My boyfriend and I, along with our 10-year-old dog Fudge, stayed at the Shangri-La cliff side cottage through Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. First, I was elated that the place actually looked like it did in the pictures. It was stunning! Everything was cozy and intimate and we enjoyed the privacy. The big picture windows overlooking the ocean made the experience... More

Finding a place to stay in the Mendocino area that is kid-friendly is NOT an easy task..we wanted something closer to town than Fort Bragg, but what we found... More

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek! We were welcome with open arms, as were our two well-behaved dogs. We travel a lot with our dogs and appreciated how truly dog friendly (not just dog tolerant) the inn is. The property itself is lovely, and we appreciated the little touches in the room: coffee, wine glasses,... More

Spent two nights here recently with three friends and we absolutely loved it! We stayed in the Ledford Cottage, which has one king bed, one queen bed and a pull-out couch. We didn't use the pull-out couch, but the beds were VERY comfy. (The bedrooms did get a little cold at night because the main heat for the cottage comes... More

My husband and I just spent 5 days at the inn and didn't want to leave. It is so peaceful and relaxing and the innkeepers Sandy and Kevin are the best. They are always checking to make sure you have everything you need. The cottage is very clean and the bed is so comfortable you don't want to get up... More

We stayed in the Captains Watch for one night on our road trip. The room is nice but it felt a little tired and there were a few maintenance issues: - Curtains on main door don't close fully and blinds don't close. This is more for privacy than anything else as the room is designed so that you wake with... More

The staff was extremely friendly. They upgraded us to the Rose Cottage because they had a cancellation. Our luck! It was perfect for my husband, myself and our 7 month old Labrador. They had tons of places to walk her.
