Fifteen years ago, we happened upon Elk Cove Inn and stayed in a little cottage room that felt like being in a wonderful tree house. We loved this place and kept a picture inside a kitchen cabinet so we would remember to return. Alabama is a long way from the Northern California coast and it was many years before we were able to visit again. On this trip we upgraded to the Frank Drew Suite (see pictures) and I felt totally spoiled. The owner and her staff truly make you feel welcome. The suite was beautiful and had everything - small fridge, microwave, sink, plates, glasses, flatware and corkscrew. You are given a welcome basket on arrival - wine, grapes, cookies, and microwave popcorn. The large bathroom has a jacuzzi and shower. The view from this suite is incredible. I enjoyed sitting on the stone porch and just gazing at the grounds and the ocean in the distance; it felt like a little piece of heaven. If you are able to manage the stairs (picture), they lead down to a trail to the shore. We spotted an otter making a dash for the water and enjoyed a walk on the beach. Complimentary wine and cocktails are served in the main house between 4 and 6. Breakfast offers a variety of tempting dishes - more than I can describe here.
