Recent Elk vacation rental reviews

You can’t beat the view from this house. It is a small, cozy house. Be aware that the only bathroom is inside one of the bedrooms. The beds are really comfortable. We were missing a lightbulb in one of the lamps in the bedroom and VACASA was very responsive in sending somebody out timely. The kitchen could use a few more cooking utensils and a 9 x 13 baking dish. It would be nice to have a binder with information such as how to access the trail that you can see right from the backyard that takes you to the beach.

Trying and failing to keep this hideaway a secret as I have never slept better in my life. A result of mornings spent on the deck, breathing in deep the new day, my daily walks along the bluff to the beach, soaking in the view with a good book and curling up by the fire at night. Love the time capsule vibe that forces you to escape.

Title says it all. The architecture is inspiring, the coastline is picturesque, and our stay was lovely. My only feedback is that the lighting is very dim/ambient so the home could use some better/brighter lighting for reading and games.

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.
