Excellent B and B. Our hosts (Monika and Jeff) are terrific and the meals are exceptional. This is our second time staying there and it was every bit as good as the first.

Simply the best

My wife and I highly recommend this bed and breakfast! The Rosewood suite was beautiful. The 4 course dinner (extra and well worth it) was fabulous! We had breakfast the next morning in our private dining room! The hosts were friendly and made our stay so warm and relaxing! We also recommend traveling to the nearby town of Princeton for antique shops and a relaxing spa at Sophisticuts Salon.

Outstanding B&B

After researching B & B's,my husband booked Chestnut Street Inn for a weekend getaway. We had a great time. The Inn is wonderfully decorated with things from the Sudakov's travels that all have interesting stories. We booked the Saturday night meal and it was superb. Don't miss it, and the opportunity to visit with other guests. Breakfast was also a treat, with a delicious twist on what breakfast food can be. We had great conversations with the owners, including an especially astonishing one with Monika regarding food anthropology. Fascinating! The room was tastefully decorated. An added touch was that bed had My Pillow pillows on it, resulting in our getting our own at home! Sheffield is a small town, perfect for a walk after that wonderful dinner.
