Good location in terms of walking distance to shops, comfortable decor and the on-site manager was excellent in helping us map out our plans. Friendly atmosphere of a B&B with the guests trading stories in the evening and at breakfast.

Inn St. Helena was great from start to finish. Madeline took care of our every need and prepared delicious breakfasts. Our room was actually MUCH nicer than what the pictures on their website show, so keep that in mind. There is great dining and wine tasting within an easy drive or ride, and downtown St Helena is a great place...

First time at a B&B and I didn't know was to expect. I was bit weary of staying at a B&B because of not having privacy and having to mix with other guests. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we were left alone and did not feel the pressure to chit/chat with other guests. The room was beautiful and...

Staying in a Bed and Breakfast is very different. You are a guest in my home. That makes it more intimate and cozy. But as you noted we give you as much privacy as you like. We are on site and available should you need anything but if you would rather not be disturbed we understand. Thank you for staying...

We recently stayed the entire Thanksgiving Holiday with our extended family in the Cottage House at Inn St Helena. We also had 3 children under 5 which sometimes is hard at B and B's, but Inn St Helena was very kid friendly. :) Every amenity was thought of, if or when we needed it, it was magically already there. Exceptionally...

I was very impressed with Inn St Helena. The rooms was very comfortable and very quiet. It was a great place to relax.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn St. Helena. It's in a great location and parking is easy. If you enjoy walking Beringer Winery is close by.

Spent a long weekend here for a wedding in a nearby winery. Good location right on Main Street in St Helena, within walking distance of the downtown shops and restaurants.

The location can't be any better, walking distance to everything and stumble distance back. Great parking area on the property. The number of great wineries in the vicinity is incredible. Just make sure you reserve way in advance, we reserved 4 wineries per day. This gave us some room to add some interesting drive bye's.

I loved the "stumble back distance" remark in your review. I would much rather see you stumble back than drive back...It was a fun time had by all and nobody got hurt...I have only been here a short time but I absolutely adore the folks who come stay here.

Spent 3 nights here and just not up to par. Staff are very helpful, but for a B&B they're not on site so if you need something after hours you're out of luck.

The Bamboo room is a great room and you are right after a day of wine tasting that steam shower will bring you back to life in a hurry. I am one who loves spicy food and it is hard to reign me in on the spices. I do however have to appeal to all of our guests so I...
