Historical Traveler Reviews Stevenswood Resort And Spa Little River

Everybody Go to Stevenswood


My husband and I just returned from a trip to Mendocino and The Napa Valley and can't say enough wonderful things about Stevenswood and its new owners. Michael and Seth have put thei hearts into the Inn and it shows. Beautiful grounds, a huge mini-suite (it was really more maxi) with a real wood burning fireplace and a distant water view. The breakfast is excellent with several choices and reservations are not necessary. Portions are generous and prepared to order. The restaurant is top notch and priced accordingly. The free half bottle of wine from an excellent local winery in your room upon arrival is a nice touch. Top notch service in every way. Highest recommendation.

Excellent stay


Spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. Not on the coast but a few rooms with partial ocean views. Outstanding breakfasts such as sheared eggs with fresh crab, waffles, and other treats. Small touches such as setting up the fireplace with wood every day, small bottle of wine on arrival were nice. Minor problem with the phone and clock in the room, but did not detract from the stay. Wireless internet a plus, if needed. Highly recommended.

Amazing Spa Resort! Under New Owners...


My wife and I enjoyed our recent weekend at Stevenswood Lodge.

The new owners, Michael & Seth have a winning combination of European style, rugged sophistication and personal attentiveness.

The Lodge is nestled between Redwood Trees, Ocean Meadow and scuplted floral and fauna gardens.

Our trip was flawless. The private hot tub was soothing along the forest ridge, and the breakfast was on par with any 5 star hotel. One of the owners, Michael personally served us our gourmet breakfast. They had 5 or 6 delicious sounding entree choices. My wife had their signature Sheared Eggs, made with local Dunguness Crab, Asparagus and Swiss Cheese. I had melt in your mouth Macadamia Nut Belgian Waffles.

They have complimentary wireless internet throughout the property and the suites are stocked with long range cordless phones that work anywhere on the resort. They also have speaker phones, color plasma TVs with HBO and wood burning fireplaces.

This place is amazing!

Loved the food


Little River just two miles south of Mendocino you'll find Stevenswood Lodge resort Spa and Restaurant, an AAA Four Diamond Inn, which has consistently received a Five Star rating for its restaurant. All surrounds you in deep forests. Where the fireplaces are glowing and the ocean sunsets take your breath away. Great rooms and the best food on the north coast. --------------------James Fine

Not really a bed and breakfast....


The rooms are very nice, peaceful, quiet, clean and comfortable. Service was good here. My complaint is the breakfast. We had to make reservations, then although the menu was set so all we did was order drinks, it took a full 20 minutes to get our food with only 1 other couple in the dining room. We were served a 1/2 slice of stuffed french toast with decorative fruit. No meat was offered or anything else. What a waste of time to eat breakfast here! Go to EGGGHEADS in Ft. Bragg to see what a breakfast should be! i have never seen such a poor meal served at an inn and we have stayed at many B&B's

Stevenswood is terrific


We found the Stevenswood Lodge to be terrific. The rooms are spacious including a fire place, the staff is very friendly and the breakfasts are wonderful.

Don't overlook Stevenswood!


Brought my parents here for a Mendocino wedding. Such reasonable prices, ($10 cancellation policy was stated AT THE TIME OF RESERVATION) and yet luxury room. Very courteous and friendly staff. Conference room on first floor. Least expensive room was huge with big closets and big desk/counter space, sitting area, wood-burning fireplace, windows on three sides, down comforter, lots of pillows. Original artwork on the walls. Gourmet breakfast included at their award-winning restaurant on premise (special treat for guests who have dinner there). Set back in redwood forest, so no white-water ocean views, just a glimpse of ocean through trees and a direct view of Van Damme forest! If you're tired of cookie-cutter corporate hotels, stay here! If you like bed-and-breakfast, but don't like cramped space, ruffles, chintz and country style, want to be away from crowds, please, please stay here!

(5 min. drive to Mendocino!)

Perfect honeymoon


My husband and I thought this place was heaven on earth. The air smells woodsy and wonderful, forest creatures (deer, chipmunks) approach the breakfast area while you are eating - the staff puts out bowls of stuff for them, so you can watch them through the huge windows. Forest on one side, ocean on the other. Down comforters and fireplaces in July was our Arizona idea of paradise. Food was spectacular. Every imaginable comfort. Gorgeous views. Utterly peaceful.

Great place to relax


My husband and I have spent our last two wedding anniversaries at Stevenswood Lodge and are returning again this year. The inn is lovely and the staff is welcoming and helpful, this in addition to the sheer beauty of the surroundings. From the Stevens Suite one can look out the window to the south and soak in the view of the ocean and then turn to the window to the east and enjoy the forest. It is a welcoming and relaxing environment with a spectacular chef and restaurant. I can think of no better way to spend a romantic weekend than relaxing on the sofa in front of the fireplace, taking a walk in the gardens and along the bluffs, dining in the restaurant, and finishing the evening with some champaigne while soaking in the spa.



I made reservations for my husband and I, anticipating a fairly luxurious weekend at this resort. Due to a change in his travel plans, we had to cancel the reservation the next day. Even though we had cancelled within less than 24 hours of making this reservation, and more than one onth in advance of the planned stay, we were charged a $10 "processing fee". After requesting communication from the hotel about this, a female representative of the hotel called me and took the position that I was at fault for not understanding their policy. When I suggested that the policy was detrimental to business, she turned officious and rude and terminated the conversation abruptly. I will NEVER give such an establishment my business!

We drive from Queenies to the Point Arena Lighthouse. A sign says it's the closest place to Hawaii in the 48 contiguous states.

After that, to Anderson Valley to taste wine at Lula's.

Here the sommelier, Don, tells us that the 2012 Pinot Noir won two gold prizes at the State Fair.

The snow sent us down to San Francisco for the weekend. We camped in the suburbs and took the train to town, everyone was very helpful.

We loved walking across the Golden Gate Bridge and taking the cable cars (long queues for these but soo worth it.)

... sure!

Upon returning to the Wharf, we stopped a few shops and then headed back to the hotel, grabbed the car ($104 later for parking...note to self, looking for parking rates when staying at a hotel right downtown), and then headed out on our way. We had planned to stop at HRD coffee shop (another restaurant featured on the food network) for lunch, as we had tried to go there yesterday but it was closed Sunday, however when we got there today ...

... it was important to leave it for future generations to enjoy. When I had first learned of this beach, I was intrigued by the idea that something beautiful could be created by the waste left behind by mankind. But there were humans screwing it up again! There were so many people collecting glass that it was unjustifiable that it was all being taken to create a beautiful art project (not that I would be OK with that either). “Those people are just going to ...
