“One of the greatest Museum experiences ever!!!! Planning a Private Cocktail Party there in the near future....the experience was a BLAST!!!!!”


Robin Orwant on Aug 10, 2018 said:

“So much fun! We could have kept looking for days. What an awesome find!”


Andrew P Carroll on Aug 9, 2018 said:

“As a native Washingtonian who only learned about the Mansion a year or so ago, I now consider it to be the greatest "secret" in Washington. And since there's so much to explore, I hope to come back time and time again. I also brought visitors from out of town with me, and, despite having toured numerous other well-known sites in DC, they thought the Mansion was by far the best!”

“We enjoyed it ”


Jordan Andrew on Aug 1, 2018 said:

“Amazing mansion ”


Pamela Riddle on Aug 1, 2018 said:

“Really unique and unusual museum. We spent a few hours searching through the house and stayed for the magic show afterwards. All in all a pleasant experience that I would highly recommend if you like unusual homes, collections, and secret passages ”


Vincent Jefferson on Jul 31, 2018 said:

“It already sounds like an adventure, but the real thing is so much more than expected! Amazing experience! Talking to the host really enlightened us to the history of the house and the experiences others had here. Not only is it gorgeous, fun, and interesting, but also impactful on the community and those you visit. Amazing experience. Oh, and discovering the doors is a lot more difficult than you think! Five stars! ”


Arnav Sastry on Jul 30, 2018 said:

“Fantastic art, memorabilia, books and knickknacks all over. Well worth a visit, super unique. ”


Veronica Gunn on Jul 30, 2018 said:

“Really cool and unique experience! ”


Shawn Murrell on Jul 30, 2018 said:

“I wasn't sure what to expect, but I loved my time here! I'd definitely go back the next time I'm in DC. ”


Stacie Scott on Jul 30, 2018 said:

“It was an incredible experience, not anything that I expected. My 90 year old son in a 13 year old body loved it. We found out that looking for hidden doors was not the most intriguing thing about the museum, but all the STUFF to discover in each room. I would recommend this to anyone. ”


Kate Bailey on Jul 30, 2018 said:

“I'd always wanted to check out the mansion since I've lived in DC over a decade, and it definitely didn't disappoint! It was really fun to explore on our own and look for secret doors. I found more than I expected, and proved to my husband what a super sleuth I am! :) ”


Emma Morris on Jul 25, 2018 said:

“What an amazing place! Our 3 under 15's were really competitive with each other about finding the doors. 10 between us and we knew there would be a lot more that we didn't find. We had no idea what to expect but were not disappointed! ”


Secret Door Hunt Guest on Jul 25, 2018 said:

“We loved every minute of our time here. ”


Misty on Jul 25, 2018 said:

“This was one of the most fun things we have done in DC! A great break from museums, where you can't touch anything, to a place that invites you to touch and search for hidden doors and cubbies. We had such a wonderful time and plan to go back and bring friends. ”


Nicolette Seymour on Jul 25, 2018 said:

“We had an amazing time and found the perfect pieces to add to our home. Thank you so much for sharing the mansion with us! ”


Magic Show Guest on Jul 25, 2018 said:

“From the welcoming greeting at the door and introduction to the Mansion to the fantastic Magic Show, it was a magical experience for our granddaughter and us-a birthday present for her 6th birthday. She had a great time hunting for the secret doors (and reading all of the "this is not a secret door" signs!). When I went on the website to arrange for the secret door hunt to find out there was a MAGIC SHOW...Icing on the cake! It was her first (and she happened to get a magic show kit for her birthday, so she was "Primed." We all thoroughly enjoyed the magic show-he was personable and made it enjoyable for all ages. We had held our "after the wedding brunch" at the Mansion years ago and it was also a fabulous way to end that special week-end. The Mansion on O Street is a treasure for DC. Thank you! ”


Dante Gilmer on Jul 23, 2018 said:

“The show and the host were magnificent. Have more magic shows. Keep up the good work. ”


Secret Door Tour on Jul 23, 2018 said:

“My fiance and I had so much fun! The man who introduced us to the tour was so great, he was funny and welcoming. He explained how to look for secret doors without giving anything away and made us so excited to start! There was another girl working at the front who greeted us, upon chatting she told us she was doing an internship there. She was friendly and checked in on us a couple times during our tour. We love love love this place!!! ”


Kamyar Kadivar on Jul 23, 2018 said:

“Wonderful as always. The brief history of the Mansion given before the show was great to hear again... to remind us what an amazing treasure we have in our neighborhood. Thank you H & Ted. We had a great time. The Magic Show was very intimate and charming. ”


Jennifer Knipfer on Jul 23, 2018 said:

“We had so much fun looking for the secret doors. We found 16 of them (at least we think we did)! ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Jul 23, 2018 said:

“This was so much fun! A museum tour that's not boring; something for everyone. Plus, it brought up such great childhood memories, whether 50 or 20. Definitely a must activity when visiting DC. ”


Sherry Jahoda on Jul 21, 2018 said:

“I had an absolutely enchanting time with my granddaughter. The mystery of finding the hidden doors and the plethora of interesting objects heightened the experience. ”


Nadya Tretyakova on Jul 20, 2018 said:

“Great place to explore on a rainy day ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Jul 19, 2018 said:

“Fascinating fun place surprised you don't hear much about it. I found it on atlas obscure. Got all 3 of the red, white, and blue books. Fun insightful poems. ”


Nina Harmes on Jul 17, 2018 said:

“H and Ted were there and were so personable, both of them went out of their way to chat with us and make us feel welcome. ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Jul 15, 2018 said:

“This was a great time, definitely unexpected!! I will tell everyone to visit! ”


Cynthia Birdashaw on Jul 12, 2018 said:

“Every year we leave Florida in our RV and head out across the United States. We have covered all of the lower 48 states and almost every Canadian Province. My daughter lives in Washington DC, so we have also visited many times. Each time we try to see something new as well as the historic sites we have already visited. This year we found the Mansion and Museum on O Street and my daughter highly recommended we visit. Of the many places we have been, I must say that this ranked very high on my list of exceptional experiences. I loved the curiosities, the mystery and the surprises around every corner. I could easily have stayed all day and have already talked to my sister about returning. I'm confident that each visit will be a new experience. Love to all for this magical memory! ”


Rahul Krishna on Jul 9, 2018 said:

“Pretty awesome place will definitely go back ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jul 9, 2018 said:

“So fun! This is my second time visiting and found even more secret doors than last time! ”


Jonathan Fox on Jul 9, 2018 said:

“Fabulous venue! This was my first visit - though I have lived in DC for five years. We brought friends who have been in Mt Pleasant since 1982 and they had never been. Wow! I hope to be able bring friends together to celebrate a special occasion at the Mansion someday. ”


Michael Parrott on Jul 9, 2018 said:

“Awesome way to spend a few hours! ”


Rita on Jul 9, 2018 said:

“This was probably one of the coolest things I've ever experienced. I didn't want to leave! There are so many interesting artifacts and decor and so many rooms to venture through. Not to mention all the secret doors that you can find. My entire family including Grandma and all the kids had a blast! We all can't wait to return. We are on a mission to find all the secret doors! ”


Starr Arnett on Jul 7, 2018 said:

“So much fun exploring the O! ”


Janice Edwards on Jul 6, 2018 said:

Cevin Bryant on Jul 1, 2018 said:

“Very relaxing adventure, great for families. Hosts were very friendly and I would recommend to give it a go! ”


Royal Wedding Breakfast Guest on Jul 1, 2018 said:

“Absolutely delightful and charming. Loved the eclectic rooms, donated pieces for sale and the Royal Wedding breakfast was lovely. Took my mother for her birthday and she couldn't stop raving about it. Would love to go back again- don't think I had enough time to see everything lol! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 30, 2018 said:

“We had a great time. The staff was very very nice. Definitely will spread the word around for others to visit. ”


Tiffany Gales on Jun 29, 2018 said:

“The mansion is STUNNING! We only found 5 of the 70 hidden doors but the 5 we did find were truly magnificent! I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone visiting the DC area. ”


Emily Burelsmith on Jun 29, 2018 said:

“We had a blast! What a fun place! ”


Sheila Bechert on Jun 29, 2018 said:

