“A City Girl Loved The Farmhouse!”
Reviewed 23 August 2013 via mobile

After the long and winding road trip out to Mendocino, The Farmhouse was a welcomed sight! Nestled in the beautiful trees this B&B had it all. We were greeted at the door by the owner,Margie, who was very pleasant and she got us settled right away. Our room was charming. It was not covered in grandmas old wall paper but instead has a comtempary country feel to it. The bathroom was huge and well stocked. The little porch was nice to relax on and read a book while listening to all the birds and wind rustling in the trees. The king bed was so comfortable. I loved how it was built in with reading lamps on each side and also had place to plug in your cell phone and put you book and glasses next to the bed.
We were glad the breakfast was not served at the crack of dawn because we slept so soundly and did not have to rush. We were enticed to breakfast with the wonderful aromas drifting into our room. I think the gal who made and served our delicious breakfast was Bessie and she was a delight! She was so informative about the area and gave us some good ideas about what to do and see. She had our table set in a darling window area looking out to the beautiful garden as she served the yummy breakfast she had just made. There was plenty of great coffee and fresh squeezed OJ and she offered seconds on the orange pancakes but we were too full! The one thing I would have liked is a smaller amount of pancakes and either an egg or fruit to go with the breakfast.
After breakfast we took a walk around the lovely gardens and meadow area and Bessie let us peak into the two rooms in the barn. The were awesome. When we return we will book one of the barn rooms with a fireplace and both of those rooms have private baths.
Sadly we had to leave the Farmhouse after only one night. We do plan on returning and spending a few nights there. It is really a wonderful retreat from the busy life's we all live!

Very nice propriety hidden in the woods right before Mendocino. Easy to find following the instructions on the web although can be a little difficult in the night time. Lovely outdoors. Rooms are large and comfortable. Only 1 room (the biggest - John) has the bathroom remote on the corridor and not in -suite. Not a gourmet, fancy breakfast but a basic, very good one served in the living room of the house. Plenty of places to stay - inside or outside with a group of friends. Margie is not a chatty person but if you find common points of interest she warms up. My husband enjoyed talking with her about their interest in Brazilian bosanova....the music she played in the background.

Enjoyed staying here. The location is removed from Mendocino proper allowing for a quiet and serene stay in a lovely B&B immersed in a mature redwood grove. However, the house is close enough to downtown to enjoy the scene and attractions. Convenient to Russian Gulch and other local state parks. Margie is a great host and the home is lovingly decorated and well maintained. Liked that the breakfast is served on individual tables, a private and intimate experience, nice for romantic couples getaway.

Room Tip: Lower priced rooms have a queen bed. We don't mind, and the host is very clear on what is on of...

My parents were in the Pine room and my husband and I were in Cedar, there really are not enough words. In short this is the perfect oasis, you can roam the open spaces, read under the redwoods or take a short jaunt from the private road to the ocean and restaurants in Mendocino or Fort Bragg.

The rooms with real fireplaces and plenty of privacy allowed for the perfect environment for our little family get together. Beside very comfortable beds, plenty of pillows and spaces to sit outdoors to read or visit we got to play with the family dogs who love to visit as well as listen to the chickens (which are not as loud as you would think).

My parents enjoyed a wonderful and filling breakfast made by Margie who was welcoming and accommodating. So I am confused by other reviewers that have stated that she was otherwise. Perhaps they have not considered that she has a business to run and while visiting is nice, that there re other guests as well as chores to be tended to. We were treated great and had a wonderful conversation after breakfast.

If there was one thing I would change if I could it would be for a brighter reading light in the Cedar room for late night reading. There is only one chair in this room, but it has a wonderful window seat with pillows that allow you to lay back, relax and take in the views. This comment about lighting should not take away from the primary reason for coming to the Mendocino Farmhouse which is set in the middle of a soaring redwood forest, meadows and a pond: it is incredibly peaceful and beautiful.
peaceful and beautiful.

Room Tip: We love the cedar and pine, they are very quiet and separate from the main house. This was our seco...

Loved our farmhouse room and bath. Garden, flowers, forest very restful and cool. Surrounded by redwoods, beach 5 minute drive. Tiny, quaint town right on the ocean. The town folks were warm and welcoming. The cook was inviting and made us feel like new friends. Inside house was very cozy, charming, and decorated with care. BUT..
The owner, my husband and I felt like we were intruders. We have a service dog and the first things she said was "did we have a dog crate and did we bring poop baggies." Our second morning the owner served us and was cold and curt. I had to adjust my attitude so as not to let this ruin my whole vacation experience in Mendocino, CA

Room Tip: Loved the separate barnhouse room. Lovely gardens, wandering chickens, deer, and nature. Plus was...

Awesome! My friends and I wanted a girl's getaway for the weekend. We are so happy we picked this B&B because Margie is so great! She treated us like family in a low key way making sure we were comfortable and satisfied. The grounds are just beautiful with the pond and Redwood tree groves. Breakfast was also great with fresh eggs and homemade jams. The rooms are quiet and very comfortable. My friends and I will be back for sure. Thanks Margie!

The Mendocino Farmhouse is surrounded by lawns, private garden spaces, a small pond and towering redwoods. There is a sense of peace and tranquility about the place which encourages deep relaxation. It is only 1.5 miles from Mendocino village and the coast or less than a 5 minute drive. Breakfasts were delicious, our host friendly, rooms were clean and very attractive. We stayed three nights. It was less expensive than many other B and B's that we considered staying out but we could not have asked for more. I would return in a heartbeat.
