A wonderful experience all around. The ocean view room was fantastic; a private oasis overlooking the coastline and ocean, with the town of Mendocino in the distance. Bettilou was a great host, full of information about nearby parks and eateries, and lots of local legend. She is attentive and helpful without being intrusive. Breakfast was delicious and different each morning,...

We had a great time at and with Bettilou. We got married there, in her garden on the cliff edge right outside her lounge door. She helped arrange our wedding (officiant James Sibbett, photographer John Birchard). Got our cake, my flowers, kept me calm and both of us entertained during wine time. On top of that it's a great little...

My wife and I stayed one night with Bettie Lou and wish we had stayed longer because we didn't want to leave! The ocean view room was spotless and cozy and what a view! We were perched on the edge of the bluff with spectacular views of the ocean and a couple of beautiful coves. We were treated to the...

Majestic - this best describes Bettilou's Inn. My husband & I stayed one night in the ocean view room, what a beautiful view. The ocean "roared" all night and the waves were rolling in 15-20 ft. heights. We watched the many hummingbirds visiting the feeders, and felt the mist on our faces. Bettilou is a delight. She is so interesting...

The Bettilou Inn is an absolute gem perched just feet from the bluffs' edge on Mendocino Bay about a mile south of the village of Mendocino. There are only two beautiful guest rooms with private baths but if you are lucky enough to snag either of them you will be glad you did. Both rooms are large with comfy beds,...

We had a lovely overnight stay. This is an old property located on old CA 1 across the bay from Mendocino and perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific. There are two guest rooms, which are well furnished, and a comfortable living room. Complimentary wine in late afternoon. Breakfast was served in the room and was excellent. Bettilou makes one...

My friends and I spent 3 nights at Bettilou's just last weekend. I had looked around to find a dreamy B & B on the net. The location is stunning. A cute home on a bluff with the ocean below and a small patio you can sit at and enjoy the view. Just inside is the living room furnished with...

My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay at Bettilou's. At first I was skeptical about the other reviews. How could this be? Well, they are all correct. It is that good. We were so pampered and Bettilou is such a delight without being intrusive. She leaves nothing to chance and we felt at home and so...

Just returned from a delightful trip to Mendocino County, CA. Really enjoyed my visit, and look forward to returning to this picturesque town again. Following a breath-taking (literally -- don't take Highway 1 if you are afraid of heights with awesome vistas, hairpin turns and a narrow two-lane highway, with few opportunities for passing) drive from the San Francisco-area, Bettilou's...