Hayley on Jun 29, 2018 said:

“So much fun! Super interactive and extremely nice staff. The experience is definitely something that locals and tourists alike would enjoy! ”


Sisc Johnson on Jun 29, 2018 said:

“From the moment I entered the O, I fell in love. Every step you take inside is a step further away from all the stress and negativity in the world. Not only will your imagination run wild, but you will be inclined to and even enjoy, learning about everything inside and everything that went into making The Mansion on O Street the most fantastic place on earth. H, Ted, and the entire staff at O make sure that you know that you are someone special, and within moments, I had no trouble recognizing that they are the most spectacular people (hosts, historians, hospitality pros, artists, culinary masters, and music buffs) I have ever met. For arts, music, culinary experiences, history, shopping, and the best time of your life, visit The Mansion on O Street. I have had the privilege of organizing and participating in a corporate retreat, attending Sunday brunches, concerts, and tours, and with every visit, I leave understanding that it was indeed an honor to experience the O. Not only are H and Ted the most amazing and influential people in my life, but their guests are some of the most interesting people too. Spend some time getting to know the place, the people, and the abundant history, that surrounds you, and you will fall in love. My life is more enriched, my mind broadened, and my heart is so much fuller because of the people and my experiences at The Mansion on O Street. Love you guys!!! ”


Mya Juliet Kyaw (Juliet) on Jun 27, 2018 said:

“I didn't know this trip was special until I realized I get to talk to the museum owner, H! Talking to H, who leads an interesting and eccentric life, was amazing. ”


Benjamin Joel Breboneria on Jun 27, 2018 said:

“It was an amazing experience. Not only because of the place itself but also it's cause. Aside from that, all the staff are all nice people especially Ted. Just so nice and professional. A must try. ”


Carolyn Rudd on Jun 27, 2018 said:

“You know how to throw a party! Several of my guests had not been inside the mansion/museum and were so pleased to have had that opportunity. The food was absolutely superb! The dessert display was award winning!! Just unbelievable. You have truly done a fantastic job with the celebration! ”


Vincent B. Orange, CEO, D.C. Chamber of Commerce on Jun 27, 2018 said:

“You and your staff were outstanding. The food, music, decor and the O Museum were excellent. The event was extremely successful and enjoyable because of the love and tender care you put into this historical magical experience. ”


Tom Cornett on Jun 27, 2018 said:

“Go to the Mansion with an open mind and sense of adventure. One could get lost literally and figuratively in this amazing space. This experience is much more than finding the hidden doors. For me, it was hearing fascinating stories, meeting new and interesting new people, and even finding solitude - all in one and 1/2 hours. You will want more time to explore, but don't get lost in the memorabilia and forget to look for doors as I did! ”


Coral Oylear on Jun 25, 2018 said:

“The volunteers and staff were amazing! The house is wonderful and we found 8 doors! That was really fun. ”


Anima LaVoy on Jun 25, 2018 said:

“What a one-of-a-kind wonderland. This place is filled with evidence of moments in American history and nuggets from the big personalities that lived them. Along with many others visiting the mansion last Saturday afternoon, my family and I spent two hours exploring a sprawling set of five townhouses FILLED to the brim with memorabilia of other people's lives. In an odd twist, everything is for sale - and I mean everything. Miss USA 1988 Tiara? For sale. Old comic books? For sale. Pewter warthog sculpture with caffeinated glass eyeballs? For sale, but sadly just out of my range. Ted met us at the start and gave us a brief history of the house, and how it has grown over many decades. He described the nonprofit programming, including music jams and short-term and long-term housing for resident "heroes" (including, for many years, Rosa Parks). Ted was very attentive, pointing out stories of artists and musicians in every corner and making the place come to life. He gave us a tour of a special hidden room I would NEVER have found on my own. Grab a drink at the bar and enjoy a weird wonderful afternoon here! ”


Sarah O'Keefe on Jun 25, 2018 said:

“Endless hours of exploring and fun to be had here! Such a fascinating story behind this place and the owners are wonderful. Highly recommend! ”


Ursula Kirchner on Jun 20, 2018 said:

“Awesome hosts even if they had a major conference going on next door to main brownstone. Mrs H gave us a personal introduction and told us her history and what famous people have been in residence. She gave us only one hint to start us off that there was one hidden door in the room we were in. My husband found it quickly and we were off. Haven't had so much fun in a long time! ”


Mikiah Taylor on Jun 20, 2018 said:

“This tour was awesome and filled with a bunch of secret doors. My 10 year old son absolutely loved it and asked me to give the highest review possible ”


Robert Knights on Jun 20, 2018 said:

“I have to say I was rather blown away by this experience. The sheer amount of rooms and all of the history associated with what is within the house is amazing! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 12, 2018 said:

“Superior FUN!!!! Started out enjoying all paraphernalia in various rooms and quickly shifted to where are the doors mentality? ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Jun 7, 2018 said:

“Appreciated the architecture and the docent was great (Iso I believe). A fun way to spend a rainy afternoon. ”


Airbnb Tour Guest on Jun 7, 2018 said:

“Yesterday we visited the Mansion with little idea of what to really expect. I had planned this for my partner's birthday so he really had no idea what we were doing when we turned up at what seemed like a normal house. Once we arrived we were greeted and given a little introduction to the house itself and then let free to explore for ourselves. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the mystery that it entailed. We would definitely recommend this to everyone. ”


Mansion Event Guest on Jun 7, 2018 said:

“Each time I come to the Mansion I am always in awe. The concert was everything an intimate performance should be. There was humor, back stories of the music, audience engagement and great cohesion of sound from the music being played. Two songs in particular will forever more stay on my mind. One was the story of a failed marriage and the other was a tribute of a man who happened to be a husband and father. The song wove those three elements of his life into sentimental lyrics about his wife and two daughters. In as much as I enjoyed the concert my awe came from another aspect of the Mansion. You see I got another chance to stumble upon another treasure that has been right in front of my face. Like many who visit the Mansion there is so much to see. Often you pass right by something the first, second or even the tenth time. On yesterday I got a chance to really see the Mansion in all its glory. I saw depth of beauty mixed in with the gumption to even envision such a place as O Mansion. I got a real insight of how "rock and roll" flows through the blood of O Mansion. Like no other time that I visited has my entire body been engulfed with the passion and sensitivity once you walk into the Mansion. This time my visit left me with a wonderment that rendered me speechless. Even though my mouth was wide open in amazement. For the first time I saw a portrait painting of you and the photos used by the artist. So if you ask me how was the concert. I would say it was "a great way to spend the evening." But if you ask me about the visit to the Mansion. I will tell you "it was the best time I have ever had there." Thanks for the memories. ”


Mansion Event Guest on Jun 6, 2018 said:

“We had an amazing night. Paul and the team were absolutely fantastic. We really appreciate everything you and the team did. - We really enjoyed the treasure hunt - the team got very involved and Paul had to call us all back to have dinner - no one wanted to give up until they found absolutely everything! ”


Denise on May 31, 2018 said:

“The man who gave us our orientation before the tour was awesome! He made us feel like we had known him all of our lives and he connected with our kids, too! He certainly made our experience very positive from the start. I wanted to make sure that he was recognized for his great interpersonal skills! Our kids (ages 13 and 9) really enjoyed the experience. We had a great time as a family. Something definitely different for our kids to experience since we go to Washington, DC every year. ”


Mansion Event Guest on May 23, 2018 said:

“Just a quick note to say thank you for Saturday's Event. We got rave reviews and a good time was had by all! Truly a memorable experience. Hopefully we can work together in the future. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 18, 2018 said:

“Enjoyed hearing about the Mansion's history and exploring the rooms! ”


Lauren S on May 11, 2018 said:

“This was by far the best thing we did during our visit to DC! It was so unique and we loved looking at all the antiques. It was amazing how it was a functional hotel with real kitchens and bathrooms amidst all the secret doors, stairways and stacks of stuff. We will definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area. Thanks for the great experience! ”


April Watkins - Drag Show Guest on May 10, 2018 said:

“The show was awesome and the small setting made the experience priceless. Thank you again to the performers and the Mansion on O Street. ”


Debbie Steward on May 10, 2018 said:

“Very interesting and fun self tour. ”


Laurie Kramer on May 9, 2018 said:

