If Mendocino is the New England village of the West Coast, then Glendeven is the local country manor with sea views. The main house was built in 1867 and is surrounded by acres of gardens, complete with llamas and chickens that provide eggs for the sumptuous three-course breakfast served in-room. Inside are five guest rooms, three with fireplaces. A converted barn holds an art gallery and a wine bar that are open to the public daily. The 1986 Stevenscroft building, with
its high gabled roof, contains four rooms with fireplaces. The carriage-house suite makes for a romantic retreat, and an additional two-story loft in the barn accommodates groups of up to six people. A four-course farm-to-table dinner with optional wine-pairing is offered on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday ($$$$; reservations essential). The inn is just off the road; quietest rooms are on the far side of the property.
