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...

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. Exceptionally...

I was very impressed with Inn St Helena. The rooms was very comfortable and very quiet. It was a great place to relax. We had breakfast in the morning, which was very nice and all the coffee we could drink. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. We like how close the inn is to downtown St. Helena. We walked...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Inn St. Helena. It's in a great location and parking is easy. If you enjoy walking Beringer Winery is close by. We stayed in the Loft which had all the comforts of home and walked to Safeway to get what we needed for dinner. We will definitely stay here the next time we...

Spent a long weekend here for a wedding in a nearby winery. Good location right on Main Street in St Helena, within walking distance of the downtown shops and restaurants. Nice upgraded bathrooms in rooms with a big steam shower and heated floors. Beds were super comfortable. They prepare breakfast every morning in a common area outside the rooms. I...

The location can't be any better, walking distance to everything and stumble distance back. Great parking area on the property. The number of great wineries in the vicinity is incredible. Just make sure you reserve way in advance, we reserved 4 wineries per day. This gave us some room to add some interesting drive bye's.

Spent 3 nights here and just not up to par. Staff are very helpful, but for a B&B they're not on site so if you need something after hours you're out of luck. Bed is comfortable but room and bath tired and need some work. Lukewarm shower not the way you want to start your day! Breakfast is very nice,...

Inn St. Helena was definitely a great new B&B find for us last April! We try to go to Napa Valley once a year and mostly stay in B&B's. We stayed in the "Bamboo" room in the Cottage House and loved it! The room was very spacious, had a very comfortable bed and the attached bathroom had an amazing walk...

Great location. Lovely Room, a little hot and could not control the temperature of the room (upstairs). No air conditioning. Fortunately, our visit was end of September and at night could open the windows and it had a good ceiling fan. Also, the property next door was under construction and started banging and making noise early. Could walk to downtown...
