A mere five minutes from Little River, much-photographed Mendocino Village, with its wealth of lacy Victorians and colorful saltbox cottages, is loaded with places to enjoy with your four-legged friend. Our top pick is Stanford Inn by the Sea, just south of the village across Big River. Once you’ve explored the compact downtown, get your tails over to Mendocino Headlands State Park, which surrounds the town on three sides. more »

Mush(room) On Over to Pet-Passionate Stanford Inn
It’s hard to imagine a warmer welcome than you and your pet will get at Stanford Inn by the Sea, a boutique hotel with a decades-long commitment to four-legged guests. You’ll be welcomed with all manner of comforts and amenities, including a spa, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna, fireplace, private deck and free Wi-fi. Nor will your dog be neglected: she’ll eat out of stainless-steel bowls, lounge on “dog sheets” protecting the furniture and be provided with a bed if you didn’t bring one from home. more »

There’s something magical about the Big River estuary near Mendocino—and something ingenious about the “canine cruiser” that transports two- and four-legged visitors down the calm and inky river to the sea. Catch A Canoe & Bicycles Too, which has been outfitting paddlers on an 8.3-mile section of the river since 1972, added the cruiser to its fleet of handmade redwood watercraft several years ago. more »

While most Mendocino County restaurants with outdoor dining venues allow dogs to curl up under the table with their owners, winter weather can throw that option a curve ball. In inclement weather when patios aren’t open, your pup can always wait in the car while you dine. Or—if you know in advance—you can take an unconventional route to an indoor venue. more »

While you can drive from one end of Mendocino County to the other in a morning or afternoon (it’s 102 winding miles from Leggett to Gualala on scenic Highway 1) this intoxicating stretch of coastline is best savored at a snail’s pace. Our advice: Hang your hat (and leash) for at least a night in one of the many dog-friendly lodgings situated within sight and sound of the sea.  more »

It’s just 17 miles along scenic Highway 1 from the coastal village of Albion to the more muscular city of Fort Bragg, but considering how much lies in between, you could take an entire, leisurely week to go the distance. more »

Noyo Harbor BeachA mere glimpse of Mendocino’s gorgeously sculpted coastline is all it takes to turn urban angst into rural revelation. The scenery is so intoxicating you can happily spend a week along the Highway 1 corridor without venturing beyond sight or sound of the sea. more »
Murphy at Stanford InnCharming Mendocino village and the nearby community of Little River are at the center of the culinary action in this part of Mendocino County. As in most of California, dog-friendly dining is confined to decks and patios. But there is one notable exception. At Ravens', the organic vegan restaurant at Stanford Inn by the Sea, DogTrekkers are served at tables in the lobby, just outside the dining room. It's a clever way of honoring state health laws while sheltering guests and their pooches from the weather.

Lap Up The Scenery
Dana and KaylaMendocino County’s sculpted coastline is so intoxicating you can yappily spend a week without venturing beyond sight or sound of the sea. Settle in at a pet-friendly property such as the Stanford Inn by the Sea or Little River Inn, both of which provide amenities including bowls, towels and sheets for keeping sandy paws off the furniture. Fan out from there to get a feel for what gives this storied slice of the North Coast its almost mythical reputation. more »
