We arrived at Headlands Inn to warm friendly greetings and the delicious aroma of carrot bread baking in the oven. Our room was clean and inviting with super views. The breakfasts each morning were spectacular. This was the perfect location for exploring Mendocino on foot. We would definitely like to return here.

Aloha everyone, My significant other and I stayed at the Headlands Inn in Mendocino the other night as part of a 10 day summer vacation road trip up the Northern California coast. Unequivocally, this B&B is the nicest I've stayed in. There are of course a ton to choose from in Mendocino, since that (hospitality & tourism) seems to be... More

Headlands Inn is located close to the center of Mendocino, on a quiet side street with views toward both the ocean and hills. The fresh cut flowers, hosts that consistently greet you by name and look after all needs, and elegant rooms all make you feel at home. But the Inn truly shines with its gourmet breakfasts, pictured here from... More

We had such a great time at this lovely B&B. The room is really nice, clean and comfy and the hosts were so friendly. And the breakfast was even better! Just great, that’s how it should always be like!

My wife and I stayed at the Headlands for a couple of nights. We stayed in the Wilson Room, who's is on the second floor. It is very spacious with its own deck, and a wood burning fireplace, which was thoughtfully loaded with kindling and wood and ready to go! Everything was spotless. Next time, I hope to get the...

We stayed one night in Annie's room which was economical, but were sorry we hadn't stayed in one of the rooms that overlooked the ocean. Very cute B&B with large comfortable sitting room that had afternoon tea and cookies. Large interesting breakfast is at 9am in your room(no exception to time) which was late for us as we had lots...

We stayed here, sadly, for only one night. We were limited on time, but LOVED this place. Very clean, charming, beautifully appointed. Amazing breakfast delivered right to our room, which was DELICIOUS! Denise and her husband do a top notch job and are friendly without being too imposing, and very interested in how they could make our stay the best... More

The location was perfectly situated off the ocean and walking distance all throughout the town of Mendocino. The Inn itself is a bit dated but charming. We stayed in a separate cottage across the street. They did not serve breakfast to us as they did the other rooms in the Inn because we were off property. We had a quaint... More

We’re happy that you enjoyed the location of the Headlands Hideaway! The Hideaway is the only room we offer that does not include breakfast, as you mentioned, because it’s located off property. But we hope that you will someday consider to return and stay in the main inn, where we’d love to serve you a delicious breakfast delivered to the... More

There is no better rating than staying by choice 25 years in a row. The room is always clean and cozy with the fireplace an after dinner treat, the bathroom is spotless, and owners Mitch & Denise-WOW!
