Glendeven Inn Mendocino

8205 N. Hwy. 1, Mendocino, California, 95456, USA

Fodor’s Expert Review

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 three-course breakfast served in-room. Inside are five guest rooms, three with fireplaces. A converted barn holds an art gallery and a guests-only wine bar that's open daily 3–7. The 1986 Stevenscroft building, with its high gabled roof, contains four rooms with fireplaces. The carriage-house suite makes for a romantic retreat, and there's a beach cottage that sleeps up to four people. Four-course farm-to-table dinners with optional wine pairing ($$$$; reservations essential) are offered on some nights or you can book a private candlelit dinner. The inn is just off the road; the quietest rooms are on the far side of the property.
