We would not have heard of this place except for Groupon, but I am so glad we did. It is a charming old place that used to be a stagecoach inn. It is a few minutes off the coast highway in a quiet rural area. We stayed in the lovely Hawthorne suite--2 rooms with a recently redone bathroom. It was very comfortable and private, and had a great fireplace. Breakfasts were excellent, and Chris was helpful with restaurant suggestions for dinner. The rural neighborhood is excellent for walking. A rugged beach is within close driving distance, and Mendocino is about 10 or 15 minutes away. We spent time working on a puzzle in the game room and watching the quail and ducks that live on the property. We will return.
