A Mendocino Bloom for you on bloomin' Tuesday!
Pretty huh? DH and I realized that over the past thirty years plus we have stayed at a total of ten B & Bs in Mendocino. Some I've pictured here.
This first one is not one of them. LOL
It's The Blair House and the B & B where the TV series: "Murder She Wrote" was filmed!
(This is for Cris, as she asked me to take a photo of it for her)
greeted us upon our arrival. Also a coupon for a free ice cream at Frankie's a little
restaurant around the corner for DH's birthday!
The bag of goodies held both Christmas candies and Chanukah gelt.
within a small entry way all in our private area!
It had a nice wall heater that when turned on warmed our bath towels for us,
and two bathrobes hung on the door for us to use.
walking, shopping, hanging out at the beach etc.
The mattress was a little high in the middle and DH said he
had difficulty staying in the bed. I did just fine.
Must have been the pretty quilt on the bed!
We both enjoyed the hosts and their hospitality; and the upstairs parlor we visited in the evenings after dinner out. We could sit and put our feet up, read, or draw or embroider.
They served hot apple cider and tea/coffee...and cookies.
There was also an ice box there with cold drinks we could just take.
A big bowl of candy DH liked a lot!
And a snifter of brandy if you were so inclined. We ate Christmas Dinner here at The Mc Callum House.
I had duck, he had braised chicken.
We once stayed here at Sweetwater Gardens and I had the best massage I'd ever had in my life! We stayed here the weekend before we got married on April 1st (Monday) at the court house in nearby Fort Bragg. We shot this view, as the ladder went to the attic room we stayed in. It's called The Sea Gull Inn. This is DHs favorite where we have stayed several times called Mc Elroy's Inn. The ownership has changed and is now called something French and is owned by the same people who own another across the street. They were not open over Christmas weekend. He liked it because it had a bedroom and another room with a fire place, which we used in the winter time stays. It felt like having a little house to yourself. They only had coffee and banana nut bread for breakfast in the little office. And it was inexpensive compared to all the others. Oops, another shot of Blair House! We've also stayed at The Blackberry Inn, John Grindles House, Agate Inn... I do not recall all the other names right now, but you get the picture!
