I have been up and down this pristine CA coast since 1979 and nothing beats these lush romantic ocean views except possibly the Monterey Peninsula or Big Sur. Many rivers and bridges thick with Redwoods and curvy well paved roads. Wide and plentiful pull outs for picture taking and parks for walking or picnics. Unique small town grocers and eateries but not many gasoline stations between Jenner and Mendocino so fill up first or take a hybrid. Glass Beach was disappointing but everything else is phenomenal.

A weekend getaway to Mendocino was much needed for my partner and I. The weather was beyond amazing for November. 60's and sunny, not a cloud in the sky... almost magical. Mendocino in the fall is a walking dream... crisp air, intense colors, and the distant smell of campfire sprinkled with sea salt.

Started off the evening by having a wonderful dinner at cafe beaujolais. The next morning we enjoyed an early stroll into town from the inn while enjoying a hot cup of coffee from Moody's Organic Coffee Bar and taking photographs of the fall foliage.

We ended off the day with a private horseback ride during sunset on the beach with our amazing guide Vida from Richocet Ranch.

Staying on the northern California coast is very relaxing and beautiful. Come here to see the beautiful views from the ocean to the redwood forests.

This was the high point of our California vacation - horseback riding on the Mendocino coast with Richocet Ridge guide Vida was so fun and with the most beautiful views!!!

My husband and I were in need of a quick weekend get away and was told about this Inn in Elk. Everything about this place was magical. When you arrive there until you leave you feel so at peace and rested. The gardens are awesome, the views are amazing when the fog lifts and the FOOD!!!! Outstanding**** I would totally recommend this little unique hideaway to relax and enjoy yourself.
