The lodging facilities consist of five units, four are in the main house and one in a detached cottage. A spa and the swimming pool are available for use by all guests. A full breakfast, comprised of local fresh foods, is served in the morning in a central dining area. We are solar powered, with 10,000 watts of renewalble energy.

Bear Flag Inn

3.6 on December 01, 2014

We stayed in the dog friendly cottage. We have Labs and so do the owners! We enjoyed our visit and playtime with them!

Historical Homestead

4.0 on November 19, 2014

Marge & Dennis are fantastic people who went out of their way to make us feel at home. Not only was the Inn a former homestead of my family heritage, they openly shared information they had about the history. The Inn was presentably clean and comfortable. It is quiet as it sets back from the main road. The grounds were a bit untidy making it look a bit run down, but with a change of season I can well imagine its appearance during Spring and Summer months. There was a pool and patio area. Inside was a large common room where guests are given snacks and a nice glass of wine in the afternoon. Breakfast was fantastic served piping hot and accompanied with local fresh fruits and bread. The room price was more than I typically spend, but seemed to be the average for the Napa Valley area... Throwing in a meal and lovely people, I would recommend staying here

Welcoming B&B Nestled in the Vineyards

3.8 on October 27, 2014

Very welcoming hosts and this B&B was perfectly nestled in the middle of vineyards. I would definitely recommend this to friends, and plan to visit again. The hosts were informative and friendly. I loved my stay!

Cozy place

3.6 on October 08, 2014

I really enjoyed staying at the Bear Flag Inn. While the room was clean and cozy there was a funny smell that I just couldn't get over. It smelled a little like kitty litter. Again, the room was clean and well maintained, perhaps I just have a sensitive sniffer! The pool was kind of lame, too. I didn't go in but it wasn't that inviting. The hosts were wonderful; very nice and hospitable. It is also in a decent location. It's not right in town but was on the main highway which made it easy to get to, and parking was a breeze.

A warm welcome

Dennis and Margery were welcoming hosts, the room was spacious and the bed comfortable. We enjoyed using the pool after a hot day wine tasting and the breakfasts set us up for the rest of the day. David and Janet

David and Roberta love this B&B. Love Marge and Dennis ~ so spot on appropriate. We enjoy talking with them at breakfast and during afternoon social hour. Great breakfasts. Clean home. Love daughter Caroline. Thanks for all the kindnesses. If we return to Napa we will stay here again. D & R Schwartz

We very much enjoyed the Bear Flag Inn. The accommodations were comfortable, the hosts were friendly and gracious and the breakfast was wonderful. This establishment was pet friendly and met our needs.

Great breakfast and host

Coming home to longtime friends

4.6 on August 20, 2014

This was our second stay at the Bear Flag Inn. Dennis' and Marge's (the innkeepers') hospitality and warmth is absolutely unmatched; it feels like coming to visit with longtime friends. For the duration of your stay, they make you feel like family! And their fresh-cooked hot breakfast in the conservatory is a dream... can't wait to return!

Hosts make a B&B experience

5 on August 13, 2014

I give the Bear Flag Inn a high rating because I so much enjoyed sharing the home of our hosts. They are so gracious. We stayed in the cottage with our doggie and it is very comfortable. The highlight of each morning is breakfast in the solarium with the other guests. Marge and Dennis prepare a great meal every morning. Lazy summer afternoons enjoying wine from a vineyard on the grounds and conversation with people from around the world. It is what I expect in a B&B!
