful. The log cabin room is particularly incredible!We especially liked how each floor had its own flavor, a flavor that we felt even extended to all the rooms upon it. The House manages a remarkable balance of museum, gallery, and attic. We didn't pay for the brunch, but it looked very enticing. ? ”


guest on Jan 27, 2014 said:

“This was our second time staying at the mansion and it was a WONDERFUL experience! Ted and the staff are all very friendly and welcoming, the mansion itself is so fun and ecclectic, and the brunch was delicious! I routinely recommend the mansion to those that have not yet heard of it and I look forward to our next visit there! ? ”


Seiden, (Mr.) Stanley on Jan 27, 2014 said:

“I had no idea what to expect, and the house was lovely. The sense of exploration was strong, and all of us left very happy with our experience. ? ”

Robertson, Gwendolyn /Cdc on Jan 23, 2014 said:

“Arranging the event was made easy by event planner. Sally answered our every question and any problems we thought we had in planning, she settled them right away! We appreciate the wonderful service the staff provided us - They were friendly and polite! The food was amazing! I don't think any of us has ever eaten so much dessert in our lives, it wasn't too sweet it was just right! The exploring of rooms and the discoveries of the secret doors was a lot of fun! (We found only a fraction of the secret doors) - we are planning on coming back to explore some more! One of our staff members father from Europe has put the mansion on his list of future visits when he comes back! Everyone felt they have found a gem in Washington, D.C., and plan many visits to come in the future. ? ”


Brunch guest on Jan 23, 2014 said:

“A unique special experience that left one feeling that they belong to a time gone by; that could be relived with fun and a carefree spirit that warms one's soul. ? ”


Brunch guest on Jan 22, 2014 said:

“This was my first time at the Mansion brunch and everything was perfect. The service-friendly. The food ( in particular the sinfully delicious macaroni and cheese and yes they have it with bacon too) delightful. The ambiance was one of joy, good spirits, intrigue and fun. Brunch is my favorite meal and I highly recommend this place. ? ”

Kern Treasure Hunt Tour guest on Jan 21, 2014 said:

“It was an awesome time for us. Our family (2 adults and two children) thought the experience was cooky and super fun! Would definitely recommend the Mansion on O Street to those with an open mind and sense of adventure. Loved the place! ? ”


Leech, Leanna on Jan 20, 2014 said:

“This was by far the best year end event my company has ever put on. Everyone is still raving about how much fun we all had, the food, the deserts and the tour of the mansion! An incredible evening we are so appreciative for the hospitality and professionalism we were shown, it really helped make the experience amazing for our team. This is definitely going to be hard to beat :) Ms. Leonards is truly a unique, creative and inspiring woman for putting together such an amazing venue (great team as well)! Thank you for a spectacular evening. ? ”


Elisabeth Henifin on Jan 17, 2014 said:

“Thank you so much for helping me put on a very special dinner last night! It was a huge success and everyone, especially my sister, had such an incredible time! The food was spectacular - I mean absolutely and wonderfully delicious! I was very pleased with how it all turned out. Thank you for your attention to detail and your recommendations. I am certain you have found life-long supporters of the Mansion from within our party. Thank you again! ? ”


Owers Self-Guided Tour guest on Jan 16, 2014 said:

“Excellent experience, always fun treasure hunting! ? ”


Melva Jones on Jan 15, 2014 said:

“Thank you for the opportunity to give feedback. Overall, the event was top-notched, exceeded expectations and most importantly a good time. This was the first event for The Education Trust at the venue and here were our highlights: 1. The staff from pre-planning and especially onsite were highly patient, gracious and flexible with our ever-changing needs. 2. The food was AMAZING as promised. Some staff favorites included the chicken, as well as the delicious, diverse and nut/gluten friendly dessert extravaganza. The staff really enjoyed anything chocolate and the cheesecake. 3. The venue looked amazing ( yes, it always looked amazing) but as an organization that traditionally had this event in a private home -- the venue and how the staff interacted with us really replicated what we are use too. 4. The tour is worth every minute, every second. All of the staff (from adults to children) found it interesting, intriguing and quite honestly some of them started dinner later or ended it earlier to go back around for a second time. Anyone having an event here. Do the tour? Seriously. Take your time. The only constructive comment ( and this is minor ) is that on occasion some felt rushed through the buffet but that is probably because they wanted to take their time and grab more food. So what I can share with others considering this venue is this. Let them plan your event their way and it will all work out. It was worry free, delicious and pleasant. The Mansion on O Street made good on their promise and we will be back this year. Melva, Director of Meetings & Conferences, The Education Trust ps. A special thanks to every single person who worked our event. They were professional, fun, generous and kind. They were what one wants when receiving service.? ”

“a pleasant, restful and interesting experience - as always... ? ”


Cornwell, Barbara on Jan 13, 2014 said:

“Thank you so much for an absolutely lovely evening. The facility, staff, food were nothing short of amazing. Our attendees were very complimentary of the event. We plan on returning to the O Street mansion as a company as well as individually. I will absolutely recommend the O Street mansion for ANY occasion . H, it truly was a pleasure! Kind Regards, Barbara Cornwell OMNITEC Solutions, Inc. ? ”


Graham-Yooll Self-Guided Tour guest on Jan 13, 2014 said:

“Had SUCH a fun, adventurous experience at Mansion on O. We did the self-guided tour for our first time, but next time I will definitely do Brunch, Tea and Cakes, or Happy Hours, or maybe all of the above. Thanks! ? ”


Disciullo, (Mr.) James on Jan 12, 2014 said:

“Perfect "get-away" museum, with tons of things to reflect on plus the secret doors are a gas, gas, gas. Parking can be a challenge, so consider the valet parking. We went over Christmas break, with adult children and brother-in-law. We moved individually, but often met up to discover new rooms and things to see. Memorabilia to the hilt. We spent 2-3 hours and likely did not see everything. Would recommend to anyone visiting DC - a real gem. ? ”


