This was our second time staying at the Inn on First and we highly recommend it to anyone interested in staying in Napa. Jim and Jamie are such personable and kind hosts. The Inn is beautiful, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfasts are always delicious! We wish we lived closer so we could stay more often!

Yes the place is pretty, the room was great, great water pressure etc. and they serve a real breakfast. What makes the Inn on First outstanding is Jim and Jamie. Jim makes a gourmet breakfast every day (although I think I would not mind fresh home made doughnuts every day). On top of that Jim and Jamie are a font...

Just checked out of an absolutely first class 3 day stay. Breakfasts were excellent and, typical of our hosts attention to detail, were tailored to guests individual dietary needs. Breakfast time was very convenient with an open window from 8:30 - 10. Jim's cookies were a hit all day long. We stayed in one of the garden suites that accommodated...

My husband and I wanted a small and private ceremony in Napa. We found Inn on First based on excellent internet reviews and have no regrets. Everything was perfect.

We truly enjoyed our three night stay in Napa. Jim and Jamie and the Inn on First exceeded our expectations. If you are like us and utilize on line review sites, sometimes you wonder how accurate the reviews really are. In this case more than five stars are warranted. The inn in super clean, very comfortable with so many thoughtful...

We are familiar with Napa and wanted to stay somewhere special for our son's wedding. Knowing the location of "The Inn On First", I knew it would be excellent for walking downtown.

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
