For the most spectacular day of your life, choose the most spectacular location on the romantic Mendocino Coast. The excitement begins as you drive through one of California’s most beautiful coastal valleys known for fine wines and stunning views. Wave goodbye to Anderson Valley as you arrive on our rugged coastline forested with towering redwoods, where Little River Inn’s staff welcomes you with real family hospitality.

In the days leading up to your ceremony you and your guests have a wide variety of activities from which to choose, both inside and out. Settle yourself in front of a roaring fire with a good book, explore one of the many beaches nearby, where we can arrange for a picnic around a bonfire, or take our private path to Fern Canyon Trail, which provides some of the best hiking on the North Coast. Back at the Inn, let us organize your golf times for you and your guests on our private oceanview golf course, arrange for a spa day or throw you a rehearsal dinner or barbeque. Close by, the picturesque village of Mendocino offers boutiques, galleries and restaurants allowing for a full day of strolling and shopping.
