TASTE News Service, January 15, 2019 – Guests can indulge in the freshest seasonal fare this January and February at the historic Little River Inn on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California.

telstar crab PicmonkeyThroughout the entire month of January, guests who take advantage of their Sleep with the Crabs package can catch their own crabs out on the Pacific and then return to the warm and toasty comfort of the Inn. If guests visit between January 18 and 27, they can also catch Crab Feast Mendocino, an annual festival that pays homage to the local Dungeness crab, as well as local wine and beer. As long as the tasty crustaceans are available on the coast, Little River Inn’s Executive Chef Marc Dym will be cooking up dishes prepared with this native bounty at the Little River Inn Restaurant and Ole’s Whale Watch Bar.

Available all January long, this two-night Sleep with the Crabs package is the best way to enjoy Crab Feast Mendocino (January 18 – 27, 2019) and have your own private crab season. Hotel guests launch early morning from Noyo Harbor for a four to five-hour expedition on the Pacific to catch your own crabs! You will set out pots, scan the horizon for whales, and ideally pull in up to 10 crabs. The crew will cook and clean your crabs, making it easy to get your harvest back home. Breakfast and Dinner for two is included as well as what the property describes as a “crab-friendly” bottle of Mendocino County wine

Editor’s note: For a personal view of a recent visit that was not during crab season, see Michael Eady’s article on the Little River Inn and his interview with Chef Marc Dym.

About Little River Inn

Little River Inn is a family-owned and operated boutique resort on the Mendocino coast of California with a chef-driven restaurant, nine-hole Audubon-certified golf course, professional tennis courts and day spa. Ideal for the entire family (and pet-friendly as well), the Inn has 66 guest rooms ranging from the economical to the luxurious. Several private meeting and special event spaces with stunning ocean and garden views make the Inn an excellent venue for small—to medium-sized—weddings and corporate retreats. The restaurant, helmed by CIA-trained Executive Chef Marc Dym, is a destination unto itself and the delicious, often hearty California coastal cuisine has a following so dedicated that it is not uncommon for guests to fly in by private plane for Sunday Brunch. In addition, Ole’s Whale Watch Bar is a classic local hangout where guests gather for drinks and a casual bite. Little River Inn has a beautiful, nine-hole golf course that plays like 18 and is appropriate for many skill levels. The Inn also has a Day Spa with three treatment rooms and offers in-room services, and just recently launched a full-service salon offering pedicures, manicures, facials, and a hair studio. Overseen by fifth-generation Innkeeper Cally Dym, Little River Inn celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2014. Little River Inn is located two miles south of Mendocino overlooking the Pacific Ocean For additional information, visit www.littleriverinn.com.
