Reviewed 31 March 2014

I have travelled the world and I can say that this is probably one of the best places I have ever stayed. I will never stay anywhere else in Napa because this made it feel more like we stayed at a friend's house then anything else. A lot of the reviews already touch on the highlights of this amazing property...

Dear Kris C: I am a big fan of Angel's Share as well, and for the same reason: lots of natural light. I always enjoy it when guests talk about the iPod because that's my purview and I cannot take one bit of credit for what comes out of the kitchen! Everyone's got access to a refrigerator here, and thanks...

From the personal in-room fireplace to the sensational homemade breakfasts, there is no hotel, inn, or b&b that could possible top this one. Great location, fun amenities and gracious hosts. The breakfasts alone were worth the price. We will be coming back again.

If you are looking for amazing hosts, beautiful accommodations and a truly gourmet breakfast experience in a romantic setting then this is your place. The attention to detail, right down to the music loaded in the IPod in your room, is beyond reproach. Jim and Jamie run the best B & B that we have ever stayed at. Jim's breakfasts...

Just spent 3 nights at the Inn and loved every minute. The Inn is perfectly appointed for your comfort and ease; from great beds, good coffee and homemade breakfast treats to charming hosts with excellent local knowledge and contacts for making everyday special. We will definitely stay there again.

Dear Deborah G: Guests talk a lot about the breakfast (of which we are very proud!) but it's nice to hear about the coffee!

We love the Inn on First and Jim and Jamie. This was our second stay with them and we're already talking about returning. The Inn is beautiful and immaculately clean.

The Inn on First was fantastic. The room was clean, perfectly appointed. We pre-ordered champagne and it was chilled upon arrival. Jimmy and Jamie were perfect hosts.

This is the first time staying at a bed and breakfast and it was an unforgettable experience. I would probably never want to stay in a hotel for a future Napa trip.

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
