This one-of-a-kind, Mendocino resort, with its luxurious accommodations and European-style Day Spa, is totally dedicated to your rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
Not far from Napa and Sonoma, a drive on California's Route 128 takes you through the Anderson Valley - home to boutique wineries and champagne cellars; then leads you through a magnificent redwood forest to the Pacific. There, a rarely taken left turn, south, on CA 1, The Coast Highway brings you to the hamlet of Elk and this beautiful Bed & Breakfast Inn. The property is perched on a secluded bluff overlooking a sheltered cove. The views are breathtaking. An exclusive private staircase leads you right to a quiet, unspoiled, driftwood-strewn beach. We are located 150 miles North of San Francisco and 15 miles south of the village of Mendocino.
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 Company as the Mill Superintendent's home. It became one of the first Bed & Breakfast Inns on the Mendocino Coast. 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.

All rooms include the luxury touches you demand - feather beds, fluffy comforters, silky robes, and exquisite linens. Nearly all have fireplaces, and most have direct ocean views. When you arrive you're treated to a welcome basket with a split of local wine, fresh fruit and our famous homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. A decanter of Port and chocolates await you at bedtime. Your stay includes a sumptuous gourmet, full buffet breakfast.
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 are within easy walking distance. Historic Mendocino village, fabulous Anderson Valley wineries and dramatic redwood forests are just a short drive away.
All rooms feature private baths with fine toiletries and hair dryers, wall-to-wall carpet or natural wood floors with area rugs, window seats or skylights, decks or private patios or balconies, irons and ironing boards. There are no in-room phones or TVs to disturb you. Wireless internet access is available throughout the site.
The best business decisions are often made in relaxed moments, when busy professionals take time out from the pressures of daily work to plan creatively for the future of their company. Consider the Elk Cove Inn in Mendocino County for your small business and California retreats.

Elk Cove Inn ~ The Perfect Place for Your Magical Wedding
Northern California Coast Wedding: Standing with your beloved under the gingerbread roof of the gazebo with the Pacific Ocean spreading out to the horizon beyond is an unforgettable setting for that most special moment. Who wouldn't want to be married here on the Mendocino Coast? It's soulful, very romantic. You take away with you a gift that lasts the rest of your life.
This Mendocino Coast inn is ideally suited to small wedding parties of 30 and fewer. Elk Cove Inn can handle all the details of your special day - minister, officiator, photographer, champagne, cake, flowers. Or, if you choose to take care of your own arrangements, you can pay a site fee and we will provide you a list of local Mendocino Coast service providers. A two-night minimum stay is required on weekends (one night minimum Sunday-Thursday); we prefer that you book the entire inn if you have more than 20 people but we are flexible and will work with you to insure that your special day is as perfect as possible.
Effortless Elopement Package - A Mendocino Coast Wedding without the worries

We've thought of everything: our fabulous gingerbread-crowned gazebo for the ceremony, your officiate, a traditional bouquet of seasonal flowers and matching boutonniere, an accomplished wedding photographer to capture your perfect day in a disc of digital photos, a stunning and sumptuous wedding cake for two, a silver service champagne tray to toast your union and 2 nights accommodations in one of our oceanfront luxury suites. $2,850 inclusive.
