We enjoyed the cozy, peaceful cottage at the cove. Each day we explored the island but came back to the cottage to spend time walking on the beach, enjoying the view, and cooking our dinners. We had planned on going out for dinner at least one evening but decided to stay in. Everything was there that we needed including the... More

I was worried that the online presentation of this place could not possibly be real BUT it was! Everything was perfect and exceeded our expectations. It is very private, clean and most importantly cozy. Our bed and the sheets were so comfy we did not want to wake up in the morning...luckily the view out of our windows changed our... More

We spent a weekend in February at the cottage and it was perfect! It's cozy, quiet and the hot tub on the cove was the BEST! We got to enjoy the fireplace and the beach was a fun walk. Valerie and Charles were really accommodating--they allowed us to check in late since we were coming from Seattle and were flexible... More

We spent Christmas at the Cove, our first visit, and were very impressed. Very gracious people and a cozy cottage on the water. My wife and myself can highly recommend Cayou Cove. I think the description mentions romantic or family oriented. You could certainly go either way.

Cayou Cove exceeded our expectations. Our beautifully appointed cottage was cozy and warm and our delicious breakfast brought to our cottage a delight to all senses. Attention to detail is Valerie's specialty from the mint sprig and flower on our fruit in the morning to her keen sense of her guest's needs. Yet, all done in the most non-intrusive way.... More

My husband and I have stayed here several times over the past decade. The Place at Cayou Cove is a special destination for us (it's a 12-hour drive from our home), not just because of the lovely accommodations and gorgeous setting, but also because of the delightful owners. Earlier this month, we celebrated my husband's birthday in the Carriage House,... More

The attention to detail is extraordinary, everything is perfectly placed, and the layout couldn't be better. The moment you walk in you can feel a sense of relaxation sweep over you. Valerie has built something truly special and we intend to visit at least once a year. There is no other place like it.

We loved our three nights in the Gardener's cottage at the very peaceful Cayou Cove. The private view of the cove from the adirondack chairs made for a lovely morning and evening perch. We also found the owner to be extremely charming, and we particularly enjoyed visiting with one of the resident cats -- Max. We hope to return someday!

My husband and I spent 3 glorious days/nights nights at the Gardener's Cottage at Cayou Cove last week - a belated 34th anniversary celebration. It was so lovely, private, quiet, pampering. Sheer delight! From the beautifully landscaped grounds, paths & brooks -- to the organic veggie garden (I enjoyed "picking" several delicious salads & veggies, practically right outside our door),...

Truly the most beautiful place to stay on the island. The owners and caretakers do an exceptional job...and the full service package is definitely worth it. Breakfast is amazing! Relaxing, tranquil, a fruit and vegetable garden to pick from... we would go back in a heartbeat.
