Glendeven Inn has become a tradition for us - and I feel spoiled just saying that. My wife and I stayed in the Garret room (we've also stayed in the Bay View room) on this most recent visit for a couple of nights and I wish it had been longer. It's one of the highlights of our trip from Portland to San Francisco. All the little things that contribute to the wonderful experience are so well done. This time we got to feed the llamas, which was REALLY cool. John is a GREAT owner/host, and his staff is also great. Couldn't be more hospitable and responsive and friendly. The wine bar(n) also adds to the experience. First of all, the wines are local and it's a great selection. And you can buy the bottles right there if you like them, no need to go to the wineries (many of which are right down route 128, we stopped at a couple of them ourselves on the way out). The second night we had a brussels sprouts dish as the small plate served with the wines. And we usually end up having a nice conversation with other guests. This place does such a great job of being a terrific bed and breakfast but without being intrusive or stuffy or all too rabbits-in-dresses. Then there are the delicious breakfasts. And the chickens. And Jon running his dog in the morning. Honestly, I don't know if I'd even stay in the Mendocino area if it weren't for this place. It is truly a destination in and of itself and our vacation would not be nearly as memorable without it. It adds so much to the trip. I also think the place is a good value, too. Boy, do you get a lot for your money. I HIGHLY recommend the Glendeven. If you're staying in the Mendocino area, you are crazy if you don't stay here. Now sure I haven't stayed everywhere else in the area but I talk to other people and I'm telling you, just stay here, you will not regret it.
