I am still in awe at how amazing our stay was here. The view from our room was impeccable and the walking distance to the headlands was fantastic. Mel is a great guy and was personable but gave us our space as well. This isn't your traditional b&b and we couldn't be happier. Our room was clean and spacious and... More

Hi Folks! Writing to share that we just returned from our annual trip to Seaside Cottages. We stayed in our same favorite "Tropical" cottage. We were delighted that we were able to add a Thurs night stay to our long weekend. The thing that made this trip better than past trips is that we finally met the infamous "Mel". What... More

Excellent location where you can walk to the Headlands state park from the front porch. The highlight of the trip was the excellent hospitality afforded by Mel. The Honeymoon suite we stayed in was well appointed with the view of the ocean siting on the bed. Quiet place yet close to town of Mendocino is a gem. Highly recommended.

Recently enjoyed a tranquil birthday escape to this beautiful cottage overlooking the magnificent Mendocino Headlands! The Vista View room has panoramic views of the ocean & a scenic deck for lounging with morning coffee or nightcaps. Mel & Norm could not have been more gracious and welcoming to us and our pooch. Cozy accommodations, comfortable bed, great shower-head, a coffee-maker,... More

The owners of this place make your stay so incredibly easy. We ended up getting in super late (10:30 pm) but they make it easy to get in workout having to formally check in. The jacuzzi was wonderful. Comfortable bed. It was just weekday my husband and I needed.

My wife and I call this "our coast house" because we use it for quick weekend getaways when life gets too hectic on our side of the hill. Comfortable accommodations, no-hassle check-in/out and the jacuzzi tub to soak away the stress. Highly recommended.

We arrived in Mendocino late Saturday afternoon and were very lucky to find a room here. Our room was in front but had views of the ocean- no sunset, the fog came in. We enjoyed the jacuzzi tub. large gas fireplace and king size bed. Bedroom area spotless, toilet room needed a bit more care. Lots of blue fluff(?) on... More
