Welcome to our Napa Valley bed and breakfast! We invite you to experience the romantic charm and "warm and enthusiastic hospitality" of our 1872 Victorian bed and breakfast inn. Inn St Helena is in a perfect location... right in the center of the finest wineries of Napa Valley in downtown St. Helena. You can walk to fine and casual dining, historic Beringer Vineyards... and unique shopping in beautiful and quaint downtown St. Helena. We are the perfect choice if you are trying to decide between a St. Helena bed and breakfast and a St Helena Hotel because we offer the amenities of both. Of all the bed and breakfast’s in Napa, Inn St Helena is one of the few to offer first class amenities like in room Jacuzzi tubs, romantic fireplaces, satellite television and a full champagne breakfast. Not all Napa Valley accommodations are created equal. Our goal at the Inn St Helena is to offer you the finest combination of luxury, hospitality and history garnished with our famous mouth-watering full champagne breakfasts and the premium Napa wines and cheeses that we serve each evening.

Very much enjoyed our stay here. The house has been updated and tastefully decorated. (i.e. every surface isn't covered in lace and flowers like many other B&Bs.) The bed was comfortable and despite the heat outside the air was very nicely air-conditioned. Everything was very clean and well maintained. WiFi signal was strong and 20Mb internet let us stream our shows at night.

My boyfriend and I celebrated our birthdays in Ambrose Bierce House. We stayed one night only and met Christian, the innkeeper, but by the end of our stay it felt like we came to visit our best friend. The B&B itself is charming, with beautifully decorated rooms, super comfortable beds and an absolutely delicious breakfast, situated in the heart of St. Helena. The location of the B&B is perfect; you can walk to some of the wineries and a number of restaurants. However, what really sets it apart from other B&Bs is Christian. I have never seen a person (including my friends of 20 years and family) that went the extra mile to accommodate us. It started with a pre-visit inquiry of what wineries and restaurants we should visit in the area. I was at a loss since there are so many great establishments in Napa and St. Helena area. Christian asked for our preferences and gave us a very good and focused list of places to go. We were off to a good start already! Then we had a chance to chat with him a bit in the B&B and also enjoyed an amazing waffle breakfast. A week after we came back, Christian followed up with an email asking how our stay was. I was astonished to see that he remembered every little detail of our trip, including our birthday celebrations, our itinerary before and after Napa stay, etc. Christian paid attention to everything! I loved his waffle breakfast so much that I asked for the recipe. Not only did he email me the recipe, he also mailed me a bag of waffle/pancake mix! I highly recommend staying at Ambrose Bierce house. You will make a friend for life in Christian and enjoy a beautiful B&B in magical St. Helena.

A friend who had stayed here a couple of times during his vacation highly recommended that we stay at the Ambrose Bierce B&B. We stayed five nights and were extremely satisfied! The location was perfect as we were able to walk to a different restaurant for dinner every night. The room was nice and clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Christhian was the host during our stay, and he was amazing! We awoke every morning to a delicious home-cooked breakfast spread with fresh fruit in the dining room, and came back in the afternoons from our daily ventures to find wine and hors d’oeuvres awaiting us upstairs in the lounge. Christhian was fun and we enjoyed visiting with him. He made some great suggestions on wineries and restaurants, provided maps to get us where we wanted to go, and he made our stay with Ambrose Bierce very enjoyable! We’re planning to go there again to celebrate our 30th anniversary after the first of the year! Can’t wait to go back!

My sisters and I stayed at this quaint spot for a girls weekend reunion. We stayed in the new loft apartment and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The staff were both friendly and accommodating and the location was perfect! They were nice enough to let us take our complimentary breakfast up to our room so we could enjoy an intimate breakfast on the balcony. We felt at home and honestly couldn't have asked for a better wine tasting get-away! We will definitely be back!!

From when we first spoke to Tamara to confirm our check-in, we knew we had picked a great spot for our stay in Napa! The Inn was adorable, clean and quaint. We haven't stopped talking about how comfortable our beds were. We say "beds" because our AMAZING assistant inn-keeper, Christian, invited us to stay in a large king size suite on our second night because this room had no reservation. We had previously booked a small room which was comfortable but tight quarters. Little did he know that we had gotten engaged that day and this was the perfect addition to an unforgettable day. Christian went above and beyond to treat us not like guests, but like family. The gourmet breakfast was piping hot and delicious every morning. Each evening we were greeted with wine and appetizers. I accidentally left behind a piece of jewelry. Christian promptly contacted us about it and immediately mailed it . All in all this was a perfect piece of an unforgettable trip. We aren't sure when we will be able to return but we know when we do, we will be at Ambrose again!

Stayed nights of 8/14 & 8/15 for a getaway weekend (and proposal) for my girlfriend. Location is right on Main St. close to lots of shops and food. Cristhian was a great host and cook I'll be back.

My boyfriend and I stayed one night at this beautiful B&B. The location is great - brief waking distance to the shops and restaurants of downtown St. Helena. The house is cozy and nicely decorated. The innkeeper Cristhian gave us a warm and enthusiastic welcome and took very good care of us! We were the only ones booked at the inn for the night, so the amazing Cristhian gave us a free upgrade to the Ambrose Bierce suite. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was nice and big, with a jacuzzi tub. They provided robes and extra towels so we could enjoy the outdoor hot tub, too! Cristhian made hors d'oeuvres and even though we weren't able to make it to cocktail hour, he left food and carafes of wine for us to enjoy later in the evening. In the morning, the other amazing innkeeper, Tamara, made oatmeal creme brulee - yum!! Overall, it was an amazing experience! We highly recommend Ambrose Bierce House and we'd love to go back again soon!

We recently stayed at this well kept and charming bed and breakfast with two other couples. Innkeeper Meldalina was a warm, delightful hostess who whipped up delicious dishes for breakfast as well as special treats that would tempt any palate! Her personal touches and attention to detail ensured that everything was "just right." Our group especially liked the quaint common area that provided a relaxed atmosphere to gather throughout our stay. We will definitely return!
