The inn is in a great location in St Helena. The on site manager was great and very helpful with dinner reservations. The breakfast was excellent everyday. The evening wine and snacks was a nice touch

One of the things I cherish most about living in St. Helena is the fact that I can walk my dog anytime and feel safe. We go out at different times and I have never been uncomfortable even at night.

Thank you for your kind review. Victor Edleman is the one responsible for our delicious breakfasts. He taught me everything I know about inn keeping and was a wonderful teacher.

This was our second stay at Inn St Helena and it was just as fabulous as the first. The property is well-located with an easy walk to so many shops and restaurants and even some wine tasting. Loved our room and the breakfast spread each morning. We'll be back!

We recently returned from an incredible stay at the Inn St Helena. The B&B is walking distance to pretty much everything in St. Helena (check out Archetype on the next block for an amazing meal).

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel extremely welcome by Vick & Madeline, the Innkeepers. It was a prefect location to explore plenty of wineries and in walking distance to shops & restaurants.

Loved having ya'll and it was a great time had by all. We are in the process of doing some terrific upgrades to the Inn.

We recently revisited the Inn, St Helena, and it was better than I remembered from my earlier visit.

First, the positives: this b&b is in a great location and has lovely rooms. Wine and cheese in the afternoon is a nice touch. But the negatives are significant enough that I would not return. The first issue is that the inn lists on its website that a discount is available for those attending the Culinary Institute of America at...
