My wife and I celebrated our 11th anniversary here last August and stayed in the Garden room. Love how secluded it felt looking out into the redwoods with the ocean through the trees. Beautiful property and amazing breakfast. Would highly recommend the Garden room for a great atmosphere and a peaceful feeling of tranquility and rest.

My husband and I came here to get away for our "babymoon". We were put in the room "Pomo" which is more like a little house with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and our favorite, our own private hot tub. Our dog loved the backyard and we loved the views of the property. The staff was amazing putting freshly baked cookies and a bottle of apple cider to toast with. Our dog even got superb treatment with a doggie bowl filled with cookies, and cute little poop bags for his leash. We had breakfast at the inn's restaurant Circa 62 which was delicious and the staff was wonderful. We sat and enjoyed watching the ocean and they even put out food for the little critters so you can watch the birds and chipmunks eat while you do. We cannot wait to come back to again and we would recommend this place to everyone!!

We found a room (Point Cabrillo) at Inn at Schoolhouse Creek after a last minute decision to visit Mendocino area for our 1st anniversary. We arrived after the check-in time, but were greeted with an envelope with a map and keys inside. The lamps were on in the room, fire going and cookies waiting! Nice welcome after a long drive. The first night was incredibly peaceful! Quiet, other than the faint sound of crashing waves and the occasional car passing by. The wood burning stove was cozy. Bedding is pretty and comfortable. Private bath! Water pressure was sufficient. There are robes available in the bathroom, recommended use is for the oh-so-chilly walk back to your room from the hot tub. Our first morning, we went to the restaurant for breakfast. They offer a complimentary breakfast: fruit, granola, oatmeal, pastries. We opted for the paid breakfast. Husband had the daily special: Corned Beef Hash! Fantastic! I had a made- to-order omelet. Delicious! We had a nice view of the ocean and the multitude of wildlife being fed outside. Our 2nd night was slightly less peaceful; the inn was full. More people moving around. Thankfully our room was on the end of the building; we only shared a wall with a bathroom. Could hear the bathroom fan running for extraordinary lengths of time, but it wasn't too bothersome. Deck outside is not private. There was merely a lattice 'fence' between our seating area and the next. Some nice vine plants would be nice growing up the lattice. It was too cold to enjoy the outdoor space, but would be nice for a cup of tea and a good book in the warmer months. The staff is fantastic! Everyone is friendly & helpful!
