The rooms are spectacular. The food is exceptional. Get here early and check out late. Its the best get away spot on the north coast. Some rooms have real wood fireplaces overlooking the coast.. You have to experience it.

After a beautiful drive along Highway 128, we arrived to a welcoming receptionist who directed us to the perfect room at Little River Inn. Everything looked like it had been scrubbed clean, including the walkways, lawns, deck chairs and even the sky. The ocean waves were spectacular all weekend and the sounds of the buoy bells tolling in the distance...

We sat in our room by the large picture window watching whales by day and by night, we turned our chairs to the woodburning fireplace. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The grounds are beautiful. We plan to go back every year.

Once a year, for several years, our group of friends meet here for relaxation, quietness, wonderful dining and convenience. The beautiful view of the ocean from each room is spectacular. Rooms are well appointed, and the staff is attentive and friendly. Little River Inn is a world away from the everyday busy life.

It was great from the first "hello". We had reserved a pet friendly room to include our Standard poodle and Westie. This was a first for us - a family vacation with the dogs. The Westie ran in first and returned proudly with her ziplock filled with dog treats! Our room felt like a private cottage with a wonderful view...

It really does not get any better than this, I could stay anywhere, I choose here. Private cottages, unbelievable resterant (and room service), watched whales migrate south from my porch for 2 days straight, not to mention the seals, otters, eagles, ospray, etc... The Little River Inn is the place to stay.
