We stayed at the Inn on First during August 2013 and loved our stay here. It was just too short! We chose this B&B based on the other reviews on TripAdvisor and I'm so glad we did. As soon as we arrived, Jim showed us around the house and up to our room. They had chocolate truffles and wine waiting...

We came to Napa to celebrate my 50th birthday. The Inn on First made the week quite special for us. Jamie guided us in selecting excellent winery and dining experiences.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn on First for our 10yr. Anniversary and couldn't have chose a better place. After being there a week, you cannot say enough good things about our experience.

The Inn on First needs to be experienced. If you are ever thinking of staying in Wine Country, there is no better place than here. The quality of their services has set a new standard in the B&B world. The breakfast each morning is worth the trip alone. Jim's creations are ever so tasty and original, we miss them already....

I bought my boyfriend here for a weekend getaway and for his birthday. I could not have made a better choice, and actually must thank my sister for the recommendation.

Dear Callmemochelle: Thanks for the rave review. You nailed it! We are not a hotel, nor the place for tv watching. Nor are we inexpensive, but we believe our prices reflect the value of the amenities and features (whirlpool tubs for two, gas fireplaces, etc.) in the rooms, as well as the quality of the food preparation for breakfast, and...

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
