The Innkeeper, Pat, was very nice and welcoming. Breakfast was amazing! There is one breakfast seating at 9am, so plan your other activities accordingly. We could hear some noise from others staying in the same house as us but I suppose that happens even in a regular hotel too. Lovely property and room!

The period style has been preserved with the addition of modern amenities in such a charming setting. We stayed in the Ambrose Bierce suite and were so pleased with the lovely rooms, the comfy bed, quality linens and extra touches like fresh flowers and water bottles. The fireplace heated the sitting room very quickly and added such a cozy touch on a very blustery day. We walked to some excellent restaurants and wished we could've stayed longer than 2 days. The breakfasts were very good, and we met some very nice people. I especially enjoyed the upstairs sitting area--so bright and comfortable. I would love to return when it's warmer and try out the porch swing and hot tub. I highly recommend this place!

Great Escape
Very good Inn with welcoming staff...good breakfast right in the heart of St Helena. Great location for touring both valleys and plenty of room to relax. Rooms are comfortable. Enjoy a stroll in town. Overall a decent value for the Money

The house we were in was quite a surprise, as it was an actual house with sitting areas, full kitchen, dining area and all the necessities. We really just needed the bedroom, but the extra room was very nice. That would be great to rent for a group of people. I’ve been to a lot of B & B’s and this one was very nice. My only disappointment is that the breakfasts were not up to the standard I am use to. They were adequate, but I’ve had some unbelievable breakfasts at other inns. We had a wonderful stay. The inn is very close to town and there are excellent restaurants and shops within walking distance. A very enjoyable experience.
