About this listing
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.
COVE VIEW ROOM:
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' www.airbnb.com/rooms/edit/957647 ***]
BREAKFAST & 'WINE TIME':
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.
LOCATION & HISTORY:
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 NOTE THERE IS AN ADDITIONAL 11% BED TAX (NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE) WHICH I WILL COLLECT UPON ARRIVAL***
Please message me with any additional questions and I will be more than happy to answer you!
Due to the location & liability, we cannot accommodate small children or pets.
My partner and I had a wonderful time at Bettilou's. She was very easy to communicate with and her place was even better than we had anticipated. We had a view of the ocean, binoculars and even a little telescope in our bedroom to study critters at sea, and a delicious breakfast awaiting us in the morning. Our only regret is that we didn't check in earlier in the day so that we could have participated in the wine tasting she does (regularly?) at 4 pm and spend more time admiring the view. Bettilou is delightful and her home is a gem; we've already recommended the place to parents & friends.
We had a wonderful Mendocino visit at Bettilou's. The accommodations were most comfortable and inviting; the setting was stunning and the view across the bay to the town of Mendocino was spectacular; the breakfast and afternoon repast were both generous and delicious; and Bettilou's friendly hospitality was the icing on the cake. We will definitely stay again! Thank you !
My husband and I had a great time at Bettilou's Inn. The location is perfect and the room is great with access to the living room. We stayed at the garden view room, but it also had views of the ocean :), so turned out to be a good value for money.
Bettilou is amazing. We really enjoyed her 4pm interactive wine session. Also she was very thoughtful and cooked us vegetarian meal. We will come back again!
This was my husband and mines first experience at a B & B and what a good one it was! Bettilou was so welcoming and greeted us with a smile and a hug. Our room was everything we expected and more. There was a queen sized bed with the most amazing sheets! I loved the anticipation of wondering what delicious breakfast we were going to be served and the daily conversation with Bettilou over wine. We also enjoyed meeting the other guests and visiting with them. The views are out of this world and the binoculars in every room made viewing the wildlife and abalone divers such a treat. I can't wait until our next trip up to Bettilou's Inn!
My girlfriend and I enjoyed a lovely weekend at Bettilou's. The location is ideal, Bettilou made us feel so welcome, and we could not have been more pleased with our stay. Our only regret was spending 1 night and not 2 (or 3, or 4 or 5...) night. We certainly would recommend Bettilou's Inn and hope to return soon!
I can't say enough about Bettilou and her Inn. We were welcomed with a hug, glasses of wine, and nibbles for happy hour as we gazed out at the absolutely stunning view from the living room. Bettilou was so incredibly gracious and welcoming. I felt like we were visiting that kind of family you can't wait to see and catch up with. The rooms were extremely comfortable and spacious.
The view and surrounding property were breath-taking. She's not exaggerating--less than 30 feet from the edge of the bluff with crashing waves below. This would be the PERFECT place to watch whales as it sits right in the middle of the Mendocino Bay.
After providing a few recommendations for dinner (her rec for the Mendocino Cafe was spot on!), we came back to our choice of after dinner drinks. As amazing as dinner was, I'd have to say we probably enjoyed Bettilou's breakfast even more! Individual egg and broccoli soufflé with a delicious banana chocolate chip muffin and fruit with coffee and juice.
If you are looking for a place to stay in the Mendocino area, look no further. This place (and its owner) is truly one of a kind. You will not be disappointed.
Bettilou was an amazing hostess to us! She was extremely personable and welcomed us with open arms into her beautiful inn, which is located literally a stones-throw away from the ocean. The room we stayed in not only was very clean, but very charming as well. We would definitely stay there again.
