The Inn on First was the perfect place to stay during our anniversary trip to Napa. Jim and Jamie immediately felt like family and made sure that we had a great time. Each morning started with a gourmet breakfast and discussion of the day's itinerary. Jim and Jamie have so much knowledge to share about activities in Napa, practically guaranteeing...

My husband and I stayed at the Inn on First last March. It was a fantastic experience, and when we return to Napa (hopefully sooner rather than later), I will not bother considering a different place to stay. Jim and Jamie were hospitable without being intrusive, extremely knowledgeable, and simply great, kind people. The Inn is lovely - beautiful without...

We loved The Inn on First. My partner and I planned a last-minute New Year's getaway to Napa. Jim and Jamie are fabulous inkeepers. They were incredibly responsive to every request, they warmly received us after we experienced luscious massages at Napa Wellness Center. We opted to have a "picnic" in our room instead of dining out. They provided everything...

I am not sure where to begin with our praises of the Inn on First and owners Jamie and Jim. Their hospitality is above and beyond anything we have ever experienced before, it feels as if you are a guest in their home. They are so warm, welcoming and genuinely care about not only your experience at the Inn but...

Is there something that Jim and Jamie have not considered to make your stay more comfortable? If there is, I couldn't tell you. From the sweet cookie welcome to the sad, full belly checkout the next morning, our stay was perfect. They make great use of technology without it being intrusive...the iPads sit subtly in each guest room with everything...

Loved the Inn on First in Napa that has a few garden rooms for travelers with dogs. The garden is charming and the social gathering spots in the main house (no dogs here) allow guests to enjoy conversation by the fireside. The innkeepers are friendly and make you feel comfortable right away. The rooms were spacious and welcoming with a...

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
