Why Wendy and Don Roberts chose Mendocino
Living near the ocean has always been a priority for us and the Village of Mendocino won our hearts because of the spectacular bluff top setting and the rural community with its strong focus on the arts and on preservation of the town and its natural environment. It's a privilege to live here and welcome others to this very special place.
What makes this Cottage unique
Staying in the heart of Mendocino Village allows our guests to enjoy its scenic beauty and share the slower pace and peaceful spirit of our rural community. Comfortable shoes are welcome wherever one goes...from one of the excellent restaurants, to a whale watching cruise, a hike up Big River, a Music Festival concert, Film Festival screening, Writer's Conference seminar...or just prop them up on our tree stump 'footrest' and lounge on the Tower porch with a good book.

We had the best vacation ever! Wind and rain did not lessen the fun of staying in this magical place! A short walk to the bluffs, waves and beaches we could climb to. We hid in caves watching the surf and seals go by! The hosts were the best! If we are lucky, we can return!!! The view was awesome and each floor was special in its charm!
We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Tower and were undaunted by the stormy weather. It was a pleasure to meet you. Warm regards.
All beds in the house were good except for the sofa bed that should be replaced if listed to sleep 5. Very uncomfortable.
Nice, clean, and cozy!!
My fiancé and I absolutely love the tower! I have been coming to Fort Bragg/ Mendocino since I was born and this is one of my most favorite places to stay! It is so clean, and cozy. The location could not be any better, its close to the local grocery store, and downtown Mendocino! I would definitely recommend the Tower to anyone looking for a perfect vacation getaway!
Thank you for your enthusiastic review of the Tower. We've enjoyed making it available to guests over the years.
We really enjoyed this lovely retreat. The view from the widow’s walk is amazing and the garden is wonderful. Wendy and Robert are friendly and accommodating. Also great location. The only missing thing is maybe another chair or 2 for dining. I would highly recommend this charming place.
Thank you for your reviews. We enjoyed meeting you and your family. We're glad you were able to get together in the Tower with some of the other wedding guests. Just sorry you didn't ask to borrow a chair or two since it's only equipped to host registered guests.
Sweet little place, great location! The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because we had a serious problem with ants which was a pain! I think this is probably a problem in this area because of the moisture! Also, we did fine, but if you have knee problems the stairs might be a problem, there are three stories! The owners are kind and attentive!
We're glad you enjoyed your stay and sorry for the cookie-inspired ant invasion. Thank you for keeping us posted about changes in the size of your group. I hope you enjoy the Louise Penny novel. It's the first in an engaging series.
Quaint, cozy and fabulous views!
So glad we got to stay here for our annual mom/daughter getaway! The water tower is much roomier that it appeared in the photos- there was plenty of room for all of us to hang out together or find our own space to relax. We can’t wait to come back!
Thank you for choosing the Tower for your getaway and for writing such a positive review. We're glad you had an enjoyable stay.
