“A wonderfully relaxing spot on the north coast”
Reviewed 26 February 2009

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.

We've only stayed in a few B&B, as we prefer 4-star hotels, however, this is our favorite B&B we've ever stayed at. It was amazing to see how much wildlife surrounded this property. They have apple trees in the front of their lawn where the deer will go and feed and let people watch.

We stayed in their Carriage room for 3 nights. The room was large, comfortable and had lots of country charm. It had a cozy wood fireplace that we used every night. The beds were super comfy and warm. They provided fluffy, clean towels every day. The breakfasts were filling and delicious and I loved how they brought breakfast to our room at the requested time every morning. The owners seemed very attentive to their guests.

The only downside was the Carriage room's bathroom was a bit small (only had a shower stall) and the room is probably the least private. You could see and hear people coming and going from behind and in front of the room. Although, they have several other rooms that you could choose from.

Overall, wonderful stay!!!

Very private and very special. Every morning a deer and her doe breakfasted off the apple trees in the front yard while we ate gourmet breakfasts brought to our room.
The room itself was cozy and charming, with an easy-to-use wood burning fireplace (the iron kind), which we used every chance we could get.
The bed was - and I'm not exaggerating - the most comfortable my wife and I have ever been in in our lives.
The innkeepers couldn't have been more helpful, and got us reservations on a crowded weekend that we would not have been able to get ourselves.
And the inn itself - pretty as a picture, which explains why the legendary Thomas Kincaid painted it years ago.
The location, 5 minutes down the road from Mendocino, was just close enough and just far enough away.
The inn is a bargain at the price, but would be worth going to if it cost 50% more. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.

My wife and I stayed at the Farmhouse for our first time and loved everything about it. The innkeepers, Fred and Jo, were very nice and made our stay very comfortable. We stayed in the Victorian Suite, which I would recommend to anyone. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and have never had a bed as good as the one we had at the Farmhouse. The homemade breakfast was also very good and something to look forward to in the morning. I would suggest having dinner at the Albion River Inn - its right by the ocean and has great food.

Can't wait to go back!

We are an elderly couple visiting the Mendocino area together for the first time. We stayed one night at the Victorian Farmhouse and were delighted with both the hospitality, the breakfast, and the accomodations overall. We are happy to recommend this fine bed-and-breakfast establishment.

Wow! We love staying at Dennen's Victorian Farmhouse, this is such a special place. The hospitality is amazing and the breakfast is scrumptious. I love that they bring the breakfast right to your room. Each room is very unique and I can't wait to try them all out! The grounds are beautiful and peaceful. This is such a wonderful place to stay and to get away from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. We will definitely be returning again and again.

Jo & Fred, the innkeepers at Dennen's Victorian Farmhouse were hospitable, kind, and warmhearted! They made sure that my friend & I were comfortable and relaxed for our two day stay! They made reservations for us at different restaurants in the area, gave us ideas, tips, and directions to various beaches to visit nearby, to whale watch, ( we saw tons of whales, very exciting!), collect shells, or just take long walks to enjoy the sunshine. Jo & Fred also made and delivered the most delicious, homemade breakfast to our door each morning! Our room was quiet and comfortable, with a bed that was like a little piece of heaven. (We slept as if we were on clouds in the sky!) We left Dennen's Victorian Farmhouse well rested and in a peaceful state of bliss! We cannot wait to go back for another weekend soon! J. Hotter
