There is only one meal and one seating for this Sunday evening experience. The menu goes online Sunday morning and we were fortunate enough to get a reservation that helped us celebrate a special occasion. The homemade rolls, the unique salad dressing, the whole meal was a gastronomic experience not to be missed. We were fortunate enough to experience the... More

My boyfriend and I loved our visit to the Inn at Whale Cove for dinner. The menu changes daily so you can't predict whether there will be something to your taste; therefore, I recommend checking the menu on the website (which is uploaded daily). The inn itself is charming, with beautiful gardens overlooking the ocean. We sat next to the... More

Wow what an awesome experience we had staying with these lovely people. I wish we had more time to stay longer! We checked in and were relaxing within minutes. We got a call within 10 minutes to see if everything was ok and it certainly was. The flat was Extremely clean and was equipped with absolutely everything we could possibly... More

We didn't sleep here but found the dining room excellent. The charming historic inn served us local steamed mussels in coconut and lime broth, an excellent salad with crisp greens and fresh late season wild strawberries, pasta with lobster and other seafood with fresh parmesan and dill. The dessert was plum and raspberry crisp a la mode. A pot of... More

Great food! Very tasty and worth the money. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but it's well worth the money. A ton of food that is seasoned and prepared perfectly. I've been there twice now for he dining and it has yet to disappoint me. Definitely will be going back in the future.

My family and I had a sumptuous dinner at the Inn at Whale Cove; fantastic, and unique. While there, we snooped and looked at one of the unoccupied rooms. It looked so wonderfully sweet and welcoming. Chock full of old but comfortable antiques, books, and pictures with a fabulous setting directly on a cove. I'd urge you to look into... More

Stayed here two nights in the Eloise Darby room, which is in the main Inn. Accommodations were spacious and comfortable. We had back door access to a lovely lounge that connected to the dining room. The included breakfast (only for people staying at the Inn) was ample and delicious. The grounds are beautiful with a fantastic view of Whale Cove.... More

We didn't stay at the Inn, but was offered a special meal by a family member. The dining room was full on arrival. The hostess offered a table and menu quickly. The menu changes frequently over the season. Ours had 4 appetizers, 3 mains and 5 desserts. We shared crab cakes (fantastic), almond encrusted salmon and raspberry/rhubarb crisp with ice... More
