The Andiron is a great place: every detail has a history, the furniture is for the most part salvaged. We spent one night in the Read room: everything is so well-thought: whoopie pies and a little note to welcome us, books everywhere, a fireplace with logs ready to use, comfortable couches to read with a cup of tea/coffee, a retro...

I looked at all the b&b's in the area and then found The Andiron. The cabins are older and everything is retro. The website explains what to expect. It is perfect, simple and quiet. We had a wonderful stay and loved the personalized note and whoopie pies. The owner explained where everything was located and was very pleasant. If we... More

I am actually still here at the cabin and had to write this review; I am disgusted at the previous negative reviews. This place is unlike anything I have ever stayed in- even if you don't dig the decor, it's got to be appreciated for the level of detail and the care that has gone into this place. I do... More

I needed a long weekend -- just me and my dog -- near the ocean. Goal: to jerk my brain out of work funk and into relaxation mode. The Andiron, here we come. I landed in cabin #2 (Nature) amid antique campfire cookery books, watchful owl lamps, and a glorious wood burning stove. Aaaaaah perfection. My stay was so enjoyable.... More

We had such fond memories of being out here as a couple a few years ago that we came back - this time with our newborn in tow. From the moment we stepped into our cabin (the space- and science-themed Curious, complete with telescope, ViewMaster, bird call and more) we were reminded of the retro charm of the place. It's...

We paid over $200/night + pet fees. The cabin we stayed in (#3) was old and dirty. C'mon at least paint the place! The floors were squeaking and room smelled of urine. The bed was horrendous! We will never stay here again. So disappointed! I don't understand why folks gave this place good reviews. The Cottages at Little River is... More

Oh, whoa. Mycayla, if only you had told us you hated it so dang much...we would have done right by you. We would have set you up somewhere else much more to your liking, refunded your money and wished you well. You would have been so much happier and, honestly, so would we. Everybody would have won! For real! It's... More

First I want to say that I am still new to writing TripAdvisor reviews, but really wanted to take some time to provide my feedback of our experience at the Andiron. I did a lot of research into our stay on the Mendocino Coast before we traveled, because I wanted to take advantage of everything there was to offer, and... More

My fiancé and I spent one night at this lovely place with our dog, Henry. It was amazing and we regret only booking one night! Upon our arrival, I was greeted by a warm and cozy office lobby which was so uniquely decorated! Old books, board games, comfy couches, including fresh free organic eggs and fruit on the counter adorned... More

The Andiron is the kind of place where you actually want to spend some time at your hotel. So, I would recommend doing a better job than we did to schedule in a few daylight hours to just hang out in your room/on the deck/wandering around. We intended to use the grill but on our way to the grocery we... More

Had a great stay here in the Nature cabin - we barbecued on our verandah, enjoyed the hot tub and the firepit, and saw deer just outside the cabin. The accommodation is really well done with lots of thought and attention to detail. Just be aware that there is some highway noise.
