Beazley House Bed & Breakfast Inn
Table Of Contents
“Now you have friends in Napa.” Is much more than just a “tagline” for a descriptor of the Beazley House, it’s a fact. The Beazley House has been hosting happy (& RETURNING) guests for 32 years. It is literally Napa’s first B&B inn and the ONLY inn still run by its original owners: Carol and Jim Beazley.
The Inn consists for a 111 year old mansion, surrounded by lawns and gardens and its Carriage House and has 11 guest rooms. If this were Europe, the Beazley House would be considered a “Boutique Hotel” not a traditional B&B. That’s because of its level of personal service and amenities as well as its private, ensuite bathrooms, two person spa whirlpool tubs and delicious, gourmet breakfast. But much better than a hotel, the Beazley House is quieter, offers personalized tour service and a setting of understated elegance. The inn’s gardens and location are unsurpassed in Napa. It has earned the reputation of being the most photographed inn in Napa.
The Beazley House has been voted Napa's Best B&B for 11 years in a row by the listeners of KVON/KVYN.
Our elegant yet comfortable guest rooms have private baths and garden views. Our romantic Carriage House offers true Napa style luxury with whirlpool tubs and fireplaces with complete privacy in hide-away rooms. We offer stay and play packages combining a glorious visit at Napa Valleys finest bed and breakfast with some of Napa's greatest excursions.
"What a wonderful, peaceful place. We enjoyed everything Beazley House has to offer! Thank you for restoring peace of mind to me." - Mary Kay, Fallon, NV
"Napa's first bed and breakfast, and its still the best...you'll sense the hospitality as you stroll the walk past verdant lawns and bright flowers..." - The Annual Directory of American Bed & Breakfasts
The Beazley House, a wonderful circa 1902 mansion, was founded in 1981 in historic old town Napa by Carol and Jim Beazley, Napa's first innkeepers. "Some of our friends thought we were nuts, but the only thing we were afraid of was not getting the chance to try," says Carol. "We sold everything we owned to make the down payment." And the rest is history. "The inn sits on half an acre of lawns and gardens, and is an easy walk to Napa's gourmet restaurants and wine tasting rooms," Jim said.
The Beazleys have always been quick to add the amenities which they found their guests desired. By 1989 all of the ten guest rooms had private baths. Six of the rooms have fireplaces and five have private, two-person spas. Carol and Jim continue to personally manage the inn.
In May 2001, the Beazleys purchased another circa 1900's mansion just two doors west of the Beazley House. The property has been turned into Napa's newest luxury inn named "The Daughter's Inn." In May of 2007, the Daughter's Inn was sold to Jim Gunther & Jamie Cherry of San Francisco, CA.
The Beazleys are involved in the Napa community. Jim has twice been President of the Napa Valley Conference and Visitors' Bureau and a director of the Napa Chamber of Commerce and has served on the City of Napa's Cultural Heritage Commission. Carol also served on this commission in the late 1980's.
Jim & Carol have been active in Napa's community of innkeeping helping organize the Historic Inns of Napa. They are founding members of the statewide organization the California Association of Bed and Breakfast Inns (CABBI) and charter members of the Professional Association of Innkeepers International.
For breakfast you'll find a delicious buffet of fresh-baked muffins or breads, with perhaps a crustless quiche or some other hot gourmet treat. There will always be a variety of fresh fruits with yogurt, granola and sweet orange juice and a selection of teas and steaming coffee, ground fresh with each pot. It's over breakfast that guests are guided to the best the Wine Country has to offer, including special, hidden places known only to the innkeepers.
