If you're lodging in Wine Country, book here. For all the amenities and service, you're getting a great deal. Every morning the breakfast was unique and tasty. The service was top notch. Our room was modern and spacious. Jim and Jamie were very gracious and gave us more recommendations than we could fit in our time spent in the area.... More

Dear ChadFuber: It's always nice to hear our guests value the experience here. Sure, you can find less expensive places to stay, but we agree the amenities, and rooms, the concierge service and especially Jim's wonderful breakfasts are worth the price of admission. We'd like to think everyone will want to stay here, that's our goal! However our guests consistently... More

The Inn on First is amazing. Working as a Director of Sales at a luxury beach resort in Florida I did not want to stay at another hotel/resort.

This was my first stay at a bed and breakfast and I didn't know exactly what to expect. My 3 day stay with Jim and Jamie probably spoiled me for life! I didn't want to leave them.

I wish I could give The Inn on First six stars on TripAdvisor- that's how much we loved our stay here. This was easily, hands-down the best B&B at which we have ever stayed. The rooms were big and comfortable, and the entire property has this relaxing, peaceful quality to it. We stayed three nights, and I wish we could... More

You know you're enjoying yourself and your surroundings when you just wished you could live there. If you are remotely in the area, it is worth it to make this place your home-base while visiting the area.

An amazing property and even better owners/inn-keepers. I told Jamie upon our departure from the inn that they seem to have inn-keeping down to a science.

Although we live in the Bay Area, this was our first overnight trip together to Napa. The Inn on First was a great find.

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
