I was sent an email with detailed instructions for after hours check in; the instructions were clear and precise! We were greeted by Jamie the next morning while Chef Jim was in the kitchen preparing the first of...

My husband and I love to travel. Went to a lot of different places and tried a lot of B&B. This is by far one of the best. Room is clean, decor is nice. Everything we need is there and more. Great recommendation of dinner choice. We are not much of talker so did not chat with owner much, but...

After having a bad B & B experience many years ago I have avoided them. But we decided after many recommendations to try a B & B in Napa. We chose the Inn on First due to its walking location to downtown Napa restaurants and the rooms looked very cute. It was also less expensive than some of the hotels...

This is a very nice place, very clean and details are well thought out. Very romantic and the food is all home made. Cookies and port were wonderful, as was the breakfast. They even provide a stocked back pack & all you have to do is add the food! My only issue is that we had a room at the...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn on First last March. It was a fantastic experience, and when we return to Napa (hopefully sooner rather than later), I will not bother considering a different place to stay.

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
