The Inn on First is much more then just an Inn, it is an experience that you will never forget. Jamie and Jim go above and beyond on every level to ensure your stay is one you will never forget. From the initial email after booking, to the special gluten free cookies, to the champagne and chocolates upon our arrival... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at The Inn on First. Jamie and Jim are the quintessential inn keepers. Jim's cookies and gourmet breakfasts are wonderful, and Jamie is an ambassador for Napa. We did Jamie's wine tour, and he crafted a tour for us concentrating on the type of wines we love. He is a very knowledgeable tour... More

My daughter and I spent the weekend at the Inn on First. We were truly impressed by how lovely the mansion and gardens were. Breakfast and the cookies were so delicious. Jim & Jamie were wonderful and knowledgeable hosts. They are clearly perfectionists -- with careful attention to every last detail. The Inn is within walking distance of all the... More

My wife and I stayed here for the first leg of our Honeymoon in Northern California and had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the comfy, relaxing room and the close proximity to everything in Napa. Jim's breakfasts were creative and delicious and Jamie's winery advice was extremely helpful. We look forward to a return visit!

My wife and I flew in from Rio and stayed at the Inn on First for a week during our vacation. Jim & Jamie are fantastic hosts, not only are they welcoming but are able to guide you around the area with knowledge. Breakfast at the Inn is innovative and served extremely well daily; the setting is the added bonus.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights last week. We were on a quick trip to Sonoma and Napa and chose the Inn on First based on other Tripadvisor reviews. The B&B itself is very well kept and in a great location - just a few minutes walk to downtown Napa, Oxbow market, etc. We were greeted by... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for an anniversary get away. Unfortunately, our stay was much too short! I found the Inn on First through TripAdvisor and I diligently did my research as I wanted to ensure our first bed and breakfast experience would be amazing. The booking process was very simple and easy. Jim and Jaime were very... More

My wife and I spent two nights here and fell in love with it. Jim and Jamie have created a cozy yet modern inn. Our room was elegant and spacious and came with a jetted tub and a fireplace. I regret we did not have an opportunity to use either. I really appreciated the care Jim and Jamie took prior... More

My wife and I started our 'greater San Francisco area' vacation with two days in Napa at the Inn on First and it could not have been better. Jim and Jamie have created a truly relaxing and welcoming experience. The room was perfect with its private patio, huge shower and two person jetted tub. Breakfast each morning was amazing with...

I moved to Northern California almost 40 years ago and had never been to Calistoga and only had been through Napa, typically on our way to the coast or to soccer games...never to have a "get away". Wow! what a great place! I am a "keep it simple, understated but elegant" kinda person. I loved the comfortable, contemporary decor. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are setting the new standard for the American Bed and Breakfast Inn. This is not an inn for traditional B&B people. We are attracting the next generation who want great food for breakfast, well beyond the traditional omelets, frittatas, and egg bakes of old. This is where you get to experience a chef’s creative innovation each morning, one of his 110 recipes for breakfast, such as Corndog Omelets, Tomato and Egg Soup with Grilled Cheese Croutons, or S’mores French Toast with house made Marshmallows.WARNING: we do not cater to people who want to stay connected to the television. We purposely removed all televisions so that couples can enjoy the intimacy of whirlpool tubs in the rooms with gas fireplaces, or sit out in the garden sipping on wine and enjoying great conversation. Yes, WiFi is available for those who feel they must stay connected to the outside world, but our hope is that you will learn to leave all that aside to enjoy great Napa hospitality here at the inn and at the wineries. ... more   less
