ABOUT THE INN

ABOUT THE INN

The historic Harbor House Inn rests on the edge of the rustic Pacific Coast in Mendocino. The Inn was first built in 1916 by American Architect Louis Christian Mullgardt, and recently remodeled by Roff Barnett, to showcase the beauty of the redwoods. It has since evolved and stands as both a timeless sanctuary and culinary destination. The Inn is surrounded by the majestic old growth redwood forest, and the dramatic coastline of California. Following a recent remodel, the property features classic and antique furnishings, fireplaces, decks, and pathways to magnificent gardens with vistas that lead to a private beach.  Guests can relax in our stately sitting room and take in the breathtaking ocean views from our dining room. Miles of pristine beaches, cliffs, and rocky shorelines invite guests to embody the spontaneous pace of nature while savoring the wild beauty that is the North Coast of California.
