“If you don't have a lovely time here, you don't know what one is.”
Reviewed 9 December 2012

Eccentric couple passionate about their vocation, wonderful food execution, and fun, personal service. This is the place so many of us would love to helm, but Monica and Jeff are here and ready to serve. The Inn is beautiful, the seating for dinner is a great mix of intimacy and privacy that you don't often find in B&B settings. This is a great restaurant in the unlikeliest of unassuming small towns. Just one of those perfect gems in life you can't define, but when you walk through the door, you're home again.

What a wonderful, relaxing stay. Arrived after a long ride and was greeted by the owner Jeff who showed us around his home. Our room was named The Federal Room and it was quite lovely. They have 2 suites which allow in room dining and two regular rooms. Dinner was provided at our request, 4 courses at $30 per plate,well worth the price. It is a foodies delight. Monika,Jeff's wife went to culinary school and serves wonderful meals. And she bakes the most AMAZING macaroons I have every eaten. They have drinks and snacks available. The town itself is small and quiet. If you want to shop you need to go to Princeton, about 15 miles away.

This B&B is splendid! The attention to detail in the rooms is wonderful. The linens, pillows, robes, towels, everything is luxurious. And the food! You will think you have died and gone to food heaven. Monika is an amazing chef. She and Jeff make you feel welcome and special.

My wife & I have eaten here several times over the last 3 years. Each time Jeff & Monika surpass our expectations from our previous visit. The service by Jeff matches the amazing food made by Monika. It doesn't matter what we order... It's just Amazing! The Inn's atmosphere adds a comforting feeling to the meal.

Just returned from spending the weekend at The Chestnut Inn. Quite a wonderful experience. Jeff and Monica, the owners, have created a restful haven where you would least expect to find it. We drove from Brighton Michigan to take advantage of the nice Christmas gift that I was given and not having spent anytime in B&B's I was quite surprised.
The accommodations were very inviting and well appointed. Enjoyed staying in the federal room which is at the front of the top floor overlooking the street with windows on 3 sides. Request this room if you can get it.

Enjoyed 2 breakfasts and had some of the best pancakes ever. Jeff was quite priud of himself as he filled in quite admirably for Monica and prepared all the meals including a nice roasted pepper soup accompanied by to die for scones and a butter lettuce salad. The filet mignon was also well prepared and for desert - 2 creme brulees - my favorite desert.

These owners will go out of the way to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Enjoyed sampling some of the product from the local farms. Would high recommend this gem to anyone looking for a quiet escape, who enjoys having a glass of wine or having breakfast on the patio overlooking a well maintained garden. An experience to remember.

We had a fantastic Valentine's Day Dinner with Monika and Jeff. My husband Glen is not a risk-taker when it comes to his food. He likes what he likes and often repeats the same things over and over. BUT, when we eat at CSI, he will eat and love any and every dish that is placed in front of him! I am amazed at the types of dishes that he eats only here! He says there is a very good reason for this. He trusts Monika completely. If she created it, he will love it! That must be so, because we return every chance we get. Jeff's hospitality and service are second to none, but Monika is truly the "Belle of the Ball" when it comes to anything culinary. She is a very personable and yet highly professional chef. We love it when she dashes from the kitchen to visit and perhaps share a few secrets. No matter the occasion, the Chestnut Street Inn is the place to discover the tastes that so many creatively created dishes can offer. One cannot go wrong when this "Culinary Cutie" is in the kitchen!

We stayed here September 2011. We made our reservations at the last minute and we were lucky enough to stay the weekend that Monica does an all chocolate menu. The only room available was the Rosewood suite which meant we could dine in our room, otherwise the dinner was sold out. The room was lovely, large comfortable bed and nice sitting area. They thought of everything, there were DVD's to watch, magazines to read, bubble bath and even a fan. The room wasn't hot, I just like the sound of a fan to go to sleep. The meal served in our room was excellent, each course was brought up and explained. It was so good I couldn't eat all of my dessert and it was chocolate creme brûlée, my favorite. The breakfast the next day was just as good, we chose to eat in the dining room with the other guests. Once everyone was served Monica and Jeff joined us for wonderful conversation. We will be going back soon.
