Very warm welcome, efficient service, excellent rooms & decor. Met other guests for early evening drinks in the lounge, nice touch. Restaurants nearby good value. Good sleep and excellent breakfast to set us on our way Will return

This was my first stay at a B&B, so I had some preconceived notion of a full house of strangers milling around a strange home. Needless to say, the entire experience was very pleasant. Upon arrival, a ring of the doorbell greets you with the hostess of the property, Nan. She is a very sweet and kind person and took... More

All the reviews of this B&B are correct. Lovely place, beautifully decorated etc. Our one disappointment was that breakfast is served at 9 am. So if you have to be on the road earlier than that, like we had to, you are out of luck. I have never experienced this at a B&B before. Usually they ask when you would... More

This was an exceptional stay. My wife and I haven't stayed at a B&b for many years and we couldn't have picked a more perfect Inn to stay. The welcome was warm and made us feel very much at home. The Victorian has been thoroughly renovated with a sophisticated charm, tastefully decorated and richly appointed. The wine served at the... More

We were lucky enough to stay at the Blue Door Inn this past fall. I have to say that I couldn’t recommend this wonderful B&B enough. We made arrangements to come in mid afternoon and were warmly greeted by Nan, the innkeeper and provider of all food wonderful. She showed us to our room which might as well have been... More

I stayed here on New Years Eve and despite it being a holiday it was nothing short of amazing. When I first walked in--my breath was taken away. I felt like I had walked into a Restoration Hardware catalogue, everything had a place and was simply beautiful. The best way to sum it up: elegance. I had wanted to stay... More

I recently stayed at The Blue Door Inn for a weekend getaway with my mom. We were very impressed with the place, room, and Nan! The inn is very tastefully decorated, the beds are incredibly comfortable (with the exception of the pillows, which needed to be firmer), and the breakfasts are amazing! Seriously, so delicious. Nan was very accommodating and... More

The Blue Door Inn is a perfect place to stay in Mendocino. Beautifully decorated with warm comfy rooms, only four in all. Our room had a large bathroom with separate shower and jetted tub and a sitting area with a fireplace. Breakfast was delicious with more food than you can wish for. Other guests were from all over the world.... More
