1- or 2-Night Stay at The Mendocino Hotel – Northern California in Mendocino, CA

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013
1- or 2-Night Stay at The Mendocino Hotel - Northern California in Mendocino, CA

Quaint Hotel with Manicured Gardens and Pacific Ocean Views

Perched high atop a bluff, The Mendocino Hotel - Northern California enjoys unhindered panoramas of the Pacific Ocean. Inside, a Tiffany-style stained-glass dome lights the lobby lounge, setting the tone for the collection of antiques and fine furnishings throughout the hotel. There’s a Louis XIV–style love seat in the lobby, and Persian runners lead toward the lobby lounge, where you’ll find a carved wooden gargoyle.

Luxury garden rooms peer out toward the property’s lush gardens, and some of these rooms have partial ocean views. Each garden room has an Italian-marble fireplace as well.

In the Victorian dining room, seasoned chefs prepare a selection of natural, organic entrees with ingredients sourced from local farmers. You can also have a casual breakfast and lunch in the Garden Room, famous for its olallieberry pie, or you can snack on small bites at the wine and tapas bar and scope out wildlife on the hotel’s 2 acres of sustainable gardens.

Mendocino, California: New England Look-Alike on Scenic Pacific Headlands

In the mid-19th century, Mendocino rose to prominence as a redwood-logging hub along California's northern coast, attracting a number of lumberjacks from New England. These West Coast pioneers brought East Coast architecture with them, building their new homes in the Victorian and saltbox styles. The town has such a New England look that it stood in for a Maine fishing village during the filming of the TV series Murder, She Wrote. For a peek at some of these picturesque old buildings, head to the Ford House, which serves as the official Visitor Information Center of Mendocino Village, and the Kelley House Museum, which preserves 19th-century photographs and furniture in a house built in 1861.

In the 1950s, when it was in danger of becoming a ghost town, Mendocino was thrust back into the spotlight thanks to painter Bill Zacha’s Mendocino Art Center. Still open today, the art center has taken advantage of its scenic setting along the town’s coastline, which has been the inspiration for several watercolor and oil canvases. A quick stroll south will bring you to one such scenic spot, Mendocino Headlands State Park, where waves crash along carving arches, grottos, and stony bluffs.
