A quiet day - no big driving miles. Just some recovery time. We had a view from the Inn where we were staying but hard to see because of the rolling fog which looks like it will be around all day. We are staying in an 'Inn' (The Brewery Gulch Inn). The Inns here are a cross between bed and breakfast …
Miles today = 282 miles Total miles = 1005 miles For the first time in the trip we managed to leave somewhere before 09:00. This was partly due to breakfast at hotel which essentially was just a cake in a bag. It was advertised as 'continental breakfast' but we weren't sure which continent it came from because as Neil said 'it wasn't Europe'. There …
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 ...
... drag has a Safeway, Walgreens, Denny's, etc. The marina on the other hand is funky and is from a completely different era - much to our delight.
We're sorry to say we really blew it picture-wise coming in. The river channel is quite small. Because of this we both were focused on navigating and didn't get any pictures. But if you've seen the movie "Popeye" starring Robin Williams you know exactly what the Noyo River entrance looks like so you ...
... tall and old, many covered in dangling, fuzzy moss, and commented how truly quiet and calm it was.
After our walk, we stopped by "Big Tree" which was 304 feet tall, 21.6 feet in diameter, 68 feet in circumference, and estimated to be 1500 years old. We then drove up a massive hill to access the Lady Bird Johnson Grove, which again was not dog friendly, so we walked briefly down the mile loop, leaving ...

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.
This was my first time in Mendocino. My experience at the Brewery Gulch Inn ensures that it won't be my last.
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 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
