Comfortable Lodging in Elk

In my last post, I supplemented the August 2006 "Rick's Tips" with more information on winetasting in the Anderson Valley. In "Rick's Tips," I wrote about the lack of lodging and dining available in the Valley and recommended staying on the Mendocino coast.

Our favorite spot to stay on the coast is the small village of Elk, which I first wrote about in the June 2004 edition of "Rick's Tips." Recently, we returned to Elk and stayed at The Harbor House Inn.

This lovely bed and breakfast sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean. You can gaze out over the ocean from a number of the rooms and cottages or while sitting in their beautiful garden. The Inn also has a stairway down the cliff side to a small beach.

We checked out most of the rooms and cottages during our visit and recommend the Seaview and Oceansong cottages for the best ocean views. Your stay includes both dinner and breakfast. This was our second time dining at Harbor House and, on both occasions, we enjoyed both the food as well as the view from the dining room.

If you are planning a visit to California and would like to include the Anderson Valley or the Mendocino County coast on your itinerary, Blue Heron Custom Tours and Travel can help plan your vacation. For more information, please call me at (866) 326-4237 (toll free) or e-mail me by clicking here.