“Food was FANTASTIC! Signature cocktail was FANTASTIC! Ted was a great speaker for the history of the mansion. The mansion itself is beautiful, weird, and wonderful! Many thanks to H and Ted and their staff. It was truly a memorable experience enjoyed by all. ”


Sarah on May 9, 2018 said:

“The event staff on the day of went above and beyond to make sure my family had a great time and that this day was special. We had a wonderful baby shower lunch. Thanks everyone! ”


Tammy & Wyatt Wilson on May 9, 2018 said:

“We heard about the Mansion from a friend that had been the day before and they told us about all of the music related themes and guitars, so since my son is a guitar player, too, we decided to check it out. We did the Secret Door Tour and found about 11 doors and my son got to play one of his idol's guitars. The mansion was the highlight of his trip to Washington DC. We had a great time and hope to get to go back some day. ”


Hillarie Ryann Hudson on May 9, 2018 said:

“Such a cool and unique experience. After you get done with all the traditional touristy things in DC, we were looking for something different to do. The mansion was perfect! Loved looking for hidden doors. ”


Beverly Whittington on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“Wonderful day, saw and learned so much almost felt educational... ”


Cheryl B on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“I was looking for something different to do in DC on a rainy afternoon and after an online search on many sites came upon the Mansion on O Street. I have lived in the area for almost 60 years and never heard of this place. It looked interesting and like it might be fun so I signed up with a friend for a visit. It was indeed a fun and interesting way to spend a few hours exploring this very different mansion with crazy collections of all sorts of paintings, books, memorabilia and very cool hotel rooms and suites for rent. It would be fun to have a group event here. ”


Penthouse Tour Guest on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“Terrific tour from well-informed docent. Plan to recommend it to others. ”


Marlene Voelker on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“Staff had a wonderful time. Thank you for making it special. ”


John Sheehy on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“An absolutely wonderful experience. I brought my parents while they were visiting, in order to stay away from the crowds at the mall, and we were not disappointed. It's fascinating and strange and fun, and everyone who worked there, from the cleaning staff to the chef in the kitchen were delightful. A can't miss whether you're in town for the weekend or have been living in DC for your whole life. ”


Katharine Owens on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“This was my third visit and I have found 18 doors. Also I finally found my way into the 5th townhouse. I was thrilled to finally find it. H and Ted went out of their way to look for an item I have been thinking about for over a year. I am very appreciative of their effort. I absolutely love my new art. I will visit again. I have to find more doors! I will also be donating my own artwork. ”


Tara Meade on Apr 18, 2018 said:

“We had a wonderful time. I've told so many friends about you. ”


Secret Door Hunt Guest on Apr 4, 2018 said:

“I had no idea what to expect, and I was so pleasantly surprised. I can't wait to come back and hopefully stay the night. I brought my parents and nieces, and we all had so much fun. Thank you for such a truly magical place! ”


Donna Millet on Apr 4, 2018 said:

“We brought our Grand kids (13 and 16) and they had a great time! They are still talking about the secret doors and everything else. We also really enjoyed the Mexican restaurant that H recommended. ”


Mansion Event Guest on Apr 2, 2018 said:

“Everything was absolutely amazing. Start to finish just fabulous. Food and chef was great. My friends and family enjoyed themselves immensely. Thank you all for a wonderful event!!!! ”


Karen on Apr 1, 2018 said:

“Its always amazing to explore the mansion. Thank you for the magical experience. This has been my third or fourth time and there is always so much to see. ”


Jason Perrine on Apr 1, 2018 said:

“It was awesome. Fun to see all the memorabilia, something different around every corner. My kids had a blast searching for the hidden doors and getting lost. Atmosphere was relaxed and happy, great tunes were playing constantly. Will certainly be visiting again, and stay for a night or two! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 1, 2018 said:

“This was so cool - I'll definitely be back, and would love to go to an event in the wine cellar some day. ”


Secret Door Hunt Guest on Apr 1, 2018 said:

“It was a ton of fun! We found 13 doors ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Apr 1, 2018 said:

“It was one of the most fun and unique places I've ever visited. My two smart nieces were super sleuths on finding the secret doors. Going through the doors was like stepping into another worlds. ”


Hannah W on Mar 20, 2018 said:

“I surprised my friend with a ticket to O Street Museum for her birthday, and we had an absolute blast! We wish we could've found more secret doors... but we will be back! So excited to have found this gem - can't wait to share with other DC friends and visitors. ”


Character, Not Characters Exhibit Opening Guest on Mar 20, 2018 said:

“Every event at the Mansion is unique and that's why I like to come ”


Laura Johnson on Mar 20, 2018 said:

“We are DMV natives, but had never been to the mansion. We had a great time exploring this eccentric place! ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Mar 20, 2018 said:

“Our group of 8 (4 kids and 4 adults) had so much fun exploring rooms and secret doors. I was looking for the perfect best kept secret and this was it! The youngest in our party (9) mentioned several times that this was so much fun! They tired out after about an hour but I could have kept on exploring the mansion! My husband is already talking about it being a cool place to take some clients in the future! Thanks for a great time! ”


Carol Cakir on Mar 18, 2018 said:

“Mr Spero gave me a fascinating tour of his incredible home. I completely understood the ethos of how this building has been presented. I would highly recommend booking a tour here, and then allowing lots of time to explore and take in the atmosphere after your tour, revisiting the rooms in turn and contemplating the surroundings. If Mr & Mrs Spero ever visit London I recommend they go to the Sir John Soanes Museum. A very famous architect of his time from humble beginnings, who was also a great collector and his family house & wonders are there for all to enjoy ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Mar 18, 2018 said:

“Exceeded expectations. Anthony did a great job explaining the diverse history of The Mansion and my wife and I enjoyed walking through, seeing all of the memorabilia, and finding secret doors. ”


Jacki Gannon on Mar 18, 2018 said:

“We did not know what to expect when we booked this venue as part of our management team retreat. We were WOW'd! I was given the description of there's no place like this on the planet -- and truly it is just that. We had a wonderful time touring the rooms, looking for secret doors and having engaging conversation about memories evoked by seeing some of the items on display. We will recommend this venue again and again to our colleagues. Well done! ”


Ally on Mar 18, 2018 said:

“This was the coolest museum we've ever been to! We went for the secret doors but definitely stayed for the amazing collection of things they have around the mansion. We could have spent our whole day there learning and exploring. Definitely will be back next time we come to the area! ”


Adam Brock on Mar 18, 2018 said:

“Had a lot of fun. Having a list of items to search for definitely made the experience more enjoyable. ”


Priscilla Glasow on Mar 8, 2018 said:

“We had a grand time at the Mansion on O Street! We have lived in the area for 24 years and had never heard of it. Ted explained that they stay off the radar, so we count ourselves very fortunate to have found it! It was difficult to focus on the list of things to find because there is so much to see. It's no wonder that people only find a handful of secret doors! While we were pretty hopeless with the list of things to find, we fared better with the secret doors - my husband found 5 and I found 3. It was such fun, especially for a life-long mystery reader such as myself. Of course, 3 out of 70 secret doors says I should go back to Nancy Drew! H. and Ted were very welcoming and it was fascinating to learn how The Mansion on O came about. Their focus on creativity, the arts, and the blessings they have been given made it such a lovely and fun day. ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Feb 28, 2018 said:

“I really enjoyed myself and can't wait to return ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Feb 27, 2018 said:

“We just wanted once again to tell you how much we enjoyed this tour! The other touristy museums are great, of course - but this one was a true treasure! We so enjoyed touring and looking for all of the "secrets of the mansion" - and the memorabilia was so much fun to view and to photograph!! Thank you so much again for opening this very special place for the public's enjoyment!! You made our anniversary trip so much more special!! ”


Mary Rank on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“It was really fun and interesting, a bit overwhelming, but in a good way. ”


David Schwartz on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“My friends and I loved exploring The Mansion. We already decided that we are going back the next time we are in DC. My brother might see if he can do his 21st birthday there. I recommend this before all else. ”


