Hotels in Mendocino

Set 125 feet on a bluff above the Pacific, this farmhouse and collection of cottages are well guarded from the occasional 25-foot wave that crashes into the cliff below.

Standing on the balcony of the Osprey Room at the Brewery Gulch Inn might satisfy a lingering childhood fantasy of living in a tree fort. A mile south of the historic California town of Mendocino, the inn is bordered by pine, fir, and hemlock and overlooks verdant meadows and the Pacific Ocean.
