Wanted something special for our 44th anniversary after a day of winetasting in the Anderson Valley. We'd made dinner reservations in Mendocino and rather than face a drive of 2 hours or more in the dark and through narrow, mountainous roads back to our Windsor resort, I booked a room at the Headlands Inn. The rave reviews are right on... More

Just returned home from a lovely 2 day stay at our favorite bed and breakfast. We have been coming here the past 10 years to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful room with a view of the ocean. We have stayed in every room except one. Hoping next year we will be able to stay in the last room.... More

The cottage is small but really nice. The canopy bed is romantic. Bathroom is quite spacious. All of it was kept up really well and so clean. We appreciated the ready-to-go fires in the fireplace - perfect for chilly, foggy mornings. And the breakfasts were SO AMAZING. Can't rave enough about the breakfast. Delivered at 9:00am with a smile and... More

Value, Quality, Location, Comfortable.... The Headlands is your retreat in Mendocino, walking distance to all, wonderful rooms, some with fireplaces, decks, all very well decorated. The breakfast is custom made each morning and delivered directly to your room all you have to do is pick the time. A wonderful stay highly recommend.

We are back in Mendocino for our anniversary, and we would only stay at The Headlands Inn. We love all the rooms here, but the Stoffle room is our favorite. It has a great view of the gardens and the ocean. Despite being downstairs by the front door, this room is very quiet. The owners and staff are delightful and... More

Mendocino was just a one-night stop on a little loop we were doing of this area of Nor Cal and staying at Headlands was quite the treat! Denise and Mitch were wonderful hosts and as soon as we arrived we were given the low down on everything in town including where to eat and shop. The location is terrific but... More

Our visit in July the exceeded our expectations. Rooms beautifully decorated, yard and flowers well groomed, host and hostess always available with excellent recommendations, but the highlight was breakfast. Not only to quality but the presentation, color, taste, more than expected. You can't go wrong

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
