I was talking to a friend earlier today about anniversaries. During the course of the conversation I realized that in 2 months from today, Fred and I will have been Innkeepers for 15 years. That is when we moved to the Mendocino Coast and Dennen’s Victorian Farmhouse. Over the next two months I will write little stories about our adventures and the people who make up the rich fabric of this very special place we call Dennen’s.
This weekend is the Little River Whale Festival. It includes a sale on rooms. Stay Three Nights, 2 at Regular Rate and the Third Night is free. (If you can only stay 2 nights, we will still give you our Winter Rates) Things to do and enjoy start on Friday Evening with a presentation by Volunteers of the Marine Mammal Center. That includes a Bonfire, marshmallows and cocoa. All weekend there will be food and wine, talks, walks, photography and whales with Ron LeValley and Sunday brings it to a close with a peek into the Spring Ranch Barns! The Taste of Little River is $25 per person. All money raised goes to preservation of the barns! Give us a call, come stay and play!
January 18 thru January 27, 2013 Is the 14th Annual Crab and Wine Days. We are celebrating as usual. Crab in every breakfast and topped off by our Crabulious Wine Tasting with Navarro Vineyards on Saturday Jaunuary 26. It starts at 5:30PM. Free to our guests! $20 per person for those of you not staying with us. Yummm!
Like many of you, we have friends and family on the East Coast. This Hurricane has been horrific and we feel very powerless. Fred and I would like to help, however we need your help to do it. So starting tomorrow and thru November 18, we will donate 25% of your two night stay, in that time period. Any room any days, two night minimum. Please call us, come visit and help us help all those on the East Coast.
Our favorite celebration of the year is the Mendocino July 4th Parade. The town closes and a parade, like no other, goes around the town. Locals and Visitors line the streets and the party starts and goes on into the evening. Make plans to join us in our Mendocino bed and breakfast for a fun filled July 4th celebration.
Other Mendocino Festivals and Events in July Include:
- Willits Frontier Days – a fun rodeo.
- California Wine Tasting Championship – anyone can watch the experts that convene from around the world.
- World’s Largest Salmon BBQ – great food, friends and you help out a good cause.
- Mendocino Music Festival – blues, jazz, dancing and opera.
- Mendocino Arts Fair – 65 arts and craft booths with live music and great food.
Do something green… plant a tree, bulbs or flowers. We started the day with our traditional Green Eggs and Ham! Enjoy the day!
Here it is, the Thursday before The Little River Whale Festival, and the weather could not be more cooperative! Glorious blue sky, almost full moon, daffodils everywhere!!! It is almost balmy. There are still rooms available, stay 2 nights, getting the third night free. Come enjoy the festival, take part in the food, wine, activities, and still have time to play on the Mendocino Coast!
Yep, the Holidays are over and we have packed all the decorations away. It takes 4 days to put up and less than 4 hours to take down and pack, amazing!
So we are now gearing up for our Crab and Wine Days Wine Tasting with Navarro Vineyards! And, we have a great package for you! Check out our Packages Page for the complete deal. If you are not staying with us, you can ask us to hold a place for you by making a reservation. Only $20 per person.
Well the Holidays are upon us, yet again. Time sure does fly. Mendocino County is celebrating with a Festive Fortnight starting tomorrow December 2 and running thru December 14. Check out our Specials to see how we are celebrating this wonderful time. And do not forget to enjoy and appreciate the ones closest to you, whether here at Dennen’s or at home. Happy Holidays!!
We have tried to give you, our guest, a new and improved site so that you may have a better look at what we have waiting for you.
So please have a look around, savor our little piece of Mendocino paradise, and see if it is a fit for you. We would love to meet you and share Dennen’s with you.
Jo, Fred and Staff
