Loved every experience of the Simpson House Inn. Upon parking in the motor court, we were immediately greeted by the GM with a warm welcome. A beautiful Victorian house with understated elegant rooms, beautiful gardens with soothing fountains. Loved the quiet atmosphere in a residential area within a blocks walking distance to State Street restaurants and the Alice Keck Park...

Simpson House Inn is a lovely Inn/B&B on a quiet residential street. Very well maintained historic building and beautifully landscaped gardens. All rooms are unattached from...

We stayed here for 1 night on our way up the coast to San Francisco on our babymoon, I'm 31 weeks pregnant. We had been under the weather and needed to rest and relax before another long drive, and Simpson House was absolutely perfect. The staff was incredibly attentive, there was a nice wine and cheese happy hour happening when...

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We stayed in the Tack Room. We loved the fireplace and the private sitting area just outside. The Inn is well-maintained and clean. Our hosts delightful. The breakfasts were delicious as were the treats for the evening wine tasting.

Breakfasts are substantial, delicious...

Lovely little boutique hotel. Room was clean and spacious with a balcony overlooking the courtyard and a cost gas fire. Service was attentive and extremely friendly. Location close to the main street in town.
