Situated atop Navarro Ridge, just 7 short miles south of charming Mendocino Village, sitting at the back of several pastoral acres with an amazing panoramic Pacific Ocean view, Fensalden Inn prides herself of pampering her guests.
A complete three course breakfast is served each morning in the Tavern Room at your leisure. Join us for wine and hors d’oeuvres in the late afternoon as the whales pass by saluting us with their spouts in the spring. Smile at the distinctive waddle of the covey of quail as they come to feed in late summer, or join Bob as he takes the pygmy goats and ducks for a stroll , while you marvel at the spectacular sunsets of the Northern California Coast.
A quiet haven for writers, a romantic weekend getaway for lovers, the perfect serene setting for your wedding… Fensalden Inn covers your every need! Take a walk through our meadows with Gabriel and Moses, the Innkeeper’s playful pups, as your guides. Watch the hummingbirds from just inches away during our evening wine and hors d’oeuvres. Or simply enjoy the comforts of home with the plush bathrobe in your room curled up near the fireplace, and a glass of Husch Vineyards’ award winning Chenin Blanc in your favorite room.
We invite you to come and experience the magic of Fensalden Inn, “Land of the Mist and the Sea”!
Bed and Breakfast Style
Fensalden Inn was originally built as a Wells Fargo Stagecoach stop in the mid-1800s when the pioneers finally reached our beautiful coast and marveled at the towering Redwoods. Today she continues to offer warm hospitality to weary travelers, and prides herself on pampering her guests.
There are eight romantic accommodations, each with gas or wood burning fireplace, several with balcony or porch overlooking the ocean or gardens, as well as bar refrigerators with complimentary bottle of wine upon arrival; two suites, one with kitchen, one with canopy bed; a Bungalow with Jacuzzi bathtub and full kitchen. All are tastefully decorated with antique furnishings, private baths with tiled showers.
The main building includes four common rooms for our guests’ use. The wood-burning fireplace in the entry parlor is complimented by antiques, a pewter collection and Oriental rugs. The Tavern Room offers a conversation area overlooking the ocean where guests can socialize in front of a wood burning stove, and enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres as they watch the humming birds feed, and are awed by the sunset over the ever changing sea.
The dining area of the Tavern Room features an antique walnut table, which seats 12. Here we serve the complete three course breakfast each morning, with champagne on Sundays. This table is well suited to boardroom style workshops or meetings. The glass enclosed ocean-view Sunroom may be arranged for private parties or meetings of up to 32 people. Here, in this pristine, pastoral setting, business people may hold executive retreats, meetings or seminars, away from the noise and distraction of the urban office milieu, and writers find a haven for creativity. The adjoining Library is a fully equipped office with FAX, copier, and printer, as well as wireless internet. Audio/visual equipment is available upon request.
The Mendocino Coast is one of the most beautiful natural settings in the world. It is the perfect romantic setting to enjoy yourself with someone you love, to just get away from the hubbub of the city for a few days, or to have the opportunity to hold business meetings away from the hectic pace of the office. We invite you to come visit Fensalden Inn, “Land of Mist and Sea”!
