San Francisco Magazine has already spotted The Inn at Cobbler's Walk Mendocino! We were chosen as one of the recommended bed and breakfast inns on the Mendocino Coast, and we just opened our doors. Thanks San Francisco Magazine!
"An 11-mile tunnel of redwoods signals that you’re nearing the coast just before you reach Glendeven Inn in Little River [MM 165], where a herd of llamas roams the property. Opt for a room at the new sister lodge across the street, the Inn at Cobbler’s Walk (rates start at $180). In the evening, drop by Glendeven’s barn–cum–wine bar, which pours 50 small-lot Mendocino wines alongside local cheeses curated by Mission Cheese. Come morning, follow the short path to the beach. A breakfast of eggs from the resident hens and honey-coated fruit awaits your return."
"The tiny seaside hamlet of Mendocino doesn’t offer a central plaza or square like Healdsburg or Sonoma, but is small enough to walk around. Many of its prime destinations are in view of the wild coast or otherwise worthy of a short drive, which makes it a rugged and romantic place to park oneself in winter.
Where to stay
The Inn at Cobbler’s Walk Mendocino
A bed and breakfast with its own trailhead leading to an ocean-bluff walk, this is a new, chic overnight destination owned by the Glendeven Inn folks, who run a farmstead and provide eggs and other fresh goodies to this inn as well. Three-course hot breakfasts are served in your room, which you might not want to leave, thanks to the fireplace and jetted tubs. Farm-to-table dinners are served on a regular basis here, too. $150-$295. 8200 North Highway One, Little River, 707-937-0088, cobblerswalkmendocino.com."

"Little River’s Glendeven Inn delights visitors with chickens and llamas that came up from southern California with Glendeven owner John Dixon five years ago. The guests rooms feature pouches of chicken feed so visitors can sample country living. And three nights a week, Glendeven Inn hosts a farm-to-table dinner using local meats and fresh catch, and eggs and greens from his property. Glendeven also runs a unique wine bar featuring only red and white Mendocino County wines. Dixon loves to introduce titles from small wineries that take pride in producing small batches.
Last year Dixon opened new rooms at the sister property across the street dubbed the Inn at Cobbler’s Walk, named after the cobbler who once lived on the premises. Each of the (ten) rooms is replete with modern furnishings, televisions and fireplaces."
