Fodor's Expert Review Elk Cove Inn & Spa

6300 S. Hwy. 1, Elk, California, 95432, USA

Perched on a bluff above pounding surf and a driftwood-strewn beach, this property has stunning views from most of its accommodations, which include seven rooms, five suites, and four cottages. The most romantic are in the cottage buildings, where each room is unique but all have peaked ceilings and hardwood floors. A newer Arts-and-Crafts-style building houses the suites, which have a more modern feel (including Jacuzzi tubs). A lavish champagne breakfast and afternoon cheese, wine, and cocktails are complimentary. Spa treatments take place one at a time in a private building with a view of the ocean. If you want a massage, book early; the calendar is often full. With its quiet setting and high cliffs the inn is not ideal for young children; inquire by phone before booking.
