This is a truly unique location. Away from the town of Mendocino, in an isolated spot next to the lighthouse of Mendocino. Deer are walking around freely and at night it is just you, the lighthouse, the sea and the quietness. It is als a nice area to go for short walks or an early morning run.
I would definitely advise this B&B to others, however just beware if you ask for an exception. As we had decided to get married on the grounds of the property in a private ceremony with just us and the minister, we asked the caretaker if we could check in a bit earlier (around 1-2 pm instead of 3 pm) since we were arriving on the day of our wedding and wanted to refresh ourselves. However, the caretaker was rather uncooperative and formal when we contacted him before we arrived and told us we couldn't check in before 3 pm even after we explained our situation. We arrived early anyway and managed to check in early with another person who was there, so everything turned out all right. But this formal response did surprise me, especially considering the price you're paying for a stay.
