Jim and Jamie are the epitome of excellence. The attention to detail, from dietary requirements to day trip recommendations, was outstanding and unmatched. We enjoyed all of the suggestions that were given to us for the wineries and restaurants. When we come back to Napa, we will definitely stay here again!

This was our third stay at The Inn On First in Napa, the previous two were just my wife and me. This time we brought along our two adult daughters and stayed in two rooms in the main house. We all had such a great time relaxing together in the main living room enjoying the freshly backed cookies and port...

My boyfriend and I came to Napa for my first visit. I had never stayed at a B&B before so wasn't sure what to expect. We had an awesome time. Jim and Jamie made us feel like we all had been friends for a long time. The food and service, along with rooms and amenities were perfect. I was so...

We stayed a week at The Inn on First. Our first visit to Napa with time to explore, Jim and Jaime are the best hosts! The Inn itself is fabulous, from the jetted tubs to the comfy beds with amazing linens and then there's all the little details covered, picnic backpacks and water bottles. Not to mention Jim's breakfast which...

The Inn on First. Only stay elsewhere if this inn is full, or as my sister said, “If here are no vacancies, I can wait.” Innkeepers Jamie and Jim are pros. Their warm and friendly personalities made my sister and me feel like family. Our room was spacious and lovely. Breakfast... ahh, breakfast… served on the beautiful patio and delicious....

Christine and Cathleen, we’re thrilled to know you had such a wonderful time! We could never resist sharing the area with our guests and be it on foot or during our day out, we’re glad so many fantastic memories were made. Best of luck on the hunt for your socks, and enjoy the cookbook!

We loved our stay at The Inn on First. It was very clean and in a great location. Jim and Jamie were very helpful with reservations and recommendations on where to go. Breakfast was great, Jim is a wonderful chief. You can't go wrong with this B&B.

I didn't tell my husband that there was no TV and at first he was bothered by that. We filled our entire days with trips, shopping, and great food and drinks. There were so many different types of books to look through at the BnB that we focused on Autos and classic quotes and movies. Plenty of quiet relaxing time....

Jim and Jamie are simply the best. When you check in, they walk you around the property and get you acquainted with the grounds.

This was my first visit to Napa. It consisted of a short two night stay, we squeezed in a day of wine tasting and a day of exploring the downtown Napa area.

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
