Read a testimonial!

A piece of heaven exists up in a beautiful town named Mendocino. I will forever be grateful to the Universe for allowing me to experience the magic of the Stanford Inn. A place where you go to not exactly forget about all of life’s stresses, but to recharge, renew, learn about yourself, ACCEPT yourself, love nature and nourish your body, mind and spirit. The hardest part (and best) was choosing what to eat because everything is PLANT-BASED and many ingredients come from their garden. I want to thank the Stanfords for making me feel at home and for inspiring my new dreams, Sid for sharing your wealth of knowledge and doing what you do everyday, and Alicia for loving all the plant goodness as much as I do. I can go forever about how much I love this place but that wouldn’t be fun for you! Go out there and make this trip a reality for yourself! You’ll thank me later. – N.F.
