Historical Traveler Reviews Brewery Gulch Inn Mendocino
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to The Brewery Gulch Inn! The rooms were quiet and very comfortable (and we stayed on the bottom floor when the inn was nearly full - noise was not a problem!), the food was exceptional, the staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive.
This is a great place to stay as long as you don't stay on the bottom floor. If you stay on the first floor it feels like someone is walking on your head every time you try to sleep. That is my only complaint. Great food, Great location and a friendly staff.
A Little Bit of Heaven
We loved this inn! The breakfasts were organically scrumptious and the wine/hors d'oeuvres hour was first-class. The staff is not intrusive but helpful. So many wonderful little details - from the plastic bottles to fill with their pure water to take along on the days outings to the speed-dial on the in-room phone to easily connect to area restaurants. Guest rooms are lovely with unusually confortable beds and luxury linens. This place is a little bit of heaven!!
Now A Wonderful Memory
We arrived at this inn with no reservation after seeing its sign on the road. We inquired about space and were told that they had a suite (two adjoining rooms, really) but were not told the price until we viewed the space. Very smart of them as the rooms are gorgeous! They offered us the lowest rate possible as it was last minute and we happily checked in. Complementary wines and nibbles were available and the staff were very helpful in finding a spot for dinner. The beds, as stated in other reviews, truly were the most comfortable we've ever enjoyed and we plan to purchase the same brand soon. Breakfast could not have been improved. A massive storm broke during the night and a large tree fell in the parking lot (missing all cars) but with a generator nothing was lost. Perfection.
Wonderful B&B with large spacious rooms and the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. I prefer the more masculine Mission style furnishings here compared to the Victorian style homes that abound in this area. The orange juice, granola, and the bacon are fabulous! It is a bit pricey but reasonable for this area and the quality of the lodgings.
The Brewery Gulch Inn was wonderful! We spent two nights there in the middle of August and had a great time. We stayed in the Manzanita. The room was large, spotless and really comfy with a small deck in which you could catch a glimpse of the ocean. The appetizers and wine and beer tasting in the evening is definitely not to miss! There's a large deck where everyone can congregate and tell each other what they did during the day - a good way to get ideas for the next day! The manager, staff and owners are all very nice and helpful. A beautiful inn that we will be going to again. While in the area, you might want to try the Mendicino Botanical Gardens.
Beautiful Place, Incredible Food
This was my first time in Mendocino. My experience at the Brewery Gulch Inn ensures that it won't be my last.
The place is absolutely beautiful. The main room is so welcoming that you want to sit there for hours, relaxing around the fireplace. It is also here that you will enjoy the incredible food and wine. Whatever you do, don't miss the wine/appetizers from 5:30-6:30. You get to enjoy things like prosciutto with fresh mozarella, artichoke/feta spread, and wonderful tortes. They also have several regional wines available. Navarro, Yorkville, and Barra wineries were all represented.
We stayed in the Lookout room (one of two loft rooms). The room was very well-appointed. We had a great view of Smuggler's Cove. But, if you want the jacuzzi tub and private balcony, you won't find them in the loft rooms.
The Brewery Gulch Inn is the place to stay in Mendocino if you are looking for a Bed and Breakfast with a feeling of luxury. You won't want to ever stay anywhere else.
Peaceful and Lovely Spot
We looked at many properties for our stay in Mendocino. There are advantages to being in town, but this property had it all- serenity, woods, fireplace,a meadow with grazing deer and a great ocean view from our room, Heron. Only a mile from the town, we walked there each morning with no problem.While not the largest room (queen bed, no jacuzzi) I think it had the best view of all, and we checked them all out. Every night Arky, the owner, came down and chatted while serving wine and delicious hors d'oeuvres. The lodge type room/lobby was stunning. Soft music plays, a fire crackles, a deck invites you out to sit and watch the waves crash across the way. There are games, books and videos for guests. The breakfast was outstanding. They packed us a gourmet lunch as part of the package, it too was first-rate. Only one slight disadvantage here is that you do hear the traffic on Hwy 1 when you're on your deck. It's never heavy, but it's there. Still, for the beauty of this place and the great service and friendly staff, nothing will disappoint!
We spent 3 nights at the Brewery Gulch Inn in October after a long day traveling from NYC to SF and then driving up to Mendocino (through vineyards, up and over mountains, through a redwood forest and finally along the Pacific coast. The weather was perfect -- sunny days and cool evenings. The Inn was wonderful in all respects. The staff was great, helpful and friendly and provided perfect suggestions as to excursions in the area. The room was comfortable, spacious and clean with a view into the woods overlooking the ocean. At 5:00, the inn provided good wine and great hors d'oeuvres which can easily tide you over. In the morning, a great breakfast. Among the highlights are sitting by the great 4-sided fireplace in comfortable Mission-style furniture, drinking coffee and reading the paper in anticiation of the coming day.
I would not hesitate to stay there again.
First time at B&B
I did lots of research on the web prior to choosing BGI. It was the first time I would be staying at a B&B. What helped me solidify my choice was their wonderful, useful website that had all the information I needed to make my choice.My due dilligence paid off. The Inn was beautiful and well kept. The staff and owner are EXCEPTIONAL and we loved the room we chose (PINE Room). The only slight "ding" I have is the "Ocean/Forest" view that if I stretched my head a certain way I could see the tip of the ocean through the trees....but everything else, including service, location, wonderful organic food, GREAT apple cider (for me who doesn't drink alcohol) and the couples massage we had right in our room topped it off. I hope if and when I choose to stay at another B&B, the experience will be this wonderful. Thank you BGI staff! We'll be back again. Karen

... 25 miles out it cleared up. We chose a route excluding motorways and toll roads, and on Hwy 17 sometime before San Jose we hit some woodsy twisting roads and started seeing some redwoods again. The terrain became somewhat like the Malahat drive; it was nice. Then the highway system got complicated as we looked for Hwy 85: we hit a whole bunch of areas where east/west highways meet north/south highways, with a bunch of exits for towns all at once, ...
... realized there would be no break in the dense swathes of burley trees, so I decided to blaze my own path up the steep embankment in search of a better view. It was well worth the climb. The world on all sides of me was covered in a thick tapestry of pines. The downhill section was the best to date. Apart from a short flat section, it provided miles of twisty, semi-banked 7% grade. Out ...
... State Historic Park, an area with a rehabilitated lighthouse and light keepers' homes dating from 1909. Robert was our guide and he was quite a talker. The light station was small, shorter than we expected, but there was a beautiful view of the coast from there and we could actually see harbor seals and cormorants on the rocks below us. ...
... bar that the tourist did wander into. There were all sorts of clever signs around including the signature one....... "So many *****, not enough Richards."
The bartender was full of himself and we had quite a conversation with him. He did tell us some about living and working in Mendocino. They are having some repairs done and he did talk about being in a historical area and what restrictions you have on what you can do to ...
Have got way behind with this blog, have not had wi-fi much lately, so will do a quick catch-up. After leaving Port Angeles we've basically travelled down the coast road from Washington, through Oregon & into California. Will just give a quick run-down on a few towns.
