Fodor's Expert Review MacCallum House

45020 Albion St., Mendocino, California, 95460, USA

Set on 2 flower-filled acres in the middle of town, this inn is a perfect mix of Victorian charm and modern luxury. Rosebushes planted by the original owner in the late 1800s still bloom in the garden, but inside, the rooms have private saunas and spa tubs. Rooms in the main house and renovated barn (six in each) feel genteel and romantic, while the seven cottages nearby are bright and honeymoon-y. One of them, the water tower, is unforgettable, with a living room on the first floor, a sauna on the second, and a huge view of the ocean from the bed on the third. The MacCallum lineup also includes modern luxury suites four blocks away and a few vacation rentals. The chef at the outstanding restaurant ($$$$) hand selects the best local ingredients, and everything from ice cream to mozzarella is prepared daily from scratch.
