Loved this B & B! Cozy, comfortable and clean, not to mention great location and awesome breakfast. Innkeepers were a delight to talk to and very accommodating….Ours friends were staying at the B & B across the street (only because the Inn on First was full). It was pouring rain so we ended up spending lots of time in the... More

My wife and I travelled to Napa for the first time and she really wanted to stay at a B&B. After carefully perusing reviews on trip advisor we chose The Inn on First. We are so glad that we did. The Inn is run by two wonderful innkeepers, Jim and Jamie. We only got to spend a little time saying... More

My husband and I spent 2 days and 2 nights in Napa last week. I am SO happy I chose the Inn on First.

This was our fourth visit to TIoF and each is better than the last. Jim & Jamie meet us at the door with a hug, chat with us about our travel plans, show us to our rooms, and check in with us each day to ensure things are going well. We love this place!

I was not crazy about the fact that we were staying in Napa and not out in Yountville or St. Helena, but my concern was quickly overcome after I saw this inn. We use Select Registry properties all the time, and this inn is a primary example of why. The inn is beautifully decorated, and I'm and Jaime have thought... More

This is a great B&B for many reasons. An excellent location with easy access to all parts of downtown Napa. We stayed in the Angel Room which was airy,bright, and very comfortable. The room also had a Jacuzzi, gas fireplace, and special touches such as chocolate truffles, and champagne. Above all the room was spotless!! The "gourmet" breakfast from Jim's... More

We were on a road trip driving from LA to SF staying at various B & Bs along the way. While they were all very good, the Inn at First was the best! Jamie and Jim made us feel very welcomed as well as guiding us to wineries, scenic routes to the wineries, and making reservations for us at a... More

The “Jim and Jamie experience” can be expressed in a simple yet meaningful term: customer service! Jim and Jamie go out of their way to ensure that their patrons are well fed with a gourmet breakfast (and sweets) and that they are provided with invaluable information pertaining to activities, wineries & vineyards, and restaurants while in wine country.

We recently spent 5 nights at the inn the end of March. Upon arrival we were greeted and shown around. They had fresh baked chocolate chunk cookies for the guests (this was daily and they were delicious)! Our room was #3 upstairs in the main house. It was very spacious with a very comfy kingsize bed, fireplace and private bath... More

Dear Poodle2014: Thanks so much for spending five nights with us, and we're so happy to hear your stay was so positive. Thanks for sharing the fact that Jim won't serve anyone the same breakfast twice. It's his commitment to every guest. We can't send anyone to the airport without something tasting beforehand as well!

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
