I traveled from San Diego to Santa Barbara to treat myself to a long, decompressing, spiritual birthday weekend. I found the Cheshire Cat Inn on the web and gave it a try. I was so pleased with the spot that I know I'll go again. The staff were wonderful and acted as concierge as well as service provider. The rooms are lovely. The grounds are phenomenal! I spent a lot of time in the lovely yard admiring the fantastic live oak tree and other lovely plants and flowers. My only reason for not giving all 5s were these: I think the room was a little expensive and the room I was in (Jean's room) had some street noise on weekend nights and early morning. It wouldn't have bothered me except I was trying to meditate and be in a quiet place...I found the yard the perfect place to find the solitude and silence I wanted. Another plus were the other folks staying there! I had several conversations with other traveling folks and most were there as repeat stayers! Next time, that's what I'll be, too!
