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

From fine dining to a hearty meal at the bar, there’s something here for everyone. Our restaurant offers breakfast and dinner daily, with brunch on Sundays (book early, it does fill up). Ole’s Whale Watch bar serves up favorites old and new, alongside a world-class cocktail program. And of course, room service is always an option – it’s hard to beat the views.


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 deep in the heart of the redwoods, a luxurious wedding 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.
