Little River Inn

Little River Inn

Mendocino Coast is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parts of California, and some of us would argue, offers the most spectacular views of all. The Little River Inn takes full advantage of these remarkable vistas and offers guests the opportunity to experience the romance of the coastline in style.


Spanning five generations of experience, The Little River Inn integrates the best of coastal living and consummate comfort. All the rooms offer amazing views of the coast. Diverse room types offer guests varied options—fireplaces, Jacuzzi tubs, private hot tubs, and much more.


Guests will enjoy the great cuisine conceptualized and executed by Chef Marc Dym. Dym has an extensive culinary background, crisscrossing the globe from Texas to Zurich. While staying at the Little River Inn, guests have several dining options. The main dining room offers incredible views and diverse menu selections, including every conceivable type of protein—salmon, veal, steak and shrimp. Some will prefer to eat at Ole’s Whale Watch bar where the menu includes burgers, sandwiches, salads, meatloaf…and the infamous millionaire’s bacon. And, just like with every respectable inn…room service is always an option!


In addition to Little River Inn’s great accommodations and extensive dining options, guests can opt for a spa treatment or practice their stroke on the nearby golf links. The spa offers massages, skin care, manicures, pedicures, hair care, and aesthetician’s services, with options for both individual guests and wedding parties.


Ready to spend some time outdoors? Enjoy Mendocino coast’s only golf course while staying at the Inn. This 60-year-old course boasts nine holes that takes players through serene wooded locations providing views of the coast and the occasional wildlife. The Inn also offers two lighted tennis courts that are free for the guests to use.