Evans, (Prof.) Peter on Jan 10, 2014 said:

“I have lived in this area for over 50 years, but had never heard of your mansion before. The tour was certainly a lot of fun, and the whole idea of operation is definitely unique. My compliments to the staff!P. Evans ? ”


Strange, (Ms.) Lauren on Jan 9, 2014 said:

“We did the New Year's Treasure Hunt as part of a bachelorette day. We had so much fun exploring the house, trying to find the objects, and searching for the hidden doors. Our group stayed for 2.5 hours because we had to get to our next event, but we could have stayed a lot longer. We will definitely be back. ? ”


Happy Hours guest on Jan 8, 2014 said:

New Year's Eve Party guest on Jan 4, 2014 said:

“This was my first time at the Mansion on O and I loved the old style architecture and the layout of the rooms. The modern square and plain architectures can be so boring. Loved the little secret passage ways and the surprises. Some of the rooms were just amazing. Really enjoyed the NYE party. I am obsessed with the chandeliers, so a number of them lit in different colors really added a fun touch to the night for me. And the DJ was awesome, kept us in the great mood all evening. Thank you, Salome ? ”


August, Robert on Jan 4, 2014 said:

“It was AMAZING!!!! There was so much to see and to do. You have to keep your eyes open to see everything on the treasure hunt list. And everything is for sale! So if you see something you love---buy it because there are some wonderful and unique things! We plan to go back quite often because the exhibits change all the time! Kathy August ? ”

Hotop, Rebecca on Jan 1, 2014 said:

“This place is fun and quirky. Pleasantly surprised that it was not packed with people. I'm looking forward to visiting again for brunch. We just took the self-guided tour but it was a lot of fun to look for the secret doors. A great fun place to visit and not your usual Washington D.C. stuff. ? ”

Lopez Self-Guided Tour guest on Dec 29, 2013 said:

Shreve, (Mrs.) Jennifer on Dec 28, 2013 said:

Walton, (Mr.) Ian on Dec 27, 2013 said:

“Its been a tradition to visit the Mansion on Christmas Eve now going on 4 years or so - this was the first for our 6 week old! Staff really made our Christmas Eve dinner very special - especially for our 3 year old daughter who was showered in compliments by everyone on duty. She was on cloud nine and even found a nice teddy bear to take home. The food, egg nog, and desserts were the icing on the cake. We look forward to continuing this tradition for many, many years...thanks for making it such a nice way to bring our family together for food and fun. ? ”

“It was fantastic I loved it. The only thing i can say is I wish here were railings on the stair cases. ? ”


admin on Dec 10, 2013 said:

“Dear H, It's rare for me to sign on for something that I'm not sure what I'm getting into. And because, for me, entertaining is an extension of myself - it would be out of the question for me to sign on for something for which I don't have complete control. Nevertheless, my instinct was to trust that hosting my party at The Mansion would be a good move - and it definitely was. Obviously, everyone was blown away by The Mansion. And all of the other elements were terrific: food, presentation, etc. But I want to focus this email on your staff. They were extraordinary. Guests remarked about your staff, which is usually not something a guest would remark on. Individually and collectively they were super-friendly, welcoming, accommodating, professional and, well, just plain ole' nice. And who wouldn't fall in love with Andres? This took all the wonderful elements of the party up a few more notches. As the day wore on, we gradually (count my emails to you!) went from 60 to 43. And I was grateful so many friends traipsed downtown on the ice. Thank you for all the last minute accommodations (with the chair & table take-aways) for that. And e-mails and calls are already streaming in from my friends about the party. Everyone is raving about all the things a hostess wants them to rave about. Again- I thank you, Joyce ? ”


Walega, Kristin on Dec 10, 2013 said:

“Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed exploring the mansion. The Mansion staff was amazing through the whole planning process and during the event- very responsive and helpful. The food was delicious - the dessert bar was unbelievable! Thanks for making our holiday party memorable! I know many of our staff will be returning to explore. ? ”


Ward, (Mrs.) Eleni on Dec 9, 2013 said:

“The only way we can describe our event yesterday is "magical." EVERYONE had an amazing time, and the staff was unbelievable--they were there every minute for everything we needed, and always smiling. The food was delicious, incredible, magnificent and ENDLESS!! People can't stop talking about the experience. You are truly a miracle in DC and we hope that you will see us all again at different times during the year--I am so delighted to find you!!! Leni Ward ? ”


Leni Ward on Dec 8, 2013 said:

“I can't ever remember having attended any event in my life that I can't stop talking about. Please know how grateful we all are for the incredible experience (that's the only word that begins to do it justice) that you gave us today. In fact, you gave us all more than an experience, you gave us a memory to keep looking back on with happiness. My only regret is that the weather kept some of our group home (their loss), so they missed the wonderful food and people you all are at the Mansion. Besides the amazing food, the great work you do touches me deeply. I am so glad that you and the Mansion came into my life, and I will certainly be back with my family. I immediately called my son and daughter and talked on and on about the tapes Ted so kindly played for me. I seriously don't know how to stop talking about this but, in reality, I hope I never do. It was not only the whole experience, it was like we were all with family because you made everyone feel very special. We will cross paths again, and I hope it is just around the corner--thank you and Ted and your wonderful staff for having a piece of magic in the middle of D.C. Leni Ward ? ”


Laurel Angell on Dec 5, 2013 said:

“Hi H ? I just wanted to say that my staff and I had an amazing two days at the Mansion. Absolutely wonderful. They really got into the activities and I credit the Mansion, because it simply provided us with the perfect environment to break down some walls and come together as a team. I was so pleased with how engaged they were and I have to say Ted's raw and exposed session was really, really a hit with these guys. They were talking about it all day. Huge. Perfect. Thanks so much. Would like to figure out a way to give back to the place that gave us so much here, so will look for ways to do so. In the meantime, Here is the website as well that represents the public accountability arm of Western Energy Project: www.westernvaluesproject.org Best, Laurel ? ”

