The 1st night of our road trip from San Francisco to Seattle. We booked on recommendations from Trip Advisor and what a wonderful start to the trip. We stayed in the Carriage House (Room 10). The room was well appointed with attractive furnishings. The Inn and Grounds were beautiful and the private hot tub a joy after driving . We booked into the restaurant in the evening and it had a lovely atmosphere. The menu was varied and the wine list extensive. The food was well presented and the staff attentive. The Inn was extremely well situated near to the centre of Mendocino with easy parking. The log burning stove was easy to light and made our room very cosy on the only rainy day of the 2 week trip.
The Verandah where we were served breakfast was light and had views of the sea. We had a very relaxed breakfast and there was a wide choice of local food cooked to order. Again the staff were very friendly and attentive.
The only 'but' was beyond the Inn's control however it might be worth noting - we stayed on a Thursday and had a rude awakening at 6 a.m. with what we think was a rubbish truck outside the property, the noise went on for some 20 minutes. As the Carriage House is at the top of the series of cottages and by the road it was particularly strident. However this did not detract from the stay - indeed we got in the hot tub and then had a very pleasant walk through the village which is a beautiful setting with the historic houses and the coast.
It was a brief but very enjoyable stay.
