The place is beauiful and our room was big, nice and confortable. There was an eletric fireplace and a bottle of wine for me and my friend. We've arrived at midnight and found our key in an envelope. But next morning, the staff was not kind, contradicting the kindness of the day before. The gourmet breakfast is very good and... More

This property is extremely well maintained, beautiful, and peaceful! It was quiet and just what we needed to get away from it all. The hot tub had excellent views of the ocean and was even fenced so our dog dog could be with us. There are strategically placed dog clean-up bags and bins that are not obtrusive, but present. So...

We actually found this hotel using an app for the first time called Hotel Tonight to find a last minute deal on the California coast around Mendocino. Boy, was this a nice surprise! Both the app (was able to use PayPal) and the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. We love these older converted places with nice appointments...the bed & linens were... More

My husband and I were married at the inn on 6/27. Having our wedding here was a no brainer after we visited for the first time in early 2014. The property is beautiful, the cottages are quaint and perfect, and the staff is simply amazing!!!! Roxanne, the wedding coordinator, stayed in constant contact with us throughout the whole planning of... More

This was a wonderful experience! The cabins are great as is the view. The food is amazing!! We had such a nice time there. What friendly people and quite a nice view of the ocean. They have many nice amenities that were unexpected. We will be back. Dog friendly as well!

I planned our Northern California vacation for months and used Tripadvisor for all the hotels we booked. What I expected from the reviews of this hotel and what we got are remarkably different. Still kicking myself. This one stay was our one "splurge" hotel. As soon as we pulled in my heart sank. It is not neat and tidy, it... More

My husband and I found the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek online a few months ago and it appeared to have everything we were looking for in a peaceful and relaxing vacation for our family--including two kids and our two Siberian Husky year-old puppies. After just spending a very relaxing week in a little cottage with an ocean view to the... More

Needed a get away where there was no rushing around and just time to unwind to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Cypress Cottage and it was absolutely wonderful. Very clean with hardwood floors, windows everywhere, a small kitchenette, which we used on a daily basis, a nice flat screen t.v. and a free standing fireplace which... More

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
