“I want to thank you again for hosting our group's Christmas dinner party. It was wonderful! The Mansion is quite enchanting and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves exploring the many rooms and secret doors until our delicious dinner was served. It was so much fun trying on hats and taking pictures in the very special vignettes. Our dinner was a wonderful upgrade from our original selection to sea bass, scallops and beef tenderloin. It was a delightful menu selection that we were told the chef created for our party. Quite a nice surprise! Because I live in Chicago, I took advantage a few days later and brought my family and their friends along for the adventure. What a pleasure the concert was! I will remember the Mansion in the future if I ever have an opportunity to host a party in (but not really in) Washington, DC. ”

“I have enjoyed many visits to the Mansion and each time I discover something new and wonderful. This time, H. sent me to the wine room, which was just marvelous--I hope to have dinner in there on some special occasion.”

I've enjoyed every visit to the Mansion and can't wait til my next occasion there.Thank you for running such a wonderful place!”

“It was an absolute pleasure to have our event at the Mansion on O Street. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful, and they made our event go smoothly. It was also a real treat to meet H and have her start our treasure hunt for us. The Mansion itself is amazing and I could spend hours in there exploring (and I plan on coming back to do so!). Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. Everything from start to finish was great. Our team has a dinner every year and this was the best year yet thanks to everyone at the Mansion! In summary: delicious food, friendly staff, wonderful environment.Thank you!”

Xmas Eve Dinner guest on Dec 27, 2012 said:

“Since my daughter had limited time off this year, we spent the holidays in DC. Looking for ideas, I stumbled upon Christmas Eve at the Mansion online. We had a great time exploring the mansion -- so many nooks and crannies, we're sure we've only scratched the surface, and to think that we could actually stay in one of the rooms! The food was delicious! Can't wait to visit again!”

Am also considering taking my sister to stay the night in the Lennon Room- absolutely fabulous, I couldn't get enough of the magmatic energy there, could spend the rest of my life there. Thank you, your time and energy are greatly appreciated and valued. Thank you.”


Ian Walton - X-Mas Eve Dinner Guest on Dec 27, 2012 said:

“Always a treat... lots of fun. Food and desserts were excellent!”


X-Mas Eve Dinner Guest on Dec 27, 2012 said:

Dec Tea guest on Dec 26, 2012 said:

“The tea at O Mansion was a wedding gift to us -- such a unique idea! It was a grey, chilly afternoon, and the Mansion was the perfect place to have tea and experience the delights of the maze of rooms. The cakes were lovely -- yummy tiramisu.”


Loerch, (Mrs.) Kay - X-Mas Day Dessert Tea on Dec 26, 2012 said:

“It was a wonderful addition to a beautiful Christmas day. The desserts were beautiful, delicious and bountiful. The setting was magical. We loved exploring the mansion...the hats...the "stuff" ....the art...the decor...and labyrinth of rooms, halls and hidden doors. To appreciate it fully we need to return again...and again...and just one more time. Thank you! he mansion...the hats...the”

“Good ambience...different experience”


Joe Dickey - Dec. Sunday Lunch Guest on Dec 25, 2012 said:

Quinn, (Mrs.) Brandy - Showstoppers Guest on Dec 24, 2012 said:

Chris Engler, Tuxedo & Burlesque Guest on Dec 24, 2012 said:

Sunday Lunch Guest on Dec 24, 2012 said:

“What a fun place! And what a fine time. Loved all the decorations, the items for sale, the artwork, and the food. The lamb was especially good. It was such fun just to walk through the mansion and try to take in as much as possible. It will take several more visits to feel as though I've done the place justice. Loved the embellished guitars. What wonderful works of art. The Mansion on O Street is a well-kept secret, but now I've told several friends about it, and I look forward to returning.”


Mary Mateer - High Tea Guest on Dec 24, 2012 said:

“We had a wonderful high tea at the Mansion! It was our first visit and certainly won't be our last. Our "butler", Leslie, was terrific, not only serving us the delicious goodies, but serving up fun and interesting tidbits about the Mansion as well. We had a delightful holiday experience.”

Kathy Millier - Sunday Brunch Guest on Dec 24, 2012 said:

“My friend and I went to brunch at the Mansion on O street today. It was fabulous. The food was magnificent with offerings such as beef tenderloin with horseradish sauce, roasted leg of lamb, sea bass and made-to-order omelets and all the sides you could want. The service was attentive refilling glasses and clearing plates just in time all the time. Beyond the amazing food, the wonderful environment and the fascinating self guided tour of this fascinating mansion was out of this world. This is a "must" outing in Washington, DC.”


Marriott, (Ms.) Tamara on Dec 22, 2012 said:

“The mansion was more then what I expected. There are so many rooms to explore. A lot of rooms had guests so didn't get a chance to explore all the rooms. I think I only found 5 secret doors so there is still so much more to return for. My favorite room was the wine cellar. I sat in there for about 30 minutes thinking of all the great parties that could be had in there.”


Melissa - National Multi Housing Council Private Party on Dec 21, 2012 said:

“Our event was a great success and exceeded all of our expectations. The food was amazing (everyone loved the chateaubriand in particular), the staff so nice and it was the perfect atmosphere. Our guests had a great time touring the mansion! Everyone enjoyed the party. Thank you for your help coordinating!”


Joanne Fiorilli on Dec 21, 2012 said:

“Thank you so so much for helping to make our office party such a success. Everyone loved the Mansion, the food was wonderful, and the service and attentiveness of Antonio and our bartender was above and beyond. I realize that you went out of your way to give us a package that was affordable enough to make tonight possible, and I cannot express how much I appreciated that, as it made it possible for me to introduce people to your place, which is just magical. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and thank you again to you and your superb staff.”


Brett - Hotel Lobbyists Event on Dec 19, 2012 said:

“The venue has a wow factor that's unrivaled in the area. There are more glamorous places and there are grander places, but there's no place that inspires quite the unique blend of awe, intrigue, and warmth.”


Tina - NACWA Holiday Party on Dec 18, 2012 said:

“Thank you so much for all your help during our Holiday Party. Everyone really enjoyed it, and it was great working with you. The onsite staff was a pleasure to work with and accommodating with our last minute add-on. Thanks again for all of your help!”


Zemphria Baskin - December Tea Guest on Dec 18, 2012 said:

“Enjoyable experience, Dessert Tea for six (3 mothers and 3 daughters). A unique adventure exploring the mansion after an impressive dessert buffet with incredibile pastries, cheeses & fruit. We never did find all the secret doors! Would recommend it for any special occasion.”

Roy Beaumont - Marriott on Dec 10, 2012 said:

I appreciate all the special 'favors' to make it a unique event within my budget and look forward to seeing you again in the very near future.”

Williams, (Mr.) David on Nov 27, 2012 said:

“We had a great time. The food was wonderful and the treasure hunt was a blast for my girls, my husband and me. The buffet room was a little crowded but I guess that is the price you pay for having 50 (or something like that) dessert options.”


Showstoppers guest on Nov 27, 2012 said:

“Excellent time at the show last night. The ladies were wildly entertaining and we had a great time!”


Showstoppers guest on Nov 27, 2012 said:

guest on Nov 19, 2012 said:

“The mansion is gorgeous..my room was extremely clean and had some amazing memories..the books are an added bonus of intelligence that is seen throughout the whole mansion. My room was behind a mirror and hidden..the amnesia room is filled with guitars signed by rock stars, and the whole house has something for everybody. Their sunday brunch is wonderfully done and will return for that indefinetly! ”


Bebee Treasure Hunt Tour guest on Nov 19, 2012 said:

“The treasure hunt was amazingly fun.”


Kearney, (Ms.) Emmalee on Nov 19, 2012 said:

“I love the Mansion because it feels so private and low-key. It is in the heart of the city, but so many are oblivious to its existence (to my delight but disappointment?).Breakfast was lovely. It always is. Thank you.Emmalee”


Esperanza Spalding — Hotel Guest on Nov 19, 2012 said:

“Dear O Mansion Family! Thank you SO very much for the blessing of a fortnight in your magical mystical museum! Warmly, Esperanza”


Branch, (Ms.) Pamela on Nov 17, 2012 said:

“We had a great time. Most unusual thing I have ever experienced. There was so much to see. At first I didn't realize that every room was functional and people actually stay in these suites. The rooms were amazing. You could wonder about all day and probably still miss something. Everyone was very friendly. I think I need to enjoy the experience again so I can give more time to each room. I didn't realize each room had a theme until the end of my day. So I think I would like to know what room I am approaching and its theme. It was so exciting. Its like you are in a maze. Great idea.”


Wenczkowski, (Ms.) Melissa on Nov 16, 2012 said:

“I had a great visit. This was my second time at the Mansion. My first for the Showstoppers. Definitely not my last. I will be back. What a wonderful time.”

Holly H. - Bride To Be on Nov 15, 2012 said:

“It does my heart good to read what you've written about your own vision and mandate- and these words rang equally true when we met H and T at the Mansion last saturday. When I think about where life will take me, I know that it must be to places where I can help others in some way- where I can repay the debt of gratitude I feel toward the many kind souls who helped me make it through the tough times. My fiance, Michael and I SO want to make it official by getting married at the O Street Mansion, having a ridiculously wonderful time celebrating our love and the people we think are fabulous in our lives, and then hiding away together behind a secret door :)”


Astrid Garcia — Mexican Art Exhibit Opening on Nov 15, 2012 said:

“The exposition is great and the Mansion is AMAZING! I love it!”


Mike Buchner and Carmen Richardson — Hotel Guests on Nov 13, 2012 said:

“Dear Ted and H, Just wanted to send a quick note to say that Carmen and I had the most enjoyable time at the Mansion this weekend. The property was absolutely fantastic and we loved hearing all of the great stories about the mansion and its guests. But most of all, we really enjoyed meeting both of you. By the time we left, we felt we had made some great new friends and very much look forward to coming back and getting to know you both even better. Thank you for the wonderful hospitality and personal attention. We definitely look forward to coming back soon! All our best, Mike Buchner and Carmen Richardson”

“Great show and loved the salad bar!!!!”


