How to Find the Blair House
Blair House Inn is 150 miles north of San Francisco. It is a 3-½ to 4 hour drive via US 101 & CA 128. If you prefer to take the Pacific Coast Highway, (CA 1), along the coast, allow at least seven hours.
It’s best to fill up your gas tank on the 101 corridor before heading to Mendocino. There's one gas station in Mendocino, and it's very expensive. Fort Bragg, ten miles north, has competitively priced gas.
From The South:
Going north on U.S. 101, take CA 128 west, at the northern end of Cloverdale. If you're driving after business hours, be sure to stop for gas on 101 or in Cloverdale. Highway 128 is a beautiful drive through the Anderson Valley, which is known for picturesque vineyards, plentiful fruit orchards and majestic Redwood trees. Many travelers enjoy wine and juice tasting along the way and stopping at produce stands. Stay on 128 to the ocean and then proceed north on CA 1. Go ten miles and enjoy the magnificent ocean views. At the first stop light, turn left onto Little Lake, and continue with directions below.**
From The East:
Take CA 20 west to U.S. 101, then turn left (south) and proceed through Ukiah. In southern Ukiah, take CA 253 west to Boonville, where you'll join up with folks headed to Mendocino from the south, proceeding on CA 128 westbound through the Anderson Valley to the Coast.**
From The North:
Take U.S. 101 to the turnoff for CA 1 at Leggett. Proceed to the coast and continue south through Westport, Fort Bragg, Caspar and on to Mendocino. Turn right onto Little Lake Street, at the stop light, and continue with directions below.**
** From Highway 1 at Little Lake Rd.
Go three blocks west on Little Lake to Lansing Street, where Little Lake takes a little jog to the left. Stay on Little Lake for one more block and you’ll see Blair House on the corner of Little Lake and Ford Streets.
Blair House is the large Victorian house with a white picket fence.
