What better way to bathe than in a hand-painted tile shower where one wall is a window that overlooks the ocean as you steam and soap. Antique oak bureau and sideboard with graceful old-world mirrors. A light and bright soft yellow color palette joins neutral tones in the beadboard wainscoting and bedding . Over the bed, a skylight in an open cathedral ceiling. GQ, Town & Country, and Gourmet Magazine to ease you into an afternoon nap.

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.
