We arrived one hour too early, but could already check in. Thank you! The welcome was very warm, and we received a lot of suggestions for spending the afternoon: The walk along the coast, starting one block from the house, was breathtaking, and so was the sunset later from the second floor of The Flow. The Patricia Stofle Room is... More

We stayed in late January, which is technically the California 'winter'. This was actually cold and rainy this year, and our previous homes and hotels had been pretty chilly. The Headlands Inn was wonderfully warm, comfortable and we even could have turned up the heat if we had wanted to do so. Breakfast arrived at 8:30 or 8:45 in the... More

This is a great little place to stay if you are looking for more interaction with people in town. The owners are wonderful and go to great lengths to make sure you are comfortable and cozy. There is breakfast that is brought to your door and it feels just like home. I stayed in a room that had a woodstove... More

I only had time to spend one night at this beautiful and relaxing inn, but I definitely want to return. When I checked in, Leslie had just taken a tray of cookies from the oven and their aroma filled the inn. When she asked me to try one, of course I could not refuse. She said there were lots more...

Everything about the Headlands Inn was delightful. Spent three comfy nights in the Bessie Strauss Suite in early December. The room was beautiful, the bed was heaven, the view was perfect, and breakfasts were yummy and plentiful. The owners and staff were so welcoming and helpful. I walked into town each morning, grabbed a large latte and strolled along the... More

This year my husband and I decided to celebrate the holiday in Mendocino and were impressed with the favorable reviews from other travelers. We stayed in the Wilson Room for two nights, which has a lovely porch for warm weather, as well as a cozy Queen bed and fireplace. The Inn is lovingly cared for and the owners and various... More

We had two of the best night's sleep of our entire 15 day road trip at the Headlands Inn. It was so cozy and relaxing in the John Barry Room! The breakfast were amazing - so yummy! And, Innkeeper Kelly kept us in stitches with her banter. Loved Mendocino and our stay here!

We stayed here for one night in November and got a great last minute rate. The Inn is decorated very nicely and the hosts were both very gracious. We stayed in Annie's room which is a queen bed on the first floor. It was quiet and peaceful at the Inn. Easy walk to ocean and places to eat and shop.... More

We were fortunate enough to book 2 rooms here in November 2015. House is a beautiful Victorian with views of the ocean from the front rooms. Well located and an easy walk to shops, hiking the headlands, and restaurants. Breakfast was AMAZING! (And included in price). We had stuffed French toast, sausage, OJ, fruit all served to our room. They... More

My Mother and I went to Mendocino on a little vacay in October. We had reservations at another B&B weeks in advance in Little River. That Inn (Dennen's) was so awful we refused to stay there. So we left and went into Mendocino late. We decided to stop and see if the Headlands Inn had a room available. We were... More
