Inn at Schoolhouse Creek has a beautiful location with postcard picture views. Thyme Cottage, however; desperately needs updating and maintenance (water from shower drains onto bathroom floor, water damage near shower wall and laminate floor in poor condition), needs deep cleaning (spider webs, dusty furniture and floor boards), and pests (ants, spiders, and creepy crawlers) in part, probably because of...

The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek is our new favorite place to stay! We stayed in the Anderson Valley room. The room was very clean, the bed was super comfortable, and we feel like the inn genuinely cares about their guests and really want them to enjoy their stay. Before we even arrived, I received an email with a list of...

Despite our short overnight visit, we thoroughly appreciated the very spacious Captain's Watch room and all its amenities. The rooms are located in a separate building above the cabins and are very secluded and quiet. Rustic outside and very modern inside. The Captain's Watch had a king 4-poster bed, very comfortable, and an enormous corner tub with a separate shower!...

This is a quaint and romantic get-away. It is obviously not a five star business accommodation; don't expect uniformity. The cottages are somewhat rustic and wonderfully quirky in their own way. The staff is super-accommodating and helpful and the Circa 62 restaurant is a superb breakfast restaurant that is a destination eatery on its own. Our first night, we had...

This is a great place! Staff was super nice and welcoming. The grounds are beautiful. Having cookies and a small bottle of wine as a greeting in the cabin was really nice. I am a picky eater and the food was exceptional. I highly recommend breakfast.

My boyfriend and I, along with our 10-year-old dog Fudge, stayed at the Shangri-La cliff side cottage through Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. First, I was elated that the place actually looked like it did in the pictures. It was stunning! Everything was cozy and intimate and we enjoyed the privacy. The big picture windows overlooking the ocean made the experience...

My Mom turned 70 in October and my sister and I decided to take her on a trip to Mendocino. We brought along twin four-year-olds and my almost two year old. Finding a place to stay in the Mendocino area that is kid-friendly is NOT an easy task..we wanted something closer to town than Fort Bragg, but what we found...

We had a wonderful time at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek! We were welcome with open arms, as were our two well-behaved dogs. We travel a lot with our dogs and appreciated how truly dog friendly (not just dog tolerant) the inn is. The property itself is lovely, and we appreciated the little touches in the room: coffee, wine glasses,...

Spent two nights here recently with three friends and we absolutely loved it! We stayed in the Ledford Cottage, which has one king bed, one queen bed and a pull-out couch. We didn't use the pull-out couch, but the beds were VERY comfy. (The bedrooms did get a little cold at night because the main heat for the cottage comes...

My husband and I just spent 5 days at the inn and didn't want to leave. It is so peaceful and relaxing and the innkeepers Sandy and Kevin are the best. They are always checking to make sure you have everything you need. The cottage is very clean and the bed is so comfortable you don't want to get up...
