Stayed in the Garden Cottage for a night for our anniversary road trip. Definitely wished we had planned to stay longer. It's a stand alone cottage, set a bit more back on the property, providing a bit more privacy.. It's not very impressive from the outside, but once we got in we were surprisingly pleased! We were greeted with a...

Very pet friendly Inn with lovely staff. Every attention to detail has been paid to this little treasure on the Mendo Coast. Each cottage has regulated temperature controls, fireplace, self contained kitchen, huge bed and very clean bathrooms with all the amenities. On check-in, our puppy received some treats, a food bowl, frisbee, towel for the beach and a bed...

We have stayed in a well-equipped room on several occasions. Pt Cabrillo, at the front of the property. 2 dogs loved it. Nice little deck for them to watch the critters frolic. Room is very clean, nice bedding and towels. Coffee pot, small fridge and microwave. Lots of places to walk on the property and wonderful hikes in many directions....

We spent two nights in the beautifully refurbished Buckhorn Cove room and had a great time. Our thoughtful hosts had provided wine form my favorite winery (Navarro) and the the balcony (with great ocean view) was the perfect environment to enjoy it. We had visited with previous pets several times and always liked the place but it has gotten even...

We stayed in the Water Tower cottage. It was totally charming. You get this cute little cottage inside it's own courtyard, next to an old water tower that now houses a private hot tub and then you you climb up the spiral stair case for a commanding view of the ocean. It was a great place to relax and unwind...

I went here for a weekend with my two dogs. I stayed here a couple of years ago but would absolutely go back! The had a wonderful happy hour with wine and snacks and great accommodations for the pups. The beach was a bit of a hike down to but worth it. I really appreciated the isolation of the location...

We stayed at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek this past weekend for my 30th birthday. They offered a rate for birthdays which was very convenient. The property is beautiful, with views of the pacific from basically anywhere you are. We stayed in the Captains Watch with our dog. It was beautiful, the bed was comfortable. The room was spacious, and...

My husband & I booked the Cypress Cottage via Airbnb. It was advertised there as having an ocean view. There was definitely no view from this cabin. It was a very cute cottage, nicely decorated. There was a propane fireplace very cozy. The bathroom tub was nice since I love a bath especially when traveling. The coffee provided in room...

We decided to head up from the bay area to Mendocino for a long weekend away. We'd never been and were trying to find a place to stay that wasn't a typical hotel. Having stayed at many large resorts and established hotel chains, we decided to give the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek a shot, and we're very glad we did....
