About Our Inn

St. Helena Bed & Breakfast - The Ambrose Bierce House

Welcome to our Napa bed and breakfast!

We invite you to experience the romantic charm and “warm and enthusiastic hospitality” of our 1872 Victorian Bed and Breakfast Inn. Our Napa bed and breakfast is in a perfect location… right in the center of the finest wineries of Napa Valley.

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 for a St. Helena bed and breakfast and a great alternative to a St Helena Hotel, because we offer the amenities of both.

Of all the bed and breakfast’s in Napa, Ambrose Bierce House is one of the few to offer first class amenities like in room Jacuzzi tubs, romantic fireplaces, satellite television and a full breakfast.

Our goal at the Ambrose Bierce House is to offer you the finest combination of luxury, hospitality and history garnished with our famous mouth-watering full breakfasts and the premium Napa wines and snacks that we serve each evening.

Napa Valley Lodging - A Wine Country Bed & Breakfast

Tasting wines and touring some of the oldest and most prestigious wineries in the Napa Valley is just the beginning… dining… ballooning… bicycling… massage for two? We are happy to be your own personal concierge. Ambrose Bierce defined comfort as ” a state of mind produced by the contemplation of a neighbor’ uneasiness.” Yet the curmudgeon philosopher managed to live in comfortable serenity despite the equally pleasurable lifestyles of his fellow wine country residents.

Guests at this Napa Bed and Breakfast in California will experience these same comforts today. Each evening enjoy the company of others while we serve premium wines from wineries in California and snacks… review our complete collection of restaurant menus or just watch the world go by… cuddle up next to our giant Redwood tree on our covered balcony… or with classical music as your background enjoy the parlor in our Napa Valley Bed and Breakfast. Awaken to the aroma of the inn’s own blend of coffee… that is just a start as breakfast is an event every day. For you we serve a full gourmet breakfast complete with  our take on Eggs Benedict, Belgian Waffles, or baked French toast; fresh fruits; our home-baked breads and croissants; a selection of premium teas, coffee, and fresh juice. Our Napa Valley accommodations are truly just the beginning… there is so much to experience in your visit to the Napa Valley…

What Our Guests Are Saying

You made our first experience at a B&B a memory we will never forget…it would not have been as romantic nor made such vivid memories without your beautiful home, the picture perfect garden, the evenings spent drinking wine and laughing on your balcony!”
