We stayed in "The Shed" room during Easter weekend. We selected this room because we have a 15-month old whose noise we wanted to shield from the other guests as much as possible; The Shed is unattached to the other buildings.
The room was nicer than we expected, perhaps because I was expecting hammers and other tools to be hanging from the walls. Instead, there were sand dollars and rustic paintings, along with some shabby chic furnishings.
This was our second time staying in Mendocino, our first being at Alegria Inn a few years ago (what is now the Raku House part). Not remembering the town layout that well, I was a little concerned about proximity to Big River Beach, but this was a non-issue. (Do you want a 2-minute walk or a 4-minute walk to the trailhead?)
Sea Gull actually has a more favorable proximity to the town amenities - literally steps from Mendocino Cafe, and just a few more to some of the other places we walked to: Mendo Burger, GoodLife Cafe, Frankie's Pizza and Ice Cream Parlor, Beaujolais and the grocery store.
Jim and Ayla were gracious and friendly hosts. They served up delicious breakfasts and let us keep our son's milk and food in their office fridge.
Sea Gull Inn will be a part of our new Mendocino memories. Highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Welcome to Mendocino CA and Sea Gull Inn, one of the original B&B Inns on the scenic Northern California Coast. The house was built in 1878. A giant Holly tree shades the front porch. The private garden has several secluded sitting areas. Meticulously maintained, the inn and its grounds are very much a part of Mendocino's charm. All bed and breakfast lodging guest rooms have private baths and some have views of the ocean. ... more less
