The cottages are very clean, and the staff is super nice. We stayed in the Caspar cottage, which was a dog friendly cottage. You would never know that dogs had been there before. No smell or hair anywhere! We had two small dogs with us, and they provided a dog bed, dog towels and two doggie bowls. Very sweet!! They had a very low pet fee of $25/night. Our cottage also had a lovely view, and we booked it because it also had a spa on the back deck. The spa was meticulously clean, and nice and hot. What a great way to end a long day of hiking with the dogs! There were a few negatives about the place to be aware of: 1) This is a family friendly place, which is normally not a negative. But, there were 5 kids staying in the cabin next to ours, and their parents let them run around and scream like wild creatures for hours on the shared lawn next to all the cottages. Not very relaxing for the rest of us. I'm not sure how much the owners/managers could do about this... maybe ask them to tone it down a bit? 2) The spa in the Caspar cottage has a loose jet, which tumbles around and makes a bit of racket. Since it is right outside the sliding glass door next to your bed, it can be annoying. We let management know, and hopefully, it will get fixed. 3) There was a bit of mold around the shower area, which I smelled when entering the bathroom - it took me a while to find it, because it had been painted over. This should probably be remediated to rid the bathroom of the mildew smell. Thankfully, it was not overwhelming, and we shut the bathroom door.
They also provide a booster for your cell phone so you can get service and have a wi-fi service that worked great. They have a small selection of movies for you to borrow, and books to read. These were very nice touches that added a little extra to make your stay more comfortable. Very much appreciated.
This is a great place to stay, and we would go back. Little River is a very quiet place, and after the kids went to bed, it was so relaxing... to hear the ocean and the buoy bells, with the fog rolling in over the ocean.
