Elk's Best Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast


In 1916, when the Sandpiper House was built, Elk was a thriving mill town. The house was built by the Goodyear Redwood Lumber Company on a rugged cliff above Greenwood Cove. During this era, the cove was a bustling harbor where schooners were loaded with redwood destined for San Francisco. In the late 1930s, the last mill was lost in a fire and the village of Elk became a quiet hamlet perched above the sea.

The gray shingled house is surrounded by a perennial garden and a white picket fence. The rose arbor leads to a beautifully tended lawn, embraced by bountiful flower beds stretching out to the edge of the bluff. Garden chairs are strategically placed to capture the breathtaking ocean views. The garden path disappears over the bluff to a secluded private beach below.

The house is decidedly unpretentious, yet was one of the finest homes in town. It is when you step inside that you realize the classic elegance of this craftsman-style house. The living room and dining room, with coffered ceilings and raised-panel walls, are stunning examples of the use of redwood materials and the craftsmanship of the era.

These rooms are tastefully appointed with comfortable traditional furnishings, mingled with European antiques, oriental rugs, vases and artifacts. An elegant French style hutch dominates the dining room. Mornings, the tables are set with linens and fine china in the Breakfast Room overlooking the magical Greenwood Cove and St. Anthony's Point. You will be served an exceptionally creative two-course gourmet breakfast. (click for Some Sandpiper House Inn Recipes) Evenings, guests can enjoy complimentary wine and hors d'oeuvres beside the living room fireplace.
