The Stanford Inn – Historic Farm & Eco-Resort

Canoe & Bike

Welcome to Mendocino and The Stanford Inn Eco-Resort

On a Mendocino Coast hillside, the Stanford Inn, a Mendocino Resort, overlooks Mendocino Bay and the inn’s historic farm. A haven, this Mendocino Resort offers exquisite opportunity to reconnect with one another, nature, your creativity and joyfulness.

The rambling lobby of this  Mendocino bed and breakfast is spacious and welcoming. Guest rooms and suites of this boutique hotel in Mendocino are paneled in pine and redwood. Every detail is attended to, from wood-burning fireplaces set and ready to light to the sumptuous chef-prepared organic breakfasts included with your stay.

Inspired by the Stanford’s Certified Organic gardens, Ravens Restaurant, featured in Oprah Magazine, is outstanding and nationally acclaimed for gourmet plant-based cuisine. Ravens’ Restaurant is the essential dining experience on the Mendocino Coast. Mendocino’s Stanford Inn & Ravens Restaurant is North America’s only sustainable eco-resort.

This Mendocino eco-resort specializes in romantic getaways, is pet-friendly, family-friendly, and is especially popular for Northern California Coast weddings and elopements. The Inn’s Massage in the Forest and Mendocino Center for Living Well provide a variety of life-enhancing experiences. Unequaled elsewhere, the paddling experiences in redwood outrigger canoes at Stanford Inn’s Catch A Canoe & Bicylces, too! are amazing.

*One of a Kind Stay! Peace & Beauty & Fun*

“We loved our stay at Stanford Inn by the Sea! The rooms resemble a beautiful, cozy cabin which we loved. We enjoyed the humane, tasty food at Raven’s restaurant and the gift shop has a lot of wonderful resources if you want to learn more about a plant based diet. We appreciated the bikes being included in our stay and that was one of our most favorite activities. I think the canoe for an hour or two should have been included also but there is more of a demand for getting out on the water. Get to the dock first thing if you want a canoe! BY FAR, our favorite experience was our cooking class with Sid!! I am not a beginner vegan cook and I learned a lot from the experience, the food was delicious, and he made it so much fun! Highly recommend! We loved learning from the students and the teachers of their organic gardening program. Really cool and forward thinking, and important work for the future of the planet. Stanford Inn will appeal to anyone wanting to relax, hike, bike, and explore the quaint town of Mendocino. A bit of a challenge to get to, but a beautiful drive, and worth the effort. Hope to return someday!”
