If you are looking for a charming , peaceful, laid back resting place with rustic charm, this is an ideal secluded oasis located minutes from the ferry in the village of North Head.Avoid this inn if you crave a big screen TV in the roomand the usual hotel "stuff" . We rented Miss Eloise Derby's room in the main building... More

We learned of this location through Trip Advisor. We wanted a place to stay for three days where we would have room to move around and to be able to prepared some meals. A cottage sounded like the right place. The Inn at Whale Cove Cottages is a five minute from North Head, the ferry landing. Owner Laura Buckley, also... More

We didn't stay here, but we did eat here on the recommendation of another inn owner on the island. The food was fantastic, the service was great. Overall a wonderful dining experience. We also took the opportunity to walk around the grounds a bit before dinner and enjoyed the scenery very much.

Returning to the Inn at Whale Cove Cottages and Grand Manan is a dream come true – one that stays the same, yet never gets old. Laura Buckley’s wonderful compound that includes charming inn rooms and cottages, from rustically-cozy to luxurious is the ideal base for a stay on this special island. I’m not sure who has a better time... More

We woke in the morning, in a comfortable bed to a cool breeze off the water, a the site of whale cove from our attic window. Our bathroom, and the inn's sitting room were full of books, one of our favorite things. But the best surprise was the superb cooking of our innkeeper. We travel all over the world, and... More

We ate at this property with another couple after a delightful whale watching afternoon. All our meals were very good to excellent. The crab cakes were probably the best I've ever had and the Seafood Medley couldn't have been better. No deep fried here! The only disappointment was the lack of wine choices; one red and white by the bottle... More

We spent one night at Whale Cove Cottages and wish we had planned for more. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and well appointed and immaculate. We will stay there again if we return to grand Manan. Breakfast is wonderful and dinner at the restaurant is not to be missed. We loved the atmosphere, food, and service. Everything was nearly perfect.... More

We spent four nights in one of the B&B rooms in the inn. Spotlessly clean, very comfortable, and charming--antique furnishings, leaded glass windows, and tasteful watercolors by local artists. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful! Examples: fresh peach pancakes, strawberry rhubarb compote with greek yogurt, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon, etc. Gorgeous view of Whale Cove right outside, and immediate... More

We ate in the restaurant and the food was interesting and nice, but really quite expensive for what we got. I would not recommend the restaurant for children. Better to go to Sailor's Landing for a family meal!
