We pulled into their parking lot late in the evening. It was dark and all we could see was their well-lit and very welcoming sign out front. And, a welcome sight it was. We were warmly greeted by a cheerful Mary Jo at the front desk and efficiently checked-in. She also recommended the Mendocino Hotel at the bottom of the hill for a evening drink and a bite to eat. It was a perfect recommendation. By the time we returned, we were ready to call it a day and comfortably turned in. The rooms are well appointed with comfortable beds, adequate lighting and in-room coffee maker in a cozy decor. The rooms are easily accessible and only a short walk from both the parking area as well as the main building, where a lounge and breakfast room are located. But the real gem of the area is the access to the coastline. The next morning, a brisk walk along the cliffs by the ocean was an envigorating and spectacular way to start our day - the view is magnificent...don't miss it. This darling little hideaway of a town was the backdrop for the well-known TV show, "Murder She Wrote" lending the scenery for Cabot Cove. We found the townspeople very amiable and accommodating and hated to leave. Don't miss their well-stocked general market...it has everything you'd need and a pleasure at which to shop! Our one night stay was just a tease and we vowed we'd come back.
