"Excellent attention to detail"
12/25/14 zuttoman Seattle, Washington
They had our names on a parking space nearest our cabin; they had fresh-baked cookies and sherry in the common room; breakfast was tasty and thoughtful (i.e. not just the normal pancakes/french toast); the fire was set in the fireplace ready for us to strike a match. And the decor was nicer than the normal B&B kitch. They require a two-night minimum. I would say that is is the MINIMUM amount of time that you'd want to stay there. We rushed it and regretted not being able to do all of the hikes or sit in the common room watching the ocean and reading.

We had a wonderful stay at Glendeven Inn. We were there during the week and loved how quiet it was. We stayed in Etta's Suite, and we enjoyed having the fireplace, the separate sitting room, the views of the coast and llamas, and the balcony to take in the beautiful, peaceful surroundings. The downstairs general living room of the farmhouse was a great place to drink our morning coffee and read the paper/tablet. It looks out over the same view as Etta's Suite, and presents a close-up of the local birds that eagerly visit the bird feeder. The 3-course breakfasts were absolutely delicious, with unique (and farm-fresh) egg dishes, and the evening hors-d'oeuvres were very tasty - next time we go back, we will be sure to stay on a night that dinner is available (if the breakfasts were an indicator of how good the dinners are, we want to try them!). We really liked the right level of interaction with other guests, as the community spaces (farmhouse living room, wine bar[n]) allowed us to interact with others without imposing it. The fact that the delicious breakfast was delivered to our room meant we didn't have to socialize with others when we preferred to relax in our own room. The evening wine & hors-d'oeuvres also allowed for a little interaction without constraining us to an entire meal with others. Finally, the personalized parking signs to welcome us when we arrived and to wish us safe travels when we departed were a nice touch.
"Unbelievable stay in Mendocino!"
The Bay Loft room is breath-taking. We had such a wonderful time in Mendocino. Glendeven is a class above, focusing on every detail for your relaxing pleasure. The store is stocked with the most charming items, and the llamas and chickens are really unique. I would love to have a book showing all the unique animals at Glendeven. Our room has a working wood burning fireplace. I felt like I had gone away for a week, and it was only a weekend. Thank you John for doing such a wonderful job. The breakfast was fantastic, and being on your property felt very special. You have a magic spot in Mendocino. Beautifully done! Thank you!

My beloved father passed away a few weeks ago and I knew I had to get away for a while to recharge my batteries. A lady at the zoo, where I volunteer, told me about Glendeven Inn. When she mentioned the llamas, I knew I had to go. My husband and I spent a few days there and it was just a wonderful retreat!! I loved the sheets so much, I bought a set. Great breakfasts delivered to your door and lots of restaurants in the vicinity. I can't wait to go back!! Judy B.
"A quiet, luxurious oasis"
11/14/14 Portia2014 Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina
During an extended visit from Boston with our adult children in the Bay Area, my husband and I decided to take an overnight trip up to Mendocino. The views while driving up CA-1 from Bodega Bay were amazing, and Glendeven Inn was our oasis at the end of the long day's drive. Our room was quiet, clean, and beautifully furnished. The hot breakfast served in our room was delicious. The staff was attentive but not intrusive. The little extras (like fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies waiting for us in our room when we arrived) made us feel pampered. The main inn at Glendeven is a renovated farmhouse, and the fenced-in llama pasture was about 100 ft from our private porch. They are beautiful animals to watch. (We also enjoyed feeding the chickens with the chicken feed the inn provided.) All in all, our stay at Glendeven was relaxing and restorative.

"A Magical Place - Will Be Back"
11/09/14 Anthony C San Francisco, California
This was my second time staying at Glendeven, and I cannot wait for my next visit. My parents were in visiting from NC and I wanted to show them the some of California's wonders -Glendeven/Mendocino was an obvious choice. The rooms at Glendeven are incredibly luxurious without being fussy or pretentious. My parents stayed in the Carriage House suite which is huge and has a gorgeous view of the gardens. The moon is visible from the skylights in this room. I stayed in the East Farmington room which had a wood burning fireplace, and a private deck from which I could watch the llamas graze and enjoy a serene morning meditation. The fresh made breakfasts that are delivered to the rooms are sublime. Kudos to the baker!! The hiking off the property is fantastic. The bluffs right across the street are magical. Also I highly recommend the dinner that is served Thursdays and Saturdays. Everything is sourced within 150 miles from Glendeven and each dish is thoughtfully prepared and full of flavor. Thanks to John, Mike, and everyone at Glendeven!!
"Loved it here. Will come back again!!"
I loved it here. I will come back again. The food is great, fantastic host and stunning location. You are right in the coast outside of Mendocino. Many outdoor activities to be had. The massage was excellent and ask for Paul. Morning breakfast at your door. Matt
"A peaceful quaint get away"
10/30/14 rtearp Portsmouth, Rhode Island
My husband and I just returned form staying at this Inn. It, by far, was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. The rooms were adorable, the staff friendly and very helpful. The amenities were outstanding, including breakfast brought to our door in the morning, cocktails with appetizers in the evening and a special little treat welcoming us on our first nite. We look forward to returning to this wonderful, quaint place.
"Romantic, Restful Rejuvenating"
10/29/14 priya p Mill Valley, California
Look no further for the most romantic setting in Mendocino--- the rooms are inviting and warm. You will rest deeply on the comfortable bed with ultrasoft sheets. The views and hiking trails rejuvenate the spirit--especially after burn-out in the city. John and Adam were perfect hosts and even helped arrange a last minute massage--with Karen. It was seriously one of the best I have received ( I have had many, all over the world). The Mendocino wines just complimented the dreamy and enchanting weekend away from the rat race.
