- Karen Brown's Recommendation:
The Cheshire Cat is comprised of two lovely beige and white Victorians sitting side by side and connected by a tranquil flower-filled bricked patio (where breakfast is served), four private cottages, and a coach house. In the foyer of the main house a grouping of Alice in Wonderland figurines sets the whimsical theme of the inn. Each guestroom is unique in appeal although consistent in the Laura Ashley coordinated prints and wallpapers used in the decor; from sapphire blue in the Mock Turtle room to Burgundy, sage, and gold in the Cheshire Cat suite. Two spacious suites in the Coach House, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, enjoy their own entrance off the back of the garden. Tweedledum is especially appealing. In the bedroom along with its king-sized bed there is a Jacuzzi tub for two. It also has a cozy sitting room with fireplace, pine floor, wood beams, and oriental rugs. Three two-bedroom cottages, Woodford, Prestbury, and Mobberly, each have a fully stocked kitchen, living room, fireplace, and a private redwood deck with a hot tub. The fourth cottage, Bramhall, comes as a 1 or 2 bedroom unit with kitchen, living room, fireplace and dining nook. A delicious breakfast, evening wine and hors d’oeuvres, free Wi-Fi,and an in-house computer are some of the amenities offered. The inn is centrally located four blocks to downtown dining, shops and theaters and a 20 minute walk to the beach.
