It has been nearly a year since being at Inn on First, but the wonderful joy of life was on full display and we were greeted most warmly by Jamie and Jim. It felt like being with great relatives--ones that appreciated us (and our large dog). The room was even more spacious than we remembered last time. Every detail is...

Thank you for returning to The Inn on First! It was such a pleasure welcoming you and your dog back into our home. Your many kind words about our private garden rooms and Jim’s amazing baking are much appreciated. Attention to detail is something we’re very proud of, and it’s quite heartwarming to receive such generous compliments. Thank you again...

We stayed with Jim and Jaime in their beautifully decorated home after spending three days in San Francisco. What can I say! It was simply wonderful. We can start with breakfast in the dining room, what an experience! We ate at some wonderful restaurants both in San Francisco and Napa but breakfasts from Jim's kitchen were my favorite meals! I...

Had an awesome stay! Breakfast was out of this world. Tip notch staff! It was great eating breakfast with the other guests and sharing stories about what wineries we went to the day before and where we were headed that day.

A girlfriend and I stayed at the Inn on First when we decided on a girl's trip to Napa. We were worried that we might feel out of place since we were friends instead of a couple staying at a B&B. I am glad we made the decision to stay at the Inn because it was a wonderful experience. Jamie...

My husband and our little dog gathered with friends to celebrate my 50th birthday. We reserved the Inn on First primarily because it looked so quaint and is dog friendly.

The Inn On First is the best place my husband and I have ever stayed. The home is beautiful and welcoming; the rooms are cozy and home-like, quiet, and provide all amenities one could ask for; the gardens are spectacular; the breakfast is all homemade and far outshines any gourmet restaurant; but most importantly Jim and Jamie made our family...

This place was a little slice of heaven. The rooms were clean and luxurious, the grounds were stunning, and the amenities were extensive. Jim and Jamie made us feel taken care of and relaxed the minute we arrived. They gave us wonderful recommendations and were incredibly considerate about our dietary restrictions - and to that point the breakfasts were amazing!...

I planned a night away for my wife's birthday and booked the Inn on First. Where to start? The place is beautiful! The room was huge, quiet and had every small touch planned out. Homemade truffles, split of champagne, iPad with 100's of songs loaded, huge whirlpool tub. In the Inn, there are cookies and port around the clock. Ok,...

Go here for the wine tour. One of our hosts, Jamie, got us into fine wineries we never would have visited on our own. We ended up blowing lots of money on exquisite varietals and blends, but if you are not interested in wine, why would you visit Napa at all?

Had never stayed in a B&B before. Took the plunge with this lovely place. Had to pay around US$800 plus for 2 nights stay. We were given a corner, ground floor room near to the guest's parking.

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
