We were a family or 4 adults and 1 baby and stayed in the William and Mildred suite. The suite was spacious, the location was awesome and the staff was extremely friendly. Definitely stop by if you are visiting Mendocino.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and cannot wait to go back! It must be said that we did not experience all that the inn has to offer -- its hot tub, happy hour and goats. Our time was limited, but I have to say that did not mean that the service or attention was limited. We... More

Funky is a great adjective for this place! It might not be everyone's dream of an escape but it introduced us to a new idea of an escape. There is nothing typical here. The people are unique, the character is unique, the approach his unique. If you want an experience, this is the place to stay. If you like posh,... More

I had done a bit of research, and The Andiron looked promising, but my friend and I were on an adventure; we made no reservations, just drove until we saw something we liked. We pulled in to a big plot of land just across Highway 1 from the ocean in Little River, cabins (2 units each) dotting the sloping landscape.... More

We had rented the William and Mildred cabin for our anniversary and loved it. It was perfect for the occasion. The tribute to Madeline's parents was touching. Finding the old records and record player made my day! Scott and Madeline are nice people and special thanks to Kate for the special touches waiting on us when we arrived. -Angie H

We have stayed at The Andiron three times in the past seven years and it just keeps getting better with each visit. The staff is helpful, the rooms are always clean and they have such fun touches all around the property. This time we stayed in #1- Nature, and I loved the vintage viewfinder with tons of reels from the... More

We stayed in one of the charming cottages decorated with memorabilia from the 20th century with the theme of "read". Our bed, which was lovely and comfortable, had a view of the ocean. A fireplace, kitchenette, nice bathroom,homemade treats upon arrival and dog friendly room made our two night visit perfect. We will be back.

The Andiron is a great place: every detail has a history, the furniture is for the most part salvaged. We spent one night in the Read room: everything is so well-thought: whoopie pies and a little note to welcome us, books everywhere, a fireplace with logs ready to use, comfortable couches to read with a cup of tea/coffee, a retro...

I looked at all the b&b's in the area and then found The Andiron. The cabins are older and everything is retro. The website explains what to expect. It is perfect, simple and quiet.

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
