“Fantastic experience! The house is fascinating and the scavenger hunt a fun challenge. I wish I had arrived promptly at 5:30 when it started — ”


Namiot Penthouse Tour guest on Sep 3, 2013 said:

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


Hardin, Dave on Aug 29, 2013 said:

“Staying at the Mansion is like visiting an old friend. You always feel welcome. The atmosphere and experiences can't be found elsewhere. If you're a music fan this is your place. I'll always come back anytime I'm in DC. Ted and H are the ultimate hosts! — ”

Gonzalez, Susan on Aug 21, 2013 said:

“We made reservations for mustache Monday and had such a wonderful time, especially since my husband won the contest for finding the hidden item and winning the T-shirt. It was his birthday, so that made it extra special. The young lady (forgot her name) at the front desk was extra nice. We enjoyed the mansion so much that on our next visit to DC we will go again. Loved the hidden rooms and all the objects for sale. It was super cool. Thank you for help in making my husbands birthday special. Absolutely loved it.Susan and Luis Gonzalez — ”

Davison Treasure Hunt Tour guest on Aug 20, 2013 said:

“OMG! I've lived in DC for 15 years and never knew about this museum. Now I will have to make up for lost time. This museum is a gem, nothing like it anywhere else in the U.S. You have to experience it, to understand what it offers. Young and old will enjoy it. The items will delight.....the architecture will amaze....the enormity of the mansion will awe. AND --the secret doors and passageway will tickle your creative juices! My tween and teen daughters spent FIVE hours there on a scavenger hunt and we can't wait to return with friends. Just go. Don't even think about it. — ”


Mustache Mondays guest on Aug 16, 2013 said:

Brummitt, Nancy on Aug 16, 2013 said:

McDevitt Treasure Hunt Tour on Aug 13, 2013 said:

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


Lehman, Augusta on Aug 12, 2013 said:

Georgia, Terry on Aug 10, 2013 said:

“Any visit to the Mansion on O is a special treat, but when the DesBerardos are singing in the house, it is a rare, fun and exceptionally wonderful time. The Mansion on O is always an adventure. Every nook and cranny, twist and turn is filled with awe-inpiring memorabilia, sensational decor and hospitality beyond your wildest imagination. And Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos are equally as memorable - every song, a musical joy ride. Two experiences not to be missed: The DesBerardos and the Mansion on O. Thank you for a memorable evening! — ”

Patrick, (Ms.) Wanda on Jul 30, 2013 said:

“Simply wonderful! It was a fabulous event. I invited several friends. They enjoyed searching for secret doors, exploring rooms, finding treasures, meeting new people of all ages, and of course, the glitz, glamour and media interest in the Beatles, Fab 4, unveiling. We're planning to attend other events and tell more friends about the beautiful Mansion on O Street. — ”

Conway Treasure Hunt Tour guest on Jul 29, 2013 said:

“My family and I had a wonderful time during our first trip to the Mansion. The experience of exploring lived up to my expectations, and we especially appreciated the "old" feel of the spaces. We got a kick our of all the juxtapositions, loved the creative painting (ceilings, for example), and the terrific interiors of the hotel rooms/baths. We will absolutely be back, and will bring more family and friends on future visits. Keep up this great venue! — ”


Graham, Robert on Jul 29, 2013 said:

“Very fun. The facilitator did a great job spreading things around and engaging people. I plan to become a regular. — ”


Self-Guided Tour guest on Jul 29, 2013 said:

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


Kaplan, (Ms.) Valerie on Jul 27, 2013 said:

“Delicious! It was my 2nd visit in the last two months, and a journey of discovery each time.At the Mansion, — ”

Vanessa Lemme - Tour Guest on Jul 25, 2013 said:

“I am an avid museum goer. By far, this is the most interesting museum I've been to in many years. The combination of art, antiques, memorabilia and ingenious interior design of the bathrooms and flat screen tv's and kitchens makes the venue a must stay. and secret treasure of DC! I will definitely return soon to take part in another secret door hunt! I'm determined to find a lot ore.”

