This is really a Bed and Breakfast owned by someone who hired a couple to run the B&B for them. So, don't expect the hosts to be there all the time. It's a really nice place and they sever generous breakfast. There is a outdoor balcony that you can use while you are there and they do offer appetizers (dip)... More

We visitied Ambrose house 2 weeks ago. This was our second trip to Napa and first to Ambrose. To make a long story short- The best time ever in Napa. The decor of the room, the spirit of the lovely inn keeper Chirstean and the most fabulous breakfasts made our vacation the best ever. Every small detail is treated withe... More

There's not one thing we didn't enjoy during our stay! It was very clean and welcoming. Cristhian, the Innkeeper, prepared and served delicious breakfast as well as an afternoon Happy Hour wine and snacks, which was a pleasant unexpected touch of elegance and fun. The location to area wineries is nicely centralized and there are many tasty places to eat... More

We loved this B & B!! The innkeeper was fun and a good cook. The bed was so comfy and great linens and duvet. The bathroom was large and nice. We were in the downstairs room which had a private patio. In the evening wine and light snacks were put out in an upstairs seating area. The relatively new inn... More

I have been to the Ambrose Bierce house twice, since the first visit was just as great! Erin and Cristhian were above and beyond welcoming and we both felt at home. The room was perfect and cozy and we loved the 5 o'clock wine and cheese chit chat!! We were able to relax, kick back, and walk right in town... More

We stayed at the Ambrose Bierce house over the 4th of July and absolutely fell in love. The "Wow factor" was there in all aspects. The house was just perfect and we felt so comfortable staying there. We stayed in the Eadweard Muybridge room and it was everything we expected and more. The high degree of cleanliness and large soaking... More

From the moment we arrived in St Helena, Christian, the innkeeper was taking care of us. He called to make sure we knew where everything would be at the inn. He wanted to make sure that if we came in late we knew where the happy hour supplies were so we could enjoy. He offered to act as our concierge... More

We got in early but Cristhian let us check in early. The room was really nice and had a good bathroom. The innkeeper Cristhian made us feel very welcome, we got wine and snacks before we headed out for dinner. The B&B was in 5min walking distance from St Helena town where all restaurants were located. We had to check... More

This house is lovely. There are little touches like fluffy robes, a porch swing and a 5 pm wine and snack time. Christian was warm, welcoming and attentive to our stay. He made it so pleasurable, we came back for two more nights! The bathtubs alone are worth the stay and the breakfasts were amazing culinary experiences. We also stayed... More

We knew we'd made the right choice when Cristhian, the innkeeper at the Ambrose Bierce Inn, called us to see how we were doing and ensure we were all set for our arrival later that day. It turned out we were closer than expected so we stopped by to check in and drop off the wine we'd purchased in Sonoma... More
