Very nice bed and breakfast. Cozy and welcoming. Cindy was very attentive. Room was spacious and bed comfortable. Breakfast delicious. Like in an old house floors squeak so you can hear room neighbors come in and out wheeling luggage... Otherwise perfect. Will definitely recommend

We stayed here while traveling with another couple through the wine country. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the rooms and especially the bathroom. The building and grounds overall were beautiful and it was a great location - just a few minutes walk to downtown. Jim made excellent breakfasts and had solid recommendations for restaurants and wineries to... More

Before our trip to Napa, I corresponded with Jim and Jamie (the owners) who were so wonderful! They gave me a lot of advice and recommendations and helped me finalize my itinerary for our wedding anniversary getaway.

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
