Perched on a secluded bluff overlooking dramatic rock arches and the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, the historic Harbor House Inn on the Mendocino Coast has been transformed into a luxurious destination following eight years of meticulous renovation, one of the Best New Hotels in the World in 2019, according to Travel + Leisure. Originally built in 1916, this intimate 11-room inn and tasting menu-only restaurant (awarded one-star for the 2019 Michelin Guide) in the tiny, charming town of Elk affords guests the opportunity to feel, breathe, and take in nature’s beauty in its totality.
A true sense of place permeates everything – from the redwood planks on the newly vaulted dining room ceiling sourced specifically to match the original old-growth wood in the rest of the building to the ceramic plateware handcrafted by local artisans to the black trumpet mushrooms, wild borage and uni foraged and incorporated into naturalistic creations by Executive Chef Matthew Kammerer, named one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs for 2019.