Happy Hours guest on Nov 26, 2013 said:

“The Mansion (which could probably also justfiably be called "The Museum" because of all the artifacts it has) is a really cool and unique place in DC. The maze of rooms was highly stimulating and entertaining. The numbers of rooms is pretty amazing. I wasn't at a loss for words as I discovered room after room. As a big music fan (especially of classic rock), I was very pleasantly surprised to discover this most impressive collection of classic rock paraphenila. I will make a strong recommendation to all my musician friends to visit. I particularly enjoyed the basement and some of the outrageous bathrooms (all over the house). The only signficant thing that I didn't like is that the cigarette smoke spread throughout the house. This place would be awesome for a private or company party. Absolutely no wait at the bar (perfect) and complementary munchies were nice touches.? ”


Rakestraw, Don on Nov 25, 2013 said:

“It was another fantastic experience having breakfast at the Mansion. My friends, who had never been there before, were totally impressed with everything and will definitely return for more. The food was great as always and the hospitality and personal touch makes one feel like they are with family. We all loved seeing the different rooms, the dcor and the secret doorways. It was a thrilling experience for all.Can't wait to come back.Warm regards,Don Rakestraw ? ”


Belf, Teri-E on Nov 25, 2013 said:

“Gosh because I always offer positive comments I racked my brain to find something, anything, that wasn't superb. I got it! My stomach was not large enough to eat all the luscious pastries and array of cheeses I would have liked.Oh well, I tried!Thank you Mansion on O.Teri-E ? ”


Lash, Jay on Nov 25, 2013 said:

“At first we were a bit taken back. As two people who live with a high-level of design esthetic and domestic integrity we usually don't enjoy "clutter" or a mixed decor. That said by the time our event began our whole attitude and appreciation changed dramatically. We started to see the trees through the forest and were enthralled. The art and the history hidden in every corner along the the stories told by the staff brought the Mansion alive. The event was handled flawlessly. The food and service, impeccable. The entertainment was at a level on par with the intimate venue this mansion had now become. Even in the morning we saw new treasures, heard new stories and met new and interesting people. Ted and H. were personas that added a whole other dimension to this day. We even had to purchase her books and a South American Cane that became part of my soul during the night. It was a fantastic experience. As we packed our bags and got into our car one of the fantastic staff helped us out and we told him we really enjoyed our time at the Mansion and looked forward to returning. He responded in sincerity, "We enjoyed having you and can't wait to see us come back". I think he meant it too. Thank you all. ”


Haq, Aassia on Nov 25, 2013 said:

“My husband and I enjoyed every minute of visiting the Mansion. It's in a beautiful location right off DuPont Circle, and Embassy Row. And, the quirky decor was quite different from anything we've seen before. It was a great experience. We'll be back. ? ”

“I had a wonderful time at my Association's event. I had never been to the Mansion and was amazed at the ingenuity of all the rooms, the uniqueness of the interior design and everything that was for sale! I would also like to send a special shout out to the young lady who was coordinating our event; she did an exceptional job at keeping the event organized and on track, getting all of our members fed in a timely manner and taking special care of each guest in attendance. Bravo to all of the Staff at The Mansion! ? ”

“We had a fabulous time. The mansion is so cool and we loved the search for items on the list. The show was outstanding. All the entertainers were great, but the first one was remarkable. Her comedic talent made the crowd bowl over with laughter and her singing and dancing made her shine. The comedy in the show was unlike all other shows I've seen. We will be back and we will bring friends. Thanks for a super evening! ? ”

Breakfast guest on Nov 6, 2013 said:

“I went with my (adult) niece to view the mansion for a corporate event and never expected to have such a great experience! The breakfast was tasty and although brand new to the Mansion, our waiter was as helpful as he could be; it's hard to be attentive without being intrusive but he did it very well. Our omelette was perfected cooked and the waffles (yes, plural - we shared and one simply wasn't enough!) were really good - especially when we paired it with the apples in brandy which was incredibly good. ? ”

“I have been coming here since 1993. Over these 20 years I have come for lunch, brunch, dinner with friend's and family. We had our daughter's Bat Mitzvah here, m y father's 70th birthday where 12 of us stayed over including dinner and brunch. I celebrated my 50th birthday here where we announced our engagement in 2008. And in 2011 when when our son got married we came with guests the day after the wedding. In 2018 I will be 60. No small thing since I have leukemia. I would think O Street will play a part in this special celebration year since it has in so m any of our families milestones. Thank you H for sharing your vision! ? ”

Mansion Member on Oct 20, 2013 said:

“This summer... I had a moment, while swimming in The Mansion's pool that I felt so much joy and privilege to be alive and in DC -- in your swimming pool. I thought about those who I longed to share that moment with and realized I was totally alone. So I took another gulp of air. Utterly embracing that in that moment life and what life really is meant to be had just revealed to me itself in vesica mandorla. Aqua blue, from a satellite view and comically juxtaposed between the bizarre and scientific, and then me. So I'm taking this moment to look back and thank The Mansion. For the path you've laid in flight by your own calling and grace of footsteps fallen. You build beautiful rooms, stairwells, bookshelves, collections and secret doors. Not to mention THE best kept swimming pool in Washington DC. Thank you dearly for having me. ? ”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on Oct 20, 2013 said:

“It was a hoot and a holler. 3 of us landed up at the Mansion for a Monday night HH, little did we anticipate the madness and adventure that followed. From the hunting loft to the cellar rooms, secrets and quirks abound and no better way to explore the enigma than with a couple of glasses of Cava to drink smoothly as you wander around this amazingly cavernous adventure zone! ? ”


Harris, (Ms.) Holly on Oct 14, 2013 said:

