When my husband and I take a road trip we will usually stay in cheaper hotels and motels to save a bit of money, but always try and plan one special night in a nicer place. By chance this time we managed to have two really nice evenings, one being at the Inn of the Lost Coast, and the other being here, at the Glendeven Bed and Breakfast in Mendocino, California. Both of which did not disappoint.
You are either searching for something special, or truly and utterly lost if you find yourself in Shelter Cove (otherwise known as the Lost Coast) in California. About 30 miles off of highway 1 you will find yourself in a place you can hardly believe is there. After winding through miles of forest, steep hills, and fog… just about when you are thinking to yourself “Where on Earth are we going??” , you will come out along the coast. The Lost Coast. There is little to no cell phone reception, no traffic, no stores even…just a small town on the edge of the ocean, waiting there for you to come visit and relax.
To be honest, I’m not exactly sure what drove us to visit this place. (Other than our little rental Kia) Niether of us had ever heard of it before, but something told us we would love it, and that we did.
