Nice b&b accommodations in Mendocino with great ocean views. Would recommend a view upgrades to the rooms but not a deal breaker. Also, some discreet kid friendly safety measures would be appreciated. I know couples is the main audience but there were a few little ones around.

We successfully found the place with GPS after we were just about to give up -- it was a longer ride than expected. It was definitely worth the ride. The beachside view was spectacular & oh-so quaint when overlooking from the gazebo. Waiting for us in our room was a guest basket of fresh strawberries, a bottle of wine, popcorn... More

Highly recommend this weekend getaway. Perfectly located with awesome suites with great views of the Ocean. Well worth the cost of the accommodation. Elk is a small town, has a nice Pub nearby and the spa has great breakfast and also nice happy hour as well.

Just received a voice mail / email from the Spa, notifying me that the couples massage I booked 24 hours ago cannot happen, due to a scheduling mistake! I was assured, when I picked the 10:00 am time, that all would be perfect... well, I am being told that the only opening is now 2 1/2 hours later in the... More

Wow, this place is great. Simply great. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the rooms were very nice, clean and had super comfy bedding. The grounds are well kept with access to an amazing beach! And they are dog friendly, even a doggie welcome bag of treats and a basket of doggie items in the room for your... More

We found this place on groupon and thought it would be a good place to visit. We are glad we came. It has turned out to be a great experience. Great ocean view from our room. We got upgraded and enjoyed everything. People working at the spa was fantastic. The wifi was excellent and we were able to stay up... More

I must say, it is a wonderful experience... one of the best weekends my husband and I have ever had. This place deserves the 5 star review it has. The location is amazing with an unobstructed view of the sea, it is right on a cliff. The beach is easily accessible and it takes hardly 5-10 minutes to get there.... More

We celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary at the Elk Cove Inn in Elk Ca. The Inn is a wonderful place to escape to. We were greeted by Patty on arrival, and shown to our room. Patty called us by name before we gave our names. That is hospitality! We had upgraded to a suite and it was worth the extra... More

We returned to Elk Cove Inn last week because we had such a great time there last summer. I can't praise it enough. We stayed in a suite with a stunning ocean view, Jacuzzi tub, fireplace and patio. These folks really know how to make your stay spectacular. From the welcome basket with homemade cookies, fruit, and wine to the... More
