Staff was excellent as was the accomodations. Clean, well equipped cottage with nice view of ocean. More is offered than it shows on website. Great place. Will be recommending to our friends and family.

I planned a 40 birthday weekend for my friend and this was the place that was truly heaven sent. We (9 total) stayed in the Dillon cottage that had the most spectacular views of the coast. Whether it was hiking in Van Damme or driving into Mendicino, our stay at the cottages was by far the best mini vacation I have ever been on. Cudos to Kelly and the staff for their helpfullness and hospitality. We will be back!!

We spent three relaxing days at Cottages at Little River Cove.

The manager lives on the property and was very helpful during checkin and advising us about options around town.

The cottages are arranged around a courtyard; there is a ocean view from the porch. We stayed in a cottage named Humboldt. The cottage has binoculars for viewing and taking on walks.

Our kids enjoyed playing in the courtyard garden as well as at the back of property. They were thrilled to see wild turkeys, deer in the back of the property. There is enough room to ride bikes around the property.

The living room space is great for board games, Wii etc. The living room has a large flat screen tv, and a dvd player. We went with two other families so the kids gathered in one or the other units for play during the evenings.

A beach and boat dock are < 1 mile away; so kayaking in a placid river was fun. (They have very stable outrigger kayaks :-). The kayak rental place also rents bikes. There are many nearby parks for hikes.

It is a short drive to main street in Mendocino, or Fort Bragg.

The cottage has a well appointed kitchen that comes in handy for when you don't want to eat out. We took bagels, pasta etc. to cook breakfast and the occasional dinner. There is a quaint full service markets in Mendocino that is worth a visit; think Wholefoods + Hardware store.

There is a room service menu which we did not use.

There is free WiFi service in case you need to check email; Skype on your laptop is covenient if your cell phone provider doesn't have good coverage in the area.

All in all, a very pleasant stay at a elegantly furnished cottage.

We went to Mendo for my husband's birthday. This is the third year we have gone and the first year we stayed in the cottages. We loved it, especially because it is pet friendly. We had 6 dogs in our group and they were very accommodating - they provided dog beds, dog towels, food bowls, and poop bags! They are very accommodating to the people also. They made inquiry calls for us, gave us trail books and were just very friendly.

The Cottages have been recently remodeled and they did a wonderful job. The kitchen is stocked, the fire places are warming and they are very clean. We also used the BBQ and picnic table that look out onto the ocean every day we were there. The Cottages are right next door to the The Little River Inn, which has a great restaurant. Some of our group stayed there also. The Cottages and the Inn have a great working relationship.

We will definitely be going back. It is really nice to have your own little cottage, while still being right next door to your friends and/or family. And, the doggies get to go too!

  • Liked — Having your own cottage, but being close to your friends and having the outdoor common space.
  • Disliked — That they are not allowed to have a fire pit.

My Husband & I have stayed at many properties in this area since we grew up here, have family here & shoot many Weddings each yr. After walking in to our Cottage (Ignacio House) - I never want to leave! I sure wish we'd found this place sooner! It's clean, modern, picturesque & cozy! Even at the back of the property, we have a stunning view. All the doggies here are friendly & the grounds are tidy. I wish it was closer to town (FB or Mendo), but they can't help that! Cottage is full of amenities (blow dryer, robes, iron, umbrella, kitchen needs) - all you'd need is some more doggie towels & sheets + food! Definitely our fav place on the Coast now!

We stayed at the Cottages at Little River Cove (formerly the Fools Rush Inn, and now completely remodeled) the weekend after Thanksgiving. It was absolutely one of the best experiences we have had in a long time! Tony and Julie, the onsite managers, greeted us warmly when we arrived, and we were shown to our cabin, Gualala. It was a perfect set up for us and our 7 year old son. The living room was spacious and had lovely ocean views, a flat screen TV and cozy fireplace. The kitchen was fully and thoughtfully stocked with utensils, pots, plates, etc. In fact, that's what made staying at the Cottages so special. It was obvious that the innkeepers/owners were going out of their way to anticipate what a guest might need and already have it waiting. We brought food with us (but the inn will do the grocery shopping for you upon request) and cooked dinner in our kitchen when we arrived. The comfortable sofa opened out into an even more comfortable bed for our son, and my husband and I had a cozy queen bed in the next room. We also dined next door at the Little River Inn, which will provide its excellent food via room service to the Cottages if you don't want to go out. We borrowed a DVD from the hotel's extensive library, as well as a Scrabble game to play in front of the fireplace. The hotel has a large grass area perfect for romping with pets or throwing the football around. It was so peaceful to wake up and see the ocean from the living room and hear the gentle ring of the buoy in the cove. I'd highly recommend the Cottages, and we will definitely return!

Our cottage was spacious, clean, and very well equipped. We have four boys, so it was nice to have the extra room (the DVD and LCD HDTV, was a great bonus) and the fully functional kitchen (refrigerator, microwave, oven, utensils, dishes/bowls...). The cottages are located only minutes from the Big River Beach and downtown Mendocino, which made it convenient to get to meals and recreation.

We went for an hour and half kayak ride up the river (rented at the rental store right next to the river - the owner and instructor were both very friendly and helpful) with our two older boys and they loved it. Dad is a bit sore from paddling, but you could not ask for a more beautiful setting. We took advantage of an unusually warm December and had sunshine all weekend. We would highly recommend these cottages for a family.
