I was just there for a get away weekend with a high school friend. We've gotten together for 20+ years and after this stay we have been spoiled for going anywhere else. The accommodations were charming, the hosts were too and the food was beyond good. I had read reviews and they all set my expectations very high. High enough that I was worried I'd be disappointed. Well, Monika had me worry free after the first hello. I talked to my husband and then made reservations for August, to celebrate our 50th anniversary. I can hardly wait.

We stayed in the King Size Suite which had it's own Dining room ... we were offered dinner with everyone else, but took advantage of dining alone. Meal was out of this world delicious. Slept like babies and enjoyed breakfast in our little slice of heaven too ! Thank You !!

My husband and I recently spent a long weekend at the Chestnut Street Inn. It far exceeded our expectations. The house itself is historic, decorated in tasteful antiques plus interesting pieces from the owners’ travels to Morocco. We stayed in the Green Room that includes one larger room with a full bed and bathroom, a small room with a single bed and a porch/sitting room with dining and media areas with a large-screen TV. Originally the maids’ quarters, this is situated at the rear of the house and was both cozy and quiet with its own separate stair entrance from the first floor. The Inn has an extensive DVD/VCR collection perfect for fun diversion any time of the year. WI-FI and satellite TV round out the modern media inclusions. Sheffield is quite tiny, but the nearby town of Princeton has an interesting array of shops and antiques stores. However, the true stars of this inn are the charming owners and the incredible meals lovingly prepared by Chef Monika. Jeff and Monika are fascinating people who, as time permits, are willing to share their many adventures with you. A stay at the Inn includes a full breakfast, but a separate evening meal is also available and open to the public. As someone with multiple food sensitivities, I find it hard to go out to eat anywhere. At the Chestnut Street Inn, not only was I provided with food that I could actually eat, I was presented with truly beautiful, delicious, organic, locally-sourced meals from a chef who was not only knowledgeable but sympathetic and viewed my needs as a creative challenge to cheerfully accommodate. Both my husband and I decided that the meals we enjoyed at the Inn were some of the best we have ever experienced including ones at more exclusive metropolitan restaurants. It is no wonder that Chef Monika has been a finalist for famous reality chef shows. But, let’s hope that fame doesn’t lure her too far away—the Chestnut Street Inn is a treasure that I hope many will enjoy for years to come!

This B&B serves themed dinners and it is a great place to just go have a gourmet meal, lounge around, and then have an equally great breakfast before departing. They try to locally source as much of their food as possible. Monika and Jeff are attentive and friendly hosts.-Dr. Bob Carter

We started off walking into a beautiful house! We got a personal tour from Jeff who was super nice. He showed us our room where the pop and popcorn was that we can help ourselves to as well as the button to push in case we needed him or his wife at anytime time. Jeff recommended a pizza place downtown, Bellucios, I believe. Jeff came up and started a fire in our room. He legally has to, but it was nice to not worry about it anyways. I was amazed by the size of the room. It was perfect for a romantic getaway. Monika made us a wonderful breakfast to finish the stay. We look forward to going back during the summer when you can play bags outside and enjoy the beautiful yard that is currently covered in snow. The house has a lot of history also and it is just beautiful!!
