My husband surprised me with a visit to Elk Cove and we stayed at the Elk Cove Inn & Spa. The rooms are adorable and so cozy. You can hear the ocean from your room and the views are beautiful. The best part may be the delicious breakfast. We are definitely coming back and staying longer next time.

A good 30 minutes remove from Mendocino's crowds of tourists, Elk Cove Inn offers a stunning setting on the bluff just above Elk Cove state beach, a large & well-maintained room, nicely maintained grounds, welcoming staff & an elaborate home-cooked breakfast buffet. Would come back here again in a heartbeat.

4.5 stars We drove from SF for a midweek stay using a Travelzoo deal in November. Using the Travelzoo deal, you cannot select the room you want ahead of time, so we got the Ridgeview Room upon arrival. It is one of the smaller rooms, but very cute with a fireplace, private patio area, and a view of the garden.... More

My wife and I wanted to get away before Christmas and The Elk Cove B&B was something that popped up on our search. What a great choice it turned out to be Dec 10-12, what the weather forecast predicted to be the storm of the decade. The B&B is situated right on the coast with great views and a path... More

This was our first time staying in a Bed and Breakfast. What a wonderful surprise. When we arrived we were shown several rooms in the main house. One is downstairs with its own separate entrance. The other rooms were upstairs and shared a library/lounge area. We were offered the option to upgrade to a cottage room with a spectacular view... More

This was our first experience to stay in a Bed and Breakfast facility. We were pleasantly surprised. Our room was in the "main" house and the room and bathroom were very spacious. We were given a welcome gift basket of a bag of microwave popcorn, fresh grapes, 2 very large chocolate chip cookies and a bottle of cold Sparkling Apple... More

Located in tiny Elk, reached by a spectacularly rugged, twisty stretch of highway 101 (from the south, highway 128 from the east). Our plane delayed six hours due to heavy and wet weather, SF Airport, we arrive well after dark. No one at the office, but an envelope left in the door directs us to a beautifully appointed suite (... More

This year was the second year we stayed at Elk Cove. This time 2 nights and we had the room with the balcony. They were 2 night in paradise. Look forward to going every year. Couldn't ask for nicer people there too. Love the place.

The room was almost three times more than I have ever paid for a hotel in my life (about $400) and from the moment I opened the door I knew it was a phenomenal bargain. The view alone justified the price. We were there two months ago and the scene outside the picture window is etched on my mind. And... More

I grew up in a family where anything more than a Motel 6 was an extravagant and unnecessary expenditure. But I gotta tell you, our two nights at this place with the doors open to the sea, the unobstructed view, and the proximity of all kinds of beautiful attractions, well, if you can afford it, go for it.
