Set back from the bluff tops along Hwy 1, the Elk Store has been the hub of the community it serves since 1927. Locals gather for coffee & conversation, while visitors from around the globe stop for picnic lunches & Made in Mendocino specialty foods.

A recent renovation has given the Elk Store a fresh look, while maintaining its country grocery charm. Step inside onto its original wood floors where the “creak” announces your arrival. Northern California chevre, brie, roast turkey, salamis, smoked salmon & more fill the antique mahogany & enamel deli case, vintage 1930’s San Francisco.

Order a custom sandwich to experience what Moon Handbooks Coastal California declares: “the Elk Store whips up some of the best sandwiches in the known universe…It’s a must-stop if you’re planning a picnic.” Add a bottle of Mendocino County wine from America’s Greenest Wine Region or an ice-cold Mendocino microbrew to your basket. Shop for jams, mustards, olive oil & vinegars, all crafted by Mendocino food purveyors. A perfect souvenir gift!

While you check your emails at the only WiFi hotspot for miles, enjoy a cup of locally roasted organic French Roast & peruse through the poetry & prose of Elk authors in the Elk Book Nook.

A selection of deli specials offers you in-room dining at your lodging ~ veggie lasagna, traditional meatloaf, steak ‘n bacon chili…add deep-dish carrot cake, chocolate brownies & mini-cheesecake for dessert.
