“How did this get to #3? Others must be Terrible!”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

As a well travelled couple we stayed here for 1 night as part of a California driving holiday. Sadly, we ended up wishing we hadn't - as we really wanted to like the place and recent reviews looked positive.

Location - Poor. You are right on Highway 1 - which stays busy all day and night too. Of course there is no sound proofing...so it's a noisy stay...I dont think there could be any room where this would not affect you.

Room - Poor. Really Really badly stained and dirty carpet throughout the place & in our room too. We like to take our shoes off in our room...and regretted it...just unpleasent. Bathroom was good size ..but lots of hair all over the floor and in the sink hole. Waste basket in here and in the bedroom had previous occupants rubbish still there. No curtains (just blinds) on the windows meant that when it got light....you woke up. Not good if you have just had a long drive the day before. Bed was comfortable though.

Breakfast - Is included in the price of the stay. Breakfast is at either 8.30 or 9.15am, and served up by the owner (who was friendly and obviously a good cook). Unfortunately all those guests choosing the 8.30 slot were waiting 35 minutes to be served anything, and some of them were in a rush to leave. No choice of breakfast at all - you got what was on offer that day. In our case that was orange juice, baked egg & toast and potato. Not to everyones taste - but no choice at all! What there was though was very nicely cooked. I enjoyed it.

Overall - You can see what someone was trying to do here...but it's all a bit hit & miss...really needs some money spending on the carpet and decor..a little more thought around breakfast options..curtains in your room and a good clean.

We arrived exhausted from driving all day. It was so nice to drive up, ring the door bell, and walk into a home-like environment. We stayed in the Summertime room and it was darling. As cliche as it may sound- it was like staying in a little doll house room. It was old-fashioned and comfortable. My only suggestion is for the owners to use pillow covers to protect the pillows and guests. Otherwise, breakfast was wonderful and our stay was very nice.

Stayed here for 1 night in the middle of a California road trip. Lisa was friendly and welcoming, the rooms were exactly as pictured and the location was great. An evening soak in the hot tub was an added bonus after a long day. Breakfast was wonderful- fresh fruit and more than enough terrific food. All at a very reasonable price. Stayed in the very front, first floor room and didn't have any problem with noise, but I can imagine if anyone was sitting on the porch at night we would have heard them.

Is it possible for a great experience to get better? Yes, it is! Our trip to Fort Bragg in April is destined to become an annual event, as is staying at the Country Inn Bed & Breakfast. The new innkeeper, Lisa, added warmth and humor to our, again, excellent stay at this most-affordable funky but spotlessly clean and cozy home away from home. Don't miss breakfast and ask Lisa to make you her roasted red potatoes with herbs picked fresh from the garden. Amazing. Feeling more familiar this time, we skipped the fancy dinner and found a local treasure just a couple blocks away at Piaci Pizza, a tiny friendly place serving the best pizza on this coast. We did go back this year for dinner at the wharf's Chapter and Moon. The owner/chef cleverly invented a fresh and delicious vegan gluten-free meal for fussy me but also fed my omnivorous husband very very well. A local raw food culinary school has a deli just up the road from Country Inn that offers wonderful choices for vegan and gluten-free meals. The Inn's location is perfect for a walk to Headland's Coffee or Glass Beach. So what if there is no television and only sporadic internet reception in Pomo Sunrise room? Walk a few blocks to the fabulous used bookstore and get something to read in the quiet comfort of the quilted queen bed after a soak in the hot tub. See you next April, Lisa!

We stayed at Country Inn in early/mid May - we were only planning to stay one night but ended up extending it to 5 nights. Lisa was really lovely, breakfast was delicious and our room was very homey. I don't know why people slag off Fort Bragg - we loved the town and the lovely eating/drinking options and the locals. It has such a nice feel to it. Highlights were pizza/beer at Piaci, breakfast at Headlands Coffeehouse, the great bartender at Welcome Inn (and cheap drinks!) and icecream at Cowlicks. We wanted to stay forever! Country Inn is walking distance to all those places - would definitely stay there again if we were to return.

We stayed here three nights and enjoyed it. The price was great, the location is good, and the accommodations were entirely adequate, even charming. We've had better breakfasts at B&Bs, but for the price they were fine and the coffee was decent. The hostess was pleasant and helpful. Try to get one of the rooms toward the rear of the house; they're quieter.

We weren't sure about this place because of all the mixed reviews, but we didn't find any better options in Fort Bragg. While the room, although dated, was fine and the breakfast was good, this is not your typical B&B experience. The hosts at most good B&B's make every effort to ensure their guests' comfort and foster a friendly environment for guest interaction. If this is important to you, go somewhere else. If you just need a bed and a hot breakfast the next morning, you should find the Country Inn acceptable.
