This is where beauty will find you every day. Perched on the edge of the Mendocino Coast, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and serving visitors for more than 75 years, the Little River Inn is a fundamental part of Mendocino history. Generations have stayed here, year over year, and the stories they tell weave the tapestry that is the Little River Inn. Create your own tradition by booking your first stay at this gem of Mendocino, and discover why so many guests come back year after year.
Although Mendocino is full of a bounty of beautiful hotels, resorts, and bed and breakfasts, the Little River Inn is special like no other. From the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean from every room, to the beautiful grounds, to a world-class golf course, to an award-winning restaurant, to a cozy ocean-view bar, to friendly staff – nothing about staying here feels like less than a perfect getaway. The Little River Inn embodies the spirit of the coast – down-to-earth, beautiful, and the ideal place to write your own story of Mendocino.
The Little River Inn offers a wide selection of rooms – good for any budget, and giving you the chance to craft whatever experience you’re looking for. The good news is that every room boasts an ocean view, so really you’re left to decide whether you want more privacy, closer proximity to the ocean, a Jacuzzi, a fireplace, and other bonuses to your stay. But even if you go with the most barebones traditional room, you’ll still have the most important part – perfect views of stunning sunsets over the Pacific from your deck side chair.
If you’re looking for something a bit more special, check out their Seaside Luxury rooms. These are located just off of the main property, across Highway 1 near the ocean, and they are nothing short of stunning. Get one with a Jacuzzi bath and a romantic fireplace to really make your trip complete. These rooms are also a bit more private, and although the restaurant is somewhat further away, you can still order incredible room-service to enjoy a luxurious breakfast in bed.
While you’re staying here, take advantage of some of the amazing things to do nearby. If you love nature, you’re walking distance (via a private trail) to Van Damme State Park. At the beach you can take out a Kayak with Kayak Mendocino, or you can explore the miles of beautiful trails through the redwoods and the unique Pygmy Forest. A bit further south is the iconic Pt. Cabrillo Lighthouse, and Russian Gulch State Park, with its magical waterfall nestled deep within a forest of towering redwoods and primeval fern canyons.
Whatever it is you love, the Little River Inn will never let you down. And after 75 years of being family run, you can be confident it will be around for years to come, for you to come back to as you to continue to write your very own story of Mendocino.
