Smallish but nicely renovated cabins in a well kept campground. Very nice view of the water and right above a spectacular sandstone beach. My wife and I and our 2 little boys stayed a week and loved it. The little store they run down at the pier has an amazing variety of food as well. The owners were friendly as... More

The view of the ocean, islands and sunset from our waterfront cottage was beautiful. Such a peaceful spot. The staff were great and the cottage was well-equiped and very comfortable. It is a bit dated, but that is part of the charm. The little marina store is surprisingly well-stocked, with locally made goodies and ingredients for any cooking and meal-prep,... More

Ford's Cove cottages are the perfect place to have a romantic getaway with perfect sunsets, and even relaxing swimming off of the warm sandstone rocks. I met my wife there and we go back every year. The cottages have a nice rustic charm with some luxury, and nice decks to sit with a glass of wine, or beer ;) The... More

We opted to camp at Ford Cove instead of staying in a cottage. The cottages looked worn and not too clean. The campsite is ok, however dirty dirty shower stall. Yes only one stall....dirty tiny sink in bathroom shed. No place to wash dishes or get water for your campsite . They could place some emphasis on maintaining their property.... More

We are so surprised that you did not notice the construction of 2 new outdoor sinks with counter area (while you were camping here the tiling of the counter for the new outdoor sinks was being done). Our washrooms were under renovation and being painted while you were here. These new sinks replace the small indoor sinks and this eliminates... More

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
