We stayed at Glendeven for four days in between hiking and camping in Yosemite and in the Redwoods, so it was a luxurious interlude between periods of roughing it. We could not have chosen a better place for this purpose. The setting and accommodations were lovely and the service was superb. We found a bottle of champagne chilling in our room when we arrived, and each morning a gourmet breakfast was delivered to our room, complete with fresh flowers. Every detail was taken care of--early morning coffee and newspaper, late afternoon wine and starters, CDs in the room, luxurious bedding, a great view of the llama pasture. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, helping us find a laundromat, hiking trails, wineries and vegetarian restaurants. We took some lovely long and short walks in the woods and along the beach in nearby Van Damme State Park, and the town of Mendocino has interesting shops, including two bookstores, in addition to wonderful restaurants. One of our best eating experiences was Glendeven's own farm-to-table evening meal, served across the road from us. John hosted the dinner, our waiter was personable and interesting, and the chef himself came out to meet us before dessert. I really can't say enough good things about this B & B. Location, decor, personnel, and grounds were all top-notch. I especially liked watching the llamas and chickens from our windows in the Garrett. Glendeven is a place I hope to return to someday.
