Travel Blogs from Mendocino
We left Vacaville and headed north through the farmlands. We then turned left into the mountains. What a beautiful trip to Willits. The KOA here, is geared for kids and has everything from a petting zoo to a splash park including a least a million kids. We were assigned the site beside the splash park and next to the Skunk Train tracks. The ...

That evening ...
... make an appearance even though surfing was a hard challenge, only few could achieve! After our relaxed picnic on the beach we continued along the coast to Candle Point, to enjoy views across San Francisco. After a quick photo stop we hopped back in the car and continued on towards San Francisco. Although it was only a drive through the city, we loved it! The place was busy, full of life. Trams were rolling along the road, the roads were alive with controlled traffic. It did ...
... out, all was so beautiful. From there we walked back into town and spent some time enjoying all of the outdoor art at the Art Place. So many creative pieces of work to see.
Back to Dick's for an evening of laser light show, techno music and lots of dancing. It was a different crowd from the occupants of the barstools when we first arrived. Must say the birthday boys did have a good time and we all made it safely back to our tents
... A couple of scenic photostops early on - a cove with three 'natural bridges' formed by rock formations and some early morning beach views with the mist just beginning to gather. But today we left Oregon State and drove over the border to California State which is where the remainder of our trip is going to be centred around. I managed to snap a pic of the border sign as we drove by. All through the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Maccallum House Inn Mendocino
The best B&B on the N. Coast
MacCallum House is the best B&B I have ever stayed at. The staff was amazingly accomadating. The food was out of this world and the rooms are so beautiful and cozy! I would reccomend anyone to stay at the MacCallum House before you go anywhere else!! :)
We stayed at the MacCallum House for our 25th wedding anniversary in August and could not have been more delighted. We have stayed in a number of bed and breakfasts in Mendocino and the MacCallum House is by far the best we have found. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel special. There are lots of little touches and attention to detail that made for a wonderful memory...the wine hour, free bottled water and soda and an unbelievable breakfast. After checking into our room we found a bottle of Roederer sparkling wine and a hand written note wishing us a happy anniversary! That night we had a great meal at the MacCallum House restaurant (try the hanger steak and the scallops). We also had a wonderful meal at the Ledford House the following evening...great sunsets from their bar. I highly recommend the MacCallum House to anyone staying in Mendocino. We thought it was a tremendous value and in the best location in Mendocino. We will be back in August 2005!
We LOVE this place!
We stayed at the MacCallum House for one night this past May. We stayed in The Loft. This room was so cozy! The wood stove was wonderful, and the bed was very comfortable. The staff was incredibly helpful and sweet. We found our stay to be everything we could have wished for. The website really did the room justice. The complimentary breakfast was outstanding. We recommend the MacCallum House to anyone!
Pros: Central location (though not necessary), nice bathroom (room 2 in the main house), free wine and cheese reception, excellent breakfast (you get to order off the menu), complimentary bottled water and juice near our room.
Visitor friendly upgrade policy
We originally booked a small cottage because of the price. When we arrived we were given the keys to a suite just because "it's available and it's our policy to upgrade whenever possible." Needless to say, we immediately felt appreciated and valued. In addition to the welcoming hospitality and friendliness, we enjoyed such ammenities as the wine hour at the cozy bar and the gourmet breakfasts. (Being able to order off the menu was a definite plus for those of us who do not appreciate the usual high calorie fare at most B & B's.) The rooms had other nice touches as well: luxurious bathrobes and coffee makers. The innkeepers did everything possible to make our stay a delightful experience.
YUCK YUCK YUCK
Digusting! I can't believe the price that they ask for a nights stay in such a lousy dump. First off, the website is totally not what it looks like. It is a dump. We were going to stay in the Upper Barn Suite. This was disgusting. The floors were dirty and there were bugs!!! I do NOT reccommend this place. For 300 dollars a night it should have been a whole lot better. After we complained they moved us to what they called a "more modern" suite. This was also horrible. It was a pink hell. This room smelled like cat pee, and the bed was lopsided. So romantic for honeymooners huh?? Anyways, I hated it there. It was gross. If you are looking for a great place to stay in Mendocino at a good rate stay at the Auberge Mendocino. It is excellent! :)
Not as Clean for the Price
I stayed in Oceansong, the 2 bedroom home about a block away from the main house. The location was great - close to the shops and the headlines. I was a bit surprised that in sitting down in the living room sofa, that looking underneath the entertainment center were things thrown there. Obviously, was not cleaned. Also, the portable CD player was not working properly. For the price, I would have expected more.
Just the best!
Our room was located in the converted barn. Nice size, king bed and clean. Would have perferred a room with a fireplace but none available at booking. Great hot tub and nice people. You always pay a premium price for accomodations in the heart of the village. That's why it's called "Spendocino". Great eggs florentine as well as all the items on the breakfast menu. Fantastic dinners in an elegant dinig room. Will be visiting again soon.
Great breakfast, cramped quarters, expensive
Some of the best breakfast in Mendocino, and nice staff, but the cottages are tiny and squashed into a small yard around the house. The room we rented was the the "barn" -- nice enough room with an ocean view and deck but quite noisy because of thin walls. These drawbacks would be forgivable in a less expensive lodging, but the for the price, you expect more.
We stayed in the Greenhouse at the Maccalllum House on a recent trip to Mendocino. The room was somewhat less than what we expected. It was very small, the bathtub was dirty, the hot tub had a bad odor, and it was VERY overpriced. There were 2 skylights in the room which seemed OK until in the morning when we wanted to sleep in and the sunlight was blarring in our faces, and at night people in the top floor of the house could look down into the room. The breakfast in the morning was very good.
