The inn is next to the Skunk train and walking distance to town. The view from the third floor of the tower is amazing. The food at breakfast was adequate. The gardens had definitely seen better days. The chickens and black cat were cute. The attention to details is lacking. The soap dish was broken in the shower so the soap sliver rested precariously on the part that attaches to the tile. The exterior needs power washing and some maintenance. The third day we arrived back to a dirty room. Vivian came and brought fresh towels and made the bed, but the trash was overflowing and no sanitizing. She was helpful in suggesting local attractions. We did go to the Botanical Gardens and the cliff views were gorgeous. The State Parks offered great day hikes (tip: go hike to the Pygmy Forest)
I posted this review on Yelp and she posted a reply with the last line that read "If you want to see fancy gardens in the winter, just a couple miles south of here is the remarkable Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens (they use roundup and a vast staff of volunteers instead of chickens to keep things tidy). If you want more winter color, there are several interesting cemeteries in the region, with a scattering of bouquets and plastic flowers". Hmmmm
