“The Lez Zeppelin concert was fantastic ... unlike Ted, I never got to see Led Zep in concert, but tonight, when I closed my eyes and listened, I could have sworn that's where I was. Thank you for staging that! ? ”

“I brought my 19 yr old granddaughter for her first visit. We spent two hours meandering around all the rooms - and found seven hidden doors! A great visit! ? ”


Campbell, Loraine on Jan 5, 2016 said:

“Lovely Sunday brunch.would have been nice to see a few more options.ie oatmeal,cheese,cold meats. This was a truly unique experience. We came with our 22 year old son who said it was the highlight of our trip to Washington. He said everyone knows about the monuments and museum but this is a well kept secret. 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! ? ”

“Always a pleasure to explore the mansion. We will certainly be back to introduce others to this fun place! ? ”


Skeens, (Mrs.) Karen on Jan 3, 2016 said:

“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 ? ”

“Absolutely Beautiful! Always a treat to see over-the-top furnishings! ? ”


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. ? ”


Womack, (Mr.) John on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“We had a wonderful time. The whole place was very cool, and we had a blast hunting down secret doors while we sipped on champagne. We are already talking about coming back, but this time we want to stay there! ? ”


Etzkin, Lena on Dec 28, 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 ? ”


Liu, (Ms.) Christine on Dec 25, 2015 said:

“The museum was a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed the eccentric architecture and the individually themed rooms. If I get the chance, I would love to attend a masquerade party or a themed mystery dinner party. ? ”


Rooney, Judge Covette on Dec 24, 2015 said:

“The office Holiday Luncheon at the O Mansion was magnificent ! Veronica our hostess was such a pleasure. Meeting Mrs. H and hearing her story and what inspires her, was so very enlightening and a treat. It brought to light what is important in life. We were in awe as we toured the Mansion. What a treasure. We will be back and will continue to support the O Mansion. Thank you. Chief Judge Covette Rooney OSHRC ? ”


Crenshaw, Cynthia on Dec 10, 2015 said:

“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. ? ”


Bergner, (Mrs.) Ulrike on Dec 9, 2015 said:

“It was an honor to meet Mrs. H. Leonards and Mr. Ted Spero. The introduction to The Mansion was great. However, there was also a sweet young African American woman who received us so friendly and tried to make our stay pleasant. Thank you to all of you! 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. ”

“We had a great brunch and tour! Food was excellent, service was attentive and we really enjoyed exploring the mansion on the hunt for secret doors. ? ”


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. ? ”


Mcgill, Ann on Nov 16, 2015 said:

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! ? ”


S. Davis on Nov 16, 2015 said:

Schumann, (Dr.) Deborah on Nov 12, 2015 said:

“I went to OMansion to hear Freebo who is one of my favorite artists. It was my first time there and the experience was terrific. The hosts are welcoming and the mansion itself is incredible. 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!!! * * * * * * * * * * ? ”

Boskovic, Dan on Oct 16, 2015 said:

“I wasn't really sure what to expect since I've never been to the Mansion before this visit. The staff at the Mansion are willing to go the extra distance to make your stay a most memorable experience. I would highly recommend visiting the Mansion if you want a truly eclectic experience. Dan Boskovic Inverness, IL. ? ”


Becky Morrison on Oct 12, 2015 said:

Williamson, Mary Jane on Aug 18, 2015 said:

“The entire evening's experience was fantastic! It was my first visit to the mansion. I didn't get to explore it nearly as much as I would have liked. Still need to find a secret door! 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. ? ”


Nystrom, (Ms.) Zoe on Aug 13, 2015 said:

Cockrell Self-Guided Tour guest on Aug 12, 2015 said:

“My daughter and I really enjoyed our visit. There was so much to see that we are planning a return trip. I am sure that our next visit will be just as fascinating. 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! ? ”

SRO: Freebo guest on Jul 18, 2015 said:

“Singer-songwriter Freebo's performances just keep getting better and better. The room was just the right size to allow him to perform entirely acoustically -- it's a real treat to hear him without amplification. ? ”


Kincaid, Todd on Jul 14, 2015 said:

“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 ? ”

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. ? ”

Appel, (Ms.) Donna on Jun 22, 2015 said:

“O Mansion is truly a hidden treasure that we love love love to escape to. Listened to great music last night, up close and personal. There isn't anything like it that I have experienced before. Thank you for all your efforts and great performances that you bring to the public. We am forever grateful. Blessings, Don, Donna and Sammie too. ? ”


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 dcor 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:

“The service is top notch, the food is fabulous and the surroundings are something i've never seen in my life. the entire staff is friendly, warm and knowledgeable. its almost as if they cannot do enough for you.”