Tuxedo and Burlesque guest on Nov 7, 2012 said:

“Very fun. I loved the endless supply of rooms”


Happy Hours guest on Nov 6, 2012 said:

“There simply is no atmosphere quite like the mansion; a veritable coral reef for people. What the vodka martinis lacked in traditional (male) simplicity, they certainly made up for in pure octane. ”


Breakfast guest on Nov 5, 2012 said:

“We had a blast! The food was delicious and the surroundings were unique. It was fun to be a kid again.”

“I had a great time. The staff were all friendly and helpful. The show was so much fun. The Jack-O-Lantern martini was fabulous and worth the price. I am looking forward to coming back and exploring the mansion since I did not have a chance to do that on this visit.”


Anderson Self-Guided Tour guest on Nov 2, 2012 said:

“It was so much fun! I went with my boyfriend and we found about 10 doors. I do think it's a little lame that there are some doors that are secret, but that you can't go through.Thanks again for the fun, i'm sure we'll be back.”


Wedding Photographer - Private Wedding on Oct 31, 2012 said:

“I can confidently say it was the best wedding I shot in 24 years.”


Belf, Teri-E on Oct 29, 2012 said:

“I brought 2 friends from Spain as guests and I am so glad I did. As a frequent guest of the Mansion I realized I had begun to experience some 'home blindness'. Seeing and hearing the experience of two newcomers re-opened me to my wondrous child in a magical, inSPIRITational playground of luxury and care AND the best chocolate cake on the planet.Thank you H, Ted and Mansion staff.Teri-E BElf”

Tea guest on Oct 26, 2012 said:

“The desserts were abundant and absolutely divine. The tea was fantastic as well and the atmosphere felt like something out of Alice in Wonderland. The log cabin room was very cool and my friend and I also enjoyed the pool table room. We had fun playing tunes on the jukebox. Definitely a great place for a special occasion and the house was so much fun to explore. ”


Haight, Emily on Oct 25, 2012 said:

“The evening at the mansion was fantastic. So much to do and the drag show was fabulous. Definitely going back.”


Breakfast guest on Oct 23, 2012 said:

“A friend and I had been to the Mansion before and wanted to "introduce" some other friends to it because we thought it was so unique and wonderful. I can't believe I had never been there before this year. It's a hidden DC gem. The 7 other people who came to brunch were blown away by the Mansion. It's just extraordinary and I can't wait to go back. The buffet breakfast was plentiful with so many options you couldn't try everything without having to be carried out of there! The tables were spaced far enough apart and the room quiet enough to allow spirited conversation. And it was so much fun to look around after we ate--I can't wait to go back.”

“The 8 of us had a great time at the mansion! The divas were fabulous and sweet and my sister in laws mother had a ball! She's never seen anything like the diva shows but she let loose and loved it. She asked when we were coming back to mansion O. Thanks for having a great show enjoyed by women of all ages.”


Dr. Freddie Cross - Showstoppers Show on Sep 14, 2012 said:

“The entire experience was fabulous! We went on the treasure hunt and I'm glad we did. It encouraged us to focus more than we otherwise would have on all the oddiies that are in the house. We only found abound three or four of the secret doors but we did rather well on finding the treasure hunt items. The guest rooms were amazing especially the bathrooms. I'm going to come back and stay one night and do the treasure hunt again so I can find the elusive items we missed! The drag show was beyond my expectations. I had never been to one and will definitely go another. The staff was top notch. Everyone was intent on making sure the guests had a great time. I'm sorry the evening ended and I can't wait to go back.”

“My mom and I loved the show but she said "it was worth the ticket just to come in and see the house". There were plenty of giggles and gasps every time we rounded a corner and found ourselves in a new room. The show was great fun...a lot of really wonderful energy. A great night all around!”

“Thoroughly enjoyed it as did the boys, ages 8 and 11. Not sure we found all the secret doors but they sure had fun trying!”


Erika Lanceskes — Showstoppers Guest on Sep 14, 2012 said:

Rose Mason — Showstoppers Guest on Sep 14, 2012 said:

“We attended the Showstoppers on Monday, August 27th and we had an absolute grand time. We were nicely greeted by two beautiful young ladies and we were told where and what we were going to be doing that evening. We enjoyed the delicious salad bar and the champagne! My mom thoroughly enjoyed the walking through the "mansion" and seeing all of the goodies that were for sale. Then there was the show - Showstoppers was an excellent name for the show. Me, my husband, girlfriend and mom had an awesome time. We laughed, we giggled and we tipped the performers. They were off the chain! We will return to the O Mansion again. Thank you so much for your hospitality.”


Laura Chapman — Illusions Guest on Sep 14, 2012 said:

Mike Delduco — SRO Concert: Bobby Keys on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“Second time there and felt just like home. What a great evening, the MUSIC, the atmosphere, the people. It's what makes me still want to go out there and do it. Even bought a few things,love looking around. The beer selection was great, last time I was there you had PBR cans for $3,maybe that option in the future, say Bud, Rolling Rock, Yuengling at that price. I look forward to the next time.”


Ellie Bodi — Showstoppers Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“The mansion itself was a spectacle, as was the show! The performers were fun, sassy, and beyond entertaining!”


Sharon Mitri — Showstoppers Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

Showstoppers Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“The mansion is beautiful, everyone was friendly and helpful, and the show was a blast!!”

“What a wonderful surprise! Never, in a million years, did I expect such a treasure in The Mansion on O Street! The staff was warm and welcoming...the food was expertly-prepared and abundant... and the atmosphere simply must be experienced! I will (and already have!) recommend this amazing place to all my friends and family. It is truly delightful. I left feeling light and happy and wanting to return as soon as possible!”


Natalie Orlie — SRO Bobby Keys Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“i found 3 doors, the log cabin and the wine cellar! had a great time. loved the cookies”


O'Kids Playdate Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“We came as a family, and our 6 and 8 year olds loved everything the mansion had to offer. We did the treasure hunt after searching for secret passageways, and they even had fun going back through the same rooms to find cool items they hadn't noticed before (as did my husband and I). The employees were so very sweet and extremely curteous. They seemed as excited to tell us about it as we were to learn! And our favorite part about the mansion was the lack of traffic. Many locals know the dreadful tourist season, known as summer, when all the other DC museums are packed full to the brim with people. While we ran into a few people at the O Museum, it was never crowded and were able to say hi and share secret passageways info with passerbys and didn't feel overwhelmed. I told all my friends with older children that if you want something to do during the summer months without the overload of people, this is the place. Not only do the kids learns something new, but it is so much fun for them to think outside the box while trying to find passageways! And again, the parents will love it at the same time, and for different reasons, like seeing all the musicians that have stayed there, by reading the multiple signed guitars, that it's an all around win win!”


Jill Price — O'Kids Playdate on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“My 8 year old son had a great time hunting for hidden doors and hidden treasures! He can not wait to go back and look for secret doors! Thank you for such a great experience!”


Laura Gold — Self-Guided Tour Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“Loved, loved, LOVED our visit to the Mansion on O Street. I was visiting D.C. with my 8-1/2-year-old daughter (her first time in D.C.), and exploring the Mansion was a highlight of the trip for her. For me as well -- I've already recommended it to my D.C. friends.”


Rayda Nadal — Showstoppers Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“This is the most amazing place in DC!!! I LOVE IT!! Will be bringing back family and friends and whomever visits!!!”


Showstoppers Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“Tons of fun. Awesome place. Definately plan on returning.”


Becky O'Neil — Sugar Tour Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“We had such a great time on our visit. My children were amazed (as was I) and can't wait to come back. Next time we come, we will bring friends.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Aug 29, 2012 said:

“A large array of items displayed beautifully in each of the rooms with easy to access items for sale. Four levels of awesome rooms to look at with mystery rooms decorated with more items for sale. The only suggestion I would give would be to have either an area or a cabinet rack to better display jewelry so they don't accidentally fall of racks and get tangled.”


Hotel Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“We had a great time--thanks for being so hospitable! Can't wait to come back.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“The mansion was great! The staff was very attentive. I discovered lots of relics from previous generations, browsed through books, played the keyboard, and challenged a friend to a game of pool. The best part was picking up a miniature table for $10!”


O'Kids Playdate Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Visiting the mansion was truly a unique experience. There is so much to see and explore. The architecture, furnishings and fittings are fascinating, and the bathrooms are by turn whimsical, luxurious, or inventive. The two children (11 and 12 years old) loved looking for the hidden doors, and they found about 6! We all felt we were lost several times and were never sure we saw every room. It was so much fun, and we were frequently calling to others to "come see this." However, the old (grandparents) legs had enough after the first exploration. We all enjoyed the delicious cookies, but didn't have the energy to go through the mansions again to complete the treasure hunt.”


O'Kids Playdate on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Awesome place to visit and even more fun to stay. It's like being inside a video game trying to find the secret way through the passages.”


John Randall - Hotel Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Fabulous as always. In DC the Mansion is my home away from home.”


Sunday Brunch Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“We had a delightful time! The building is so intriguing, I'm not sure we even saw it all! Best part was that it was an activity that the whole family enjoyed. It was probably the last family outing for a couple of years as my daughters head off to start their new careers so it was wonderful that everyone enjoyed it! Oh, and the staff was fun and terrific!”


Breakfast Guests on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“We were married at the Mansion 17 years ago and were finally able to come back for an anniversity celebration. A lot has changed but I was pleased to note that the core remains the same. Thanks for another wonderful day. We will be back soon - with friends.”


Showstoppers Drag Show Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Ms. Dupree, fabulous....that's all I have too say”


Showstoppers Drag Show Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“It was an over-the-top experience! There is so much to see in the Mansion you really need to plan for more time before or after the show. We saw the drag show which was fun for everyone.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“We enjoyed learning of your existence! We are looking forward to returning for brunch or maybe a concert!”


Lloyd W. McChesney — Sunday Breakfast on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“I love the mansion. Ted and H always make us feel like it's our home away from home. For a few of our guests it was their first visit but it won't be the last. The O Mansion is the best kept secret in Washington, D.C. Thanks for all you do!”


