Mendocino Village stands proudly perched upon a small, slightly hilly peninsula on the ocean side of Highway One. Mendocino's front yard is surrounded on all three sides by the Mendocino Headlands coastal bluffs. It's open to the public and you're encouraged to explore the scenic trails with unobstructed views of Mendocino and the sparkling Pacific Ocean. Big River and stands of towering majestic redwood forests make up our picturesque back yard.

Agate Cove Inn


Mendocino was "discovered" by way of shipwreck. The Frolic, loaded with goods from China, struck rocks and ran aground just north of where the Point Cabrillo Lighthouse stands today. The crew made it into two life boats that ended up safely on Big River Beach. Some 8 months later, the search and recovery party headed by Jerome Ford, arrived to find the wreckage mostly gone, but what he found helped build Mendocino and a lot of San Francisco. He found wood, huge redwoods in fact, desperately needed to accommodate San Francisco's Gold Rush building boom.




FAQ: People seem to be fasinated by the water towers that dot the skyline. Some ask, what are they, others wonder if they're still in use. While some have been converted into housing, most are still functioning as the water source for the building they serve. Water is pumped from the ground, into the water storage tank on top of the tower, then gravity fed back down creating water pressure. In this time of drought, it's important to appreciate and conserve the rain that becomes the water we use everyday.
