Jim & Jamie at the Inn on 1st have got it going in regards to hospitality, comfort, affordability, and personal touch. The rooms, beds, commons areas and everything about their property exceeded my expectations. Their knowledge and help with planning from wine tour venues to restaurant recommendations was excellent. Jim's gourmet breakfasts were fabulous and incomparable to other B&B's I... More

After reading all the glowing reviews, we had a pretty high expectation - and our expectation was exceeded! Jim and Jamie are the most wonderful hosts - we knew we were in good hands right from the very first email confirmation with a plethora of details and recommendations that were incredibly helpful. Jamie was a fountain of knowledge and a... More

We loved our stay. I just wish we had stayed another night but we were committed to going on to San Francisco. The room was amazing with lots of personal touches. The jackusi was really therapeutic. After a good night's sleep in a wonderful bed we were treated to the best breakfast EVER

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was an incredible one. My husband planned this trip as a surprise for my birthday and mother's day. We've been together 12 years and travel quite often but he has never been in charge of the planning aspects, so it was quite a treat that he was able to find... More

My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon at this lovely in, in April. We were very very pleased. We chose the inn because of reviews we had read on Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. The room was very nice. The attention to details is obvious everywhere on the property. We loved having the fireplace and the jacuzzi... More

Fabulously artistic breakfasts cooked by Jamie were great, although choice of food was limited. Room was large, well-equipped and comfortable. Hosts were welcoming and keen to share their knowledge of the area. Inn was well-located within a 5 minute walk of the centre of Napa.

Molie, Thanks so much for your review. We're thrilled with how much you enjoyed the breakfast, and as much as I'd like to take credit for Jim's cooking skills and the huge success that has become his breakfasts (He now has 145 recipes under his belt), it wouldn't be fair. Having said that, we're a small operation, as are most... More

Jim and Jamie, the owners, were the best. They were so friendly and accommodating. Jamie made dinner reservations for us and recommended some wineries based on our wine preferences. Jim is an amazing chef - the breakfast, the cookies, I want to go back now. Everything was very detail oriented, which I absolutely loved. As soon as we made our... More

We recently spent a night at Inn on First and loved it. The location is great, the inn is beautiful and the hosts very friendly and helpful. Wish we could have spent more time there. The split of sparkling wine and truffles were great touches.
