We just returned from our trip to Mendocino and our stay for 5 days at the Agate Cove Inn. The owners Roger and Laraine were so personable and friendly. Our room had a view of the Pacific and the beds were very comfortable. Upon the next visit I will ask for a cottage that has more of an ocean view.... More

We just returned from a weekend at the Agate Cove Inn. Although the room was comfortable, the breakfast was delicious and the views and proximity to Mendocino were great, the road noise was just too much. We stayed in the Zircon room and it is literally backs right up to from Hwy 1. Although the noise does quiet down at... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our inn. We are glad that you thought our inn was nice. Mendocino is built on the coast and unfortunately Highway One runs the entire coastline of the state. We are fortunate to be on the ocean side of Highway 1 so the road noise does not drift up to...

We just returned from a weekend at the Agate Cove Inn. We have been to Mendocino many times but have never stayed at this lovely Inn. The owners were very attentive and a fabulous full breakfast was included in our room fee. There are wonderful views from this property of the rugged coast and you can take it in from... More

Breathtaking site overlooking Headlands Park and the ocean. Our room was very comfortable, with lovely Victorian touches. The bed was sooooo comfortable, my little nap was epic, Breakfast is delicious and looking out the wall of glass, you feel a part of the sea. Loraine and Roger were very helpful about the area.

Pros: Great ocean views; friendly hosts; tasty breakfast; cute. Cons: musty smell in the room. I recommend it for a weekend getaway. Not far from the town. We actually did whale watching using binoculars from the breakfast room...

Stayed in the Amber room which has a private balcony, gas fireplace, queen bed, whirlpool bath, shower, and partial view of Mendocino Headlands and coastline. Setting is one of the best in Mendocino for a view of the coast. Within walking distance to Headlines and... More

This was our one night splurge (over $300) on our 2 week road trip. Our room (the Jasper) had many nice touches included wine glasses, complimentary sherry, gas fireplace, a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, and way too many pillows. The gardens were still interesting at this time of year. Arriving in quite heavy fog there was a limited view... More

We found ourselves in Mendocino after visiting Napa Valley. Stumbled upon this amazing little B & B. We didn't have a reservation but the receptionist kindly showed us three rooms to choose from and she could not have been nicer. She commented how wonderful the owners were and that we would meet them in the morning. We settled into a... More

My husband and I found the Agate Cove Inn on line while researching places to stay in Mendocino as part of our driving trip to Oregon. Everything looked so lovely and the reviews were great, so we took a chance. Well, we arrived rather late, just in time before Roger left to walk Nava and he was so accommodating. We... More

Having been shut out of Yosemite due to the government shut down we found ourselves traveling Route 1 with few plans. We ended up in Mendecino and fortunately checked into the Agate. The owners were very welcoming. The cottage was perfect. The view of the Pacific amazing. We enjoyed touring the town and meeting nice local folks. Everything is close... More

Thank you for your great review. We agree, Mendocino has some great trails and paths for joggers to enjoy with abundant nature and stunning views. It was a happy accident that you were able to stay here as Yosemite was closed. We are glad you were able to experience Mendocino and Agate Cove Inn. More
