My husband and I decided to return to Mendocino after a dozen or so years and decided to stay at The Headlands Inn, where we stayed the first time. It didn't disappoint! Mitch and Denise are still the innkeepers and consummate hosts. the rooms are filled with antiques and the feather beds are to die for! We stayed in Annie's... More

In the heart of this beautiful, quiet seacoast town - everywhere readily walkable - good to just leave the car outside the inn for a few days. We had the Wilson room with its own shady balcony, lots of space and supremely comfortable bed. The innkeeper helped with the bags up the fairly steep stairs much to our relief. The... More

My friends and I had two rooms and they were both very clean and well decorated with antiques. The property is very nice with a welcoming community room (complete with Port wine and cookies) and the service was very good. The breakfast was to die for....an omelette pastry, freshly squeezed OJ, an oat and fruit bowl, and another delicious pastry.... More

One of the best things about Mendocino is you can walk everywhere. It's a touristy town, so there are lots of little shops. This Inn is lovely, and the people who run it are very helpful. We were able to walk to a nice restaurant, and walk to the coast to enjoy the view. This B&B is unique in that... More

On day 15 of a 3 week tour through Canada and USA and the Headlands Inn surpassed all expectations. The inn provided beautiful rooms and the most outstanding breakfast delivered to your door in the morning. I cannot recommend this B&B enough should you visit the charming Mendocino

My wife and I stay at the Headlands Inn any time we drive through Mendocino. The owners - Mitch and Denise - and staff - Jeffrey and Kelly - could not be friendlier and more accommodating. The breakfasts are outstanding, the atmosphere is terrific, and the two best restaurants in Mendocino are within a block. The Headlands Inn is an... More

We stayed at the Headlands Inn for two nights over the July 4th weekend. We loved the old fashioned charm of the Inn, the friendly innkeeper and staff. Location is central in the small village and just yards from everywhere. We had the J Wilson room, this was large with a small terrace, but the furniture was a bit creaky... More

We had 3 rooms at the inn all were quaint, clean and comfortable. The breakfasts we had were absolutely amazing. The inn is located right downtown, the entire village is walkable. The beaches and the view from the headlands park nearby were out of this world. Nice common room to enjoy afternoon tea with family and fellow guests. Stay here,... More

We and our friends really enjoyed our stay at the Headlands Inn. We rented the upstairs Barry Room (a nice view of the ocean and the smell of seabreeze through the windows) and the 2nd floor Wilson Room (no ocean view, but a harder bed, a nice porch for us to enjoy afternoon wine and cheese, and a woodburning stove...

Outstanding B&B. Wonderful location to walk the town, two of the friendliest, most hospitable innkeepers we've ever encountered. Warm and friendly with wonderful breakfasts and the cleanest rooms you'll find anywhere. Definitely will come back.
