“Loved Abigails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2007

Berthoud, Colorado

Just returned from Abigails Bed and Breakfast in Mendocino. Had a fabulous time, Richard and Susan are the best inkeepers.
The rooms were lovely, clean and comfortable (bed was great). With daily maid service and fresh baked coffee cake and muffins each morning. Coffee was tasty and the service was always welcoming. I'd love to stay there again.

My wife and daughter and our 2 dogs and I all stayed the night at Abigail's. It was wondferful. We were so well taken care of, and the place is fantastic. The town is adorable and the staff is excellent. We loved our accomodations and the trip was a blast. Thank you, Abigail's!

My wife and I enjoyed a comfortable stay at Abigail's with our dog for two nights. We had never been to Mendocino before and wanted to bring our dog along to enjoy the quaint town we had heard so much about.

Abigail's did not dissapoint! It was a pleasure to have such a pet friendly place to stay. The proprietors and staff were so very friendly and welcoming. We were invited to enjoy a lovely breakfast at Whitegate Inn -- the elegant yet comfortable Victorian B&B that we thought would be perfect for our next anniversary trip (without the dog). They really made us feel at home and even gave a lot of attention to our sweet german shepherd.

The Whitegate had wine and cheese every day and again, we felt quite welcome and comfortable being there. We had heard about their "endless" chocolate chip cookies. They were delicious! And we even met the artful innkeepers making them in the kitchen.

All in all, our stay at Abigail's was well above our expectations in terms of how friendly the people are and how comfortable we felt, even with our dog along for the visit!

And Mendocino is just as charming as we had heard. A big thanks to Richard and Susan from Whitegate Inn for making us feel so at home at Abigail's! We hope to see them again.

  • Liked — Comfortable accomodations and friendly staff.
  • Disliked — Difficult to get to from Northern CA (six hour drive from Mount Shasta).
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay at Abigail's for kid/pet friendly or at the Whitegate Inn for elegance and pampering.

My wife and I recently stayed several days (June 2006) at this charming little B&B in Mendocino, CA. It's associated with the "Whitegate Inn," which is practically next door. Our room was "Abigail's Drawing Room" (or "Room #1)." The room was very airy, bright, and comfortable, and very spacious for a B&B. The bathroom was also very spacious, and included a full bath and shower. The room had a nice large closet, a TV, and one of the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in. I have to say, that by far, we got tremendous "value" for our money at this B&B. It included a daily continental breakfast, but because of low midweek occupancy, we were invited to join the other guests at the Whitegate Inn and partake of the complete hot breakfast. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Richard and Susan Strom are also the ultimate B&B "hosts;" very nice and caring people.

This excellent B&B now known as Abigails is managed by the owners of the Whitegate Inn (2 doors down). On arrival (at the Whitegate) we were met be the friendly owners who showed us to our room in Abigails. We were very pleased with our room, which contained beautiful antique furniture and a huge 4-poster bed. The room contained a free welcome pack with bottles of water, home made cookies etc. and was spotless, bright and airy.

The breakfast was spectacular with everything home made (additional freshly baked muffins and scones (biscuits for US readers) arrived while we were mid-way through our breakfast). We found, Gretchen who prepared the breakfast, extremely friendly.

The house is in an excellent location just off the main street and is conveniently located to all amenities.

We will definitely stay here again particularly given that this B&B is not the most expensive around. It represented probably the best value for money of our entire 3-week stay in California.
