1 North: Mendocino, Blue Door Inn

Formerly the Whitegate Inn.

Blue Door Inn  499 Howard St., (800) 531-7282, (707) 937-4892..  6 rooms, 1 cottage; $$-$$$+.  All gas fireplaces.  Afternoon wine; full breakfast.  No pets.  Surrounded by a garden and white picket fence, this updated 1883 Victorian is tastefully furnished in contemporary English style.  Housebaked cookies are always available, and in the morning guests are served a gourmet two-course breakfast in the formal dining room.  Rooms are named after royal residences and have similar decor.  Beds feature padded fabric headboards and are dressed in posh Neiman Marcus linens.  The Buckingham room has a large bathroom with a magnificent oversize soaking tub with tiny jet holes around the bottom (three rooms have this kind of tub) and
a fast-fill waterfall faucet, and the Kensington room has an ocean view.

More things to do in Mendocino.

More ideas for exploring Northern California.
