Recent Elk vacation rental reviews

Great spot to spend a quiet weekend. Well appointed kitchen made cooking a breeze.
Mark A. | Feb 2024
This home was very cute and great for a little weekend getaway. The deck was newer and the views are unmatched. The home itself is cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. My only complaint is that there was a very unpleasant smell upon entering the home. I am not sure if it was from a rodent or the fact that the house is older, but it was a little off-putting. Aside from that, we did enjoy our stay and the peace and quiet the home provides.

The unique architecture, esthetic, ambiance, and setting are phenomenal. We have come here several times a year for a long time. Some deferred maintenance needs addressing like water leaks in garage and deck area but we love it. Can't wait to go back.

Things to do in Elk, CA

Despite its diminutive size, Elk offers some lovely dining options for its lucky visitors. Queenie's Roadhouse Cafe has legendary eggs Benedict, and pub food doesn't get much better than at Bridget Dolan's. For a really unique experience, head up the bluff to the firehouse/dive bar (yes, really) Beacon Light by the Sea for a few laid-back beers and a lot of interesting conversation from the affable owner.

Anything else you might need is within easy reach in the larger towns of Mendocino or Fort Bragg to the north. Of course, the real draw is the coast itself. Rugged cliffs, sweeping vistas, and picturesque sea stacks make this stretch of shoreline a photographer's dream. To get a little closer to the beauty, take an ocean kayak tour, or plan a horseback ride along the beach.

Just north of town is the gorgeous Navarro River Redwoods State Park, a must-visit for a scenic hike under a canopy of old-growth trees. And after a long day of exploration, book a massage at a local spa for a well-deserved treat!

From luxurious escapes to adventure-packed weekends, our Mendocino vacation rentals in beautiful, charming Elk guarantee an experience you'll never forget.
