  • The Victorian Dining Room

Beautifully appointed with antiques for an intimate and elegant dinner.

Dinner 6:00pm-9:00pm Sunday-Thursday

6:00pm-9:30pm Friday & Saturday

“Guests register at a teller’s cage from an old Kansas bank and congregate for drinks in a front parlor filled with antiques, among them a two hundred year old polished steel fireplace of Dutch origin. A remarkable stained-glass dome was installed over the bar…believed to be a Tiffany… replete with leaded windows and Oriental rugs (it) evokes the Victorian era perfectly…Dinner can be very pleasant. Desserts tend to be all-American and irresistible. We were won over by the individual deep-dish pies. Lunch is very popular and brings forth an appealing roster of dishes. Another welcome change is the wine list.”

A Beautiful Trip!

To reach the Mendocino Hotel, plan on a 3.5 hour drive from the San Francisco Airport, or a 2.5 hour drive from the Santa Rosa Airport.  From Santa Rosa, stay on Highway 101 to Cloverdale, then turn West on Highway 128 which wanders through beautiful Anderson Valley. There are several wineries along the way which offer wine tasting, and the scenery is breathtaking as you meander through the last 13 miles of tall redwoods before you reach the ocean. Then head north on Highway One ten miles to Mendocino Village.  The hotel is in  the center of town at 45080 Main Street.

Things To Do on the Mendocino Coast



Mendocino Coast Vacation IdeasVacation Ideas

  1. Abalone Diving -- The rocky and scenic Mendocino coastline features extensive kelp forests providing excellent abalone and fish habitat.
  2. Gardens, Public & Private -- Many inns, shops, galleries and restaurants keep charming vegetable and flower gardens which also delight passersby; the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens are inspiring in all seasons. Two annual spring garden tours show off the best of the coast.
  3. Camping -- Private campgrounds and state parks, beaches and forests -- campers have an enviable array of options from which to choose.
  4. Outdoor Recreation -- Horseback riding on the beach, kayaking to sea caves, cycling to a cliffside picnic, canoeing a river, hiking, visitors are never bored here.
  5. Historic Buildings -- Much of the coast's mid-19th century architecture has landmark status; the entire town of Mendocino is on the National Register of Historic Places. The annual Historic House & Building Tour points admirers in the right direction.
  6. Only-on-the-Coast Events -- The World's Largest Salmon Barbecue. The Mendocino Whale Festival. The Fort Bragg Whale Festival. The Great Rubber Ducky Race. Winesong. Paul Bunyan Days. Plus many, many more, as unusual as they are fun.
  7. Family Fun -- Many of the coast's events and activities are geared for families, and many accommodations welcome kids with open arms.
  8. California Western Railroad's "Skunk Train" -- Let a vintage steam or diesel locomotive take you through the redwoods, as they have done for decades.
  9. Visual & Performing Arts -- The Mendocino Coast has long attracted artists, writers and musicians; a plethora of galleries and performances of the highest caliber are the happy result. Visitors may also sign up for classes at the Mendocino Art Center.
  10. Farmers Markets -- The Mendocino Coast can fill your market basket with fine wine, beer, wild mushrooms, organic produce, cheeses, mustard, kelp pickles, coffee, jellies and many other local delectables. Farmers markets are open spring through fall and offer a colorful and delicious sightseeing option.
  11. Let's Go Fishing -- From a boat on the ocean, from the bank of a creek, there are plenty of Big Ones out there just waiting for visiting anglers.
  12. Whale Watching -- From November-March, watch the gray whale migration from land or sea. In March, celebrate the leviathans with the Mendocino Whale Festival.
  13. Redwood Legacy -- Lumber barons built many of the coast's towns in the last century, and the timber business is still a strong presence today. Start with a visit to the Guest House Museum in Fort Bragg to explore the redwood legacy.
  14. Luxurious Mendocino Coast -- A pampering spa, a private, cliffside cottage furnished in antiques, stylish shops and's easy to indulge any first-class urging on the Mendocino Coast.
  15. Coastal Romance/Honeymoon -- With a cozy inn, crackling in-room fireplace, fine local wine, the roar of the ocean and plenty of solitude, the Mendocino Coast offers couples all that is conducive to romance. There are plenty of memorable spots to hold a wedding as well, and local wedding planners to see to the details.
  16. Pre- or Post-Convention Getaway -- Just an afternoon's drive north of San Francisco via Coast Highway One, the Mendocino Coast is the perfect tag-on to a city convention.
  17. Innovative Restaurants -- Clever chefs are turning out elegant meals in the coast's many restaurants, which range from humble bakeries to trendy "celebrity" spots. Fresh, local ingredients, such as seafood and produce, are frequently featured.
  18. Hollywood Connection -- From East of Eden to The Summer of '42, dozens of movies have been (and continue to be) filmed here. Scouting out the sites of famous scenes is somewhat of a hobby with travelers.
  19. Vacation Rentals Alternative -- Great for families or anyone wanting the convenience of more space and a full kitchen, vacation rentals continue to gain popularity.
  20. Local Products -- Outdoor furniture crafted from regional redwood, fine woodworking pieces, hand-crafted pottery, fabrics, sculpture...there are many made-on-the-coast souvenirs to take home.
  21. Holiday Season Hideaway -- December brings a candlelight tour of bed & breakfast inns, an evening lights parade, festive decorations and a cozy escape from the chaos.

