My wife and I whilst taking a short 2 week tour of California decided to book 3 nights at the Chesire Cat Inn. After reading countless positive reviews we were not disappointed. We booked the White Rabbit room which had a small balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens.The room was very clean,tastefully decorated and spacious.Morning breakfast was served in the drawing room or the garden dependant on the weather. We were greeted each morning by a wonderful lady named Connie and occassionally Dee who were extremely friendly. There was an excellent choice of foods and each morning freshly baked items were also served. The B&B is located one block away from State street and we found a 15 minute stroll would find you in the heart of the shops and restaurants.A small electrically powered shuttle bus ran the length of State street each day at regular intervals for a very nominal charge. We chose a B&B to avoid the corporate hotel atmosphere and meet some "real" people and that we certainly did. The Chesire cat is an ideal base whilst exploring Santa Barbara and we will certainly return.
