The experience was first rate from start to finish. The innkeepers were friendly and very informative, we had gourmet breakfasts every morning with a smile. The B&B is within easy walking distance of downtown Napa, we were given wonderful suggestions for restaurants and various wineries to visit from the hosts.
It's not easy to plan a romantic weekend wine tasting getaway during a pandemic, but The Inn on First made it easy to forget all about it. I spotted it on a review site and decided it looked like it would fit the bill...unique, upscale, and comfortable. I booked room #4 ("The Angel's Share") along with the Lover's Package (heart shaped rose petals on the bed, and a bottle of champagne.) Arrival at the inn was easy. The secluded parking lot in the back has a beautifully landscaped path to the mansion. The grounds are quite enticing, and only built the anticipation in us. Once inside, our room key was easy to obtain. The mansion is beautifully appointed and, if not for covid, it would have been the perfect place to meet and mingle with other guests. All I can say is that the main floor exudes "class." Once in the room, my lady was left speechless by the appearance. Room 4 is spacious, and tastefully decorated with a well planned mix of modern and antique features befitting of a historic mansion. The rose petals on the bed were absolutely amazing and filled the room with a luscious scent. I have roses at home, but none have such amazing petals such as these were! All I can say is that it was over the top! Champagne was at the ready, along with amazing homemade chocolate chip cookies and truffles. Absolute heaven! On top of that, the iPad in the room had romantic music playing, which was a very thoughtful way to set the mood. Very well done! After seeing the room, I completely understand why Jim and Jaime ask the no candles be brought to the inn. So I brought a handful of led votive lights from the dollar store, and that was a perfect substitute! Morning breakfast was absolutely amazing! Ours was a "pop tart" filled with chipotle ricotta topped with an over-medium egg and a berry sauce on the side. Oh my goodness, it was unbelievably delicious! We are already planning a return visit and will book the private wine tour as well. What a perfect escape from the pandemic! It will be hard to imagine how the Inn on First can be better without covid restrictions, but something tells me it is!!…
Perfect location in Napa, quiet cozy area, easy walk to Napa's shops, restaurants, activities! Jamie & Jim, PERFECT hosts! Jim's breakfasts on the patio, oh my! Rooms were so cozy! Visit was FLAWLESS!
The owners are helpful, diligent about cleanliness and go the extra mile in ALL respects! They help with planning by giving list of suggestions, they are always helpful with questions and even help you ship Your wine back home. The breakfasts and truffles are amazing !! I did not know breakfast could be so exquisite.
The Inn is perfectly situated a few short blocks from the main part of town. The rooms are very nice and the breakfasts are fabulous. Jamie and Jim are awesome hosts. We would stay there again. And again.
