Property description

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 Victorian Bed and Breakfast Inn nestled 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 champagne breakfast.

This listing is for the option of renting the entire house. Breakfast is not included when renting the entire house, but can be added for an additional fee. Please visit our website for other options.

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 champagne breakfasts and the premium Napa wines and cheeses that we serve each evening.
