Interaction with Guests
I don't interact too much with guests, once I have greeted you and shown you the ropes. So you can expect quiet time if you need it. I work, volunteer so am pretty busy. I am always available by phone, should you have a need or concern. I live on the premises also.
From I-5 heading west on Highway 16, take exit #4 Jackson Ave .Turn right and continue on the light at intersection. My house in on a corner lot,with a huge hemlock tree at the very corner of my property behind a wood fence.
Entrance to The Secret Garden : Make a very sharp left from North Narrows Drive and turn onto Harmon Street. The first driveway on your right is where you park, or on the side of the street. The entrance is located here on this level from the driveway .Additional parking on the street.For those that are directionally challenged like I am, please print out the map and directions! :)
Taxis and buses are the main mode of public transportation.

Patty and Gerry are nice folks with a great welcoming smile. It was a great stay. The house was exactly as described. I enjoyed meeting them.
Patty and Jerry make you feel right at home with fantastic service and in a beautiful home they have turned into a very comfortable B&B. In my favorite part of Tacoma conventiently located by freeway. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again! Thank you for the wonderful experience!
I travel for work several weeks a month. When Patty has a room available, I prefer to stay at her home. Patty is a positive attitude, loves to cook, and makes people feel "at home". Highly recommended.
Patty is a terrific host. Her goal is to treat you like a member of her family - one she has never met before. She is warm and caring without being intrusive. I give her my strongest recommendation - and plan to stay at her place again.
Patty is a wonderful host, who works hard to make a person comfortable in her home. Have stayed here many times before and look forward to staying at Patty's again. Highly recommended.
A very nice welcome and a friendly environment. Nice room, clean and in a good location. Some slight street noise if the window is open on a hot summer night. Overall, a great stay. Thanks..
