Mendocino County offers the perfect environment for a magical getaway with cozy temperatures, gorgeous coastal bluffs, glass beaches, and delicious dining. But perhaps, the most charming things about the Mendocino Coast are the cozy inns found spread throughout it that offer serene getaways on beautiful farms. The VIVA GLAM Magazine team visited Mendocino County in mid-June, and we were thrilled to stay one of these fairy-tale like locations, the Glendeven Inn & Lodge.
The Glendeven Inn & Lodge is rated #1 on trip advisor, and it’s easy to see why. This gorgeous property doesn’t just offer cozy adults-only lodging but a full-on experience, as well. Glendeven consists of 15 acres with roaming llamas and chickens and breathtaking gardens that paint the property’s landscape. Our accommodations were right next to the llama fields, so we were able to sit and enjoy watching the llamas casually stroll by as we ate our breakfasts in the morning. It was truly a serene experience that made us feel as if we were living in a storybook.
We stayed in the “Stevenscroft” building in the “Pinewood” room, a room with a breathtaking view just outside of its French doors. Not only were we blown away by how charming the Stevenscroft building was on the outside with its redwood exterior surrounded by beautiful bushes of flowers, but we were also thrilled to discover how comfortable the room was on the inside. Our little suite had a wood-burning fireplace set up for us to use which we, of course, took advantage of. There’s nothing cozier than sitting in a chic country cottage by a fresh burning fire. The interior style of our room was charmingly country and fit the farm environment perfectly.
Perhaps, our favorite part of the Glendeven Inn experience was breakfast! A picnic basket containing breakfast was delivered daily to our door. Each breakfast consisted of an egg dish, bread, a fruit/yogurt dish, and fresh orange juice. Upon check-in, the concierge took our preferences for our morning drinks, and coffee or tea was brought to our room with breakfast with the requested cream and sugar preferences. They were happy to accommodate vegan diets and had oat milk as a replacement to regular milk, which is a personal favorite of mine.
All in all, Glendeven Inn & Lodge is in the perfect place to escape reality while allowing quick access to the surrounding towns and attractions. It has convenient trails right next to the property that lead down to the sea bluffs or deeper into the forests. It’s the perfect way to getaway and get acquainted with nature in a still-luxurious environment. If you want to feel like you’ve stepped into a fairy tale, be sure to visit Glendeven Inn & Lodge today! We are still dreaming about our unique experience.
