All Suites & Rooms

Sunset Magazine selected Elk Cove Inn as one of Top 10 B&Bs in the West … the dramatic setting, exceptional and unique rooms and suites, along with first class hospitality. Choose from sixteen sumptuously appointed suites and rooms: oceanview luxury suites, cliffside oceanfront cottages, carriage house rooms, plus elegant rooms in an historic mansion. We make your escape to the coast effortless, the utmost in refined relaxation.

Oceanfront Junior Suites

These dramatic and well-appointed guest suites are perched on the bluff above Greenwood State Park Beach, with banks of windows filled with a view of Pacific Ocean, beach, and offshore sea stacks. Each suite is generously proportioned, with a sitting room, electric fireplace, arts and crafts furniture, wet bar with Keurig  coffee-maker, microwave, and refrigerator, a private balcony or stone patio, and of course, a lavish bath with separate shower and Jacuzzi jet tub.

You’ll feel the sense of privacy provided by concrete reinforcement between floors, and the walkways between rooms make each suite feel like a world unto itself.

The Craftsman style bungalow design of the suites embodies the early 1900s Arts and Crafts philosophy of serenity, commitment to handicraft, and luxury. Built exclusively of redwood, the exterior features Montana flagstone walkways, mortared stone work, wood shingles, copper gutters and hand railings, copper capped balcony posts, and Ed Hurley (local Mendocino physicist turned artisan) light fixtures of copper and stained glass.

Our suites are named after former owners of the estate.

Cliffside Cottages

Our cliffside oceanfront cottages are nestled in the embrace of a grove of Cypress trees, and Greenwood Creek where it wanders out to the beach just below your view of the ocean. Oceanfront Cottages have open cathedral ceilings and large picture windows, electric fireplaces or wood-stoves, include coffee makers, TVs, microwave ovens, and refrigerators.

Comfy chairs invite you to large picture windows for a morning reverie or the afternoon browsing of a novel with a cup of tea or glass of wine in front of the fireplace.

Craftsman Mansion

Originally built as an executive retreat by the L.E. White Lumber Company in 1883, the main house retains all the charm and elegance of the hospitality of yesteryear. No wonder that the Elk Cove Inn made such a gracious transition to becoming a bed and breakfast getaway, one of the very first established on the northern California coast, in 1968. 

The six rooms in the oceanfront mansion each have their own style from cozy to baronial, with garden and ocean views. Choose a room that looks out over our herb and flower garden, or with a direct view into a grove of cypress trees, or then again, would you ever tire of watching waves splashing against rocks from a second floor aerie.

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.
