mendocino spring flowers

Spring Greetings!

The flowers are in full bloom here at Joshua Grindle Inn! Their thirst was quenched by the very wet winter and the sun is now warming them to their most spectacular showy selves. Our gardens are laden with lilies, irises, roses, poppies and of course, the beautiful “Rhodies”.

Please visit our GALLERY to see new springtime (and parlor) photos!

Spring will be turning to Summer soon so we wanted to make sure you were aware of all the great events going on in and around Mendocino. Below are some of our favorites:
