I know – you come to Mendocino for the sea but some of the best finds are not right on the water. (and a short hike across the road brings you to some great vistas). This hotel is a great value – in one place, you have a small inn, a spa, a restaurant, a wine-tasting bar and more. For cat lovers, Marco the cat will cuddle with you and even allows people to pick him up. We may be the only ones, but we go for walks with him.
The rooms are comfortable and well furnished with real working fireplaces – this is becoming harder to find up here. Located close to everything, you can simply stay here for your vacation or quickly jaunt around to Mendocino or Ft. Bragg. The people are terrific here – you feel like you are a VIP! Make sure you ask the concierge, Nelson, for tips. He’s been in the area forever and is a pro at his job.