“Our wedding experience at the Mansion on O street was beyond anything we could even have dreamt. More than the outrageously wonderful accommodations, the food that everyone raved to us about, even the magnificent experience of the Mansion as a physical place, we remain stunned by the kindness, the gentleness, the expertise, and the professionalism of the people who truly ARE the Mansion.I wish I could put my words into an eloquent stream, but how often does anyone truly get to experience a perfect event? A PERFECT event! From start to finish, from check-in to wedded bliss, to dazzling reception, to haven that was our amazing personal retreat after the festivities, it was perfection.Every expectation was not only exceeded, but blown out of the water. I could not have imagined a day like the one that H and T gave us. Our family and friends will never forget this day, and we are similarly fixed by the magic we experienced there. It is not just a venue. It is not just an organization. The Mansion is an adventure - a fantasy made real.We are so thankful, so overwhelmed. Thank you H. Thank you T. You gave us the gift of starting a life together marked by wonderment. You made us feel so special, so chosen, so very lucky to know you and be able to live in your world for those beautiful moments. Trusting you and your wonderful team (we so appreciated Amanda and Sally and truly every person who participated in our event) was the best decision we ever could have made. Our gorgeous and delicious surprise pagoda wedding cake was but one proof of many that leaving it in your hands is a guarantor of success and happiness. I don't know how we will ever be able to show our appreciation, but we shall find a way. ? ”

Really enjoyed trying to find all the hidden places. We found quite a few but could have used some more hints. Each room had so many items to look at, many being antiques was just amazing. The Mansion is an unknown Washington treasure that is unique. It was a great way to spend 3-4 hours. ? ”

“This was one of the best family experiences we have had. My grandchildren, ages 5 and 15, thought it was great. My daughters, one who has been at several HIGH TEAS said that this surpassed everything she had been to. The boys want to bring their father back for brunch so we will certainly be back. Found thirteen doors, looking forward to finding more next time. By the way your service was wonderful and the young blond woman who greeted us and gave us some history on the Mansion was charming, warm and wonderful. She certainly is a great asset to your organization. Really enjoyed the afternoon and have told all my friends about this wonderful place. Thank you so much for a wonderful day. ? ”

Mustache Mondays guest on Oct 1, 2013 said:

“I went with my husband and a friend, and we absolutely loved the scavenger hunt. We'd been to the mansion before but the mustaches, drinks and free food made it even more fun. The scavenger hunt list was a bit easier this time around too, and we got most things on the list, although we were a little confused about whether we had to stick to one floor of the mansion. We explored every floor and found five secret doors, which made it feel like the most epic scavenger hunt ever. The staff was friendly, the drinks were good, and the mansion is an adventure. We'll definitely do it again! ? ”

I hope to return whenever I need a sanctuary or a peaceful writer's retreat.All love,Susan Burgerman (and Andrew Baxley) ? ”


Company Retreat on Sep 28, 2013 said:

“Excellent service. Everything was executed perfectly and exactly as I had requested. During the set-up phase, my emails were always answered immediately and Amanda was delightful to work with. The food was delicious and included even MORE choices than I had selected! During the course of the meeting, I did not have to take time away from the discussion to worry about event details. I felt our group had total privacy, but it seemed the staff was always aware if we needed another chair, more water, etc. I look forward to many successful events at The Mansion in the future and would certainly recommend the venue to friends and colleagues! ? ”

Self-Guided Tour Guest on Sep 24, 2013 said:

“Dear H & Ted, Michael and I visited your home (The words hotel or mansion does not relay the warmth and uniqueness of your space or you) this weekend and fell in love. Well, I must admit for Michael it was love at first sight and for me it took some time to see things through his eyes. Michael sees the world as it should be and I like being along for the ride for 33 years now. Your passion for what you do and more importantly, how you do it is special to be around. I read many reviews on line. The positive reviews were expected. The few negative reviews revealed far more about the author than your home. I was actually sad for those reviewers who did not "get" what the Mansion offers: freedom to explore your world, to learn something about ourselves, and to see things from a different perspective. While exploring with our daughter (visiting Ms. Park's room, the log cabin suite, viewing the most expensive treasures to the seemingly mundane) I was taken to places in my childhood both good and bad and shared wonderful memories with her. ? ”


Baskins, Roberta on Sep 24, 2013 said:

“Sometimes when one has an event there is the inevitable second guessing: wouldn't the food/the ambiance/the service/the vibe of another place possible have been better?? But NOT A BAT squeak of those thoughts occurred before, during or after the spectacular book party you hosted for me last Saturday. Everything looked so beautiful, the food was divine, everyone who worked the party was elegant, thoughtful, polite without being smarmy, and engaged in a way that felt beautifully personal. I could not have been more grateful for what you did. Thank you H, and Ted and one and all. ? ”

Namiot Penthouse Tour guest on Sep 3, 2013 said:

“We came to the Mansion as a suggestion of one of my former students. Not knowing what to expect, we booked a penthouse tour. My family and I stayed for hours! We were all enthralled - adults and children! My son was eager to see the next room and find the next door as fast as possible, while the rest of wanted to poke around and just look with wonder. One visit was not enough. It was our favorite part of our dc vacation! You asked what was my favorite room and I answered the wine cellar. In hindsight, that was a total fib. My favorite room was downstairs the room with comic books and games. That room felt the most comfortable to me. We are actually giving my sister a night at the Mansion as her christmas/birthday present. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonder place with us!! — ”


Hardin, Dave on Aug 29, 2013 said:

This museum is a gem, nothing like it anywhere else in the U.S. You have to experience it, to understand what it offers. Young and old will enjoy it. The items will delight.....the architecture will amaze....the enormity of the mansion will awe. AND --the secret doors and passageway will tickle your creative juices! My tween and teen daughters spent FIVE hours there on a scavenger hunt and we can't wait to return with friends. Just go. Don't even think about it. — ”

