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

A trip advisor review raving about the hospitality, comfort, and food at Elk Cove Innencouraged us to visit this past week. Everything said about the place is true, and more. Accommodations range from quaint to exquisite, and not enough can be said about the location and view. Everything about Elk Cove Inn was more than my wife expected and we... More

From the moment we arrived and were happily greeted by one of our hosts, we knew we were in for a treat. Our room had a gorgeous ocean view, a fireplace arranged and ready to light, a welcome basket of goodies including a bottle of wine and a bottle of port sitting on the windowsill. The bed was comfortable. The... More

We came here from Ohio for a weekend wedding and it was far more than we expected. The hospitality was unmatched and the entire staff made sure everything went off without a hitch. I was worried about how easy it was to plan with Mary and Elaine but I shouldn't have been. They were accommodating, professional and, most important, kind... More

Great Travelzoo opportunity to stay at the wonderful Elk Cove Inn for two nights. If it is still available, grab it. Beautiful views of the ocean, nice walking beach strewn with driftwood, friendly owner and staff, cozy rooms, fantastic breakfasts...for example, French toast, cottage cheese with oranges quiche, fresh fruit, homemade muffins and biscuits, bread pudding with brandy nut sauce,...

We have stayed at many places on the Pacific Coast and none compares to this delightful and enchanting place. In fact, this year we drove out of our way just to spend another night at Elk Cove. The setting, accommodations, service, and breakfast far surpass even the "special" places you find advertised. This was our second visit and I assure... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Elk Cove Inn & Spa. We had a choice of two rooms/cottages. We actually selected the smaller of the two because we liked the view. We stayed in "Surfsong". We arrived on Friday afternoon in a windy, rainy storm. The manager gave us a basket filled with gifts--wine, fresh baked cookies, and... More

We took advantage of a TravelZoo offer to stay at this B and B for a great price. Upon check-in there were 3 rooms that they showed us and they let us take our time deciding. As other reviews have stated, we received a gift basket of wine, jumbo sized homemade cookies, big, sweet strawberries and popcorn. There was a... More
