Stayed in the Emerald cottage - perfect! Sit inside or on the patio - garden and ocean view. Friendly and professional proprietors - and make delicious breakfasts! Who wouldn't want mini peach cobblers, scones, Eggs Benedict and so much more. Then sightsee the area - lighthouses, botanical garden, beaches, walking paths and a downtown with shops and restaurants. Nice couples... More

We went there to celebrate our anniversary, my husband and I , and we noticed that many couples stayed in the same room ( Jasper ) for the same reason ! Our room had a view of the ocean , and I liked the fact that it was a separate cottage, no sharing walls with another room ! Their breakfast... More

Wonderful experience among caring folks who whipped up a great breakfast too! Close to all the fun places to see. Quiet clean room too. The room was spacious and quiet at night. Flowers around the property were a bit past their peal bloom but thats just the way it was.

We stayed in the Ruby room which is small but very comfortable. The staff at Agate Cove Inn was exceptional! Everyone was friendly and helpful.

The cozy and quaint cabins at the Agate Cove Inn are the definition of comfort. A luxury experience with a down-to-earth feel friendly feel. And the view, absolutely stunning even on a foggy day. I'll be day dreaming about this place for years to come. Hope to make it back one day.

The Agate Cove Inn was an absolutely perfect place for our babymoon! We stayed here five years ago for our honeymoon, and knew exactly where we wanted to go for a romantic getaway before our first baby arrives. We received a very generous upgrade to the Crystal Room. We felt so spoiled with the gorgeous view, amazing private deck, and... More

Charles was a very warm and welcoming host, and the Diamond Suite was perfect except for one thing: the hand-held shower could only be used if you sat in the tub. Difficult for me with my lower back issues and had I known there was no shower I would have asked for another room. That said, everything else was wonderful.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are blessed to have Charles on board with us as part of our staff. Thank you for giving him a nod. The chandelier above the jetted tub and the garden view window make it impossible to have an overhead shower so that is why there is a hand held shower... More

This place is blissful! My wife, Son and I really enjoyed our stay. The Breakfasts were delectable, everything was homemade (the bread pudding was the best I ever tasted). The room was spacious, clean and had most everything we needed. The view from our room was spectacular! Laraine Galloway (the owner) and her entire staff were very polite, courteous, professional...

We stayed at the Jasper cabin at this property for a couple of nights. The view west to the Pacific and the hotel grounds are lovely; the sunsets are amazing! The room itself was fine - bed was comfortable and bathroom was large and clean. Decor is not really our style. Gas fireplace heated up quickly on the cooler nights.... More

We appreciate the feedback you offered in your review. We hope you will return after we have the new wood flooring installed in the Jasper cottage. Cell coverage can be spotty on the Mendocino coast. Generally Verizon is good but ATT and TMobile are inconsistent. It sounds like you had a great time on the wine tour! That is always... More
