If you need a place to take a deep breath and relax, Simpson House Inn is it. From our personal greeting when we arrived until we said good-bye, the friendly staff catered to our every need. Hedges surround the secluded Victorian home making it a true get-away. The room was beautifully decorated with antiques, meticulously clean, and very comfortable. The pillows and bedding were first-class and made for an excellent night’s sleep. The complimentary Kiehl’s bath and body products made getting clean delightful. At our romantic table for two on the veranda we were served amazing vegetarian breakfasts (banana pancakes were my favorite) on cherished family china. In the afternoon, we enjoyed a few too many of the fresh-baked cookies. The evening Hors d’oeuvres were truly delectable. We like good food – and we were not disappointed! In-between eating, we spent time sitting in the beautiful garden, listening to the soothing fountain, and admiring the sprawling Oak Tree. We strolled downtown, walked through nearby parks, visited a museum, and drove to Solvang. Our stay was a trip back in time, yet with all of the modern comforts – including Wi-Fi, television and a mini-fridge. Thank you Simpson House for the perfect vacation.
The service was impeccable. Like staying with family... The included breakfast and snacks were thoughtful and delicious. The perfect romantic getaway. Highest recommendations!