Karen Moss on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“From the outside, the O Mansion appears to be a series of ordinary brownstones, but it is truly the most idiosyncratic museum I have ever visited! It contains history (Rosa Parks, J. Edgar Hoover and many others have stayed here), mystery (there are over 70 hidden doors), elegance and kitsch. Many rooms look like a giant flea market, and everything is for sale. And I mean everything -- from dusty old paperbacks to a dress Audrey Hepburn wore in "My Fair Lady"! We wandered around exploring in absolute delight for close to three hours! ”


Maggie Ratigan on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“We came here to celebrate our mom's 70th birthday and had a WONDERFUL time! Such a unique experience - a MUST if you're looking to do something other than monuments & museums. We also had the honor of meeting one of the owners, H! Will definitely be back again to find more secret doors :) ”


Heritage Beer Tour Guest on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“We had a great time at The Mansion, there was lots to see and it was fun looking for all the hidden entrances. I thought two hours was enough time to see everything that was accessible. The mansion was very clean too, it didn't have a musty smell despite all the old decor, books and trinkets. ”


Leslie on Feb 21, 2018 said:

“AMAZING!!!!!!! ”

Champagne Tour Guest on Jan 25, 2018 said:

“It's a wonderful place to get lost in If you're tired of wandering, pick a comfy couch to sit on and read a book. There are books galore! As I ventured through the mansion, I learned about H.H. Leonard, the founder, through her books and from the staff. She's an inspiration, and you see that throughout the space. I will definitely be back! ”


Susan Gallagher on Jan 25, 2018 said:

“Our first time at the Mansion on O Street to see a band we love - Lez Zeppelin. It was a perfect experience. We found easy on-street parking about a block away. Arrived a little before the "doors open" time of 6 pm, and were allowed to go right in and save out seats. The band was practicing, so that was a nice perk. We took a walk and ate a nice dinner in the first place we came to - also a block away. Came back and had plenty of time to explore the museum and have a drink before the music started. The Mansion is full of interesting stuff, and no nook or cranny is off-limits. The hotel rooms are beautiful. And the concert space and music were great - as always with Lez Zeppelin. I hope the mansion adds more concerts, and we can't wait to go back - to see Lez Zeppelin and hopefully others. ”


Oliver Dziggel on Jan 25, 2018 said:

“I loved the show, and was pleased to attend the sound check. I loved the entire property - certainly a unique venue in the world of hospitality as well as performance space. ”

Lez Zepplin - Intimate Music Experience Guest on Jan 25, 2018 said:

“Your place is awesome, filled with so many crazy and interesting things, it would take days to see them all. I loved walking into the mansion, hearing the Beatles, seeing electric guitars in every room, photos of Janis Joplin, Jimi, Prince, Beatles photos which I had never seen in my life and so much more and then, to sit down in a chandelier filled room to watch an intimate, rocking, acoustic version of Led Zeppelin songs played by accomplished female musicians with the audience in a sing along. WOW. It doesn't get much better than this! ”

John Leary – Hotel Executive on Jan 11, 2018 said:

“I'm back in the office this morning and all my Team can talk about is our visit to the O Museum which did in fact inspire our imagination. It's interesting that even in an industry as creative and exciting as hotel design, it's easy to lose touch with our "inner selves". Kenny's poem absolutely blew my mind as he is one of our most technical and pragmatic team members. I feel particularly grateful that you were able to spend so much time with us. Your insights into the museum and the wonderful magic that frequently occurs there were fascinating. I'm a closet musician and I fully understand and appreciate the universal power of music so the museum held a special meaning for me. I still visit Strawberry Fields every time I'm in NY on business. ”


Michelle Parrish on Jan 10, 2018 said:

“I had a total blast. I enjoyed the expertly curated spaces. It was truly an exciting experience. I can't wait to return. ”


Arlene Gimovsky on Dec 27, 2017 said:

“Mere words cannot do justice to my feelings regarding the Mansion on O Street. It would be inadequate to say how fabulous my daughter's wedding was. The event was pure joy from the moment we arrived 4 days prior to the wedding day to our reluctant departure 2 days following the evening. It was obvious that everyone on staff, from H and Ted to the Chef and to the Interns love what they do every day and take enormous pride in providing their guests with the best experience imaginable. Whatever I envisioned for the wedding was far exceeded by the actual event. Every detail was perfect; the ceremony room was intimate, the cocktail hour was flowing with food and drink, the dinner was beautifully prepared, and the dessert table was the ultimate in extravagance. The DJ kept our guests on their feet, and the lipsologist provided a unique entertainment experience. The bride and groom were ecstatic, the guests were awed and no one wanted to leave. Personally, I would move right into the Mansion and stay there forever if they let me! ”


Bryan Dombrowski on Dec 19, 2017 said:

Amanda Woolard on Dec 3, 2017 said:

“https://youtu.be/tDKxeaXOAoY Let's see...a little about myself. I'm from NC and the only thing I love more than singing karaoke and making up my own lyrics would be my job. I am the Director of Admissions for a Therapeutic Boarding school located in the mountains of NC and it is so amazing and rewarding to know that every day we get an opportunity to help heal students and their families. I found my way to The Mansion as part of a hosted reception/event that was taking place while many of us were in town for a conference. I wasn't sure what to expect, but they had me at treasure hunt and secret doors. I love that The Mansion encourages creativity, challenges you to see beyond what's in front of you, and allows you to "get lost"! It was the first time in a very long time where I wasn't concerned about calls, emails, and text messages, but rather, I was able to enjoy those I was with and enjoy the gift of an unforgettable experience. Thanks for all you do! ”


Teresa on Dec 3, 2017 said:

“My family is most grateful for our Thanksgiving lunch at the Mansion on O. It was truly a wonderfully unique experience. This Thanksgiving, there were only four of us, and having our Thanksgiving meal in an expansive 19th century townhouse where others gathered to share the grand and delicious buffet, felt like we were celebrating with family and friends. We enjoyed the large selection of foods; including vegan, gluten free, and a children's section. After lunch, we pilgrims embarked on a journey throughout the mansion of united townhouses adorned with artifacts and all kinds of paraphernalia. The hidden wine cellar, log cabin suite, luxury wooden bathrooms, the working photo booth, and trying to find the 67 secret passage ways, were among are favorites. A big thank you to H, Ted, and their entire staff for sharing a very special Thanksgiving Day with us. ”


Rob Sheehan on Nov 25, 2017 said:

“The food was delicious. I only wish I could have stayed there all day and eaten. My niece and nephew loved wandering around the place. They didn't want to leave either. ”

Alvin Stenzel on Oct 2, 2017 said:

“After the great 125th Anniversary Building Concert and Celebration, I went on YouTube and watched other performances by the artists. I was struck by the differences between the performances at O Street compared to their other performances, even the ones at the White House. The intimacy of the performances at O Street was worlds beyond what I saw on YouTube. The quality of the performances was not different, but the "feel" at O Street was so much more powerful. I think that speaks to many things about O Street, especially to the affection the artists have for H and Ted and the Mansion. I believe that when we talk about performances at O Street, that should always be mentioned . . . that an audience can almost assuredly expect to see aspects of the artists that they would not see in a larger, less personal venue. I love it at The Mansion and O Museum! ”


Nancy B on Oct 1, 2017 said:

“We had a great time - the grandkids were totally occupied looking for the secret doors and the adults enjoyed the champagne and hidden treasures! ”


Erica on Oct 1, 2017 said:

Jim Nunally on Sep 28, 2017 said:

“We had to leave early on Thursday before anyone was up and about. As busy as we were I was unable to really enjoy the Mansion as much as I wish I could have. If I could have had another week I would have written at least one song inspired by your books H. Those insightful prose are inspiring. I especially liked the one I think was on page 62 or 63 about not being to blame for what happens to you as a child, that is a powerful message. Thank you for: Your caring Your kindness Your appreciation Your knowledge Your understanding Your support Your inspiration Your sharing Your open hearts For being yourselves. With love and appreciation. May the sun shine to brighten your days. ”

Jeffrey Streed on Sep 17, 2017 said:

“Just amazing. We stayed two hours but could have stayed two more. It was rich and creative. We found 7 of 70 secret doors and felt pretty good about ourselves! And the idea of sharing the space with rooms for short and long term guests and artists is such a open and trusting. We will definitely be coming back and sending our friends too. Thanks for being there! ”

Elizabeth Miller on Aug 28, 2017 said:

