My husband's birthday is on July 4 and I would like him on a relaxed vacation away from his work-infested laptop-infused life. We've lived in San Jose for seven years but have never been up to Mendocino/Fort Bragg and from what I've seen and read about these places, it seems like the perfect mini-vacation I have in mind.
I sent out enquiries to various B&B's and checked various hotels as well and the only two that will accommodate us for two nights (instead of three) are the Mendocino Farmhouse Inn and the Atrium in Fort Bragg. Both seem to have great reviews and essentially the same prices but I don't know anything about the area to make that decision. We basically like to sleep tight (that's why the idea of a fog horn in Bodega Bay bothers me) and would prefer avoiding anything that has railway tracks nearby, traffic or creaky floors. I need to say yes to one of them by the end of the day today, else the one room they have will also be grabbed.
Many thanks for your insights, in advance.
Looking forward to your expert advice,
