Alegria Oceanfront Inn & Cottages
Alegria Oceanfront Inn & Cottages is situated on the ocean side of Main Street in historic Mendocino Village. The inn property consists of the Main House and a collection of cottages nestled on a bluff overlooking Big River Beach and an ever-changing ocean cove. Guests can enjoy beautiful perennial gardens, an ocean view deck, and a path to the beach.
Other properties under the Alegria umbrella include the Raku House, a collection of four spacious separate lodgings within a craftsman style house located diagonally across the street from the ocean side property, the Village Farm Retreat, a 2 story studio duplex within a Victorian farmhouse on a sylvan property 2 blocks away, and the Dolphin House, a one-of-a-kind handmade house on the edge of the earth 3 miles north of Mendocino Village with incredible, wide ocean views.
Big River Beach – 200 footsteps down the bluff on Alegria's beach trail. The trail around the Headlands State Park begins at the beach.
Closest shop – across the street (Moore's Used Books)
Closest gallery – two blocks west on Main Street (Highlight Gallery)
Closest restaurant – one block north on Evergreen Street (Cafe Beaujolais)
Always in transition, the perennial garden, under the guidance of master horticulturist Jaen Treesinger (featured in Horticulture magazine) and gardener Dan Salmond, is a showcase of interesting and unusual plants, as well as beautiful antique roses.
Guests staying at the Alegria Main House and Cottages enjoy a full breakfast in their ocean view dining room. Deck seating is available in good weather. Breakfast is made fresh daily and features organic ingredients sourced as locally as possible. They begin with fresh fruit hand selected from a local organic food store and organic juices. Organic teas and coffees are served, as well as hot chocolate individually made with Alegria's own blend of cocoa powder. Chef’s choice entrees include frittatas, baked egg dishes, pancakes, waffles and locally sourced sausage. Baked goods are always made in-house from scratch. Special diets are gladly accommodated.