“So much fun! I have been wanting to visit for years, and I'm glad to finally go. I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt, discovering little things here and there--what a thrill to see some Highlander the series books and a pound puppy--two of my favorite things from the past and such unexpected finds. I loved the diversity of items, from showy to cheap to valuable to priceless. I went with my Harry Potter group and it was lovely to see some Harry Potter items hidden in different rooms. Directions to get to the museum from the Metro were perfect and so useful. Thank you for having those on your website. The only con I have to report is that we were unable to find that darn cowboy and that specific bear with the subtle eyes and white background. I swear we looked everywhere! So where were they hiding? This is going to keep me up at night! lol Thanks for the incredibly enjoyable afternoon. Certainly worth waiting for :-) — ”

“This is a fascinating gem in the middle of DC. I am here in the city for a summer internship, and this was a great addition to the rush of museums and monuments. It is different from anything else that I saw. Hunting for secret doors and looking through the (well-priced) antiques was fun. I brought along a friend who is from DC and she had never heard of it, so was skeptical at first, but ended up loving it. There's also a nice bar and there was live music in the main entrance. As a place to spend an hour or two and explore, it is well worth the trip. — ”

Treasure Hunt Guest on Jul 24, 2013 said:

“I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone at the O Mansion for a wonderful time on July 20, 2013. I helped a good friend of mine celebrate part of her bridal shower at the O Mansion with the Treasure Hunt. This day was very important to the bride and me. The bride had a very difficult childhood and as a teenager had many obstacles to overcome. As an adult, she has made great accomplishments and has found someone who makes her very happy to marry. I wanted this bridal shower to be a special day for her. As soon as we entered the O Mansion we were greeted with very warm, courteous and professional people. The best part was meeting the owner/founder of the O Mansion. Prior to meeting her, I read about her and the O Mansion. So it was an absolute pleasure meeting her. I loved the fact that she greeted us with a beautiful smile and took the time to explain to us about the O Mansion and the Treasure Hunt. The experience of the O Mansion was sensational! Seeing the different decor of the rooms and all the interesting, beautiful and nostalgic art work that were on the walls and in the rooms, sent my sensory into over drive. Once again, I just wanted to say, "Thank You" to everyone at the O Mansion who helped to make that day a very special day, for a very deserving special bride. — ”


Beatles guest on Jul 24, 2013 said:

“Our group had a great time at the Beatles celebration. Looking for items for the treasure hunt was fun, but ultimately we kept the treasure hunt form as a souvenir. The Beatles looked like they were ready to talk to us, and we took pictures with them. The snacks were perfect since we didn't have time for dinner before the event. We also enjoyed the concert. It was hard to take pictures with the Beatles, since everyone wanted to do it at the same time, but that is not a complaint. — ”


Beatles guest on Jul 23, 2013 said:

“As a post work destresser, this was exactly what I was looking for. Having never been to the mansion before, I thought I had fallen into my dream scenario when I walked through the doors. The staff at the entrance were really nice and the scavenger hunt was a great way to explore the little ins and outs of the hotel without feeling like you were walking through a museum, not that I imagine anyone could feel that way anyway. I was completely intrigued and amazed be the architecture and decor of the old mansion. I loved the music and will definitely be back again soon!!! — ”

Tea guest on Jul 22, 2013 said:

“My friend and I came to celebrate her birthday at your dessert tea. I was expecting a few tea sandwiches, scones and clotted cream...and instead we found a "groaning board" of lovely and tasty desserts. What a decadent delight! The staff was friendly, helpful and down-to-earth...a refreshing change from other venues for tea. And then we explored the house... It was like being transported back to the turn of the last century with the bay windows, sparkling chandeliers, lavish woodwork and seemingly endless rooms. I plan to come back and take another tour...just to find more secret doors...spend time looking more closely at all the treasures...and thinking of a time long gone. Thank you for a lovely Sunday afternoon in July! - A Victorian Lady at Heart — ”

Anderson 30th Bday guest on Jul 16, 2013 said:

“The Mansion on O Street is a premier party venue. The ambience alone is worth the trip! I celebrated my 30th birthday there and every detail was beyond beautiful. The decoration is out of a novel fit for 19th century fantasy meets 21st century pop culture. The chairs are decorative and the tables are lined with lace. Chandeliers adorn the ceiling and you feel like you are a part of Washington history kept away. The food was amazing. The London broil option just melts in your mouth. I also appreciated the chef?s care in the dish, to not serve until it was perfectly cooked. The dessert delicacies were so pretty, that I didn?t want to eat them. Visually they are stunning. I truly enjoyed my function. After hosting several parties from 5 star hotels to small party spaces, the Mansion on O Street would be in my top 3 places to have a celebration in Washington, DC. — ”


Buco, Margaret on Jul 16, 2013 said:

“In the words of my eight year old granddaughter, Maddie, this was an "Awesome" visit! I had never been to the Mansion, so both of us were entering with eyes wide open. Wow! It seemed that we were the only touring guests during the time we were there, and H, Tracy, and Ted really made us feel super special. Maddie took her Treasure Hunt list very seriously, enjoyed the "milk and cookies", chose a recommended book, asked questions, and went bananas trying to find the hidden doors. She was extremely proud to locate three of them (thanks to some hints from our hosts!). — ”


Social Tour guest on Jul 16, 2013 said:

Showstoppers Guest on Jul 11, 2013 said:

“When I came to your show on 6/13 I had a really, really difficult week. On Monday 6/10 of that week I had quit a job that wasn't going well. On Tuesday 6/11 it marked a very sad "anniversary" for me. My oldest son Christopher died 9 years ago from a terminal illness, he would have been 10. Tuesday marked 9 years since he died, and I was so very sad that week. When you lose a child it is the most heartbreaking thing in the entire world, your pain never goes away. His "angel day" is always a day filled with so much sadness. When I came to your show I did something I don't do often. I laughed! I smiled! Than I laughed and smiled again, and touring that big mansion was transformative for me! I became happy again. I knew it was ok to become happy again. And than I laughed and smiled some more. It truly was, one of the best nights of my life. Somehow it let me know that everything in life was ok. I am so grateful to your wonderful mansion for that. I would love to come back to brunch sometime and bring my husband and kids for my birthday next month (something a little calmer!) and have a chance to revisit the Mansion again. I am absolutely in love with O Mansion now. It taught me how to smile again. Please forward this on to your owner. I want her to know how much her wonderful mansion brings happiness to people's lives. — ”

