Mendocino, California

Book this listing through our partner Yonder

Rising from the land on a windswept bluff-top overlooking the rugged Mendocino coast sits a remarkable cathedral of eco-salvaged redwood.

Spectacular windows frame postcard views of the pines and the surf beyond. Inside, the clean and contemporary Arts and Crafts style; the attention to detail; and the included meals incorporating locally-sourced, organic cuisine prepared by an accomplished executive chef wrap guests in a cocoon of comfort. Snuggle. Relax. Rekindle. This is the Brewery Gulch Inn.

The heart and soul of Brewery Gulch, the enormous Great Room, is anchored by an iconic, four-sided glass and steel fireplace fabricated by a local shipbuilder. This gathering place is filled with light tumbling down from the central core’s three-story high skylight and flooding in from a bank of 13-foot high, redwood-trimmed French doors overlooking Smuggler’s Cove. You can relax in a comfortable living room seating area with overstuffed furniture in the style of Gustav Stickley. Surrounding this area are tables of quarter-sawn oak where guests sample the chef’s creations. A small library of books; an amazing 500+ DVD collection featuring classic, contemporary and foreign films; and an extensive selection of games can be found along the south wall of the Great Room. A guest computer and printer with Internet access is located on a desk across from the reception desk. A large selection of coffees and teas, along with fresh pastries and fruit, can be found on the sidebar in the Great Room.

Soothing earth tones, tasteful furnishings, and a Zen-like style and ambiance connect this inn to the California coast. All of our individual guest rooms, with the exception of the Meadowview Suite, feature ocean views.

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.
