The Inn On First

True to its classification as a bed and breakfast, The Inn on First honeymoon experience is dual-focused between first-class room amenities and an unequaled breakfast menu that foodies can’t stop raving about. The commitment to providing a quiet and peaceful romantic oasis is absolute, with the inn skipping televisions in its rooms to allow couples to focus on nurturing a connection based on love.

The heart and soul of The Inn on First is its renowned breakfast, which is crafted daily as a labor of love by the inn’s co-founder, Jim Gunther, a graduate of the California Culinary Academy. More than 160 unique recipes have been created by Gunther, ranging from tasty staples like honey nut granola, apple pie pancakes, and cranberry-lemon scones to creative indulgences like bacon-filled steamed buns and corndog omelets. Breakfast can be enjoyed in the delightful dining room or out on the patio, where the gentle sounds of the garden’s waterfall trickling into the pond provide the perfect ambiance.

There are a number of rooms and suites available in the inn, but celebrating couples will definitely want either the Vintage Reserve King Honeymoon Suite or the Noble Vineyard King Honeymoon Suite. Both suites feature a California King-size bed, a gas fireplace and two-person soaking tub for romantic evenings, and a private entrance for utmost comfort. Be sure to also add on the Lover’s Package, which adds rose petals on your luxurious bed, a bottle of Mumm Napa sparkling wine, and a dozen house-made truffles.

The historic building dates back to the early 20th century, and the rich history is evident in beautiful design accents and cozy rooms that are ideal for rest and relaxation.
