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... More

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... More

This inn met all of our expectations and more. The staff and service were superb. The breakfasts even more so - be sure you don't miss it. The accommodations were more than comfortable. There is a nice parking area near the beautiful garden. And all of this is within walking distance to shops and restaurants.

As another B&B owner, who want a short break, it was a pleasure to stay there. They are doing it right in all areas!! The staff, facilities and the food are all what they should be. Larry Carriage Vineyards B&B Templeton

I would give CC five stars, but we booked very late and had to settle for a small room that felt cramped because the jetted tub took up so much room. The CC is exceptionally well managed and staffed by charming and efficient innkeepers. The breakfasts and coctail hour hors d'oeuvres were the best we've had at inns and bed... More

Nice people, clean, excellent food, nice room. Good location, nice grounds, easy parking, reasonable prices coated with pricey downtown hotels. Updated bathroom fixtures. Only complaint is the music that seems to be playing everywhere, Muzak style.
