The Space

Welcome to the Mendocino Coast of California!

Come walk through the garden gate and leave your troubles behind. You will be staying in one of my two private rooms located right on the bluf.


The Ocean View room (appropriately named) has magnificent sweeping views of the Pacific ocean. There is a very comfortable queen size bed with sumptuous linens, beautifully appointed antique furnishings as well as Battenburg Lace curtains. The room comfortably sleeps two people.

You will enjoy your own private bathroom as well as a dining table for two. The room has a television, a gas log fireplace, a bar refrigerator and wifi. For your added comfort, feel free to enjoy our large, panoramic sitting room.

[***If this room is not available please check out the 'Cove View Room' www.airbnb.com/rooms/edit/957858 ***]


You will enjoy Bettilou's personal ambience and service, which compliment the breathtaking views over the Pacific Ocean.

Breakfast is a full affair, served in your room at whatever time you request. Coffee, juices, eggs, home made muffins, home made quiche, and so much more... All you wish for your wake up to a new day on the blue ocean.

At four o'clock every afternoon you will be served wine and hors d'oeuvres in either the charming sitting room (shared with the 'Cove View Room'), overlooking the blue Pacific, or outside on the deck, which has the best views of Old Town Mendocino from across the bay.


The garden is filled with blooming flowers bordering the redwood deck. A brook sings the first note of Welcome as you approach the front door.


With a history steeped in the timber and fishing industries, our area boasts some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in the state, if not the world! As the global community has grown, we have extended our cultural offerings to include art galleries, garden tours, musical events, live theater and fine dining, in addition to ocean based interests such as diving, kayaking, fishing, and of course, the Skunk Train!

Stroll along Ten~Mile Beach, watch the whales during the migration season at McKerricher, or go horseback riding at one of several stables.



Please message me with any additional questions and I will be more than happy to answer you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Right out of a romance novel, the experience was wonderful. Bluff view from the bedroom and porch, delightful hors d'ourves with wine as we enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Breakfast soufflé in the morning, if only Bettilou could have contained the morning fog, but the that added to the experience. Magical!

  • We had a fabulous stay with Bettilou in her B&B. Lovely room, with great view and sweet table for breakfast. Great location, we enjoyed relaxing in her back yard...basically the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful views, lovely garden at entrance. Bettilou made us feel like a welcomed friend...sat and chatted for a few minutes during "Wine Time", just enough to know she was attending to us, but with plenty of space for our privacy. She even called to make dinner reservations for us...with busy life it was a welcome service. Hearty breakfast in morning at the time we specified. We never felt rushed at all, it was perfect for a weekend getaway...next time we will plan to stay longer :)

  • Our host was fantastic. The accommodations were beyond expectations & the location was heavenly! Bettilou is the consummate host.... her "Wine time" was so relaxing & offered time to get to know her & the Mendocino area. The "room" was immaculate, spacious, & had the best view in the world. The breakfast was top shelf & started the day off so nicely. Bettilou has a wonderful sense of humor, is very knowledgeable about the area, & we felt we made a new friend in just 2 days. We will be back!!

  • Bettilou is the most wonderful, magnanimous host on the planet. She and her husband Jim also happen to live on an amazing ocean cliff (literally, ocean mist will reach you) in a beautiful, cozy house of windows that the two of them have built together. Bettilou truly made our experience though! She is filled with endless charm and hilarious stories, (website hidden) on you like family (while of course letting you enjoy the peaceful beauty of the premises and your cozy room). We had a very hard time leaving them!! Thank you Bettilou!!

  • I am officially obsessed with Bettilou's Inn and plan on coming back to stay with her yearly (if not more). I took my fiance here for his 32nd birthday and he was completely blown away. We've driven Hwy 1 a handful of times and always wanted to stay somewhere on a bluff, and Bettilou's Inn was exactly what we had dreamt about. We were able to hang out on the porch, directly on the bluff, before we went to bed (with some wine) and when we got up in the morning (with some coffee). IT WAS PERFECT.

    We got the room with the ocean view, which was absolutely lovely (with DirecTV which was definitely a perk), and, since we were the only guests for that night, we had the entire living room to ourselves (complete with cozy couches, a couple board games, books and ocean views).

    Bettilou is an AMAZING host. She's sweet and spunky, and while she mostly left us alone to have our personal time, it was a delight to chat with her over "wine time". She is also an amazing cook. She had peanut butter cookies waiting for us upon our arrival, and for breakfast the next day she made us delicious egg souffles (with homemade muffins and apple sauce). I was in heaven.

    Oh, I guess I should also mention that the little town of Mendocino is also very nice and very close by for dinner out. But back to Bettilou... I really can't say enough nice things about my experience here. Such a great rate too.

    Can't wait to go back!!

  • Very warm welcome from Bettilou, cute guest area, wonderful view from the house, cannot be closer to the bluff! Bettilou was so charming, welcoming us with wine and appetizers, her breakfast was also great, all home cooked. Thanks a lot Bettilou, we will come back!

  • OMG...I can't say enough good things about Bettilou. This was our first Airbnb experience...and it was amazing. From the first phone call with Bettilou I could tell it was going to be a good experience. She has a heart for hospitality and it really shows. She was so warm and welcoming. She made us feel right at home. The view from our bedroom was breathtakingly beautiful. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and she made it very special. She also helped us with our dinner reservations and gave us tips for hiking in the nearby redwoods.
    Bettilou made the most delicious home-made breakfast each morning. That really started our days off right! :) There was such a warm energy in the house. We can't wait to return. We are already telling all of our friends about it.
    Thank you so much Bettilou!
