Spent 3 nights last week and it was phenomenal. Since the weather was so beautiful (in the high 60's and sunny) that added to it. The rooms like right out onto the ocean about 200 yards away so the view was exceptional. The rooms were a tiny bit "tired" but it does look like they are doing some renovations. I had a wood burning fireplace with limitless wood..As the evening got cold the fire was wonderful. Two chairs and a table just inside the picture windows and chairs on the deck outside made it perfect for reading a book, watching the fire, or staring out into the ocean. If there HAD been whales, I would have seen them from the room. Highly recommend this place as one for a personal or couples retreat. Also had a facial in their spa by Laurie -- which was heavenly. Only 2 miles to Mendocino for daily jaunts or a little activity. I'll be back!