Julia Farber - Sugar Tour Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“It was surely a unique activity! The staff was so friendly and helpful and I learned a ton about the house, and possibly a new place to send friends and family to stay when visiting.”


Afternoon Tea Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“The server was fantastic, unobtrusive, & very professional.”


Bonnie Rathbone - Breakfast Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

Self-Guided Tour Guest on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Second time there, and loved every minute. Can't wait to go back!”


Barbara Wallace - Self Guided Tour on Aug 21, 2012 said:

“Always intriguing! I think we found at least 11 of the secret doors. We has lots of fun looking at the eclectic decorations and other items, trying on hats, and even bought a few things to take home with us. What a fun adventure!”


Theodore R. Lewis — Hotel Guest on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“The Mansion is not a hotel. It is an Alice in Wonderland experience. I have stayed in very fine hotels world wide and I have never been taken care as well as I was taken care of at the mansion. I will be back.”


Carlota Belmo — Sunday Brunch Guest on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“I want you guys to know that I'm still raven about the Mansion. I told my husband about it and that we must come and have brunch soon. My girlfriends and I said we must come back before summer is over. The food was great, I was concern about not having a good selection of choice of food, being a vegetarian, but I was pleased to see I had quite a bit of choices, thank you for that. One thing I would suggest is that the house # be more visible. I had a hard time finding the place, but other than that I loved the Museum and hope to see you guys again soon. God bless you all. Peace & Love. Carlota Belmo”


Museum Guest — Sugar Tour on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“At first i was worried walking up to a brownstone in dupont, i thought this "mansion" tour was a bit embellished. However, you learn that they have many brownstones which are interconnected. I thought my self-guided tour was a lot of fun. i did wonder how many secret doors were hiding in rooms that guests were staying in as I didn't keep count of those that my party found. my favorite part was the wine cellar :)”


Museum Guest — O'Kids Playdate on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“Very interesting and bizarre place. Excellent way to spend a few hours with kids. There is a lot to see in this place. Fun experience.”


Mansion Guest — Sunday Breakfast on Aug 14, 2012 said:

Karen Moss — Showstoppers Drag Show on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“amazing, Awesome, funny, exciting!”


Tereza Jenkins — Showstoppers Drag Show on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“The all you can eat salad bar was awesome, not super big but the food was very tasty and filling! The salad bar layout was very classy and appealing. Loved the egg plant with the sweet sauce! The mansion was very nice, we didn't get to see all of it, and only found 2 of the 60 + secret doors, more reason to return! The drag show was very entertaining, the boys put on quite a show. The only down side and I hope the only time it happens is that the show was 40 minutes late in starting. The valet parking was excellent and fast, no waiting! P.S. love the hats! Kudos to all, job well done!”


Christa Sperling — Showstoppers Drag Show on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“So fun! Great for a night out with your friends or for your friends from out of town...if they are open to something out of the ordinary--and not just the show: the entire experience is something special...”


Tour Guest — O'Kids Playdate on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“hello! I brought my nephew and niece (ages 9 and 5) for a fun adventure that was something different, and that's exactly what we got!! we all had a great time with the Treasure hunt! There are so many details to absorb throughout the mansion. We found only couple doors on our own, and a few with a little assistance. I would like to come back without the kids sometime to really search for more doors!!! thank you!”


Dana McCullough — Showstoppers Drag Show on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“I had a wonderful time. This venue is one-of-a-kind and fabulous! Can't wait to visit again. Dana”


Jeff Grossklaus, Michigan— SRO Concert Mark Bryan on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“Really enjoyed the evening. Mark Bryan was very connected with the audience. He sang some great songs, by himself, with his girlfriend and his other friend. It was my first time to The Mansion. I would recommend the experience to anyone. I'll return when I am in town again.”


Alex — SRO Concert Mark Bryan on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“The concert felt so intimate like this wonderful artist was performing in a fancy living room. I had so much fun exploring the mansion before the event too. I had never been here and I knew nothing about the mansion and I was very pleasantly surprised by the entire evening. I am definitely coming back for more :)”


Happy Hours Guest on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“Great time !! I shouldn't have walked out the lower level, cause now I'm in love with the double-neck SG !!!”


Rebecca Bentzinger DC London Arts — Private Party on Aug 14, 2012 said:

“We received rock star attention! The food was delicious and my guests emailed today to say that they tried to describe their Mansion experience to others and couldn't find enough superlatives to capture their adventure. I believe that WOW won out for them and me. Thank you for a perfect meal and afternoon!”


SRO Concert Guest — Mark Bryan on Aug 14, 2012 said:

Showstoppers Drag Show Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Loved the show. loved the self-guided tour. Got lost a couple of times, but found my way. My friend and I joind some other guests and had an absolute blast. I never had so much fun! The salad bar and the desrt bars are fantastic, even though at the end I couldn't eat a single piece of that scrumptious desert...well, we got all nicely hammered - reasonably :) and had so much fun molesting all your drag queens they had to restrain some of us :)”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“The O Street Mansion was a really fun, interesting and unique experience. After doing all of the museums and tourist attractions in the city, my friends and I were looking for something different to do. We did the self guided tour of the mansion and explored on our own. The people at the Mansion were friendly and the atmosphere was exciting and mysterious. I got to feel like Nancy Drew, searching through an old mansion, looking for secret rooms and hidden trap doors. I had a really great time and my friend and I plan on coming back. We want to find all of those secret rooms!As for the mansion being dirty, I didn't see it that way. There was stuff everywhere, sure, but that made it a more unique experience. If it was just like any old mansion then there would be no attraction. All in all, if you are looking for something really REALLY different to do, try the O Street Mansion.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“I loved exploring the mansion at my leisure. It was so much fun discovering the secret doors and all the little treasures. The rooms were incredible!! The themes were beautifully done, and it was amazing to walk into such unique spaces at every turn.”


Private Event on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Thank you very much, Katherine! The event went exactly as I wanted it to be---very special! As always, the setting made it even more special, and while the occasion was a bit sad, everyone had a great time! The food was divine, and service was excellent.”


Concer Guest — SRO Concert Shawn Mullins on Jul 16, 2012 said:

Treasure Hunt Tour on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“My boyfriend and I had a great time at the O Mansion! We had no idea what to expect so went in with an open mind. We had a reservation for a treasure hunt tour and had a blast looking for the items and searching for hidden doors. We will definitely return and will recommend to friends and family.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Our family had a wonderful time touring the mansion. We really appreciated the unique items on display and it was great that it was kid friendly as well. We definitely think it is one of Washington's best kept secrets.”


Derek Reeves — Sunday Breakfast Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Thank you and your wife again for the friendly hospitality and helping me and my family in this time of transition in our lives. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Mansion and all it had to offer! We will definitely come back and visit the Mansion many times whether for brunch or a show!”


Teri-e Belf — Sunday Brunch Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“How can I say that the Mansion on O feels like home, my home looks nothing like it? Perhaps it is not the physical environment with its elegant charm and inspirational beauty. Perhaps it is the energy that envelopes and beckons entrance into a time when all is at peace. Perhaps it is the feelings of warmth and welcome that emerge whenever interacting with staff. Perhaps it is that painting with the sun in the bathroom with angels carved into the mirrored shower backdrop over the tub? Perhaps it is home.”


Jimmy Davis — Hotel Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Thank you H and Ted and everyone at the Mansion! Incredible!”


Sugar Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“It was a lot of fun. So many things to look at and to reminisce over. Quite a collection. Have lived in the Washington area all my life and never knew this museum existed. Thanks to Groupon for pointing that out. I also went home and found several things that would make perfect donations!!”


Sugar Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Loved it! Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely will be returning!”


Karen Mac — Hotel Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Hilary took great care of us! We were a party of 12, 4 Moms and 8 girls, celebrating my daughter's 16th birthday. Hilary cheerfully served a wonderful 4-course dinner of my daughter's favorite foods and helped us with all kinds of little needs as well. The girls loved roaming the mansion and we Moms enjoyed having comfortable sofas made for conversation! The beds were very comfortable. You helped us make wonderful memories for my daughter and her friends.”


Hotel Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“To rate the Mansion on a star scale like other hotels is senseless because the Mansion isn't like other hotels. I rate it A# (A-Sharp).”


T. O'Reilly - Hotel Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Great Place!”


Social Tour Guest on Jul 16, 2012 said:

“Great fun. Loved exploring. I'm sure we missed a lot, but loved what we saw.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“The Mansion is a fascinating adventure. We had no idea what to expect and were delighted to be turned loose to explore on our own. The experience is like being caught inside a novel by Alain Robbe-Grillet: Objects have changed their place when we go back through a room. Hallways lead nowhere. Walls open. We walk through a mirror into other mirrors. Always a slight sense of claustrophobia and surrealism. There is no time, no direction. The objects have no reason. We know we are being observed. We escaped. But yes, we will come back.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Fantastic bartender”


Father's Day Breakfast Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“The staff is wonderful. Thought the breakfast well worth the cost.”


Adam Gooch — Hotel Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“I had never stayed at the Mansion before (and technically, I guess I still haven't, since I stayed across the street at the Safehouse), but I can safely say I will stay there again - if you've got room for me. I spent two out of three evenings just looking around and wandering through all the rooms. As a special bonus, I got to stay in the Versailles suite, which was awesome - I was lucky to be there at just the right time, I think. Thank you to everybody who made me feel welcome and comfortable - the Mansion is a unique experience and I'm glad I had the opportunity to give it a try.”


Sylvia Vriesendorp — Hotel Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Wonderful relaxed place. the scavenger hunt was an amazing experience. I love you leaving the unoccupied rooms open for exploration and, although I didn't get to taste it (would anyone dare?) your chocolate Capitol. the food was also fabulous. It was a great setting for a team retreat.”


Hotel Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Loved it! Would recommend it. Excellent food. A fun place to stay.”


Hotel Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“A pleasure as always. Thank you for everything!”


