5 Tips for Your Mendocino Romantic Getaway 

1. Have Breakfast at Circa ‘62

Start each day of your romantic getaway with breakfast at our on-site restaurant, Circa ‘62. The restaurant boasts intimate, table-for-two service with distant ocean views. We offer an extensive breakfast menu, which features everything from huevos rancheros to kimchi pancakes! If you’re craving something sweet, we recommend the dark chocolate chia seed pudding. We recommend you and your special someone order two different dishes each morning to share! 

2. Visit Mendocino Hot Springs

A dip in Mendocino hot springs is the nature retreat you need! Hot springs are small bodies of heated groundwater that have risen to the Earth’s surface. It’s like soaking in an all-natural hot tub, surrounded by the peaceful sights and sounds of nature. Orr Hot Springs and Vichy Hot Springs are the most popular destinations for this type of relaxation in our area. Enjoy the healing powers of hydrotherapy as your worries melt away. 

3. Explore Mendocino National Forest 

For the more adventurous couple, we recommend a visit to Mendocino National Forest! This California nature area gives visitors a variety of ways to explore. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding are some popular ways to get acquainted with the area. Make it a date day when you pack lunch! There are some picnic areas of the Mendocino National Forest that allow for lunch with a view.

4. Relax at the Spa

A trip to our spa is the perfect bookend to any day of your romantic getaway in Mendocino! Our yurt-style spa is one of the best in the area. Enjoy ocean views, a canopy of overhead trees, and, most importantly, first-class spa treatments. Book any massage service and select the Tandem Treatment enhancement at no extra charge! 

5. Retreat to Your Romantic Accommodation at Inn at Schoolhouse Creek

Stay in one of our Cottages during your Mendocino romantic getaway! These comfortable accommodations feature ocean views and exceptional amenities.
