We, hubby and I, first stayed there about 4-5 years ago. We go each year with a large group of 20+ people and we pretty much book all the rooms. This place is Awesome for large groups! While there we hand out side on the lawn area and the bbq area and enjoy each other's company while looking at the...

We decided to take our 2 senior dogs with us on a last minute getaway Christmas weekend 2016. The staff was very nice, having dog beds and treats ready for us in our cottage, and even making a dinner reservation for us. The cottages are clean and bright and well stalked with kitchen supplies and plenty of towels and toiletries....

This is a gem of a spot outside Mendocino. Pet friendly, clean, helpful management. We can't wait to return. We stayed 4 nights in Elk cottage. This cottage is the closest to the road (and to the ocean) and has wonderful views. I was worried about noise, but this wasn't a problem. The front window was sprung, which made it...

The cottages are in a good location and seem well built, but the property was not very well managed: 1. Management was completely unresponsive over email (no response at all) in the weeks before checkin despite several enquiries. I've never had this happen at any hotel anywhere around the world. 2. The cottages use cheap and uncomfortable polyester sheets instead...

The Cottages at Little River Cove are set just above Hwy 1 and look out toward the sea. The views are truly spectacular! Little River is just two miles south of the adorable old-fashioned town of Mendocino. We liked the proximity to the town, and the walking path to Van Damme State Park with its fern trails and pigmy forest....

Great location with ocean views. We stayed in the Little River House. Clean, cozy and comfortable. We arrived quite late in the evening but the lights were on, the heater was set, the hot tub was warm and the beds were comfortable. House was perfect size for our family of three but could easily accommodate 4-5. The innkeepers were friendly...

The location is directly across the street from the Pacific Ocean and lovely. While the pet stains on the carpet upstairs were a bit unsightly, the cottage was clean and spacious. The host/hostess were kind and helpful and the grounds are kept up quite well. A communal fire pit, grill and pet area were convenient and enjoyable. The supplies in...

We stayed in the Elk cottage with views of the ocean and sounds of surf. The kitchen was supplied with good coffee and creamer. Nearby hiking trails along the ocean cliffs. Dog beds and water dishes were supplied. Lots of birds (Steller jays) and bird feeders. Friendly staff. A perfect getaway.

We found this quaint property while on a girl's road trip up the coast. We stayed in the Ignacio cottage, and it was perfect. The cottage was stocked with everything we needed; it was clean, comfortable, and had an ocean view. We enjoyed watching the sunset every night from the fire pit area. The innkeepers were extremely accommodating and gave...

Stayed in Elk cottage, nearest to the ocean and could hear the wave breaking all night from our bedroom. Nice view of breaking surf from living room through picture window. Fully equipped kitchen, nice TV, DVD and sound system. Very friendly and helpful staff. I would go again!