“Thank you for putting us in your Wine Cellar. It truly made for an amazing evening of intimate conversation and a most memorable occasion! The steaks were fantastic! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. ? ”


Baill, Cori on May 18, 2015 said:

“I'd give six stars if I could! Magical. Thank you. The entire staff was as wonderful as the hosts. And the mansion itself was transcendent. We felt like beloved relatives come calling. The location is perfect for any DC adventure though it's hardly necessary to leave the mansion to have a full exciting and delicious weekend. ? ”


Dillon, John on May 17, 2015 said:

“Last night was a magical evening in a magical wonderland with the intrepid founder H, the magical and inspiring Paul Williams accompanied by the melodious piano playing Caz! It was a night that I will never forget. ? ”


Fernandez, William on May 13, 2015 said:

“Everything was perfect as always, and everyone was polite and helpful. Thank you for being a part of our memorable moments. Warmest Regards, William ? ”


Hagerhorst, John on May 11, 2015 said:

“I loved it! I will definitely come for a return visit! So much beautiful art literally covering every inch of the walls, and the most interesting, beautiful and eclectic pieces I have ever seen in one place. I also plan to look into becoming a member. Thank you! John (Jac) Hagerhorst ? ”

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:

Thank you for sharing it with me. All the best, Donna ? ”

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 ? ”

Ted, giving us a tour of the Mansion was such a gift and appreciated more than I can say. My friends from Tampa were over the moon seeing the amazing, eclectic, one-of-a-kind O Mansion. As my mom says, "It's an experience all by itself." Our dinner was absolutely delicious, the personalized menu was so special and the celebration cakes the best...just like you all are! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Until next time.... Susan Collins ? ”


Corbett, Peter on Jan 8, 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!”


Sarah & Kate on Jan 1, 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.

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

“The Mansion was the perfect, unique venue for our daughter Rachel's Bat Mitzvah. Rachel and her friends had a wonderful time exploring the Mansion and dancing and playing games with the DJ. The adults were amazed not only by the decor of the Mansion, but by the fabulous food and desserts. The Mansion staff could not have been more accommodating and were great to work with throughout the planning process. Our immediate family stayed at the Mansion for the Bat Mitzvah and it was a weekend that we will all remember forever. I strongly recommend the Mansion to anyone who is looking for something different than a hotel or country club ball room for their child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah.”

“The baby shower I had planned was an amazing experience. Everyone was so helpful in making this special day the best. After we had set up in the room we were assigned, the event coordinator felt it was too cramped for everyone we had and they seamlessly moved us to a bigger room and allowed us to stay for a longer time to make up for that move. They continuously checked in on us and made sure everything was running smoothly. I definitely felt they went above and beyond and everyone had such an amazing time and I'm sure many people who came to the event will definitely be back to visits again! ? ”

“Once fallen under the alluring charm of the O Mansion, you are hooked forever. My wife and I celebrated Thanksgiving Day 2014 at the O and felt as though we were celebrating the holiday with family and friends. The warmth and welcoming atmosphere created by Ted and H, and the entire O staff, made our holiday one to remember for the ages. Our waitperson, Germain, was especially wonderful, as he was both friendly and personable, while at the same time being attentive and professional. Many thanks to Ted, H and everyone at the O. We'll be back soon! Cheers, John & Erin Caslione ? ”


Rebecca Bentzinger on Nov 14, 2014 said:

“I want you to know how much I appreciated all that you did for my reception this afternoon! I could not have asked for a more gracious welcome for my friends who came to bury their parents at Arlington National Cemetery. The food was perfect and Tom was attentive to all requests. Mr. Hayes checked in with us and gave my guests a lovely introduction and welcome to the Mansion. Needless to say, they marveled at the surroundings and explored the beautiful rooms. It always has been (perfect) for my events and this was no exception! I look forward to seeing you soon.? ”


