Our Napa trip was nice but was overshadowed by our experience at the Inn. Jamie and Jim make you feel like family! My favorite Napa memory was sitting on the serene side patio, with humming birds floating by, eating an unforgettable breakfast, All I could think about was "if this isn't nice I don't know what is!. We arrived late... More

This was the first time my husband and I were in California and the first time we've stayed at a B&B. Let me tell you, all the fears I had when booking immediately went away. The room was immaculate and very very nice with clean private bathrooms. The restaurant list they provided was spot on. It was a 5 minute... More

We were so fortunate to spend 3 nights in early August at The Inn on First. Yes, the Trip Adviser reviews had been exceptional, but what had not been fully communicated was how much personal caring Jim and Jamie shower on their guests. Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, was thoughtfully prepared and made available to us to maximize our relaxation... More

We took our first trip to California and stayed a night here. It was by far our favorite part of the trip! Jim and Jamie were excellent.

What a find! This beautiful home and adjacent building are top notch. Jim & Jamie run a very nice Inn that includes a treat at breakfast everyday that is probably unlike anything you've experienced at a B&B. Our travel friends enjoyed the Schnauzer trio too as they recently lost their Tux after 17 years. The Inn is easy walking distance... More

Comfy room with lush bed, elegant common spaces, inviting gardens for breakfast or relaxation (including fire pit at night), delicious breakfasts, gracious and inviting hosts, off-street parking, convenient location for a walk into town - what's not to like?

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 130 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
