Wonderful August Reunion Stay

5 on August 21, 2014

My wife and I were in the area for a class reunion and stayed in the Blue Room for 2 nights. The accommodations were excellent in every way, this property is not only beautiful but very well maintained with many extras for the guests to enjoy. The breakfast was of a quality you would receive at a luxury resort such as the Greenbrier Resort in WV or the Homestead Resort in VA. Due to evening obligations we didn't get to have dinner with Monika and Jeff however we will do that when we return to the area again. They are very gracious hosts in every way, the location was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable we could not have been more pleased, thank you Monika and Jeff for this great experience.

Great stay

Wonderful surprise in Sheffield

5 on August 11, 2014

I had heard of the Chestnut Street Inn from my cousin who said you have got to stay here. With a wedding in Princeton the opportunity presented itself. My wife was reluctant but quickly changed her mind. The Inn is so beautiful inside it is like staying at a small scale version of Mackinac Island Grand Hotel. History is everywhere and I expected to see Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour pop around a corner. We stayed in the Blue Room and the adornments were perfect and the bed very comfortable. Of course if you are going to The Chestnut Street Inn the hotel is only 1/2 of the treasure. The other half is the incredible food from Chef Monika. She spends hours and hours cooking up a cuisine that you will not forget. Just wonderful. We also had fun chatting with Jeff and the guests. One couple came just for the special dinner and the other were young newlyweds. Check out the menu and make sure you book the dinner as well as the hotel. You will be in for a wonderful memory.

A First-Class Experience

We stayed on a Thursday, and were treated royally from the minute we arrived. Lots of little extras, and the culinary experience of breakfast was awesome. This is so much more than a place to spend the night while traveling; this is a place to make a memory. We did! Thank you CSI!
