A talented craftsman has converted and updated what was once a tiny cabin into a one-of-a-kind home in a private redwood forest. This home has redwood inside and out to create the feeling of being cradled by nature. The home offers an easy-going ambiance, with no less than 18 skylights, flooding the interior living spaces with the light, color, and serenity from the surrounding forest. There are artisan touches from the gnarled door pulls to the exposed beams in the original living room side-by-side with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable and restful stay. Bedroom #1 has a King size bed, two large skylights, and a private half bathroom. It is upstairs where you can get away from the TVs and other guests in your group for a little solitude . Bedroom #2 has one Queen bed, a skylight, and a private full bathroom (tub/no shower). It is on the main floor for those who don't do well with stairs or like to be near the action. Bedroom #3 has a Queen bed and a Queen Size futon/bed. This room is down a half flight of stairs and has a TV with DVD/VCR...the kids love this room but adults enjoy the feeling of privacy too. Outside is a wide wrap around deck for enjoying the fresh air of the forest with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or a chilled glass of wine in the evening. Relax at the end of your day in the salt water hot tub under the redwoods.

About Lucy Edwards
We live in the San Francisco Bay area and our Mendocino home is just 3 hours away...close enough for a quick getaway and yet feels like a complete escape from our daily lives.
Lucy Edwards purchased this House in 2000
Why Lucy Edwards chose Little River
Having a home one mile inland allows us to enjoy many more sunny days above the fog line and we can go to the beach on the days the sun breaks through the fog. We get the best of both worlds here in the redwoods.
What makes this House unique
Artisan wood work details inside the home. Reclaimed 'Old Growth' redwood planks above the fireplace. Wide wrap-around redwood deck. Skylights in nearly every room allow full enjoyment of the towering redwoods surrounding the home.

Great house, great location
We really enjoyed our stay at the Little River Redwoods house. It was perfectly located just south of Mendocino. It felt like we were deep in the woods, when we were, in fact, less than 5 minutes from the beach. My kids loved exploring the many state parks and beaches close by, and my husband enjoyed peaceful morning walks in the pygmy forest located just off of the road the house is on. The house itself was large, clean and peaceful. The downstairs bedroom was perfect for my kids since it had a large bed, as well as a large pull-out futon. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and cookware, which allowed us to cook almost all of our meals, rather than eat out. We will definitely be back!
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a helpful review. We appreciated you also as excellent guests who took good care of our home. We look forward to your next visit
Little River is absolutely beautiful--wonderful vacation home and wonderful owners. Highly recommen
The house at Little River was private and tranquil, but was also near to incredible beaches, Van Damme State Park, and the friendly town of Mendocino. The hot tub was a welcome reprieve after a day of hiking, and our kids loved every minute--especially playing games after dinner in front of a cozy fire. We can't wait to visit again!
Beautiful Home in the Redwoods
This home was in an incredible location nestled back into the Redwoods but, 5 minutes from the beach, 10 minutes from Mendicino, and 15 or so from Ft. Bragg. The view from the spa into the trees was so peaceful and walking on around the property was so beautiful. This is a great house for kids and adults. Plenty of space indoors and out. The home was very clean and well equipped with all the comforts of home. Lucy our host was extremely helpful and very gracious. We had a wonderful time and would love to go back and recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful and fun vacation! Five stars!!
Awesome review! Your family were perfect guests too! Thanks for your help recovering the previous guests lost Fitbit. We welcome you back anytime.
Neat, clean and spacious
We loved staying at this home and would love to come back. The hot tub was clean, and had enough jets to massage every part of your body after a long day of hiking. There were huge redwood all around the house and my children loved picking all the salal berries and huckleberries they could find in the back yard.
The bedrooms had plenty of space and the dinning table fit all 8 of us with out trouble (a difficult find for a large family, like ours). Beautiful fireplace, with plenty of chopped available.
The only reason I gave the house 4 instead of 5 stars, is that is was very close to a busy road, but it was a minor distraction from the otherwise quite and majestic beauty of the forest surround in the rest of the house. We especially loved having our morning coffee on the back porch, enjoying the quite while the kids were still sleeping.
Everyone was sad to leave, but thank you for the providing this wonderful home. Only wish it were available this Thanksgiving!
Beautiful review! Thank you for taking the time to write this and for taking excellent care of our place. We look forward to your return.
