Romantic Getaway

My wife and I have been apart for a couple months while my wife was taking care of her mother's estate. I came down from Wyoming to bring her home but decided to take a getaway up to Santa Barbara, Cheshire Cat Inn was the perfect choice. We stayed in a cottage. Very private with a living room, two bedrooms, kitchen, dining area and bath. But the thing we loved was the hot tub for two in the back, secluded and private patio. We let all our stress melt away. We loved it so much we extended our stay an extra night. The Inn Keepers, Connie and Bharti are so friendly and accomodating. The breakfasts were also very good. We were catered to the entire time. We will be back next time in Santa Barbara,

Arrive Smiling; Leave Grinning

We keep coming back to the Cheshire Cat And leave with a grin that is broad and fat. It’s wonderful, charming, the evening hors d’oeuvres, And Bharti’s a beauty, the pleasure she serves. We’ve tried many rooms, although one is our favorite, The Queen of Hearts ambiance, so much do we savor it. The breakfast is ample with long conversation, Our getaway weekend or weekday vacation!
