It was charming, comfortable and warm. Had a relaxing two days. It was in walking distance to town. The manager was charming and helpful. Great breakfast which we enjoyed with the other guests. Looking forward to my return

My stay at the Inn was perfect -- we had 5 couples in between the Inn and side house for a friend's weekend. We were able to cook, hang out and come and go as we pleased. Plus, Madeline was only a phone call away and was very accommodating. We could easily walk into down to many shops, restaurants, and...

Why it was my pleasure to have you as my guests. You guys were not trouble. It was fun having all the wedding guests staying here. It was funny that everyone made individual reservations so I did not connect the dots. Everyone kept saying they were here for a wedding. Finally everyone figured out they were all going to the...

This was our second visit to the Inn. On this visit, we stayed in the main house in the Molly B room on the first floor. The room was spacious with a large bathroom and a private patio. The room was well appointed with a fireplace and lovely amenities. Coffee and tea were available 24 hours and the breakfast and...

I am so glad you enjoyed the wood floors. I am really proud of those. We redid the whole bottom floor. Also we ripped up the carpet upstairs and we found real redwood flooring in great shape so we just refinished those. The house is so lovely and we are very proud. Please come back and stay with us anytime....

Other than a little hiccup during the check in process, our stay at Inn St Helena was excellent. The house is very spacious and accommodated the 3 couples staying there nicely. You cannot beat the location. We are excited for our return trip sometime next year!

Good location in terms of walking distance to shops, comfortable decor and the on-site manager was excellent in helping us map out our plans. Friendly atmosphere of a B&B with the guests trading stories in the evening and at breakfast.

Inn St. Helena was great from start to finish. Madeline took care of our every need and prepared delicious breakfasts. Our room was actually MUCH nicer than what the pictures on their website show, so keep that in mind. There is great dining and wine tasting within an easy drive or ride, and downtown St Helena is a great place...

First time at a B&B and I didn't know was to expect. I was bit weary of staying at a B&B because of not having privacy and having to mix with other guests. I was pleasantly surprised to find that we were left alone and did not feel the pressure to chit/chat with other guests. The room was beautiful and...

Staying in a Bed and Breakfast is very different. You are a guest in my home. That makes it more intimate and cozy. But as you noted we give you as much privacy as you like. We are on site and available should you need anything but if you would rather not be disturbed we understand. Thank you for staying...

We recently stayed the entire Thanksgiving Holiday with our extended family in the Cottage House at Inn St Helena. We also had 3 children under 5 which sometimes is hard at B and B's, but Inn St Helena was very kid friendly. :) Every amenity was thought of, if or when we needed it, it was magically already there.
