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

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
