“Multiple Appeal-Dimensions, like a Diamond”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2005

We have children going to one of the fine boarding schools that dot the countryside in Duchess County, Berkshires, CT River Valley, etc. And we always discover other parents -- with children at Kent, Hotchkiss, Indian Mountain, Salisbury, etc. -- staying at the inn too. These are parents from NC, CA, FL, MO, MD, TX, IL, really from all over America. And this B&B has an appeal that not only brings them all together. It keeps bringing them all back too. From their regional experiences, as with ours in Pennsylvania, the Simmons Way has something for everyone to like. An experiece there makes for a unique combination of perquisites (bar, wonderfully appointed rooms, tv room, lovely dining, family-friendly, peaceful surroundings, convenience to town) that would not seem to "work" together . . . but ironically do. In a big way. In a way that is impressionable, memorable. As someone else already wrote, I think the magic that binds everything together is Martha & Jay, the innkeepers. I don't think another inn - that is, innkeepers - could pull this off. I've stayed at the SWVI only 3-4 times, and M & J have become like family. You don't find inns like this too often because you don't find people like this too often.

For our first (of what, over the years, is now several) stays at the SWI, our party of 4 arrived after midnight - because of car troubles.
Mr. Reynolds was there to greet us; then amazingly to offer use of his automobile for 2 full days as we recovered from the earlier road mishap. This would have been enough - an act of uncommon charity. But it was not to stop there: The SWI became our "home" for a week in a way that for my wife & me, after 27 years of B&B's in 18 states and 4 countries, surpassed all. We have returned many times. Granted, this Millerton site is not one of those tony spa/resort masquerading as a country inn. That said, the wine list & the daily fare & antiques & overall accomodations do not just contribute to a first-rate experience. They combine to create an atmosphere of simple elegance that so many other inns aspire to, but never reach. The reason is, I think, the charcter of the innkeepers: thoughtful, decent, interesting people whose commitment to others (I learned) has been established well beyond this lovely B&B.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Period American charm enhanced with a touch of European tradition and tranquility. Accommodations are thoughtfully designed to offer a pleasurable experience from a time when detail was important and appreciated. Guests frequently return “home” to Simmons’ Way and heartily recommend it to others – the best compliment! All rooms are uniquely and comfortably decorated and have private bath. Sleep in one of our nine beautiful and spacious rooms, each with private bath, most with queen size bed. Choose a room with a canopy bed, a private porch, or an over-sized bathtub. Breakfast choices include farm-fresh free-range eggs, our special Apple or Blueberry Pancakes or French toast with pure maple syrup. Bacon and sausage as well as fruit are always available. No. 9, the restaurant, is located within the inn. It is currently the "go to" dining place in the region. The location is conveniently close to all of the arts, activities and festivals in the Berkshires, Litchfield County, CT, and the Hudson Valley of New York. The area back roads and the Harlem Valley Rail Trail make this a great destination for bicyclists. By car or rail, just two hours from New York City. ... more   less
