This was my fifth stay at Fords Cove. The scenery is beautiful and it is about as far away from the clamor of the city as you can get. Some positives: - Superb service, Ronaldo and Matt really go out of their way to make guests comfortable - Scenery and wildlife are fantastic - Cabins are comfortable and well situated... More

Fords Cove is always open for early May and always fits the bill. Cabins are a nice luxury, very clean & very functional. Camping is well spaced with all the camp sites being different shapes & sizes. The market/store has all you'll need. Just remember to bring Movies & music.

A great way to spend a few days!! The staff were just the best, so friendly and kind, Alexandro runs a tight ship with service above and beyond. My boyfriend and I were in Hornby to bike the trails. We had a blast and the cabin was the perfect end to our days. We rented cabin 2 which overlooked the... More

I have been staying in the cabins at Ford's Cove Marina since the 1980s and cannot say enough about the experience. The owners are constantly upgrading water, sewer, amenities, ground/cabin maintenance to ensure the visit gets better every year. The cabins are clean, beautifully rustic, stocked with pots/pans/dishes,etc. and have a million dollar view. The General Store is right there... More

An impromptu trip to Hornby, landed us at the best cabin ever. I showed up and luckily managed to get a night at Fords Cove. My 2 kids and myself got an ocean front cabin! One bedroom, full kitchen, bathroom and a wood stove. It was spotless and all the supplies we needed were there. The view was incredible!!! It's... More

Hornby island is one of my favorite places in the world! It's beauty is astounding and every different season brings forth a different sense of excitement, orcas whales sightings, sea lions, beautiful lighting from the sun, etc. Hornby is not an easy place to get to hence when I do go there, Fords Cove is my only choice. The sunsets... More

Over the winter I stayed at Fords Cove. Each cabin I stayed in was supremely clean and so carefully tended by the cleaner. And this care and tender attention was matched by the management. My stay was beautiful and brought such a sense of well-being. The folks at Fords Cove bring such a genuine caring to those who stay there... More

After writing to Fords Cove management about the lack of cleanliness during our recent stay and getting no response, I regretfully am posting these images. We have been to Hornby many times and were expecting funky, basic accommodation. But the poor standard of cleanliness was unacceptable. I cringed to take a shower, the shower head was totally black and the... More

We had a great experience at Fords Cove Cottages. The owner generously donated a two night stay to a fundraising auction, and we bid on it and won. We live on the next island over, Denman, so hadn't thought of staying over on Hornby before, other than with school camping trips at outdoor ed. ctr. Our trip was early Feb.... More

Great location, staff was amazing and the cabin was clean and comfortable with amazing views. Loved the wood stove and the huge waterfront deck. Would be a great place to come with a few friends or family and rent a couple cabins side by side. Had a wonderful stay, thank you!
