I say lively because we were able to meet some charming people who we had great conversation with. Yet peaceful because we chose to be in the Tweedledum suite for our 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The room was more than a room it was actually several which afforded us privacy from any kind of noises and large enough to spread...

A terrific location, great choice of rooms (if you book far enough in advance) and really good breakfasts make this an excellent choice for a Santa Barbara visit. Off-street parking is a plus, as is walking distance to State Street and some excellent restaurants. We did not avail ourselves of the wine and appetizer hour, but judging by everything else,...

Stayed 3 nights at the Cheshire. Everything was perfect. Our corner room had tons of windows, the afternoon "happy hour" was so delicious that we had to force ourselves to stop eating to not ruin dinner. Breakfast was fresh cooked and delicious. The courtyard and gazebo were comfortable and quiet. Easy to walk to the main business and restaurant area....

Stayed at the Cheshire Cat Inn last November and had a wonderful time. The breakfast was delicous and the hospitality was great. We stayed in the Caterpillar room and it was very cute and clean. The grounds were beautiful and the whole place felt very warm and homey.

This is our first visit to this inn and we will definitely be coming back. We chose the Caterpillar Suite and it far exceeded our expectations. Views from the balcony were spectacular, especially at sunrise and sunset. Innkeepers were friendly and welcoming. Food was outstanding.

Thank you Cheshire Cat for a great stay. My husband and I stayed many years ago. On this trip, I brought my two children for a quick weekend stay and it's just as I remembered. We were greeted in a friendly way upon arrival. The room I had booked was undergoing renovation so we were quickly moved to the small...

Quiet neighborhood. The inn atmosphere is warm, like home away from home. Small, but cozy room. Beautiful garden plus a hot tub! Kind staff and very good breakfast. Close to restaurants. Definitely, we'll be back.

The Inn is very comfortable and the food is fabulous. I stayed in the Caterpillar room and loved the balcony. The bathroom is small with the sink outside the bathroom, but overall very quiet and comfortable. A short walk to State Street, but a long walk to restaurants and shops.

We stayed in the Prestbury cottage and we loved it. The outside jacuzzi was great and the cottage was deliciously delicate. Additionally, the treatment of the owners was exquisite as well as the breakfast that we had during the weekend. All in all, a 5 stars experience with no doubt. We will completely recommend the stay to anyone looking for...

Some are larger split-level junior suites with private balconies, some have in-room Jacuzzi s and fireplaces. This romantic Santa Barbara inn also features flat screen LCD/DVD, ironing boards and refrigerators. There is free Wi-Fi and parking. All rooms have private baths and direct dial telephones.