Barbara Wimbush — Sunday Breakfast Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“As usual, we enjoyed our visit to the Mansion. We experienced a wonderful meal and great company. My husband and I talked with a lovely couple at the next table. It seems that all who visit the Mansion have a spirit of happiness and love for other people. Our biggest enjoyment was getting the chance to talk with H and Ted. They are two of the nicest people we know. We look forward to our next visit.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Great fun! Wonderful atmosphere and just an interesting place to visit. Daniel was a great source of fun information.”


Treasure Hunt Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“We did, indeed, revel in our few hours in your unexpected and very heartening place. As we thought on our way out, serenaded by the strains of good soul folk rock, it is good to know that endeavors that celebrate the eclectic and artistic with heart and principle do exist, especially in the vortex of money and cynicism and celebrity that marks modern America.”


Winn Brewer — Happy Hours Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“The Mansion was THE Most Incredible thing I have seen and done in Washington. I will definitely go again and bring all of my friends! Absolutely unique and fantastic Thanks so much for such a fun evening!”


Dennis Freezer — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Touring the Mansion is a fascinating experience. I ended up buying one book I found during our search for hidden doors etc., but my wife and I found five hidden doors and thoroughly enjoyed the hunt and the fascinating objects we found throughout the tour.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Love the secret doors!”


Bonnie Klein — Sunday Breakfast Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“I've lived a block and a half away from the Mansion for 5 years and finally had a look inside yesterday. It really is an escape to another world, in which the rooms are so ornate they seem to come out of a fairy tale. I'll definitely be coming back to see more.”

“The Mansion is truly magical. Everyone in our group was wowed not only by the unique physical aspects of the Mansion but also by the wonderful service we enjoyed. Hilary and Katherine did a marvelous jobs of taking care of our quests and event arrangements. Amanda deserves special thanks for being a superb hostess Friday night for a group of us in the Wine Cellar. You can be sure we will be back to the Mansion.”


Mary Meyer — Docent Led Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and find the museum an amazing place! Our tour was unique, fun and totally entertaining. I've already mentioned coming back to my daughter, daughter-in-law, friend and my wonderful granddaughter to enjoy tea.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Very personable and helpful staff. We were pleasantly surprised to find this unusual museum tucked away from the usual hustle and bustle of the city. So many things to see in such a short period of time, particularly for those who like to browse. It made for a lovely day!”


Lee Berkeley — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Had a great time. The house was fascinating, there weren't too many people around to cramp our style, and we had a lot of fun. It's really rather amazing. I loved the Lodge room... or whatever you call it. It was wonderful!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Great experience!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Interesting and fun experience. Will recommend it to out of town visitors for sure.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“It was great! So interesting and lots to see...I'll definitely be back. Hopefully for the big O Street Mansion sale!”


Josh Edelman — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Just an incredible, impossible-to-describe gem! I just found my new favorite "museum", and will be recommending it to everyone I know. Staycations will now be based out of the Mansion! Thanks for the quirky contribution to D.C.”


Patricia Nyikos — Sunday Breakfast on Jun 19, 2012 said:

“Had a wonderful time exploring the rooms. A surprise around every corner!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Really fun. Felt like a kid looking around for hidden doors, and it wasn't corny! Until we found the first door, we weren't sure what a "hidden door" really was. How hidden? How integrated into the surroundings? After 2 hours and only finding 12, they really are hidden pretty well. The glass of champagne was a neat addition to the whole experience. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“A fun, unique date night. Thanks!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Had a wonderful time. As soon as you put this up again on Specialicious, LivingSocial, or Groupon I will buy several sets for friends, as presents. I know they will enjoy it a lot!”


Patricia Reed — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“A visual extravaganza! Hope we didn't miss anything and definitely plan to return.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“We had a fantastic time and are already planning when to come back for brunch and high tea. The hats were wonderful, but we need to find more secret doors...we only found four! LOL”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Simply amazing!!”


Secret Door & Sugar Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“What a wonderful and delightful time we had yesterday afternoon! My boys (ages 11 & 13) were thrilled at even the thought of finding secret doors and compartments (they found 10!) and are already asking when we can go back to look for more! We spent hours of quality time as a family looking for doors and we are already planning our return trip!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“It was so much fun to try to find the hidden doors. We found 7 on our first trip to the home. We plan to return. We want to find more of them!! Also, we want to see the rooms that were occupied when we were there this time. The Lady Butler that was there when we arrived was very friendly and very helpful”


Carole — Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“I loved my visit and this hat!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“The Mansion on O street was amazing! Totally exceeded our expectations. What a little gem. Wouldn't have even thought to go there if not for Livingsocial. Putting this on my top list of things to do with family and friends when they visit the DC area. Can't wait to try the murder mystery dinners.”


Ralph Steiniger — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Our group of 4 adults had a great time. We spent several hours their and never got bored. We might rent a room for a night in the future. GREAT job”

“Very unique fun thing to do, we really enjoyed ourselves!”

Mary Sawyer — Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Very, very cool place. We loved our visit at the Mansion and enjoyed meeting everyone there. Could have stayed all day exploring. Thanks so much for your hospitality. Can't believe I lived in the area all my life and never knew about you guys! Am looking forward to our next visit one day. : )”


Hotel Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“I love staying at your hotel. It is convenient, the decor is fascinating (an understatement), I love the pool table room, and have mentioned it to all of my friends. It is a great DC landmark.”


Hotel Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“A wonderful place, certainly! I was surprised not to find something to buy, but there was no shortage of books and dishes from which to choose. I somehow failed to find (on my own) even a single of the many hidden doors. I very much hope to return, and would love to eventually see some of my late mom's art join your extensive collection.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“The Mansion was an incredible display of eclectic design. Thank you for sharing with the public!”


Hotel Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“I've stayed with the mansion about 5 times and was very pleasantly surprised this most recent stay to stay in an upgraded room. It definitely made me feel appreciated as a customer! Thank you!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“Totally enjoyed the experience. loved the musicians on sunday afternoon.”


Razzle Dazzle Sale Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“One of the weirdest places in DC. Loved it!”


Mr. John Hatfield — Illusions Show on Jun 5, 2012 said:

“We had a really incredible time. The show was great, and I think I'm still is awe of the 100 or so rooms (no, I don't think I saw all of them). The secret doors and passageways were fun to find (no, I didn't find all of them). We'll be back, with friends, on the last Monday of the month! :) A really enjoyable evening! Thank you!”


Mrs. Susan Mankin — Italian Stallion Brunch on May 28, 2012 said:

“Food: was excellent - the italian station had fresh caprisi salad and I heard my friends say the tomatoes were lucious! And was very surprised and happy with the fresh basil on the salad. Fluffernutters were a big hit! Ambiance: dizzying! awesome! Service: our waitress was on spot on taking away our dishes and very responsive to our requests. Great! My mother-n-law is very happy with the Angel she bought and it was fun interacting with your other guests. A random little boy came up to me and gave me a 'birthday' card and a hug...it was just so sweet and it was so much fun talking to the lady who bought the 'red man statue' Just a an overall awesome experience and I was glad to share it was my friends and family. Thanks Katherine, H, Ted, and our waitress!”


Concert Guest — SRO Concert: Jason Isbell on May 28, 2012 said:

“Great show. Jason Isbell was just spectacular, and the sound was terrific.”


Natalie Orlie - SRO Concert: Jason Isbell on May 28, 2012 said:

“Jason Isbell far exceeded my expectations and was worth every penny! He was amazing.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“We loved it. It was so fun to walk through all the different rooms - each one was so unique. We enjoyed seeing the architectural details and the various decorative styles. The numerology reports were an added bonus. We'll be back with our kids next time to find more doors. We found five on the first visit!”


Sue Brown — Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“It could not have been better. It is a fun house for adults. esp. loved searching for secret doors.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“A fun, unique thing to do with artists in residence and an something for everyone!”


Madeline Lyon — Champagne Tour on May 28, 2012 said:

“Spent most of the time looking for the hidden doors. Found seven! Next time I'll have to check out the merchandise more carefully. Wish I could afford to spend the night in one of the bedrooms. The log cabin suite was my favorite. My friends and I had agreat time.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“This was such a fun time and have already told many friends about our experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, but discreet. Will definitely come back and try to find more hidden doors and treasures.”


Sugar Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Had a lovely time, can't wait to come back again.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“The staff were all very helpful and friendly! The mansion was a lot of fun to explore..both looking for secret passageways and admiring the unique rooms and memorabilia! Champagne is always fun too! I forgot to ask if cabinet-type openings count too if they're hidden, or just big door-type passageways?”


Shekida Smith — Sugar Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I had a great time, would definitely recommend it and I would definitely do it again!”


Rhiannon Barnes — Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Great atmosphere! We had an awesome time but we were disappointed that the entire second floor was closed for a private event. We felt like we missed a lot. Wished we had known beforehand when we booked. We would definitely recommend the Mansion!”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“We need to come again! We only found a few secret doors!”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I especially enjoyed all the hats!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“You are AMAZING - THRILLED to 'discover' you after years of visits to DC. We will DEFINITELY be back!! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I took my mom on a self-guided tour as part of her Mother's Day celebration. We had such an amazing time! The mansion was simply beautiful and out of the 66 doors, I think we only found about 25. We are planning to take the guided tour next time to make sure we are able to see all of the hidden treasures. See you soon!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“So much fun to explore! Enjoyed finding passageways and learning my way around the house!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“love the secret doors and self-tour.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I surprised my sister with the Champagne Tour offered on Living Social and she absolutely loved it! We both did! And....better than average champagne! She is planning on returning in the near future with some out-of-town guests. A reallly fun time!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I loved the tour - I wish we had a map”


Kay O'Brien — Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“My husband and I had a fabulous time at the mansion. We loved the friendly feeling we got upon entering this special place. One could spend hours just wandering and taking it all in. The rooms are all so beautiful with such an eclectic collection of furniture, china, paintings, chandeliers and signed guitars! We were lucky enough to enter a secret doorway and be able to listen in on some of the musicians playing one of my favorite songs! It added an extra piece of enjoyment to our already special visit. We will be sure to return soon!”


