Loved the Osprey room!

4.4 on April 12, 2016

I was skeptical about this place, especially given the price, but we wanted to spend a week on the coast so decided to split our time between Brewery Gulch and another B&B we had stayed at before. Both were nice places, but the Brewery Gulch is the one I'd want to go back to. First of all, our (Osprey) room had a great view. Beach access is awkward, but the view was really nice. Wild turkeys and deer on the property made us feel like we were really getting out of the city. Wi-fi was good and they had a bunch of games and magazines and such downstairs, as well as free phones in the rooms. I thought them offering dinner was a gimmick before I tried it, and I've had some very disappointing B&B breakfasts, but both breakfast and dinner turned out to be excellent. The breakfast was a true made-to-order breakfast, with specials varying by the day. The dinner was a buffet emphasizing local produce and some terrific desserts, but with plenty of protein as well (salmon, pork, and something else I've forgotten). There was plenty of food at both meals. I had thought we would be eating dinner out, but we never did. So while the Inn is fairly expensive, it becomes much better of a value when you realize that you're getting two meals every day. Their dinner approach also meant that we didn't need to leave the Inn except for lunch, when we were often out anyway. It's really nice not to have to drive somewhere for dinner. Finally, I'm not much of a people person, but we met some other couples at dinner and really enjoyed talking with them. There's a very friendly atmosphere to the place. I'd love to go back!


2nd Visit - What A Wonderful Spot

5 on February 27, 2015

I was so lucky to have found the Brewery Gulch the first time and yet the second reminded me how wonderful it truly is. Nestled among the trees for privacy there is nothing like sitting on the deck and enjoying the ocean views. A relaxing spot to wind down your day. What caring staff and owner! They are present and making sure each detail is looked after – I must say I’ve been to many Mendocino B & B’s and this far surpasses all others. From the welcoming smile to the beautiful breakfasts and intriguing winee hour – the light dinner was so fresh, using all local and organic ingredients. Their wine lists are amazing – my favorites being the north coast selection of Pinot Noirs and Red Blends. Our room was the Manzanita – a quiet corner on the ground floor with private chairs just outside our glass door. Beautiful bath and the room and bed so comfortable. Must be those great linens. I agree with all other reviewers, don’t hesitate to book here – Can’t say enough about this wonderful inn.


Fabulous!

I had the opportunity to stay at the Brewery Gulch Inn last week and it exceeded all my expectations! The property is beautiful and comfortably appointed. The staff is very professional, especially Laura at the front desk and Steven, the General Manager. The chef is wonderful, cooked to order breakfasts - you have to try the "Millionaire’s Bacon" and a wine hour with a full dinner. A true gem on the Pacific.


My Surprise Birthdeay Getaway!

My wonderful husband surprised me with a getaway to Mendocino, and what a fun time we had! Guy is the Host with the MOST! He has made this INN a home for everyone who stays here. Beautiful views, birds, WONDERFUL food, we made friends, drank champagne, stayed up late and laughed for hours! You are close to town, hiking trails or just relax and enjoy the beautiful birds. Happy hour is to die for! The rooms are cozy, luscious and comfortable. We tried to talk him into putting in a bocce ball court.....then this would truly be heaven! Paula Rogers


First class all the way1

We recently spent 5 nights in the Osprey room at the Brewery Gulch Inn. The facility was absolutely superb. From the setting on the Pacific coastline to the wonderful breakfast every morning to the tasty treats and wine each night, we could not have asked for more. If you are looking for a luxurious, relaxing getaway, the BGI is for you.

My husband and I had recently stayed at the Brewery Gulch Inn for a week. We loved every minute of it. The owner and staff are a friendly and competent group; the location is great, the rooms comfortable and luxurious. We hope to be back and enjoy it again.

One fo the nicest places we have ever stayed. The entire experience was first class all the way--food, rooms, service. Staff is extremely knowledgeable about the area and offered many "off the beaten path ideas". We were a family of 5 with 3 kids and everyone had a great time. Highly recommmended.


Perfect Mendocino!

5 on July 15, 2012

We cannot say enough about this property...it was a perfect place to stay while exploring the Mendocino area. We usually don' t stay at the same place again as we like to explore new places but this is definitely a do-over for us. We stayed in the Osprey room and it was perfect! Breakfast and the light dinner buffet were so satisfying, we never ate anywhere else! Definitely add this to your must-stay list! :)
