This is a welcoming, well appointed, agreeable place to stay right in the center of town..the farmers Friday market right at your door. We were there for a wedding and were most pleased by our brother's selection as we are a rather picky group. The beds were the very best! Made me almost miss the ceremony. Breakfast is served in...

Thanks to our hosts for a very welcoming and comfortable stay. We felt very much at home. It was great to eat breakfast at the table in our room (Stofle) with a view of the ocean and the visit of a hummingbird at the window. We also enjoyed afternoon tea and the opportunity to meet fellow travellers. Great home-baked cookies!

The location is wonderful, the accommodations were also great. We had a wonderful breakfast served in our room overlooking the beautiful ocean. The staff was very accommodating and went the extra mile for us.

My boyfriend and I have stayed at other B&Bs in Mendocino and I have to say that by far, this is the best B&B we've stayed at in Mendocino. It is a very lovely inn. It has a touch of old, sentimental decor but its very charming and cozy. The gardens in the front is well manicured. We stayed at... More

Good location, charming rooms, great and friendly service, fair pricing, and delicious breakfasts. We stayed two nights in the lovely Bessie Strauss Suite, which sits on the second floor and includes a bay window alcove area. The room has a very charming ambiance and is nicely furnished. It has a fireplace which comes pre-stocked with kindling wood in place ready... More

My wife Dianne and I have stayed at the Headland's Inn many times and can't wait to get back. If you want to stay in a great place that treats you like one of the family this B&B is for you. The owners, Mitch and Denise are very personable, and bring that "welcome-to-our-home" touch you won't find elsewhere. From the... More

My husband and I had a great weekend in Mendocino staying at this centrally located B&B - close to the headlands and great restaurants. Room on first floor was on the garden with a view of the ocean. Nice breakfast and home baked cookies with sherry in the afternoon.

My wife and I made the trek to Mendocino for the first time in April and stumbled onto the Headlands with a week night vacancy. We slept in Annies room and could not have been more pleased with the hospitality or value. The breakfast was the best I've ever had in a B & B.

Room was nicely done and very comfortable. Cosy and comfortable common area with snacks and beverages. Breakfasts were great. It was the perfect base for us to explore Mendocino and... More
