“Must Visit Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

We just stayed three nights at this B and B. It was great and a highlight of our trip to SF/Napa. The breakfast was amazing and the Inn Keeper was very hospitable and nice. Everything about the room, Elizabeth, was clean and the sheets were amazing. If you are going with a B and B style lodging then you must consider this one. It is a short walk to Main Street.

Room Tip: We slept in the Elizabeth, it was a king size bed with a sitting area. Large jacuzzi tub/shower and...

Wonderful, quaint place to stay close to the downtown area. Breakfast every morning and snacks available at night. The staff was very friendly, polite, and helpful. The garden is under construction currently, but will be a nice addition when it's finished.

Stayed with my girlfriend in the Merlot room for our weekend trip to Napa for wine-tasting, and from check-in to check-out it was absolutely amazing. The rooms were gorgeous, the sit-down breakfast every day was delicious, there was champagne waiting in our room at check-in, the location was right in downtown napa. I really have nothing but amazing things to say about this place, and highly recommend it.

We are so happy you enjoyed the Merlot room. It is the largest room in the Main inn and those stained glass windows are a knockout! Our porches are a great spot to enjoy afternoon wine and warch the world go by.

We stayed in the Buckley suite for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience. The 2BR suite was lovely and spacious - with kitchenette, large living room with gas fireplace, and outdoor porch. We were delighted to find such thoughtful amenities in the suite when we arrived - homemade cookies, champagne, truffles, snacks and more. The daily breakfast also surpassed our expectations - delicious homemade scones, french toast souffle, etc. Georgia and her team are so hospitable and attentive, making us feel right at home. The location is convenient and centrally located, on a quiet street within 5 min walk to downtown Napa. We would definitely stay at La Belle Epoque on our next trip to Napa!

We are so happy you enjoyed the Buckley Suite. It is actually a 2 bedroom apartment where my husband and I used to live. WE loved its peace and quite and privacy plus the 2nd floor deck (with awning). It also has a 40" TV. How could you go wrong?

My boyfriend and I stayed at La Belle Epoque for 3 nights and loved it for so many reasons!

A few days before our trip we decided that we'd be coming into Napa a day early. I emailed and asked if our suite (The Elizabeth) was available that night. It wasn't, but another room was, and we added it to the reservation no problem. When it came time to switch rooms, the staff moved all our belongings to our other room, which I found very nice.

The bubbly and truffles in the room upon check in was awesome. It's a good way to kick off a vacation.

In the main house they have a hospitality area with fresh baked cookies, crackers, fresh fruit, a Keurig, water, etc. Very nice if you have a late check-in or get the midnight munchies. They also have a decent DVD collection, and it was nice to watch a movie in bed when we got back from a day of wine drinking and walking around!

Speaking of wine drinking, they gave us several 2-for-1 wine tasting vouchers and another voucher for 2 complimentary tastings, all within walking distance of each other. We got away will spending less than $40 for a day of sipping wine! (not including the bottles we bought, of course)

In the Elizabeth Suite, all of the amenities mentioned above are IN the room! They even have luxurious bubble bath in the cabinet to use with the over-sized jetted jacuzzi tub.

The beds in both rooms were very comfortable. Both rooms came with extra pillows (which is important for me!) and the sheets and bedding were soft and high quality. They had several bathroom amenities, including shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, cotton swabs, makeup removing towelettes, a shower cap, etc. Very thoughtful!

The breakfast each morning was absolutely wonderful. A word to the wise though, it's served strictly from 9am to 9:30am. Arrive late and you miss it! However, if you anticipate that you'll miss it, just let them know and they'll box it up for you. I am going to upload some pictures because the presentation was simply beautiful! It's a 3 course breakfast, too!

All in all - I was pleasantly surprised by my first Napa B&B experience. We will definitely return.

We stayed here on our honeymoon and it was just great! The house is beautiful. We stayed in the Zinfandel room which was very nicly decorated and cozy. Breakfast every morning was delicious and different each time. There were cookies available in the hall every evening which were also delicious. We didn't get a chance to take advantage of the Port and Sherry in the entryroom, but it was a nice touch. The staff was very friendly. Very convenient location as it is only a couple blocks to walk to downtown.

You are about a 5 minute walk to downtown Napa, tons of restaurants, shops and tasting rooms (no vineyards in walking distance). You are also about a 3 minute drive to Highway 29 (go north), where you will find many of the wineries and vineyards. The Inn sits in a quiet neighborhood, but at a 4 way stop sign. Although the Inn itself is quiet, you can hear some cars/trucks.
The room itself was excellent, clean, cozy, fireplace and a 2 person jacuzzi. Snacks and champagne were provided.
The food was excellent, staff was very accommodating for special food accommodations .
The main problem was the "improvements." I had read in previous reviews that the improvements were "expected to be completed by early June." Well that was not the case, there was banging going on at 8 am the first morning, which unfortunately woke us both up. After breakfast (9:00), we headed back to the room to get ready for the day and all we heard was a jackhammer, yes a jackhammer. I believe they were breaking up the outside patio in the back. We were not really warned about any of this and it is not listed on their website. I would have given this place a 4, but for that reason it knocked it down to a 3.

Room Tip: I would stay in the main house, in a room not overlooking the street.

We are sorry about the noise and have instructed the landscapers to hold off on noise until after breakfast(10 AM). Most guests have left the Inn by then to explore the valley and taste great wine. I too am most anxious to complete our new gardens for our guests to enjoy. We expect that they will be completed soon.