Dr. Diane Witt — Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“We had a great time getting lost in your interesting home! Diane & Erin”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“We had such a great time on our Champagne Tour! There was not nearly enough time to see every nook and cranny ... let alone the secret doors! We only found about 5 or so before we gave up (this time around!). We can't WAIT to come back and tell all of our friends and family about this hidden treasure in DC!”


Dr. Annabelle Reitman — Champagne Tour on May 28, 2012 said:

“Really liked exploring the rooms & seeing how they were set-up & decorated. They seemed to go on forever.”


Rob Turnbull and Ron Sykes — Hotel Guests on May 28, 2012 said:

“We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay. We will definately make reservations again. We would love to reserve your wine cellar for an intimate dinner for 8. Also to find out the name of the suite with the walls and ceiling drapped with fabric and the wooden step up jacuzzi along with the two wooden pedestal sinks. Thank you so much for your hospitality.”


M. Burgess — Self-Guided Tour on May 28, 2012 said:

“The museum was fascinating, I had to go through more than once! Loved all the art!”


Hotel Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Loved the midshipman. It was very clean. Thank you!”


Megan — Mansion Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I am donating my cap and gown to The Mansion. Sell it for $144,000. Its what college cost my family!”


Christie — Hotel Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Great Place! Really enjoyed it.”


Tiffany Gray — Sugar Tour Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I thought it was great. I never thought places like this existed in DC. I will definitly come back again and with friends.”


William — Hotel Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Obviously, very cool! Will stay here again next time. I will bring my wife to D.C. now!”


Paula — Hotel Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“I cannot thank you and H enough for taking such wonderful care of Carl and myself this past weekend. It really was an incredible experience and Carl has told everyone it was one of his best birthdays in a long, long time. I didn't realize he had never stayed in DC proper before and we spent hours wondering around Georgetown and Dupont Circle. We have both been under a great deal of stress lately and I cannot remember the last time I was so at peace.”


Courtney Alford — Illusions Guest on May 28, 2012 said:

“Wandering through the Mansion for the first time was absolutely magical! After searching for secret doors, exploring, and giving into my childlike curiosity, I realized I'd already found the most important secret door of them all, the front door. I thank you for letting me into your Wonderland. Sincerely, Alice”


Laura Hall on May 28, 2012 said:

“What a great alternative to the usual DC museums. Great fun exploring the rooms. It would have been kind of nice to have a few clues about the secret doors as some really didn't lead anywhere but it was still fun. Prices on things for sale were generally very reasonable. Having some sort of bags or even some newspaper and grocery bags would be helpful for people since a lot of what is for sale is breakable. I probably wouldn't buy anything in there if I hadn't had a vehicle with me with something to wrap my item in, so if you want to encourage sales you should make it more accessible. Other than than it was great fun.”

Monday Power Lunch Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“Ahhhh, a chance to feel as if transported to another place in time where perfection really exists. The hazelnut torte straight from Viennese Konditorei, the welcoming friendliness and professionalism of staff, the objets d'art within sight and easily within pocketbook reach and... always the magical synchronicity of what happens. This time I sat next to 4 Tinkerbell plates. As an avid admirer of Tink, I would have paid a pretty penny for these golden lined plates and they were only $6. each. Now I have ethereal memories of a wonderful lunch and a keepsake as well.”


Jacqui - Mother's Day Brunch Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“We had a great time at the mansion yesterday, and I was so pleased to introduce your home to my kids in such a warm and easy fashion. The food was superb!! ...and presentation ~ as always ~ perfection!! Seriously, you have the best champagn brunch in town! It is a very difficult trick to pull off perfectly prepared food that is bright, flavorful, and fresh, from grilled meats to asparagus. (Yes, I am a foodie.)”


Kate Clemans - Mother's Day Brunch Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“Always fabulous, friendly and with delicious food!”


Mother's Day Brunch Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“It was sublime and I scored points with my Mom-in-Law too!”


Kylee - Communion Brunch on May 15, 2012 said:

“Thanks for a great brunch!


Champagne Tour Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“We had a wonderful time. The staff was extremely friendly, and the mansion itself is amazing. Didn't find more than 8 secret passages, but the place is full of amazing and amusing paraphernalia. The rooms were very tastefully decorated and the bathrooms were awesome! Our two hours passed real quickly.”


Linda Murphy, Champagne Tour Guest on May 15, 2012 said:

“We thoroughly enjoyed our champagne and tour of the mansion. The chandeliers were amazing. Each bedroom had it's own personality. The bathrooms were beautiful and unusual. There was so much to see in the mansion. We enjoyed trying on all the hats. We had a lot of fun exploring the mansion with its many secret doors.”


Jim Ryan — Happy Hours on May 10, 2012 said:

“Blown away by the turn out on a Monday for the Drag show, wish I could have stayed to see the performances! As usual my VIP's from Las Vegas were enchanted with touring the mansion”


Jim Gelber — Hotel Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“Staying at the Mansion was such as special experience. From the moment you are greeted by the Speros to your farewell. I would say it is just like home, but my home is small and doesn't have the same level of artwork and space. This was my second visit, and I enjoyed even more. The location is ideal for enjoying all that Washington, D.C. has to offer. Look forward to staying again.”


Maggie Bibb — Medmarc Insurance Group Corporate Event on May 10, 2012 said:

“Medmarc Insurance Group recently held an event at the Mansion which included cocktails, cheese/crackers, desserts and the treasure hunt "Above & Beyond". The desserts were well presented, lovely to look at and absolutely scrumptious. Everyone loved the Mansion and what it had to offer. In fact some people requested more info from me because they plan to take friends and/or family to the Mansion. What a big hit. The staff on duty that evening were very engaging and very customer oriented. They made our visit to the Mansion even more pleasureable. They were the GREATEST!!! The contact that I worked with to schedule the event was Katherine Johnson. Katherine was a pleasure to work with and met my every need in planning the event. Big Kudos to her. Thanks for making our event a truly unforgettable experience.”


Theresa Rice - Treasure Hunt Tour on May 10, 2012 said:

“I am always complementing the Mansion on O St. and tell my friends who are coming to town looking for something interesting that it's a MUST SEE! Fantastic staff and incredible displays throughout. And a special shout out to the acoustic band! Awesome!! Thank you Thank you Thank you!!”


Hotel Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“This remains my favorite hotel in the country. Coming to DC always involves stress and your hotel relieves that stress. It is a gem and a delight for all the senses. I am and will remain a "regular".”


Hotel Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“It was a memorable stay, I mean, experience. There is no way I could compare it to any other hotels because there are no hotels like the O Mansion. I have tried to find words to describe the place to friends, but I could not come up with anything appropriate enough. The staff was warm, helpful and very accommodating. Ted and H are simply wonderful hosts and so approachable. I felt like I was visiting friends, rather than staying in a hotel. I love everything about the place.”


Cicero Fain - Champagne Tour on May 10, 2012 said:

“A thoroughly enjoyable time! Wonderful kitsch, memorabilia, photographs, rooms, and art. We enthusiastically shared our experiences with friends that day and will definitely spread the word far and wide. And, will certainly buy gift certificates in the not too distant future. One suggestion: we would've liked a map or list upon completion of the tour to see which hidden doors we had missed!”


Natalie Orlie - SRO Concert: Tom Constanten on May 10, 2012 said:

“it was awesome!”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“The museum is a refreshing break from typical stuffy DC tourist experiences, and a nice break from the world for that matter!”


Mary Greer - Hotel Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“Thanks TED and H! You preside over a magical place there.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“I attended the self-guided champagne tour and loved it! Definitely a unique experience that I'd recommend to friends should another groupon/living social deal come along.”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“We had great fun this morning. We received the tour as a Christmas present. We would recommend it to anybody!”


Sugar Tour Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“I wish I had known about this place sooner! We had so much fun and will be back again soon!”


Easter Tea Guest on May 10, 2012 said:

“Second time. This was a blast, with both an Easter/Alice in Wonderland theme...perfectly adding to the whimsy of the scavenger experience...secret doors, lurking "characters", rabbit holes, OH MY! Brought a friend for her birthday. She was overwhelmed with enchantment. Scrumptous confectionaries and great staff, too! Thank you.”


Bill Cusmano - SRO Concert: Tom Constanten on May 7, 2012 said:

“Who doesn't like to be at the Mansion? The event was not a focused theme; I gathered that the unifying element was the guy filming the event. I talked to several of the performers (Tom Constanten, Billy Hancock)and neither of them knew how the bill was assembled. But it still was a great night. Chill to the max, with an easy energy. Nicely done. I knew Billy Hancock from the early 80's, but he obviously has a range much greater than the rockabilly persona he created back then. Great singer. TC is amazingly eclectic and talented, with a quirky, assertive presence. The surprise of the night was Warner Williams. Blues to me can be overwrought, over-earnest, done and done again, but Williams brought a freshness to the material that belied both his age (82? really?!) and the age of the material. Great stuff.”


SRO Guest: Tom Constanten Concert on May 6, 2012 said:

“We had a blast!! Top notch music! Fabulous venue! Wonderful company! We look forward to doing it again soon!”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 4, 2012 said:

“The Mansion on O Street was an experience unlike any other I've had. A feast for the senses. My friends and I all enjoyed the tour. I recommend anyone see it at least once.”


Illusions Show Guest on May 2, 2012 said:

“LOVE LOVE LOVEd it! So cool to wander around the mansion, and the Illusions show was so much fun. Thanks!!!”


Illusions Show Guest on May 2, 2012 said:

“This was a great evening. The drag show was hilarious - our party (which included 1 of 2 straight men in the audience) had a fantastic time. Really awesome entertainers! Way to go girls! The mansion is so fun, and quirky - I'm so glad I got there early so I could explore. So much awesome stuff!”


Maria Clara — Sugar Tour Guest on Apr 30, 2012 said:

“our visit was wonderful. We had a lot of fun looking for the doors, exploring each corner of the house and also the books. We left the house with 9 books in our hands! :) Look forward to going back soon!”


