Relax & Rejuvenate
Hummingbird Haven, a serene and comfortable two-room suite with a private garden entrance, a queen-sized FloBed bed, and amenity-filled bathroom, looks out on 3 acres of a sweeping meadow with a heritage apple orchard. Hummingbird feeders punctuate the landscape and bring an entertaining array of the tiny birds. Butterflies, ravens, the occasional fox, and blue heron, not to mention a multitude of bees, also populate the surroundings.

Breakfast & Kitchenette
From coffee, teas and cocoa (available throughout the day) to freshly made granola and locally baked multigrain bread to organic fruit and yogurt, your breakfast selections are waiting in your suite upon your arrival. Enjoy on your own schedule in the light-filled sunroom or outside on the deck. If you prefer a menu that includes vegan or gluten-free selections, I’m happy to offer satisfying choices.
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 Hwy 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 convinient 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 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.
For many years I owned, cooked and baked at Café Beaujolais in Mendocino, where breakfast, lunch and dinner were enjoyed by locals and tourists alike. Breakfast, my favorite meal, featured both homey favorites and distinctive specialties. Recipes from all three meals are included in the two cookbooks I wrote, Cafe Beaujolais and Morning Food.
In addition, from 1996-2000, I ran a B&B I helped create in a 12th century Austrian castle. There I realized how much I enjoy a greater degree of personal contact with guests than working in a kitchen allowed. At Hummingbird Haven, both interests are interwoven in yet another beautiful setting–the tree-lined, flower-filled property I’ve been lucky to call home for over 30 years.