“I've been to the mansion several times with multiple groups. My guests did have a blast. I appreciated that there weren't too many ppl in the mansion. Just enough that I could mention here and there to someone leaving a room that I found a secret door in there and their face would light up and they would venture back to look harder. I will continue to bring guests to the mansion for many years. ”


Amanda Nave on Aug 22, 2017 said:

Barrett Caldwell on Aug 17, 2017 said:

“A fantastic and intimate evening of great music, both very familiar and quite excitingly new. I have seen Esperanza twice before, and this is by far the most relaxed and "tuned in" that I have seen her, allowing me to appreciate what a profound talent she is. I had never heard Leni Stern before, but now I want to go and buy some / most (all?) of her albums. Of course, JD Souther's songs are iconic and pervasive, but his stories and his soul weaving them was a particular joy. Again, I had never heard Ida before, but her voice (and the spot-on accuracy of the duets with JD) was a true treat. ”


Carolyn Howell on Aug 17, 2017 said:

“The concert was a true phenomenon. In that intimate setting we were both entertained and transported away. Thank you to you and Ted. ”

“Friendly staff, cozy setting, good acoustics, and outstanding performance! ”


Christopher Latterell on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“Inspired indeed! Both the setting and the artists were simply extraordinary! What we found so charming and intimate, was the way the people in the audience -- friends and personal business contacts of Ted & H -- made the setting and the overall night something never to be forgotten. Speaking with the artists, engaging and encapsulating their music, their storytelling in a way that made it feel like Home for EVERYBODY. A truly gorgeous and fluid evening of laughter, shared expression and WHoa... AMAZING treats, sweets and devilish chocolate!! Thank you Ted & H., it meant a lot to share such a moment with you and your tribe of artists and humans! ”

Virginia Goodwin on Aug 14, 2017 said:

“Our visit to The O Mansion was a delightful experience. It was well worth the trip from Atlanta. The history of the Mansion, the amazing decor mixed with nostalgia, celebrity memorabilia, and the festive ambiance were unique and captivating. One visit can only provide a glimpse into a world reminiscent of T.S. Elliot's initial Invitation through the wardrobe. H provides a unique venue for authors, artists, collectors, musicians, brides and grooms and celebrants to enjoy those special moments in an unbelievably almost surreal "world". One visit is surely not enough. ”

Teri on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“I was looking for something fun and different to do with my 86 year old mother and happened upon your Groupon ad. When I picked her up, all I told her was she had to wear walking shoes. She's an adventurous soul so she changed her shoes and we were off. On the metro, mom kept eyeing the map trying to figure out where we might end up but I wouldn't tell. On the short walk over from Dupont Circle she mentioned she hadn't been in the area in years but that we were near where her mother went to finishing school in the 1920s (the Colonial School for Girls). At the mansion, we were ushered to the bar to start our Champaign tour by H herself (what a lovely woman!). What an adventure we had! Every room and corridor was overflowing with creative charm. We had such fun talking about all the wonderful art, antiques, books, and knick-nacks. The crystal chandeliers were beautiful! Although we found only a few of the secret doors, the hunt brought out the sleuth in both of us. Thank you for a very special mother/daughter adventure day at the O Mansion. ”


Victoria on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“My husband and I had so much fun looking through each room and finding the hidden doors. We found about 9 of them so we want to come back another time soon and find more. The staff was informative and pleasant. Highly recommend this place and we will absolutely tell others of our experience. ”

Sydney on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“A great experience for our first time! We came to celebrate our anniversary and it was a fun way to explore and work as a team and be surprised! We wish we could have had more hints or clues to find more doors - it was difficult but we found 8! Great, great experience! ”


Ashley Storm on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“We had a wonderful time! We loved how eclectic the mansion is and how each time it's different! Its a place that if you wait for a bit and return, it's entirely new! Would highly recommend. ”

Mansion Tour Guest on Jul 25, 2017 said:

“Thank you! We truly enjoyed our visit! This has been one of our favorite experiences in D.C. so far. We took a Monuments by Moonlight tour last night on an Old Town Trolley. We were picked up by the driver at our hotel and we rode alone with him for a while. He asked us what we'd done and we told him about The Mansion. He hadn't heard of it before! He was interested and researched it on his phone while we were off at one of the monuments. By the end of the tour, he was recommending it to the whole bus! ”

“What an amazing imagination to create this wonderful place. Could have spent hours looking at vinyl or old Life Magazines (comics too). We took some really fun candids. Staff was friendly and informative. Enjoyed the bluegrass music. Met other interesting guests wandering. Love that all the items were for sale and many of the proceeds go to the foundation. We'd definitely come back and try the specific treasure hunts based on theme. We had a great afternoon! ”


Richard B. Rosenblatt on Jul 17, 2017 said:

Hannah Hansen on Jul 12, 2017 said:

“Moved to DC a few months ago, and by far one of the best date night activities. Lack of crowds, exploration, and the feeling of being cut off from the outside world- so refreshing! I didn't think I would actually shop either... next time I really am bringing my shopping bags! ”

Getting to know H through her relaxed and welcoming hospitality was an equal delight! Kindness, wisdom, character strength, and beauty radiate through the Mansion's visionary founder and hostess. My family and I keep thinking of events that will bring us back...treasure hunt, sleepovers, birthday parties, fundraising dinners, corporate retreats, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this as a Must-See Washington Museum! ”

She had such a great time that now her teenage son and our mom want to visit to try and beat the 8 doors that she and I found! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful building and all of its treasures! ”

William Kinsman on Apr 10, 2017 said:

“I can't believe that a place like the O-street mansion exists. It seems like a hidden treasure and a must see of D.C.. The O-street mansions is one of the best places in D.C. to see the history and culture of the city encapsulated. Its incredible charm and unusual layout makes the experience of spending time in the hotel engrossing. I had such a great time on the tour searching for the rooms where certain musicians stayed or Looking for hidden doorways that I had to go through all the floor twice to make sure I did't miss everything! The hotel not only seems like it would be an incredibly fun place to stay but also it seemed like the staff - who were incredibly welcoming - managed to let people explore the hotel on their own without impinging on the privacy of those staying there. I also really admired how open and welcoming the mansion is with it's residency programs for artists and heroes which hosted Rosa Parks for many years as a resident! I! am really glad to have found out about the O street mansion. I only have praise for the staff and owners who have managed to create an incredibly unique experience that is welcoming to both those who wish to stay there and those who attend the museum tours or the events that are held there regularly. ”


Ann Beasley on Apr 3, 2017 said:

“We enjoyed our visit to the Mansion. We come to D.C. Each year for business And have seen most of the monuments and museums over time. This was something different and fun.

We were just amazed at the accumulation of noteworthy, silly, serious items, Janis Joplin's death certificate, guitars signed-we found the Springsteen one, dolls of all shapes and sizes, paintings, so much and ALL FOR SALE. I can't wait to go again! And I will bring all my visitors to this place, a DC landmark for sure. ”

“Brought my niece there for the self tour and glass of champagne. We so enjoyed roaming the house and the history. All the lightening was amazing to think it was all donated. The guest rooms were fun and quite special in their decorations. The thoughts of having events there seem special and fun!!! The hidden wine and dinning room was so great. I can see having a small special dinner in there for sure. It was also very informative to speak to you and your husband of the love and work that was put into the home. Will definitively pass along the tours to my friends to come and visit. Also a special thanks for letting us leave our car at your lot while we went off to have lunch. Thanks again for a fun couple of hours. ”

Self-Guided Tour Guest on Mar 2, 2017 said:

“Really fun to see this hidden museum of DC. Plus, it wasn't too crowded, which was a huge plus. Walking through as self-guided visitors was the way to experience this place. Being self-guided allowed you to spend more time in areas that interested you, and let you find hidden passages, rather than having them pointed out to you, which was more challenging and made it more interesting. I think it would also be fun to come visit at a private party/event. ”


Graciela & Leigh on Mar 1, 2017 said:

“What a wonderful find in DC! We had a wonderful time exploring and observing all the things this place has to offer. We wished we could have stayed there for longer than we did, and will definitely come back if we're back in the area! ”

Everyone had a great time and we look forward to many future visits. Patron comments - Great and unusual trip to a most interesting place. Truly enjoyed it. This trip was unique and informative. The knowledge that Rosa Parks lived there was new information for me. Wonderful! Spectacular - lovely. Different and tons of fun. Thank you! Really neat, unexpected experience. It was amazing. ”


