Lee A. | May 2022
My husband and I booked this cottage for our anniversary. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The view is spectacular!! The home was spotless and the kitchen was fully stocked with every appliance you may need. We brought our own food since there really isn’t any place to eat near by. We took advantage of the BBQ and enjoyed our meals on the deck. I wouldn’t hesitate to come back, we hated to leave. Lots of nice trails near by and the botanical garden in Fort Bragg was amazing….highly recommend.

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.
