We visited Fensalden Inn for our 1st wedding anniversary. It rained our entire wedding weekend in February 2014. Sure enough, exactly one year later, the storms came rolling in. And it was far worse. We stayed at the Inn for 3 nights and had about 6 hours of electrical power the entire stay. It could have ruined the weekend, but... More

We had a terrific experience during a weekend stay at the Inn. We booked the Bungalow, which was a wonderful cottage located at the end of the quiet property. The bungalow is great for a family/friends trip -- with a kitchen, grill, and many beds there is a lot of space to enjoy company. Breakfast is great! Homemade quiche and... More

My wife and I just returned from a short trip to Mendocino. We stayed two nights at Fensalden. The Inn is beautiful. We stayed in the main building (there are three choices, the main Inn, the tower and the bungalow). Chris made us very welcome, breakfast is delicious and the conversation informative. The room was very comfortable but the main... More

One of the best experiences in a long time. Everything was perfect, the house (in an perfect location: between the beautiful redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean, you actually can see both from your room), the breakfast (exquisite, a shame they don't do dinners too, you wouldn't want to eat anywhere else), and, of course, the family (Molli, Chris, little...

The Fensalden Inn was by far our very best B&B experience in many years. It was an absolute gem of a B&B in every respect and more reasonably priced than any other quality place we've found in all of our travels in the Mendocino area. We stayed in the very spacious, beautiful - and romantic! - "Hawthorne Suite" with its... More

We stayed in the Bungalow at Fensalden Inn and absolutely loved it. It is a little rustic, but very charming. The breakfast each morning was delicious and just what we needed to start our day. We will definitely stay again when we head back to the coast!

This is not the first time we have stayed at Fensalden but it is the first time since the Inn changed ownership years ago. It's as good as ever.

Completely renovated, the Inn continues to offer a quiet respite from the hectic pace of today's world. Revel in our complete three-course gourmet breakfast each morning (with champagne and mimosas on Sundays), and gaze upon the ever-changing Pacific in the evenings as you marvel at our bird sanctuary while relaxing with a sip of port wine, complimented by a chocolate jerk ball, in the original Tavern Room.All accommodations offer a queen bed (Ridge Room offers king), gas or wood burning fireplace, small refrigerator with complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival, and private bath with shower. Tower Suite and Bungalow house a full kitchen will necessary utensils and amenities; both also have tub (Bungalow has tub with jacuzzi jets). Four rooms have private entrances, 6 with private deck, porch or balcony; majority offer ocean view.
