Glendeven Inn @ Mendocino

11/11/2014


While we were in Mendocino we stayed at the Glendeven inn. We love love love staying at B&B's, they are so unique and fun compared to a typical hotel room. 



The B&B was an old farm house built in 1867 on 8 acres of oceanfront land. 



We stayed in "Ettas Suite".  Etta was the daughter of builder who originally built the farmhouse. This house has tons of history, I was a little worried it might be haunted! 


Etta kept a diary for most of her life and they left a copy of it by the fireplace, it was so interesting!


In their farm they have 50 laying hens. They left a cute little bag of food in our room so that we could go out and feed them. They also had llamas, they were so fun to watch!



My favorite part about B&B's are the little details that they always seem to remember, it just feels so much more personal than a standard hotel. We pulled into the B&B and we even had our own parking spot marked with a sign with our name. When we checked into our room they had a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us. fresh baked cookies, a birthday note, fresh flowers and the cute little bag of chicken feed!

Diamonds were not included, Allen got me those pretty little things for my birthday present, I am one lucky lucky lady :)


Our room was huge! It had two different different rooms, the bedroom with a fireplace and a little sitting area, and then another larger living room. My favorite part was the huge balcony with views of the ocean and llamas. 


B&B's are a bit more expensive than hotels but breakfast is included so I think it ends up evening out! We enjoyed a three course breakfast each morning delivered right to our door. I thought it was really neat that they used eggs from their farm every morning. 



From 5:30-6:30 every evening they host free wine & hors d'oeuvres hour. The wine bar[n] was beautiful. It was really nice to walk over and enjoy the local wines and food. 



We had such an amazing time at Glendeven Inn, I hope we get to go back sometime!
