Stay in the Village and walk everywhere. The Blair House is world famous as the home of Jessica Fletcher, the iconic character played by Angela Landsbury in Murder She Wrote. Closed for five years, Blair House reopened in 2023 after being completely remodeled and has had stellar reviews ever since. With only four guest rooms and in one family’s ownership since 1985, it’s like staying in a friend’s cozy home filled with heirloom antiques. Built in 1888 from old growth Redwood and Douglas Fir, it was described in the Mendocino Beacon as the “finest house on the North Coast.” Blair House is filled with romantic charm, wonderful high ceilings and unique historic details. It cheerfully decorated with botanical prints, wallpapers and antiques.
The original first floor double parlor is a voluminous suite. Most rooms have private or half bath. Private and cozy Blair Cottage, with its massive plank floors, was part of the horse barn— it has a quaint kitchenette, and allows for pets. High speed intranet is free, but rooms have books instead televisions. It’s a short walk from Blair House Inn to anywhere in the village and the Headlands Park.
