Concierge.com's insider take:
More than 20 years ago, Linda Sue and Glyn Davies turned their 1870s Italianate Victorian home into a B&B, raising the bar for inns everywhere. While the Simpson is pretty grand, with French antique armoires, wood-burning fireplaces, and an acre of flowering gardens, it still feels like a home. There are 15 rooms and suites—spread out among the main house, four garden cottages, and four rooms in the original carriage house—featuring private patios, stone fireplaces, and English country decor. Every day, they serve a gourmet vegetarian breakfast, an afternoon tea buffet, and wine and appetizers from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. There is Wi-Fi throughout the property and bicycles to borrow for a quick zip into downtown Santa Barbara, only a short ride or walk away.
