I am conflicted as I write this review. Assuredly, I would desire to keep this place hidden away, as my very own, precious gem. Alas, I am also compelled to dole out accolades, where accolades are due! My husband and I recently stayed at the Agate in the Amber suite. We were beset with elation when we walked into the...

You sure do paint a beautiful picture of the inn! I can certainly understand your desire to keep our cozy place under wraps, but it truly is too gorgeous not to share. Even if it was only for a short getaway, I'm so glad you and your husband had such a restful stay. You're always welcome back, so I hope... More

we recently stayed at the Agate Cove Inn--and were very pleasantly surprised. The room was very comfortable; breakfast was delicious and the owners, Laraine and Roger were so gracious and helpful. The view? Words or photos cannot adequately describe the spectacular view especially at sunset!!! Loved our stay!

We stayed at the Agate Cove Inn for 2 nights. This B & B is wonderful! It's location is perfect and we feel it is the best in Mendocino! It has a beautifully landscaped yard.

It's pretty hard to beat a Mendocino sunset, and I'm thrilled you enjoyed watching it from the Sunstone room! Above all, we want you to have a memorable stay, and it sounds like our amenities and ocean views left quite an impression. You'll always be welcomed back, so I hope we'll have the opportunity to have you stay with us... More

My wife and I stayed at Agate Cove over the Easter weekend. Customer service was excellent, staff was polite. No continental breakfast here, we had a delicious full breakfast, always different and very good. Staff is polite and courteous. We highly recommend this Inn.

This gem of a bed and breakfast just a half mile from downtown Mendocino was a great place to celebrate my birthday along with my husband and our terrier. The owner/operators run a very clean and comfortable establishment and serve excellent breakfast fare. The room we had was spacious and cozy with a gas fireplace, sumtuous bedding and a view...

This is the second visit for my wife and I. What great innkeepers/owners they have here. You are made to feel as though you're the only ones there, even though you see a room full of guests.
