Welcome to Mendocino on California’s Northern Coast

Mendocino’s Seagull Inn Bed and Breakfast, located just steps to the Headlands and Big River State Parks, beaches, shops, galleries, outdoor recreation, and fine dining, is one of the original Bed and Breakfast Inns on the scenic Northern California Coast.

The Seagull Inn was built in 1883 and has served the traveling public since the 1960s. Along with its spectacular location, this treasure is noted for its hospitality, charm, delicious breakfast, meticulously maintained gardens, and affordability for the best value and experience in the Village.

Well maintained, cared for and loved, the Seagull Inn and its grounds are very much a part of Mendocino’s original historical charm. All ten guest rooms have private entrances and en suite full bathrooms. All rooms have a view of the dramatic and ever-changing Pacific Ocean, or our magical coastal gardens. You are invited to sit out in the gardens, on the deck, patio, Adirondacks, or the many benches. Each morning, a delicious, filling, organic breakfast is brought to your room.

Our guests love the Seagull Inn Bed and Breakfast because it has the perfect location, history, affordability and personality in Mendocino Village. Our staff is happy to welcome you, make recommendations for local dining, events, nature walks and more. Our mission is to make your experience in Mendocino filled with exquisite memories.

Allow us to make Seagull Inn your go-to place for years to come.

Our “Best Rates” are available only on our reservation pages or by phone. Many third party websites (like Expedia and Booking.com or TripAdvisor and even Google), claim to have the best rates for our guest rooms. They do not, because we set their rates and we do not always offer our rooms through those sites. The truth is that you’ll find the best rates and availability by booking through our website or calling us directly.

The Frolic is our newest, tenth room. Converted from a long term rental, our newest room has been tastefully remodeled to give homage to The Frolic – the sailing ship that “gave birth” to what we appreciate as the Mendocino Village. With a King Size Bed, warm wood and ship feeling amenities, as well as a custom bathroom, this room will bring you back to the 1880’s with current amenities. Garden views and a Bistro table set on the veranda, the room will make you feel like you were there in the 19th century, with all the comforts of today.


Springtime in Mendocino! It’s a rush of vibrant color in the fields, local gardens, and bluffs that line the Pacific Ocean. Still, there is nothing more spectacular than the Mendocino Botanical Gardens.

“Charming, Comfortable, and Close: Although it was storming when we arrived, the Inn and gardens were beautiful. Ian and Kim are new owners and made us feel right at home. The room … was quite large and comfortable. The Inn is located very close to many shops and restaurants and we loved the sound of the surf pounding on the rocks. Will go back in the Spring or Summer and enjoy the porch and gardens.”

Trip Advisor Review

“My husband and I just stayed at the Seagull Inn Bed & Breakfast for our 10 year wedding anniversary, and we loved it! The ocean views and breezes were amazing! The room was cozy and well appointed, and we loved the garden areas and breakfast. The new Innkeepers (Ian & Kim) are sweet and very attentive. We enjoyed a delicious Sunday breakfast of egg souffle (divine) …”

The room was decorated in an adorable and cozy style. The beds were comfortable and the room clean. The breakfast was amazing both mornings and brought to our room on a tray!!! We will return!”