Damon Taylor — Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 30, 2012 said:

“Energy, connection, warmth, beauty--these are the things of which we are in awe. And the Mansion on O has them in spades. BAM! Our hosts, Ted and HH, were kind, relaxed and warm. And the Mansion itself invites journey into its rooms, hallways, and the extraordinary collection of items demanding your time, attention and care. A gem in the mine that is DC, fo show! We are excited to return soon with pick, shovel and head lamp, ready to unearth more treasure, be it a book, an extraordinary hat or memories in one of the many unique spaces that make the Mansion what it is and life as full as it can be.”


Sharon Comstock — Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 30, 2012 said:

“I am telling everyone I know to visit The Mansion. I cannot believe I had never heard of it before Living Social brought it to my attention. I felt like Alice in Wonderland. I would visit again and again.”


Illusions Show Guest on Apr 30, 2012 said:

“I came to the Mansion with five friends for a fun "Girls' Night Out". We honestly had no idea what to expect. To say we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement! All six of us have very different personalities and yet we ALL agreed that this was one of the most entertaining nights any of us has ever had! The staff was exceptionally attentive and FUN, the Mansion is so eccentric that just walking through was a fantastic sensory overload, and eating dinner in our little nook wearing the Mansions fancy hats made us feel like we were having an adult tea party (or an adult "Champagne Party", as the case may be!) The show was a complete riot and we loved that they incorporated two members of our group into the act. We laughed from the second we walked into The Masion until the second we walked out the door. Diana, Barbra, and Rihanna will never be the same! The show also taught me a very valuable lesson: Be careful when posting pictures on Facebook unless you want to explain to your seventy year old mother that the lipstick marks on your chest were the result of a good "motorboating" by Rihanna!! We can't wait to grab the other six members of our "posse" and come back for another show! Thank you all for such a laugh-filled, smile inducing, memorable night! And a special thank you to Ted, Leslie, and of course our new best friend Chauncy for what will be a night none of us will forget.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Apr 29, 2012 said:

“We had a great time! The kids (10 & 12yrs old) had a wonderful time exploring and looking for secret doors. It was a perfect environment to get the imagination running wild. The staff was very helpful and accomodating. The only suggestion I could make would be to have healthier snacks in addition to the candy. Thanks for a great time.”


Self-Guided Dessert Tea Tour Guest on Apr 28, 2012 said:

“The staff was friendly, and helpful.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 28, 2012 said:

“We're coming back to celebrate a 70th birthday, if you'll have us!!”


Hotel Guest on Apr 25, 2012 said:

“Great change of pace after staying at all the name brand hotels in DC. It felt more like a vacation than a business trip. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet and location. Will return!”


Sugar Tour Guest on Apr 25, 2012 said:

“It was very interesting and a fun girls night out! I've lived in this area my whole life and have never had an opportunity to see these cool old houses around Dupont Circle. Great concept!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 25, 2012 said:

“Great place for a unique and fun experience. Highly recommended, do the tour or for that matter try a hotel stay. All kinds of unique things to see and explore and in a great area.”


Rose & Dan Lash on Apr 25, 2012 said:

“To Steve, our tour guide, and Ted. our sponsor, we cannot put into words our experience of such wonderment and total enjoyment! We could easily do promo work for you. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon!”


Richard Miller — Self-Guided Tour on Apr 24, 2012 said:

“A really neat and interesting tour. So much to see we will have to go back. Personel were very friendly & helpful also.”


Kevin Kennedy — SRO Filmmaker Chip Duncan on Apr 23, 2012 said:

“Thank you so much for helping me raise my awareness of global issues from multiple perspectives - both the sad and hope-filled realities. The live music was a welcomed enrichment to the experience. The staff could not have been more welcoming. Thank you, Kevin”


Deborah Prigal — SRO Filmmaker Chip Duncan on Apr 23, 2012 said:

“Very interesting presentation.”


Toni Jette — Champagne Tour on Apr 23, 2012 said:

“I had never heard of O Mansion and had not looked it up before going on the tour with a Livingsocial voucher and was very pleasantly surprised!! Four of us went and had a great time looking through doorways, rooms, and looking for secret doors. What interesting items and collections to see and wonder why and how they got there. We did find 4 secret doors and think we missed some. We are not actually sure we saw the whole place! But had fun. The lady that met us and poured our glass of champagne was very pleasant and informative about the mansion.”


Susan Chaudry - SRO Filmmaker Chip Duncan on Apr 23, 2012 said:

“Duncan captivating..stories/photos/films inspirational..mansion amazing..enjoyed evening thoroughly...Will return for sure!”

Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 21, 2012 said:

“I wish there were some sort of map just to make sure you've covered all ground, but it was fun and out of the ordinary.”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 21, 2012 said:

“The butler was really friendly and engaging. I enjoyed getting lost in the mansion and enjoyed the champagne which helped in that endeavor. Also found a really cool book amongst the hundreds available for perusal.”

Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 15, 2012 said:

“Loved trying to find all the secret doors- although the signs saying "this is a secret door" kind of gave some of them away...Also enjoyed that everything in the mansion was for sale. I would definitely recommend the O Mansion to friends and visiting family.”

“Love - love- loved it”


Alyce Lomax - Hotel Guest on Apr 14, 2012 said:

“What a wonderful experience, everything was perfect and the Mansion is utterly unique in every way. The staff took care of our every need and there was too much magic to even take in in a short time, so that means I'm coming back. Thank you!”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 14, 2012 said:

“We had a great time exploring all the rooms we were able to find. There is so much to see that we will have to come back again to be able to take in more of it. The staff was very friendly and knowledgable. The Mansion is a fun treasure in the heart of DC.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Apr 13, 2012 said:

“The sugar tour at the Mansion on O was a crazy and wonderful time. We were lucky and found about 10 hidden doors. For people who like sleek, modern, sparse houses, this place may be a bit overwhelming, but it's also like sneaking around your rich, eccentric antiques collecting aunt's house. The neighborhood around the Mansion is beautiful and there are lots of great little eating spots just a street or two over. We had a wonderful time and have already suggested it to our friends who live in DC.”


Sugar Tour Guest on Apr 13, 2012 said:

“Interesting place. It felt like an adventure in a unique flea market with guests. I wasn't sure if I was in someone's guest area or not sometimes. One of the most unique places I've ever been to.”

Jennifer Stratto on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“We were truly were made to feel like family rather than guests. We had an incredible time exploring and creating during our stay. The mansion has such an amazing energy in every room and is an inspiring place to recharge the creative batteries. Thank you.”


Tour Guest on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“What a great experience. Thank you for sharing an adventure with us. I will definitely be back for more secret passages and a great atmosphere.”


Tour Guest on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“It was so much fun. We definetly want to come back and keep finding more doors than we found this time. Everyone was really friendly and I would love to bring others with us!”


Sara Brown on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“interesting concept... I think a map with all the secret doors marked would be a great addition to the self-guided tour. I'm not even sure how much of the museum we never saw as we never knew what the layout was. Also, if there was an option for an audio guided tour, I missed that.”


Karen Carrabba on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“We went to the Monday Happy Hour for our anniversary. What a memorable experience! The staff at the O were attentive and helpful yet unobtrusive . The hostess took pictures of us and even picked out several unique handcrafted hats for me to pose in! We plan on going back to search for more secret doors when family comes to visit next week and we are looking into spending a night in one the theme rooms.”


David B. McIntosh on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“Dear Mansion and all who sail in her, Thank you for your seasonal message. Unfortunately, I shall not be able to join y'all this Easter, but you are forever in my thoughts. All best wishes for a happy and most successful Easter 2012!!”


Hotel Guest on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“Another excellent stay at the Mansion. This time I was in the 5th Dimension -- didn't even know the room existed. Very nice. I particularly enjoyed the Jesse Winchester performance and meeting him after the show. The "jeweled" Les Paul on display was also a treat.”


Michelle Birkenstock on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“I could only find 5 secret doors, and two were given to us by the mansion...for the rest of the day, I have been thinking all doors, bookshelves and walls might lead to a secret room. I'm obsessed with find the doors, and am definitely coming back to try and find some more! Love the entire house, and all the kitchy stuff. Now I want to experience everything, brunch, tea, and even sleeping over! Can't believe I grew up in the NOVA area and never heard of the O Mansion! Will definitely bring friends and family and come back to visit!”


Tour Guest on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“I went with my daughter and we had a great time. We only found 5 doors and can not wait to come back. The young lady that treated us yesterday was very helpful and nice. Today, I told about ten other mom's about the mansion. We have already planned our next visit. What a wonderful treasure!!!”

Doug Dahle on Apr 9, 2012 said:

“The totally unique environment of amazing array of collectibles that provides a chance to see items of historic and just interesting value. The variety of bedrooms with varying themes is a great use of older downtown residence space. The office space is highly beneficial and the informal kitchen for guests is welcoming and nice place to meet new people. The Mansion has a great vibe, very inviting and outstanding hosts Ted and H. I would strongly encourage anyone to consider lodging at the Mansion. Also, as I travel to DC often, the Mansion will be the place to stay if space available. Look forward to trying any of the available rooms. THE PLACE TO STAY AND ENJOY IN DC.”

“I liked it very much, the intimate concert of Jesse Winchester was wonderful, and your mansion is amazing. Sadly enough I was only one week in Washington,but next time I will sure take a look at your website to see if any events meet my wishes, and of course I noted that you are also a hotel.”

Tracey Madigan on Mar 29, 2012 said:

“Jesse Winchester was mesmerizing, his voice was fabulous. Another thing to add to the things I love about O Street Mansion: everyone there is so incredibly respectful of the performer. You can feel the admiration oozing from the crowd. The sound is flawless, because everyone is so quiet, you might as well be the only one in the room. It was great to see Jesse back in action after his recent illness. He churned out a great product, and hasn't lost his touch. He should be proud: his energy, charm and talent are alive and well!”


Concert Guest on Mar 29, 2012 said:

“Jesse Winchester was terrific and the O Street Museum is a fascinating, very unique place. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will eagerly look for opportunities to attend concerts and other events there in the future. Thanks.”


