Inn St Helena

1515 Main Street , Saint Helena, CA 94574 USA (Show map)


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.

lovely stay

5 on April 03, 2017

loved this b&b. for the price, was surprised at how nice it was. we stayed in the mollie day room (note they ripped out the old carpet seen in some pictures and now very nice wood floors are there). very clean, comfy bed, and huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub. cute little patio with private entrance. as a ground floor room you obviously will hear noise from above as it's an older house, but surprisingly wasn't that bad (maybe b/c the people above went to bed at a reasonable time and didn't wake up crazy early). breakfast was yummy. didn't get to go to happy hour so can't comment on that. plenty of parking. will definitely be back!

Lovely Inn

Our stay was perfect. Madeline was the perfect host, and cooked up wonderful breakfasts. The room was very clean and comfortable, with wonderful amenities, like a white noise sound machine, plush robes, a private courtyard and huge whirlpool bath. The location is very central to wineries, dining and shopping in the Napa valley as well, so you are close to whatever you want to do.

Memorable Stay

Very clean and quiet B&B. We enjoyed being within walking distance to downtown St. Helena. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

Stay in the cottage!!

A group of us stayed in the cottage and could not have been happier. We were able to fix our own meals (when we didn't enjoy the great restaurants in St Helena). We even grilled one night and enjoyed the patio and outdoor fireplace. The house was private, clean and comfortable. Innkeeper Madeline made us feel welcome and well taken care of. We'd recommend this Inn to everyone!

the friendliest place to stay

The place was immaculately clean and newly renovated, mixing antique pieces with all of the modern conveniences, like large flat screen, etc. The beautiful community dining room was conducive to chatting with fellow guests, and making friends. The manager, Madeline Kidd, took special care of our food requests, and made us feel like as if we were visiting a friend, rather than staying at a hotel.

With Madeline Kidd as innkeeper you are in the best hands

My husband and I had a great time staying at Inn st. Helena. Great rooms and you can feel that Madeline love her Work and her concern about the customer.

When can I return?!!

5 on October 17, 2016

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel extremely welcome by Vick & Madeline, the Innkeepers. It was a prefect location to explore plenty of wineries and in walking distance to shops & restaurants. Madeline was adorable, with her cute little southern accent & welcoming arms, I felt I was at home with family. Her breakfasts are amazing..without a doubt the best! The cheese & wine cocktail parties in the afternoon was a little cherry on top of our busy day….& great way to meet the other guests. We loved our loft room with the separate access, parking was a breeze. Overall, our first visit to Napa Valley will be very memorable due to this quaint little B & B, Inn St Helena. We can’t wait to return!

You are a short drive away from everywhere. After a couple of "tastings" every day, the white picket fence said "kick off your shoes you are home again". Take a snooze and head out for dinner with plenty of choices in town and nearby Yountville. Very reasonable for the area.

Carpet Issue

2.8 on August 28, 2016

We arrived later than the posted wine/cheese hour and found a key and front door code instructions taped to the front door. We did not see anyone until the next morning when we met the manager who was preparing breakfast. The room was adequate but small, the bed comfortable. The main issue was the carpet, in public spaces, hallways, and our room, which was very very soiled (beige carpet which showed all kinds of spots and wear, tear, and dirt). I don't think I've ever seen anything that bad in any kind of accommodation. The manager fixed a nice breakfast and chatted with guests.

Excellent stay.

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.