Bartolomei, (Mrs.) Sonja on Nov 6, 2014 said:

“I really enjoyed meandering through the rooms looking for hidden doors meanwhile discovering lost treasures from my childhood, like Sesame Street and Betty Boop. The collection of signed guitars is amazing... and the hats! Wow! masquerade masks, a wholeroom dedicated to the Beatles. What a great adventure!Too much to do all in one day. I'll definitely have to come again. ? ”

Rotunno, (Dr.) Laura on Oct 24, 2014 said:

“We had a FANTASTIC time. The museum just gives and gives with each new step you take. As one of our group said: "I felt like I have seen nothing and EVERYTHING!!!!" And to be able just to relax and enjoy--it is such a great museum experience. Can't wait to come back to see all the new things and to find more and more secrets that are hidden in your corners!!!!Thank you for opening your home to us. ? ”

Hughes, (Mr.) Mark on Oct 24, 2014 said:

“Fabulous night. The Mansion on O Street is the hidden gem in the Washington music scene. Terrific venue, fun hosts, and a setting that is unsurpassed. Mix in great performers and you get an evening like no other. Many thanks. I will be back in 9 days for the next show. ? ”

Cunningham, (Mrs.) Sharon on Oct 20, 2014 said:

“Our tour was a howling great success!!! We had not been there before and did not know what to expect. We had a wonderful time and will be back. We did find at least seven doors (and I think it was really more) and found some very interesting rooms. We are even talking about spending the night there - that would be a real hoot!!!! Thankx for a grand time. Sharon and Poul Pedersen ? ”

Livingston, Karen on Oct 17, 2014 said:

“The staff at The Manion were WONDERFUL. Prior to our event in the preparation stage, we were a pretty demanding group with all of our changes and requests, and not once did the staff there let that interfere with their professionalism and quick response. During the event itself, they took their expertise to a whole new level. Andres received rave reviews from the attendees at our reception, as well as the entire staff the night of the event. I have been asked to ensure we use this venue again for future meeting requests. A big THANKS to everyone at the Mansion O for making our event an experience to remember and talk about! JOB WELL DONE! V/R Karen Livingston E.A., New York Life Insurance Company ? ”


Qadafi Self-Guided Tour guest on Oct 14, 2014 said:

“I LOVE the mansion on O street! I went last year with my friends and brought my boyfriend this year for his birthday. It is a truly unique DC experience!! Last time I discovered twenty secret doors, and this time I somehow found only ten, yet also found 3 new rooms!! What a mystery... ? ”


SRO: Berardo guest on Oct 11, 2014 said:

“Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos is always great fun and filled with high energy ....which is a perfect compliment to the creative intimacy of the Mansion.

SRO: Berardo guest on Oct 11, 2014 said:

“The talent and humor and energy of Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos in the intimate setting of the O Mansion exceeded our expectations. That group had the energy and enthusiasm (and groupies!) of a teenage band. Soulful. The music was at the perfect sound level, we cannot wait for the next show! MC ? ”

Michal Conger on Oct 7, 2014 said:

“I went to the mansion for the second time for Mustache Monday, which was a hilarious adventure. My first scavenger hunt here was fun, but the addition of mustaches, drinks and food made this one even better. I can't think of many more fun things to do on a Monday after work than discovering a secret room behind a bookcase while wearing a mustache that makes me feel like I'm in a cartoon detective show.The rooms have the best themes, too. There's a John Lennon room, a cabin room, a safari room, a billiards bar... we found new rooms this time and probably will never find them all.We also heard some fun history on the house itself, and found some old books and antiques. Almost everything in the house is for sale, so if you like antiquing, you can multitask. ;) My friend brought home a book, and I was tempted by several pieces of beautiful china.We'll definitely be back, especially for another mustache Monday! ? ”


Eric Safern on Oct 7, 2014 said:

