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

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.
