“Great location great views”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

We loved everything about this inn. The location was great, the room marvelous, and the view from breakfast incredible. Go here for a relaxed, atmosphere with friendly,knowledgable innkeepers. We stayed in the garnet room and loved the private deck with a view of the ocean. Every night we sat on the deck with glasses of the free Sherry and enjoyed a quiet night cap.

Room Tip: Worth it to get a room with a view of the ocean.

I don't really know where to start as the expierence was Absolutely Amazing. Upon arriving to Agate Cove the grounds were as beautiful as any picture ever taken for their website. The grounds were lush and well manicured. The view from most anywhere on the grounds was breath taking. From the beautiful trees, to the rock formations and the never ending ocean. At check in we were greated by both the Inn Keepers Rodger and Lorraine. Two wonderful people that made you feel warm and very pleasnt about your decision to stay with them at Agate Cove. We were given a brief tour of the Inn and then sent to our room (Amber) only to realize that the view was that of the website and their post cards. The room was SPOTLESS and was everything that the website had shared and more. The breakfasts were spectacular and prepared fresh daily. They gave you that feeling that mom had just made breakfast just for you, from the fresh baked scones, fresh fruit and a wonderful variety of entrees from Gingrbread Pancakes to Spinach Quiche. And the view from the dinning room is is Gorgeous. And lets not forget to mention "Nava" the very friendly Border Collie that is the Inn Keepers pet. An experience that I'm so glad my lady and I were able to enjoy. Our first B&B experience but we can't wait to return to Agate Cove.....Just Amazing Experience!!!......06/2013 .....Ernie M.

Room Tip: AMBER..is their Postcard and website View!!

Green Features: Wonderful as the actively envloved in recycling. I saw the staff taking their time on all aspects of claening and sanitizing of the rooms. I feel that there is an overall concern and consideration for the area and the enviorment by all memebers of Agate Cove.

Fabulous B&B!! The owners Roger & Lorraine were great. Friendly, extremely clean, beautiful rooms, beautiful views, breakfasts to die for! All breakfasts are home made, and the scones and blueberry bread pudding are wonderful. Gorgeous view of Agate Cove from the dining room window and after our horseback riding adventure, enjoyed the spa on the front lawn overlooking the cove. Each room has a different theme and look exactly as they do on the web site. Roger and Lorraine gave us tips on things to do as well as restaurants in Mendocino and the surrounding areas. Beautiful gardens surround the main house and all the rooms. If you haven't been to Agate Cove Inn-don't wait-book as soon as possible!!

Room Tip: Choose what fits your style from the web site. All rooms seem quiet and the beds are heavenly. The...

Oh Christi, thank you for that great review! We are glad you liked the blueberry bread pudding (we served that today) and our legendary scones. Horseback riding on the Mendocino coast is such a great experience. The trails through the Redwoods then out to the ocean are like no other destination. So glad you have a great trip.

Very nice B&B. The room was great but it is the view that is spectacular. Could see the ocean while laying in bed! The view from breakfast was even more spectacular. Breakfast was good. Not the friendliest owners I have ever seen but certainly more than adequate. Check out their website - one of the best I have seen. Pricey but so is everything else in Mendocino.

Room Tip: Website has 360 degree views of all rooms.

Thank you Bill for taking the time to review our inn and for awarding us a rating of *5*! It means a great deal when we are reviewed by seasoned travelers like yourself.
We think that we have incredible views as well. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and like our breakfast. We do our best to arrange the rooms so that an ocean view can be seen from the bed. We also enjoyed reading your other reviews, especially the Headlands State Park and Russian Gulch. We know this information is so helpful to other guests. We look forward to your next visit with us.

We stayed for three nights at the Agate Cove last week, chosen as a result of the reviews on tripsadviser and for the amazing view. The owners, Roger and Larainne were away on vacation, but we were looked after marvellously by Innkeeper Thayes and her sister Dawn, two delightful and friendly ladies.

Our accommodation (Obsidian) was extremely comfortable, the bed amazingly so, possibly the best I have ever slept in and that combined with very soft cotton sheets made for a wonderful nights sleep. That was followed by lovely breakfasts in a dining room that had huge picture windows overlooking the sea. I am running out of superlatives, but think you get the message!!

Can highly recommend.

Room Tip: Fabulous views from Obsidian and Emerald, but if you look at the website it shows exactly what view...

Thank you for reviewing us on Trip Advisor. We are sorry that we were away during your stay because we would have enjoyed meeting you. We hope to meet you on a future trip. We know that Thayes and Dawn, our interim innkeepers took good care of you in our absence. They are both excellent in the kitchen and love people! The Obsidian cottage is one of my favorites as well. I love the soft beach colors in that room. The painting above the fireplace (a birthday gift from Roger) is what inspired that rooms decor. Thank you again for taking the time to review us. We appreciate the kind comments.

We spent 4 nites at the Agate Cove in Mendocino and didn't want to leave. The property overooks the ocean and the views are just fabulous. It's a small B&B and each cottage is decorated with a different theme. We stayed in the Amber cottage which had a jetted tub, separate shower, old fashion pot belly fireplace and a private deck with a direct view to the ocean. The room was clean, bed very comfortable and there was no noise from the street. Breakfast was always wonderful. The breakfast room has floor to ceiling windows with fabulous views of the pacific. We also liked that couples could sit by themselves at quaint tables for breakfast making it more intimate versus the long dining room tables that most B&B's have. We looked at several properties for future trips and none compared to Agate Cove Inn. We will definitely be returning.

We were hoping that someone would write about our newly designed breakfast room. Thank you for commenting on that. When we decided to expand the breakfast room and purchase new furniture for it, we thought about what we would like as travelers. We felt that quaint tables for two where both people could face the ocean and giant windows taking in the breathtaking view, were what was needed. We have also kept tables for 4 and the table that seats up to 8 for those special situations when that is called for. Yes, the Amber cottage is a popular cottage. We are so glad you enjoyed it as well. We are blessed to have this spectacular location and are only to happy to be able to share it with others.

My wife and I just returned from a week long stay at Agate Cove Inn. Our experience was wonderful. Roger and Laraine were a wonderful host and hostess. Laraine and I exchanged recipes and she made my recipe for breakfast one morning. The breakfast room is a beautiful room overlooking the ocean with sweeping views of the coast, it is also a great place to enjoy a glass or two of your favorite vino. Our room was nicely appointed with all the comforts of home, in fact, after returning from our day trips it felt like we were returning home. We will be back! Thanks for a great stay.

Hi John and Coral, We are so happy to have met you and our friendship has been solidified with the recipe exchange! Thank you for your kind words, your great company and the tip about the Raspberry Chipotle sauce that has become a fast favorite around here. It was delightful to have you here for a full week. We look forward to having you as guests in the future.
