Peace and Beauty! I cannot imagine a more incredible and relaxing experience then Elk Cove Inn. We were immediately upgraded to a full view room (midweek), Surfsong, everything it’s name implies; falling asleep to the sounds of surf while watching the sun set over the ocean! Staff, food, environment, hiking, beds, trails to beach and tide pools are exceptional! Only 30 minutes from a fun day in Mendocino and ocean-bluff hiking trails. I normally prefer to try new places, yet this was my third time staying here and I definitely plan to return!” – Santa Rosa CA, TripAdvisor
