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 Garden Side room has a view of the beautiful garden as well as the South End of Mendocino Bay. 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 'Ocean View Room' ***]


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
Check In
  • We had a short, but delightful stay with Bettilou. Our room was perfectly appointed and comfortable and Bettilou was welcoming and made us feel right at home. Wine time allowed us a chance to chat with our host and the other guests while enjoying a spectacular view. Breakfast was delicious and Bettilou delivered it right to our room. This was our first Air BnB experience and I think it may have spoiled us for the future.

  • This was our first stay at any BnB and Bettilou has certainly raised the bar way to high for us. The location is just perfect for a getaway, amazing views of the ocean and the Mendocino town. Bettilou was just fantastic as a host, we really had a good time during her "wine time". She also made arrangements for a cake which I had requested for my wife's birthday before we checked in which was really nice of her. I highly recommend Bettilou's Inn for anyone who is visiting Mendocino and look forward to visit again some time soon.

  • Bettilou is a wonderful hostess. From the wine and cheese at night and excellent breakfast in the morning delivered when we wanted it. The house is right on the ocean like the pictures. there isn't really beach access but the view and sounds are fantastic. Bettilou is a kick and great conversationalist. you can spend the night just talking with her.

  • I just have one word to describe my experience: Amazing! First, Bettilou is amazing. Bettilou's hospitality is incredible, since I made the reservation, she was kindly, called to know my husband's name, if we had any alimentar restriction and to say thank you to book her place. She was totally friendly when we arrived, we felt totally welcome.

    Second, the place is Amazing. I had booked the Cove room but Bettilou let us have the better views. The place is in front of the sea, very romantic, lovely sunset, wonderful view. The house is totally rich in details, the room is cute. Was an absolutely incredible experience!

    Wine time was wonderful and we had a really good chat to Bettilou. She shared a little about her life, but I could stay hours talking with her.

    Breakfast was served in our room, was delicious!

    If you are looking for a very warm and wonderful stay, I absolutely would recommend Bettilou's Inn. I absolutely loved every single detail. Totally surpassed my expectations.

  • Boy, where do i begin...

    What a lovely trip this was. Bettilou welcomed us with a bottle of wine and we sat and talked in the living room, facing the water while she served us some snacks. We had a great time and would recommend this to everyone. Breakfast in the morning was just delightful. The view is spectacular and everything was private when we wanted it to be. I'm sad to only have spent one evening there. We'll be back soon (i hope!)

  • My husband and I stayed at Bettilou's place to celebrate our first wedding anniversary, and we loved it! Bettilou was the perfect host - she was professional, sweet, warm and we genuinely enjoyed her company. Her house is located on the bluff and is beautiful. We loved waking up to the sound of crashing waves. Her breakfasts were delicious. Overall, it was the perfect experience and we were sad to leave. Thank you Bettilou and Jim!

  • We had a very pleasant stay with Betty. She was the right amount of hospitable but kept out of our hair and we had plenty of privacy. The location is amazing right on the water and the view was decent albeit set apart from a full ocean view. The breakfasts were hot and delicious and I loved the hot carafes of water and coffee as well as the Wine Time in the afternoons. Very secluded, private, and key location just off Highway 1 and a 5 minute drive to downtown Mendocino.

  • What a wonderful time we had at Bettilou's. Because the other room wasn't rented we had the living room to ourselves and stayed up late one night playing cards. The view was incredible, with the crashing waves just yards away! Breakfast was fabulous and in fact the best quiche I've ever had. And we enjoyed visiting with Bettilou over wine and snack time each afternoon. When we come back to Mendocino, we will stay again.

  • I didn't have to pleasure staying here, but it sounds like I need to. Bought a night here for my friends and they loved it. Amazing location and Bettilou sounds like a fantastic host!
