Subject: Mendocino lodging
Dear Ziners,

My husband and I and another couple will be spending 7 or 8 days in April beginning in San Francisco and driving up as far as Mendocino. I'm looking for great suggestions for a memorable place in Mendocino or thereabouts.

We would love to rent a 2-bedroom, 2-bath house with an ocean view (preferably viewing from a hot tub!) in Mendocino, Point Arena, etc. I've seen places advertised on the net in the neighborhood of $500 for two nights, which seems reasonable for two couples to split.

Do any of you have recommendations for that location and price range? I'd also like to hear about inns or B&Bs you love there with an ocean view. And I wouldn't mind hearing about places midway between San Fran and Mendocino either.

Thanks in advance to my trusty Ziners!
