The Stanford Inn embodies the very best of the rugged, spectacularly beautiful Mendocino Coast. This isn't just an inn with gardens; this is a place that inspires both relaxation and creativity, all inspired by a working, certified organic farm. Here, you can feel the natural forces of the ocean and the aura of nearby Mendocino with its intimate shopping and dining. Superior, secluded accommodations feature wood burning fireplaces, rich furnishings and sweeping views of the majestic Pacific Ocean. The elegant restaurant serves organic meals, and the Massage in the Forest spa, a reflection of the exquisitely kept grounds; everything about this place says "fall in love with life again."


Starting with its working organic farm - the source of many of the meals at its restaurant - the Stanford Inn graces a special area that features the world's tallest living tree and Big River, Northern California's only remaining major undeveloped navigable estuary and the state's newest State Park.


This is a family getaway with true purity and a touch of elegance, combined with a unique brand of fun. All across the grounds, you'll discover llamas, horses and other gentle creatures; or visit the nearby Big River and take a trip in an outrigger canoe big enough for 12!

Pet Friendly

Stanford Inn by the Sea does offer pet-friendly accommodations for those who prefer to travel with their four-legged companion. For more information regarding rates and restrictions, please contact the inn.


Place yourselves amid the soothing, spectacular gardens and truly elegant accommodations at the Stanford Inn. Here are secluded, lushly furnished suites with king-sized feather beds; intimate, organic meals at Ravens' restaurant; and a world of nature and activity just outside your door!
