Wish I could live here!

4.6 on August 17, 2014

Mendocino is a beautiful place; Agate Cove Inn is a beautiful place to stay in Mendocino. Lovely views, generous and thoughtful amenities, delicious breakfast -- this is everything a B&B should be and you couldn't ask for a more delightful and relaxing experience.


Terrible

1.0 on August 08, 2014

Lastly, my biggest annoyance was their customer service. Less than a week before our trip I was almost killed in a serious traffic collision when I was T-boned on the driver's side door. I was hospitalized for 3 days and suffered a fractured collar bone, three broken ribs, and a concussion. Agate Cove has a strict cancellation policy of 14 days. We tried calling while I was still in the hospital to change(not cancel) our reservation to a later date and they informed us of their policy and that they would open the room up for rent online but if it did not rent out we would still be charged a night for the change. Now I can understand that policy if our reservation was preventing someone else from reserving a room there, but we went on their booking website and they had plenty of vacancy for the nights we booked. For every rule there is an exception. Upon check-in, the man working the desk whom seemed like the same one my wife talked to on the phone, talked to me about my injuries like I twisted an ankle or something. The next day at breakfast he made a comment to my wife that "he doesn't look like he was hurt that bad" in a unkind tone. My wife was an emotional wreck after the accident and came back to the room crying. This comment just ruined the rest of her day. It was obvious to me that they were only considering money and not the comfort of their 'guests'.


35th wedding anniversary trip

4.0 on May 20, 2014

First visit to CA and we happened on this gem via web. Breakfasts were wonderful, host and hostess were very welcoming and accommodating. Our room was nice but beside the main highway, so tad noisy. Wish I could have opened the front windows to allow the wonderful breeze in at night to sleep cooler and hear the ocean. Loved sitting on the front lawn and watching the ocean and enjoyed the sunsets. Hope to return.


A Great Experiance

4.2 on August 09, 2013

My husband and I stayed for a long weekend and I can't say enough nice things about our trip. If you are looking to really get away and have some relaxing down time this is the place. Rodger one of the inn keepers was so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The grounds are beautiful and the breakfasts were great. We have never stayed at a B&B before but we will be coming back to this one. It was a perfect place to slow down and enjoy the views and if you like your privacy their is plenty of it with the separate cottages. I can't wait for our next visit.


Beautiful spot

3.6 on June 03, 2013

We spent two nights here while leisurely making our way down the coast, it's a beautiful spot with magnificent scenery, great walks & lots of wildlife. The inn is delightful, a very comfortable room & good breakfasts. The innkeepers were away but the interim manager was very nice, as was her sister who was there to help & made fabulous chocolate, chocolate chip, cranberry cookies - they had to be tasted to be believed! We would definitely go back & heartily recommend it.


Honeymoon stay

5 on October 25, 2012

This place was the most romantic destination I have ever been to. From your room you can hear the breaking waves and feel the cool breeze. The room we stayed in (Obsidian) had a 2 person tub, fireplace, comfy bed, board games, and sherry. The breakfasts that they make for you in the morning were so amazing I would have payed $25 for them at a restaurant. The scenery is too beautiful to describe. One of the days we were there we watched the sunset over the ocean cliffs from the hot tub while drinking lavender tea that they had made for us. The owners were extremely friendly and gracious. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a peaceful and adventurous vacation spot.


The Perfect relaxing getaway!

3.8 on August 25, 2012

Roger and Laraine went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Our first trip to the Northern California coast and it was truly memorable. The entire experience began with and was magnified by the stay at the Agate. Outstanding!


out of this world wonderfull.

5 on August 04, 2012

our second stay was as magical as our first. some things never change and roger and loraine have remained as great as inn keepers as two years ago. perfect getaway. romantic, relaxing, soothing... the views, the breakfest, the bed, the hot tub, the yard, the plants, the service, were going back for sure


We also love the view.

Blissfully Beautiful

4.4 on November 28, 2011

Add a beautiful site with fantastic innkeepers and divine breakfasts and what d'ya get? A perfect stay at a perfect B&B. I cannot recommend the Agate Cove Inn highly enough -- and much of that is based on the welcoming, warm, intelligent, and generous innkeepers. If only Loraine and Roger could be cloned! Guests feel more like house guests than paying guests. And, so, yes, we will return! And happily so.
