Travel Blogs from Mendocino
Our arrival into Mendocino was nothing short of perfect. The first B&B whose door we knocked on opened to the smell of fresh baked cookies (Peanut Butter) and a warm welcoming smile from Denise, part of the husband and wife team who own this amazing property, so you can see it wasn't a hard sell. It's important to note that the cookies were …
We decided to write down all the things we wanted to do in our last few weeks in California so we would leave feeling we'd done almost everything.
The main one was a road trip north this time, to see the redwood forests and go hiking, as well as seeing some more beautiful coastline. Kyra had loads of great advice of places to go and we started by spending a day with her in Marin county, hiking on Mount Tamalpais and spending time on the beach in a hippie town called Bolinas. ...
... Terry`s house is just across the road from the ocean and it is so awesomely convenient to talk a walk on the cliffs and beaches, or go look for starfish and tidal pool critters, or go seal spotting, or watch those big Pacific waves crashing on the rocks, or dig in the sand, or watch a sunset over the waves. It is beautiful.
What else have we been up to? Well, Kevin is sewing again and I have done a couple alterations too. I am fermenting soda ...

Jonas ordered up a beer as the color crept back into my white knuckles (seriously, we had covered about 20 miles at this point, and did not feel close to the coast at all). I had a sample of the Summer Solstice beer, which tasted like melted caramel. We started ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Headlands Inn Bed & Breakfast Mendocino
Don't miss a visit to the Headlands Inn
We recently made a 2-week journey through the wine country, Medicino, Sacramento, Yosemite, Carmel, and San Francisco.
If you plan to stay in Medicino, you will not be disappointed with the Headlands Inn. First of all the innkeepers, Denise & Mitch, are fantastic. They will go out of their way to make your stay as comfortable as possible, and will also help you with information if you are continuing your journey.
The breakfasts at the Headlands were, by far, the best we encountered on our trip. They are located within walking distance to everywhere in Medicino. Don't miss out on this wonderful experience.
Just stayed at the Headlands over this past weekend. We booked the room pretty late and stayed in Annie's Room. Definitely bigger than the pics indicated - it's on the first floor but very private in the rear of the house. It's a B&B, so you can hear the room above, but that's normal in older houses.
We stayed 3 nights during Valentines Day week in the Casper Cottage and had a memorible stay. The innkeepers, Denise and Mitch, were very attentive and helpful during our stay, making needed reservations and giving suggesstions on restaurants and day trips. The breakfasts delivered to your room every morning were outstanding. I would definitely stay here again, especially in the Casper Cottage.
Fabulous start to 2005!
My husband and I stayed at the Headlands Inn 12/31 - 1/2, and the B&B has given us a new standard of excellence. Annie's Room was quiet and comfortable, and the breakfasts were outstanding. We felt incredibly welcome and pampered by the whole staff, and you can't beat the location. I can't wait to return!
Great B&B Experience
Our entire family stayed at the Headlands Inn, and we were all unanimous in praising it. Our rooms were all good sized, and the breakfasts served to our rooms were outstanding. The location, in the middle of the city of Mendocino, was perfect for exploring the city and walking to restaurants for dinner. The proprietors and help were all very helpful in their recommendations. We all would definitely stay there again.
We first stayed at the Headlands Inn in 1995 for an Easter holiday and loved it and Mendocino itself so much that we returned every year, sometimes twice a year, for several years afterwards - despite the fact that we live 5000 miles away! The owners then were perfect innkeepers providing a warm welcome, local information and faultless attention to detail that made for a outstanding B&B experience. For us the Headlands Inn became, in effect, the benchmark by which we judged all other B&Bs.
Annie's room was so cozy and quiet. We only stayed one night on our way up the coast but we had the best night sleep in the most comfortable bed. Breakfast in the morning was beyond our expectations, seriously yummy. The Inn and it's keepers were very inviting and thoughtful. Just a short walk to the beach. Enjoy...
Wonderful B&B in Mendocino
The Headlands Inn is my favorite place to stay in Mendocino. The rooms are charmingly decorated with just the right balance of period detail and modern-day coziness. My favorites are the John Barry (a cozy garret on top of the world with stunning views of the bay and a crackling fireplace) and the Bessie Strauss (a grand suite with the softest feather bed and a bay window in which you can sit and contemplate the ocean). I love that the delicious breakfasts are served to your room -- very private and romantic. Denise and Mitch are warm and friendly and will go out of their way to make your trip extra special!
Greatest Inn for your Dollar in Mendo
This is the best place to stay, and best breakfast in Mendocino. And we've stayed at several others in Mendocino but the Headlands is by far and away the best.
Breakfast was beautiful, a mix of sweets and savory delivered to your door.
Very close to shopping. We watched the whales breeching from our bedroom window!
Wonderful place to stay!
I loved the Headlands Inn! I have been there a few times and each time I have stayed in a different room. Each visit has been wonderful!
Breakfast is amazing and the innkeeper is willing to accomodate my dietary requests each time I have asked. The last time I stayed (in Annie's room) we were late and the key was left in the box for us. We were given two bottles of complimentary wine upon our departure when the innkeeper discovered it was my boyfriend's birthday. The Headland's Inn has spoiled me--no other B & B has lived up to my experiences there. Stay in the Caspar Cottage--it's is a little piece of heaven!
