Nestled on over 200 acres in Mendocino County, the Little River Inn is a quaint set of white Victorian buildings that sits off Highway 1. Guests enjoy big ocean views (all rooms but one have them) and whale watching in season from the comfort of their porch rocking chairs. Families throw baseballs and footballs on the large grassy areas that front the rooms and tennis courts and a nine hole golf course provide added diversions. There’s easy access to Van Damme State Park via walking path from hotel. Service at the family-owned property is attentive and comfortable. The restaurant serves some of the best food in the area and smaller portions are available for kids. The spa has excellent massages that hit the spot after a day of hiking or playing bocce at the nearby wineries.
