About 10453 Howard Street

A rare find! The Headlands Inn is a distinctive bed and breakfast located in the heart of picturesque, coastal Mendocino Village. The inn offers 7 uniquely appointed guest rooms of simple elegance. All 7 guest rooms have private baths and some rooms have whitewater views of the Pacific Ocean, 6 rooms have wood burning fireplaces. The romantic cottage offers a 2-person spa tub, a wood burning fireplace, DirectTV/DVD, microwave and fridge.

The inn is comprised of four buildings which house 6 guest rooms in the main inn, a romantic cottage, and a owner's residence plus garage. The main inn houses a beautiful parlor where the guests can relax and enjoy afternoon tea service, a kitchen with office area, as well as a large laundry room. The bedroom configurations offer a wide range of accommodation options for travelers with king and queen sized beds. The inn is well known for their tantalizing breakfast, delivered to the rooms where the guests enjoy breakfast in the privacy of their accommodations.

The beautiful English garden provides a peaceful place to retreat and enjoy the local color, while enjoying the soothing sounds of the waves rushing towards the cliffs of the nearby Headlands State Park.

Best of all, it offers the owners a private, spacious two-bedroom, 1-1/2 bath home with a whitewater view from the master suite.

With numerous Hall of Fame Certificates of Excellence from Trip Advisor, the business is thriving, income is spiking and there is additional upside potential to increase rates. Meticulously maintained, the inn and its grounds are very much a part of Mendocino's historical charm.

Ideally located in the heart of the Mendocino Village, the Headlands Inn is located just a short stroll to superb restaurants, unique shops, fine galleries, a local theater, and to the beaches and walking trails of the Headlands State Park. Within a short drive, guests can visit four other state parks with hiking and biking trails, as well as Big River for kayaking and canoeing. Mendocino’s wine country is nearby, offering a beautiful leisurely drive through the Navarro Redwood State Park to award winning wineries located in Anderson Valley.

Headlands Inn is a fine example of early Mendocino architecture steeped in New England roots. The inn was built in 1868 as a small barbershop on Main Street in Mendocino. The third story was added in 1873 to provide living quarters for the barber, John Barry, and his family. In 1884 the building became a “high class” Restaurant, The Oyster and Coffee Saloon. The owner at that time, W.J. Wilson, used the upstairs as an annex to The Wilson Hotel.

George Switzer purchased the house in 1893 and moved it to the present location on the corner of Howard and Albion Streets in Mendocino. It was transported by horses pulling the house over logs which were used as rollers. More recently the house was known as the Bessie Strauss House. Bessie and her husband, John, bought the house in 1924 and resided here until 1979. Four of the Inn’s rooms carry the names of these previous owners.

Whether you have a lifelong dream to be an innkeeper, or if you desire to live the lifestyle of Mendocino while enjoying the benefits of an income generating property, the Headlands Inn would be the perfect choice.
