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

We have been staying at the Inn on First almost yearly since discovering it in 2010. We have recommended it to family and friends, all of whom have unquestionably the same reaction as we do - it is THE BEST place to stay in Napa. From the accommodations to the comfort of the Inn, to the amazing food and fantastic... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely inn for 4 wonderful nights. The hosts, Jim and Jamie, were outstanding hosts. We have stayed in B&B's and hotels throughout the world and felt that this experience was truly one of our best! The breakfasts were not just breakfasts - they were feasts. Jim's style and depth of preparation wowed us... 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

Our two night stay at The Inn on First was wonderful. It was the perfect place to spend our 10th wedding anniversary and was relaxing ending to our busy week in California.

My husband booked a surprise trip to Napa for my birthday and it was literally the best birthday of my life. The Inn on First is a big part of what made my trip so perfect.

My girlfriend treated me to two nights at The Inn On First for my birthday last year, and we both had a great time. We stayed upstairs in the front building or Mansion, in what was then called #1, but has apparently been renamed Budding Vine. Our room had a queen-size bed with a fan above it, a couple of... More

The Inn on First was everything we expected and more. Angel's Share is a really nice and large room. Jamie and Jim are really good at what they do and very professional. Yet, when you talk to them, they make you feel right at home. Compared to other B & B's, the breakfast was outstanding-- the best breakfast in Napa.... More

First, let us say that Jim and Jamie are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Look no further for a perfect place to stay, especially if you're looking to get away and spend time with that special person in your life.

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
