Wasn't at all what we had expected.

Posted Sep 29, 2014
Pros: Cute decoraions in the room.
Cons: Have staff available. Leave a light on by the cottage # so you can more easily locate the correct unit.
Arrived late, 9 PM no staff on duty hard to find cottage in the dark. Went to check out 8:30 AM no staff.

Unique place decorated with charming artifacts from the 1950s (each cabin has its own theme). There were deer walking in front of my cabin when I drove up.

Well done themed cabins

Posted Sep 14, 2014
Pros: Everything
Cons: Room did not have hair dryer, will provide this and just about anything else on request.
Location: Hiking,horseback riding,kayaking,Mendocino,beach combing. check out "Secret Beach" nearby(directions in the guest room directory,won't find without it
Loved this quirky little place. Cabins have themes, ours was called "Here" and was decorated with local Pacific coast items. Vaulted ceilings, wood burning fireplaces, outdoor hot tub and fire pit. Both indoor and outdoor fireplaces all set up with positioned logs and fire starter pack...just light a match once and you are done! Marshmallows and long forks set out at the pit each night! We had a kitchen so fresh eggs from their chickens were provided. This place had everything you need and more! King bed was so comfortable! I highly recommend the little diamond as a change of pace from the typical hotel motel when traveling the coastal route in N. Ca.

Three Nights at The Aniron

Posted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: Everything!!
Location: Not too far from anything and you get great scenery on the way there.
Arrived early to find the owners working hard to make the place clean and beautiful. Went to lunch in Fort Bragg then returned to get our room. The rooms are very clean with music playing from the TV. The fireplace makes the room very toasty on a cold night. The beds were very comfortable and because of the location of The Andiron, the noise level is very low so we slept very peacefully. Even our dog, who hears every noise and has to bark at it, slept peacefully through the night. The grounds have a lot of room for playing games and for your pets to move about. We were able to eat our meals there so it saved us money from having to dine out. We really enjoyed our stay at The Aniron.Thanks, guys, for making our stay so great!!

Funky and fun

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: Clean, funky, friendly.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Just south of the quaint town of Mendocino. There are beaches, great dining, fun little shops and north are the redwoods. Can't beat the location.
Cute cabin... interesting, funky, themed. Very clean. Nice deck to sit on and includes deer feeding during the evening hours. I didn't meet the goats or use the hot tub this time but I will the next time I stay here. Friendly staff and Kate left us the most delicious cookies! I loved the place and plan to return again soon,

1950's Summer Camp!

Posted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: We saw deer, rabbits and baby quail!
When I saw on their website that a "viewmaster" was listed among the amenities, I knew before we even arrived it would be perfect! I never went to summer camp when I was a kid but this is exactly how I picture it. It's so peaceful, quaint and quirky. The hosts haven't overlooked a single detail (home-made treats in your room, adorable goats to feed, organic bath products, s'mores at the firepit...) I loved it all!

Sweet, welcoming place with such charm

Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: The personal touches. The hospitality. Everything!
Cons: Cant currently think of anything.
Location: Close to Mendocino, a secret beach, Fort Bragg, Van Damme State Park...etc
My boyfriend and I stayed here for our weekend getaway and we were blown away by how well this place is maintained, how much care is put into the place and the overall charm of it all. We checked in after the office closed, but found a personal note in the mailbox with everything we needed. We were welcomed in our cottage with lovely music and some whoopie pies! So sweet! Our room was themed with international travel and it was styled mid-century like. The furniture was so cool as well as the decor. The room even came with fun vintage games, one of which we played for hours into the night! So fun! The hot tub in the woods is simply perfect, so pretty in the woods, it even has lights wrapped around the tree. If you are looking for a romantic getaway with personal flare, I would recommend this place a hundred times over! We already have to our families!

Charming Cottages with Vintage Feel

Posted Jul 14, 2014
My best friend and I had an amazing stay here! The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The cottages were adorable: rustic but nice with amazing touches from the mini whoopie pies to the lovely bath products, the framed vintage photos to the fluffy towels! We had an amazing time and only wish we could have stayed longer.

Location: We asked about dinner at the hotel and they suggested The Wild Fish. It was fabulous! Don't miss Mendocino....a lovely little town!
This is a very quirky, fun place where there has been a lot of thought into making the cabins interesting and comfortable. We loved our cabin called "write!". We were welcomed in our room with treats, a cozy fire (in the electric fireplace), and lovely music. The staff is helpful and friendly. They have a nice supply of movies and games, a hot tub and a pair of charming goats!

Great cabins with great location.

Posted May 4, 2014
Location: Close to downtown Mendocino
Charming cabins decorated in 40's-50's style. Done with humor. Great host and hostess. Definitely a time warp to an earlier time. Wonderful experience
