    Find Love & Temptation at The Little River Inn 

    There’s nothing quite so beautiful as California’s rugged north coast.  If you’re thinking about heading up that way, your timing is perfect. Guests can celebrate love and indulge in the freshest seasonal fare this January and February at the historic Little River Inn on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California. Throughout the entire month of January, guests who take advantage of the SLEEP WITH THE CRABS package can catch their own crabs out on the Pacific and then return to the warm and toasty comfort of the Inn. If guests visit between January 18 and 27, they can also catch Crab Feast Mendocino, an annual festival that pays homage to the local Dungeness crab, as well as local wine and beer. As long as the tasty crustaceans are available on the coast, Little River Inn’s Executive Chef Marc Dym will be cooking up dishes prepared with this native bounty at the Little River Inn Restaurant and Ole’s Whale Watch Bar.

    About Little River Inn

    This is one of my favorite places to eat seafood. It’s so elegant yet substantial.

Ideal for the entire family, and thankfully pet-friendly as well, the Inn has 66 guest rooms ranging from the economical to the luxurious. Several private meeting and special event spaces with stunning ocean and garden views make the Inn an excellent venue for small- to medium-sized weddings and corporate retreats. The restaurant, helmed by CIA-trained Executive Chef Marc Dym, is a destination unto itself and the delicious, often hearty California coastal cuisine has a following so dedicated that it is not uncommon for guests to fly in by private plane for Sunday Brunch! In addition, Ole’s Whale Watch Bar is a classic local hangout where guests gather for drinks and a casual bite. Little River Inn has a beautiful, nine-hole golf course that plays like 18 and is appropriate for many skill levels.
