We stayed with Jim and Jamie in early April 2017. Their B&B is fantastic. The location is walking distance to all that downtown Napa has to offer. Breakfast was an absolute treat where you got to meet some of the other guests as well as spend time talking to Jim and Jamie; and the food was delicious! We also had...

My wife and I stayed with Jim and Jamie 16-21 April 2017. It was our fist holiday to Napa Valley and Jim and Jamie made it the most incredible holiday ever. Up front their property is simply stunning from the beautiful accommodations to Jamie's gourmet breakfasts. This location is a perfect base to set off on your exploration of the...

I did a lot of research in looking for a cute, quiet, quaint and affordable B&B in the near downtown Napa area for my stay in the first week of April. I could not of done any better! Jim and Jamie are hands down some the most attentive, respectful, appreciative, enjoyable, loving, kind, sociable, knowledgable, and helpful people (not just...

I knew our experience in the Inn on the First was 5-Stars well before stepping in the Property. It was our first trip to Napa Valley (long overdue) and my partner and I had been researching wineries and restaurants for so long that its easy to be overwhelmed...over 400 wineries in Napa alone...however, booking this Bed n Breakfast was n...

We had an unbelievable time staying at the Inn on First. Beautiful room, fantastic service and amenities, and first class breakfast every morning! From the minute we walked in, we were like family and were treated as such the whole duration of our stay. We had to leave early Sunday to catch our flight, which meant we were missing breakfast,...

This was our second stay at The Inn on First, and it was as amazing as we remembered. Jim and Jamie are fantastic hosts... welcoming, warm, accommodating and full of helpful advice. We have now stayed in the main and back building, and both times the rooms were beautifully appointed, cozy and comfortable... with personal touches like delicious home made...

I'm not sure how Jim and Jamie do everything they do but they really do think of everything. My husband and I visited Napa for the first time, and stayed here after a friend of mine gave it a very enthusiastic recommendation. This was a bit of a splurge for us (although for Napa standards still very reasonable) because normally...

I can't recommend the Inn On First enough. The moment I arrived I felt relaxed and in the vacation mood. The rooms and gardens are idyllic and the staff is wonderfully accommodating and welcoming. On top of all this, the breakfasts are superb and the private wine tour is perfect! We spent a long weekend here for a gal's trip,...

My husband and I had been planning our trip to Napa for a few years, so many hours of research went into our decisions for the trip. I can't tell you how many B&Bs and hotels I looked at, but when I came across the Inn on First, I knew I had found a gem! At first I was skeptical,...

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
