Looking to relax and get away from it all? The Mendocino Farmhouse does exactly that. We stayed in the Cedar Room, which is one of two rooms in the converted barn: it's incredibly cozy and perfect. Like a hunting lodge, small scale. The exposed stone fireplace, the private meadow and chairs: all wonderful. We slept so well, and enjoyed the room and seclusion.
As to Margie, she is exactly the type of innkeeper we love. Most B&B's try to smother you with cuteness and fussy attention, to the point of suffocation. Margie knows you are there to relax, and lets you do just that. When she knew we'd be late getting up there, she taped a note on the front door of the Farmhouse, welcoming us. She knew we were adults and could handle the rest. Breakfast? Aside from cooking fantastic pancakes and eggs (great sausages, too!), Margie made us comfortable and left us alone...as we were delighted to do.
This is the kind of place you want to go to truly relax. Know that you'll have a wonderful place to stay, great food, a host who's 20+ years of experience is put to good use to make sure you want for nothing, and incredible grounds and redwoods to soothe the soul.
