“Bed (aching back) & Breakfast (lacking) - room #2”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The Good:
*Great Location
*Awesome Craftsman Home - Frank Lloyd Wright would be proud!
*Wonderful Handmade Furniture - Stickley has nothing on this furniture maker (Inn owner)
*Very nice innkeeper (young lady employed by 4 sisters)

The Not So Good:
*Breakfast - Not what we have experienced at other Four Sisters Inns - rather lackluster
*Shower Head - need to run around in the tub to get wet

The Bad:
THE BED! The mattress was horrible! My wife and I both had aching backs from our 2 night stay.

We are on our way to two other Four Sisters Inns - Lavender in Yountville and Seal Cove in Moss Beach. I anticipate we will have better reviews to follow.

This could be an exceptional Inn with a few minor upgrades. The Four Sisters Inn Group should require the Inn's owner to make these minor enhancements.

Room Tip: I would ask when the mattress was last replaced.

The service was excellent. I loved coming back here at the end of the day to a glass of wine and some light snacks. Not frilly, but beautifully decorated. My husband is an architect and loved the arts and crafts style of the building. It's not a bad walk to downtown, and you can walk to all the restaurants in the evening (although I wouldn't walk to downtown in heels, it's a bit far for that!) It's such a great location to be able to walk around Downtown Napa!

Room Tip: Tell them you don't want the room by the desk. We didn't have that, but I could see where i...

We went with neighbors who live in a the craftsman-style house and loved this one. We chose a room with a king bed, nice patio and private garden. We enjoyed the breakfasts and wine and cheese afternoon snacks. We stayed on a Sunday and Monday so it was quiet and we also had the place to ourselves. It was as nice as staying at someone's home. We enjoy Napa in the winter because there are discounted rate on the rooms and the wineries are not too crowded. We had fabulous weather which always makes the trip nicer. We hadn't stayed in Napa for a number of years but the town is more interesting now than in the past. There are a number of new restaurants, shops and the Oxbow Market where we picked up a sandwich but there were a number of interesting food options. The inn was conveniently located and walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. We enjoyed it and will return for another stay.

Room Tip: #2 is downstairs with a king bed/ fireplace/ private patio

We got a great last minute deal at this location. I loved the feel of the house. I don't normally like B&Bs, but this place felt more like a ski lodge than a B&B. The breakfast was hot and good, although it is the same every morning. They do allow pets and my dog loved it. The room had a fireplace, and was quite large. The bathroom was nice and again, it was large. There was a balcony/deck off the room. I loved it. I loved the feel of it. If it had been warmer, I could have stayed the entire time on the deck. If you have a pet, there are few better places than Blackbird Inn to stay! The location is just okay- it's not very close to downtown Napa, but if you're wine tasting, you'll be driving anyway! Also, they have an afternoon wine hour- took advantage of that!

A B&B that's not too frilly, not too "shabby chic", not too austere. It is just right. Made moreso by the outstanding internet special we happened upon. The room was small, but not unpleasantly so, the bathroom could use a bit of updating but was always clean and well-kept. The staff was very, very helpful in guiding us to good food, good wineries, and interesting things to do that were off the beaten path. The breakfast and afternoon hospitality were good although since we opted to use the Blackbird as our base of operations for 10 days while we toured Napa Valley, we had a lot of repetition in breakfast quiche and pastries.
Since this was our honeymoon, and my new husband's 1st B&B experience I was concerned that all would go smoothly. My concerns weren't warranted. He enjoyed the B&B so much that we've subsequently stayed in several others.

Room Tip: We had room number 6 and it was snug. We were on our honeymoon so didn't mind :)
