Food only okay

2.8 on February 28, 2014

The food was okay but not great and the beds were too soft, but overall they were personable and the inn was well run.


Perfect location and gorgeous historical property!

4.0 on February 08, 2014

We have stayed at Maccallum House twice and we have enjoyed our stay each time. The location is excellent! The morning breakfast delicious, especially the breakfast burrito. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. I would recommend this b and b. We plan to go every year for a weekend stay!


good time

It's a pleasant place to stay. The menu could stand a bit more variety, but the food is excellent.


A kind disappointed...

3.0 on September 17, 2009

Overall, it was not so bad. Great location, quiet room and cozy wood stove... and nice dining. However, the staff at check-in was not so friendly and didn't explain anything I need to know so well. I felt this young lady needs some education for staff couresy. That's the only thing I can advise for this B&B.


Almost a great night

We loved the McCalllum house except for the noise (spa pump) in the room. They were aware of this complaint. Otherwise, it's a beautiful place with friendly staff and excellent food.


Great place to stay

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the Maccallum House Inn. I will recommend it to friends/family and would stay there again.

Our stay at the Maccallum House was wonderful. The staff was gracious and most helpful. The accommodations were lovely and the dining was first class. The Maccallum is a stately and charming Victorian that stands out in this coastal village. We'll definitely be back to spend more time here.

Mendocino Getaway

3.8 on May 07, 2009

Our second trip to Mendocino and our second time staying at the Maccallum House. Charming B&B -- the cottages are very sweet to stay in and this time we experienced one of their suites as well. Definetly more space in the suites -- that building is several blocks further away from the Maccallum House and the ocean, but there's more privacy as well. Bed was unbelievably comfortable in the suite -- pretty good in the cottage. Room fireplaces are a plus, gas in suites/ real wood burning in cottages. Outdoor private jacuzzis are divine -- except when you're trying to drag the heavy covering on or off. Breakfasts are great -- there's actually a menu that you order from with quite a few choices. We got something different every day -- from Crab Cakes Benedict and Breakfast Burritos covered in guacamole, salsa & sour cream to Whole Grain Banana Pancakes with Maple Syrup. Served with OJ or Mimosas, Coffee and Tea. The casual dinners are also very good -- you have to pay for those but I think they're actually better for the price than the fancier ones served in the "stone" room. The chef likes to "deconstruct" traditional dishes within that casual menu: the chicken pot pie (which is really good) comes in a bowl with the cream sauce over it and the plate contains little mounds of mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, sugar snap peas and the crust, rather than engulfing the dish, is also on the side. Same deconstructing premise for their Mexican taco dish with little piles of tasty ingredients served in a different sort of way. It's worth it to use your daily $14 hotel voucher to go towards one of those meals. Mendocino is a little town so you're centrally located to walk everywhere. If we ever return to Mendocino we would certainly stay there again.
