Amazing place for Anniversaries
Cutest B&B I've ever stayed in. Great spot to celebrate your anniversary with plush robes in your room, amazing continental breakfast in the patio (as the weather was perfect), and great spot where there is peace and quiet. It is only 1.7 miles from the beach and right next to State Street so you can definitely walk everywhere without driving much. The bed was comfortable so much that I don't even remember falling asleep. The area is safe and you receive an electronic code to the building for your room. Amazing stay and can't wait to visit again.

Comfortable, Clean, Enjoyable Stay
We had a wonderful stay at Cheshire. We drove down for a wedding, which was at 3pm on a Thursday. We were able to get early check-in on thursday, and they actually upgraded us to a cottage. The cottage was spacious, with 2 beds 1 bath and living room and kitchen. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding, and lovely to enjoy in the main house. I would highly recommend staying here for comfort, and an easy walk to State Street.
