Jim and Jaime are fantastic hosts. We were greeted warmly and check in was smooth. We stayed in the annex and our room was fantastic. Private patio, jetted tub, and the best was no TV. My wife and I enjoyed time to reconnect and get away from the noise in our normal lives. Breakfast was amazing, as usual, and we... More

Carlos, It is lovely to read how much you loved your stay in our Garden Suites annex room. We feel the absence of TVs allow our guests to truly relax and reconnect; and we are so happy you agree. You and your wife were lovely to host! Thanks for being a part of our Inn on First family! More

So many positives, so I'll mention just a few. A panoply of amazing teas are available 24/7. The living room is spacious and comfortable and enhanced by remarkable floor lamps (on timers... no need to turn them on and off!). A short walk to downtown Napa. Jamie and Jim are great. They'll tell you about local things to do (such... More

We had only one night in Napa on our 16 day West Coast Road Trip and we wish we could have stayed in Napa and this place longer. We arrived early and left our bags with housekeeping and ventured into town. Loved your little centre with Oxbow market and all the lovely shops/restaurants. The room was lovely. Although small we...

We stayed for 2 nights while visiting Napa on a road trip to celebrate our 15th anniversary. Jim and Jamie were fantastic, providing some of the best breakfast I've ever had - Jim is truly a phenomenal chef!!

This is the second year in a row we have come back to this place. Very friendly and informative owners. Gave us great tips on where to visit with my limited mobility parents.

For our first trip to Napa and our first B&B experience, our expectations were incredibly high.

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