Samoylin, (Mrs.) Tatiana on Jul 24, 2013 said:

Treasure Hunt Guest on Jul 24, 2013 said:

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


Beatles guest on Jul 24, 2013 said:

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


Beatles guest on Jul 23, 2013 said:

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


Neuman, (Mr.) Rick on Jul 23, 2013 said:

Caldera, (Mr.) Jose on Jul 23, 2013 said:

“This was my first visit to The Mansion on O Street. I did not know this hotel existed in my neighborhood. The self guided tour of the hotel with my friends was eventful. Our pictures with the Fab Four are memorable. Thank you for opening up your hotel to the public with a themed event. I would definitely return to The Mansion for themed events. Thank you. Warm regards, Jose Caldera — ”

Tea guest on Jul 22, 2013 said:

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

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

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


Buco, Margaret on Jul 16, 2013 said:

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


Social Tour guest on Jul 16, 2013 said:

“I have been coming to the mansion since the '00's and it is always fun. My friends and I used to come for drinks and then just wander around looking through all of the fun rooms. We found a new secret room so, it was extra special! — ”


Kahan, (Mr.) Jeff on Jul 15, 2013 said:

“I really enjoyed breakfasting at the Mansion prior to the Classical Revolution DC Jammin! The food was wonderful and the staff very professional and helpful (ie. me and my need for lots of tea through the morning). I'm looking forward to the experience again next month! — ”


Jammin guest on Jul 15, 2013 said:

Randall, John on Jul 13, 2013 said:

“Dear Ted and H, My stay at the Mansion was once again, magical. Eric took excellent care of me. I hadn't stayed in the Fireplace Suite before and really enjoyed the room. I purchased H's poetry books so that I don't have to come to the Mansion to enjoy them. Eric suggested that I bring them back for my next stay and get H to sign them, which I will do. Till next time, John Randall — ”

Showstoppers Guest on Jul 11, 2013 said:

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

Dennis, (Ms.) Jasmine on Jul 8, 2013 said:

“The Mansion was a unique and wonderful surprise in the middle of the city. We had family visiting from Florida with two children (ages 6 and 8) who fell in love with the place. The kids loved finding secret doors to run back and share with the rest of the group. The adults loved finding the bar so we could wander around, taking our time with a cocktail. The staff were great and added to our experience. We've put the Mansion on our — ”


Fourth guest on Jul 5, 2013 said:

“The mansion was absolutely amazing! Each room was so uniquely decorated in its own style with its own chachkies. Visiting every room and looking for the secret doors felt like an adventure. I will definately be back to explore the mansion again! — ”

Self-Guided Tour Guest on Jul 1, 2013 said:

Everything is beautifully appointed and makes me feel very special to be there. It's hard to describe the uniqueness - you just have to experience it for yourself. Very highly recommended. - KH — ”

All our guests were in awe as the entered this enchanting and whimsical place. It set the perfect tone for a happy event to raise money for such a critically important cause to save lives of children with MPS. Our daughter was diagnosed with this rare degenerative disease as a baby and raising money for research has been a top priority since her diagnosis. We know that is the only way to save her. Although it has been a very difficult road for our young daughter we are determined to stay focused and get to a cure. We are so deeply grateful to the O Mansion owners and staff for generously sponsoring and hosting our Mad Hatter event in this fantastic venue. — ”

We will definitely be going back with a larger group. — ”

“The Mansion on O Street is a DC gem! I can't believe it took a Living Social deal for me to discover it, despite being a native Washingtonian. What an amazing place and fun experience! It made me want to book a weekend "secret" getaway in one of the wildly fascinating rooms. More people should know about this place and I plan to do my part telling people I know. My only recommendation would be to provide more hints on secret doors :-) — ”

Social Tour guest on May 24, 2013 said:

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

And we all enjoyed trying on the hats. — ”

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

The emcee was throwing massive amounts of shade, but rightfully so because she WORKED IT! If you decide to go to Showstoppers, bring some bills. We felt so terrible that we didn't have any cash on us, but we plan to go back soon! My mom will be getting divorced sometime this year and I am definitely taking her to Showstoppers to celebrate! — ”

I also loved that we were not rushed to eat or to get up to roam the Mansion or to leave, but rather encouraged to stay and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere.

