I have been coming to the Inn for 15 years, first with my dog Keesha, and with my (now dog) Tex, the owners have changed but not the wonderful time I always have here! The Inn is even better now, My guy Tex could lie in the sun all day in front of our cottage which was surrounded by a...

We stayed in the Captains Watch for one night on our road trip. The room is nice but it felt a little tired and there were a few maintenance issues: - Curtains on main door don't close fully and blinds don't close. This is more for privacy than anything else as the room is designed so that you wake with...

The staff was extremely friendly. They upgraded us to the Rose Cottage because they had a cancellation. Our luck! It was perfect for my husband, myself and our 7 month old Labrador. They had tons of places to walk her.

I agree with the reviewer below. My husband surprised us for our 25th and he was very surprised how different it looked compared to website. Our room was in the same building referenced below although we did have nice tall ceilings and lots of natural light. The bummer was he lack of aesthetics outside. A bumpy dusty trail gets you...

This place was a disappointment. It is getting two-stars instead of three because of the glossy-slick website that doesn't represent what the place really looks like. Beware-- there is a reason most of the outdoor photos were taken in the evening or at night. First, the good: The front desk staff was friendly. We stayed in the Whale Watch room...

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek was a perfect getaway and launching pad to beauty of Mendocino County. Our cottage was very comfortable and well-appointed. Breakfast at Circa '62 was a treat, as was taking our dog to Buckhorn cove for her to run off-leash. Easy access to many parks/trails and beaches as well as cute cafes in Mendocino. Neighbors were...

OMG the breakfast here is amazing. Had the special. Kim chee pancakes. So original and delicious. Great staff. Plus the cottage we are in is so sweet. Huge clawfoot tub and fireplace. Comfy bed. They also gave us suggestions of dinner places since they just serve breakfast and lunch.

What is there to say about this place except that it was amazing. I'm a very busy person so I don't usually make time to review businesses but I definitely must recommend the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek if you are going to be staying in or around Mendocino. The accommodations were wonderful, the staff was incredibly warm and helpful, and...
