I truly cannot say enough great things about this B&B. My husband and I were visiting friends in LA and decided to take a couples retreat trip up to Santa Barbara for the weekend. Knowing absolutely NOTHING about the area and relying completely on internet research, I found this gem! Honestly, it can be so hard trying to weed out truly great places on the world wide web but, man, did we luck out!
We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom suites and could not have asked for more. The innkeepers could not have been more accommodating (putting up with my dwindling cell reception and late check in time), the grounds are unbelievably gorgeous and the walk to State St. (the main drag in S.B.) was more than reasonable.
If you are looking for a romantic, relaxing location - look no further. The two bedroom suite was the perfect amount of space for two couples and the private hot tub on the back porch put our experience over the top. If it's not apparent already, i highly recommend this spot to anyone traveling through the area. Not only was our experience wonderful but the price was perfect...even cheaper then two separate rooms at comparable locations. If you're going to S.B. anytime soon - RUN don't walk to the Cheshire Inn!
I cannot say enough good things about Steve Koo. After the wonderful engagement shoot Steve did for us, we just knew we had to have him at our wedding. For a girl who does not feel particularly comfortable in front of the camera, I felt extremely confident knowing Steve was behind the lens on the biggest day of my life (the man was even nice enough to carry my lip gloss during the post-ceremony photo shoot). His contemporary style and amazing attention to detail captured the fun and elegance of our big day in a way that I had not seen from other photographers we spoke with. His professionalism and personality set me at ease and helped to enhance the joy of our big day! I would highly recommend Steve for any photography needs....his photo journalistic style is perfect for family portraits too!
