This Month's Testimonial:  "A 'Home' in Napa"

Featuring: 1801 First Inn in Napa, CA

"1801 First is a wonderful, intimate, luxury inn in the heart of the Napa Valley. My husband & I spent 4 nights there last month. We stayed in the Bella Fresia Suite which is located in the turret. It was comfortable, quiet & a fabulous room. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious & prepared each day by an in-house chef! The staff is most helpful & has lots of suggestions. The inn is impeccably decorated & its location is in walking distance to downtown Napa."
