Dennen's is a great place to get away on the Mendocino Coast. The rooms are neatly furnished with turn-of-the-century decor. We stayed in one with a cozy fireplace, jacuzzi and ocean view. The beds are very comfortable with feather pillows and electric blankets. The rooms are well insulated so we didn't need to use the electric blanket. Jo and Fred have done an excellent job upgrading this beautiful nineteenth century farmhouse on the east side of Hwy 1 about a half mile south of Little River, a couple of miles south of the town of Mendocino. It is a peaceful getaway. There are no TVs, or phones in the room and no cell phone reception. They do have WiFi which is quite fast, which we used to check restaurants in the area. Fred delivers breakfast each morning to your room. They always ask about food allergies and preferences. My wife and I enjoy good food and coffee and were not disappointed with the delicious gourmet breakfast delivered between 8:30 and 9:30AM. The Innkeepers are not intrusive but respond quickly to any special request or need. My wife likes a very warm bathroom in the morning, so they brought an extra heater for the bathroom. We have not stayed in a lot of B & Bs up there so we don't have a lot with which to compare Dennen's. There are lots of books about the local area available in the registration area. This is quickly becoming one of our favorite destinations set in a truly amazing natural land and seascape. We enjoyed great dinners at Albion River Inn and the Little River Restaurant. The Mendocino Hotel has reasonable lunches as does the North Coast Brewing Company in nearby Ft. Bragg.
