Inn & Spa

Relax on the beautiful Mendocino Coast


Eco Spa

Enjoy a soothing massage, relax in our outdoor redwood hot tubs, and emerge refreshed from our infrared and traditional cedarwood saunas.

  • Two nights of pure bliss. We never imagined our time here would be quite so perfect. The people and the atmosphere are unforgettable, and we only wish that every day could be spent at Sweetwater Gardens.

    From the Guestbook

  • What beauty of creation. A good feeling of life here, a few hours of respite from the harsh, demanding world. Give thanks for the precious moments.

    From the Guestbook

  • Sweetwater staff are attentive and helpful. The hot tub/sauna and massage facilities are cozy, clean and relaxing. The rooms are located in the middle of the village and within easy walking distance to all our favorite shops and dining venues. . .

  • This was the best weekend getaway ever! I loved our cottage...
    I especially loved how environmentally friendly and dog-friendly the inn was. They even had goodies for my doggie.
