The Andiron is a very relaxing and beautiful set of cabins with a friendly staff. Our Keeshond mix dog especially enjoyed the grounds. Our only reservation was that the bed in the Read cabin was uncomfortable (too hard a mattress) for my wife.

This is a lovely quirky place to stay. The cabins are great, the hot tub in the trees was amazing, there's plenty to keep you amused, the breakfast toast bar at the weekend is well tasty and the staff were very helpful. The wifi was free which was great especially seeing as there's no phone signal but it wasn't the... More

My partner and I stayed in the "Play" Room, which came equipped with word search wallpaper and vintage board games. Mod/vintage decor. We enjoyed little bites at the Happy Hour hosted by the lovely... More

Very eclectic cabins w/ personality and charm! Definitely recommend this place and VERY dog friendly!

The Andiron is 11 one- and two-room cabins perfectly situated on five acres of meadow and woods on Highway 1 in Little River, California.
