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.

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.

So glad we found this cute little b&b tucked back in the woods. The house was clean, quiet and 2 minutes from town. The breakfast was amazing and the staff very nice. If we ever make it back to Mendo, we would stay there again in a second!

Spent 3 wonderful nights at the Mendocino Farmhouse over Labor Day weekend. Margie was welcoming and friendly without being too intrusive. Her freshly prepared, organic breakfasts were delightful. My morning coffee was enjoyed in the front garden basking in sun and enjoying the flowers in full bloom. I would definitely return to this B&B.

The room was located in a barn, rustic and charming to be sure, but also a bit creaky. Little room for toiletries in the bathroom and no dresser drawers for clothes, so also a bit spartan. The adjoining garden was nice, but the garden chairs were too dirty to sit in. Value for the money? Well, everything in Mendocino is expensive, so I suppose so.

What a great place to stay, and far cheaper than anything else in the area! Room was cozy and clean. Property was beautiful. Sunshine in the morning was amazing - especially since in Mendocino and on the coast just a few miles away it was totally foggy all day. And Margie's breakfasts were sooo good!

After the long and winding road trip out to Mendocino, The Farmhouse was a welcomed sight! Nestled in the beautiful trees this B&B had it all. We were greeted at the door by the owner,Margie, who was very pleasant and she got us settled right away. Our room was charming. It was not covered in grandmas old wall paper but instead has a comtempary country feel to it. The bathroom was huge and well stocked. The little porch was nice to relax on and read a book while listening to all the birds and wind rustling in the trees. The king bed was so comfortable. I loved how it was built in with reading lamps on each side and also had place to plug in your cell phone and put you book and glasses next to the bed. We were glad the breakfast was not served at the crack of dawn because we slept so soundly and did not have to rush. We were enticed to breakfast with the wonderful aromas drifting into our room. I think the gal who made and served our delicious breakfast was Bessie and she was a delight! She was so informative about the area and gave us some good ideas about what to do and see. She had our table set in a darling window area looking out to the beautiful garden as she served the yummy breakfast she had just made. There was plenty of great coffee and fresh squeezed OJ and she offered seconds on the orange pancakes but we were too full! The one thing I would have liked is a smaller amount of pancakes and either an egg or fruit to go with the breakfast. After breakfast we took a walk around the lovely gardens and meadow area and Bessie let us peak into the two rooms in the barn. The were awesome. When we return we will book one of the barn rooms with a fireplace and both of those rooms have private baths. Sadly we had to leave the Farmhouse after only one night. We do plan on returning and spending a few nights there. It is really a wonderful retreat from the busy life's we all live!

We were very comfortable and happy here. It was peaceful, homey and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was not fancy but traditional with a nice modern twist. An overall good, family-friendly place. Warning: there was no AT&T cell phone service as of summer of 2013 (I believe Verizon only).
5 su agosto 21, 2013
We loved the Mendocino Farmhouse and would definitely go back. It's just a short drive to town and was much cheaper than other B&Bs. Margie is a fantastic hostess and cook! This is a beautiful place to relax. Highly recommended.

This was a last minute decision to visit Mendocino and Ft. Bragg and I found this online. Margie is a wonderful host and engages each of her guests. Her breakfasts are filling and served between 8:45 - 10:00. We had wheat blueberry pancakes with bacon on one day, and an omelet with melon the next. She has 4 tables for two that she sets up for breakfast. The grounds are very relaxing with plenty of outside chairs to relax and enjoy the quiet surroundings. There is a living area to relax in that has a small library if you wish to read. The only suggestion I could make is if everyone ate at the same table it would provide an opportunity for us to have conversation with the other guests.

Traveling two hours north to stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast was definitely worth it. Quiet and peaceful with a friendly dog named Sage that walks with you around the lot. The room was comfortable and Marge provided us with all the amenities a typical "hotel room" would offer: a coffee machine with a jar of coffee and all the works, complimentary toiletries, and fresh towels and bed made each morning. The wardrobe even had hangers in it! Overall our stay couldn't have been made more comfortable or rewarding. This place is truly a sight for sore eyes. The farmhouse even has handmade jewelry and other memorabilia to sell as well as its award-winning jams. Be warned, there are a lot of biting mosquitos around the farmhouse and the hammock so bring bug spray. The only downside to this trip was that we did not stay long enough to have another delicious omelette for breakfast! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone :)

My wife & I have stayed at several B&B's in Mendocino over the years. We like the Farm House the best, it's very relaxing, breakfast is always good and the Margie the owner is a wonderful hostess. We last visited for our 44th anniversary in July and we will return for my wife's birthday in October.

We loved our room at the Mendocino Farmhouse, and the grounds are beautiful. You could relax here all day and never feel the need to leave. We would definitely return!

