Sad it is that I have to advise that the Inn on the Cove burned on Sunday night, January 8, 2012. Almost a total loss, it remains to be seen if the Mavises will rebuild or if this fine establishment is lost for good.

This Inn has a very strange customer service policy for its off season guests. They book you a room and do not disclose that there is no service provided to the guests in the morning for breakfast or check out. They leave a continental "breakfast basket" in the room for you consisting of - two juice boxes, two apples, one... More

I went there to use several gift certificates to the place and used them all to have about 5 deep tissue massage sessions. The staff were very courteous and accommodative and the masseur was excellent. He not only did a fantastic job with the massages, relieving a lot of tight knots, but also took a proactive role with existing discounts... More

Lovely staff but it went downhill from there. The room was ordinary as was the breakfast. Nice view of the Bay of Fundy but that is about it!

This was toward the end of a very long trip for us, and we didn't have much we wanted to do in Saint John, so we spent most of our time in the room just relaxing. The view is nice, and we enjoyed the deck and the tub overlooking the bay, but the rest of the room was just kind... More

The overall experience was luke warm and perhaps a bit better because of our appreciation of each other. The service staff were negligible and removed from customers. No sense of healing or warmth. But the location is great.

We only stayed for one night but it was well worth it, the staff there were very friendly and accomodating. The room was clean and the balcony had a great and relaxing view, the air tube has a great view from the large window. It is located a short drive from downtown. There is a great walking trail that is... More

Inn on the Cove has the best table in town. Chef Ross and his lovely wife, Willa, are the consumate hosts and the meals are absolutely outstanding. From the "Hot Rock and Rolls" which start each meal to the final bite of Ross' chocolate souffle or cheesecake, you will enjoy every mouthfull. The atmosphere, in front of the roaring wood... More
