    Garden Cottage

    We had a late arrival check-in and only stayed one night, although I wished we had stayed longer. There was a doggie Arrival Package awaiting our pup in the cottage as well a small bottle of wine for us. We stayed in the garden cottage which was right next to the doggie meadow with a private porch. It was very quiet and quaint with a beautiful morning view of the coast from the observation deck. Our pup loved the private deck as much as we did. They we very accommodating and respectful.

    Adorable Place & Perfect for Pets

    Wonderful staff. Charming, well-maintained buildings on beautiful grounds. The cottages and rooms are so cute and there are cozy spots all around the property for relaxing -- with people or pooches. The beautiful gardens, roses and lawns back against the forest and offer ocean views. Our room came with beds, towels, and sheets just for the dogs, plus treats and poop bags. The absolutely delicious restaurant, Circa '62, has a cute patio where you can dine with your dog, or even take him inside. The most fun is that you can order steak and eggs for your dogs from their special dog menu! I'd definitely stay again, with or without my dogs, because it's such a nice little spot.

    Great Pet Friendly Place

    Travelling up the coast with our little bullies and we decided to stop in mendocino.
    We spotted this place on Hwy1 and saw the vacancy sign and gave it a shot.
    We stayed in Pacific View . it was a great room on an upper floor with a view of the ocean and the meadow.
    Great pet amenities and a really comfy bed. We'll be back

    I'm not sure who had more fun!

    We stayed at the Inn a few days ago and our big dog Zoe was treated like a princess (I was treated pretty well too).

    Big denim dog bed, homemade dog cookies that the chef/owner makes with bacon drippings, her own frisbee and poop bag dispenser, dishes, towels and a blanket.

    We got a hot tub, a tower to watch the sunsets and a cute little courtyard next to a great little cottage!

    Breakfast was amazing and they had a "Stop, Drop and Drool" menu for our girl! She suggests the Rufus Specail

    Very Disappointed

    Very disappointed! We thought it was going to be much closer to the ocean (you can barely see the ocean and they are on the other side of a highway with no apparent beach access since all land on the ocean side appeared to be private property). We got none of the pet items listed (towel, bowls, pet bath, pet magazine, pet blanket, treat bag, ball). We thought it would be a quaint cottage, but were very disappointed, The price is much too high for the experience,

    Very Pet Friendly Place

    We just stayed here for the third time earlier this month. It's a great place that fits our needs. Some of the units have kitchens which we appreciate since our dog has special food requirements. When you check in you're given a doggie basket with a dog bowl, biscuit, frisbee, sheet, and poop bags. There's an on-site doggie bath area and a big meadow behind the housing units where your dog can run and play. The staff is very pet friendly and gives out belly rubs free of charge. The staff is also knowledgable about nearby parks/beaches/restaurants that are dog friendly. This last visit, Rowyn, one of the front desk staff, sent us to a wonderful little park where we got to walk Wilson among the redwoods. We're already planning our next visit.