Jon & Jennifer Worman on Feb 26, 2017 said:

“For so long we have heard wonderful things about the Mansion on O Street and we finally were able to experience it for ourselves. To say we absolutely enjoyed it would be an understatement! From our unique and eclectic room (Garden Room) to the impeccable and friendly service, the Mansion gave us limitless possibilities. 22 hidden doors, compartments, and passages we found during our stay! Can't wait to come back and find the rest. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience, Mansion! ”

“This was my first visit to the mansion and my expectations were more than met. After seeing the mansion on a TV show on travel channel I decided to check it out for myself. I brought my boyfriend with me and we had a magical day exploring the Mansion. It was fun to do something different for a change and explore a piece of history. We both love music and very much enjoyed all the different items in the mansion that showcase so much music history. We actually managed to find 5 hidden doors and were very proud of ourselves. We hope to return again and hope to one time stay the night at the magical mansion. Thank you so much. ”

Wine cellar might have been our favorite location but it is truly hard to choose. We would have loved to go out on unoccupied balconies and additional glasses of champagne were very pricey. But other than that, the entire experience was wonderful! ”

“Vinayak was very helpful and fun giving us the "need to know" speech at the beginning of our self-guided tour. My friend and I found seven of the hidden passages, mostly because we heard other people exclaiming over them. It would be cool to visit on a quiet day when you can just explore and look for the passages. I'll have to go back and look at all the items lying around, as this visit was more focused on the excitement of the treasure-hunt aspect. Definitely a cool place. ”


Laura Ewan on Jan 31, 2017 said:

I attended a party in the evening and recommended the mansion to everyone at the party as a place they must visit. When I arrived at work today, I told everyone I worked with to visit the mansion. It was surprising how many people have lived in the area for years and never visited the mansion. Visiting the mansion is a must do. It is on the top of my list of what I will recommend to people that visit DC. ”

You must be asked the same questions 100 X a day and yet your responses did not sound beaten down with repetitiveness but came out as sweet as the freshly baked cookies. I liked how I felt trusted to go around unsupervised and yet every so often there would be someone to attend to any question or need we had. I did not like that the cook told us where the secret door was. but we realize he was cooking up a storm. we had such a fun time finding them. I think we got 10. ”

“I signed up for the Champagne Tour. This was by far the most unique experience I've had in DC. I didn't quite know what to expect, having read just a bit about the history of the O Mansion. I found myself smiling all throughout the tour. I would've stayed longer if I didn't have to move my car! The only thing that would've made the experience better is to have the option of an audio tour to learn more about each room. I read some of the card plaques but was too distracted by the rooms themselves and looking for the secret doors. I got a little history fix lounging in the second story of the log cabin watching the short TV clips about the Mansion. I get that part of the point is the mystery and secrecy...just a little difficult for a "nosey rosey" such as myself! ”

“Good tidings from Deep in the Heart of Texas. I have just been still long enough to reflect on some of my late summer travels, and I must tell you that I am still getting vibrations of serenity & comfort from my August stay at the Mansion, and my time there with you & H. Thank you for making me feel like I am always most welcome, and that I'm as cool as Jackson Browne, or a host of the other true artists that find shelter & inspiration there. My best to you both on this Friday. Today I'll take delivery of the new Mystiquero record, and my own solo record, and I'll put them in the mail to y'all next week. Peace & Happiness on your house. Onward WW ”

“Our event far surpassed our expectations . Unfortunately a number of our guests were late due to traffic , but the staff were wonderful waiting for them and were able to adjust the schedule , so we were all able to enjoy a tour of the mansion , before sitting down to tea . And the tea ! Each course was more delicious than the preceding one. We just loved the presentation ... using different stations . This of course gave us the opportunity to move around and talk to each other which was just what we wanted . We were truly amazed when we saw the cake stands with the chocolate Capitol buildings , WOW . The cakes themselves were absolutely delicious, hard to choose a favourite. I had originally thought that we would be confined to one dining area so it came as a wonderful surprise to realise we would have a reception area , as well as the food stations , and a beautiful dining area, with a fantastically presented table . I know Roger had planned on coming down to meet with you again , but our time has not been our own with a lot of friends and family invites . So he plans on sending you his thoughts as soon as we are back in the UK. Thank you once again for making our event so memorable and special , Margaret ”


Hubbard, (Mrs.) Katlyn on Jul 18, 2016 said:

“Your staff was WONDERFUL!!!!!!!! I don't think there are enough words in the English language to describe them. Everyone had a great time and we LOVED the Museum. Most are already planning to come back. Thank you so much for seeing that we had a GREAT time and it really left a very, very good impression on our guests. I am sure that we will be back. We gave them your information to let them know who help us plan the event. We really told them that all we did was make the call and you pretty much handled everything else! So we were allowed to be guests and enjoy the event too. That was really outstanding! You will probably get some calls soon. I am definitely coming back again soon, even if it is just to bring my friends! - ”

Moore, (Ms.) Maria on May 22, 2016 said:

“We did the self-guided tour on a pretty day finally after so much rain here in the District. The staff is truly great and Veronica was knowledgeable, helpful and loves her job. After an introduction about this nonprofit we adventure by ourselves around the house, took us an hour and a half to wander around at our leisure. Only found like 10 hidden doors but it was fun. Love how the rooms are decorated and the antiques in it. Will come back! ? ”

People really enjoyed exploring the mansion, looking at all the fun items and artifacts displayed throughout the house and then had one of the most fantastic dinners we've ever had at an event venue. Our members were still complimenting the night and what a great time they had the next day. We would HIGHLY recommend The Mansion on O Street for your event, you won't regret it!

Wachtel, (Ms.) Jennifer on May 5, 2016 said:

“The Mansion on O Street was a wonderful break from the hustle and bustle of downtown DC. I came in a group of three and we all enjoyed discovering secret passageways and compartments (although we didn't even come close to finding all of them!). The philanthropic mission behind the mansion is truly inspiring and I will definitely recommend it to my colleagues. Wandering around five houses can be tiring, so I'm also really appreciative that the designers included chairs for visiting explorers in the floor plan! -Jen Wachtel ? ”

“Staying at the Mansion on O was like staying at a home away from home rather than a hotel. Entering the Mansion you immediately transported into an exhilarating, spiritual, quirky, surreal environment that makes you smile, make you reflective, surprises you, astounds you and opens your creative juices. When you check in you don't only get a key and code to the door but more importantly you immediately adopted into the Mansion family. My stay was the most relaxing stay I have ever had in any hotel and the most inspiring. Climbing the stairs to my room the "5th Dimension" was like taking a stairway to heaven. ? ”

Lin Self-Guided Tour guest on Apr 10, 2016 said:

“Our experience was wonderful. I have always loved secret passage ways from a young age. The room and designs are really fun to see especially the log cabin room (also love aquariums). We only found about 5 main secret passage ways (the bartender stated there were possibly 60) so i was expecting to find more. The only other downside is that we didn't get to see all of the rooms since guests were staying there but i guess this means we'll just have to come back. Thank you for the great experience!! ? ”


Alvin on Apr 5, 2016 said:

“Thank you, Ms. H and Ted for a truly memorable and magnificent experience. Last night was everything I could possibly have hoped for. Alto did a wonderful job on the tour and our chef was perfection. My most important guest said it was the best meal she had ever had. That could be an exaggeration, based on the overall experience, but I agree, it was an incomparable meal. ”

“We have just about come back down to earth after our whirlwind visit to Washington D.C. The entire experience was like a dream, beginning with our stay at the stunning Mansion on O Street which set the scene for what was truly the trip of a lifetime for our young musicians. The Mansion is simply the most amazing, unique and gorgeous hotel on earth; full of fascinating curiosities, with all the rooms so exquisitely decorated, we felt like royalty! Since we came home, the Mansion has been a real talking point, with everyone fascinated to know what made it so different and special. Thank goodness we had photos and videos! For us, it was a combination of Alison in Wonderland captivation and Louis X1V elegance, luxury and style; coupled with the warmth of your welcome and personable approach, that made staying there such a wonderful and memorable experience. Thank you for allowing us to have such an ideal space to rehearse in - this was essential for us in our final preparations for performing at the White House. Finally, a huge thank you for the very generous rate which made the entire trip possible. Sincere thanks and best wishes until the next time, Sharon and CBOI ”

From the special rooms, dinner, having Jessie Jackson at breakfast, Capitol Hill experience, and finally a tour with the FBI, you made everything wonderful. I believe that the groups favorite event was sitting with you and listening to the demo recordings. We appreciate you sharing that experience with us.”


