Natural beauty and colorful history converge at Mendocino’s Little River Inn, a classic Victorian establishment with 65 ocean-view rooms, a nine-hole golf course and day spa on 225 wooded acres overlooking the coast.
This summer the inn is rolling out the red carpet for dog-lovers and their four-legged friends with an amenity-rich River Dog Package. It includes two nights in a pet-friendly, ocean view room with fireplace; a three-hour excursion on the Big River estuary in an ultra-stable, dog-friendly outrigger canoe; a $100 dinner voucher for use in the dog-friendly parlor, the pro shop or for room service; a goodie bag with pet treats; an info sheet on where to hike, bike and boat with dogs; and a one-hour massage for each adult human.
Packages start at $685 (plus tax and gratuity) for two people and up to two pets. Advance reservations at least two days in advance are required; call 707.937.5942 or go to littleriverinn.com.
