10481 Howard Street , Mendocino, 95460-0150 USA (Show map)


Blue Door Group — Inns of Mendocino, offers comfort and elegance by the sea at its 19 Mendocino bed and breakfast rooms spread across three Victorian inn buildings in the heart of Mendocino village. Packard House, JD House and Blue Door Inn are located within a few blocks of each other and the town’s magnificent oceanside cliffs, water towers, and celebrated gardens. Packard House features chic design with colorful accents and a marvelous interior courtyard and patio. JD House offers sweeping ocean views and dramatic English gardens. Blue Door Inn is uber-sleek with stylish decor and a lovely garden with timeless grace. An afternoon wine hour rotates between the three Mendocino inn locations, giving guests a taste of each property. Forgo the car and walk to Mendocino's quaint shops and restaurants. You can watch an osprey soar from your private deck, relax to the sounds of waves, or stroll out to the rugged cliffs — all just outside our signature blue doors.
