Based on so many good reviews, I had anticipated a better experience. I booked the 3 nights hoping for a romantic, special occasion type stay for my husband's Birthday. We love staying at B&B's rather than hotels, and had high hopes for our visit. If you are looking for a Warm/Fuzzy romantic Inn that offers special touches and acknowledgement of special occasions for it's guests, this is not that type of place.
The Inn was spotless, and the breakfast was fresh and delicious. The hot part of the meal is served family style, more casual than most B&B's.
Location is very good, but if you like to take a walk, I'd recommend driving to a safer, less busy road to walk on with better visibility on the driver's part.
No cell phone reception (AT&T) on property, and there wasn't a land line for us to use when we needed to make an important call, and Jeff the sole innkeeper was not on the property at the time, so that was a really stressful experience for us. Wish we had known ahead of time.
Napa is such a special, romantic area, we were hoping for an Inn experience that matched that, and unfortunately were disappointed.
