“Excellent B&B”
Reviewed 20 December 2005

We just renewed our acquaintance with the Cheshire Cat. Our stay was truly delightful and reinforced our decision to return once again. Our room, Jean, in the second house, although not the biggest or fanciest was beautiful and the new bed guaranted sweet dreams. The breakfast included a baked apple, warm scones and a mexican fritata that was to die for. The Cheshire is located in a quiet neighborhood just off State Street and close to everything. I highly recommend it and the price was right.

After more than a decade of beloved B&B stays, we were disappointed that our night at the "Cheshire Cat" will not go down in history as a positive experience. The staff was less than gracious, and our room didn't come close to meeting my expectation. For a little more cost, I would recommend heading down the street to the Simpson House-- a splendid experience, in my opinion.

Stayed October 2005
