We have stayed at the Simpson House twice. Both times it was excellent. The property is lively and the staff is attentive and friendly. Highly recommended. This trip we stayed in the Tack Room, which is quite lovely. The breakfasts are very well-presented and satisfying. The afternoon happy hour is outstanding..

We have been visiting Simpson House Inn for the last 25 Years. It just continues to get better and better. First class in every way. We love it. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable. The Inns location is perfect for exploring downtown restaurants, museums and parks. Close proximity to the mission and hiking possibilities.

It's always a pleasure to stay at the Simpson House Inn, We have stayed there for over 20 years and love it every time. Wish we could stay for a week. The staff is so friendly and helpful and the breakfasts are divine. I relax the most when we stay there. The location is great to do a lot are nothing at all. The property is very private, so you feel you're on a little island buffered from of the outside world.

Perfect getaway

It feels like a little piece of France right in your backyard. My girlfriend and I traveled through Provence and the Rhone Valley earlier this summer and stayed in some of the most beautiful chateaus and B&b's, and this was just as beautiful and right there with those. The pristine gardens, beautifully manicured with white roses accentuating the old oaks and green grass; the old California styled cottages felt right out of the 1800s, but with the modern amenities and style that you expect in 2018. Plus the staff was so friendly and personalized our stay - including massages in our room! Every night from 530-630 there are complimentary hors d'oeuvres and local wine tasting. It's great to get some snacks, a nice chardonnay, and sit out in the garden by the fountains and fire pit. A must stay romantic get-away!
