One of Napa’s Top Ranked Bed & Breakfasts


“Jim & Jamie made our trip to Napa AMAZING. They thought of everything in their inn- from the romantic & relaxing playlist and picnic backpacks to the delicious breakfast. They sent us to wineries we would have ever known of, and they were superb. We wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else!”

Casey T. (Trip Advisor Review)

“Our room was charming. The restaurant suggestions were fantastic. Breakfasts were big and wonderful. Jim and Jamie the proprietors run an tight ship! Everything was clean and perfect throughout the room and the property. We would definitely return to the Inn on First Street.

Ryan O. (Trip Advisor Review)

“Jim and Jamie were wonderful hosts – they made us feel right at home. We can’t say enough about the wonderful breakfast and gourmet cookies baked by Jamie and the personal ‘concierge’ service provided by Jamie – we are now spoiled   We will definitely recommend the Inn on First to others and hope to return.”

Jill L. (Trip Advisor Review)

“I came to Napa with my girlfriend planning on proposing! Staying at The inn on first was perfect for us. Jim and Jamie recommended the perfect vineyard and restaurants for our trip and she said Yes!! Everything was perfect with the help of Jim and Jamie. Not to mention, Jim’s culinary expertise is unmatched. We had the most incredible breakfasts and THE COOKIES!! We can’t wait to go back”

Brian D. (Trip Advisor Review)

“This was our first experience with a B&B. Jim and Jamie were awesome (and helpful), the room was comfortable and private (we stayed in the main house), and the breakfast was excellent. The location was easy to find, and was convenient to the downtown area. We left a few days ago, and I’m already ready to go back.”

Catherine B. (Yelp Review)

“Jim and Jamie are fantastic hosts! They were involved in the best day of our lives… Our engagement!  We would recommend The inn on first to ANYONE! Especially those who wish to have a romantic getaway while sharing memories with others! Also, Jim created the most delicious breakfasts and cookies we have ever eaten!!!”

Colleen H. (Yelp Review)

“I stayed here with girlfriends for a birthday weekend celebration. The owners are warm, welcoming and fantastic. The B&B is gorgeous and every room well appointed and modernized without sacrificing aesthetic. And the best part?? The delicious, gourmet breakfast. The Inn is also very close to shopping and restaurants– we walked to our dinner that evening. Will return with my husband!”

O M. (Yelp Review)

“Thank you both Jaime & Jim for your hospitality! Breakfast was phenomenal!
They both are very helpful and are happy to guide you on your visit! The staff is very friendly as well! Rooms are very nice and clean. The one we are staying in has a Heart shaped bathtub! It also has a private patio! It’s detached from the main house. It’s quiet if you are sensitive to noise.

We originally were camping in Tomales bay when our kayaking plans fell off due to weather conditions and we switched our trip destination to Napa. Jim quickly helped with suggestions on where to shop since we didn’t have proper clothes to wear to nice restaurants or vineyards. After breakfast he sat we us and gave us a map of places to visit and we even shared some stories & had some good laughs! While Jaime was making reservations to our wine and food pairing at Swanson!! I love this place and love them! Stay here you won’t regret it!

We also enjoy the music they provided in every room you will find an iPod with great playlist! We really liked that! The shower is spacious and bright.”
