What a lovely location to begin our two week sojourn through Canada. We opted for the lakefront room and did not regret it. The room was pristine and turn down nightly left no detail undone. Bikes and kayaks were readily available whenever we wanted. We had the pool to ourselves at times and the hot tub was secluded and had... 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. A small balcony overlooking the lake was just large enough for three people to sit for a meal. We had a continental breakfast delivered to the room each morning. For dinner we ate at Le Riverrain. The restaurant is excellent and advance... More

We just got back from a night at the Ripplecove. It is in a stunning location - beautiful inn - wonderful lakefront. Sitting outside for breakfast is truly unbeatable, looking over the beautiful lake. Our room was very nice, as were the common facilities.

We have just finished a gorgeous weekend at the Ripplecove. Firstly the weather was spectacular and adds to being beside the water. We enjoyed the lake, pool and spa tremendously. The staff catered to all our needs and were very friendly in both English and French. They ensured that whatever activity we wanted was set up and well run. Our... More

The Good; The grounds and hotel are picture perfect. We opted to stay in the cabin for its privacy and tranquil setting. The weather was outstanding allowing us to enjoy cycling, tennis kayaking and peaceful views of the lake. The Bad; I will preface this part of the review by stating that the serving staff on duty during our stay... More

This property is lovely. The grounds and flowers are well-maintained. Our room small but very clean. The food and service, however, was absolutely grim... long waits for service and food that was mostly cold, processed, and unpalatable... This is inexcusable for a 5 star hotel. The waitstaff was clearly untrained but to their credit, bilingual. We felt their frustration as... More

We have always wanted to stay in this inn and on the end of our perfect vacation in Quebec we were able to stay here and we loved it. The setting is absolutely gorgeous.

Two couples, one night,with golf, dinner and breakfast. Superb food, fine service, comfortable room. Staff friendly without being obsequious. Kayaks were all in use, or not enough. Would like to come back and just relax there. Golf at Duffner Heights is an adventure in rise and fall. Had a cart, but would have preferred a sherpa.
