Perched on the edge of the Pacific, just miles south of the village of Mendocino, the family-owned Little River Inn has been welcoming guests for five generations. Little River Inn offers guest rooms for all budgets, all featuring stunning ocean views, and many with fireplaces, luxurious steam showers, Jacuzzi tubs, or individual hot tubs. Dramatic and ever-changing ocean views provide a breathtaking backdrop for your stay. You can walk down the hill from the main Inn into beautiful Van Damme State Park or to Van Damme State Beach. Explore the redwoods on miles of gentle hiking trails, discover the unique Pygmy Forest, relax on the beach, explore amazing tidepools, or take a kayak out on the water.
Golf enthusiast? Our nine-hole course is tucked among the hills and redwoods, and presents unexpected challenges to golfers. It may be that the stunning ocean views distract first time players, or it may be a wandering deer crossing the putting green – this is an Audubon-certified sanctuary, after all.
Our indoor dining offers ocean and garden views and the garden patio is cozy and pet friendly.
The Little River Inn is renowned for its signature family-friendly hospitality – and that means we welcome families with open arms. This extends naturally to the four-legged members of your family as well, and there are many pet friendly accommodations from which to choose.
