    Why We Love This Hotel

    • Guests receive a welcome gift basket filled with homemade chocolate chip cookies, fruit and wine plus an "exceptional breakfast" (Zagat)
    • Complimentary cocktails and wine served every afternoon in the lounge
    • There's direct access to Greenwood State Beach below
    • Rated one of the Top B&Bs in the West by Sunset Magazine


    Opened in 1968 as one of the first B&Bs along the Mendocino Coast, the Elk Cove Inn has made a name for itself as one of the Top B&Bs in the West (Sunset Magazine). The cozy and secluded inn sits atop a bluff in the sleepy town of Elk, where visitors come to take in dramatic coastline views and stunning sunsets over the Pacific, and do little else but relax.

    The main house -- a craftsman-style mansion that once served as an executive retreat for the local lumber company before becoming an inn -- is home to six cozy rooms, each with a unique Victorian-style design. Other accommodations include standalone cottages with a fireplace and large ocean-facing picture windows, and oceanfront suites with cathedral ceilings, jetted tubs and a private balcony or patio. A private staircase leads down to Greenwood State beach below.

    Thoughtful amenities include a welcome basket of homemade cookies, fruit and wine, and complimentary cocktails and wine each afternoon, but perhaps the most special treat is breakfast – also complimentary – which comes with bubbly or mimosas and a hearty array of breakfast favorites.

    Ownership change since last visit, we think. Little things noticeable. Quality and plushness of bath towels. We left early one morning and left the room in a little bit of disorder, but put the sign out not to disturb. Upon returning, noticed maid had been in room to "tidy up" . Bed mattress had a a middle sag . Made for uncomfortable sleeping. Staff was great. Full on breakfast, was great.

    Very romantic location. Property well maintained. Massage therapist, Connie, is amazing. Innkeepers, Amy and Joshua, are super personable, observant, and willing to go above and beyond to make your stay memorable.

    The little gestures at this place just make you fall in love with it, even more. Welcome basket was unexpected and delicious. Breakfast was yummy and slightly different each day. Who does self serve happy hour...this place! The restaurant has a chef come in 2 days a week. I highly recommend having dinner here, worth every penny.
