1801 First Luxury Inn
Ranked #3 of 22 Napa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2014

My husband and I stayed in one of the cottages for three nights, and we had the most personal and comfortable experience. The room was cozy and sweet, with a small refrigerator and a gas fireplace. We had a small, private outdoor space leading up to the front door. I think of all the cottages, this one offered the most privacy, as it didn't directly look out on the main patio.

The owners, Blair and Carrie, are an adorable couple that are clearly excited and passionate about owning and running a successful B&B. Blair hosted the wine hour each night and is great at facilitating conversation. The wine and snacks (nuts, cheese, charcuterie) were a perfect way to end a day of wine tasting. Breakfast was delicious, and the dining area was sunny and charming. I really felt comfortable and relaxed; a perfect feeling for the Napa Valley setting. We also appreciated their restaurant recommendations, such as Zuzu for tapas and Oenotri for Italian. Both were perfect.

This B&B was also clearly beloved by the community. Whenever we were asked where we were staying, folks would say, "Oh, that's a wonderful place" or "I've heard such good things." It just validated that we made the perfect decision for our Napa getaway.

To Cohsu47,

Thank you so much for the thoughtful review! Blair and I appreciate you noticing the attention to detail of our family inn. And we couldn't have done it without our impressive staff! We hope you enjoyed our breakfast and wine hours and had nice conversations with our other guests. And it's so nice to hear our name mentioned in such a positive manner throughout downtown Napa. We are so glad you had a relaxing and wonderful experience here. We hope you can join us again and have more special memories in our beautiful Napa Valley!

Take Care,
Kali, Felice, Carrie & Blair

My husband and I were there for our 5th year wedding Anniversary and the staff made it memorable!
Everyone that works at 1801 First really puts in their all to make you feel special. They go above and beyond to make you happy whether it's making sure they can contact wineries you want to visit, recommendations for dinner or day trips or simply making sure they can cater to a fussy breakfast order (someone that doesn't eat eggs).
We stayed in the beautiful Suite 2 which was downstairs and was away from the noise of the road as it does get busy. If you are a light sleeper and want to sleep in most mornings you may want to request and confirm an upstairs suite as it is an old building you get noise transfer from suites above as they are coming and going. We were Ok as we were up for the earlier breakfasts most mornings as we were off for day trips.
Wine hours in the afternoon with cheese was a wonderful way to relax and have a chat with other guests staying at the B&B. The owners and staff were key in making our stay a lovely one.

Hello KittyKat127,

We are incredibly flattered by your review, thank you! It's our pleasure to assist our guests with any plans they need and we're glad that we could help may your trip a memorable one. (And no need to worry as "no eggs" is pretty low on the picky eater totem pole!)

I am also glad to hear that we were able to pair you up with the right room. Although we are not a large property, where your room is located in our inn can make a big difference so we're happy to hear that you got the restful night sleep that you wanted.

Until next time,
Kali, Felice, Carrie & Blair

First time to Napa and it was amazing. We stayed in one of the cottages which was private and the perfect size for us. We were greeted by Blair, one of the owners and he joined us for a couple glasses of wine for a half hour or so. He gave us some great advice on restaurants and just good conversation. The service was impeccable. Overall, the food was great and the little things, like truffles waiting for us, wine tasting from a local small winery, and wine and cheese hour every night made it unforgettable. We will be staying here again!

1801 is a beautiful and charming B&B. The living room is gorgeous and very inviting. My husband and I spent time there enjoying the fire, the leather chairs, port, and delicious homemade cookies. We also enjoyed visiting with Felice, the hostess, and her husband, both very interesting people.
Our cottage had its own patio, fireplace, and Jacuzzi bath. We also spent time in the main garden which is also charming. Felice brought us wine and wonderful cheeses, bread, and olives for happy hour. Wonderful. Finally, the dining room was light and airy and very Victorian, with white linen table cloths, a gourmet breakfast, and perfect service.
We will definitely be going again.
Thank you, Felice, for making this a memorable stay.

This Bed and Breakfast experience was fantastic. The inn is special. All staff members are
so nice, always trying to help in everything. Their attention is so special. They were friendly,
supportive, close. They do a great job to make your stay enjoyable. Their housekeeping ser
vice is impeccable, their chef excellent, the happy hour and wine tasting fantastic. We met
very nice people, that is hard to meet in a big hotel. I highly recommend it, and definitely are
coming back. We want all our family to live this great experience.

Wow! Where do I begin? This was my husband's and my first getaway without the kids, in many years, and we're so glad we chose to stay at 1801 First. From the decadent homemade truffles in our room upon check-in to the carefully selected local wines and cheeses to the wonderfully prepared breakfasts, it was apparent that great care and pride goes into making their guests feel welcomed and comfortable. Our suite (#4) was well-appointed and inviting. The large fluffy pillows and comfortable bed made for a restful sleep. The staff: Kali, Carrie and Felice were very friendly and knowledgeable about nearby wineries and also recommended great eateries nearby. It was a vacation we won't soon forget and our stay at 1801 First made it that much more memorable!! --Jackie and Rich
