Quiet spot in a unique town
Posted Jul 16, 2016
I was thrilled to stay at the Hill House because I am a Murder, She Wrote fan. I was disappointed to find out that the Hill House Inn Cabot Cove sign does not exist any longer. However, I did find Jessica Fletcher's house - the Blair House - in town & took a picture of it. Mendocino is a really special, artsy, unique town on a beautiful stretch of the Northern California coastline. It is truly breathtaking. The Hill House is (just as other reviewers have mentioned) an older establishment with a few "aches and pains". However, I think it's absolutely charming. Our room was extremely spacious and had a wonderful little patio with Adirondack chairs for enjoying the cool ocean breezes (we're from Texas, so we enjoyed that thoroughly!). The grounds around the hotel are beautiful with such a wide variety of flowering plants. I absolutely loved taking it all in. The front desk was very helpful, and the breakfast .... well, it wasn't much in terms of variety, but it was free and filled us up well enough. The inn is walking distance into town, which is loaded with all types of charming shops and restaurants. I would love to visit again, and I would certainly consider staying at the Hill House when I do.
