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 mint condition 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'eouvres are available in Glendeven's own Wine Bar[n] which is Mendocino's only wine purveyor serving and selling only local Anderson Valley wines by the glass and 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 50 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.

Glendeven was a wonderful place to spend a weekend

4.8 on February 22, 2014

Our stay was met with a warm welcome and staff. The llamas and chickens were delightful and the scenery was wonderful, despite it being in the winter. Our suite overlooked the farm and ocean. Having breakfast in our suite, with the french doors open to the ocean view, with the llamas grazing in the distance was almost surreal. The 24/7 availability of cookies, coffee/tea and hot chocolate allowed for snacking when you need that little chocolate pick-me-up (even late at night). The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! You can even feed the hens that laid the eggs used in your breakfast. The only relative disappointment was the on site dinner option. It was fine if you are dining in, but other restaurants in the area may be a better choice. It also allowed us to meet the other guests, which was very nice if you don't mind being a bit social. The only reason I give dining 4 stars is because I would give the breakfast a 5+ but dinner a 2. The complementary wine and hors d'oeuvres were a very nice evening treat. This is an excellent B & B to go to if you are in the Mendicino area. I definitely want to come back again!

Glendeven is a slice of heaven on earth !!

Every little detail of our stay and hospitality at Glendeven was beyond our expectations. We stayed in the beautiful Carriage House....a beautifully appointed 750 square foot, second-story room. From the moment we arrived, with the chicken welcoming committee, to the moment we left, enough cannot be said about the details that go into making the guests feel like they are at home. Highly recommended stop for the north coast. Make sure to dine at Wild Fish while there. A little 10-table establishment that will blow your socks off. Order the's local and wonderful.

We had a wonderful 2 day stay in Etta's Suite. Overlooking the cute llamas and great ocean view. Gourmet breakfast brought to the room was fabulous, especially the coffee! Also romantic wood fireplace ready to go and most cozy bed. Plus wine tasting in the evening at the wine bar. Very close to some scenic hiking trails. Highly recommend the Glendeven for eliminating the stress.

Was a lovely evening and morning at Gleneven. We arrived late, but had enough time to see walk the grounds and feed the chickens. We hadn't eaten and they weren't serving dinner that tuesday night so we bought some local cheese from the storefront and they were nice enough to provide some grapes and baguette free of charge to accompany our purchase. This is a very well thought out and functional place (both physically and in terms of service and amenities) to spend a relaxing weekend on the coast. Highly recommended.

Best B & B experience in Mendocino

Glendeven Inn more than met my expectations, which were high, because of the number one ranking on TripAdvisor. I have stayed at several other B&B's in Mendocino, and this one is by far the most comfortable and luxurious with no detail overlooked. Sumptuous breakfast and evening wine and hors d'oeuvres were much appreciated. I hope to return and sample the farm to table dinner next time.
