Should you need to cancel, 14 days notice is required prior to your arrival. A full refund minus a nominal $50 or 5% of the deposit (whichever is more) will be applied to your credit card.

  • Check-in time is 4:00 – 6:00 PM. Please notify us if you plan to arrive afer 7:00 pm as we will need to give you instructions for self-check-in. Arriving after 10:00 pm may disturb other guests. Please be respectful. Check-out time is 11:00 am.
  • Children: Please keep in mind that the inn is not a child-friendly environment, and we mention this for your comfort as well as the comfort of the other guests. Please notify us in advance if you plan to bring young children, so that we can discuss the etiquette and safety issues. Most of our guests are couples who are here because we maintain a tranquil and romantic environment, and there are few places on the property where children can be exuberant, and the parents are expected to maintain the quiet environment. Also, the property is located on an ocean bluff with uneven terrain and few railings or barricades, and there are no “play” areas, or even paths for walking with a stroller. There is an additional $30 per night for each child.
  • We are a pet-friendly inn. You MUST notify us at time of reservation that you are bringing a pet. See pet policies here.
  • Smoking is not allowed in rooms or on the decks, but is permitted in the gardens, well away from the rooms. A $500 cleaning fee is charged for smoking in a guest room.
  • We provide free parking on-site for guests only. We cannot accommodate RVs of any size. Nor do we allow sleeping in one’s car or van within our on-site parking lot.

We stayed in the Drew Frank room, which was fabulous, great view and loaded with first class amenities. My favorite plus was the trail walk to the shore from my room, followed closely by the local “Great Day in Elk” festivities complete with a parade. The new owner and the staff were very friendly and helpful, eager to make our stay a success. The breakfast was extremely well done with varied and interesting selections. It was a great stay, which I wish could have been longer. I definitely intend to return.” – Newport Oregon, TripAdvisor
