Dennis and Brent -
Thank you so much for the hospitality this weekend.  Everything was better than we could have expected.  The accommodations were great and so was the service.  Thanks for the tasty baked goodies. We will surely recommend your inn if we have friends coming to town.  Best,  Jaclyn and Dave

We had an absolutely fabulous stay here last weekend! Wonderful owner, great value, fantastic breakfast and perfect location. Thumbs up for sure!  Kristina

The Nicholson House is a hidden gem in Mendocino. It's location, right between two of the best restaurants in town (Cafe Beaujolais and 955), is perfect. The rooms are clean and luxurious, and the breakfasts were delicious. And the prices are very reasonable. What else can you ask for?  Allan005

Dear Dennis, I've done a lot of traveling this summer with three different daughters in various places, but Kristies and my weekend at your beautiful hotel was the highlight of my summer. Your rooms are exquisite and the most beautifully decorated down to the last detail, that I have ever stayed in, anywhere, and so comfortable.  I do thank you so very much for having us as your guests.

Finally getting around to thanking you for the wonderful room we had 8-12.  The room and view were wonderful, as well as the bed was yummily comfortable. Can't wait 'til our next trip. Also, have recommended Nicholson House to all my friends, you've got it all: location, best price in town, comfort, and perhaps best of all, you're in Mendocino! 
Thanks again, Pat
Thank you for the accommodations.  We enjoyed the quiet, the view and the comfortable bed!

Dear Dennis,
Thank you for the use and enjoyment of your Presbyterian Views Suite this past weekend.  We all enjoyed ourselves in and around Mendocino and we hope to spend more time there in the future.  The lovely accommodations you provided made for a wonderful weekend.

Deserves Way More Stars
We loved the place. Very nice little romantic B&B. Right near everything in downtown, but off the main St., so not a lot of traffic. The guy running it was very friendly and helpful about pointing out locations to visit. Breakfast was basic, but it was all we needed after the fancy dinners the night before.

I would lust like to say how much we enjoyed our stay with you, the room was great and the breakfast was the best we had in two weeks in the USA, we will defiantly come back again in the future.   Neil, UK
Great stay in Mendocino
This was actually a nice surprise! We saw some pictures in the web, but were actually impressed by the nice flat. The bed was like the ones you'd find in a castle. Very high, with 4 poles at each corner. Brent prepared the breakfast each morning and this is definitely another quality, than the stuff you get in a typical American hotel/motel- One could tell the day before what you wanted to have in the morning. You take your breakfast to your flat and have it there. There's a fully equipped kitchenette as well in the living room. Every thing was very clean. In deed the Nicholson House looks like recently restored...

We have left a perfect 10 on, since it was perfect. You have  a wonderful place and a super breakfast, well done and we can not say too much about your place.  It deserves a much higher rating when we come back we will stay again. Keith & Drusilla, The Netherlands We stayed 2 nights but wished we had been able to stay longer. The owner who booked us in was really friendly and helpful. We were warmly welcomed and the room was really cozy with nice decor and very well maintained. The breakfast was the best we had in out 2 week stay in the USA with a wide range of fresh high quality items. We will come back in the future as the hotel and its setting is ideal,
My husband and I were joined by our small canine and a good friend for 3 nights over the Thanksgiving Holiday. We stayed in the "Admiral's Deck" which was perfect for our group. The kitchen was small, but certainly adequate and nicely equipped allowing us to prepare a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner. You would not believe the expansive deck and pleasant outdoor seating with a nice peek of Mendocino Bay. The breakfasts that Brent provided each morning included a variety of cereals, fresh fruit, juices and freshly made baked goods to mention a only few of the delicious items offered. Dennis was very personable and helpful during our preservation phone calls; we are sorry to not have met him in person. Val from Oakland, CA
Rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. I am very impressed with the shower curtain that is so pretty so I took the vendors name from the tag to see if I can buy one for our bathroom. Breakfast is great. We were just expecting a continental breakfast but we got some cold cuts too and the cinnamon cake, muffins and scones are home made and freshly baked each morning. This is on top of the bagels and English muffins and the coffee is freshly brewed. Close to restaurants and shops and you can just walk around town. To top this all, they accommodated to store and lock our 2 bicycles in the laundry room. Very accommodating and we will surely come back.  Zeke from Kenwood, CA
A perfect combination of attention to every detail but feeling left alone to enjoy this extraordinary area. Our questions about sites and destinations were answered while we enjoyed conversation with some other visitors over fresh food at breakfast. And the bed was luxurious! A short walk or drive to great restaurants.  Guest from San Francisco, CA
This was a really lovely room in a town we wish we had had more time to explore. We would definitely go back and stay there again. Breakfast was served casually, and the selections were fine.  Kathryn from Cincinnati, OH
We stayed in the Admirals deck room, which was beautifully furnished, spacious and had a great deck to watch the sunset. It had a wonderful high bed, great bathroom, and a lovely living room to hang out in. The breakfast served was very nice, lots of options to choose from, and we had great service throughout our stay, and lots of privacy which we appreciated. In short, we had a great time, and would definitely come back to stay again.  From San Francisco, CA
Nicholson House offers a terrific combination of great location, lovely amenities, warm hospitality and a price point that works in today's economic environment. We'll definitely be back :)
