MENDOCINO COUNTY, CA -- (February 2009) -- Romance is alive in Mendocino County, California, from the verdant rolling hills of wine country to the dramatic Pacific coastline. Quaint Victorian inns, spa resorts, turn key rental properties, hotels, motels, and everything in between offer a variety of options, including many with astonishing affordability for a cozy retreat that won’t break your budget.


It’s no wonder that a Mendocino County inn was just named one of the Top 10 Romantic Inns in the country by American Historic Inns*. Mendocino has long been a favorite secret spot for weddings and honeymoons, as the ways to recharge and rekindle are almost limitless in this peaceful paradise 90 miles north of the Bay Area. Canoeing and kayaking, horseback rides on the beach, browsing in art galleries and open studios, wine tasting and fabulous dining, contemplative walks underneath ancient Redwoods, or luxurious spa treatments – Mendocino has activities for everyone at old fashioned prices that are bound to please. Let this Valentine’s Day be the beginning of your beautiful relationship with Mendocino County.


Here are just a few of the packages that are offered in Mendocino County at this time of year:
