From arrival to departure....everything was simply outstanding!!! The evening cookies, well appointed rooms (large jacuzzi tub and fireplace!!) to the gourmet breakfast and the fabulous hosts (Thanks Jamie and Jim!) ....this Inn exceeds it's reputation as the best in Napa! Easy walking distance to downtown.

My wife treated us to a 2 day stay here for my birthday last weekend. Like all the other reviews here, nothing but positives across the board. Great food, great room (got a free upgrade). The champagne and truffles are a great little touch. You are made to feel welcome and appreciated. Highly recommend!!!

With so many B&Bs in Napa, it was very hard to choose where to stay. I based my choice on all of the great reviews and I must say, the Inn on First was just perfect! The property is beautiful and the rooms have everything you might need. As everyone else mentioned, the breakfast was delicious, creative and personalized. Jim... More

I took my girlfriend here for 3 nights for her birthday last year and wow was it a great decision. There's little I can add that hasn't already been mentioned in earlier reviews, but I'll touch on a few things. Food - I'm not much of a bed and breakfast type person (prefer to explore and get out of the... More

We just returned from a 3-night stay at the Inn, and had the best time! The property is beautiful - I suppose it's ok that it rained most of or stay, otherwise I would have been tempted to sit out in the garden all day long and not go see anything else. Breakfast was delicious - fresh squeezed orange juice,... More

My wife and I were getting away for a few days and the Inn on First had everything we were looking for when we first started looking online.

The food is amazing, and Jim immediately impressed me with truly caring to make a unique, delicious, and bountiful breakfast that complied with our food allergies. Jamie is a gracious host and greeted us after hours and made certain we knew where we were going the next morning.
