“A COZY ATTRACTIVE B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014

My husband and I were celebrating our 30th anniversary and wanted to visit Napa ( we are from Illinois ) We stayed at 1801 First and were very pleased. The accommodations were so quaint and cozy. Felice greeted us and made us feel at home and offered all kinds of services ( from suggesting places to eat, wineries to visit, tours, offered to make reservations) The house and the grounds were impeccable and very well decorated. We stayed in the cottage which was so romantic and private. Every night they offer wine and cheese ion the patio and it is a gathering time to meet the other guests . Very nice!!! The owner even joins you and helps to make your stay comfortable. I would highly recommend 1801 First and would definitely return. By the way the breakfasts are remarkable!!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at 1801. Great hospitality from the owners, Carrie and Blair. And Kali helped us get in-room massages organized and a coveted dinner reservation at Bouchon. She was extremely nice and couldn't do enough to make our visit the best ever. We felt right at home. The property is 100 years old and well maintained. The rooms were spacious and clean. The location is close to the main street in Napa, so you can walk to a lot of good restaurants for dinner. Their breakfast is the best breakfast I have ever been offered at a B&B and honestly, better than most restaurant breakfasts. We loved the wine and cheese hour and a chance to meet some of the other guests. A glass of port and a cookie at night before going to bed, was a nice finish.

Hi 831Kathleen_S,

Wow, thank you so much for your review! We all work hard to make sure our guests feel completely spoiled so I love hearing that we succeeded. I'll certainly be passing your compliments on to our chef as well.

All the best to you both until next time,

First time in a B&B, having never been to Napa, my wife and I chose 1801 First based on good online reviews. We could not have had a better experience. After a rather hectic nearly 3 hour drive from San Francisco, we arrived to 1801 nearly an hour after their 5:30-6:30pm wine/cheese tasting which they do EVERY evening. However, Blair (owner) was still there and gladly poured us a well needed glass of wine and offered us food as well. We were then given a quick tour...grounds are beautiful! We were delighted to discover the chef had made several chocolate truffles which were waiting for us in our room. Our room was beautiful and with all amenities needed. This included water, sodas, a fireplace and even heavy bathrobes. The service was awesome. The breakfast was to die for! There was always coffee and fresh baked cookies in the commons area. The owner even offered use of his bottle of port to enjoy after dinner. My wife and I had our own agenda, but the staff was extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations, directions etc. They even made reservations for some as well as provided custom maps. At 1801 you are a very short walk to everything in downtown Napa and good restaurants. Location provided easy access to both 29 and Silverado Trail for access to all the wineries. Overall, an awesome experience! We will be back!

Troy E,

Thank you for this wonderful review about our Inn! And thank you so much for choosing us as your first B&B experience! We love to make our guests feel warm and welcomed and my husband loves his wine hours. One of the highlights of our job is conversing with our guests and getting to know them on a personal level and showcasing what the Napa Valley has to offer.

We are so pleased that you loved your suite and all the amenities that come with it. And those truffles are amazing! I have actually had guests ask me if the chef can ship them to their house:) The breakfasts are yummy and our chefs love the compliments.

Troy, thanks again and we are already looking forward to seeing you both at our 1801!

The best to you and your family,
Kali, Felice, Carrie & Blair

Positives: Near downtown Napa, luxurious spacious rooms, hospitality 5 star, nice breakfast and happy hour.

Negatives: Parking is a little funky, at intersection of two high traffic streets so you may get some street noise.

Hi Rocky W,

Thank you for your comments to our future guests. We try to make it clear to our guests that, while we are proud of our great downtown location, we do have one room that is not appropriate for light sleepers. However, I am so glad to see that it was not a problem for you!

It was such a pleasure to have you and your family stay with us and we hope to take care of you all again sometime soon.

Best,

My wife and I had the pleasure of visiting The 1801 for our 20th wedding anniversary. In all honesty, 1801 was our first B&B as they just haven't been "our thing". If 1801 is the standard for B&B's, they are now. From the beauty of the grounds to the quality of the service, our stay at 1801 First Luxury Inn was absolutely phenomenal.

We visit the Napa area anywhere from 2-5 times a year. We typically stay at the same places but decided to try a downtown Napa experience this time. 1801 First was great for this experience! The location was perfect for walking and enjoying the town. We were close enough to Hwy 29 and the Silverado trail that we could easily get to the wineries we love. The rooms were very nice and had fireplaces in each of them. It was a good balance of tradition, class, and upgraded amenities. Plus, it was very clean - inside and out. The food...was GREAT! Poached eggs over polenta with pesto? AMAZING! The team was very accommodating, kind, and helpful. It's a great place for first timers, frequent Napa visitors and folks celebrating anything. Truly a wonderful experience!

Jen C,

Thank you for posting your thoughts about our 1801! Since you come to Napa very frequently, we appreciate that you chose our Inn for your vacation destination. I am so glad you enjoyed our wonderful amenities such as our romantic fireplaces, and our spacious and clean suites. And I have to agree with you about the food! It's very hard for me to stay away from the substantial, gourmet breakfasts. Especially, when we get rave reviews from our guests! The poached eggs with pesto over polenta is certainly a fan favorite. If we have the pleasure to have you back at our Inn, please try the chefs' migas and croque madame. Yum!

Being in a prime location from downtown is one of the many highlights of our B&B. And we are so happy you were able to experience it!

Thank you again Jen for your review and we hope the four of you thoroughly enjoyed your stay with us :)

All the best,
Kali, Felice, Carrie & Blair

My wife and I haven't been to Napa in several years and debated whether to stay downtown Napa or up further in the valley for our honeymoon last week. We made the right choice staying at the 1801. The location is optimum: close enough to walk downtown for shopping and great food options (which have improved tremendously downtown) or for access to the vineyards which are a short drive north, yet far enough away to feel like you are north of the city. More importantly, the staff and owners are so welcoming and helpful for suggestions on wineries and eateries. The staff and owners were always there to welcome us in the morning with an excellent breakfast that rivals or exceeds the local places. We stayed in the Garden Room which was private and inviting. The grounds are meticulously groomed and the outdoor garden area is excellent place for a few glasses of wine and a book. Anyone looking to experience the luxurious B&B option with the privacy of a hotel should definitely check this place out.

Room Tip: Back Garden Room is most private option.

Creighton G,

Thank you for this thoughtful review! The staff, Blair and I enjoyed having you stay with us. Talking about eateries and wineries is always great topics of conversation! Telling me how happy you were here, and the enthusiasm on both of your faces was such a wonderful feeling for me. I love how you complimented us on our decor such as the chairs in the parlor room and and our contemporary pillows. You appreciated our attention to style and detail and for that, I truly thank you!

I hope the couples' massages made for a restful and relaxing stay. And the gourmet dishes at breakfast and wine hour added the perfect touch to your time with us.

April and Creighton, thank you for sharing your honeymoon with 1801 First! We hope you can come and visit us again on your many romantic anniversaries together :)

All the best,
Kali, Felice, Carrie & Blair
