What it's like

Set back from the road and surrounded by native trees, Elk Cove Inn Restaurant Spa's Craftsman-style mansion was built in 1883 by the L.E. White Lumber Co. In 1968, it became one of the first bed and breakfast inns on the Mendocino Coast and has been delighting guests ever since. From basking in the refreshing ocean air and taking in the breathtaking water views to watching majestic whales migrate and otters play, Elk Cove Inn Restaurant Spa is sure to provide you with the relaxing coastal getaway you've been searching for.