We had a nice 3 nights stay in the Cedar room. The room was clean, room service was good & very punctual. The fireplace in the room was nice. The entire location of the farmhouse was something we really liked. It's kind of hidden in the redwood forest & unless you drive inside, you won't realize there's something like this. The breakfast was decent, but liked the way it was cooked & served by Margie every morning during our stay. Initially I thought the price might be a little higher, but after staying we think it's value for money primarily because of it's location & the way it's maintained. I would recommend this farmhouse & would like to go back given a chance.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Mendocino Farmhouse B&B while exploring the northern CA coast. It is close enough to Mendocino to be very convenient to the village and coast, but tucked away in the redwoods as a tranquil and relaxing retreat. Where else can you fall asleep to the croaking frogs in the nearby pond and wake up to the clucking of the hens who have contributed to a delicious breakfast?
3,4 su giugno 05, 2013
We loved this place - quiet and remote and beautiful and among the redwoods yet very close to town. Our room was private with views to the woods. Very nice place. Only thing we didn't like was that there was no main breakfast table where everyone could eat together and get to know each other - only small tables for 2 or 3. That might be good for some, but we really wanted to get to know others. Also one of the breakfasts was not too exciting for us, although it tasted fine - pancakes and bacon.

The inn keeper Marggie met me at the door and was very welcoming. I loved the land and the coziness. The breakfast Margie made the next day was great! She was kind without being intrusive.. Because it was winter she gave me a great price.

Beautiful place in the middle of the redwoods, but 10 min away from Mendocino. We stayed at the Cedar room in the barn, and it is a very cozy room with fireplace. Breakfasts were great, home backed by the owner, frequently using their own eggs. The only thing to improve is that they do not have wifi in the barn rooms (they've got it in the other tooms), and their is no cell coverage from AT&T in the area.

This was the second time we have stayed at the Farmhouse and again it was a wonderful relaxing time. I love that the property is so beautiful and quiet. The breakfast in the mornings were wonderful. We stayed in the Pine room this time and really enjoyed having the fireplace, it adds such warmth to the room. If you are thinking about the possibility of staying here, please do, you will not be disappointed. Thank you again for a wonderful stay! Paul & Roberta

Our weekend at the farmhouse was just what we needed. It was so quiet and relaxing. No TV was great. My husband and I caught up on our busy lives by just talking for hours. The rooms are great, the food was wonderful and Sage, the dog, was a great addition.

I've stayed here twice now, both times in Karin's Room, amd LOVE it!! When you drive up to her house you are immediately welcomed by an adorable little white fence surrounding a cute little garden. Her golden labrador often greets you here too! There is even a porch with a little white swing. The house is 2 stories with some rooms on each level, and all with private baths (but one room has the bath across the hall). Karin's room is large, has a very comfortable queen bed, small couch & coffee table, and in-room private bath (or shower I should say) with sink/vanity in the bedroom corner. The decor is typical farmhouse style, not the antiquated victorian style found in many other B&Bs I've stayed at. Breakfast is always AMAZING! I've had Marge's baked eggs, french toast, quiche, homemade blackberry muffins, and homemade granola. Guests sit in pairs at tables scattered throughout her beautifully arranged & decorated living room & dinning room, or you can eat out on the large patio overlooking a lovely garden. I enjoy walking around outside in the afternoon. There are often deer grazing in her lawn, and she lets the chickens out to eat in the afternoon in her personal fenced-in garden across the driveway from the B&B. It's incredibly peaceful & relaxing. The town center of Mendicino is a quick 5min drive away, so the location can't be beat. For the price, it's really a great value, and I can't wait for my next visit!

Beautiful open space in the redwoods. Charming gardens, comfortable quiet rooms, excellent breakfasts with fresh fruit at the peak of ripeness, wonderful baked goods and something from Marge's garden included at every breakfast. Excellent host. We felt very much at home and would most definitely come back. We even saw deer in the meadow one morning!
4,8 su agosto 07, 2012
As we are driving in, we come face to face with a small deer. It just looked at us and went back to eating the grass. Cute, clean little house in the woods with lots of flowers. Very inviting main room. Had a binder of menus from different restaurants in the area which helped us decide where to go for dinner. Quiet and cool at night. Innkeeper was very friendly and made a great breakfast. Want to get away from it all, this is the place.

We were pleasantly surprised with this B and B. The room was amazing (The Cedar Room) and the ground were very peaceful and everything we wanted them to be. Nestled in the woods quite and secluded. Breakfast was fantastic. I would highly recommend staying here in place of the over priced B and B's near the ocean.

My husband and I loved our relaxing and romantic get away in the middle of the redwoods. We arrived in the dark and the drive was a little spooky through the forest, but once the sun came out the next day we realized what a beautiful setting it really was. The breakfast was superb each morning and Marge was a wonderful hostess. I would recommend this place again and again. We plan on going back next year.

