Mendocino Farmhouse is nestled in a private forest setting just minutes from the village of Mendocino, surrounded by beautiful gardens with open meadows and a pond. The farmhouse is filled with comfortable antique furnishings, wallpapered rooms, flowers, and an eclectic collection of books and music. All rooms have private baths and some have fireplaces. The barn cottage, located across from the farmhouse features two rooms, each with private baths and stone fireplaces in a separate sitting area. Each room has its own private entrance. After you have spent a very restful night's sleep in one of our comfortable rooms you will wake up to a hearty farmhouse breakfast.

Mendocino Farmhouse

4.8 on February 19, 2014

Marge is amazing! The place is so cute and she is just a genuine person that wants you to enjoy your stay. The location is great and the price is wonderful. I would recommend this place to anyone, except I want to keep to ourselves so we can keep going back without having to compete for a room! Ha!

Loved passing through the Redwood lined drive.

We had a lovely four night stay with a different, yummy breakfast each day. My only complaint is that the living room where we ate breakfast was too cold. A fire at night and in the early morning would have made our stay perfect. Thankfully we had a heater in the bedroom. Lovely people and very close to all the beauties of Mendocino and lots of great restaurants. Thank you Marge!

Comfortable, clean, amazing setting, phenomenal host

Comfortable, clean, amazing setting, phenomenal host! The rooms were comfortable and homely. The setting was out of this world, deep in the forest, this beautiful place felt a million miles from civilisation yet we were only 10 minutes from Mendocino. Margie was a great host, welcoming, very friendly and super helpful. Her cooking is superb and we had many lovely conversations at breakfast.

Good experience; OK value

Stayed one night in the Cedar Room and it was as described on the website. I liked that the room was separate from the house and my GF liked the romantic feeling of the stay (rustic feel, wood-burning fireplace, etc.). Breakfast was very good but she did not make us feel comfortable asking for a second glass of juice. Margie runs the place with her husband (though never saw/met him). During all interactions she was nice enough but a bit curt in her interactions (she reacted oddly when I told here we were visiting from Texas; maybe she was wondering why we weren't wearing cowboy hats & boots or maybe was concerned we brought all our guns .. common ignorant perceptions from non-Texans). Clearly, the friendly Texas-style mannerisms/friendliness we take for granted are not a staple of the CA crowd (saw this throughout our visit to the state). Overall, it was a good experience but not a good value.

A very comfortable stay among the redwoods and a great value for the money. Would go back again.
