This place is like stepping back in time. It has an excellent location. The grounds are rustic as are the "cabins". We stayed in the "Here" and "There" cabin. The floor in the "here" cabin feels as though there is no support, the "There" bathroom has absolutely no place to sit your toiletries, and there is so much "stuff" sitting... More

We stayed at The Andiron for two nights as quite a big group, which was fabulous. But it would have been just as awesome as a couples-destination (many honeymooners here, people!). The cabins are unique, well equipped and fantastic in design as well as function. The reception area needs to be experienced as the unique little slice of heaven it... More

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

You guys were great guests, and that sweet Foxxy pooch of yours stole our hearts. Thanks for staying and for your kind review. We hope you'll visit again soon. Oh! And you're totally right! Calling Kate is the very best way to choose a room - she won't steer you wrong. 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

Why thank you, cousin! We knew you'd love the suite, and not just because it was about your Aunt Millie and Uncle Bill. It's pretty riveting. Come back soon. Seriously. 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

Hi there Pamela! Sounds to us like you did everything right at The Andiron! We do tell people the hot tub is a little bit magical, but we've never heard the environs described as a fairy glen...and we like it! I'm sure our little beggars (those rascally goats!) loved visiting with you. They love people and treats. If they could... 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

Thanks for your nice review! I'm sorry the highway noise bugged you - what were planners thinking putting the highway right next to the ocean where all the inns are? It does get pretty quiet at night, perfect for using that telescope to see the stars. Hope you enjoyed that. Oh! And we just hit up an estate sale and... 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

The Andiron is 11 one- and two-room cabins perfectly situated on five acres of meadow and woods on Highway 1 in Little River, California. 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
