The Farmhouse at Schoolhouse Creek

A relaxing space for reading a good book or playing games with friends and family. Need to get some work done while you’re staying with us, or are you finishing up that novel? Whatever your needs may be, the Farmhouse welcomes you.

In 1862, just ten years following the arrival of the first settlers on the Mendocino Coast (and a year before Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address), mill owner and rancher Charles Perkins built the Inn’s historic Ledford Farmhouse. In 1888 Perkins built a mansion on the hill to the south of the Inn and in so doing renovated the farmhouse to give to his daughter as a wedding present. The coffered old growth redwood ceilings were added for the wedding and were quite the statement of affluence and style for the time. Since we have opened we have done our best to live up to the beauty of Mr. Perkins’s home. Some of our guests and staff think he’s still here!
