Great customer service! We had a very pleasant experience in Mendocino and the Headlands Inn. We stayed in the Strauss suite which was very roomy 7 the breakfast was quite generous.

We went to Mendocino and stayed here on the 1st of January. The room is pretty pleasing, nice and romantic. We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was quite generous and were helpful right till the day we checked out. The breakfast was great as well. Will definitely come back and stay here during the summers.

This bed & breakfast is one of the most hospitable and relaxing places I have ever had the privilege to stay at. Perfect for recharging and relaxing.

We spent our anniversary at Headlands Inn. The proprietors provided a split (half bottle) of wine to acknowledge our anniversary. That was unexpected and a nice touch. We stayed three nights. Breakfast was served to our room each morning between 8:45 and 9:00. A bit late for us since we are early risers. We were able to arrange for coffee,...

Thank you for your kind words! We enjoyed your visit, and we’re happy that you stayed with us in celebration of your anniversary. Yes, our beautiful, almost 150 year old inn, has its charm! But we do have modern amenities, including in-room heater units. TO THOSE READING THIS RESPONSE: Our wood burning fireplaces add a wonderful source of ambience, but...

Had a wonderful stay with Denise & Mitch. A beautiful location with decent views of the bay. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, except that the bed mattress was very tired with limited support. Highlight of the stay was breakfast, lovingly delivered to the room by Mitch right on time. The parlor is a bit small and therefore interaction...

We had a wonderful stay! The room was charming and totally clean, which is a big deal to us. And the breakfast was superb.

We started our two week vacation in Northern California here. Two nights at this welcoming and wonderful B&B gave us the perfect "reset". The featherbed in our room was amazing!! We slept with windows open. The crisp air and warm bedding allowed us to enjoy the ocean and waterfall sounds comfortably. Our breakfasts were world class!!! They were excellently prepared...
