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

Welcome to Elk Cove Inn … since 1968

It’s all yours. One of the most spectacular views on the Mendocino coast. Nestled in peaceful seclusion atop a bluff overlooking a mile of dramatic beachfront, the Elk Cove Inn’s Craftsman-style Mansion was built in 1883 by the L.E. White Lumber Co. as the Mill Superintendent’s home. It became one of the first bed & breakfast inns on the Mendocino Coast in 1968. The inn is set back from the road, surrounded by native trees, a creek and the ocean, with private stairs to the driftwood-strewn beach below.

Watch migrating whales and otters at play just steps from your room or from the inn’s signature gazebo. Or descend the inn’s private stairs to stroll on the beach. Relax in the hands of the North Coast’s finest, professional therapists at our European-style Day Spa. Day or night, there is simply no better spot to relax and reconnect. Local shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. Historic Mendocino village, fabulous Anderson Valley wineries, lighthouses and dramatic redwood forests are just a short drive away.

THE ELK COAST is comprised of four coastal hamlets: North Greenwood, Elk and Manchester. Adding to its splendor is the Stornetta Lands National Monument, 25 minutes south of Elk Cove Inn.
