We stayed at the Water Tower Cottage and it was unbelievable! We fell in love both with the area and with the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. The owners are amazing and made our stay feel special from the moment we arrived. The private hot tub in the water tower I admit was not quite what I was expecting (a traditional... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for a few days for our "mini-moon"--we stayed in the Garden Cottage. I think it was a little more expensive than some of the other room options, but it was a standalone cottage (some of them are smaller units which share walls with each other) and it was also the most secluded. We... More

Our stay at Schoolhouse Creek was nothing less than spectacular. After I saw the picture of the Shangri La cottage online I hoped everything would be as advertised and it was. There were a couple of surprises in that we didn't realize there was no cell service, wi fi and the dish was out. Our initial aggravation was quickly dispelled... More

We took a spur of the moment trip north from the city and found this gem. There's something to be said of the value of genuine and personalized service -- the welcomed us with a handwritten note and a bottle of wine! Some other things we loved were the adorable cottages, amazing view of the ocean and dog friendly environment!... More

We recently visited the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek and I can't say enough how fantastic our experience was! To start - every single member of the staff was warm and accommodating. The cottages were lovely too – each was unique, clean, charming and warm. And free wifi is always appreciated! We stayed in the Garden Cottage – a little more... More

I took my girlfriend and our for a surprise trip trip to Mendocino County. We stayed 2 nights at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. The overall look is very representative of the area: cottages, small office, a cute restaurant (breakfast only), lots of green spaces, hot tub, sauna, an a yurt transformed in a venue for spa treatments. All rooms... More

We rented the Albion View home and it was dog friendly which was important for us. A bottle of wine greeted us, as well as dog bowls, a frisbee and a welcome note. The home has a newer clean hot tub with a distant ocean view with and enclosure so your dog can hang out there while you take a... More

We stayed for two nights at this quaint inn. It is a charming property - set into a hillside with distance views of the Pacific Ocean close a couple minutes drive from the village of Mendocino. This is how an inn should be. Friendly and helpful staff, great amenities (fluffy towels, free wifi, comfortable sheets, bathrobes, a welcome bottle of... More

We recently decided to make a trip up to the Mendocino area of California to wind down from a three day party, our sons wedding and to also celebrate my wife's birthday. I found this place on line and from the pictures it looked like a very well kept bungalow along the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean. I just knew... More

This place is wonderful! Especially if you have a dog. We even had a card in our room waiting for us. The beds are really comfortable too. We ate a delightful breakfast at the Inn while we were there. Five stars and 5 paws!
