The views are beautiful, the room was great as was the food, the owners were friendly and very helpful. We were only there a few days but very much enjoyed our time there! The fog was pretty intense but actually made the wedding photos so much better

The Agate Cove Inn sits high on the cliffs, just off of PCH 1 ,as you enter Mendocino from the north. The grounds and gardens are as charming and picturesque as the Inn itself. Built around the central building are individual "cottages". Each, beautifully appointed and very cozy. Breakfast is served in a welcoming room with oversized picture windows over... More

We had a wonderful stay at this charming inn located on the edge of the town of Mendicino . Our cozy room was beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. The cluster of accomodations are surrounded by exceptional flowers and plants and gardens. One of the highlights was the delicious breakfast served in the main house with breathtaking views of the ocean.... More

My wife and I stayed 2 days at the Agate Cove Inn on a recent road trip. We'll be back! The setting of the Inn is great. It's across the road from the ocean, and the views (if it's not foggy) are great. It's only about half a mile from "downtown". We stayed in the Emerald room. I didn't look... More

Spent a lovely weekend at the Agate Cove Inn located just outside Mendocino. The bedroom was lovely and beautifully furnished and service was excellent. The owners of the inn were away but the visiting innkeeper did a great job in keeping everything running. Breakfast both days was great and service attentive. The only thing that keeps this from being a... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Agate Cove and are already plotting our return trip. This was our first time exploring the Pacific coast—California in general, actually—and Roger, Laraine, and Charles made sure that our experience was equal parts relaxing and adventurous. After a long flight from Tennessee to SFO, and the subsequent drive to Mendocino, we were... More

By now, I've seen most of the Pacific coast in the US. Even by those standards, the ability to enjoy the view at Agate Cove Inn is spectacular, and the chairs on the lawn are situated perfectly. I truly have only good things to say. The rooms were beautifully appointed, comfortable, and clean. As if that weren't enough, little touches... More
