Stayed here in June and loved it. Stayed in Kits Cabin there was a sitting area, fireplace, small private bathroom, and a very comfy bed. Location was perfect, breakfast was excellent and there were several nice common areas to relax in and a really nice garden. Kits cabin also has a semi private area in front of the room as... More

What a gem. The property has 2 houses, the main one, with the kitchen, dining room and living room downstairs and 2 rooms upstairs; and an adjacent one with one room downstairs and two upstairs facing the ocean. We stayed in the Osprey Room that has a nice deck overlooking the ocean, only 2 blocks away The room is quiet,... More

My wife and I had a wonderful stay in the water tower room. We stayed on a Monday night in early March, and were the only guests at the inn on that particular night. Nevertheless, the friendly staff prepared a wonderful breakfast for us the next morning. The room was very cozy and attractive, if a bit run down. The... More

I had gotten sick at one of the Restaurants that they had referred me to ,and they were nice enough to get my money back from the restaurant, and... More

Water Tower was quaint and sweet, until we used the firplace and was smoked out. That was when we realized there are no opening windows in there. Not pleasant to have all your clothes smell like a fireplace. Then the entire comlex ran out of water. We're talking not one little drop. It took the guests notifying the owners to... More

This Inn is located in town with easy access to town and Mendocino Headlands State Park. Charming and updated. Great bedding. Our room had a nice deck with a view overlooking the historic district and the sea. Ideal location for watching Sunrise and Sunset. Nice gardens and historic. Awesome!

The pluses: really cool buildings decorated in shabby chic style, great location in Mendocino, beautiful view, charming gardens with amazing hydrangea plants, nice staff. The minuses: sometimes there was too much 'shabby' and too little 'chic'- the towels and shower curtain were shredded, there was a dangerously broken leg on the desk chair, & there were cob webs on all...

The check in was very easy, friendly, organized. They had tea and brownies (buffet style) waiting for us when we checked in. The room was really clean and fresh. We stayed in the Water Tower on the side of the B & B. Just beautiful and romantic. I just loved the old Water Tower built in 1867. It was the... More

Beautiful house with great furniture and design. The rooms we had were Port and Starboard and they were good but with no view. The service was very poor, when asked out a breakfast box as we were leaving very early the last morning they refused and said that it wasn't available. Disappointed with the service but the house is nice
