The Hosts are lovely and friendly. I felt well met, and the generous reception and house is more than charming. The Grounds are lovely and the history of location being a brewery from the mid 1800's is an intriguing background. Everything had me wanting to come back. especially breakfast!! So good, perfect choices, and perfect blackberry cream scones....!

I could not believe how beautiful this location was and how the rooms, breakfast area and sitting areas were aranged to make use of the view, absolutely perfect. We stayed in the room called Moonshine and everything from decore, space, luxury and cleanliness exceeded... More

What a great review! We are glad that the Moonstone cottage fit your needs. We have remodeled all the cottages since we purchased the inn. Our most recent change is the breakfast room and we certainly took advantage of the ocean view when we designed it. So glad you enjoyed it. More

The grounds of the inn are spectacular with flowers, lawns, comfortable chairs with incredible views of the ocean. The innkeepers, David and Cheri, were friendly, helpful and fun and the breakfasts were outstanding. My husband and I were on a romantic getaway weekend and couldn't have asked for anything better.

We are glad you enjoyed our colorful gardens. We really do have a special spot with the stunning ocean views and beautiful grounds (that was a priority when we bought the inn 10 years ago). Innkeepers Cheri and Dave are also one of our best features. We are so pleased you chose Agate Cove Inn for your romantic getaway and... More

My husband and I are in LOVE with this place! The breakfast was beyond delicious AND filling! The grounds were lush and quiet and is framed by a gorgeous view of the ocean! No real beach access from this particular spot, you have to drive about 5 minutes. And from parking "lot" you do hear traffic on the main road,... More

Our first time at this delightful B&B along the Mendocino Coast. Came to celebrate my birthday. David and Sherry are wonderful hosts, and great cooks as well. Can't say enough about the tasty, beautifully presented breakfasts. They provide an array of choices on the buffet table ... Homemade granola, yogurt, fruit, bagels, hard boiled eggs, as well as special treats.... More

It is always a pleasure for us to see our guests photos. Thank you for sharing yours on Trip Advisor. We are glad you took advantage of some of the inn's best features ( the hot tub, the Adirondacks facing the ocean) and we loved reading your detailed comments about breakfast. Cheri's peach scones are perfect with peaches in season... More

Stayed in the Sunstone Cottage with a beautiful view of ocean. Innkeepers warm and welcoming. Stayed here 3 nights as we eloped to Mendocino and found Agate Cove through Internet searches. They have a wonderful breakfast area and inkeepers very attentive to every need.

We went here for our 1 year wedding anniversary. We soaked in the in-room jacuzzi, sat on our great patio and watched the sun rise & set, and enjoyed a great breakfast. The fireplace by our bed was nice. It couldn't have been better.

My wife came to renew our wedding vows and celebrate our 10th anniversary. We were warmly greeted by Dave and Sherry. Next to the amazing views of the Ocean was the incredible breakfasts they made every morning along with the baked goodness! Simply a must stay location if you're in Mendocino or the North Coast, we'll definitely be back again!

We are happy to read that you will be back again for more "baked goodness". Our new innkeeper Cheri, previously owned her own bakery and we are always amazed at her creations. Good views and a good breakfast are a great way to start your adventures. So glad we hit the mark. More

We stayed here for one night while on a motorbike trip. The room was lovely, it had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable. Everyone was super friendly and the breakfast was delicious. We were slightly disappointed that the hotub had just been emptied and refilled that day so it was too cold to go into, but the jacuzzi bathtub... More
