Still thinking of our wonderful time at the Andiron.. Every contact we had from the booking process to checkout was handled with care and attention. Kate walked me through the room selection process and helped us plan out an unforgettable anniversary. The rooms and grounds are exactly as described- We wanted to stay in Mendocino city but were glad we... More

In the interest of full disclosure, Mrs. Andiron is my cousin. Nevertheless, our overnight stay was everything we hoped for and more. We stayed in the two-room suite (Milly and Bill) dedicated to my aunt and uncle, Mrs. Andiron's parents, and decorated with memorabilia from their World War II-era courtship and marriage. For me, that sealed the deal right there,... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Andiron Inn. We arrived late but our room information was waiting for us in the box by the lobby. The room was small but cozy with a patio outside the cabin. The owners have thought of every possible comfort. Each room has a theme. We stayed in "Write." From the old typewriter,... More

Cabins are quiet and spacious enough with amenities that are useful for vacation travel, including games, movie rentals, books, and in our particular cabin, a telescope and binoculars. Management staff was kind and helpful, the room was clean but is not maintained everyday unless requested. Our only complaint was the specific location of our cabin (unit # 11), which is... More

The rooms here are two-room cabins built in the 1950s. The rooms are decorated from that time period. The place is well maintained and clean. Nice hot tub and a convenient location also. Owners are there on the weekends and host a happy hour and small plates reception on Friday and Saturday evenings. They and the staff are friendly and... More

A simply wonderful place to spend a few days. My wife and I stayed in the 'Read' cabin, which we loved. The decorations make it feel like a little cottage and there is a little kitchen to make breakfast or what have you. Each cabin has a little deck to sit out on and have a drink. There is also...

Stayed one night but should have stayed for two. Very comfortable ,quiet and friendly. The hot tub was great after a day of driving the beautiful coastal highway. We had the MAKE cabin and it was quite nice .

The cabin is located in Little River on HWY 1 and it is about 4 miles from Mendocino and a very easy drive. I enjoyed staying here rather than Mendocino. We were a bit skeptical when we pulled into the property as the cabin looks pretty rustic. However, once we opened the door, we were greeted by the soothing music... More

So glad you gave us a shot and had fun! And...we're glad we surprised you when you ventured inside. We totally agree: There really is nothing like sitting on the deck with a cold beverage and watching the world pass by. Come back soon! More

We love, love, love this place! Booked again this year for our birthday stay, then decided at the last minute to come up a day early. Kate was awesome and got us booked for an extra day and even had the room set up with a birthday greeting for me and a welcome back for our dog. What a nice... More

Pet friendly - you read the literature in the room and they have a stated aversion to barking dogs. Yet when I checked in, Kate had two dogs in the office, one of which first growled and then barked for a while. The cottage was okay, a little overly cute/ precious in decoration. Seem to be trying a little too... More

Minutes away from everything - beaches, wineries, diving, hikes, Mendocino, breweries, good food - but quiet, relaxing, and fun, our housekeeping cabins and rooms are each entirely unique and reflect our love of everything vintage, salvage, rehabbed, and recycled. ... more   less
