This was by far our favorite accommodation during our honeymoon. The rooms were charming, well cared-for, and immaculately clean. The courtyard was inviting, and the breakfasts were absolutely superb! My wife and I are most appreciative of the personal attention Jim and Jamie provided to us in order to make our 3-day stay memorable. They took time to get to... More

I can't say enough good things about The Inn on First. My husband and I had our first bed and breakfast experience here in May 2015 and were completely impressed. Jim was accommodating when we arrived early and showed us right to our room- which was elegant and immaculately clean. Breakfast each day was delicious and unique and both Jim... More

Stacey, Welcome to The Inn on First family! It was a delight having you and your husband stay with us. Since Napa is best enjoyed on foot, we’re thrilled you were able to take advantage of our location and do some exploring downtown. Your kind remarks about everything from Jim’s tasty breakfast to the private wine tour are sincerely appreciated,... More

Jim and Jamie do a fabulous job at all aspects of providing a first class bed and breakfast experience. We particularly like returning from dinner and relaxing in the wonderful living room with port and chocolate chip cookies.

I stayed at the Inn in June while on a girl's trip to Napa. It could not have been any more perfect. Jim's breakfasts were over the top delicious. Jamie was wonderful as our tour guide for a day of wine tasting. They assisted with every detail of our trip from where to eat to where to go for wine... More

My husband and I visited The Inn on First for our honeymoon, and we LOVED it. Our room was incredibly well-appointed, with everything from a heart-shaped jacuzzi to a picnic basket we could take with us if we wanted to venture out on our own. It was easy to walk from the Inn on First to great eateries in downtown... More

My husband and I couldn't have been more excited to make our return trip to The Inn on First this year.
