“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

First time visiting Mendocino area and couldn't have stayed at a better place. Sandy and Rebecca were very helpful and very nice. Our cottage, was super cute. Would definitely stay there again if I ever return to Mendocino area.

We were looking for a dog-friendly place along the Mendocino coast. We wanted to have our own "space" without a connecting door to another guest, and we wanted to be just close enough to Mendocino without being in town. VOILA!! Our cottage was perfection. Rustic charm, gorgeous views, clean, private deck. Our dogs were so happy to lay on the deck and watch the birds. Mendocino was a hop-skip away. The drive was lovely, and it was so nice to leave and come back to our little private slice of heaven. The front desk staff directed us to several great restaurants, and their in-house breakfast is delicious. Our only disappointment was waiting to order breakfast on our second day!! We missed out on day one. Bed was soft and cozy. Since they provide sheets for all the furniture, we were able to snuggle with our dogs each night. Highly recommend, and we're already booking our next visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, but don't overlook the garden view rooms in favor of an ocean view. T...

We loved our stay at the bed and breakfast. The staff are great. The owners left us a bottle of wine to celebrate our anniversary. The breakfast was delicious. The views are awesome. They have a private cove. The staff was great at suggesting places to eat and see. The cottage are clean and very cosy. Ours had a jet tub.

First time visiting the Mendocino area- we booked a long weekend at the Inn. The vibe was rustic and laidback but with all the amenities you could want.

Our cabin was perfect, with a small but full kitchen and a nice size deck. The cabins are old (the one we stayed in was originally a mill workers' cabin from the 1870's)- but they are recently remodeled/decorated, providing a nice mix of old and new. Breakfasts at Circa 62 were delicious and easily accommodated our paleo/gluten-free diet.

We were pleasantly surprised to see how centrally located the Inn was- close to hiking and beaches, just down the road from Mendocino, and several nice restaurants nearby. Staff and guests were friendly. And I had a great facial at the spa with Gabi. Overall, I would definitely stay at the Inn again and recommend it to friends.

Room Tip: Call and talk to an innkeeper to find out what room/cabin is best for you. They are very helpful.

First time stay and I selected is as the place for our stay based on reviews. A girlfriend of 35+ yrs was visiting from east coast and wanted to see the "big trees" in Redwood National Park. Mendocino was our midway point for a 2 day stay on the way back to San Jose. We stayed in Tansy cottage which was quaint and had a "living area" that allowed one to be up without disturbing the other person sleeping. On our trip down from the Redwoods, we decided we wanted massages and I placed a call to see if it was a possibility; Rebecca worked hard to arrange them for us the next day. The only negative is that breakfast, which has great choices and was very tasty, is the only meal served on the property. We had rain while there and after our late afternoon massages, we would have appreciated access to a meal without driving. As the property is about 3 miles south of Mendocino, we opted to eat our snacks rather than go into Mendocino for dinner.

Room Tip: Tansy cottage - great for two friends or a couple with a child. There was a queen bed and a single...

Even though we stayed only one night, we had such a good experience that we plan to return again for a longer stay. Breakfast was great. Walk to the beach was a little tricky but it was great little cove and so peaceful. Staff is very courteous and went beyond regular. One of us liked their oatmeal and wanted to buy more to take with us. They just gave us bag as compliments.

Stayed for the second time, our first being in January of this year and the second time, lest weekend. Checking in was quick and personable. We stayed in the See Cloud, which is a private cottage a short drive from the inn. The next time we stay, we will likely stay at the inn instead.We had a very small issue, which was really irrelevant; however, the point is, how quickly and efficiently it was handled. Roxanne not only immediately resolved the problem, but went above and beyond. We also dined for breakfast and I can absolutely state that it was the best breakfast I had on the Mendocino coast. I had the smoked salmon benedict and and an almond/apple pancake on the side. Both were better than I was hoping for. The rooms are very clean, the service perfect, the grounds beautiful. What more could a person ask for? oh yea, maybe the 375 ml bottle of white wine welcoming us back that was sitting in our room when we arrived!
