I chose this place to surprise my five girlFRIENDS on a weekend get away to celebrate two of their birthdays. We could not have been more pleased with our rooms, the hospitality and the breakfasts...not to mention ALL the attention to detail Jim & Jamie put into their Inn on First!! All six of us will come again either together...

Dear JPfromTracy: Aww... you made it so easy for us! We were both so happy the six of you enjoyed your time here, and we were a team when it came to choosing restaurants and wineries. It takes two to tango, right? :) We look forward to hosting you all again, and I'm confident you'll enjoy all Napa has to...

Jamie and Jim have an amazing property with excellent service. It was a quiet place for us to stay while enjoying the wine country of Napa Valley. Once you stay there they treat you like one of the family.

My husband and I stayed here in April of 2013 and we are just dying to get back! I cannot say enough good things about this experience - from pre-planning through our departure, everything was just perfect.

The innkeepers, Jim and Jaime, made our trip. We booked a last minute trip to Napa without planning anything. Jaime planned a wonderful vacation for us based on our interests and suggested some amazing wineries to visit. On top of that, Jim started each of our days with a delicious breakfast that was just enough to prepare us for a...

Dear 825Happy: We're both really happy the last minute trip was such a success for you! There is plenty to do hear that can be planned at the last minute, I guess it's the beauty of Napa and the Napa Valley.

The Inn on First is the perfect B&B destination. The stay was comfortable and the company was perfect. Jamie and Jim know Napa and helped us organize the perfect weekend. The location is great for walking downtown to dinner and the accomodations are unbeatable. The brunch prepared for us was the best meal we had in Napa (Michelin-starred restaurants included)....

We just stayed for two nights around New Year's Eve and the service was great! The house was elegantly decorated for the holidays. The breakfasts were delicious and sumptuous.

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
