Our stay at Margaret’s place was great, everything was perfect, communication, local tips, hospitality, cleanness, thoughtful touches, always making sure we did not need anything. The place is perfect for a couple traveling, full guest suite, with everything you could need, in a really nice environment and intimacy. I would definitely recommend and plan to come back during the spring to see Margaret’s garden and the botanical gardens with flowers blooming.
Margaret’s place is just as described. This is our second time staying with her so obviously we enjoy it. Margaret thinks of everything and works hard to make a guest’s stay as comfortable and rewarding as possible. She tailored her amenities to fit our requests for both special dietary needs and mountain biking routes. She’s just across highway 1 from Mendocino itself, on a quiet side road with spectacular plants and wildlife to watch – even in December.
Our second stay at the Hummingbird Haven was just as magical as the first! We absolutely adore every moment spent in this wonderful space and the incredible woman who runs it. This will always be our first choice when it comes to a Mendocino getaway. Already looking forward to next time!
What a lovely, restful and beautiful place – a Mendocino version of an English country garden. So close to town and yet away. It is indeed a haven for hummingbirds as well as humans. I hope to return often. Thank you, Margaret, for being such a warm, welcoming host.
Margaret’s place is right next to the main town part of Mendocino so it was very convenient as a central location. At the same time, it was secluded enough so you felt like you were in the middle of the woods. Her garden was so beautiful and she was such a great welcoming host. Of our 4 visits to Mendocino, our stay at Margaret’s was the best experience for us.
Margaret’s Hummingbird Haven was by far the best Airbnb [in which] I’ve stayed. The suite is beautiful, clean, with everything provided including a custom-prepared breakfast. Margaret is the most thoughtful person I’ve met. We were pampered with comfort, quality, and beauty throughout our stay.
I have stayed at AirB locations around the world. Many of them are pretty – Margaret’s is stunning. A short ride up the hill from the heritage seaside town of Mendocino, the garden setting and surrounding trees are a sanctuary. Margaret is a wonderful host, providing lovely treats from the organic market she manages. We look forward to going back.
About Your B&B Host
For many years I owned, cooked, and baked at Café Beaujolais in Mendocino, where locals as well as tourists enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Breakfast, my favorite meal, featured both homey favorites and distinctive specialties. I’ve included recipes from all three meals in the two cookbooks I’ve written, Cafe Beaujolais and Morning Food.
Previously, from 1996 to 2000, I ran a bed-and-breakfast I helped create in a 12th century Austrian castle. It was there that I realized how much I enjoyed more personal contact with guests than I had while working in a kitchen. At Hummingbird Haven, I’ve interwoven both interests in a beautiful setting – the tree-lined, flower-filled property I’ve been lucky to call home for over 30 years.
Hummingbird Haven is located in Mendocino, on the northern California coast – on a tree-lined road, in a quiet residential neighborhood. Just beyond the first fog line, it’s often sunny here when it’s foggy downtown.