The staff were great and added to our experience. We've put the Mansion on our — ”

Our daughter was diagnosed with this rare degenerative disease as a baby and raising money for research has been a top priority since her diagnosis. We know that is the only way to save her. Although it has been a very difficult road for our young daughter we are determined to stay focused and get to a cure. We are so deeply grateful to the O Mansion owners and staff for generously sponsoring and hosting our Mad Hatter event in this fantastic venue. — ”

“The O Mansion is unlike anything anyone can imagine. Friends visiting this past week from France and then Sweden asked to visit something "that tourists wouldn't know to visit in Washington." We knew just the place for them -- the Mansion on O Street. The geniality of the owners, Ted and H, and their willingness to sit down and chat about their 37 year project -- creating the Mansion from row houses -- sets the tone for the visit. As for the tour itself, Good Luck finding all the hidden doors! Ted pointed one out to us, and we still had difficulties figuring it out. Touring the house is definitely a puzzle, and really good fun! Definitely an experience not to be missed; truly unique. — ”

I'm glad that so many things from bygone eras have been preserved , and in such beautiful ways! I was inspired to go home , clean house, and turn the memorabilia that I can't bear to part with into a museum. ( Nothing wrong with keeping old stuff as long as it's kept clean and presentable.) And searching for hidden doors is so much fun! My next visit will be with a local friend ,who is architect, and our daughters, who are graduating from h.s. looking forward to it. Thank you for making it happen. — ”

You all managed to do that and it was the highlight of my night. I will definitely becoming back to check out all the hidden doors and explore the Mansion! — ”


Showstoppers guest on May 17, 2013 said:

Showstoppers guest on May 17, 2013 said:

“Thank the sweet baby Jesus for the Living Social offer that introduced me to the Showstoppers at the Mansion on O! My friends and I went to the show last evening and had a great time. The performers were excellent, the staff friendly, and the venue kitschy. My night at the Mansion was, hands down, the most fun I have had in D.C. in a while. And Annie Lennox with her riding crop? ME-OW! — ”


Ives, (Mrs.) Lindsay on May 16, 2013 said:

Our group of 4 had a blast searching through the rooms and exploring the many hidden passage ways. Your staff members were very polite as we searched and everyone we came upon greeted us warming. I will definitely recommend a visit to anyone in the area or visiting and I will be back on my next visit to DC. Thank you so much for the wonderful experience. — ”

We were honored by the attentive service, intrigued by the massively whimsical decor and treatments, and entertained by all of the festivities (live blue grass on one floor, fabulous hats and boas on another, so much to experience throughout!)...fantastic atmosphere made all the more fulfilling by the treasure hunt we embarked on after our meal (no matter what my fiance says, I won!). We also really enjoyed the opportunity to share our own creativity with the Mansion on the Treasure Hunt program. We left feeling so happy and with no idea what time it might be...Thank you again for a perfect day! — ”

There was plenty of space to walk around, visiting people at other tables, and there was always a hot pot of coffee on a table in the corner. I also loved that we were not rushed to eat or to get up to roam the Mansion or to leave, but rather encouraged to stay and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere. Thank you for helping to make Ben & Ashleigh and all of our guests feel so welcome. I love introducing new friends to the Mansion and look forward to my next visit. ”

H and Ted are so blessed with their dedication and hard work to keep the Mansion every bit as good if not better than it was when I had my first thrill of experiencing the Mansion about 15 years ago. ”


Ann Marie - Sunday Champagne Brunch Guest on Apr 15, 2013 said:

“We just got back from a most fabulous Sunday brunch, the food was fabulous but only matched by the staff who were just as excited and enthusiastic as we were to be there however there is one other person that made our travels through your amazing home even more memorable and his name was 'Don', he is a member. He lives in Vienna and loves Peter Max art, he took us through the mansion and showed us hidden doors and little wonderful things about each of the rooms, we even went through the kitchen to the wine cellar and it was all just amazing. Thanks again for a wonderful day, can't wait to come back. ”

“I thought everyone was great. Very enthusiastic and very engaging with the entire audience. Very good at being raunchy but not tasteless. I thought the Q&A about living as a transgender and about impersonating a female was also really interesting. The host was much nicer than I would have been when asked very personal questions about her individual journey to where she is now. ”


Showstoppers guest on Apr 10, 2013 said:

“I had the best time of my life. The back of my ears hurt so bad from laughing, smiling, singing and enjoying myself I will come back again and again.

Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

“Can't tell you how much fun we had at the show; from the searching of the secret doors and rooms throughout the mansion, the friendly staff, great food, and most of all the fantastic show the girls put on! Everyone was super friendly and sweet to talk with after the show! Great night out! ”


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

“My friends and I had a fabulous time! It was our first time visiting the mansion and we spent hours exploring the unique rooms, looking for the hidden doors (the wine cellar was amazing!) and admiring the unique trinkets spread throughout the home. The show was even more fabulous, with performances to classics that everyone could sing along to! The performers were great and very entertaining! Thanks so much for an incredible, fun-filled evening! ”

Next time I'm wearing flats so I can roam the entire place. Kudos to to the chef because the salads were excellent and the desserts that I had were quite tasty. The eggplant was probably the best I have ever had ... would love to get the recipe. Thank you for a delightful evening. I will be back. ”


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

“Monet Dupree was fabulous! She is a great entertainer and dancer. Her interactions with the audience were fantastic and kept the show lively. My favorite was Tina Turner. I think she would have made a great ending to the show. Dinner was good (especially the eggplant and the fava beans). All in all a great evening! ”


Suchocki Numerology Tour guest on Apr 6, 2013 said:

Martinson, (Mr.) John on Apr 4, 2013 said:

“Easter Brunch 2013 at The Mansion was outstanding! We are vegetarian and were very satisfied with the offering. The staff was professional without being stuffy. It felt like we were being served by family! Our kids (ages 10 and 12) had a ball on the treasure hunt and, admittedly, my wife and I too! Bravo!”


