We stayed at the Secret Garden for a weekend in late April. Being an avid traveler and using B & B as our choice of accommodations when we can, I have to say this is the best of the best.

The overall feel of the Inn was welcoming. The house is breathtaking. The room was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities necessary to make our stay extra special. Parking onsite is an added bonus.

The host was very friendly, attentive and was always available to answer any questions to make our stay enjoyable. She made us feel right at home. The breakfast that she provided was like eating in a 5 star restaurant. Afternoon tea and snacks was a nice addition. She gave us advice about some of the local eateries.Tip: try the Tapas Restaurant it was excellent.

We are planning on coming back mid summer to visit the 1000 Islands and no need to look anything further as this Inn will always be our first choice of accommodations in the area.

"My husband and I booked a quick getaway to kingston and chose to stay at the secret garden B&B vs our usual hotel. We are so glad we did! B&B is lovely and grand, beautiful old home turned into a very comfortable inn. Warm and inviting, the B&B is very relaxing and the owner Kathy is friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great (according to my husband, I enjoyed a sleep-in each morning in our beautiful room, Theresa's room). Free parking, wonderful front porch and directly across the street from a beautiful old church, the setting is lovely. Easy walk to downtown. We would highly recommend this B&B, we will not stay anywhere else in our future visits to Kingston!!"

“We travelled as a family of three in January and had a charming stay. Comfortable, cozy and quaint, with a delicious breakfast each morning! I loved being able to read and play games in the living room with the sunlight streaming through, and will definitely be back!”

“We have visited this wonderful B and B quite a few times in the last few years and I'm so happy to tell you that the quality of the inn and our experience there is unchanged as perhaps the nicest place we have ever stayed. Located in the heart of downtown, The Secret Garden is within walking distance of many interesting restaurants and shops and within a short drive of many events and points of interest. Kathy, the innkeeper is a kind and caring person who knows just about everything there is to know about Kingston. She always has a new restaurant to recommend or an attraction to suggest. Her breakfasts are hearty and beautifully prepared. The rooms are clean, comfortable and welcoming. Afternoon tea served as you arrive is always a special treat. I'm so glad we found this place and will continue to visit year after year.”
