Rented the Fireplace and adjoining room with living room area. Really enjoyed the stay. Great access to beach. Cookies in the afternoon. Bottle of wine to welcome us. Good recommendations from the owners for restaurants and cafes. Would return

We stayed here right after Christmas, which is not too busy a time in Mendocino. We got the West room which is downstairs, so it had the issue of being a little noisy from the upstairs folks when they walked around. But this didn't really bother us. Other than that the room was charming and the bed was comfortable. It... More

We don't want to be too negative because essentially choosing a bed and breakfast was our mistake-we typically don't like them. We booked (and paid for) our two nights in the room at Raku House in advance. We chose the West Room based on price-again our mistake. It was quaint and had a certain cuteness but it was not functional.... More
