Recent Elk vacation rental reviews

We loved staying here. The midcentury architecture was phenomenal, though the place is a bit "worn", since everything appears to be original, other than appliances. The deck overlooking a stunning cove was amazing. We loved it!!

The floor plan of the house worked out so well for us! We were a total of 8, and the house still felt big. The large stove/oven was great for cooking meals. The hot tub and pool table really added fun things to do together. The view was amazing and location was very convenient to go to Mendocino or Fort Brag! Thank you.

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.
