Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2017

We have been coming to the 1801 Inn on First a few times since first coming to Napa 16 years ago. While the ownership may have changed since then, this is still a wonderful get away from large resorts or expensive boutique places available around.

We arrived late on a Thursday for a long weekend. A note was left with clear instructions on how to get our key and how to get to our room. Since we arrived so late Carrie and staff left snacks in our room and refrigerator and a decent bottle of wine. So, ya. First impressions on arrival are right on spot.

Every morning breakfast is made and dietary restrictions are accommodated. Some evenings there is a change to meet other guests over a tasting of wine in the back garden. We were only able to attend one but met the vintner and had a few of his fantastic wines.

The place is relatively quiet with 5 or 6 rooms and some rooms exterior to the main house. The walls are a bit thin but that's just something to keep in mind to your own noise levels. You will meet everyone at some point staying behind those walls. :)

The owners and staff were wonderful, the room was serviced as needed, found some new wineries as suggested as well. We had a couple's massage in the room which was a nice way to start the day. The day we were leaving was very early as well to make it back to SFO, and a sack breakfast was provided when we were leaving. Again, the extra mile which makes this place great.

While we go back every 16 months or so to the area and don't spend every visit here, it is always a fantastic experience and I'm always ready to return.

Room Tip: For late sleepers, upstairs rooms might be better as you aren't as close to the dining room whic...

My husband and I spent three nights at 1801 First Luxury Inn in early August. This was our first experience at a B&B and it far surpassed all expectations!

We stayed in the garden room, tucked away out the back of the property. It was quiet, beautifully appointed and the bed was very comfortable.

Carrie, Blair and team were all lovely and helpful. Carrie helped plan our first day of wine tastings and when a tasting time suddenly changed after we had already embarked on our day she called ahead and left a message for us at our next stop to inform us of the itinerary change so our day continued without a glitch. Such thoughtfulness.

The wine and canapés in the evening was most enjoyable and it was a great way to get to know the owners and other guests. The breakfast was a big winner for us too - order the bacon! Delish!

I did a lot of research before deciding on this wonderful B & B. It was the perfect place to marry the love of my life and I knew it before we ever arrived. I talked with Carrie, Blair and Shirlee for several hours over the phone as they helped me plan the wedding of my dreams. They were so knowledgeable and helpful, from every wedding detail to the amazing wineries. It was just my husband and I, so I just wanted them to take care of things for us. They did just that !

We arrived to a personal tour of the property and glasses of wine. The Inn is beautifully decorated and has plenty of charm and warmth. We chose the Carriage House for our stay, it is breathtaking when you open the door and walk inside! Its a large detached cottage with a very comfortable California king-sized bed, large walk-in shower, nice Jacuzzi for two, also a double sided fireplace. I asked if it was "worth it" before I booked the room, I was not disappointed!

The gourmet breakfast every morning in the sunny little breakfast room was a delight ! The food was amazing, not to mention the homemade cookies that were available at ALL times. Shirlee made daily itinerary's after she helped plan out our wine tastings and dinner reservation. They really do know the best places to go. Needless to say, WE LOVE SHIRLEE !!

Our wedding was held on the back porch area where the wine hour is held every night. No details were missed, they found the photographer, officiant, florist and bakery for the cake. Laura even helped me fix my dress right before the ceremony. It was perfect! We couldn't be happier about how it all turned out.

When it was time to leave, We knew we would miss our fabulous room, delicious breakfasts, wine and cheese hour every night but what we miss the most is the personalized service that you wont get anywhere else. We will miss Carrie, Blair, Laura and Shirlee. They felt like old friends who were truly interested in making our time there memorable. We hope we can return soon. I would highly recommend this charming Inn !

We stayed at this inn for three days in August and had a lovely time! Suite #1 was well laid out, with ample space, fireplace, tub & shower. Breakfast menu posted each evening, and three options for dining times. All breakfast was delicious, local, fresh, and varied. Wine tasting each evening in the garden, well-attended, and a nice time to socialize. Off-street parking, two door entrance with key (very secure), and cookies available 24 hours a day ;) Should we be back in Napa again, we'd definitely choose to stay at 1801 again!
