Totally Romantic! We decided to spend our 40th Anniversary at the ” Elk Cove Inn & Spa “, in Elk CA. It was a tropical paradise ! The flowers all around were so beautiful, you could hear the crashing waves from your room. We had a ocean view room and the sunsets were Awesome. To top that off everything you ever wanted or needed was in your room: ice box, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, coffee pods, silverware, glasses, can opener, salt & pepper. There was a special goodie basket waiting for us on our bed with grapes, cookies, microwave popcorn and wine, There was an electric fireplace in the room and a smaller one also,the bathroom was huge, with a shower and jetted tub … The breakfast buffet was to die for, so delicious. In the evening they had crackers, celery, spread and different wines.There is so much more…. We cant wait to come back!!” – TT, Granite Bay, Trip Advisor
