Staying at the Simpson House was delightful. My husband and I were there for 3 nights with friends, and we all agreed we had made a wonderful choice. First of all, the location is hard to beat; it's in a quiet neighborhood about a 10 minute walk to State Street, the main shopping and restaurant area in Santa Barbara. The amenities couldn't be nicer.....lovely gourmet breakfast served indoors or outdoors, pretty rooms with comfy beds (we stayed in the Robert and Julia Simpson room that had a wrap around deck, and we loved it), wine and appetizers galore from 5:30-6:30 each night, an incredible and helpful staff (kudos to Jillian, Kerry and the two Barbaras) who couldn't have been more delightful, nearby restaurants that serve yummy food, and lots of printed brochures that help you decide what you want to do or where you want to go each day.....a word of caution about the descriptions of the hikes.....we did the Romero Canyon hike and didn't realize it was so long, about 7 miles, so if you choose this one, be sure to be prepared with enough water, sunscreen etc. We weren't, so it became a bit more challenging than we expected. All in all, our 3 days flew by too quickly, and our only regret is that we didn't have enough time to enjoy the beautiful gardens. We hope to make a return visit and keep that in mind as it's a great spot to just take a deep breath and relax. By the way, we don't usually stay in B and B's, but The Simpson House couldn't have been a better first experience.
