We are 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, salvaged, rehabbed, and recycled.
You'll find fifties fabrics, old Viewmasters, your favorite childhood games and puzzles, badminton, croquet, funky lamps, and so much more. Add super-comfy beds, a sweet hot tub, and weekend happy hours, and you've got a mighty fine getaway. Plus, we think your pets are swell, so bring 'em along ($20 per pet/night)!
Soup Saturdays are ON! We're serving Andiron Noodle Soup (butternut squash, noodles, toasted sage, and parmesan) with pumpkin bread pudding for dessert this weekend. $30 gets you two big bowls of soup, bread and butter, beer or wine, and dessert - all delivered in style to your cabin.
Is The Andiron one of the top 30 romantic getaways in the WORLD? Travel+Leisure magazine thinks so. Wow! That's cool. And awesome. Check it out... Go Retro at a Private California Inn
Sunset Magazine likes us! Check out what they said:
A RETRO-CHIC HIDEOUT - The Andiron's 1950s cabins are something out of the ordinary along the sleepy rural stretch south of Mendocino. Peek inside and you'll see that the inn's new owners have redecorated each of the 11 redwood rooms with quirky rummage-sale finds. (Our favorite: No. 5, done up in "library chic" and called Read) Half the rooms have kitchenettes and wood-burning stoves; all have decks looking down the grassy hill to a fringe of cypress trees and the ocean beyond.
Everyone digs a gift certificate to The Andiron! We make our own gift certificates out of old cookbooks, knitting magazines, and garden guides. They're cool (see a picture here)! And when you give someone a gift certificate to The Andiron, you're cool too. That is how cool works! Best of all, we'll mail it right to your gift-ee OR to you OR we have an email version that you can print out if you like.
You can make your gift certificate for any denomination and/or any kooky combo (like, "one night's stay in the Nature cabin and put the sixties version of The Parent Trap in the cabin along with two bags of popcorn"). And if you're feeling really really super cool, then give the ultimate and most awesome gift: The Andiron Grand Tour - one night in each cabin (all at once or one at a time), including special gifts with each stay and one-of-a-kind, handmade grand tour t-shirts upon completion ($1,500 plus tax).