Kelly, Bill on Mar 29, 2016 said:

“The Mansion on O is a Wonderland of visual and aural surprise and delight. In your wildest dreams, you have not imagined surroundings so eclectic, comfortable, lush, humorous, and over-the-top -- all of it at once homey and grand. It's a magic trick. It's a living museum. It's immersive theater in which the guest is the actor and the entire mansion is the stage. The Mansion and its lovable inhabitants embrace people, creativity, and community. I am already counting the friends to whom I will recommend it as a travel destination. ? ”


Brett, Michelle on Mar 27, 2016 said:

“It was a lot of fun and took every bit of 2 hrs. We only saw 6 secret doors out of a possible 60-70 so we were very disappointed. We were hoping for some kind of key to the layout of the mansion to help us find more rooms and doors. Overall it was great fun and we enjoyed our introduction by Michael. Kris ? ”

“Absolutely loved everything! The house(s) are amazing, a radical departure from anywhere I've ever stayed. The bed in the Fireplace room was like being at home, I slept incredibly well.

I will recommend to everyone I know! ? ”

“Janis Joplin would have loved this weird and whimsical house. It seemed like a cross between a hoarder's flea market, a Bates Hotel on Route 66, a Rock & Roll hangout, a luxury party venue, and a spy fantasy of hidden passageways thrown in for good measure. I couldn't get over how clean it was considering how packed it was with huge chandeliers, books, and stuff everywhere. The rooms looked comfortable and like a fun place to stay with family. I give it 5 stars for it's uniqueness. ? ”

We brought our friend who has lived in DC for 4 years and he had never heard of it! Loved that the staff shared their passion about this very cool place! Will definetely pass this travel tip along!! Next time i want to stay in the hotel and swim in your gorgeous pool! ? ”

“My first visit to the Mansion was for a corporate function in early in December. What a treat and I immediately thought of several people I knew would love a trip to the Mansion. I was absolutely delighted to find oyster plates on my first trip and gave them as Christmas gifts. On January 2nd, I shared this treasure with my husband and our close friends from Radford, VA. We spent several wonderful hours wandering through the rooms to see all the Mansion has to offer. My husband particularly enjoyed searching for and finding many of the secret doors! Many of our conversations began with I remember... or remember when! We have several other friends and relatives who will enjoy a trip to the Mansion. Thank you for a great way to begin the New Year! -- Karen Skeens ? ”

Siart Self-Guided Champagne Tour guest on Dec 31, 2015 said:

“I've been wanting to visit the O Street Mansion since I first heard about it a couple of years ago but just hadn't found time to go visit and also wasn't totally sure how interesting it would actually be. This year, for Christmas, I decided to get tickets for me and my family as a Christmas present (we did the self guided champagne tour). We had a BLAST looking through all the rooms, getting lost in the twists and turns of the house, and finding secret doors (we found 10 of the 70 in the house)! We were there for two hours exploring the house and definitely would have stayed longer if it wasn't closing. Also, everything in the Mansion can be purchased and my mom and sister found some interesting items that they ended up buying and taking home. We had so much fun and will definitely be back to find those other 60 secret doors :) We are also planning on returning to celebrate for New Year's Eve. If you are looking for a fun outing in DC that is not museum or monument based I would definitely recommend checking out the O Street Mansion! ? ”


Biles Self-Guided Tour guest on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“We had a great time. My kids had never been to the mansion before and they thought it was very cool. Hard to impress teenagers but you did! Love finding the hidden passageways and rooms. I tried to buy some chairs but they were sold, It is awesome that your inventory really moves. I will come back again soon to look around. The only suggestion I would make is When getting people started on their tour, self guided or other, tell them that when they find a hidden door (mirror or book case..) to close it quickly so it does not give it away for others looking. ? ”


Castonguay, Pascale on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“This was simply a magical place! It's truly a hidden gem. Or rather, gem upon gem upon gem! The food was fabulous and fresh and we felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. The valet knew who we we were and congratulated us on our engagement. I was continually amazed the entire day and we can't think of a better place for our wedding. Now we need to figure out logistics in the next week or 2 before we pick a date. But this place is everything I could have possibly wished for , and MORE! ? ”


Polanz Self-Guided Tour guest on Dec 27, 2015 said:

“It is one of my favorite place on earth! I travel the world and really, there is NOTHING like this mansion! I had a chance to meet the owners and tell them in person how grateful I am to be able to visit such a wonderful place. It is magical, inspiring, crazy, funny....I never get tired of going there. The staff is extremely generous and friendly. I mean how many mansions do you know that you can walk in any day?? I spent usually 3 to 4 hours marveling at the rooms and objects. So far, 10 secret passages found, but there are 70! I do always buy objects since I fully support their art program, read more about it! Artists live there! thank you thank you so much for making a secret mansion dream of mine come true!!!!!!!!Doe ? ”

“I had been planning this milestone birthday dinner party at the Mansion for months. From day one to the actual event, the entire process was smooth and painless. I was so nervous and anxious about the details as the date approached but my event planner Sally, was beyond patient and supportive. We had a dinner party in the wine cellar. The food was exquisite! The service exceeded my expectation! The mansion itself is such of an unique place with many different and interesting activities. My quests were beyond impressed . My event supervisor( Rogelio),and personal server(Astrid), were beyond attentive and made sure we lacked or wanted for nothing. I have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience and would highly recommended this venue for your next event be it something casual to an elegant dinner as I had. Will definitely come back to The Mansion on O street. Thank you for making my Birthday celebration unforgettable. ? ”

I certainly will return to The Mansion - an unforgettable place.Happy holidays and warmest regardsUlrike Bergner ? ”


T. Bruce on Dec 7, 2015 said:

“On behalf of everyone at Tempus Inc. I would like to say thank you for a wonderful night! We received great feedback from our guests both at the event and in our office today. Our guests were mesmerized by each object and secret passage way they could find in the Mansion. The food was phenomenal and I can certainly see why your pastry chef is one of the top 10 in the country :). I would also like to commend our event supervisor and his staff. I unfortunately did not get his card so forgive me for misspelling his name! Rogelio was an absolute delight to work with. He went above and beyond his call of duty and from observing the way he interacted with me, his staff, and our guests I can tell that he is a great leader. I wanted to arrive early for our event but wasn't able to due to traffic and unforeseen circumstances. Once I arrived (15 minutes prior to our guests arriving), Rogelio found me and we went through some last minute changes I wanted for our event. Instead of being flustered by the changes, Rogelio sprang into action and directed the staff to assist with our needs. Throughout the night he would check in on me to make sure our guests had everything we needed. He was vigilant and acutely aware of everything about our event and he even offered suggestions to make our night better ( Such as the location of our photo booth, moving our podium etc). Even though I only worked with him briefly, I can tell he has great character, amazing work ethic, and embodies the brand of the Mansion brilliantly. My boss, the General Counsel of our company, loved working with him as well. I would also like to thank Sally, the director of catering, H, and Ted for working with us as well. This was my first time planning a Holiday Party for our company and each one of them helped me throughout the process. I would love to thank them for their patience, answering my questions, and offering suggestions as well! The mansion has now become my go to place to show guests around when they come to DC. ”

Ferdinand, Frankie on Nov 17, 2015 said:

“The experience was better than what I imagined. From the greeting at the front door to us being walked over the bar for our champagne. We explored every floor and loved all the different themes that went throughout the mansion. There were hotel guests there so there were some restrictions about which rooms can or can't be entered. Other than that we enjoyed the experience and the secret rooms. ? ”

Sarah & Kate on Nov 16, 2015 said:

