I was looking for a truly romantic and private venue to take my wife for our 25th anniversary. I did some research online and decided to try Cypress Cove based on how much people seemed to enjoy their experiences there. I have to say that it lived up to the billing. We stayed in the top (Pacifica) suite and enjoyed a fabulous view of Mendocino Bay and the relaxing sound of the surf on the cliffs below us. The suite was clean and well-appointed and even though some guests occupied the Cove suite below us, it felt very secluded and private. I arranged through the management staff to have a floral bouquet waiting for my wife on our arrival, and they did one better - a second bouquet with their compliments - a very thoughtful touch! The town of Mendocino is a five minute drive north around the bay, where we enjoyed the food, shopping, and some hiking very, very much!
Only negative I can think of was that the flue in the wood-burning stove got stuck during the second day of our stay, so things got a little smoky after I lit the fire. I had to dowse it, as I couldn't figure out how to open the flue that had been working the day before.
All in all, this is a wonderful and romantic getaway that I highly recommend, and I do suggest the Pacifica suite, as it offers a bit more privacy being on the second floor. This was about a 4-hour drive from our home in the East Bay (near Oakland, CA), but my wife and I both agree it was very much worth the trip and are looking forward to returning soon!
