Mushroom season is coming!

The local Mendocino mushroom foragers supply some of the finest restaurants in the US, and they mushrooms literally right outside everyone's back door here in Mendocino.  

Many of the local restaurants hold private winemaker dinners in the Fall and the wineries have special tastings as well.  This year's festival is from November 1-10.

Find this year's Mushroom WIne and Beer Event information here .

Bee Hives

We are very please with how the bees have done this year! The hives are tall, and full of bees..... and full of nectar and honey!   The Mendocino area provides amazing  opportunities for pollen from a wide range of native and ornamental trees, bushes and flowers.

We are allowing the bees to over-winter with the fruits of their own labors, and will harvest the honey from whatever is left over in spring once they have over-wintered. 

If we harvest the honey now we will have to feed them sugar-water during the winter, and we think they're healthier to use their own stored nourishment.

The Naked Ladies in Mendocino

Everyone calls these pink flowers "Naked Ladies."   The "skirts" grow in June, and then die away after which time the flowers arrive, and the 'Ladies" stand there without their skirts.  Glendeven Inn Mendocino pretty much has the largest swath of these flowers.  Here is just one section.

This Amazing Mendocino Weather

The weather has been unbelievably beautiful with sunshine and blue skies.  The ocean has had the most amazing cast of blue that I've seen in a long time!  And there is more promised with September and October being the best weather months of the year.  We hope to see you at Glendeven or Cobbler's Walk  soon!

The Beach Trail Cottage

The Beach Trail Cottage of Glendeven Inn Mendocino is a quiet, cozy and bright vacation rental at the head of a beach trail at Van Damme State park, just three doors down from Glendeven Inn.

On this day, we had a guest arriving who ordered a romance package including Roederer Sparkling Wine, this beautiful bouquet, and a cheese board on arrival!
