Fantastic for Vacationing with your Dog!
What a fantastic place - very dog friendly and so relaxed and comfortable. I highly recommend the Garden Cottage. It is very secluded from the others and it is romantic and spacious. The innkeepers are fantastic - very accomodating and friendly. The breakfasts were very good - lots of variety for finicky eaters.
The ambience is great and the room was amazingly clean and comfortable. The view from the upper rooms such as Whale Watch and Captain's watch is very good, no view on the cliffs but a good view of the ocean. It is a terrific place to relax and bring your pet. They leave a little basket for your pet with carpets, treats, towels and even sheets to allow them on the bed and coach!!!! Very romantic getaway, very good food, very welcoming family. Everything was just perfect.
Great Pet & Kid Getaway
I was a little sceptical when I first heard how pet and family friendly the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek was from some Craig's list - users. In the past this has often meant substandard ammenities and cleanliness. However the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek is a real exception. The beds are fabulously comfortable - the breakfasts great - nice robes and linens in the rooms - all in all a high standard of comfort, style and attention to detail and yet my wife, kids and our dog Jake were all welcomed and treated like family. A great experience all around - thanks to Maureen & Steven for a much needed get away in a beautiful location.
Loved the ambience
Being from Philadelphia, I don't get to make it out to the west coast that often. But if I get the opportunity to make the trek again, I will make a point to stay at The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. The property is beautifully layed out on a slope overlooking the Pacific Ocean with views from many of the cottages as well as the hot tub at the top of the hill. The motif and decor of the cottages themselves are tastefully layed out in a style that can only be described as distinctly "Mendocino County." The owners, Maureen and Steven, are absolutely charming and bring a warm, personal atmosphere that can only be experienced in the B&B environment. Finally, this place is the perfect inn to bring that "special someone." My wife and I anxiously await the opportunity of spending another charming weekend at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek.

I can't think of a better place to go on vacation. The cottages, the gardens, the food, the beach, everything was wonderful. The innkeepers were so friendly and helped us plan an unforgettable vacation. I highly recommend the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek.
What a WONDERFUL place.
On our family honeymoon with my husband's 10 year old son and our dog we were lucky enough to stay here. We decided to change our stops up the coast from California to Seattle. We called two days before and thank goodness they had a vacancy. Great location, our cottage was great, rustic, but very clean. They even provided us with a pet basket with goodies for our dog. The grounds were so nice and well kept. Great outdoor chess set. The wine and snacks at night were a nice surprise. Breakfast was wonderful. Very relaxing place. The hot tub was a real treat too. Can't say enough about how wonderful it was. The only small issue we had was that it was unseasonably warm (July) and there is no air conditioning. But, how often do you need air conditioning. We just opened the windows and enjoyed the breeze (and bugs). We will recommend this place to all our friends, and anyone else that will listen.
Didn't actually get to stay there...
I booked this B&B on placestostay.com for 2 nights over Memorial Day weekend and I received a call from the Inn the next day saying that my reservation would not be processed beacuse they have a 3-night-minimum on a holiday weekend. I replied that I couldn't do 3 nights and that I had chosen their property because it didn't seem to have a 3-night minimum since the reservation went through and was confirmed. The owner would not acknoweldge their mistake and would not allow for an exception. I was offered to wait and see if the room wouldn't get booked for 3 nights, then I could have it. I refused that option. The next day I was offered another room for 2 nights for $100 more at night. If I had booked 3 nights at the original rate, it would have cost me less! I told them I wasn't interested in this property anymore!
A great place for the family OR romantic getaway!
We love to go up to the coast for a quick getaway. We loved our time at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. Our room was perfect for a family of four - we stayed at in the Heather Cottage. Other pluses are the hot tub at the top of the property, wine and treats at night, homemade cookies and a full breakfast in the morning. We would definitely go back!
Loved our time there!
We finally got away for our anniversary to the coast! We took our dog and stopped at the Inn...there was one other couple there (mid-week) and we had the pick of the place. Our dog was welcomed with his own little basket of goodies. Stayed in the Hawthorne cottage. Wood burning stove, separate living area, full kitchen and wonderful jacuzzi tub for two with window that looked out on garden behind the cottage. We felt we had the place to ourselves. The innkeepers were very informative, hospitable and gave us great suggestions on places to stop on our way down the coast. There is a secluded cove that is a 5 minute walk from the inn - BEAUTIFUL! Only regret...we didn't find it earlier in the week so we could have spent our time there instead! We'll be back.
I have stayed at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek numerous times. It is my only choice when visting the North Coast. The grounds are expansive and well maintained, the cottages are distinctive, comfortable, and romantic without being too country-cute, and the staff is helpful, friendly, and honestly seem to enjoy having you there. This is one of the best B and B's anywhere!

... only almost killed us twice. Once when Suzanne was asleep so don't anyone tell her. Today will be our last day driving around the coast, we head inland a bit. For those concerned we missed the quake in napa valley But only because we had not gotten there yet. We were due to visit it yesterday but decided to skip...for some funny reason. Anyway have to go and pack. Enjoy your ...
We went through the Smith part of the Redwood National Forrest and then on down the main Redwood Forrest where we took pictures of largest redwood 222.2 feet in diameter and originally 300 feet high. Spectacular. Then to Fort Bragg after a hair raising trip over 2 mountains on US 1001. In Fort Bragg we had difficulty finding a motel to spend night. Found one but expensive.
... of the headlands when John exclaims, "there is a whale!" Sure enough, there was one then another and before we had finished our walk had seen three or four. They evidently are moving up the coastline a little later than they usually do. Someone had told John and Cindy the Monterey bay water was shifting and the water that had been deep was coming to the surface with lots of nutrients and ...
... avoided as much as possible when sight seeing), We took a detour off the freeway, through Ferndale, a completely original Victorian town. It was fabulous. Pretty much everything was from that era, and it was just a normal town, not restored for tourism, just well maintained by the residents, and obviously lucky enough to avoid any fires.(The scourge of old wooden towns). Best of all, it was in a rich fertile valley, surrounded in old & still working Dairy Farms, so ...
... But it was going to be dark soon so in the end we had to cut the convo short which was dissapointing. We were both so annoyed that we had to leave. We drove 5 minutes out of town to Mckerricher state park where we set up camp for the night. Phin got the fire going while I put the tent up, then wandered through the trees to watch the sunset over the beach. Very pretty. Next morning we spent quite some time re packing the car as ...
