Comfortable, Clean, Enjoyable Stay
We had a wonderful stay at Cheshire. We drove down for a wedding, which was at 3pm on a Thursday. We were able to get early check-in on thursday, and they actually upgraded us to a cottage. The cottage was spacious, with 2 beds 1 bath and living room and kitchen. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding, and lovely to enjoy in the main house. I would highly recommend staying here for comfort, and an easy walk to State Street.

Everything about Cheshire Cat Inn was wonderful!
Everything about Cheshire Cat Inn was wonderful. From check-in to check-out was perfect in every way. The food was fantastic from the happy hour with hors d'oeuvres and wine to the English inspired breakfast and breakfast bar. Every staff member was over the top and accommodating. The garden grounds were lovely and our room Queen of Hearts was very quaint and comfortable. We checked out less than 24 hours ago and have already referred this in to a dozen friends. Highly recommended.
