“Love this place!”
Reviewed December 29, 2004

Not chi-chi, but terribly comfortable and the friendliest B&B in Mendocino. Everything has a lived in, warm, casual appeal. Most rooms have ocean views, all are a stroll down a private path to a secluded beach, and in close walking distance to Mendocino's great cafes and shops. Great breakfast too -- Elaine is an excellent and inventive cook. Not only do owners Eric and Elaine and their staff feed you and advise you on the sights, they leave you a bottle of good wine (not the cheap stuff!) and chocolates and multiple varieties of organic teas and coffees. Your choice of down or nonallergenic bedding, and lovely latex mattresses that are perfect for your back.

My husband and I just returned from our second trip to Mendocino this year. We spotted the Cove Cottage on a walk in April and booked it then. It sits on the edge of the property overlooking the ocean and beach below. There is a small path that leads to the water from the back porch. We also loved the hot tub, as we sat beneath the stars enjoying the roar of the ocean. The cottage itself was cozy- bamboo floors, Asian art, an old wood-burning stove, microwave, fridge, coffee maker and a couple bottles of local wine. Breakfasts were delicious- fresh ingredients, charming ocean view dining room. Owners Eric and Elaine were wonderful. The other guests whom we met were also pleased with their rooms and the ambience of the property. It ranks in my top 3 all-time romantic rooms. We will return here and it will be often!

Spent four nights in September at the "Farm" rental which is located two blocks from the Inn. Found the unit to be much larger than those at the Inn, which was great for an extended stay. Breakfast was not included, but the unit has a full kitchen. The staff at the Inn couldn't be more helpful and always pleasant. Would highly recommend this unit for a great value on a longer stay in beautiful Mendocino!

Just returned from a great couple of days in Mendocino where we stayed at Alegria. We couldn't have been happier with the owners' hospitality, the lovely (and very clean) room, and the unique and delicious breakfasts (a fantastic souffle and homemade coffee cake one morning, orange pancakes with orange maple syrup, along with chicken apple sausage the next). Our room (like pretty much all of them, it seems) had a terrific water view; the gardens are beautiful and every amenity has been thought of here. The location is terrific for Mendocino -- extremely walkable to beach, shops and restaurants while slightly set back off the road so you have a sense of privacy as well. Highly recommended!
