After reading all the reviews here I wasn't sure what we would find at Sandpiper House. We are frequent visitors to the Mendocino coast but we had never stayed in Elk previously. We enjoyed our two night stay. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was good size and had all the things we needed; shampoo, abundant towels, hair dryer, huge tub, and plenty of hot water. We enjoyed our breakfast watching the amazing view with hummingbirds flitting around the gardens. Chatting with Curtis was interesting and he certainly knows the area well. He is the inn keeper, gardener, cook, housekeeper and a volunteer fire fighter but not the owner of the house. Yes, the house shows its age but upkeep on a house so close to the ocean isn’t easy especially since the owners live out of town. We enjoyed the garden and all its secret delights and the view is outstanding. We would be happy to stay here again!
