The Destination
Approaching Mendocino on Highway 1, you might feel as if you've driven back in time. As the speed limit slows and the ocean views open up, you'll pass wind-swept cypress trees that seem to be left over from the Jurassic period, and the misty bluffs on your left—beaten down by millennia of crashing tides—appear to precede time itself. This is the Mendocino Coast in all its untamed majesty.

The Digs
It's around here that you'll find the Elk Cove Inn & Spa, about 15 miles south of the town of Mendocino. Balancing its wild environs with sheer luxury, this 19th century property boasts sweeping ocean views, sumptuous morning feasts, and plush accommodations. Garden-view rooms overlook the property's colorful herb and flower gardens, and they're appointed with a king- or queen-size bed, electric fireplace, private bath, access to the rooftop deck, and a sitting area with TV.

The Diversions
In the morning, tuck into a gourmet breakfast for two, which, in addition to champagne and a spread of fruits and pastries, includes a main course inspired by the innkeeper's Southern upbringing—corned beef hash, corn pudding, and cheese grits, perhaps. (Don't miss the biscuits with sausage gravy.) Walk it off on the beach just below, or head up to Mendocino, home to more than a few quaint boutiques and antiques shops, excellent restaurants, and several nature preserves where redwoods hold court over the ancient, ferny landscape. Don't forget to indulge in a couples' massage back at the on-site spa for a true taste of California luxury.

  • "LOVE this place! With perfect grounds and the nicest staff! You are greeted every morning with a smile, handshake, and beautiful breakfast! We will be returning every year! My fiancé and I have even decided to make this our wedding venue!"
