THE GREAT ROOM
Cuisine at the inn draws primarily from organic and locally-sourced products. In 2009, a heritage garden was planted in a garden plot provided to the inn by Ferrington Vineyards in the nearby Anderson Valley. The bounty from this garden provides some of the seasonal fruits and vegetables used in the preparation of the acclaimed breakfasts and light dinner buffets served to the guests. The coffee served at the inn is a special blend crafted by Black Oak Coffee, a local Mendocino roaster. Coffee grounds and all organic kitchen matter, as well as used ashes from non-treated firewood is composted. All of the inn’s laundry products are scent and phosphate-free, and an in-house recycling program is in place to address non-recyclable and non-compostable waste.
The efficient drip irrigation system at the inn was installed by hand over a six month period with no machinery; tunneling was done under tree roots with a crowbar in order not to damage trees. After fifteen years of planning and several years of permit work, the ponds that were envisioned as part of the property’s overall wetlands restoration were completed in 2005. The ponds are kept clean and are conducive to plant and animal life through a system of natural rock filters. They require no chemical additives. The majority of the plantings surrounding the ponds are plants, grasses, shrubs and flowers native to this region. Throughout the grounds of the inn, no herbicides, pesticides or fungicides are used.

This stylish hotel sets a SoHo standard for design. Gourmet Magazine
One of the best wood-burning fireplaces on the North Coast, an open, four-sided monument of steel and glass that toasts up the Great Room. Savor Magazine
Standing on the balcony of the Osprey room might satisfy a lingering childhood fantasy of living in a treehouse. Travel and Leisure
Walked through those redwood doors and up to our little retreat, Smuggler’s Cove”, and felt like we were in heaven on earth. The Davisons
The rooms are comfy and lush, the staff is warm and welcoming, the food is four stars, and the amenities are many and much appreciated. We are your biggest fans! O. Provost
We would like to live there forever, if possible. The Zimmers
We had a perfect stay, and both feel it was the very best way to usher my child bride into my decade. We had thought about going to Paris, but were glad we'd decided on something closer, where our faulty French wouldn't be tested. And driving glorious 128 is a lot nicer than economy on United! The Inn, which we loved under its original ownership, is even better than it was. And Chef Peg is a treasure. We hadn't realized that the Pelican
gave us a ringside seat on the busy birdfeeders, and at no extra cost. The Edwards

It’s as if you’ve entered a “zone of comfort” where your every need has been anticipated and then addressed in a way that makes you feel completely at home. Deborah W.
