B&B at a Glance: Sandpiper House Inn

The intimate Sandpiper House Inn couldn’t have a more breathtaking location. Perched on cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean on California’s Mendocino Coast, the 1916 Craftsman-style house has a view so striking that it’s appeared on the cover of Sunset magazine. Guests enjoy ocean views throughout the property and ocean sounds from every room.

  • Oceanfront location: Greenwood State Beach (less than half a mile away) is a great spot for picnics and bonfires.
  • Romance package: This Getaway includes chocolates and fresh flowers.
  • Cliff-top gardens are dotted with flowers and trees, and a vista point provides a place to sit and take in the view.
  • Daily gourmet breakfasts are served in a breakfast room overlooking the ocean and gardens.
  • Luxurious rooms are individually decorated with antiques and feature fireplaces and private baths.

Mendocino Coast, California: Small Towns Along Scenic Oceanfront and Redwood Forests

Located about three hours north of San Francisco, Northern California’s Mendocino Coast is a region filled with tiny towns, art colonies, and varied terrain. Within a few minutes of one another are sunlit valleys, fertile vineyards, rocky headlands blanketed by fog, and serene forests of old-growth redwoods. The Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens showcase the area’s geographical diversity through its native rhododendrons, prickly succulents, and colorful blooms stretching to the ocean.

Partially because of its scenic land and sea scapes, the coast is popular with painters, who gather in artists’ collectives such as the Mendocino Art Center. To see the land that inspires local artwork, head to Russian Gulch, Mendocino Headlands, or any of the region’s coastal state parks. At Mendocino Headlands State Park, waves crash into carving arches, grottos, and stony bluffs, while MacKerricher State Park north of Fort Bragg contains dramatic sand dunes.

Although normally quiet, the region comes alive during a series of whale festivals every March and April, when California gray whales pass by the coast as they migrate from Mexico to Alaska. You’ll find one of the best vantage points for whale watching at Point Cabrillo Light Station, a lonely lighthouse first lit in 1909.
