As soon as we opened the door to our room and saw the view though the big picture window we were thrilled that this would be ours for two days. We could sit inside and enjoy the scene from our comfortable wing back chairs in front of the fireplace when it was cold, and could sit outside in the afternoon. The fire place is real wood and they have it all set so all you have to do is put a match to it and off it goes.....throw another log on, available next to the fireplace, if you don't want it to die out too quickly. We had dinner on premises and my husband said it was the best meat loaf he ever tasted. When we told them it was our wedding anniversary we were given the most delicious chocolates to take back to our room.
The nine hole golf course was the perfect way for my husband to start the next day. It is set into redwoods, with Bambi and Thumper hopping around. I had a perfect morning too with breakfast sent to the room and enjoyed painting a seascape with the gorgeous rocks with waves crashing on them, yes you can hear them. For a while we both watched the hummingbirds feeding on the abundant flowers in the landscaping. Understand, this is not a new property. It is well kept, but it does not have the posh décor of younger places. The bedding is top notch, with some of the most comfortable sheets I have ever had in a commercial establishment. It is just a short drive to get into Mendocino, and worth whatever length drive it takes to get you to the Little River Inn.
