Until the White Hart in Salisbury opens at the end of August, this small inn is the best around in terms of proximity to attractions and nearby schools. Having visited all of them at one time or another,we have found all the nearby motels and inns to be lacking in the basic amenities,smelling of mold and expensive for what they are.
Number 9 ( formerly Simmon's Inn) has clean, serviceable rooms in a quaint inn in central Millerton. Once you park, you can walk across the street to great shopping, antiqueing, a movie theater, and great restaurants. But try Number 9-- some of the best food around.,
We reserved three rooms the past weekend and for the price they are a bargain. Each are very different so you may want to ask before you reserve about shower size etc. While the Inn is a do-it-yourself affair with minimal staff, a nice continental breakfast is laid out, the rooms are quiet and the beds comfortable, and each room comes with a mini I-Pad. Rooms appear to be serviced on a " as needed" basis. While our beds were made, our towels and bathroom were not changed or cleaned.
Often people overlook this Inn as they assume it is just a restaurant. But give it a try if you're in the area...it beats the competition if you like cleanliness and are adverse to smells...and if you don't want to pay a king's ransom for getting the benefit of mediocrity.
- 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