Had a wonderful time in Mendocino at the Farm House B & B. Only complaint would be that the room had no chairs to sit in, you had to sit n the bed to put your shoes on, also the lighting was very poor in both the room and the common area if you decided to read. Breakfasts were great and Margie is a great host along with Sage & Judge. We would stay here again however I will bring a reading light.
4,6 su settembre 25, 2011
We've stayed here twice, both times in the cedar room, and it's the perfect little hideaway for anybody looking to explore the Mendocino coastline while trying to avoid the atmosphere of a noisy (and ridiculously overpriced) hotel. The rooms are small, but cozy, and ours came with fresh cut flowers, a clawfoot tub, plenty of tea/cocoa, plus a wood-burning fireplace with plenty of fuel to keep a crackling blaze going all night long. Home-cooked breakfast is served between 8AM and 10AM (remember to set your alarm, since it's so quiet, it's very easy to oversleep), and the friendly innkeepers will show you a book of menus from nearby restaurants to take care of your other meals. There are also two very affectionate dogs, Sage and Judge, who will follow you around and play fetch if you start to feel lonely or miss your own pets. You won't find a TV, microwave, or minibar anywhere on the premises, but if you're looking to get away from everyone else and just spend a quiet night away with your honey... then this is the spot.

We spent 5 blissful nights here and came away totally relaxed and satisfied! Margie is a lovely hostess and generously relinqueshes her beautiful and comfortable home entirely to her guests. We stayed in Elizabeth's room which has its own private outdoor seating, a most comfortable bed and very large bathroom. It's the only bedroom downstairs in the house, quiet & private. Breakfast is served until 10 AM, so we were able to sleep in everyday without missing the fabulous breakfast, usually fresh eggs from Margie's chickens and wonderful homemade jam. We spent hours eah day reading on the beautiful deck overlooking the meadow, forest & pond before going out into civilization. There are beautiful flower gardens and frequent deer sitings. Although there's WiFi and a land (phone) line for guests, the quiet is almost deafening. Every nook & cranny is impossibly clean, inside and out. I can't recommend it enough and we'll surely return.

If you have never slept in a redwood forest, you should come to Mendocino Farmhouse B&B. It was a quiet I have never experienced and my husband and I slept very well. Then we enjoyed a full hot breakfast each of the 2 mornings we were there and enjoyed seeing the blooms in the gardens, conversation with the other guests, and the lovely clearing where this inn and its barn and henhouse are located.

The room was absolutely perfect and the residence setting was hidden and romantic. However, we felt like an imposition inside a private residence the entire time. We missed that "made with love" aspect of the breakfast (cold coffee, basic spread). I asked myself "I set my alarm for "this"!?! Overall, we found ourselves wishing we had stayed 2 miles west on the ocean.

It was so quiet and peaceful - a true getaway. Beautiful gardens, surrounded by forest. My specific dietary needs were graciously accommodated. The breakfasts were delicious.

I would definitely stay there again, and I'd recommend it to friends.

We loved it!! The best part was the location...it's close to everything but far away from the tourist bustle. The gardens were SPECTACULAR. I can only imagine the amount of love and care that goes into them. We sat out in the garden watching the deer in the meadow in the afternoon sun. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable, the wood burning fireplace was great, there were fresh flowers (from the garden) in the room, Margie was wonderful, there was a small frig in the room, the food was good (fresh eggs!). We had room in the parking spot to leave our kayaks and bikes and didn't have to worry about anyone stealing them. The room was a little smaller than we anticipated and the bathroom fixtures were a bit low (I'm 6 feet tall), but definately a place to go back to.

Who'd want to stay in a barn??? WE WOULD again!! Instead of the main house, we chose a room in the ivy covered barn for privacy and got so much more. Very charming with hardwood - floor to ceiling, wood burning fireplace, set in its own private garden, claw foot tub and shower, and all only ten feet from car which saved my back too. This is what a B&B should be. Margie is a wonderful host and cooks with fresh herbs and eggs from her own chickens. Her little helpers are the best too. Breakfast was on a sunny patio under the redwoods. Set back from the ocean, this gem is protected from the wind and away from the heavy coast fog. It's only five minutes from town and a great value. We'll be back soon. Thanks Margie.

The place is very beautiful and we would have definitly gone back if it wasn't for the innkeeper, so was never there and very unwelcoming. The helper who made us breakfast every morning was great.

For our anniversary my wife and I stayed in the cedar room at the farmhouse. This B&B is secluded from downtown Mendocino, and felt like a relaxing retreat. The orange wheat pancakes and homemade seasoned scrambled egg breakfast was amazing. Definitely worth it!
