Inn Policies

Amenities, Policies & Groups

THERE ARE NO TELEVISIONS.  With extra large soaking tubs for two and gas fireplaces in every room we believe televisions get in the way of intimacy and romance for couples.  We do provide free wireless internet access for those who need to stay connected with the outside world while on vacation.WE ARE A SMOKE-FREE PROPERTY.  

No matter where one smoked on the property it was noticed by other guests so we felt it best to not allow smoking anywhere on the premises.


As a courtesy to our other guests who are on romantic getaways, we respectfully request no children, no exceptions.

Many of our guests are raising children of their own and seek a quiet, romantic getaway to perhaps become reacquainted and recharge their batteries.  With an open fireplace in the living room, gas fireplaces and two person soaking tubs in every room, the pond in the patio area, and the presence of three small (but very well behaved) dogs that live at the inn and are unaccustomed to being around children, we believe our inn is not an appropriate lodging facility for all children

Additional Guests per Room

We can provide up to one extra cot in one of our larger suites (the only two rooms that can accommodate up to 3 guests with a roll-away bed): Noble Vineyard or Vintage Reserve.   Additional charges apply for extra guests.

Pet Policies of The Inn

Let your beloved canine pal travel in splendor with you during your next stay at The Inn on First… where dogs are welcome in 3 of our 10 rooms. Whether you’re checked in for work or play, or you’re spending a romantic getaway with a special someone, what could be more wonderful than having your favorite furry friend with you during your stay? Lodging in Napa at the Inn on First is much more enjoyable when your pet can join you!  The historic mansion is a dog-free zone so no Mansion rooms are available for traveling with your pet.

Three of our Garden Suites rooms (Meritage, Incantment & Heritage Estate) are available for you to reserve as they are spacious and accommodating for your canine companion.  In fact, we will not only welcome your furry friend, we’ve created a special program to make their Napa Bed and Breakfast experience as wonderful as yours.
