Excellent accommodation. Fantastic service.

Rising from the land on a windswept bluff-top overlooking the rugged Mendocino coast sits Brewery Gulch Inn, a remarkable cathedral of eco-salvaged redwood. Spectacular windows frame postcard views of the pines and the surf beyond. Inside, the clean and contemporary Arts and Crafts style; the attention to detail; and the included meals incorporating locally-sourced, organic cuisine prepared by an accomplished executive chef wrap guests in a cocoon of comfort. This is the Brewery Gulch Inn.

Soothing earth tones, tasteful furnishings, and a Zen-like style and ambiance connect this inn to the California coast. All of the individual guest rooms, with the exception of the Meadowview Suite, feature ocean views. All accommodations have gas fireplaces, down comforters, and pillows, feather beds, Sferra fine linens, turndown service on request, Asprey and Molton Brown bath products, Abyss thick cotton towels, lighted makeup mirrors, Giessdorf showerheads, flat panel televisions with built-in DVD players and Direct TV, iHome clock radios, WiFi access, local and long distance calls, plush robes, fresh flowers, and rich leather club chairs for relaxing by the fire.

The heart and soul of Brewery Gulch, the enormous Great Room, is anchored by an iconic, four-sided glass and steel fireplace fabricated by a local shipbuilder. This gathering place is filled with light tumbling down from the central core’s three-story high skylight and flooding in from a bank of 13-foot high, redwood-trimmed French doors overlooking Smuggler’s Cove. Surrounding this area are tables of quarter-sawn oak where guests sample the chef’s creations. A small library of books; an amazing 500+ DVD collection featuring classic, contemporary and foreign films; and an extensive selection of games can be found along the south wall of the Great Room.
