We have been to Ripplecove at least six or seven times over the last ten years. It is our happy place where we go to unwind and be waited upon. The meals are unbelievable, the service consistently top notch, and the beauty of the setting is perfect in every season.

Dear returning guests, I am so sad to realize that you had to stop coming to the Ripplecove because of a handicap. We will consider, of course, in future renovations, to add an elevator to the inn. Be well. Johanne More

Sure. Looks pretty, great location overlooking water. Staff very friendly. But they need some training. Also, the menus need work. Breakfast a major disappointment. Bar menu lacking. Sorry, but this isn't the best hotel in the area!

We are sorry to see that you do not seem to have enjoyed the breakfast menu. I am wondering if this was maybe before we had changed our complete breakfast offerings with our new executive chef, Joris Larigaldie. I am sure hoping that we have a chance to welcome you again. Most cordially, Johanne More

This is a great romantic inn with an excellent restaurant. The breakfast is well worth the price. The rooms and the vistas overlooking the lake will leave you with great memories We would definitely come back.

From the balcony of my room I listened to the loon's throaty call and watched gulls and ducks dive for fish. One of my favourite things about this romantic inn is how it sits so close to the water. Make sure you show up early for breakfast and dinner in order to secure a table by the window. So beautiful.... More

What a beautiful place! The hotel is situated near the lake, surrounded with the views of the water. It is quiet and peaceful. The view from the room and its little balcony was something you wouldn't want to leave. Breakfast was good and the service was lovely. the room was large and comfortable and very well kept.

Ripplecove is a quiet retreat with a luxurious feel. Our suite was beautifully decorated as well as comfortable.