About the Mendocino Coast

Thank you for inquiring about the Magnificent Mendocino Coast. Spectacular ocean views and charming Victorian Villages dot the scenic Mendocino Coastline of Northern California.


The Village of MendocinoMendocino Village is situated on a peninsula and surrounded on three sides by picturesque wildflower covered bluffs and crashing surf. Established in the 1850's, many of the New England style Victorians have been lovingly restored into romantic Bed & Breakfast Inns, world class restaurants and quaint shops.


Noyo Harbor on the Mendocino CoastThe harbor town of Fort Bragg is best known for the Skunk Train that takes its riders on a trip through the redwoods and back in time. The harbor bustles with activity from fishermen bringing in their daily haul for the local restaurants and charter boats that offer fishing and whale watching adventures. The flower meet the sea at the Botanical Gardens, a flower lovers paradise.


Little RiverJust two miles south, you'll discover the relaxed atmosphere of Little River. Combining a beautiful coastline and Fern Canyons with fabulous lodging and restaurants, you've found the perfect getaway from the hectic pace! For fun, you can snorkel off Van Damme, stroll along sandy beaches or enjoy a round of golf with an ocean view.


Elk CoastThe quaint seaside village of Elk is the best-kept secret on the Mendocino Coast. The spectacular views from the oceanfront Bed & Breakfast Inns and cottages are absolutely breathtaking and inspiring. This picturesque hamlet perched upon the bluffs, offers everything from an upscale wine & martini bar to an Irish pub and dinner house. Plus, exquisite ocean view dining to casual Cafe's with California cuisine along Mendocino's South Coast you'll discover Manchester and a Beautiful lighthouse in Point Arena.


The Mendocino Coast is one of the most beautifully romantic areas of California. we look forward to seeing you on the Coast!

The Mendocino Coast covers a large area (north to south) and is comprised of many towns and villages. Listing directions and mileage to each of them would be impractical; we have chosen, instead, to show them all as leading to Mendocino, a central point on the long coastal line. Reader-travelers may adjust their particular destinations -- north or south -- to the Mendocino location shown in the directions below.

Towns or villages north of Mendocino are: Caspar (4 miles); Fort Bragg (8 miles); Cleone (13); Westport (24). South of Mendocino are: Little River (3 miles); Albion (7); Elk (18): Irish Beach (22); Manchester (28); Point Arena (33); Anchor Bay (43); Gualala (46).
