The Beach Trail Cottage of Glendeven Inn is a quiet, cozy and bright vacation real at the head of a beach trail at Van Damme State park, just three doors down from Glendeven Inn.

On this day, we had a guest arriving who ordered a romance package including Roederer Sparkling Wine, this beautiful bouquet, and a cheese board on arrival!

This is Dawn King.  She's not been Photoshopped in any way.  (This chicken needs no post-production work.)

I think it's the only image of her we have that shows her eyes.  She can't see up because of her hairdo.  That's Penelope in the background.  Of our 120 chickens on property, these are the only two with names.  You can see why.  Personality plus.

And they get to roam free on the property.  The egg-production girls have a nice life with lots of greens, all the kitchen and yard scraps and large yards to run in, but these two have the run of the place.

In this year's batch of chickens, we got some silkies and more bantams.  So they'll be a larger-small flock of fancy girls running around the inn grounds soon.

A Hawk in the Coop. What?!

These pictures speak for the themselves, but....

This Cooper's hawk somehow got into the chicken coop through the little chicken door.  Besides needing therapy, all the girls are fine.  I let the hawk out through the people door.  Another day, another story at Glendeven.

Once he flew out, we herded the girls back inside where they'd be safe.

20 Minutes Around Glendeven Inn Mendocino

Today I walked the property double-checking that everything was in place before the full house check-ins.  And this is what I saw.  Enjoy.  -- John

Getting ready for the new art show!

Partner's Gallery artists are coming back for a two-month show at Glendeven and we're so happy!  We rearranged the Wine Bar[n] a bit in order to be ready for them.  Here are some "before" pictures.
