We highly recommend this B&B in Santa Barbara. We stayed for a birthday celebration and were very glad my husband selected the Cheshire Cat as a surprise get away. We were welcomed nicely and shown around the property, which includes a lovely garden area with several sitting sections. We were treated to a small bottle of wine and chocolates to... More

I have stayed at the Cheshire Cat several times now and I thoroughly enjoy it every time! All the rooms I have stayed in are individually and beautifully furnished and everything is super clean and comfortable. The rooms have been updated to give it a fresh feel without losing the charm of a bed and breakfast. The food is delicious... More

When we arrived our first impression was not favorable. Our evening Inn keeper was brisk and appeared bothered that we had arrived. The Alice room was fine and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom was very small and not suitable for someone who has any difficulty navigating small spaces. You needed to lean into the shower to close the bathroom... More

This will have been our second stay at The Cheshire Cat Inn and we have enjoyed both of our stays. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable and the small kitchen and dining room suited our purposes very well. We stayed in the Bramhall Cottage this time (The Prestbury last time). They accommodated us for an early check in and... More

My husband and I had not stayed in an Inn for some time, so I suggested we do this for Valentine's Day. We chose the Queen of Hearts room. It was a beautiful and very cozy room. We arrived just as wine and hors' de ordeurves were being served...yum, yum! Breakfast was delicious...abelskivers among other treats. Great location with good... More

We spent two nights at the Cheshire Cat last week in Alice's room. It was quiet with a nice balcony and its mountain view was a nice respite from the snowstorm we left in Ohio. Breakfast was good, and we appreciated the Happy Hour wine tasting daily. It's an easy walk to the many restaurants and attractions of the State... More

We have now stayed here twice and really enjoy it.....we decided to stay here for our Anniversary and tried out the Tweedledum Suite in the Coach House. It is very nice and has a huge jetted tub in the Master Bedroom. The Breakfast each morning was top notch and the ladies were all very nice. The only reason I did... More

Excellent location - close to shops and restaurants, but in a very quiet residential street. Easy to walk back to after sampling the local wines in the nearby restaurants. Very welcoming - wine and snacks provided in the charming lounge. Excellent breakfast. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here recently for a long weekend. We will definitely be back! It is close to everything - the main street with all restaurants (Chase St.) If you follow this street down you will get to the pier. It is approx 1.7 mi walk. Upon arrival Susanne welcomed us and took us on a tour. We... More

The wife and I love B&Bs and we stayed in this one during our trip to wine country. This is located right by State Street which is the Main Drag in Santa Barbara. It is located by some awesome restaurants and is about 40 minutes away from great wine areas such as Buellton and Solvang. The breakfasts were great and... More
