It's not a B&B; it's a B&F!
Calling the Elk Cove Inn a Bed & Breakfast is like saying a Rolls Royce is an automobile. It is, more precisely, a Bed and Feast.
What else could you call a breakfast that starts with champagne or mimosas and continues with a sumptuous array of egg dishes, mouth-watering pastries, fruits and -- here comes the best part -- such distinctively Southern dishes as hominy pie, spinach quiche, and memorable biscuits and gravy? Even the coffee is the best there is. (A local Thanksgiving brand.)
Well, it's not just because this is the South Mendocino Coast. The daily brunch is part of the signature hospitality arranged by owner Elaine Bryant, who happens to hail from Alabama.
The other details that make this an incomparable destination include the sound of the ocean outside your room, the sprawling vistas, and the paths along the grounds and the mile of uncluttered beach below.
A graceful gazebo and nearby benches provide a calming link to one of the most scenic accesses to the Pacific Ocean. The serenity of the place is absolutely healing.
If you simply must let the rest of the world intrude, there's high speed Internet. There is no cell phone service along this scenic stretch of Highway One. That may be a blessing in disguise. Meanwhile, you can savor the understated elegance of the Elk Cove Inn. There is a lingering aftereffect of nature's absolute tranquility.
Those, however, are simply details. It's the morning feast that keeps many of us returning.
