“Quiet romantic get a way”
Reviewed June 19, 2005

We just returned from a three night stay at this lovely place. The front garden with its ocean view was so beautiful. The Innkeepers were very hospitable and served an absolutely wonderful breakfast to our room each morning. We definitely would stay here again and felt it was the nicest place in Mendocino.

We spent three wonderful nights in the Strauss suite last week. Denise and Mitch are not only fabulous hosts but they can cook and present a breakfast that is off the charts. After four days in the Napa Valley, this picturesque little town was the perfect spot to slow down and relax. With the Pacific outside our window, excellent restaurants, art galleries and shops, Mendocino is simply unforgettable.

Every year we look forward to our stay at the Headlands Inn. Things we love about it: the charm and comfort (great beds!, great views!), the fabulous food, the privacy and last but not least the warm hospitality of innkeepers Denise and Mitch. We were prepared for a rainy, but cozy two nights by the fireplace or windowseat, but were rewarded with bright sunshine, flowers everywhere..in the gardens and wild on the headlands. A delicious breakfast is delivered to your door each morning with plenty of hot coffee and the SF newspaper. Denise and Mitch are happy to make dinner reservations if you like at any one of the many wonderful restaurants in Mendocino or the surrounding area. No need to get into your car at all, unless you want to visit the Botannical Gardens in Ft. Bragg (spectacular!) In the late afternoon, tea, sherry and cookies are set out to be enjoyed before getting ready for dinner. Altho we enjoy very much visiting with Denise and Mitch, one could be there, if desired, with minimal contact with anyone else..a truly peaceful way to really get away.(no TV or Internet)
Our favorite room is the Barry Room, but all the other rooms are unique and delightful and well maintained. We highly recommend this B&B.

Another delightful stay for us at the Headlands Inn in Mendocino.
At first we were afraid we had come during a rainy period, to this historical little town by the sea. Then we realized that rain or shine it made little difference to us. If it is rainy, we watch the rain through our window, light the fire in the fireplace, get out a good book and just relax.
Looking down at the English garden from our room is a window on the world of birds, birdbaths, green lawn and flowers.
If the sun in shining, there are so many places to see, you will probably run out of time before you run out of places.
The very tasty breakfast, along with flowers and a daily paper that is delivered to your room every morning is just the beginning of a perfect day.
Owners Denise and Mitch greeted us like old friends, and made us feel more than welcome. Instead of visitors you are made to feel like part of their family.
