“Beautiful Cottages - I Will Be Back!”
Reviewed 21 January 2011

I was dreaming of a relaxing get away by myself with my dogs and wanted a modern cottage, yet cozy and dog friendly. I found the perfect place! I was greeted with large dog beds for each dog, treats, towels and food and water bowls were in place. I stayed in the Dillon Cottage and really enjoyed the modern amenities - granite counter tops in a nice spacious stocked kitchen, two large windows with an ocean view, excellent gas fireplace, TV with DVD player and a nice rain shower. The back deck off the bedroom was great for sunning in the afternoon. Even though HWY 1 is below the cottages, the minor traffic does not thwart the sound of the waves. The staff was very accommodating for planning a massage and room service could be ordered from the adjacent Little River Inn (which has excellent food). There is also a store below the cottages and the Little River Inn that has great deli food with gourmet options. I will definitely return and fell in love with this place.

The cottage was perfectly appointed with almost anything you could need. The bed was great, the view and ambiance perfect and I can't rave enough about the hospitality of the inn keeper. Next time we're staying longer!

Spent this last weekend at the Cottages. There was a group of us and 7 of the 9 cottages were rented by our group. Nice size common area for the kids to play in. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. Kitchen had all the appliances and utencils you could possibly need, except a dishwasher. This place is more than just "pet friendly". A dog bed, bowls, treats and potty pickup bags were provided. Staff was friendly and very accomodating. Fresh flowers picked from the grounds were in every cottage. We all had dinner at the Ledford House a few miles away. Very good but a little pricey and they don't really cater to kids but handled all 9 of ours quite well. We would definately go back.

I try to get back here with my family (including two young kids) each year.

It is perfect for a family get away from the Bay Area. The drive up to Mendocino is beautiful. Many nice places to stop along the way. And the cottages are ideal. Most cottages have one bedroom with a pull-out couch for the kiddo(s) in the living room. Very well stocked kitchen. Lush landscaping. Ocean views and fireplaces from each and every cottage. Great outdoor patio and yard with a wonderful grill and gas fireplace for roasting marshmellows overlooking the sea.

Little River is a mile or so south of Mendocino on highway 1. There is an amazing beach at Big River very nearby. Great for kids. It is where the river meets the ocean and in a bit from the ocean the water is calm and great for the little ones to experience the sand and dips toes in the (extremely chilly) water. If you go, I recommend hitting the beach at Big River. I also recommend walking around Mendocino. Great little town with incredible views. And if you like the outdoors, check out Van Damme state park, just a few doors down from the Cottages. At the back of the campground is a little trail called the fern grove. It is a nice wide path, and pretty flat. It runs alongside a creek / small river. My kids had endless fun throwing sticks and stones into the water and searching for all kinds of little creatures.

The Cottages are very reasonably priced, and with the kitchen you can easily keep costs down by preparing your meals. If you have pets, bring them along. Several of the cottages are pet-friendly. We don't have pets, but met several very friendly dogs on the property.

p.s. Don't forget your fleece...Mendocino is generally not tropical.

We absolutely loved our cottage. We stayed in the Gualala house with our little dog for 3 nights.
We had a wonderful view of the ocean and lovely surrounding landscape. The cottages are very well maintained and the staff was just so warm and friendly even suggesting places to visit in the area. - Don't miss the Botanical Gardens !!!!!
You can also enjoy wonderful room service from the Little River Inn just next door, the food is excellent.

Usually when you arrive at a destination after booking from the pictures on the internet you are disappointed in some way. Well, I do have to say I was amazed when my husband I arrived at Little River Cove Cottages. The grounds where beautifully landscaped, the cottages with full kitchens where decorated and very clean just as they were shown on the internet. The views from the cottages where great. Very close driving distance to all the Beaches and State Parks. The staff from the manager to the housekeepers where great. Our trip was a very memorable one at that. I will return, hopefully soon!
