For the last 5 years we have been sending our Return Guests a postcard, via the post office. It lets them know about Special Unpublished Rates for the upcoming winter and spring. On December 7, we sent out an Email with that Special. So for those of you who have received it, don’t forget the discount is taken from the Winter Rates. If you haven’t seen it go through your emails and spam filters, find it, print it and come to Dennen’s on the Mendocino Coast!
It is time for Winter Specials! Check them out on the Specials Page! There will be another after the first of the year for Whale Watching. And for those of you who are Returning Guests we will have a Special Special for you again, too!
Look what we just earned! Wow! Thank you all. We take pride in taking care of you and we have always hoped it showed!
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.

Do something green… plant a tree, bulbs or flowers. We started the day with our traditional Green Eggs and Ham! Enjoy the day!
