TheCrimeHouse on Vacation: Cabot Cove

…or rather Mendocino, California, because it was in this coastal town that “Murder, She Wrote” was shot.

According to unconfirmed sources nine episodes of the series were shot in Mendocino, but shots from the town were used in considerably more episodes. However, the most outdoor scenes take place by the water and those were shot on Universal’s backlot in southern California.

Jessica Fletcher’s house is located in Mendocino and you can spend a night in the house, since it has been a bed and breakfast for a long time.

I had to settle for a quick lunch and some shopping in the town, since we only had enough time for a day visit.

To think about if you want to visit the town

Be prepared on many winding roads if you drive here. We had rented a Prius and that was not the best car to take to Mendocino. There are plenty of hotels and bed and breakfasts; if you want to stay in Jessica Fletcher’s house you can make reservations here, but it seems to be one of the more expensive alternatives.
