World's Best Hotels: Brewery Gulch Inn Mendocino, California

Roby La Porte

No. 20 Brewery Gulch Inn, Mendocino, CA

Score: 95.00

Just a mile south of historic Mendocino, the 10-room Brewery Gulch Inn has all the trappings of a fine hotel. Each bedroom is named for one of the region’s birds or trees and comes with a fireplace, fresh flowers, Craftsman-style furniture, and a fantastic view of Smuggler’s Cove. The redwood-shingled, three-story structure was built from 150-year-old timber eco-salvaged from the bottom of Mendocino’s Big River—a project that took 19 years. For outdoor adventures, have the concierge book a kayak tour of sea caves—or simply go hug a redwood.
