Innkeepers Jim Gunter and Jamie Cherry go out of their way to help tailor Napa Valley visits for their guests. Jamie asks a lot of questions before you arrive, with the goal of making the most of your time in Napa. What kind of wines do you like? Are you looking for pretty wineries or just good wines? Big wineries... More

...One of the owner hosts greeted us at our first breakfast, and the entire stay felt like being at a friend's home. Exquisite, comfortable accommodations. Excellent, unique breakfasts; a very friendly atmosphere. Do yourselves a favor when you go to the wine country and stay at The Inn On First in Napa.

We stayed here last summer over July 4th Weekend and had a beautiful stay. Big room, great breakfast, and a super location for walking into town for dinner after a day at the wineries. The hosts are great, knowledgeable and friendly and warm. Highly recommend staying here rather than an impersonal hotel, You're in a residential neighborhood, but close enough... More
