Awesome B&B in Santa Barbara
Anne and Suzanne were amazing. They are super sweet. The room was amazing, so well taking care off, clean, etc! We had the best possible time. Highly recommend for couples or just family time.

Very Good8.0
Cheshire Cat Review
The Cheshire Cat is a good place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and quiet. The staff is very attentive. I would recommend this place. The breakfast could use a little more variety. However, what was served was good.

Charming B&B in downtown SB.
This is a charming on cozy B&B just a few short blocks from dining and shopping on State Street, the main drag in SB. The staff is welcoming and pleasant. We enjoyed the complimentary wine and cheese each evening in the parlour of the main house. There is also a charming outdoor patio area for relaxing. Each evening, there were warm brownies or cookies placed in the lobby as well. Our room was cozy and bed was comfortable. Breakfast each morning was varied and yummy. Room arrangement was a little odd with the sink in the main room, separate from the bath, but that's not unusual in older B&Bs.

It's really Alice in wonderland!
It's the best ever, such a cozy stay in the NYE, differently will book it again!

Cheshire Cat Inn, Santa Barbara
The Cheshire Cat Inn was very charming, with beautiful public spaces and garden. The room was spotlessly clean, with delicious cookies awaiting us. The wine and cheese hour and the breakfast were pleasant, but there was nothing special about them.
