Pet Activities

There is no better place to bring your four legged family member than the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek and the Mendocino Coast. Upon arrival the desk will provide dog bowls for food and water, a frisbee to play fetch with, and a treat. Ask the front desk for more information on the limitless possibilities and best places to go exploring with your dog.

A stay at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek will be a vacation your pet will appreciate. We have a pet welcome basket full of items to ensure a comfortable stay for your pet and a Frisbee waiting for you upon arrival. Our meadow and forest creek trails provides great room for your pet to enjoy off leash exploration. Take a short 3 minute walk (approximately 150 yards) to the private beach at Buckhorn Cove, where your dog can play off the leash! Upon return, we have a pet bath at the Inn for your convenience.

Pets are not allowed in the farmhouse during breakfast due to health code regulations however guests are welcome to bring a tray back to your room or cottage to dine with your pet.

Mendocino’s scenic coast and beautiful state parks provide a great place for you to explore with your pet. There are many parks and beaches near by that your pet is sure to enjoy. Take a trip to Mendocino Headlands State Park, Friendship Park or Navarro State Park where your pets are welcome, but must remain on leash.

There are several restaurants in Mendocino with outdoor seating that welcome your pets:

  • Mendocino Bakery
  • Silver’s at the Wharf
  • Bay View Café
  • Moosse Café
  • Frankie’s
  • Ravens (Vegan Restaurant – in the lounge only)

Your pets are our guests too and we’ll strive to make them feel like they are on vacation as well! All of our rooms at the Inn accept pets. There is a “pet fee” added to your room fee to cover the additional costs in cleaning. We deep clean and ionize each room after a pet has been in it to insure the highest standards of cleanliness for all our guests.
