We hit the Avenue of the Giants early and it was like driving into a tunnel. Jst magnificent to see these 2000+ year old tree that have survived so much. Even the fallen ones are awesome to see. So thankfull for the foresight some of our predecessors had to save some of these wonders for us to enjoy. Hope we can preserve something for our grandkids instead of using everything ...
... is more apropos. Several have seating right on the water's edge; some inside, some outside. One has white tablecloth covered tables and is 4 stories above the river. Diners are sitting behind ceiling to floor glass looking straight out at our mast head fifty feet above us as we pass.
On the right, or starboard, it's all working businesses, the fish plants, ice houses, maintenance yards, etc. There is one tired old tug boat tied up to an ...
... dog in the car, took a few pics, and gawking.
After hitting up the National Park visitor center, we continued south on the 101 taking a brief trip along a parallel road coined "Avenue of the Giants" and saw even more big trees. The drive today today was very interesting and somewhat unexpected. We obviously knew we would see the redwoods. What I didn't anticipate was how the road would wind from the ...
... are some very steep places you can walk down to the water. Didn't try it though but did see people down on the shore. There is still evidence of when this area was a big logging community. There were some more sea archs with the waves crashing through and another collapsed sea cave. It was all very nice but the flowers were not as colorful as though we had seen on the Russian Gulch headlands.
As we left the headlands and ...
... 30. This particular Inn does a light buffet dinner at 5:30 which you can help yourself to and it has been enough to have as a dinner so we don't have to worry about eating out in the evening. These Inns are quite social. Normally you meet with the other residents in the lounges or at breakfast when you may sit with them too. It's interesting to talk to other travellers. But no good if you want to keep yourself to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alegria Oceanfront Inn and Cottages Mendocino
Great for romance!
I made our reservation based on reviews found here. We were not disappointed in any way. The location is ideal. A private walk down to the beach. A very close walk to town, restaurants and the headlands. It is on the ocean side of the road with lovely gardens overlooking the ocean. Take a swimsuit for the jacuzzi...I forgot mine and was bummed! The rooms are cabin-like and very private, both of the rooms we stayed in had a fireplace or woodstove. Breakfast is at 9:00 and not to be missed! Dinner at Cafe Beaujolais, just a short walk away, was delightful. We had the Washington sturgeon filet with truffle emulsion sauce that was recommended to us. This was our first stay at a B&B and the bar has been set very high by Elaine and Eric who were a joy to meet.
Alegria B & B . Better than adverised.
Only a few rooms but each with spectacular views. Very clean. Excellent breakfast with congenial hosts. Located so as to be in walking distance of a number of good restaurants.
Great Food, Great People!
My wife and I stayed at the Alegria back in January and thoroughly enjoyed it! All the good reviews here do not lie, as I quickly found out. The owners made us feel very much at home, and had no problem presenting my vegetarian wife with several breakfast options. They were very helpful with dinner suggestions too, despite the limited off season availability. Can't wait to get back.
Based on Trip Advisor
Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we reserved a cottage for our anniversary. Everything was wonderful! We loved the private beach access, easy walks to the village and watching the river otters. The innkeepers & all the staff were friendly and ready to address ANY need.
From making the reservation to saying good by, every minute was a positive experience! We would recommend it to everyone!
Newlyweds on the run up the coast find the best of the best.....
My husband and I traveled up the coast for our honeymoon, and Mendocino was our favorite stop. Alegria has stolen our hearts. The innkeepers were amazing. The cottage was spectacular! Of all the inns and bed and breakfasts that we stopped over the course of the two weeks of travel, Alegria felt most like home. Dinner reservations were made for us, a bottle of wine was placed in our room, and the breakfast was one of the best. (The organic apple juice is one of the many things we miss most!) Alegria felt like a little piece of heaven. It is highly recommended.
We had a great time!
Our stay at the Alegria Inn was wonderful. The innkeepers are extremely friendly. A bottle of wine was waiting in our room when we arrived.
Breakfast was delicious (probably the best blueberry creamcheese coffeecake i've ever tasted) and the inn is located just a block away from the shops and restaurants of Mendocino. I'd definitely stay again!
We recently spent a few days at the Alegria and enjoyed it very much! The owners, Eric and Elaine, are personable, down to earth, and helpful - they do a really great breakfast in the sunny breakfast room overlooking the garden and ocean. The food was quite tasty, fresh and organic. Who could ask for more? The inn is about 1 block from the start of the village shops, so it's very convenient for shopping and eating out. Our family stayed in the Pacific Suite and Sea Breeze. Both have gorgeous views of the water but the Pacific Suite is far superior to the Sea Breeze in size and comfort. It has a large bathroom with separate tub and shower while Sea Breeze has a small bathroom with the wash basin in the bedroom. The Sea Breeze also lacks drawers to keep clothes for more than an overnight stay. There was no noise at night in the main house - very restful. (The Captain's Cove and Garden Cottage are smaller than they appear in the website pictures but they are cute.) The garden is very nicely done and a peaceful spot to sit for awhile, taking in the gorgeous view. We would definitely stay at the Alegria again.
I can not say enough nice things about the Alegria Inn and its wonderful owners. They offer the most friendly, personal service- even asking what type of tea you'd like in your room and whether or not you'd like to have a newspaper delivered in the morning. A nice bottle of wine and welcome note is always waiting for us when we arrive. The home-made breakfasts, served in a beautiful nook overlooking the ocean are heavenly!
My husband and I recommend this perfect little inn to everyone we can.
A perfect getaway
My husband and I celebrated our lst wedding anniversary and stayed in the Alegria in Mendocino for two perfect nights. We had a view of the well-kept gardens and the ocean from our room, there was a path to the beach..and the innkeepers, Elaine and Eric could not have been more accomodating. Loved this inn!
A Wonderful Mendocino Getaway
We loved the Alegria so much we ended up extending our stay there spontaneously. The innkeepers were friendly and warm, the cottage we stayed in was charming, with a great view of the ocean and beach, and the gourmet breakfasts were incredibly yummy. The spot was perfect -- tucked away, overlooking the ocean with private beach access, but within walking distance of the village and restaurants. We are already planning to return. Highly recommended!
