"Beautiful setting--lots of privacy!!"
08/18/14 Donoghue4 San Carlos, California, United States
If you are in search of a beautiful B & B in a great location then Glendeven Inn will hit the mark. The room we stayed in (The Carriage House) was big, beautiful and very private!! The grounds are really lovely and well maintained..and it truly is nice to wander out into the llama pasture!! Upon arrival, the lovely woman at the wine bar poured the two of us very needed glasses of wine! That certainly set a positive tone for our stay. There were a few things that occurred that make it a bit difficult to give this place a 5 star rating. When we booked the room (via their website), we filled in the "Special Requests" section, asking that, due to allergies, the feather mattress pad be removed prior to making the bed for us. This was not done--and it was not at all difficult for us to remove it---but, in my opinion, if you're going to ask for special requests..then it is best to act on those--otherwise it's better to just not ask. The second day there, upon returing to our room in the late afternoon, we were suprised to see that the housekeeper had left cleaning rags on the floor. She also removed the used coffee cups (that were with the coffee maker) and did not replace them..and it looked like she had not even entered the bathroom. It kind of seemed that she had been interrupted while cleaning our room, and then forgot to return to finish up. Again..not a big deal..and I'm sure if we mentioned this to the staff it would have been addressed--but...not worth taking the time to do so--in my view, it's not our job on vacation to give feedback on staff. The final, minor..picky thing--is that this room is advertised as having beverages stocked in the fridge. We were pretty surprised that the "beverages" stocked were 6 cans of soda. Kind of was expecting something nicer--ice tea, lemonade, juice---but soda? Not our thing! But..ending on a high note--the most important thing for us was to find a serene, clean, lovely place to get away from our day to day crazy lives--and, the Glendeven was absolutely spot on!!

We were married at Glendeven twenty years ago and it was a wonderful B and B back then. It has only gotten better. The gardens are beautiful, the room has been upgraded, and the staff is friendly and helpful. What more can you ask for!!!
"Peaceful Retreat in Mendocino"

We spent one night at the Glendeven Inn where attention to detail was impeccable. Our room, the East Farmington,had a fireplace and sitting area, faced the garden and you could see a little of the ocean from one window. Clean, beautiful and so peaceful. I was looking forward to seeing the llamas but did not see them. We did feed the chickens with the chicken feed provided. Hot breakfast included and delivered to our room at 9 am. Coffee, fresh-squeezed orange juice, muffin with honey and a small chili quiche, absolutely delicious. They also have a kitchenette in the building for the use of the rooms. Need to reserve very early. Ours was a month ahead and the East Farmington was all they had left. They have a wonderful restaurant but were booked and had to have dinner elsewhere.

We stayed in the Bay View Suite at Glendeven during the Fourth of July holiday. It was cool in the Mendocino area so the fireplace in the suite was perfect and we lit a fire every evening. Each morning from one of the bedroom windows I looked to the Pacific and out over the grounds, waiting for the llamas to be let out of their pen. And at 9A a knock on the door with two breakfast trays. Each day something different and wonderful. We never used the deck because it was too cool. The Inn is immaculate and there's a free wine tasting each evening for the guests. It's well located and easy to go either to Mendocino or down the coast and to Route 128 and the wineries. We enjoyed our stay very much!
"This was a gem."
We stayed here for three nights in July with another couple. The inn had come highly recommended to us, and we weren't disappointed. We had the Bay View suite in the main building. We indeed had a great view of the water from our balcony. (Furniture on the balcony was rather ramshackle, and we moved it with great care.) Our suite was spacious with a wood burning fireplace in the sitting area. There was plenty of firewood and a new fire was set by housekeeping each day. The area is cool enough to warrant a fire, even in July. Breakfast was great, with an egg dish (from the inn's chickens), a baked item like a scone, and a cooked fruit item, like a baked pear. Also freshly squeezed orange juice. There also is a wine hour in the late afternoon with a hot appetizer and several kinds of cookies are always available. We did use the little bag of chicken feed to feed the chickens and we enjoyed wandering in the vegetable garden. We did not take advantage of other amenities, like having a fire in the common area of our building and playing something at the game table, but that's because the weather was good. We did the two shorter hikes that leave from the inn's property, and they were lovely. The innkeepers pay a lot of attention to details which is generally an upside. On the other hand, when they say they are available only certain hours, they mean it. Don't think about trying to check in at 3:59, because check in is at 4. The one thing we regretted was not being able to walk to Little River because Rte. 1 is really narrow and there was little shoulder for safe walking. But that's a small price to pay for being in what is otherwise a great location. And speaking of price, we thought this was a fair price for what we got.

The Glendeven is a lovely Inn. If you looking for a country setting close to the Pacific Ocean this is it. Our room was located in the building directly behind the guest check-in building, He room had a large king siE bed with a table and 2 chairs in the corner with a quiet view of the well kept landscape in the backyar. The rest of the room included 2 large chairs by the wood burning fireplace which makes for a relaxing romantic evening. Next to the living area is the large bathroom which included a stall shower. Breakfast is brought to your room in a basket including some of the farm fresh eggs from the chickens that are located on the property. Games, books and cookies are always available for your enjoyment. Wine tasting and bottles can also be purchased at the Inn in the check-in area. The Glendeven Inn is an excellent relaxing place to getaway too.
"Awesome one-night stay!"
07/14/14 Ray M Moncton, Canada
All the positive reviews of Glendeven are well deserved. The grounds were immaculate, the staff was extremely attentive, positive and pleasant, and the breakfast was fantastic. We stayed in the Eastlin suite which has the hidden door that breakfast is served through and it was spotless and charming. We also chose the meal served across the road at Bistro 150 with wine pairing which was very reasonably priced and delicious. All the food prepared has to be sourced from within 150 miles of the restaurant, hence the name. we were seated farmhouse style with 10 other people and had a wonderful couple of hours chatting and eating a wonderful meal. The area around the inn has lots of different trails that you can explore and there are plenty of other activities to keep you busy as you want to be. We are already thinking of when we can return to the Glendeven but the next time will be for more than one night. Fantastic!
"Sweet little spot"

We had a great time staying at the Glendeven. We stayed in the Carriage House, and enjoyed the spaciousness and privacy. Dinner at Bistro 150 was delicious, although we would have preferred a private table.
"Perfect romantic weekend stay"
07/02/14 alexnj1971 new jersey
My wife and I had the most perfect weekend here. We stayed in the Bayview suite which was extraordinary. Staff is friendly, breakfast is delicious, and the grounds are awesome. The location could not be better as there are amazing state parks and the beautiful little town of Mendocino all minutes away. There are wonderful hikes, short or long, all nearby. We live in faraway New Jersey so we are not around the corner but can't wait to return someday!
"Glendeven : As Always a Beautiful Spot Along The Mendocino Coast."

Stayed at the Carriage House Years Ago and Had a Beautiful Anniversary . This Year We Returned For Our 15th Anniversary & Stayed In The Beach House for the Weekend. And again We Were Very Happy With Glendeven . The only regret was there were no screens on any windows . So we were unable to Open the windows due to the pesky Mosquitos .
