"We (husband, daughter and friend) had a wonderful time at Elk Cove Inn & Spa. The room (George Burk) was cozy, clean and had a wonderful view. The ground are equally gorgeous with so many flowers in bloom. The beach is clean and not at all crowded. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast is served every morning and was very good! The Inn is close to State Parks, Fort Bragg, and Mendocino, where you can find so many things to do. I am looking forward to returning next year."

Overview

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.

Only negative is that it is about 25 minutes drive from Mendocino, if that's where you plan to spend a lot of time, and eating options for dinner are very limited. But breakfast at Elk Cove Inn was fantastic.

This is a great place to go and just relax and enjoy the beauty of the ocean and surrounding area. The "pop up" restaurant on Tuesdays and Saturdays is unbelievable. The food is world class, the service attentive and friendly, even the chef waits on tables. Dinner was an amazing experience. I would drive a couple of hours just for the dinner, it was that good. Best pasta dish I have ever had in my life..

Celebrating our anniversary, we stayed in the George Burke Suite which was fantastic with beautiful views of the Pacific Coast. All the staff at Elk Cove were very friendly and provided outstanding service, which made our stay very enjoyable. Breakfast was outstanding with plenty of options. An evening complimentary cocktail reception was also provided with wine and mixed drinks. A highlight was a French Chef came to the resort on Saturday night and cooked a fabulous dinner. I highly recommend the Elk Cove Inn & Spa.

The views and overall location are exceptional. It's worth coming here just for that, including the private beach access! Staff, service and the grounds were all top notch. We really enjoyed the daily champagne breakfast and the extra in-room amenities as well.
Other Comments
Our room (Frank Drew Suite) definitely could use some updating. The bed and pillows were too firm, we both woke up stiff (we're in our 30's so that's not normal for us). The bedding was also very worn and didn't match. One of the robes was very soft and comfortable, the other was too scratchy to wear. I was also disappointed in the jet tub, the automatic drain wouldn't let the water fill to a level above the jets so when I tried to use them they just shot water everywhere and I had to turn them off.

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.
