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.

Perfect Thanksgiving retreat for 5 adults! The bedrooms are on split levels and provided privacy. The living/dining room was spacious and the owner had set up the fireplace with kindling and logs ready for us to enjoy by simply lighting...much appreciated after a long day of travel! Great location for exploring the area and a couple of days with pouring rain gave us a perfect excuse to stay inside and enjoy this beautiful home. The owner is very accessible and reached out to us personally by email before our arrival to ensure we had any information we might need. We recommend you contact the owner to be sure you know what supplies you may need to bring that aren’t provided.
Thank you for this detailed, informative and positive review. I'm so glad you were able to enjoy your stay even with the rain (much needed and so thankful it put out the horrific fire in butte county and put an end to the toxic smoke in the bay area.)
We loved staying in Little River, such a great location with redwoods and close to national parks, beaches and Mendocino town. The house was very comfortable and roomy for our family. We very much enjoyed our stay here, thank you so much to the hosts!
Thank you for your wonderful review. We are happy you had a nice time in the fresh air!
Private, spacious, beautiful setting, and great location
This was a great home for our trip to the Mendocino area! The bedrooms, kitchen, living room, etc., all have great space to relax and enjoy the beautiful views out every window of the home. The ceilings and woodwork on the windows are a work of art. We really enjoyed the bbq, spa, and large kitchen. The house was clean and welcoming. We especially loved the fireplace to build a warm fire at the end of day after exploring all the beautiful beaches in the area. Thank you for sharing you home Lucy!
WHAT A SUPERB EXPERIENCE
We so much enjoyed this vacation property,,,, it was first class: Beautiful Home, Beautiful Property and Scenery, Lovely stocked kitchen with pretty dinnerware,,, Very Comfortable Beds in large Bedrooms, Beautiful Bathrooms,included a wonderful Jacuzzi Tub, Fabulous Fireplace with plenty of wood for family to gather, in the Spacious Living Room, Very long and private outdoor porch for us to mingle and play. The Outdoor Hot Tub was the Highlight,,, for our evening relaxation and fun. We will be coming back to such a warm and cozy Getaway
We will stay here again!
This is our 4th year in a row staying at this house. It's comfortable and cozy, while still having enough room for everyone, including two busy 4 year olds. This was our first year booking the house through VRBO, and I found the transaction smooth and had great communication from Lucy (the owner). I guarantee that we will continue our annual trips to Mendocino, and we will always stay at this house!
Charming home in a great location!
We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The house has a woodsy ambiance and is well-equipped and comfortable. Loved the hot tub, and we enjoyed grilling out after our days of exploration of the nearby coastal areas. We also drove up to the Avenue of the Giants, which is a couple of hours north but well worth the trip.
