Welcome to the
Mendocino, California
Great Rooms - Convenient Location
Beautiful Views - Reasonable Rates
In the Heart of Mendocino
The Perfect Combination!
The Nicholson House Inn

Nicholson House Inn was originally built in about 1905.  It served as home to 3 generations of Nicholsons until the 1970's when I became the owner.  It's undergone a few remodels and additions since it was originally built but still has the look and feel of its historical character.  Many of the doors, windows, hardware, trim and other elements around the main building are original materials. 

The property is located in the Heart of Mendocino adjacent to an open meadow and looks out to the sea.  We have great rooms, plush feather beds, beautiful ocean views, reasonable rates, pet and child friendly. We also offer friendly service, complementary continental breakfast,  and free Wi-FI.  We are conveniently located next to restaurants and spas. You can park your car when you get here and never need it again until you are ready to leave.  Since the whole town is surrounded by the ocean, it is an easy stroll to Big River Beach, the Headlands State Park and around town.

Mendocino Village is located on the rugged Mendocino Coast of Northern Californa..where the redwoods meet the rugged Pacific Ocean. An historical preservation district filled with boutique shops, art galleries and fine restaurants.

General Information
The Nicholson House Inn offers a variety of room types.  Each room has it's own theme and characteristics.  We have several individual bedrooms for 2 people at very reasonable prices.  We also have 2 apartment suites that can sleep 4.  Each of these suites has a living room, kitchen and bedroom.  All rooms have private baths. 
We have a variety of rates to accommodate various seasons and situations.  Summer time is the high season and winter is low season.  In addition we have reduced rates on weekdays.  We always have at least one room per night for less than $100 but it goes quick so best to make your reservations long in advance.

  Our rates are some of the lowest in town already.  They are already discounted to be less than just about every inn in the town of Mendocino.  As such, we have limited discount programs.  We do, however, offer a loyalty program.  Stay 10 times and get your 11th night free.  Just tell us you want to join when you make your reservation or check in.

The overwhelming number of guests we get are very happy satisfied guests.  See what some of them have to say about their stay.


Nicholson House Inn serves a Continental Breakfast in our newly developed dining area next to the main building.  Breakfast is served between 8:30 am and 9:30 am.  Our continental breakfast is very filling, hearty, healthy and tasty.  Each day there are a variety of fresh baked goods, cereals, fruits, bagels, muffins, meats, cheeses and hard boiled eggs.
