Stayed in Miss Eloise Derby room, plenty of room and thoughtful details. Grounds beautiful. Excellent view of Whale Cove. Breakfast included and excellent. We chose to dine there 2 nights and food was superior. Would definitely return! 💟

If you're looking for a standard issue, Holiday Inn Express type of place to stay...well, this isn't it. Then again, if that's what you're looking for you won't find it anywhere on Grand Manan anyway. If, however, you love places in a beautiful natural setting, with history, character, and some creaky, quirky charm, where you can really appreciate the wonders... More

My husband and I did not stay at the inn but we had the opportunity to enjoy dinner there one evening. Reservations are a must and well worth it. The setting allows for great views of the gardens. The food was excellent and very nicely prepared. The deserts were amazing too.

We stayed in John's Flat after stopping in to see the dinner menu and finding out that it was open for two nights. The king bed in John's Flat is one of the best beds I have ever slept in. The view was incredible. And there is a resident pheasant family that makes itself known from time to time. Dinner... More

Just had a great two-day stay at this great property. Rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The restaurant serves a delicious breakfast and dinner offers a selection of three different excellent starters, entrees, and desserts. Enjoyed every bite. The property is very well kept and quiet; and offers several hiking/walking trails

The location and accommodation is really great (albeit you would expect this given the price) but I personally found the food - both dinner and breakfast - to be ordinary considering the high price and the "service" that came with it unbelievably terrible. There is no choice at all offered for breakfast - you get soggy French toast whether you... More

Firstly the good: Our room was excellent. It was cozy, clean and nice with lots of excellent reading material. The B&B is in a beautiful location close to a nice beach and other attractions. The bad: service at dinner (which HAD to be at exactly 6 pm to suit the inn keeper) was close to non existent. We waited and... More

Clean and well organized, it has a bedroom with a jacuzzi tub for 2, a bathroom with shower and a well appointed kitchen. Great linens and towels, and a little spot to... More

The Inn at Whale Cove Cottages is fabulous! We came here 20 years ago for our honeymoon and came back this year for our 20th Anniversary. Once again we were amazed by how beautiful the view is, how clean and inviting the accommodations are and how great the food in the restaurant is. Laura, the owner, made us feel so... More
