Brewery Gulch Inn in Mendocino, California

Off California’s Hwy 1 is Brewery Gulch Inn, a retreat nestled between redwood forests, dramatic Pacific cliffs and a verdant mosaic of vineyards. Proprietors Guy and Sarah Pacurar have forged an idyllic respite made of timber reclaimed from the Big River and populated with Arts and Crafts furniture, in an ecosystem they actually strive to improve by regenerating the land and encouraging bio-diversity. Otters and harbor seals frolic in the waters below as deer dash through the forests. To watch the sun set over this coastline is something extraordinary.

Wake up to the hotel’s special eggs benedict on homemade English muffins and custom-roasted Black Oak blend coffee. Trace Highway 1 to Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, where a fern canyon, rhododendrons, roses, deer and osprey populate the wild coastal bluffs. Continue up the road to Noyo Harbor, lunch at Herons by the Sea in sight of the fishing and Coast Guard vessels passing by the village. Enjoy a horseback ride on the beach at the Ricochet Ridge Ranch: one of Outside magazine’s top 25 trips of a lifetime. Upon your return to the hotel, enjoy wine hour by the monumental four-sided glass and metal fireplace. Finish your day at the Headlands Coffee House with the local kids, artists, and couples, then wind down by your in-room gas-burning fireplace.

Good size room, great on-site facilities in a lovely rural location. Super views and very relaxing. Staff were excellent, helpful and no issue too much trouble. The Inn was decorated beautifully with local works of art along with the greatest sitting chairs and great log burner fire....biggest I've ever seen save for a few castles in UK!!

We just had a 3 night stay in Mendocino's Brewery Gulch Inn. I chose it based on reviews I had read. I was looking for a classy quiet place where we could read (husband had just broken his big toe so hiking and a lot of activities were off the docket) be mesmerized by views, peace, and nature. BGI exceeded my expectations. We stayed in Pelican which has a beautiful view of Smuggler's Cove, a balcony door we could keep open at night for crisp cool breezes and the sound of waves, a fireplace with 2 comfortable reaching chairs, and a wonderfully cozy bed that faced the water. We loved the constant supply of homemade goodies, coffee, and tea that I could sneak down for as early as 7:15 am in my BGI supplied robe. The breakfasts were an A+. The "appetizers" at the 5:30 wine hour served as our evening meal each night. The endless supply of carefully chosen DVD's available to guests provided our evening relaxation. Their deck was a delightful place to nap, read and birdwatch. We could not have found a lovelier place to stay. I give this 5 stars without hesitation and know that we will be returning. PS The concierge arranged for us to have a couples massage in our room one afternoon. It was wonderful to turn the arrangements over to them! And, the massages are a standout memory for us.

Our room was very nice, and the location (very close to Mendocino) was excellent. Breakfast was great. The only issue is that the buffet dinner, while of high quality, is served too early (5:30-6:30). And not long after that, the place goes very quiet.

My husband and I stayed at Brewery Gulch Inn last night. It was a last minute decision to travel North, and the fact the Inn is listed as the 46th best hotel in the world enticed us. It was a mistake. I would not return. There are many reasons why. Here they are - 1. There were cobwebs in our room ("Pine"). I really didn’t like that. It made me wonder what else wasn't clean(ed). 2. Dinner was cold. There was pork and vegetables which I *think* were supposed to be served hot. The taste was bland (unseasoned) and we wished we’d eaten in Mendocino. It felt like a wasted soiree. 3. Dinner at 5.30pm is *not good*. Guests have no choice but to eat at 5.30pm. The room rate includes dinner. I know many Americans eat earlier (we’re not Americans), but for the room price to include dinner, one tends to want to stay at the inn to enjoy what one has paid for. We felt compelled to eat at the allotted time of 5.30pm, and the food was not good. I sense that the inn enjoys its routine, and that’s great, but it’s not for us. 4. Breakfast was dressed up as "gourmet". We chose the BAAT (bacon avocado arugula tomato). Frankly, it was a bit of throw-everything-together of flavors. There was simply too much going on. It came cold and was not delicious. A miss. 5. We had a bottle of Zin in the evening. It was $28, we think. I would have happily paid more for a better wine. It was like cheap Zin at $10 a bottle from Safeway. If an inn is going to charge $445 per night, then it should match these prices with a far better wine selection (and food quality). 6. It was good to have a wide selection of DVDs to choose from to watch in our room. 7. There is a tiny little shop in the Inn - we bought a bandit raccoon toy. There were some nice things for sale. 8. We liked the ability to borrow binoculars. A nice little touch (but we only learned this by accident). For me, most of all, my feedback is this - the hotel ‘core’ - the central room where everything happens (eat, drink, fire (not on), games, etc.) - lacked a soul. We enjoy staying at the Timber Cove Inn near Jenner, for example, which has a lovely fire and relaxation area, complete with an outdoor games room, a bar, and a restaurant. They’re wonderful. Conversely, at Brewery Gulch, all guests felt the need to whisper to each other and very few hung around in the evening. It was almost awkward. We wouldn’t return. It was over-priced at $445 for the experience we had. It’s a shame, but one has to try new things. I’ve paid half the price for a far better experience elsewhere along the coast north of SF. We do love Mendocino, but we’d choose a different inn the next time around. (And don't arrive early; they will turn you away.)

The Brewery Gulch Inn offers an excellent option for those who wish to stay just outside of "downtown Mendocino". This small hotel (only 11 rooms) is situated on a wooded hillside above Highway 1. The facility is immaculate and the staff is friendly. Rooms are very quiet, and there is a nice outdoor deck on which to enjoy afternoon sunshine. Only one caveat: included in the daily rate are two meals. Breakfast is outstanding, with many delicious options. "Dinner," however, is offered from warming dishes in the dining area only between 5:30 - 6:30. The food was fine, although only one option was provided. We found the timing a bit restrictive; since we prefer to dine later, we went out to a restaurant our second evening. Otherwise a great hotel.
