My wife and I stayed at The Inn on First during a recent wine tasting trip to Napa. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The proprietors, Jim and Jamie, were extremely friendly and helpful. Jamie was very knowledgeable about the small, more intimate wineries and which restaurants are worth the price. Jim makes the most incredible breakfast....

Dear Brett1963: Thanks for the vote of confidence in changing your homebound flight so you could stay for breakfast! We appreciate it very much. It was fun for me to help choose the right wineries for you to visit, and trust me there is "something for everyone" here in Napa. That's the beauty of this place. We'd be thrilled to...

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
