We stayed in the Wilson room for a couple of nights and had a great stay. We were pleasantly surprised how large the room was. The pot belly fireplace was all set up with wood and it was too hard to resist not having a fire after walking home from dinner one chilly night. What was nice about the room...

Now into our third night of four at Headlands, our stay has been lovely. Denise and Mitch are great and take time to give advice and help if needed. The Switzer room was immaculate and very comfortable; credit to the housekeeping staff too! Loved the wIndow seats! The whole inn is well kept and there are nice touches...chocolates in the...

We had the Strauss room, front and center of the Inn. Pros: Very clean, tastefully decorated, expansive, comfortable sitting area, a working fireplace-prepared and ready for your use, slice of ocean view, view of attractive front garden and grounds, plenty of natural light, bay window with table and chairs, plenty of mirrors and electrical outlets and surfaces in room to...

We had a perfect stay at the Headlands Inn b&b in Mendocino (unfortunately just 1 night). The inn is very very nice, accurately restored in an English-style manner. The owners are very kind and attentive. We enjoyed a superb breakfast served in room, which was very pleasant since the room we were in has a table just in front of...

My husband and I chose Headlands based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We stayed in the John Barry room for two nights and enjoyed the in-room fireplace during a cool, foggy period. The adorable village of Mendocino is fun to walk around and there is so much to do in the surrounding area. We...

The Headlands Inn has been a wonderful getaway for my husband and me on the weekends that we spend in Mendocino. We stay in Casper's Cottage, which is completely removed from the main house, but connected by either a walkway through, or just walking around the cottage to reach the front door. This gives a lot of privacy, which is...

I am writing this in behalf of my daughter and her new husband. They had two days after their wedding for a quick get-a-way and when she suggested Mendocino to me, I thought, PERFECT! I went on Tripadvisor, as I often do, for suggestions and when I read the reviews and looked at the photos (especially of the breakfasts!), I...

Well, they outdo themselves here! Flowers in the entry, guest rooms, granola & fruit bowls! We had a room with a fireplace & the back deck. We enjoyed our breakfast outside the second morning, which was a treat! Bathroom is tiny, but otherwise no complaints! Friendly service & DELICIOUS breakfasts! Ask for the recipes!

Great location, hospitality, & breakfast. We stayed in the cottage. Spatious modern bathroom, working fireplace in the living room, feathertop mattress, private entrance, could not have asked for more.

Great place to stay! It was such a relaxing stay with wonderful food and service! The owners were so helpful and friendly and there are many added touches that make the experience unique and special. It is a great place for a relaxing get-a-way and was fun to hike and stroll through town.
