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!

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.

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.

Andiron is one of those places that tries and almost gets it right. In an attempt to be cute they try to put posters on the wall and recycled material in the room, but sticking posters on the wall without care makes the room look cheap and sloppy. With a little more care and effort this could have been a... More

Hi Jerry! We are sorry you didn't have a good time at our place. We're also a little surprised! Since you added an additional night to your stay, we sort of assumed you were perfectly satisfied. We so wish you'd mentioned your unhappiness - we would gladly have moved you to another room more to your liking or recommended a... More

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

Hi! We think "unique experience" is a good thing! But maybe you don't? That's okay. The Andiron is not your regular motel-on-a-road-trip kind of thing, and that's just how we like it. It isn't for everyone! Rest assured, that squeaky floor board isn't hiding anything but a squeaky floor board - typical 55-year old cabin stuff. And speaking of "stuff,"... 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

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
