Our stay at The Elk Cove Inn & Spa was amazing. We spent two days there, as well as 7 additional days in 4 other Inns. The accommodations at Elk Cove far exceeded any other. The bed was just wonderful, the best night of sleep we have had in years. The breakfast was something no other Inn could possible measure...

This was our third trip to Elk and our first stay at The Elk Cove Inn & Spa. In the future, I can't imagine staying anyplace else. Our cabin was cozy and romantic with a view to sigh for, and just a few steps gets you to the beach. Breakfast is a real occasion (I'd go there just for the...

I know I will only be telling you exactly the same as everyone else has said, but when a hotel and staff are this fantastic it needs to be repeated. The location was just breathtaking beautiful. The room was fantastic. The staff just the best ever. The welcome we received and the attentiveness of Elaine and Patty were unbelievable. It...

We spent our honeymoon at The Elk Cove Inn & Spa 11 years ago and returned for our fourth time this June - it was just as enjoyable as the first. My husband and I are huge B&B fans and have stayed at many across the country. While we have experienced many wonderful B&Bs, The Elk Cove Inn & Spa...

We stayed four nights at The Elk Cove Inn and Spa and it was our very best Bed and Breakfast experience. Prior to our arrival the owner Innkeeper Elaine Bryant had upgraded our room to the Bavarian Cliffside Oceanfront Cottage. We were greeted on arrival with a basket of goodies including a bottle of wine and escorted to the Cottage....

This B&B is above a seemingly exclusive beach of unmarred beauty that gives peacefull scenic views. The ocean lures you down the trail to explore. The rooms are pleasing with suprising touches that delight. The host and staff are wonderful. The breakfast buffet is delicious and served with homemade charm. We will keep comming back!

The two of us stayed here in early May and the location and inn could not have been better. A great time of year for the Coastal Highway, the Mendocino Coast is so dramatic and beautiful, the nearby parks and redwoods wonderful, and the Elk Cove Inn is a perfect fit. Patty and Jeff (or maybe Geoff) are super-friendly, accommodating,...

My husband and I stayed at the Elk Cove Inn in April 2011. We were welcomed with arms open wide by Patty with a welcome gift basket and bottle of wine. In our room was sparkling wine, strawberries, and chocolates and Port! The room had the most breathtaking views we'd ever experienced. Breakfast was superior and the spa was 5...

To our new friends at the Elk Cove Inn, I know that Lisa just sent you some pictures of our stay, however we both wanted you to know how impressed we were with the Elk Cove Inn from the moment we arrived and that great feeling has still not been diminished. The place , the grounds, our room, the cocktails,...

the elk cove inn comes extremely highly recommended. classic, well appointed rooms, beautiful location (overlooking the cove, beach and surf), nicely groomed grounds, and a really fantastic breakfast array. perhaps even better than all of these, though, is the care and service from the innkeepers Patty and Jeff. I really can't think of how they could have made our visit...
