“A perfect choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Two couples, we arrived in Mendocino after dark, tired and no arrangements made for where we'd sleep that night. We drove past Headlands Inn and saw the word "vacancy", and were lucky enough to be offered the final two rooms available. Denise was brisk and efficient with our check in, confirming our breakfast requests then suggesting we may wish to have a sherry in the upstairs lounge before heading out to dinner. Headlands Inn is centrally located, making it easy to browse through town and find a restaurant. We returned to our room and lit the fireplace before snuggling into bed for the night.
Breakfast was served to our room the next morning, and was delicious. We enjoyed a chat with Mitch on the history of Mendocino before packing up and saying our thanks for an excellent stay.

We just spent two nights there, and were very pleased. It is such a comfortable place and the food that they prepare every morning is just marvelous. If you stay multiple days, Denise takes care to ensure you have a different breakfast every day. We stayed in "Annie's Room", which is a small room in the back on the 1st floor. It was just fine for 2 people, and the mattress is excellent!
Oh - and the location is great and the cost was very reasonable as well.

Our stay at Headland was a wonderful experience! It is hard for us to travel because we have food sensitivity and I always need to bring food with us. In this case I was happily surprise how caring Denise was to prepare our breakfast using only the ingredients we could eat. And she made us delicious dishes. We feel at home, very relaxed environment, friendly, clean the list goes on and on. Thanks for your conscious service. We will be back!!! Happy Thanksgiving!

Room Tip: the most expensive room on the 2nd floor looking at the street is very nice.

The Headlands Inn is an ideal B&B for Mendocino. My wife and I stayed in the 3rd floor room in front, so we had an ocean view. We had stayed in this room two decades ago; and during that time, this B&B has only gotten better. Working fireplace in the room, windows on three sides, private modern bathroom - what more could one want? A lovely, imaginative and tasty breakfast is delivered to your room between 8:45 and 9 AM each morning. Our only complaint - and it was minor - was a feather-bed-bed-like comforter on top of the mattress, but under the bottom sheet. We could have asked for its removal, but didn't. It was too soft and lumpy. We'd return in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: 3rd floor room in front has an ocean view.

Wonderful experience!! Very relaxing, beautiful cottage, amazing breakfast!!! Fantastic location for exploring the shops and galleries in the town of Mendocino, and gorgeous walks in the Headlands. We barely use our car when we're here. Our favorite local getaway, and seventh stay in the cottage, and we'll be back.

Yea they bring it to your room, can you believe it, and the food is to die for (they share recipes too).
I could lay around in their beds and just eat, read and take nap's for days, ha ha. We were there on Valentines, day, and they left chocolate truffles and champagne in our room for us, (they know how to spoil a person).
They also offered to make reservations for us for dinner too.
We love this town to walk, eat and relax in what more can I say, but that this place is for the people who what to be pampered,,,,

Spotless house keeping. Very comfortable bed. We loved the special wine feature because of our anniversary. The best location. Excellent breakfast by a gourmet cook. Quiet rooms. Great location. Excellent help on special events. The best!
