On the edge of the Pacific Ocean sits the beautiful Harbor House Inn. Located in Elk, California, this 1916 Craftsman-style Inn is the perfect reason to visit the charming town of Elk. Speaking of charming, check out my blog post, The Cutest Towns in California featuring some of the cutest towns in CA I’ve visited including Elk.

Arriving at Harbor House Inn
Upon arriving at the Harbor House Inn, we were pleasantly greeted with the most stunning views and beyond attentive service. About a week before arriving, we were sent check-in details including a fabulous Spotify Playlist (so clutch I’ve never received this from a hotel and LOVED the touch), as well as the option to pre-order our in-room breakfast orders via Tock. Another touch I loved so we spent less time at check-in when we really just wanted to enjoy this HEAVENLY Hotel every minute we could.
With refined rooms, and amazing craftsman style and architecture, I was so excited for what was to come from my stay. The Harbor House Inn is also located on the Coast of Northern CA with tons of Redwoods, so you can imagine how lovely the scenery is. 5600 CA-1, Elk, CA 95432.
The view is absolutely spectacular, California always continues to surprise me. Here is a spot along the back of the Harbor House Inn to enjoy a fire along the coast. We had a fire one evening enjoying sunset views.
You’re welcomed inside The Harbor House Inn Restaurant with high ceilings and even more stunning views. Guests are invited to join for an 11-course dinner (the # of courses may vary depending on when you visit). This is one of the most magical meals I’ve ever had and I HIGHLY recommend you take advantage and book lunch (only $95) or dinner (upwards of $250 per person) during your stay.
We stayed in The Oceansong Cottage with stunning oceanfront views. I recommend a cottage during your visit, for tons of privacy (vs. being in the main building where the check-in and restaurant is). They are a bit pricier but so worth the extra cost.
This is the living room in the cottage. There’s also a quaint dining room table where your in-room breakfast is served and delivered to you daily.
Enjoying some Caviar and Sparkling Brut Rose paired with this gorgeous oceanfront view. This is really the most MAGICAL Anniversary destination!!
Winding down with a relaxing bath paired with some Sparkling Wine.
There is nothing like enjoying the first evening with a delicious glass of white wine with a view… This was the Bennett Lane Winery Sparkling Wine which is super light, delicate and lovely!
Enjoying some Big Basin Chardonnay with a view! This is a fabulous brand down in Santa Cruz and their wines are stunning. Learn more about them on their website here.
Waking up at The Harbor House Inn
Complimentary breakfast is given at The Harbor House Inn, making waking up there that much more special. The staff is amazing and there are so many personal touches to the experience. The breakfast is hand-delivered to your room by the staff and is one of the most exquisite, indulgent, and delicious hotel breakfasts I’ve ever had. Bravo to the amazing Harbor House Culinary team the breakfast was just as magical as their fine dining experience. Read about our dinner at Harbor House Inn Restaurant here.
Morning yoga routine with the best view… equals a very great start to the day.
Visiting the Lovely Town Elk
Elk is featured in my blog post, The Cutest Towns in California for a reason. Not only does it have an adorable town with small businesses to enjoy, but you have to take a walk along the shore.
Overcast in California doesn’t make it any less stunning… We checked out Greenwood Park for a hike and loved absolutely every second of it.
Enjoying a half bottle of bottle of Rombauer Chardonnay after hiking to the beachfront. Learn more about Rombauer Wines from My Interview with Winemaker Richie Allen of Rombauer Vineyards.
