A dear friend recommended this Bed and Breakfast to my husband, who surprised me with a birthday trip. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The cottage was perfect with a beautiful bay window overlooking the beach and at night we would leave the window open just a bit to hear the waves crashing on the beach. The breakfast buffet...

The vista as we entered the town of Elk was breathtaking! If you enjoy a rugged coastline with boulders jutting into the sky, this is the place for you. The Elk Cove Inn is set off from the main road with stunning views of the cove and gardens that are colorful and well-tended. We were welcomed warmly and shown where...

`The context: First, the room price: over $400 which would set this place among the very sophisticated hotels we ever stayed. Second, the reservation which we wanted for for 2 days was changed to 3 days because we were told that this was the minimum for a weekend reservation. The surprises: The hotel grounds are very small (oh the beauty...

I have for years visited the northern coast of caCa. Travel from Bodega Bay to Bandon Or. I would have to say the best spot I now know of is Elk Cove Inn and Spa. I like the plush suites and surounding coast which is quiet and easy to treck to. The staff was very nice and the breakfast is...

My husband and I recently spent an evening in the L. E. White Suite at Elk Cove. We visited several inns before choosing Elk Cove. Many of them were nice with good views and many amenities. Elk Cove was, however, the only one that was excellent in our book. The view from our room is something that you have to...

We did a two-night "getaway" stay at Elk Cove and had a marvelous time. The innkeepers are charming, helpful and knowledgable. The inn is located above Greenwood State Beach and has trail access to the beach and the town of Elk. Elk is about 25 minutes south of the town of Mendocino. The ocean view from the inn is beautiful...

We took our two sons, ages 12 and 14. The older one asked if he could be adopted by the owners of the Inn so that he could stay! The room was very comfortable, the food was delicious, and the scenery was beautiful.

What a wonderful inn, on a spectacular property. We felt like we were the only guests staying, until others were spotted at breakfast! It is a beautifully appointed, quiet, peaceful retreat that we find ourselves coming back to year after year. The breakfasts are sumptuous!
