This B&B is located in a beautiful cove with fabulous views. The innkeepers are wonderful, helpful people that enjoy what they do. The breakfast each morning was very tasty and bountiful, each afternoon they offer an open bar to serve yourself cocktails. Afternoons sitting in an Adirondack chair with your drink of choice, gazing at the surf and sunset was very enjoyable.The B&B is conveniently located close to towns that offer several choices for dining.

Room Tip: Surfsong is a quaint, charming seaside room but very small. The bathroom ceiling is very low and is...

By far the best B&B I have stayed in. The staff super friendly and helpful, very clean,many little surprises such as the welcome basket, the sherry and chocolate in our room. But I can not express how outstanding the breakfast was, combined with a breath taking view I did not want to leave. I be back!!!!

Any one experience here at the Inn would make it an all-time favorite: gourmet breakfast, delicious view of the cove from our breakfast table, sweet doe we met on our hike to town, cypress trees whispering in the breeze, or the fabulous massahhhhhhhhhge. What makes ELk Cove Inn the BEST is innkeeper Elaine, who greets us with a hug, her inimitable accent, and her 5-foot (if that) cuteness! We feel as if the spirit of Boomer and Asta prevailed, now that some rooms are pet friendly. My best friend and I plan to return for 20 more.

Perfect. I couldn't fault it. Cheerful, helpful staff, fabulous location, great rooms and the best breakfast in California. Stayed three nights and wished we had stayed longer. The rugged, almost private, cove was suitably mysterious in the morning mists and a wonderful setting for this interesting B&B . A perfect base to visit the vineyards and forests with some thigh tingling local walks. Our favourite Hotel/B&B on our 2 week, 6 location stay in CA.

Room Tip: They are all great value.

We stopped for just one night, but wish we had time to stay longer. The people were all great--the staff and guests all friendly. The views from the property were beautiful, even with overcast skies. A short walk down the hill took you to what seemed a private beach with a few picnic tables--great for sharing some snacks and a bottle of wine (provided in the welcome basket)! They thought of so many nice things---the bottle of wine, homemade cookies, bag of popcorn, chocolate and Port wine by the bed, happy hour, and the best part--the fantastic breakfast buffet! Nothing else like it! We were very happy in Molly's Garden room, a less expensive option, but the rooms with a patio overlooking the ocean would be a great splurge. I would have been happy for hours just relaxing with a good book there, taking a 10 minute walk to town for dinner and maybe getting a spa treatment...next trip up north. A destination in itself!

We had simply the best time. And all of the lovely ladies who run the space were phenomenal. From Elaine to Mary to Patty, to our lovely massage therapists Peggy and the british woman who's name I forget, they were all so super-helpful, smiley, and added a lot to the day. And the venue and view and bonfire on the beach and little extras in the room and amazing breakfast, all added to just a perfect weekend. Thank you!!

Room Tip: The cottages are our favorite. Especially Surfsong, even though it's the smallest. So beautiful.
