Everything about this place is FABULOUS....AND they have goats! The owners are delightful and entertain every evening in the reception area with wine and snacks. All the cabins are uniquely decorated in 50's kitch (not in the uncultivated taste way, in the FABULOUS way). The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean, the decks are wonderful, and one can see...

We loved this place. Our family stayed in Curious and Curiouser on a cold February night. The rooms are funky and dated (on purpose). If you are looking for your typical sterile hotel - this isn’t the place for you. If you are looking for an authentic California experience that is clean and welcoming - this is it! We enjoyed...

Family feeling and pet friendly. Great amenities like hot tub, happy hour and light breakfast. The personable staff was very responsive to our needs and offered great ideas for outings and restaurants. We will be returning regularly.

This was almost like camping in the most fun way with the comforts of a feather bed and modern bathrooms. We loved the room "Curious". It had a telescope for star gazing and adirondack chairs on the patio. The owners are awesome and you really feel like they are opening up their home. Everyone in the 12 cottages get to...

We stayed here one night and really wished it could have been for longer. A fascinating place - each piece of furniture and object tells a story. Very clean and well-equipped. We are a family of 2 adults, and 3 kids and stayed in cabins Curious and Curiouser which are adjoining rooms. This worked really well for us. Lots for...

This is a place to try if you prefer weathered wood over over pastels, curious goats over lounging cats, and an open field with wildflowers over manicured gardens. Add some vintage hipster design and a friendly north coast vibe and you have The Andiron. We lucked into this place on about the third pass of looking for unique accommodations on...

We actually stayed here in May of 2014 for one night and absolutely loved it! It was the perfect place to stay on our road trip along Rte 1! The rooms themselves were older, but that was part of the appeal. If you are looking for a 5-star resort or brand new, modern bathrooms, I wouldn't recommend this place, but...

I wish we had a week instead of a night. Everything about this place is fantastic. I always worry when they say "retro" it might be a clever way of saying shabby. It is spotless, every nook and cranny shining and clean. In every corner you look there are treasures to discover, antiques that are wonderful, fun and interesting. The...

This was our third visit to the Andiron, all three stays were in the connected rooms by the cabin nearest Rt 1, when you sit on the porch there are no cabins before you. This most recent visit was the best yet, the king bed was very comfy, sufficient pillows were provided, and the mid-century sci-fi/NASA decor delivered that hipster...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Andiron is 11 one- and two-room cabins perfectly situated on five acres of meadow and woods on Highway 1 in Little River, California. Minutes away from everything - beaches, wineries, diving, hikes, Mendocino, breweries, good food - but quiet, relaxing, and fun, our housekeeping cabins and rooms are each entirely unique and reflect our love of everything vintage, salvage, rehabbed, and recycled. ... more   less