Self-Guided Tour guest on Apr 2, 2013 said:

Banick, (Mr.) David on Apr 1, 2013 said:

“The tour of the Mansion on O Street was really fun and interesting...a great way to spend about an hour-and-a-half on a Saturday afternoon. The rooms are completely over-the-top in decor, kitsch, and tchotch. There are many secret doors to try to find that will take you from one room to the next (we found only about a third of them). The complimentary glass of champagne is a nice touch and you can purchase additional ones for $5 each, if you can find your way back to the bar!”


Easter Brunch guest on Apr 1, 2013 said:

“My friends and I had the best time at the Showstoppers show! The evening started off with exploring the mansion, which is really interesting and very cool. Then, the Showstopper girls had us laughing and singing and dancing in our seats for the rest of the night. All the acts are so animated and fun, you can't help but have a great time.The only problem with the whole show is that I fell in love with a green sparkly dress that Erykah Badu/Tina Turner/Whitney Houston was wearing and I don't know where to get it for myself!Great job girls, LOVED the show.”

Social Tour guest on Mar 30, 2013 said:

“This was so much fun, who knew there was a log cabin housed in a row house in the middle of D.C.? The one thing I would have liked was a map/floor plan, but I guess that'd give away some of the fun of finding the hidden passageways. My friend and I found several. I'd recommend the Mansion to anyone, especially those who have already seen the major tourist spots and want to spend their day doing something completely different.”


Showstoppers guest on Mar 30, 2013 said:

“We had a wonderful time and think the mansion is fantatsic!!! We needed to take more time looking at all the antiques but did not get there soon enough to do this. A lot of your antiques look like they are from the art deco or modern age era. We will be back and maybe spend the night. Thanks for the great queen show they were all magnificent!”

Showstoppers guest on Mar 26, 2013 said:

“I love the Mansion itself. I've been there twice now and I saw rooms I didn't get to see the first time. It's always a different experience. The Drag Show was Fabulous! We went on a Monday night and it was the perfect way to start the week. Miss Monet is one of the best I've seen. I haven't laughed that much in a long time. I will definitely be back.”

Social Tour guest on Mar 22, 2013 said:

“We LOVED our visit! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the mansion was fascinating. I can't believe I have lived in DC for over 20 years and this was my first visit! We were there for about 2 hours and could have easily stayed longer. My 2 nieces were completely focused on finding as many secret doors as possible. We enjoyed the champagne and the fact that we were free to roam the mansion at our own pace. There were many items I want to buy, so I plan to go back soon with my husband to decide on a couple of prints/paintings.”

“Fabulous, funny and different than a usual night out. Will definitely be back again!”


Hales, (Ms.) Maude on Mar 18, 2013 said:

“I enjoyed myself much more than I expected. The offerings for the dessert tea were marvelous, and the mansion is so interesting. I look forward to bringing my daughter to explore the hidden doors.”


Social Tour guest on Mar 18, 2013 said:

“The visit was amazing...I never expected to see all that I saw and yet I missed probably 60-70% of all there was to see. I wished I had come about 2 hours earlier than the 2:00 PM reservation I did make to visit.”


Brunch guest on Mar 18, 2013 said:

“I was there on March 17th for a birthday brunch and the food was delicious! The staff truly has a personal touch that makes you feel very special. I ordered a special birthday key lime pie that was beautiful and tasted wonderful. I understand that the pastry chef is one of the top 10 in the country. I also ordered the 4 floor treasure hunt that is totally worth it! All four of us had fun trying to find the secret doors and other items on the list - the Mansion makes it's worth the search. Everything in the mansion is for sale so have fun trying to find that special something. Every room is different and many guest rooms that aren't booked are open so you can see the different themes in each room. We enjoyed it so much we are already planning a second visit.”

“i enjoy the eclectic nature of the surroundings at the mansion on o st. i also like its philosophy. what particularly resonated with me was during the tour, the person told me "normal is not the way we doing things around here." i would like to become a member because i think music and art deserve a much more prominent place in all of our lives. and corporate complacency needs to become less of a part of our lives. i think to be truly successful, a person needs a balance of close family, strong friends, personal integrity, and a smidgen or more of quirkiness. plus an appreciation for good food and drink.”

“Little Things that Mean a Lot My little man took a leap of faith in trusting me when I suggested a change of scenery might (always) be a good thing. He was locked into his world ... Rough scene for his early age over the past many years between his dad's struggles and Me leaving and his beloved cousin, dying ...amidst The Divorce and ... Wow... How does/can one so young and heartfelt deal ... And let's just add The Bullying to boot. But he anted up and said Yes to my request. Small Victories are The Hardest won, I think. And in this case The Most Important. He came to The Mansion with his fragile sense of self and yet he played along... Even though everything has been outside of his comfort zone for a good while now. And he won ....small victories but they all add up to So Much... He found secret doors he could open and found some seriously good people he could try to trust ... He came with me ...so fragilely...and now ...a few days later ...the bricks of self esteem are discernible ... I have had the incredible gift of Mansion Magic for a few years now ... If there is any one thing I want to hold onto in my life ... And to impart to my children... It's everything that you, H, have founded and that You and Ted further everyday ... The world you have created and maintain represents every ideal that is right and strong and true. Please share with Blake that he should know , what an incredible thing he just modeled for my son, just by being himself... And incredibly ... By having the generosity of spirit to just be cool with my kid. ... I could not ask for a better role model ... He has started to shine a bit again ... There is nothing more beautiful or precious to me than this ...he's got a bit of his spark back ... I am So Grateful <3”

“We had a wonderful visit. Lots to see. I wish we would have allowed more time. Two hours was not enough. If you're a Beatles fan lots of pictures to see throughout. Next time I'm going to try on all the hats and take pictures :)My husband will spend more time looking through books.Best regards, Marge Stearns”

Social Tour guest on Mar 12, 2013 said:

“We had a great time although we wish some of the guitars were for sale!! Loved the wooden tubs and music themed bathroom pieces (aka toilet seat covers). I just learned of your concert series and will definitely be back for one of those. And I may just have to celebrate my 39th birthday in your hidden wine room!”


