I just have one word to describe my experience: Amazing! First, Bettilou is amazing. Bettilou's hospitality is incredible, since I made the reservation, she was kindly, called to know my husband's name, if we had any alimentar restriction and to say thank you to book her place. She was totally friendly when we arrived, we felt totally welcome. Second, the... More

Bettilou's is the most amazing inn we have ever stayed at. Bettilou's hospitality is incredible, she is very friendly and she is extremely knowledgeable of the Mendocino area. She gave us excellent restaurant recommedations. We stayed in the ocean room on a bluff overlooking Mendocino - it was truly paradise being here and being able to wake up to this... More

My wife and I spent three lovely nights with Bettilou and thoroughly relished in the beauty of the Ocen View room. The bluff about 50 feet from our windows dropped off to the Pacific -- so the sun, the fog, or the mist enveloped us every morning. Then Bettilou would walk into our room and provide a breakfast that made... More

What a wonderful place this is. We were in the Ocean view room as we were the only guest, I had booked the Cove room but Bettilou let us have the better views. Wine time was wonderful and we had a really good chat to Bettilou. We were spread out in the guest lounge with all our laptops and other... More

Bettilou’s Inn is perfectly situated on an isolated bluff overlooking the Pacific some one mile south of Mendocino. At first sight it appears a long rambling cottage but inside all is warm and cosy, very much a home from home. There are just the two comfortable ensuite rooms – The Ocean View and The Cove and Garden View - and... More

This gem of a place looks out on the cove just south of Mendocino. No noise or disturbances, just the sounds of the ocean and the birds. You won't find a more warm and hospitable hostess than Bettilou. During "wine time" in the late afternoon you will enjoy lovely snacks as you watch the ocean and the hummingbirds from the... More

I'm finally getting around to writing up Bettylou's place. Our stay was amazing! Last winter's storm was fierce, and the ocean was putting on her best show. We drove the coast until we found this gem with the best location possible. I was looking forward to the sunset and booming waves lulling me to sleep. What was a surprise was... More

From the moment we arrived we realized this place was different. We met Bettilou, sat down and had wine and snacks. She is an amazing conversationalist. She left us alone and we wandered around the sitting room and our own room. We had ocean views and hummingbirds everywhere. This place is on a cliff! We hung out in the room... More
