We wanted to spend some time on the north coast and Mendocino was a great stopover. We picked Headlands Inn based on reviews and boy, they were spot on. Arrived a little earlier than expected, but we were greeted cordially with friendly suggestions and local information. We wandered the town and came back in time for tea and cookies in... More

It's hard to imagine a better base than the Headlands Inn for enjoying the unique charms of Mendocino. It's a lovely old building, right in the heart of town, run by a delightful couple. Our room was spacious and cosy, the breakfasts (brought to your room) were a great start to each day, and the communal lounge and garden were... More

Nice, clean inn-well appointed room and squeaky clean bathroom. Mitch was waiting and opened the front door as we walked up to the front door. We stayed in Annies room downstairs- nice side yard view. Denise had several suggestions for dinner and we decided to dine at the Mendocino Café. We left early the next morning before breakfast (6 a.m.)... More

Traveling the coast highway from Victoria to San Diego. Arrived in Mendocino without reservations and happened to stop in front of Headlands Inn. Excellent beds and bedding. Very nice rooms. Delightful Hostess, and unique breakfast. Best night's sleep we had the whole trip.

This was my second stay at the Headlands Inn over the Christmas holidays and what a delight. The Inn was tastefully and festively decorated and Mendocino is a lovely, albeit quiet, place to spend the holidays. The Inn itself is homey, in an old Victorian, so don't expect sharp modernist lines, but rather plushness and softness. What I truly like... More

We stayed one night in Mendocino while working our way down the coast. We will be back and will likely chose this B & B again. Everything about it was done in very professional and friendly way. We stayed in the detached cottage room (Casper Cottage) which was very spacious with it's own fireplace (real wood) and a huge bathroom... More

We were blown away the beauty of this B&B and its ideal location. Not only are you treated to spectacular ocean views, but the Inn is perfectly located within walking distance of everything on Mendocino--the shops, restaurants and dramatic cliffside hiking areas. The hospitality is, if anything, even more impressive. Denise, Mitch and their staff provide a unique experience that... More

We have stayed at the Headlands Inn many times. Mendocino and the Headlands Inn keep calling us back. We have had rooms in the Inn, have stayed in the Cottage, and now we are experiencing the peace and quiet of the Hideaway! You can hear the waves crashing on the rocks. The king bed is very comfortable, we slept very... More

We were lucky to snag a room over the Thanksgiving weekend. We we're also celebrating our 25th anniversary and treated ourselves to 3 nights in this wonderful B&B.. We stayed in Annie's Room which was perfect for us. The hosts, Denise and Mitch, were very welcoming and treated us like we were friends. Our room had a bottle of wine... More
