The Destination
Approaching Mendocino on Highway 1, you might feel as if you've driven back in time. As the speed limit slows and the ocean views open up, you'll pass wind-swept cypress trees that seem to be left over from the Jurassic period, and the misty bluffs on your left—beaten down by millennia of crashing tides—appear to precede time itself. This is the Mendocino Coast in all its untamed majesty.

The Digs
People have been passing through the Fensalden Bed & Breakfast Inn, about seven miles south of the town of Mendocino, for almost as long as the landscapes have existed. In the 1860s, it was a stagecoach stop offering a pause in the unusually long journeys along California's rural North Coast. Since then, the structure has been completely renovated, but the property still serves the same purpose: the perfect place for a romantic layover. The Hawthorne Suite, Tower Suite, and The Bungalow all feature fireplaces and views of the Pacific Ocean, or of the property's rolling, cypress-lined pastures below. Awake each morning to a three-course gourmet breakfast, then get out and explore all the region has to offer.

The Diversions
• Saddle up for a private horseback ride, on the beach or through the redwoods, at Ross Ranch
• Relax and rejuvenate in the hot tubs and saunas of Sweetwater Gardens
Head to Albion River Inn for your included cocktails
• Go wine tasting at Navarro Vineyards.
• Reserve a table at Cafe Beaujolais, serving authentically French, locally sourced fare

  • "Fensalden is a magical and welcoming bed and breakfast. Chris treated us like family and we felt quite at home. They were available to our needs, but not intrusive, and our room was lovely."