Concert Guest on Mar 29, 2012 said:

William Roach on Mar 29, 2012 said:

Mansion Member on Mar 29, 2012 said:

“I am a legal recruiter at a local law firm and have spent the last 4 1/2 years living in DC. I grew up in Florida and when I moved here is spent the firm few months roaming the city for the next big adventure. But I didn??t discover the Mansion until about a month ago while looking for event space and let me say from the moment I entered the row house I was in awe. I felt like a child as I was given a tour the space discovering new and exciting things. I spend 8 hours a day in an office where my job is to find new ways to recruit students to our firm and to help find a work, life balance with our current employees. That day I walked into the Mansion, my heart smiled because first I was surprised that I didn't know about this hidden treasure, just a few blocks from my office, with its secret passages, themed rooms and dcor for sale, and second I felt at ease. It was a weird combination because I was so excited to see the next room but also wanted to take in the room I was currently standing in with its trinkets, books, portraits, guitars and more. I was overwhelmed in a good way! Last summer I planned the first artistic event the firm has done and a group went to a local art studio and painted portraits of the national mall, and for a person who has little to no artistic ability my canvas hangs proudly in my office. The feedback from that event was overwhelming; those who attended were so excited for a new outlet other than the mundane cocktail parties and socials. Also, people weren??t criticizing paintings but instead were giving complaints and tips to those not confident in their work, not the typical feedback in a work environment. A few weeks later we did a cupcake decorating class and the skeptics who attended reported after that there domestic and creative sides really shined thru with mixing flavors and colors and the best part was they could eat their goodies. These two events reminded us that it??s not all about working hard, it??s also about enjoying working together, giving advice outside of the office and remember there is more to thi! s life than the 9 to 5. Being a member of the Mansion would expand upon the types of events and outlets that I could plan to make our firm more fun, relaxed and creative. It would give us the opportunity step out of the box and explore a different side of ourselves, whether thru a planned event, lunch or a much needed mental break from the rigors of the corporate world. Our events help refocus what all this is really about, building a collegial environment that transcends the halls of the office and into our lives.”


Ester Turner on Mar 27, 2012 said:

“What an interesting tour! This mansion is so eclectic and fun with twists and turns. They have no shame in selling everything that you see in a room. While it was fun to venture on our own, it would have been nice if someone was taking you on a tour...at least to lead you to a central location on each floor, let you explore on your own and then regroup for questions & more of a history of that part of the house. A must see place in DC.”


Donald McGrath on Mar 25, 2012 said:

“Your hospitality from arrival to departure was just fabulous! The Mansion, rooms, staff, furnishings, and much more were just excellent. Thank you for the wonderful visit.”


Tour Guest on Mar 25, 2012 said:

“We did the self-guided tour and loved this crazy, quirky house! We were thrilled to have found 12 on our hour-plus wanderings. It was perfect for our mixed-age group of pre-teens, teens and adults - so much to see! For long-time DC residents, it's amazing we never knew about it, but we'll be telling everyone to come visit now!”


Lauren Armstrong on Mar 19, 2012 said:

We both had an absolute blast exploring your beautiful mansion and delighting in all the treasures and secret doors! Thanks so much for a wonderful afternoon. We will be back and hopefully spend the night!”


Desiree Adkins on Mar 17, 2012 said:

“The O Mansion is such a clever and interesting experience. My guest and I thoroughly enjoyed traversing the mansion, through over 100 rooms and several hidden doors. Those were the most fun to find! I will definitely be visiting The O Mansion again!”

“We had a great time. My boyfriend and I are very competitive people so it became a personal challenge to find the hidden doors. Not that it matters, but I found 7! He claims he found one of those 7 first.... :) Overall, we had a great time just exploring and letting our inner kid come out.”


Katie Kiraly on Mar 15, 2012 said:

Your unique decore and the incredible baths are inspirational. I am ready to renovate my bathrooms at home. I am also very impressed with how DUST FREE and clean everything in the mansion is...NO EASY TASK to maintain the hundreds of tiny items and chandliers with such loving care.”


Nuyiri Kasbarian on Mar 12, 2012 said:

“Of all the activities and events that my friends and I have attended. WE LOVED the Illusions show at the mansion on the O, THE BEST! Not only was the show FABULOUS, but the mansion itself was so much fun. You are free to roam and explore all of the rooms and everything is for sale. You can play and dress up in the props as you please and there are secret passages and doorways. Above all, the staff is EXTREMELY friendly and helpful and the food is DELICIOUS. THANK YOU for a WONDERFUL time.”


Lynn Tolbert on Mar 12, 2012 said:

Kierstin Clay on Mar 10, 2012 said:

Kevin Fagan on Mar 4, 2012 said:

“Yet again, a Mansion visit wowed my 'first time' guests and me, a multi-visit veteran. I get as much joy and pleasure from seeing the looks on people's faces as I get from discovering completely "new" rooms, and discovering another secret passage (I'm still far from uncovering ALL of them!). As always, the food is delicious, the selection is broad and the mix of people you bump into touring around is fascinating. Being the first of the month, I was impressed by the sizable congregation of musicians who showed up yesterday (3/4/2012) and everyone appeared to enjoy them. One of my guests went crazy after seeing all the desserts and ended up tasting quite a few, declared them the best desserts ever offered (particularly at a buffet setting) and rattled off a list of friends that would need to be introduced to The Mansion. I always tell friends that The Mansion is a great 'secret' to share with out-of-town visitors (locals as well) because, although the furnishings are always amazing, fun and changing, it's the 'spirit' of the house that never changes and is always exciting and "H" and Ted are the ultimate hosts. My only regret was that certain design 'miracles' that I had hoped to share with my guests were unavailable due to the occupancy of B&B guests. Oh well, it just means another visit!”


Jeffrey Litton on Mar 4, 2012 said:

“Awesome experience at The Mansion! It was our mothers 86th Birthday Brunch and we couldn't have picked a better place! The food was superb. Of course every square inch of the place is covered with interesting things to look at and to buy so we spent several hours going through the place. When we took items to the front to pay for them we found out that on your birthday you get a dollar credit for every year you've kept your body alive. My Mom took the 86 dollar credit and was delighted to walk out with a beautiful vase and salt and pepper shaker set! What fun to discover the hidden passages and secret doorways!”


Tour Guest on Mar 4, 2012 said:

Gina Ellison on Feb 27, 2012 said:

“Firstly, I'd like to thank the reservations staff who helped my friend and I get seats to the show on Monday the 27th. I'd bought the groupon deal and misunderstood the booking rules. I really appreciate that the staff was able to find us seats even though the Illusions show was booked as of Friday the 24th. Secondly, I've only moved up to DC and been living here for the past six months and I'm constantly finding that there are gem attractions all over the city-- Mansion on O is definitely one of them! The staff is amazing, the entertainers were a blast; and the decorations, rooms and architecture were stunning! I definitely did not spend enough time exploring the building before the show and I plan on returning and bringing more friends! Thanks for an amazing and memorable experience!”


Lisa Roberts on Feb 27, 2012 said:

“Everything was great, and everyone enjoyed exploring the Mansion, especially the "first-timers." The Drag Show is fantastic, it's a wonderful addition to the Monday night dinners...I kept thinking, it's a Monday night and I'm sitting in this amazing setting handing bills to Whitney Houston and Barbra Streisand while they strut and sing, it was great! Of course, I will be back and look forward to it...thank you!”

“We had a great time! Excellent performance, ladies!”


Tour Guest on Feb 27, 2012 said:

“The mansion is really cool and definitely a unique place to visit in DC. There's a lot of fun kitschy things (like hats and guitars) throughout the place that make for cute props in photos. It was also fun trying to find the secret doors/passageways, though sometimes looking for them was frustrating (hence why I gave four stars instead of five). It would have been nice to have a handout with hints for finding them (my group only found about four doors). Also, the food and deserts smelled and looked REALLY yummy, but I didn't try any; I suggest you try them out!”


Illusions Guest on Feb 27, 2012 said:

“A unique and delightful idea for a "nationality" brunch! the food was, as always, superb. The atmosphere is exciting, and the service very promt, courtiess, and extremely helpful. it was a great break fro mthe traditional Sunday Brunch but still with the basic amenities of eggs (almost any way), waffles, and a variety of pastries, cakes, puddings, and flan! Anoher great shift consideration to not only satisfy the pallet but pleae the eyes as well! Thank you!”

The rooms were quite bizarre, but that added to the fun of exploring, you never knew what you would find next! Thank you for the fun day, we will be back!”


Tour Guest on Feb 19, 2012 said:

“Enjoyed our Valentine's Day dinner and scavenger hunt. The staff were very pleasant, the food was good, and exploring the house was a lot of fun!”

“This was my first trip to the Mansion, but definitely not my last. It was introduced to me by a friend who is also a huge fan of JD Souther, so I got tickets for his Feb. 13 show. As for the musical portion of the evening, I was blown away by the intimate venue. It felt like JD was singing among friends in his living room. And I guess, when you think about it ... he was! Getting the opportunity to chat with the JD after the show was something I hadn't expected. Everything felt very laid back. I wanted the evening to last forever. Then I got to visit the rest of the Mansion. How had I never heard about this place? Every single room, chock full of the most interesting pieces -- it feels like the love child of a museum and a one-of-a-kind show! I could go on and on about the actual items, and their flare and their power to ignite all sorts of conversation, but what I also liked was the openness that reigned in the Mansion. I really did feel welcome there -- you don't get that feeling in many places. I cannot stop talking about it now, which is probably how I found out that my friend had his bachelor party there 21 years ago, and how my other friend has had office Christmas parties there. Thanks for all the work and love that goes into making your place what it is. It is my new dream destination.”


Jeff Dickerson on Feb 14, 2012 said:

“Fantastic intimate setting and perhaps the perfect venue for select talent. Looking around during the show, it reminded me of an old time night club. The chandeliers in the concert room were really nice and added something special to the experience.”


Fritzi Alwin on Feb 14, 2012 said:

“Great show as usual!!”


