A Jewel nestled and perched above their own beach in this serene spot. on the California coast. We've stayed in Mendocino before but Elk and the surrounding Cuffy's Cove is a magnificent spot! Get ready to throttle back and just enjoy long walks on the beach and watching the waves crash on the beautiful rock formations close to shore! Easy... More

Fabulous location. The Inn is totally comfortable. We had been there before in warm weather. This time we had a serious storm when we arrived and it was wonderful to sit in front of our wood burning stove and watch the wind and rain progress across the Pacific Ocean. Breakfasts are masterpieces with many delicious choices on the buffet that... More

My fiance and I decided to go on a quick two day unplanned spontaneous vacation. We really didn't know where we wanted to go, and just started driving. On our second day we drove from Napa to the coast (Fort Bragg, & Mendocino). We started going south towards Elk, which quickly became a very stressful drive because the cliffs/windy roads.... More

When I selected the Elk Cove Inn and Spa for my New Year's Eve destination wedding, I already knew that I loved Elk, but I had never actually seen this particular Inn. We planned the wedding from Los Angeles, and it wasn't until the day before the wedding that I actually set foot on the grounds. I was absolutely stunned.... More

This was my second stay at Elk Cove Inn. My boyfriend and I came for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. We'd reserved a cabin, but were upgraded to one of the suites (George Burke suite, specifically). The room was beautiful and spacious; had a kitchenette with coffee maker, minifridge, microwave, sink, and all needed glasses, dishes, etc. There's a... More

Review: "My husband and I spent our 15 yr. anniversary at the Elk Cove Inn & Spa in mid-October of 2009. I thoroughly researched the B&B's along the northeast California coastline and though there are many good choices, this is the best of the best. If you want privacy, gorgeous views and the comforts of home, Elaine and her wonderful... More

We searched for months to find just the right place to spend our 25th wedding anniversary. Elk Cove Inn seemed to be exactly what we wanted...luxurious, peaceful, romantic and relaxing. Of course you always expect that what you see online is never what you will find in reality...but not here...our expectations were exceeded. The staff is not only professional and... More

This B&B is, simply put, breathtaking! The accommodations go well beyond all expectations and the staff is fantastic! The view alone is worth the nightly rate, but add in the service, and the rooms, you will NOT be disappointed! We went here for our honeymoon and had the time of our lives! I would absolutely recommend this inn to anyone!

Yes, budget travel can be fun, but it can also become tedious. When you just have to be pampered, it's time to opt for value over price and go for the style of a place. Elk Cove Inn has something like 15 rooms and suites -- all distinctive. Some of the varying amenities are a balcony, views, fireplace, path to... More

We had heard great things about Elk Cove from people we met at the San Francisco B&B where we stayed and were really delighted with the friendly greeting the readiness to let us look around before deciding on a room. We were lucky to be there on the "shoulder" where that's possible. During the season, you will need reservations. We... More
