Headlands Inn Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 25 Mendocino B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2009

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful (albeit short) time at this B&B. We were later than we had hoped to be driving up from SF, but they were more than accomodating for our late check in. The breakfast was amazing!

This B&B is probably the most friendly and charming I've been to. We stayed in the Barry room, which has incredible amounts of natural light, and a cozy window seat to read on. The bed was very comfortable, and is tucked right under a window, which I really enjoyed. Our room also had a fireplace, which we used both nights - when we checked in and the next morning firewood and kindling were stacked in the fireplace so we just had to light a match to get the fire going. Similar touches are really what made this inn so incredible. There is a parlor on the second floor with games, water, wineglasses and corkscrews (being in wine country) and sherry that is available all the time. "Tea and Cookies" is also everyday from 4-7 pm and the cookies are wonderful. How relaxing to be able to go get a cup of tea, homemade cookies and read a book upstairs.

The breakfasts are AMAZING. There is no common dining room, so your breakfast is brought up to your room every morning on a large tray. They ask your beverage preferences when you check in, and if you'd like a newspaper as well. One morning we got a variation on huevos rancheros, with a side dish of fruit and yogurt, and the other we got stuffed french toast with grapefruit halves on the side. I LOVED it - how amazing to have such great food cheerfully delivered to you, so you can eat at your own pace and in your PJs.

I will definitely come back to this inn if I'm back in the Mendocino area.

My girl friends and I celebrated our 50th, 60th, 70th, birthdays here. We were spoiled and pampered. Wonderful breakfasts delivered to our rooms was only the beginning of our several days there. Denise assisted us with making reservations for a wonderful limosine tour of local wineries. We had wonderfult walks to the ocean front town and a wonderful time shoping at the many charming stores. The weather was perfect. I would come back again and again.

We arrived having driven from San Francisco to a very warm and friendly welcome from Denise. She quickly made us feel at home and explained where various restaurants were. We stayed in the Switzer room which was exactly as we had pictured it, and very comfortable.
Breakfast was awesome and we really enjoyed it, seating in the window seats in the sunshine. The Headlands Inn is very well situated in the village with plent y of parking beside the property. We will definitely stay here again when next in the area, and would have no reservation in recommending it.

We spent a night here on our way up the coast. The breakfast was the absolute highlight of the stay. The room was very nice, tough a little musty. The location in historic Mendocino is convenient to restaurants and downtown shopping.

This is our second visit to the Headlands Inn and feel the need to recommend to one and all. If it’s a serene, comfortable, friendly get away you’re looking for, look no further.

This immaculately kept Inn in the village of Mendocino is a destination to look forward to. The Inn is situated with glorious ocean views and within walking distance of any place in town.

Mitch and Denise’s hospitality will make you feel like one of the family. From the warm welcome and helping hands with your luggage to the delicious afternoon home baked cookies and the incredible room delivered breakfasts it all makes for an unforgettable stay.

Of the seven rooms available at the Inn, my wife’s favorite is the Strauss room. Spacious and airy with a king sized bed and wood burning fireplace it’s an ideal spot to be ensconced whilst you explore this beautiful coastline.

Memorable occasions are oftentimes a culmination of what seems at the time inconsequential things. Something quite unique for any B&B I’ve ever stayed at and one thing the Headlands shares with the Savoy and The Dorchester in London - your breakfast will be served on heirloom quality bone china from Staffordshire, England.

Go ahead; spoil yourself and someone else to…

So many warm and charming places to stay in Mendocino, and we"ve tried our fair share. So what brings us back to the Headlands Inn year after year. The obvious of course, beautiful views, grounds & charming rooms. The ( staff ) Denise, Mitch, Kellie & Jeffery make our decision to return year after year easy. If your looking for that I'll never stay any place else in Mendocino. Treat yourself, stay at the Headlands Inn.