Bill Cusmano on Feb 14, 2012 said:

“Aside from everything else that is said about the Mansion and it's wonders, from the silly to the sublime, I always am reminded that it is a home -- the owners live there, some of the spaces are let to long-term residents, and it is a second home to an astounding roster of poets and troubadours. You can't buy that feeling. That kind of hospitality goes far beyond the thread-counts of the sheets.”


Rashid Zaman on Feb 14, 2012 said:

“Scintillating experience, extraordinary ambiance and an amazing host. Leave the ordinary behind, O Street is way above the normal. Allow at least 2 hours to explore the mysterious maze, artifacts and musical masterpieces.”


Tour Guest on Feb 14, 2012 said:

“We really enjoyed it! The mansion makes a perfect date night activity! Thanks!”


Bill Freedman on Feb 13, 2012 said:

“What a terrific evening. The place was remarkable to explore, the staff was attentive and courteous, and, of course, the performance was intimate and absolutely remarkable. I'll be back!”

Avi Galanti on Feb 12, 2012 said:

“Thank you so much, Ted, for sharing the Beatles, Queen, and Bruce Springsteen last night with us in the music room. We enjoyed our time at the mansion very much and will be sure to tell our friends about what a fantastic time we had.”

“Very nice and delicious!”


Tim Telling / Carlyle Stunkard on Jan 31, 2012 said:

“It was a magical stay. Scensory overload will require that we return to see what we missed the first time. Hillary's attention to our confort was outstanding. Dinner was healthy, flavorful and timed perfectly. The room was quiet and comfortable. Would loved to have spent more time.”


K. Wade on Jan 31, 2012 said:

“Everyone had a really wonderful time - they loved the venue, and they absolutely can't wait to go back. Many of them have commented that they're planning to take their spouses to one of the public events.”

Tour Guest on Jan 29, 2012 said:

“What a unique, inspirational experience. With so much eye candy there's too much to see on just one visit. I look forward to visiting again with one of my friends.”


Barbara R. Hoover on Jan 29, 2012 said:

“This was our third visit to the Mansion and, I am sure, we'll be back again. Each visit has been a different and wonderful experience for us as well as friends to whom we have introduced it. What makes it even more special is the fact that it was home to my husband for nine months when he moved to Washington in 1961 for his first job. What an experience to wander the halls fifty years later and be part of history in the makings!”


K. Collins on Jan 29, 2012 said:

“Dallas Wayne did a great concert. It was really nice to get to hear him up close in an intimate setting. This was our first time at the mansion and we loved it. What an interesting museum. The staff were very friendly also.”


Dave Hopkins on Jan 26, 2012 said:

“Having been to the mansion before I had predisposed feelings about the place. I have to say that those feelings were reinforced with last nights Champagne Tour. The mansion is a wonderfully eclectic and elegant facility, filled with fantastic kitsch and memorabilia from past & present eras. It screams DC to me, and I just love it. I've been coming here for over 18 years, and like any fine vintage, it's getting better with age. The staff is friendly, so very courteous, and simply loves the place; and that shows. When hanging around you feel very warm and welcomed. I would love to see or hear some more of the history of the facility, the story behind its inception, the original owners of the 5 houses, the legend of the sisters and more. Placards placed around like historical landmarks in a park may be one way. The only other thing I can think of at the moment is the primary signage for things like "This is not a secret door" and "Guests are staying in this room, please don't open the door". I would love to see these done in a more eccentric way, something more fitting to the house and her character. Try this. Take a brown paper shopping bag, cut it about the same size as a sheet of printer paper. Using a script or Olde English font, print the sign verbiage on to that paper. Then, tear and burn the edges of the paper to give it that aged look. Use a lighter to burn the edges, and an iron to tint the paper it self. Onion paper also works very well for this and is available at most craft shops. No matter what, please keep doing what you are doing, I just love coming here.”

“My favorite rooms were the log cabin, John Lennon, and country. I plan to return for tea and a scavnger hunt with my grandchildren! Beautiful! Oh, and I mention the wine cellar? Cool!”


Whitney Soenksen on Jan 24, 2012 said:

“My friend Jess and I loved the Mansion! It was experiential and fun... with all the 'hands off' activities in Washington it was awesome being able to touch and actually laugh out loud. I'd definitely come again. What a gem!”


Tour Guest on Jan 24, 2012 said:

“We had a lot of fun. We're looking forward to coming back for a dinner or a party.”


Tour Guest on Jan 23, 2012 said:

Caroline Hunter on Jan 23, 2012 said:

“The girls had a ball at the birthday party. They were delighted to explore, listen to fun music and enjoy delicious desserts with their friends. Many thanks, we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Many of us plan to come back soon.”


Tour Guest on Jan 22, 2012 said:

“The self-guided tour was great as are the people at the mansion.”


Jayne Miller on Jan 22, 2012 said:

“This was the perfect activity for entertaining a friend from out of town. It's the sort of hidden gem that makes you feel like a real DC native for knowing about and exploring. We definitely wanted to know about the passageways and rooms that we missed on our exploration, so it would have been nice to have a map with a few of the big ones marked - definitely not all of them, because that takes away some of the excitement of finding one on your own. But at least a few to enjoy while we were making our way through.”


Kate Hornyan on Jan 22, 2012 said:

“I had a wonderful time at the Mansion! Having lived in DC for just about 7 years, I had always known about the Mansion but never took the time to stop in. It is a wonderfully fun way to spend an afternoon with a friend and I look forward to coming back with more friends and to try to find more hidden doors! Definitely fun for all ages.”


Holly Sapp on Jan 21, 2012 said:

“I had my daughter's 12th birthday party at The Mansion. We decided to do a scavenger hunt and numerology. We were not disappointed. The Mansion is like no other place. Unique in every way. With all the secret doors and hidden stairwells, it's a GREAT place to spend an afternoon. Eclectic collections of guitars, art, vintage hats, purses, books, albums, you name it, it's here. The staff are very friendly and welcoming and the only rooms off limits are the ones that have guests. It was really a treat and I look forward to our next visit, which will include a meal. Thank you so much for everything!”


Tour Guest on Jan 20, 2012 said:

“The house was astounding. i plan on coming back just to be there and relax. The vibe of the house is very comforting to me. I enjoyed playing pool in the billiard room the most! The band was lovely, just nice people overall :)They let me play the potato :) I enjoyed the butler/assistant who greeted us and spoke with us for a while, I cant quite remember his name. He had long brown hair. Thanks for a great Sunday.”


Hugh Huettner on Jan 19, 2012 said:

“My husband and I did the champagne tour and didn't know what to expect. It was so much fun. Nothing like it anywhere else. The champagne may have kicked my enjoyment up a notch, making me go with the flow- which is definitely something you have to do in the mansion. It's strange in a very good way, like one of those "Clue" movies, where guests get lost in the big, old house with secret doors everywhere. The eclectic assortment of do-dads, books, clothes, accessories, furniture and art of every kind made exploring so much more fun. I found a warthog tusk, a beautiful, hand knitted shawl (only $20!), a great $10 purse and an impossible-to-find record I've been looking for years. It was like a treasure hunt. The assortment of things wasn't dusty or mildewy and it didn't smell like moth balls or "old"...and it wasn't set up like a store, it was just like a really interesting person's overstuffed house and you got free-range to look through closets and drawers and everything else...how cool is that?! The fanciful hats are high-dollar fashion, and for sale (at like $100-$200 a pop for some) but you're welcome to try them on. I'll definitely be bringing my friends. Fun afternoon! We took about 2 hours to soak it in.”


Christine Wells on Jan 18, 2012 said:

“Super! Very fun to go poke around, get lost, and explore, trying to find secret doors. Staff were very nice and helpful.”


Tea Guest on Jan 15, 2012 said:

“The ambiance in the tea area is delightful. Having the hats available was so much fun, especially for the boys when they were included as well. This was my second visit in two months and I am looking forward to another in the near future.”


Tour Guest on Jan 15, 2012 said:

“great fun!”


Deborah Waggoner on Jan 14, 2012 said:

“Wish I had checked this place out sooner - such a fun place to bring those who visit me in DC! The only thing I would suggest is maybe giving a few more hints as to where some of the secret doors are. We only found 3 or 4 and that seemed to be what most others found as well...Overall, a must-do if you enjoy something out of the ordinary.”


Tour Guest on Jan 14, 2012 said:

“Staff very pleasant and helpful”


Tour Guest on Jan 12, 2012 said:

“It was fun and exciting and unusual! Yes, I will come back again and also tell my friends about it. So many things to look at and talk about and share but I only found 4 hidden doors. Oh well, maybe next time I'll be luckier.”

Joesph Ostrzyzek on Jan 7, 2012 said:

“Very interestinig with a lot of discussion on the make up of the rooms and its character. An oppurtunity that cannot be missed. Once in a life time adventure for the entire family to enjoy.”


Tour Guest on Jan 7, 2012 said:

“The O street mansion is truly a hidden gem in the heart of the city. It was such an amazing experience and I felt like Alice in wonderland. recommended to all - tourists and locals alike. It is a must see place. My personal favorite is the log cabin suite...truly authentic and unique!”

Megan Burkhart on Jan 1, 2012 said:

“we loved the mansion!! it was a perfect + very fun way to ring in the new year. i had two very hungry guys in tow and they enjoyed the abundance of delicious foods + fun tour of the mansion - - even better, we didn't have to wait for any of it, since we made the reservation online! the only thing that could have been improved was the crepe/omelet station - i heard some grumblings about waiting a long time. but for me, the coffee was delicious, there were plenty of healthy items to choose from, and i happily enjoyed a sliver of delicious tiramisu at the end of the meal. thank you!!”


Party Guest on Jan 1, 2012 said:

“I thought the New Year's Eve Party was very excellent. Beyond the obvious appeal of being at the Mansion in general and the fun of exploring the place, it was so nice to be at a party that wasn't crowded. I find the bar menu to have a wide range of great options and the service was excellent. The DJ played a nice variety and was very attentive to requests. My only constructive criticism would be to maybe have a coat check rather than having people hang their own coats, as I could see how that could get confusing at the end of the evening. Other than that, everything was great, and I would highly recommend this or any other event at the Mansion to my friends.”