“Kate and I had an amazing night and our guests cannot stop raving about what fun they had and about how beautiful and incredible a place the Mansion is. You all did an amazing job setting up the space just as we wanted it, the food was plentiful and delicious, the bar was well stocked and your bartender a super nice guy, the staff was gracious and patient with our (by the end of the evening!) inebriated guests... In sum, we could not have asked for a more special evening. Also, you were all so accommodating with allowing us to spill into the entire first floor, I know the kids loved the extra space to run around in, and also with allowing us to drop our flowers off at the Mansion and assemble our centerpieces there. Thank you again. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable and stress free! We hope to be back soon! ? ”

I explored some but felt a bit shy looking for hidden doors. Maybe next time I'll go with a friend and discover more. ? ”


Yaworske, Cindy on Nov 11, 2015 said:

“Dinner was FANTASTIC! We ate in the wine room, which is lovely intimate room, perfect for a dinner for 10-12 people. The food was out of this world. Their French chef described everything on the menu and how it was being prepared. They were also able to accommodate our vegetarian guest. It was a lovely experience and I will definitely go back. A+ food, service, and venue!! ? ”


Yaworske, Cindy on Nov 11, 2015 said:

“Everything about the Mansion was wonderful. It's a truly unique venue for any kind of event. We loved it so much, we will go back again and again and again. And, they have the most incredibly helpful and friendly staff -- and the owners --- H and Ted - they are the host and hostess with the most-ess!!! LOVE them! The moment you enter the Mansion, you feel like you're part of the family!!! I'd HIGHLY recommend using the Mansion for a meeting, special occasion - or go, just for fun and see if you can find all of the hidden doors. Also a great place to find one of a kind gifts for that special someone!!!!! I'd give it 10 stars if it was an option!!! * * * * * * * * * * ? ”

The host and hostess were delightful. I met several new friends-in-music. I never, in my wildest dreams, thought I would get to hear Jack Tempchin play and sing, let alone meet him and speak with him in such an intimate setting. Truly, a night to remember. ? ”

As we only found six or seven of the secret doors, we will be looking forward to finding more on our next visit. This will definitely be an attraction that we direct out-of-town friends and relatives to visit. ? ”


Truss, (Ms.) Candy on Aug 6, 2015 said:

“The museum tour was phenominal!!!! The Gwendolyn Britt Senior Activity Center participants thoroughly enjoyed the visit! We searched and found the secret doors, which was a lot of fun. We explored the many bedrooms labeled by celebrities and they were simply beautiful! The items donated were all very interesting and many unique! The staff was very friendly and helpful! Our assigned informant, Veronica, was extraordinary in her delivery of information about the museum. She greeted us with a smile that made us feel very special and cared for! We conversated on the bus as we returned to the Center that we will bring our families and share with our friends the wealth of possessions and interest held in the museum! Thank you and we wish you continued success! ? ”

“I love that we found something unusual to do in dc since we have done all the tourist things for years. Feels like we found a gem hidden in the city. We only found 3 of the hidden passage ways so I guess being a spy is not in our future. Might be nice to provide some clues to guest who would like a little help finding them. Thanks ? ”

“To future visitors: Entrance is access to the entire hotel; passages to kitchens, hidden door to wine cellars, hidden doors to the penthouse suites, etc. You need to look for the hidden doors as you traverse all of the 4 floors and basement of this expansive building. While walking you will get lost and start to look at all the antiques and other eclectic items that are all both on display and for sale. ? ”


Georgia, Theresa on Jun 22, 2015 said:

“An SRO evening at the Mansion on O is to feel the weight of the world lift and a door to the universe of possibilities open wide - like being on the inside of a dazzling snow globe, while beautiful music swirls and floats through the air, finally settling into your soul.The Mansion on O is magnificent. The Mansion on O with Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos in the house is an evening of pure joy. Thank you all. ? ”

Simone Novaes-Card on Jun 9, 2015 said:

“We just had our wedding at the Mansion and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! It was like a fairy tale. Our guests loved the decor and the food, and of course the chance to explore the Mansion on their own for a little while! We found out after the fact that the Mansion was also hosting another wedding on the same day, and we never would have known, because the service was impeccable and the waitstaff were so responsive. They took care of every request we had, and were even able to make wonderful accommodations for several disabled guests. I would recommend the Mansion as an event venue to anyone who is willing to let go a little and allow the event planning staff to work their magic. They definitely know what they're doing! We stayed two nights in the Octagon Room, and really enjoyed the funky bathroom fixtures. The tub was pretty sweet! ”


Morgan Self-Guided Tour guest on Jun 7, 2015 said:

“We had a wonderful, fun, and inspiring time! Found 13 hidden doors, and enjoyed the d?cor and the unbelievable renovations.Thank you so much! I now have a unique destination / activity for out-of-town guests. ? ”


Scott Tait on Jun 4, 2015 said:

“Thank you again for creating a truly magical place. The Mansion is an oasis of love, creativity and challenge (in the best sense of the word) that is unparalleled. The look on my 5 year old daughter's face as she explored the music, art, food and architecture was wonderful. Seeing her cognitive dissonance as she wrestled with your answer to her question "why are there secret doors?" (you answered: "why shouldn't there be?") was both fantastic and more enduring than you might know - she has since answered every question with "well, why shouldn't there be?". I hope that question will permeate the rest of her life and I owe you the tuition of an ivy league college for it.”


Linda Faberman from Marriot International, on Jun 1, 2015 said:

Todd, (Mr.) Dwayne on Apr 24, 2015 said:

“Andreas and Darling were exceptional hosts. It was my wife and I's first time at the mansion, and it was one to remember. No question was silly. Our access in and out was easy. I felt vey secure. At one point I lost my wife in the building, and the staff actually helped me find her! They did everything to make us feel at home and comfortable. My room was very clean, and fully stocked with linens. If I had to find anything, perhaps the hot tub wasn't very hot.. Tho it was so cool to use, who cares! I haven't stopped talking about it to my friends since I went, and I will definitely return. Our room was the Garden Room, tho it seemed like we rented the whole place. We wandered around all night, and no one bothered us. Priceless experience. And the artist, Tom Constanten was great. He received us as friends, talked with us candidly. I just have nothing to compare it to! I hope you continue to get great music. Cheers! - Dwayne Todd ? ”


Kane, (Mrs.) Leigh on Apr 23, 2015 said:

“My daughter and I had a blast. Thoroughly enjoyed the music and a cocktail while we poked around the mansion. There is so much to see that we plan on a return visit. Our only regret is that we didn't find more secret passages. But we look forward to exploring the mansion again in the future. ? ”


Miles, (Ms.) Toni-Lynn on Apr 15, 2015 said:

“Lots of fun - SOOOO much to see! We kept forgetting to look for the secret doors because we were distracted looking at all of the cool items. We did find more than dozen once we knew that not all were "doors" in the strictest sense. Log cabin was our favorite guest room, and the wine 'cellar' was our favorite room. (we recommend visiting early to have the best chance of having the most guest rooms available to view!) Found several great books to purchase. Looking forward to returning - finding more doors and finding more books! Thank you for a wonderful creative time. ? ”


Basore Self-Guided Tour guest on Apr 15, 2015 said:

“This was my first time here, and I absolutely loved it! I want to come back and find more of the secret doors! It wasn't crowded at all (I stopped in on a Sunday), and the staff were very friendly and welcoming! ? ”


Appel, Donna on Apr 13, 2015 said:

“I thought the food was good, the service and staff were excellent and the mansion was out of this world crazy good. I can't wait to come back. I didn't even get a chance to explore 3/4 of what you have. It is an amazing place that anyone could visit and walk away with lots to share. What a hidden treasure this is. A real gem. Thank you for sharing it with me. All the best, Donna ? ”


Folliet, (Ms.) Anne on Apr 7, 2015 said:

“It was a pleasure working with Sally and H throughout the process. The party was everything I had hoped for. Eileen totally enjoyed herself and many of the guests commented to me that not only is the Mansion a great place, but all the staff were wonderful. I concur.

“Everyone in our party had a spectacular experience....I wish I could have afforded a treasure hunt for the kids - but it was just over my pocket book.. The food was wonderful - drinks & service superb - when friends visit from out of state, I definitely intend to have them visit "O" Mansion. Menu items were not to be believed, the variety, quality and quantity met everyone's expectations of a gracious and super tasty affair! Thanks so much - Best, Kim Steele ? ”
