Each day there was a fresh tasty breakfast both fresh fruit and a hot entree. My husband and I loved the meals and afternoon snacks of homemade cookies.

My wife and I stayed here for a night and we both loved it. The hosts were incredibly nice, friendly, helpful and we loved absolutely everything about this place. Our only regret was we stayed for just one night but we will make sure to remedy that on the next visit.

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights in the Napa region and stayed at the Inn on First. We couldn't be more pleased with our 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
