My wife and I stayed one night with Bettie Lou and wish we had stayed longer because we didn't want to leave! The ocean view room was spotless and cozy and what a view! We were perched on the edge of the bluff with spectacular views of the ocean and a couple of beautiful coves. We were treated to the... More

Majestic - this best describes Bettilou's Inn. My husband & I stayed one night in the ocean view room, what a beautiful view. The ocean "roared" all night and the waves were rolling in 15-20 ft. heights. We watched the many hummingbirds visiting the feeders, and felt the mist on our faces. Bettilou is a delight. She is so interesting... More

The Bettilou Inn is an absolute gem perched just feet from the bluffs' edge on Mendocino Bay about a mile south of the village of Mendocino. There are only two beautiful guest rooms with private baths but if you are lucky enough to snag either of them you will be glad you did. Both rooms are large with comfy beds,... More

We had a lovely overnight stay. This is an old property located on old CA 1 across the bay from Mendocino and perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. There are two guest rooms, which are well furnished, and a comfortable living room. Complimentary wine in late afternoon. Breakfast was served in the room and was excellent. Bettilou makes one...

The in-room breakfast was great ( she even made real coffee for us) the afternoon wine and snacks were extended to be a real dinner. So we felt... More

My friends and I spent 3 nights at Bettilou's just last weekend. I had looked around to find a dreamy B & B on the net. The location is stunning. A cute home on a bluff with the ocean below and a small patio you can sit at and enjoy the view. Just inside is the living room furnished with... More

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at Bettilou's. At first I was skeptical about the other reviews. How could this be? Well, they are all correct. It is that good. We were so pampered and Bettilou is such a delight without being intrusive. She leaves nothing to chance and we felt at home and so... More

Just returned from a delightful trip to Mendocino County, CA. Really enjoyed my visit, and look forward to returning to this picturesque town again. Following a breath-taking (literally -- don't take Highway 1 if you are afraid of heights with awesome vistas, hairpin turns and a narrow two-lane highway, with few opportunities for passing) drive from the San Francisco-area, Bettilou's...

Bettilou is very warm and hospitable.. Her bed and breakfast is a true ocean view. It is on the edge of the cliff next to the ocean unlike the other BnB's which claim ocean view but are actually miles away. Its truly amazing to see the sunset sitting in her patio with a glass of wine in hand. It was... More

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
