The triumphant return of the Mushroom Train on Saturday, November 12 is cause for celebration. Little River Inn is a proud sponsor of this beloved event that benefits MendoParks and features the mushrooms Mendocino is justly famous for. This year’s program includes an artisanal whiskey tasting for an added fee. Gourmands will board the quaint, heritage Skunk Train in Fort Bragg and meander along the world-famous Redwood Route, through terrain that has remained untouched for centuries, to a beautiful redwood pavilion at Glen Blair Junction in the heart of the redwoods. There they will feast on mushroom creations, including a delectable mushroom bisque from Little River Inn’s own Executive Chef Marc Dym, sip local wine and whiskey, gather round for campfire educational programs and S’mores, and perhaps even meet Bigfoot.
About Little River Inn
Little River Inn is a family-owned and operated historic resort in Northern California that is home to a chef-driven restaurant, a nine-hole Audubon-certified golf course, professional tennis courts, and the friendliest service on the Mendocino Coast. Ideal for the entire family (and pet-friendly as well), the Inn has 65 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 dedicated following, with many items, such as Ole’s Swedish Hotcakes and the Ollalieberry Cobbler, lauded by visitors and locals alike. The dinner menu can be enjoyed in the charming dining room or outdoor garden area, while breakfast is available via room service, to be savored from the comfort of one’s own private deck (or even in bed). Ole’s Whale Watch Bar is a classic local hangout where guests gather for libations or a casual bite, and at certain times of the year, to watch the migration of the gray whales. Little River Inn has a beautiful, nine-hole golf course that plays like 18 and is appropriate for many skill levels. The Inn also offers massage services in both the spa room and also in-room. Overseen by fifth-generation owner Cally Dym, Little River Inn was proud to celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2019.
