My wife and I stayed at the Inn on First for the first few days of our honeymoon. Neither one of us had been to California and were not sure what to expect in Napa. We booked the Inn on First simply from the incredible reviews from this website. This place surpassed our expectations and it was a WONDERFUL place. We stayed in one of the Honeymoon Suites (Noble Vineyard) in the Garden Suites behind the house. The room was wonderful (look at the pictures on their website) but the highlights of our stay were our mornings spent eating breakfast in the garden. They were relaxing, intimate, and above all else delicious. Jim prepared fantastic breakfasts and we are still talking about them a week later.
One of the other reasons the Inn on First was so wonderful was Jamie. He was a HUGE help to us while we were in town. We are not too experienced or knowledgable with wine but he made sure to send us to some incredible wineries. He was always extremely friendly and we noticed that every single morning he talked to everyone at breakfast to make sure they had a plan for the day.
As we left, we couldn't help but wish we could stay at the Inn for at least one more night. It truly is as wonderful as these reviews say it is. When we make it out to Napa again, we are definitely staying at the Inn on First.
- 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
