We recently stayed at The Ambrose Bierce House for a couple of nights and enjoyed it very much. The location is outstanding as are the breakfast and John's suggestions on what winery's to visit and where to dine after he asked us a few relevant questions. Our room was very comfortable and it was a pleasure to walk to dinner in the quaint town. When we return we will certainly contact John and Lisa and perhaps stay at their other property.
Thank you for a wonderful experience, John and Gina

We loved everything about the Ambrose Bierce House. Even before we arrived, Lisa was doing her thing, getting us reservations at some the best restaurants in the area. Later, during our stay, John gave us perfect advice on places to see, wines to taste. To top all that, the breakfasts were amazing, fantastic, and we thoroughly enjoyed the wine, cheese, and great conversation in the afternoon. We will return to Ambrose Bierce House many times.

We wanted a quaint Napa Valley Inn to have our tiny wedding. The Ambrose Bierce House was exactly as we had hoped. Although John and Lisa had never housed a wedding before, both were excited about the idea and exceptional in helping us to plan, including providing contacts for a florist and a photographer and making all of the necessary arrangements so our special day was wonderful. We were married in the morning and Lisa made sure the inn was cleaned early that day so all of our pictures would be perfect. Our overall experience at Ambrose Bierce was outstanding. The “Mollie Day” room was quite spacious and romantic (especially the fireplace and the jacuzzi), the breakfasts were incredible, and the suggestions given during the eight months of planning were spot on. Thank you again John and Lisa for being so gracious, friendly, and helpful. You were a big part of our perfect wedding vacation. We will return!

Room Tip: The Mollie Day room has a private entrance, a large bath with jacuzzi, and it's own private patio. We loved it!

We stayed at the Ambrose Bierce House for 3 nights over Easter weekend as part of our California road trip. The accommodation is perfectly charming throughout and a real home from home. We found our Edward Muybridge room, although the smallest room, very comfortable and well appointed. The B&B location was just right for us, being a lovely stroll to restaurants in town and the Berringer vineyards where we spent a happy afternoon. We dined at Market one evening and would also recommend that highly - especially the champagne battered fish and chips! We were very appreciative of the courteous and attentive service from Chris. Loved the complimentary wine and cheese hour, hot tub and swing on the front porch. Breakfasts were sumptuous indeed and set us up for the day. Many thanks to Lisa for her kind hospitality (and the birthday waffle!). We would love to return one day and hope to do so.

Room Tip: All rooms good

Great historical home of the famous writer. Read Bierce before you go; not sure why he would have ever fled from St. Helena to Mexico. John was a great host and Lisa was delightful over the phone. Both provided careful insight into our travel agenda. Lovely guests! Would return. ONE PROBLEM: We went there long enough. OH YEAH! John brews a great red.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room downstairs...KING BED, Jacuzzi in the room and outside entrance. Very nice and unbelievable quiet.