“I stayed here last week, and will be staying again this week.I was very excited about my visit, based on what I'd heard - but the place exceeded my expectations.Imagine the quirkiest bed-and-breakfast you've ever seen - filled with weird and interesting furniture and objects, with classic rock playing in every room - Beatles, stones, paul simon, etc. etc. According to the owner, some of the music is unreleased demo and outtake tapes from their archives.If you're looking for the polished 4 star hotel experience - professional and swanky but a bit sterile - try the Marriott or the Westin instead. If you're looking for something a bit different, but still feels like a hotel - try a Kimpton. If you want something unique and non-corporate, try the Mansion, You'll feel more like a guest of your slightly batty aunt than a corporate drone looking for a quiet night's sleep... Everything is a bit different, right down to the plumbing, which was, for me, a really great deep soaking whirlpool tub and a fantastic shower housed in a telephone booth with six separate powerful jets. ? ”

“Absolutely perfect! ? ”


Inyang, (Mr.) Adam on Aug 26, 2014 said:

“It's extremely difficult to find anything wrong with The Mansion. I love the attention Ted pays to the guests. I also like the humility of the proprietors; they still take a very active part in the day-to-day operations of the business. The Mansion itself is a self-admitted wonder that needs no further glorification. It's frickin amazing. I'll be back several more times until i find at least 50 of those secret doors, and i'm bringing friends and family with me each time. ? ”


Ahern, Kelley on Aug 21, 2014 said:

“What a unique, happy, creative place! We had a great time! Yes, the Mansion on O is filled with one of a kind items and secret doors but (for me) it is mainly about gracious, inclusive people who invite you into their world and make you feel like one of their own. Trust me - you want to be included!! ? ”

“Oh my............where to begin. This was the absolute best show ever!! My cheeks hurt from laughing so hard, and I hadn't laughed like that in forever. The entertainment was beyond funny. The audience interaction was hysterical. The ladies of Drag kept us entertained the entire time. The Mansion O was also a one of a kind place like no other. We only had about an hour to do the scavenger hunt, because we lived so far away, however, we made the best of that time. There was so much to see, and so many things we missed. Next time, I'm coming back earlier, with more money for tips and to have dinner!! Kudos to the whole staff and Drag ladies who made the evening and our first time out without our son in years truly memorable. Plus my husband had the lip stick marks on both cheeks to prove he really is beyond a good sport. Thanks to all! Wendy ? ”


Salyers Self-Guided Tour guest on Aug 13, 2014 said:

“I thoroughly enjoyed finding the secret doors and watching others discover them as well. The staff was phenomenal assisting our special needs group, and our package did not include a guided tour. I can't wait to visit with my family and friends. This was truly a memorable life experience, that I will share with others for many years to come. ? ”

Lampron, (Ms.) Ann on Aug 3, 2014 said:

“What a fun bunch of stuff to sift through! I enjoyed my wander through the house. People were all so pleasant and willing to help. A scavenger hunt would have been helpful - I was so overwhelmed with all the stuff and the hallways and rooms leading into room - I was never really sure if I had covered everything a could. And the champagne was fabulous! LampMom ? ”


Woods, (Mrs.) Barbara on Aug 1, 2014 said:

“We had a FANTASTIC time. Once we discovered the 1st door, it made us want to find more. After 2 hours we had found 7 doors although we must admit to having help with 2 of them.We also enjoyed trying on hats in different rooms and taking "selfies" to show our friends. We will definitely recommend that they visit to have fun and try to find even more doors than we did. ? ”

Sheingold, Brenda on Jul 20, 2014 said:

“Thank you very much for the time attention given to every detail of this event, it surpassed my expectations (and I helped plan it)! My guests were treated with kindness and consideration as if they were in my own home. I would like to mention that two newborns attended, and this was one of their first parties. The staff accommodated the needs of the Moms and their new babies with grace and privacy. H herself supervised the transition of one infant from the car to the house, and made the elevator available to them. Our baby shower at the Mansion is a lasting memory for my growing family, and established a warm first welcome to my little grandson expected on October 6th. Brenda Helen Sheingold ? ”


Miller, (Mr.) Roger on Jul 14, 2014 said:

