Breakfast was deliciously prepared by a great host, Steve. We had frittata, blueberry smoothie, oatmeal with almond milk and a organic salad that we enjoyed very much. We will...

To be avoided ! No one to welcome you before 3 pm and after 6:00 pm. No breakfast before 9:00 am (horrible menu... No fresh fruit juce... No bread... Junk food). Shower not functioning properly. Bed and sheets nice. Well located.

We're pleased to hear that you enjoyed the beds and linens as well as the location of our Mendocino inn, and are truly sorry to hear you were otherwise dissatisfied with your experience there.