Derricks Self-Guided Tour guest on Mar 12, 2013 said:

“Definitely an experience with a surprise around every corner! It was a little overwhelming all at once. I'll have to come back when I have more time, so that I can really take it all in. I LOVED the cabin room. It was very different from the rest of the spaces and it's second level was so unexpected.”

“The hosts were very nice. we were treated like we were celebrities! appreciated all the hospitality.Great Job!!”


Social Tour guest on Mar 12, 2013 said:

“I didn't know what to expect. It was awesome! Everyone was so nice and friendly. I'm sure we missed some of the rooms. We only found a handful of the secret doors because we were too busy trying to look at everything! I would love to come back sometime for tea. What a great place!”


Social Tour guest on Mar 11, 2013 said:

SRO: Hardin guest on Mar 7, 2013 said:

“The Dave Hardin Show was outstanding! My guest, a guitarist in his own right, and I enjoyed the music, warm vibe of the Mansion, and conversations with all of the amazing staff, and artists following the show. Dave's music is truly soulful and genuine, straight from the heart, and harmonies with his wife Lauran Hardin - angelic. ”


Illusions guest on Mar 7, 2013 said:

“Very entertaining experience: performers were great! Music, costumes, use of audience!!! Wonderful mansion! I bought 3 dishes that will be on display in my house soon.”


Tea guest on Mar 6, 2013 said:

“What a wonderful Sunday out with friends! We savored the tea and all of the delicious sweets, cheeses and fruit. Lots of creativity exhibited in each and every room. Thank you!”


Tevelin, (Mrs.) Sandy on Mar 5, 2013 said:

“I loved being able to introduce the Mansion to two of my friends. Now they are fans, as well. Their favorite was the wine cellar. I love all of the rooms, but my favorite is still the ones devoted to The Beatles. I still have trouble finding more than one of the hidden doors. Perhaps my next visit will be to concentrate on that instead of looking at all of the items on display. :)”


La Cunza, Carmela on Mar 4, 2013 said:

“Amazing, unique and fun! My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience. We found 5 secret doors, and we're planning to come back to find them all. Get comfortable shoes on, lots of walking to do (and stairwells) . The staff was friendly and helpful.”


Tea guest on Mar 4, 2013 said:

“My friend introduced me to tea at the Mansion, so I took her there as a last girls' outing before she moves to CA. We had a wonderful time - we enjoyed the dessert tea (loved the coco truffle tea!) and then walked around the mansion afterwards. The service was friendly and efficient, the buffet had some lovely cakes and fresh fruit, and they even brought around a delicious gluten-free mousse cake for my gluten-intolerant friend. All in all, it was a really nice afternoon and I plan on bringing other friends to the Mansion. Thank you for a giving us a really nice way to celebrate our friendship!”


Breakfast guest on Mar 4, 2013 said:

“A delightful experience, a warm welcome, genuinely caring service and a great breakfast. After the scrumptious feast, I was encouraged to wander around the Mansion .... another feast, this time for the eyes! a real adventure! and music everywhere! I thoroughly enjoyed the visit, and shall do this again and again. Thank you for the fun time.”


Social Tour guest on Mar 3, 2013 said:

“The Mansion was really interesting and fun. The rooms were all very different and most had something that would excite someone in our group. We liked the signed guitars the best, especially the one signed by Janis Joplin and The Traveling Willburys. Definitely worth checking out!”


Fields, (Mr.) Tom on Mar 3, 2013 said:

“It was only my second visit--and the first for my friend. We are both VERY impressed by the collections, art, decor, music memorabilia, and the people who keep up the Mansion. It's one of DC's little-known gems.”


Social Tour guest on Mar 3, 2013 said:

“We loved it! We loved having free range to the mansion. Our favorite room was the wine cellar. We would love to come back and discover more secret passages! I think we only found six and we've been told that there are 60+ secret rooms/passages!”


Harris, (Mrs.) Lori on Mar 1, 2013 said:

“My husband and I had a great time at the Mansion. Loved wondering around and finding all the secret places! The staff is amazing and the service was wonderful. The Mansion on O is our new favorite place!!”


Showstoppers guest on Mar 1, 2013 said:

“The mansion was exciting to walk through; need to allow at least 2hrs to really walk through each room and take the time to see everything. Salad/dessert bar had unique items, not your typical selection of just lettuce and toppings. Great show; lots of personalities and fun audience participation!”


Cheston, (Ms.) Michelle on Feb 28, 2013 said:

“We went for the drag show and LOVED it! It was a LOT of fun, and we are no strangers to the drag experience. We also arrived early to tour the mansion and hunt for the secret passageways. We were impressed with ourselves when we located six of these doors, but got a bit deflated later when we learned there were more than 30 of them to discover. This only means we will have to come back! Highlights: The log cabin suite is crazy cool, and we almost didn't want to leave the cozy wine cellar. Thanks for a fun-filled Monday night!”

Given we were also married at this jewel of a place, it truly brings home the specialness the Mansion brings to all of us incurable romantics.”

SRO: Constanten guest on Feb 12, 2013 said:

“We had a very nice time at O Street Mansion Sunday, Feb 10. We enjoyed the treasure hunt because it "forced" us to wander the many, many rooms and floors, and we especially enjoyed the concert with Tom Constanten, John Kadlecik and Djesben. All the staff we encountered were gracious and helpful, and were rather tolerant of the type of event that night. Very nice! I'd love to do it again! ”


Laura Smith on Feb 12, 2013 said:
