“Highly Recommended for couples or groups!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2008

I stayed at the Secret Garden for my friend's bachelorette party in July 2008. This place was perfect! The location is excellent because of the proximity to nightlife and the beach; we didn't need our cars all weekend. There were 9 women in total and everyone was comfortable and extremely pleased with the accomodations. Breakfast is phenomenal! The house was pristine, and the hosts were ever so kind. Tom & Abe could not have been more personable.

Saw this had a few good reviews from 2007 and booked it based on these. We were not disappointed when we arrived and walked into the garden which is an oasis of calm. The guys who run this place, Tom and Abe, are great and make you feel really welcome. They also make a superb breakfast which varied each morning from croissants, fresh fruit and cakes to bacon, eggs, sausages and pancakes! The rooms are beautifully decorated and all with LCD TV, DVD player, air com and even lovely fluffy bathrobes!! At night time the garden becomes magical with lots of fairy lights and there is even a balcony upstairs from where you can sit and admire it. The location is unbeatable-right in the middle of things but far enough from the road so it is completly quiet. We were also able to borrow bikes for free and take them to the beach...there are 3 for guests to use as they please. This is a great B+B- couldn't think of a single fault.

What a hidden gem. This beautiful little B&B is tucked behind two other properties on Commercial Street. It's an absolute perfect location in the center of all the happenings on Commercial Street, but because it sits back off the street, you have your own little oasis. Tom and Abe are great hosts and I just loved staying with them.

My wife and I stayed at the Secret Garden Inn in early August. We were just looking to head down the cape for a weekend and this turned out to be the perfect place to stay. The Inn is right in the middle of everthing, immediately off of Commercial Street across from the town wharf. The great thing is that its set back behind a building or two and the property is surrounded by a high fence and overflowing with beautiful greenery so you instantly forget you are in the middle of downtown. The property is beautiful and lovingly cared after. You can tell that the owners, Abe' and Tom, really care about keeping a perfect inn and keeping their guests happy. Our room was quite nice and directly across from the bathroom. It was right next to the front door, but the sounds of people coming and going never filtered in. The next morning we had to skip breakfast because we had a little too much fun the night before, but it smelled great. We'll definately be back to this wonderful little find.

My husband and I stayed one night only and it was just wonderful. Tom was very gracious. Loved the little touches of hominess.
Perfect location for everything. Breakfast was delicious. Tom even dried our bathing suits in their dryer to use next day morning and we were able to leave our vehicle in the parking lot while we went walking in the town even after we checked out.
Definitely a place to stay when in P Town.

All of the reviews of the Secret Garden Inn are right on. The location is perfect if you want to be in the center of the action, but not right on top of it. Set back from the main road by a couple of buildings, it is definitely a hidden gem. Abe was an awesome host (and did admirably with the breakfast while Tom was away in NYC). We went as a family of four with my 6 year-old daughter and 1-month old son. We were just slightly worried about having a family in a B&B right on the main street, but our fears quickly vanished when Abe guided us by phone to the parking lot and then met us out front with his dog, Chloe. He was great with the kids, and made us feel very much at home. The room, though small, was very clean and comfortable. My daughter absolutely loved the place ... especially the garden. We will definitely stay there again on our next visit.

My partner and I couldn't have had a better time. Abe and Tom were gracious hosts. We didn't want to leave and ended up staying an extra night! The rooms are charming and so clean and cozy. The breakfast was delicious and we kept looking around the house for Martha Stewart because everything including the food was amazing. Maybe she was in the flower garden which was just was beautiful and peaceful. I can't wait to return to the Secret Garden Inn.
