This quaint Bed and Breakfast was the best place to stay for our first trip to Napa. The house was beautiful and cozy, nothing like waking up on a chilly Napa morning to a warm fireplace, fresh coffee and breakfast with a capital B. Every morning of our 3 day stay was a culinary delight. Jim and Jamie were wonderful...

I planned a trip for three days in wine country for eight couples and Jim and Jamie delivered on every detail. Quick summary...the breakfasts were incredible.

The hospitality was over...

As an experienced hotel guest, spending approximately 60-75 nights per year in an hotel or bed and breakfast, I have come to understand what quality service is and what to expect.

If there is ever a perfect B&B, this could be it. The location, hospitality, food (Jim's breakfast and cookies!) and the overall etho are definitely five out of five!

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
