Good place to Stay.

House built in 1905. Rooms were clean. Breakfast in the morning was really nice. I would stay there again.


Enchanted Forest

Nicholson is a gem in Mendocino! We visit once a year to the lovely rooms of Russian Rose and Enchanted Forest. Enjoy delicious breakfast of fresh fruit and homemade scones, before hiking the awesome headlands, within shirt walking distance. The innkeepers are a value of knowledge and lore of Mendocino, history, culture, events, etc. We wish to share the magic of the inn with others, a place to truly restore your spirit.


Great stay at Nicholson House

4.0 on February 23, 2015

Our family enjoyed our stay very much. The location is just ideal. Not overlooking the water but on a lovely street with cute restaurants (one which bakes bread for sale every morning). The Presbyterian View room was perfect for us - very comfortable living room and nice place for us to relax. Kitchen was very convenient since there is a wonderful market 2 blocks away. Great feature for families since restaurants are very pricey in Mendocino. Brent is quiet and kind person. Breakfast was perfect every morning - wonderful coffee, berries and fresh baked scones were some favorites. Plenty of other things to choose from for a hearty breakfast. We really enjoyed our stay!

Our room was very nice, with a separate sitting area and kitchenette. The location was terrific, walking distance to everything in town. However, the host(s) were a bit gruff (not at all what we've come to expect at a B&B) and the breakfast was rather simple, "do it yourself".


Ocean view from the Orca Room?

If you stand in the right hand corner and press your head to the wall, you can see the ocean. Nice stay otherwise, staff were great.


Decent, nothing exceptional.

I will say that Nicholson house is in a great location, a quick walk from the Mendocino headlands, and next to a couple of cute restaurants. The room itself was warm and cozy, but the bathroom was musty and damp. Breakfast was nice. The innkeeper was helpful, but very curt in our interactions; it could just be a difference in personalities, but the few times I asked him for suggestions about places to go or things to do, I had the distinct impression that he couldn't wait to be done talking to me. If I go to Mendocino again, I'll probably look at a different place.


comfortable, reasonably priced

Within easy walking distance of everything you want to see and a very comfortable bed. There's a wonderful surprise when you turn out the lights at night, but I won't give it away.


Great place to stay. Great location in town.
