Getting the Full B&B Experience in Mendocino, California
For the classic Mendocino experience, stay at the Joshua Grindle Inn—the cliff-top coastal town's original B&B. An elegant 1869 Victorian house with gingerbread trim, it’s ideally located near the heart of the village on two lush acres of land with gorgeous gardens and distant ocean views. Service is superb: The charming innkeepers are there when you need them, then disappear when you don’t. Rooms are decorated with Americana country furnishings (think quilts and wing chairs); it’s predictable, but matches the house and manages to be pretty, but not overly frilly. Some rooms have fireplaces. Say hello to Charles and Cindy; they’re really nice people.
