We stayed in the Stofle room, downstairs, with a view of the bay and the Inn's beautiful garden. We loved everything about this place. If I had to imagine my ideal bedroom for my house, it would be this one. That simple. And the rest of the building is very charming, too. Very peaceful and quiet. The owners are very... More

We stayed in the Strauss suite (the room with the large bay window), as we were looking for a room with two beds. The second bed was a pull out couch, which resembled a poor cousin to the opulently dressed king sized bed, but two beds was our request and was duly provided. It was a chilly, drizzly day on...

Many nice comments, thank you! We’re happy that you had a pleasurable stay with us! But I need to mention that in the 11 years that we’ve had the inn, this is the first comment that our stairs low key safety lighting of 40 watt candlelight bulbs were too bright. And I must agree, the neighboring B&B have bright outside... More

I stayed for one night in one of the rooms on the top floor. The room was very cozy, the bed soft and comfortable, and the view in the morning on the ocean was just absolutely beautiful. The breakfast, which they bring to your room, was more delicious than expected. I will definitely be back.

This was our first time at a B&B. We were invited by my cousin who had stayed here once before. As soon as I laid eyes on this beautiful home, I was in love. Denise and Mitch welcomed us, and again I was in love with them. They are so friendly and helpful. We stayed three nights, this was the... More

We've stayed at the Headlands Inn for 5 years now and wouldn't think of wandering. Mendocino is such a refreshing, beautiful town, and the Headlands mirrors all that is unique there. Denise and Mitch are always ready to advise and assist. The Location is spectacular, and the breakfast alone is worth the trip. We prefer the Patircia Stoffle room on... More

The innkeepers at Headlands Inn were delightful, and made my solo birthday trip special. Their advice on local eateries was very helpful (I'd been to Mendocino many times before, but their information was up to date.) I've stayed in many B & B's in the area; this one is very convenient to the town and excellent for a solo traveler... More

We had such a wonderful stay. Everything was clean, well kept. The room was very comfortable. Feather top on the bed and feather pillows. Warm comforter. The view from our room was wonderful. We could see the ocean in one direction, and the town in two others. Light and airy room. The owner is so friendly, and she made it... More

We have stayed here at about the same time every year for the past 6 or 7 years. We stay in the cottage, a small self-contained unit with all of the comforts of home, including TV, microwave, refrigerator, WiFi, etc. The bath area is spacious and modern, and the cottage is homey, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Sitting on the couch... More

My husband and I stayed at the Headlands Inn twice for my Mendocino High School reunions: once in 2003 and again in 2013. That we returned to the inn tells you everything; there are many B&Bs to choose from but we felt we'd already found the perfect place. Mendocino has everything you might desire in a coastal getaway: beaches, charming... More
