About

Vogue Magazine, Travel+Leisure, and New York Magazine's pick for Mendocino lodging. Glendeven is a luxury, eight-acre, ocean-view farmstead overlooking ocean-view meadows and lush forests. Its four buildings are developed around a fully restored 1867 New England-style farmhouse where a typical room is a suite with wood-burning fireplace, ocean views, a view balcony, queen or king bed and a private bath. All rooms have featherbeds, well-lit reading areas, music players, hairdryers, luxury robes, and free WiFi. A full three-course hot breakfast is served in-room each morning, complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres are available in Glendeven's own Wine Barn which is Mendocino's only wine purveyor serving and selling only local Anderson Valley wines by the bottle. Glendeven is known for its fine antiques blended with contemporary art, a lounge-like ocean-view sitting room with games and a brick-hearthed fireplace. Stunning botanical gardens, grazing llamas, and 100 laying hens contribute to Glendeven's feeling of a luxury ocean view farmstead. Enjoy this wonderful place to stay on California’s spectacular Mendocino coast.

The High Tea was wonderful overlooking the farm! Also loved the spaciousness of the room with a fabulous breakfast brought in a basket.


Ready to Go Back!

What a breathtaking stay. I have never been somewhere so beautiful. PROS: Trails, llamas, chickens, breakfast, bedding, fireplace, privacy, Alex, on and on.... CONS: The ONLY complaint I have is that the B&B was not right on the water. That is the only thing that would actually improve this place. WAS OUTSTANDING!


Fantastic Place!

Our favorite place! My wife and I truly love this inn. We come here at least twice a year to be pampered and escape the grind. Breakfast in bed is always delicious with small snacks in the wine bar you are covered. The beds at Cooblers Walk are incredible and the rooms are spotless. We went to one of the dinners that they host last year and it was superb! John is a very conscientious host, He even put together a picnic-backpack for me so I could surprise my girlfriend and propose overlooking the ocean. She said yes! Eric & Melissa :)


A little piece of heaven in Little River Ca

If you have never stayed at a B&B before, this is either the place to start or finish. This place will spoil you if you if you have ever been to a B&B and if you have never been to a B&B you will never stay anywhere again.


Glendeven Inn FTW!

Love this place! This was our third time back, this time with my folks in tow. They loved it too. The breakfasts have always been great. Since my parents were in a separate room, we asked if breakfast could be set up for us in the common room for Christmas morning and they accommodated us with no problem. We can't wait to come back again. Such a lovely spot on the Mendocino coast.

Nice quiet room and very clean. Hiking trails in the immediate vicinity was great and we enjoyed it very much. Local dining was the best.


Glendeven week-end away

This is our go to place for week-ends away. Nothing compares to it in quality, peace and beauty.


Look forward to my visit every year!

We have started going every year at Thanksgiving. We stay at Glendeven because we have our holiday nearby with relatives. I look forward to our delightful retreat all year long. The the beds are wonderful. The breakfasts and baked goods are delightful. The ownership provides many thoughtful details. It was very cold this year and there was a wonderful oil heater in our room, think I will get one for our home, it was warm without drying out the air. Glendeven is a very special place.


Relax and enjoy life!!!!

Excellent 3 course breakfast delivered to your room. Staff very helpful. Great location. Had the Garrett room with a super view of the Ocean/Bay. Slept like a log. Very comfortable. Wine tasting, evening apps and sherry night cap. Llamas and chicken on site. We fed the chickens by day and had their eggs for breakfast. Even our parking spot had our name on it. A bit of road noise but easy to ignore. Great access to walking trails at Van Damme park. Will be repeat customers.


Wonderful stay!

Spent a long weekend at Glendeven Inn. As always, my visit was relaxing. The staff is very helpful. Wish they would re-instate the Winemaker's Dinners!
