I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn on First in March of this year with two other couples. We stayed in the garden suites and they were amazing! The bed was extremely comfortable, we loved the fact that the room did not have a television to distract us from this vacation. The entire property was incredibly inviting and... More

I had been dreaming of a trip to the Napa Valley for many years. Our stay at The Inn on First exceeded every expectation. This was largely due to the attention and warmth from Jamie, who took a great deal of time with each set of guests...and tailored their plans for their specific interests. He made sure we got the...

The Inn on First is hands down the best inn in the valley. Breakfast is the highlight of the day. There is plenty of gourmet food in Napa, but there is nothing like Jim's breakfasts. The rooms are impeccable, the service is unbeatable. Jim and Jamie engage all of their guests to assist them in everything from finding new wineries... More

Upon a friend's recommendation, we stayed at the Inn on First with Jim and Jamie. Cozy and cared for doesn't begin to describe the experience. We had not been to Napa for a very long time, and on day one, the wineries of our youth disappointed this time around. Jamie found out exactly what kinds of wines we like to... More

Came for a weekend before the beginning of the American College of Surgery conference in SF during October. Wonderful B&B. Very comfortable and spacious room. Champagne and chocolates in room. Nice little patio for when you return from the wineries. The guys prepared excellent gourmet breakfasts everyday, not a buffet but made for you. They really know Napa. They will... More

I did an immense amount of research, looking for an amazing B&B for us to stay in Napa. As soon as I read the reviews for Inn on First, I knew I had found the PERFECT location and this was backed up by the wonderful confirmation email providing ten pages of information on the area, B&B, restaurants, wineries, activities etc....
