We stayed at The Andiron for two nights as quite a big group, which was fabulous. But it would have been just as awesome as a couples-destination (many honeymooners here, people!). The cabins are unique, well equipped and fantastic in design as well as function. The reception area needs to be experienced as the unique little slice of heaven it... More

Still thinking of our wonderful time at the Andiron.. Every contact we had from the booking process to checkout was handled with care and attention.

In the interest of full disclosure, Mrs. Andiron is my cousin. Nevertheless, our overnight stay was everything we hoped for and more. We stayed in the two-room suite (Milly and Bill) dedicated to my aunt and uncle, Mrs. Andiron's parents, and decorated with memorabilia from their World War II-era courtship and marriage. For me, that sealed the deal right there,... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Andiron Inn. We arrived late but our room information was waiting for us in the box by the lobby. The room was small but cozy with a patio outside the cabin.

Hi there Pamela! Sounds to us like you did everything right at The Andiron!

Cabins are quiet and spacious enough with amenities that are useful for vacation travel, including games, movie rentals, books, and in our particular cabin, a telescope and binoculars. Management staff was kind and helpful, the room was clean but is not maintained everyday unless requested. Our only complaint was the specific location of our cabin (unit # 11), which is... More

Thanks for your nice review! I'm sorry the highway noise bugged you - what were planners thinking putting the highway right next to the ocean where all the inns are? It does get pretty quiet at night, perfect for using that telescope to see the stars. Hope you enjoyed that. Oh! And we just hit up an estate sale and... More

A simply wonderful place to spend a few days. My wife and I stayed in the 'Read' cabin, which we loved.

The cabin is located in Little River on HWY 1 and it is about 4 miles from Mendocino and a very easy drive. I enjoyed staying here rather than Mendocino.
