This is the worst place I have ever set foot in! Please do not let the pictures fool you. The place smelled of cats and is not clean. The kitchen where we were to have our breakfast was extremely dirty. I would not wish my worse enemy to stay in this place. The lovely community of Elk in the Mendocino... More

My husband and I had a gorgeous weekend at this beautiful, historic B&B -- the hosts had put fresh blossoms in our room from the giant Rhodendron tree in their front garden, setting the tone for romance. The first time I'd seen the view from our bedroom was when it was featured on the cover of Sunset magazine about 10... More

Let start off by saying that the couple that run the b&b are great people. But they don' t know how to run a b&b . We had to ask for towels both days we were their. WE had to rewash the coffee cups before we could use they. The whole b&b needs a deep cleaning & paint job, But... More

This house is falling into the water, literally. The room was dirty (old, stale and possible mold), floor was stained and the windows wouldn't close. That being said the view from the room was unrivaled! The gal managing was friendly and kind. When this place is renovated We will try it again!

We were driving down the coast on our way to California and had enough for one day. Saw another gorgeous ocean view and thought it would be nice to be able to stay somewhere we could watch the sun go down on this fabulous scene when lo and behold - we rounded a corner to find the Sandpiper Inn. They... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at the Sandpiper House B&B just this week. The hosts Craig and Debbie were very friendly, making us feel like we had stop off to visit a friend. From the excellent red on the bluff overlooking the ocean and and a great brie to go with the crackers..who could ask for... More

We were impressed with the charming Victorian atmosphere of this place. The backyard has a beautiful view of St. Anthony's Point. Very relaxing. The breakfast on both days was amazing and mouth watering.. We will return to Sandpiper as soon as we can..

Me and my wife stayed here during our 1year anniversary, and it was the perfect way to celebrate! Tracey was so nice and even greeted us with a little wine/snack platter when we arrived. She also took it upon herself to make dinner reservations for us for a really nice and scenic restaurant. As great as this place was, it's... More

My husband Frank and I (Margie) stayed here for a special 3 day birthday celebration for Frank. If I had pages to fill I could not say all I would want to say. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left (with tears in our eyes) it was absolutely perfect. Our room (Winston) was so adorable and Clean!!!... More

My boyfriend and I visited this lovely B&B to celebrate my 30th and escape from the grind. Note: we used a Groupon, so it was VERY affordable. The views were what made us choose this place, and you don't realize how breathtaking it is until you see if for yourself. The reason we will come back is not only the... More
