River Dogs Rule At Little River Inn

Would you even dream of going on a California vacation without your dog? She deserves a vacation, too, and there’s no better place to chill out (and wear yourself out with hikes and beach runs) than on the California coast.

Little River Inn, in the coastal Mendocino County town of the same name, offers a River Dog package, good June through October, that includes two nights in a pet-friendly, ocean-view room with fireplace; a three-hour outrigger canoe excursion on the Big River for you and your pet; a $100 dinner voucher good for room service or service in the dog-friendly parlor; and a goodie bag packed with treats and tip sheets on where to hike, bit and boat with your four-legged friend. more »

And there are many choices in between. more »

Don’t give up if you can’t get in: cancellations happen, and if you’re flexible and determined, you’ll find an available date. more »
