We took a nine day trip from San Francisco to Mendocino and on to Sonoma. We stayed at the Palomar in SF which was great and other fine places, but Glendeven was by far the best place we stayed (and also one of the less expensive with their 3 day discount offered at the time). Glendeven struck the perfect balance of service and privacy. The staff who were kind and engaging offered help to the extent needed. Most outstanding was the beauty of the grounds, the care given to the details (the breakfasts are perfect), the fireplace in the room - ready to go each night and more wood available at all times right in and outside the room, insanely soft sheets, the wine bar[n] with great wines and knowledgeable people, llamas and chickens (and feed if you are so inclined) the setting and on and on and on! This is not a typical B & B with a shared space - it is very private. If you can't relax here, then you really can't relax! Although some complained about the ocean view not being more like ocean front, the long views over the meadows are truly amazing - we loved the serenity. We were in the room called East Farmington, apparently smaller than others, but it was a large room with a large bathroom and fireplace plus it has a small porch overlooking the gardens to the sea! Breakfast there each morning was the perfect way to start the day. If I had to find a complaint about Glendeven it would be only that I would have liked coffee available earlier in the morning and that the breakfast which was delivered at 9 was a bit late. But that just made us slow down a bit - not a bad thing. Stay here, it's really lovely. We hope to be back!
