Where do I start? My wife and I searched for a place to stay for just a one night get away because we wanted to be married in Napa. She came across this Inn and fell inlove with the pictures and wonderful reviews. Come to find out, it was everything we hoped for and read about. Jamie was the first...

We just returned to Colorado after a long weekend in Napa, and we can't say enough about the Inn on First and the attentiveness of owners Jim and Jamie. On several occasions we found ourselves noting that they have thought of everything, and more. The Inn is a beautiful mansion just a few blocks from downtown Napa-- well within walking...

My wife and I combined a work trip with a mini-vacation up in Napa. We wanted our Napa visit to be one where we didn't have to do a lot of pre-planning - where we left the itinerary in the hands of a knowledgeable local small business to deliver us to good wineries and point us to great food. The...

We've just come back from another wonderful time at the Inn on First. We go up to Napa once a year or so, mostly because we have such a wonderful time at Jamie and Jim's hospitable B&B. Their hospitality is off the charts, the food is amazing and the rooms are luxurious and restful. Jim is a trained chef who...

My wife and I recently stayed at the Inn on First in Napa. We were celebrating my recovery from an illness and wanted to pamper ourselves.

I am overdue for this review. We recently went back to the Inn on First for a no-kid weekend. We have been there several times, once a year or every other year. The house has never looked better in all the years we've been coming. Both the main house and the garden were in tip-top shape this last time around....

Terrible experience! We wanted to try something different from hotels when we travel. So I decided on This B&B....bad mistake! Jim(I don't remember his name because he didn't introduce himself) hardly looked at us in the eye or smiled during the check in process. He seemed frazzled! His partner however welcomed us into their home a little while later and...

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
