Ripplecove was, well, hit and miss. Stayed there in early June with family and enjoyed the grounds, the location, and the cabin we were in. I would have happily given a miss to everything else. The breakfasts were alright - stylish but not delicious - they filled the hole. We also stayed for dinner one night and it was underwhelming... More

I must say I came away from this place severely ticked and it's taken me a little time to sort out my thoughts and work out why. The Ripplecove bills itself as offering "the refinement of a 5 star hotel surrounded by the beauty of nature" and from my experience, that is just not so. A couple of lines of... More

Excellent location. Great Service Nice Lakefront view rooms. While excellent, diner was a bit less then expected: We had requested to be served fast because of a show commitment. Service was slow enough for us to be late. Food was great

The location cannot be beaten - you can easily find peace and quiet just within a few steps. The service in both hotel and restaurant is very accommodating. When my room service got delayed - I was told I wouldn't have to pay for it. The room decor was dated though, especially wallpaper. Make sure to visit Laiterie de Coaticook... More

I have stayed in this inn during all seasons and I honestly can't pick a favourite. Each one is different and beautiful in its own way. The inn always surprises me with its latest renovation which is always tastefully done with great detail to quality and its environment. The staff and management are committed to making sure your stay is... More

Overall a good trip. Our second stay at this property. The facility is impeccably clean, excellent hotel service. The location on the lake can't be beat and is the real draw to this establishment. Overall the food was excellent. We stayed in a 'Luxe' room which was very nice. Excellent beds. Previously we stayed in a Superior room which we... More

First let me thank you for your positive comments at the beginning of your review, however, you have made other comments that are simply untrue.

After a very long winter! It was nice to get away for a few days. If you are looking for comfortable hotel with a peaceful eloquent surrounding and fine dining, this is the place. It's the second time for my wife and I at the Ripplecove. The first time was a few years back in the fall. We are looking... More

I bought a ticket from Tuango for this hotel. I was really expecting an unforgettable weekend but I came back home after the first night...We had room #16, which is beside the lobby. We heard everything, every sound all night long!?! Did we sleep?? NO!! We also had a very bad service from the receptionist «Dominic»... When I talked to... More

I was very surprised to read your comments on Trip Advisor following our telephone conversation shortly after your departure. I had explained to you that as your room was located adjacent to the reception, the reason for the voices during the night emanating from the front desk was due to our training of a new night auditor. I apologized for... More

Only spent one night at the Inn back in June of 2014, very beautiful setting. Gave a good deal for the room, a little disappointed did not have a balcony. Very close to the hot tub, and they provided bathrobes as well. The pool very nice clean. Views of the lake were lovely. We had a drink outside when we... More

Thank you so much for your positive review of Ripplecove lakefront Hotel. I have passed on your comments to all relevant personnel, especially those comments concerning the pricing for your martini.
