80 Years of Family Hospitality

Little River Inn

Welcome to the Edge of the World


Rooms with a View

Welcome to your home away from home. The best things never change. Sweeping ocean views. Luxurious soaking tubs. Intimate gas and wood-burning fireplaces. Beds and linens selected for comfort and restfulness. With more than sixty rooms to choose from, you’re sure to find your own ‘old favorite’ – a place to return to year after year.

Food & Drink

There’s something here for everyone. Our restaurant offers dinner daily, with the main dining room and Wisteria room available. Ole’s Whale Watch bar is open for full service. Our tented patio is available for guests with dogs, weather permitting. And of course, takeout to enjoy in your room is always an option – it’s hard to beat the views.


Rain Chasers

Our exciting new loyalty program, for those who love our season of beauty. All it takes is a two night stay to start you off.  The more you stay over a two year period between the months of November and April, the more you will earn in savings and gifts. 

What People are Saying

Local Calendar

Food and wine festivals, live music, special event trains – there’s so much happening that we’re a part of, and we love to share it with you!

Golf with Us

Tucked among the redwoods, with majestic views of the Pacific Ocean, this is 5,458 yards of pure escape. Our Audubon-certified course has been delighting guests since 1957, and is a great way to start the day. 


Share Our Magic

Whether it’s an intimate elopement perched on the sweeping bluffs of Mallory House or an unbelievable corporate event in our well-appointed Abalone Hall, we are here to make your special event truly special. With decades of experience we’ll bring your vision to life.

An 80-Year Legacy

For more than 80 years our family has been welcoming guests to experience the beauty of the Mendocino Coast. The original house was built in 1853 by Silas Coombs, and has remained in our family ever since. Ole turned it into an inn in 1939, and we’re still happily on the job, doing what it takes to make you feel more than welcome.


During the Covid-19 crisis, for the safety of our staff, community, and guests we are requiring masks and social distancing at check-in and in common spaces. If you feel sick or are exhibiting any symptoms, please contact us to reschedule your stay.
