My boyfriend and I booked the MacCallum House six months ago through a Travelzoo deal. Of course now, I see the deal everywhere--$299 for two nights with free breakfast and a nightly $14 credit. This was my first trip to the Mendocino area.
The B&B was just as it is pictured. We booked our room months after we bought the deal and that is my only regret as we didn't get the room (#33) that we really wanted.
That said, the suite we had, the Morning Glory, was very lovely, spacious and comfortable. It was off campus (about 5 blocks up the street) and that was fine. We walked back and forth with no issues. Our building was next door to a cemetery, so if that stuff bothers you, you may want to ask for a different room. There is a complimentary small bottle of wine in the room as well as a Kruig coffee maker with a small selection of coffee and teas.
The bathroom was very large (wheelchair accessible) and had some really nice smelling lotion and shampoos. There is also a living space with a table and chairs, and a love seat across from a fireplace and large flatscreen TV.
We had a small balcony with a table and chairs and access to the garden.
The main building was very pretty and had well manicured gardens surrounding it including a grassy area with a croquet game set up.
We used our $14 daily credit to sit by the roaring fire in the bar, which was very charming. They have a specialty list of drinks (even one called Honey Boo Boo), but we chose to have champagne each night as we were celebrating my boyfriends birthday. There is a nice lounge area around the fire with an eclectic collection of old couches and furniture.
Our first night we had dinner a few miles south of town at Wild Fish. I highly recommend a visit to this new and delicious restaurant. I would have gone there again our second night, but we were late getting to dinner after enjoying the sunset and dinner time seems to end at 8:30 in this town. We ate the the MacCallum House restaurant the second night. They were very kind to allow us to dine there with only 30 minutes of time left. We got there at 8. My dinner was excellent; petrale sole, yam gnocchi, and spaghetti squash with kale.
The complimentary breakfast was also very good. I had the red plate special both mornings, 2 eggs, bacon, potatoes, fruit and toast. They make a homemade pear jam that was eaten with a spoon it was so tasty! My BF had the banana pancakes both days with pecan butter and maple syrup with a full sliced banana on top. If you really want to indulge, you have an option to get their homemade vanilla ice cream on top.
We would stay here again if ever visiting the Mendocino coast. It was beautiful, extremely relaxing and very romantic.
