“It doesn't get any better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2012

Second time back and I am still amazed at how wonderful BGI is. Where else do you sleep in Sferra linens - no micro fiber here! And the "light fare" wine hour is to die for. We had chicken breasts on kale that were to die for. I will be trying for days to recreate that dish! Great soak in the big tub with the window open to let in the sound of the ocean. The staff and proprietor are wonderful. Kudoos to the morning waitress, She was enthusiastic about the menu and anticipated every request. Stayed in the Osprey room which allowed us to view full moon setting on Brewery Gulch. We will return - as soon as we can!

My husband and I spent one night at the Brewery Gulch Inn during a quick getaway, and it totally exceeded our expectations in every way. It was a great alternative to the more traditional bed & breakfasts that dominate the Mendocino area. The room was spacious, comfortable, clean, and very private; the bathtub was one of the best I have ever used! The "great room" area was the biggest surprise- a huge open room with a central fire place and panoramic windows overlooking the ocean. I could have spent the entire day there and been perfectly happy with the trip. We actually ended up canceling our dinner plans because the light wine & buffet hour was so tasty and we were having so much fun hanging out & playing board games. I really can't say enough good things about our experience.

spent three days there and the place is truly magic. The property is beautiful with the forest and green fields in the back and views of the ocean in the front. Service and breakfast was excellent and so was the room. Location is about a mile from Mendocino town.

Room Tip: Osprey was a perfect size with views of the ocean, an over sized bath tub also with a view of the oc...

My husband and I have just completed another stay at the Brewery Gulch Inn. It is by far, our favorite Inn in the whole world. Gorgeous setting, wonderful owners, excellent food, tranquil ambience, a perfect place to relax and unwind. Less than 5 minutes to Mendocino, for daytime explorations. The food is magnificent, always good!! Champagne in our room in remembrance of our anniversary....I could on and on....Guy, the owner is a wonderful host....I am a flight attendant and have stayed in many places in many countries. This is our favorite!
