We chose the Agate Cove Inn for our first trip to Mendocino. I selected it from seeing their website which represents this lodging in excellent fashion. One is instinctively anxious when visiting a new place and lodging, but we were immediately pleased with our rooms and the ocean front vista. We stayed in the Amber room one night and the... More

The Agate Cove Inn is located in a gorgeous spot overlooking the blue Pacific in Mendocino. The property is beautiful, the food is great, the rooms are really comfy and decorated tastefully. The owner, Laraine, is hospitable and the staff friendly. We hated to leave when our vacation came to an end. It truly is a slice of heaven on... More

Best view in Mendicino!! Yes, you can stay one night on your way to another destination but I recommend a longer stay. Lorraine and Roger are wonderful hosts, the food and service were superb and there are lots of great hikes, kayak adventures, shops and restaurants in the area - stay longer!

I currently work at a boutique hotel on the east coast near New York and consider myself well aware of the differences between making a persons stay run-of-the-mill and fantastic. My stay at Agate Cove Inn was nothing short of perfect. Every detail of the stay was well catered to from beginning to end. From the get go, I was... More

Me and my girlfriend decided to go here for a little romantic getaway as I had heard good things about the place from a few people. We were expecting a nice little inn with a great view but we were just not prepared for how amazing this place was. I think the first word I said when I turned into... More

If I had walked through this property instead of actually staying, I would have given it five stars. If you are an early riser this might be your dream Bed and Breakfast. There are blinds on the windows, but no room darkening curtains that those who are used to staying in hotels have come to expect. But, if you normally... More

Thank you for reviewing our inn. We certainly take all the feedback into consideration because we want to make sure that everyone has a great stay. We do have screens for all the windows. Our guests keep removing them so they are stored close by and easily popped back on. You stayed recently when we had temperatures that were in... More

The Agate Cove is truly a special place to visit. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, gorgeous grounds and the nicest owners. We knew immediately that our stay was going to be one for the books. Once we got the keys and arrived in... More

My husband and I were looking for a relaxing stay in Mendocino for a few days before hitting the big city of San Francisco...I saw the pictures of Agate Cove on TripAdvisor and immediately wanted to stay there.

Thank you for staying with us for four nights. You can really get to know the area when you stay longer than two nights. We are a highly scenic location and spring time is ideal for color and sunshine. We are glad you had a wonderful experience in Mendocino. We appreciate all the kind things you wrote about our inn....

My husband and I spent the weekend here celebrating our first year of marriage. This place exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the Amber room which was a good size, clean, and no detail was overlooked. From the docking station for my iPhone that allowed me to stream music the entire time to the corkscrew I had forgotten to pack.... More

We love reading reviews such as yours. Amber is one of my favorite cottages and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay there. Yes, we are so close to the ocean so the sound of the waves can lull you to sleep. We often see guests enjoying the sunny deck from the Amber room that is set among the... More

All of it meticulously manicured, in fact the overall condition of the the entire inn was flawless.