“As we did on our first visit, we had a great time with you at the Mansion. Immersing ourselves in your phantasmagoric alternative universe is always a profoundly disorienting experience, but it's always great to shake up our everyday perceptions by realizing the world is a vast and varied place. Thank you for a wonderful experience. We were with you during the Germany - Argentina World Cup Final, and it was a pleasure during the extra time period at the end to hang around and watch the outcome -- that sense of relaxation and homey-ness is a part of what makes the Mansion a special place. I can't wait to return for our next visit -- I have a few friends I'd like to introduce to your special little corner of heaven. Roger Miller, Alexandria, Virginia P.S. I hope I'm not in trouble with you -- I strummed a Dylan-signed guitar (on the third floor, I think?) just so I could say I played Bob's guitar. No harm done, but that's definitely a notch in my pistol. You guys are the best. ? ”

Linda Rochelle on Jul 7, 2014 said:

“We received a gift certificate for the Mansion on O as a wedding gift, which we redeemed last weekend. I could not say enough nice things about this lovely and unique hotel, our kind and attentive hosts, and their amazing and friendly staff. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ted, one of the owner/founders, who gave us a great tour of the mansion. We had a fun chat with him about music (the Deja Vu room plays all unreleased versions and samples of classic artists, for instance - when he heard my husband played the guitar, Ted played a sample of Jimmy Page working on "Stairway to Heaven" - fantastic). We were then shown several potential guest rooms available to us, each lovely and unique in its own way, and were allowed to pick which room we would like (we chose "The Fifth Dimension"). We had a blast exploring and a wonderful night's sleep - I enjoyed the jacuzzi tub whilst my husband luxuriated in the huge walk-in shower with 3 jets. The location is great, short walk to Dupont Circle and lots of fun bars and restaurants. We savored the fabulous Sunday brunch buffet which was offered to us at half price since we were hotel guests. Then we went on the 4 floor scavenger hunt which we both got a huge kick out of (found *almost* everything!) We also found a lot of books and some other knick-knacks to take home with us (everything in the mansion is for sale). I could go on and on. Highly recommended to anyone. We hope to make it a yearly pilgrimage. Next time I am going to bring my swimsuit so I can enjoy their gorgeous saltwater pool. ? ”

It is so unique and so much fun, and the staff is genuinely welcoming and makes you feel very relaxed. The doors are PRETTY hard to find, so that was a fun puzzle. In about 2 hours, we only found 6 of the 70! I am definitely going to be coming back. [: ? ”

As expected, the food and service were excellent. I had filet mignon and my husband had salmon. The best ever. We also had the pleasure of meeting Chef Q. He is terrific and so humble. Geoff and I also had the pleasure of talking with H and Ted. It was great spending some time with them. ? ”


Behr, (Mrs.) Megan on May 12, 2014 said:

It was a great way to send Mother's Day. ? ”

“My experience was "ically" magically charming and bewitching in its ambiance mystically special beyond what the senses can imagine comically sweet with statues and objects oozing with creativity musically alive with memories of famous artists such as John Lennon physically energizing, climbing stairs and moving through attached townhouses atypically yummy with chef surprises in every mouthful ontologically revealing the existential essence of the variety of life whimsicallly surprising in each corner intrinsically beautiful through the core Thank you again, Teri-E ? ”

Vicki Shaffer on Mar 16, 2014 said:

“We did the O'Kids Playdate today and had SO MUCH FUN!! Our kids are 8 and 3 and they enjoyed seeing all the different themed rooms. There is a lot to see and do in the mansion. Our son was so proud of himself when he found 2 of the secret doors all by himself. We could have spent all day there, and probably would have if we didn't have another appointment this afternoon. We highly recommend coming to the O Street Mansion.”


guest on Mar 15, 2014 said:

“In praise of Eric. The house has a great number of wonderful employees, and I love interacting with every one-- making coffee very early in the morning with a smile, parking cars very late in the evening with a smile, making and serving food throughout the day with a smile, wandering the halls keeping the lights on with a smile? each and everyone of them contributes to the overall wonderful feeling that I have each and every time I cross your magical threshold. That said, I want to specifically mention what a great job Eric does there. His combination of warmth and efficiency is so comforting. While I feel more like family than a guest, I realize that there are so many little things that happen in order for me to always stay so euphoric-- and this time I got to see Eric doing a lot of them. So thanks to all the staff at the Mansion, and this trip-- especially Eric! -Tom ? ”


