As most reviews reveal, the Inn on First is a gem. I'll try to highlight why this B&B is highly rated without reiterating previous reviews. Attention to details is where the inn shines. A spacious and well-lit parking lot in the rear leads you inside the property. The beautifully manicured grounds, with the elements allowing a wildlife habitat certification, also... More

We stayed at the Inn on First for two nights while on our honeymoon in California. It was a magical experience in so many ways. First, the inn has all the requisite comforts -- lovely, well-appointed, clean, efficient, comfortable, etc. But the real secret to this place is the special touches - the split of champagne waiting in our room,...

We stayed at The Inn on First recently and was right before the Napa earthquake. So I am hoping The Inn on First fared well through it. (and the people associated with it) When we arrived we were greeted by Bron ? who worked at the Inn. He was a subdued but helpful in greeting us. We also met a... More

My husband, Patrick, and I stayed here for six nights during our honeymoon. Our amazing experience here began the moment we walked into our room and were welcomed by music playing from an iPod, one of which is set up in each room complete with various, thoughtful playlists. Next, we were told that there was complimentary champagne in our fridge... More

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in one of the honeymoon suites as our base for wine tasting to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Being from the east coast and having over 100 wineries to select from, we needed help on where to go for the wine tastings with only 2 full days to experience Napa Valley. Jim and Jamie... More

On our first trip out to Napa last year as a small honeymoon, we stayed here our first night. After our first night, we came to regret the fact the we were going to another hotel. Our friends' wedding gave us an opportunity to come back and we stayed three nights this time. Jamie and Jim are the most friendly... 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
