2 Nights / 3 Days for Two Guests at the Stanford Inn by the sea

With your stay, you will also enjoy two complimentary breakfasts and one dinner at the Ravens Restaurant. Inspired by the Stanford’s Certified Organic gardens, Ravens Restaurant, featured in Oprah Magazine, is outstanding and nationally acclaimed for gourmet plant-based cuisine. It is the essential dining experience on the Mendocino Coast.
But wait, there’s more! The Stanford Inn will also offer a leisurely canoe adventure for two down the Big River where you will truly immerse yourself in the surrounding nature. You may even see some local wildlife, like the harbor seals and river otters.
VIP organic vineyard tour, wine tasting, and private lunch with the owners of Yorkville Cellars | Celebrating 25 harvests.
Not only will you get to explore the Mendocino coastline, but you will also venture into Mendocino wine country! At Yorkville Cellars, the owners are looking forward to hosting the two lucky winners with an in-depth guided tour of our certified organic vineyards. Throughout the tour, we promise to pass along valuable insight and wisdom on all things grapes, vines, and Bordeaux varietals. After your walk through our vineyards, we know you’ll be hungry and ready to taste through our portfolio of wines– that’s when you’ll be treated to a delicious lunch and VIP wine tasting experience.
Once you’ve finished your tasting experience and determined which wines are your favorites, we’ll pack them up in a 12-bottle VinGardeValise® wine suitcase, provided by FlyWithWine, and send you on your merry way!
Dinner for two at the Albion River Inn Restaurant
Showcasing the coastal cuisine of Chef Stephen Smith, Albion River Inn Restaurant celebrates California's local bounty– indulge in fresh seafood, locally grown produce, wild mushrooms, fruit, and succulent entrees. Large windows provide spectacular ocean views from every table, and a cozy fireplace and burnished bar lend a soft romantic glow to the tastefully decorated interior. This dinner will be a memorable one, to say the least!
Two tickets to ride the historic Skunk Train
Northern California is most famous for its growth of the redwood trees, the largest and tallest trees in the world, which is why we can’t let you leave Mendocino without seeing them! Since 1885, the historic Skunk Train has made its way through old-growth redwood groves, over scenic trestle bridges, through spectacular tunnels, and into the heart of the Noyo River Estuary. You will enjoy the same pristine views that have remained largely unchanged for well over a century.
Last but not least…
Unlimited golf for two w/ a cart at The Little River Inn Golf Course
The expansive feeling of coastal golf will permeate your visit as you enjoy one of Northern California’s most established and hospitable resorts, Little River Inn, which boasts the only golf course on the Mendocino Coast. Tucked among the hills and redwoods, the nine-hole course presents unexpected challenges to golfers. It may be that the stunning ocean views distract first time players, or a wandering deer crossing the putting green. Either way, the distractions are enjoyable ones, to say the least.
