Mendocino Pet-Friendly Lodging

At the Cottages, we know that pets need vacations, too! We are the premier pet-friendly lodging location in Mendocino, with private cottages and beautiful gardens and lawns for taking walks. In addition to our 2+ acres of grounds, the dog-friendly Van Damme Beach is only a 1/4 mile from the Cottages at Little River Cove, and there are many more pet-friendly beaches and miles of walking trails in the area.

In our designated pet-friendly cottages we allow up to two pets to accompany you. We welcome our furry, four-footed guests with their own “Pet Package” including a bed, food and water bowls, a beach towel, waste bags, and a welcome treat! We look forward to meeting your furry friends and making them feel welcome at our dog-friendly lodging!

Our pet fee is $25 per pet for each night of their stay. Fee capped at $100 To ensure that all guests have an enjoyable stay, we’ll ask Pet Parents to sign the following Pet Guidelines when you check-in.