Brunch guest on Mar 13, 2014 said:

“For the price, I definitely walked in with expectations - and of course you exceeded them! Everything was delicious, the omelette station host was wonderfully attentive, service was exemplary, and the desert table was both amazing and dangerously close to taking over the rest of the buffet... Not that we mind! After brunch we did the treasure hunt and I haven't had so much fun in a long while. My guests were all just as pleased. Thank you for a fantastic time! ? ”


Banick, David on Mar 12, 2014 said:

“This was a perfect way to end our "surprise wedding" weekend. We invited about 20 friends and family to join us for Sunday Brunch on the morning after. The set up was one very long table in the main room where we, just 12 hours earlier, had our wedding and reception. (These guys must never sleep!). I've been to terrific brunch spreads before but this one is unprecedented, in my book. There is very large breakfast station and an even larger lunch station in another room. Many of the features you have seen before---omelet station (My Aunt Joyce proclaimed it to be the "best omelet ever!"), fruits, pastries, breads, salad, breakfast and luncheon meats, etc., but the quantity, quality, and diversity of the offerings was what our crowd loved the most. Mac & Cheese with bacon? Yes, please! Chocolate fountain? Don't mind if I do! Plus: unlimited Mimosas. All of it delicious. The brunch is $45 a person which may seem a bit high, but for what you get as well as the reason you would go (for a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, graduation, Mother's Day, etc.) it's perfect. And be honest: you really only do a big sprawling Sunday brunch every so often, so go for it! ? ”


American Icons guest on Mar 8, 2014 said:

“Enjoyed taking selfies with the wax figures. Nice snack table, especially the healthy pineapple and strawberries. It was so peaceful and calming to be able to leisurely walk through the rooms. I found a Lennon bio I hadn't yet read in the John Lennon room and sat in there reading it while listening to that wonderful CD of unreleased demos. I also heard an amazing demo in another room of John singing "Yes It Is" with just his guitar, before he'd written all the lyrics. Loved it! The staff was warm and hospitable as always. Thank you for a nice evening. ? ”


Ralay, Vanena on Mar 4, 2014 said:

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

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

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


guest on Jan 27, 2014 said:

“This was our second time staying at the mansion and it was a WONDERFUL experience!

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

Melva Jones on Jan 15, 2014 said:

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

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

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


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

Our group stayed for 2.5 hours because we had to get to our next event, but we could have stayed a lot longer. We will definitely be back. ? ”


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

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


August, Robert on Jan 4, 2014 said:

“It was AMAZING!!!! There was so much to see and to do. You have to keep your eyes open to see everything on the treasure hunt list. And everything is for sale!

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

admin on Dec 10, 2013 said:

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

The food was delicious - the dessert bar was unbelievable! Thanks for making our holiday party memorable! I know many of our staff will be returning to explore. ? ”


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

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


Leni Ward on Dec 8, 2013 said:

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

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

Happy Hours guest on Nov 26, 2013 said:

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


Rakestraw, Don on Nov 25, 2013 said:

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

Lash, Jay on Nov 25, 2013 said:

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

I would also like to send a special shout out to the young lady who was coordinating our event; she did an exceptional job at keeping the event organized and on track, getting all of our members fed in a timely manner and taking special care of each guest in attendance.

Breakfast guest on Nov 6, 2013 said:

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

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

Mansion Member on Oct 20, 2013 said:

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


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

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


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

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

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

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

Mustache Mondays guest on Oct 1, 2013 said:

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

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


Company Retreat on Sep 28, 2013 said:

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

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

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

But NOT A BAT squeak of those thoughts occurred before, during or after the spectacular book party you hosted for me last Saturday. Everything looked so beautiful, the food was divine, everyone who worked the party was elegant, thoughtful, polite without being smarmy, and engaged in a way that felt beautifully personal. I could not have been more grateful for what you did. Thank you H, and Ted and one and all. ? ”

“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:

“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. — ”

“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 :-) — ”

“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. — ”

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. — ”

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.”

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!!! — ”