Don - Mansion Member on Apr 15, 2013 said:

“The Mansion is such an Oasis of fun and enjoyment in Washington and there is nothing like it that I know of in the World. H and Ted are so blessed with their dedication and hard work to keep the Mansion every bit as good if not better than it was when I had my first thrill of experiencing the Mansion about 15 years ago. ”


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

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

Showstoppers guest on Apr 10, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Apr 10, 2013 said:

“I had the best time of my life. The back of my ears hurt so bad from laughing, smiling, singing and enjoying myself I will come back again and again. As I was called a double virgin so as a virgin this was the best 1st time experience ever! GREAT JOB and I love the mansion with awesome rooms and secret doors! You get a 10+ from me. ”


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

Meyer, (Ms.) Kathy on Apr 9, 2013 said:

“The O Mansion is such a fun place. The staff are all so welcoming and the Divas are phenomenal. This was my second time and I still haven't really explored the place to find the secret doors. Next time I'm wearing flats so I can roam the entire place. Kudos to to the chef because the salads were excellent and the desserts that I had were quite tasty. The eggplant was probably the best I have ever had ... would love to get the recipe. Thank you for a delightful evening. I will be back. ”


Showstoppers guest on Apr 9, 2013 said:

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


Suchocki Numerology Tour guest on Apr 6, 2013 said:

“It was a unique experience. I liked how we were able to tour and explore at our own pace. Finding the secret doors was fun, I can't wait to come back to find a few more! ”


De Freitas, (Mrs.) Colleen on Apr 5, 2013 said:

“My visit to the Mansion was another wonderful experience. My guests from the United Kingdom were charmed: the log cabin, the hidden doors, the wine cellar, etc., etc. We enjoyed the gastronomic experience, and for me the bread was simply the best.I look forward to return visits with my friends. ”

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

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


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

“We really had a great time. I had a group that ranged in age from 10 to 75 & you received rave reviews from everyone! My parents have spent their lives traveling the globe and said they had never seen anything like it. Thanks for letting us enjoy your treasure!”

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

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


Easter Brunch guest on Apr 1, 2013 said:

“Perfect Easter Sunday brunch--great food, fun ambiance, and amazing hats!”


Easter Brunch guest on Apr 1, 2013 said:

Mishele, (Ms.) Lynne on Apr 1, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Mar 31, 2013 said:

“We had a wonderful evening! The mansion is a really fun place to explore, the drink of the night is only $5, and the drag show was funny and well done.”


Lifshen, Michele on Mar 31, 2013 said:

Thanks again for a really special experience! - Michele Lifshen and Christopher Odum”

“fun! lots of surprises saved for next visit!”


Social Tour guest on Mar 30, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Mar 30, 2013 said:

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

Showstoppers guest on Mar 26, 2013 said:

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

Tucker, (Ms.) Monique on Mar 23, 2013 said:

“The mansion was AMAZING!!! Over 100 rooms each with a very unique decor. Secret rooms hidden behind shelves, mirrors and portraits. Something to ooh and ahh about at every turn. The show was AWESOME!!! The entertainers really gave their all to please the audience. I would definitely go again.”


Social Tour guest on Mar 22, 2013 said:

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


Showstoppers guest on Mar 22, 2013 said:

Social Tour guest on Mar 18, 2013 said:

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


Brunch guest on Mar 18, 2013 said:

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


New Member on Mar 18, 2013 said:

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


Hotel Guest on Mar 18, 2013 said:

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

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


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

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

Social Tour guest on Mar 12, 2013 said:

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

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

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

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


La Cunza, Carmela on Mar 4, 2013 said:

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


Tea guest on Mar 4, 2013 said:

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


Breakfast guest on Mar 4, 2013 said:

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


Social Tour guest on Mar 3, 2013 said:

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


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

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


Social Tour guest on Mar 3, 2013 said:

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


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

Showstoppers guest on Mar 1, 2013 said:

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


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

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

The Mansion On O is our little bit of heaven & we know we will be back again & again & again. Thanks H, Ted & staff for the memories & we hope you were happy with our donations.We will bring more the next time we visit. We know each experience will be unique & heavenly.

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

“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. ”

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.

“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.”

“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.

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:

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

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

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 :)”

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.

“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.”

“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”

“O Mansion is fabulous. So much to do. Everywhere you look there is new treasures that you can buy and interesting artifacts. So fun looking for the hidden doors.”


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. ”

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.”

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.”


Rachel McKinney - Showstoppers Show on Sep 14, 2012 said:

“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!”

“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.”

“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.”

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!”

“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.”

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.”
