Rooms & Rates
The Simpson House Inn welcomes visitors to a quaint corner of Santa Barbara, just a 10-minute walk from Alameda Park, the historic Courthouse and charming State Street’s boutique shops and cafes. Housed in a beautifully restored Victorian, the inn dates back to 1874 and features a wraparound porch on each story with wicker chairs inviting guests to unwind and take in over an acre of private gardens.
Each guest room is individually decorated with handpicked antiques like French armoires and claw-foot tubs; many have patios or balconies. For additional privacy, guests can reserve one of the cottages or a room in the century-old barn. While there is not a spa on site, in-room massages and other services are available.
Visitors are encouraged to start their mornings with a generous vegetarian breakfast buffet served on the veranda. In the evenings, the inn hosts a wine and hors d’oeuvres hour allowing guests to take a tasting tour of the region’s wine country. The property has bicycles and beach gear for guests to borrow, and croquet matches are organized on the lawn. To see more of the city, take advantage of the complimentary trolley tickets or discounted day passes to the Santa Barbara Athletic Club to burn off extra energy.
