The best breakfast we've ever had in a B&B served beautifully in our room. The hosts were pleasant charming and very helpful. The other guests were also friendly. The headlands were beautiful and we found a number of other walks with the help of the innkeepers.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Headlands Inn, and were were thrilled to find a place in Mendocino that we know we will want to come back to. The Inn is amazingly clean, charming and well taken care of. We did not meet the owners, but the staff were super friendly. The location is perfect as it is... More

We had a great time at Headlands! We stayed in the light blue and white room at the front of the house on the third floor. We were happy with the bed, furniture, ability to have breakfast in our room, great food and hospitality. The location close to great walks and town very nice. We enjoyed meeting locals (like ranch... More

We came into Mendocino late in the day and thought we'd try a few places for availability. The Headlands Inn offered us their last room, the Casper Cottage, at a reduced rate since it was a Monday, and they weren't yet full. Mitch met us at the door and had the heat already on in our delightful little cottage. The... More

Well this review is way overdue. We started going to the Headlands about 10 years ago. The first time we stayed we loved it so much we booked the second reservation before we left. Mendocino itself is such a peaceful place. Denise and Mitch are the perfect innkeepers. They truly pay attention to detail. The wonderful feather mattresses the fireplaces... More

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
