We were looking for a place to stay after spending 5 days in Quebec, and wanted something that was quiet and relaxing, on our way home, and close to the US border (it's 20 miles from Vermont). Ripplecove was perfect. This hotel is gorgeous inside and out. Beautiful flower beds surround the grounds, and the view of the lake is... More

I bought tickets to attend Orford Music Festival and booked this heavenly place since it's only 20 min from the concert venue. The check in was very fast. We booked a Luxe room #34 with a breathtaking lake view with a balcony. The room was spacious, clean with big pillows which I love. The washroom was big enough as well... More

What a great hotel. The location is beautiful. The lake is perfect. The environment is perfect for relaxing. This morning we took a quick swim in the lake and then watched a family of ducks on the restaurant patio at breakfast. Service / food at the restaurant is also exceptional! Highly recommended!

I was looking for a nice, quiet place on a lake where I could unwind and recharge my batteries, and I found it at the Ripplecove. It's a beautiful, antique-filled inn in a stunning location. The staff are outstanding, the food is excellent, and the atmosphere is restful. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a getaway.

Great inn, beautiful location, the staff is wonderful, delicious food (we had the tasting menu with the wine pairing) one night, what more can you ask for on a long weekend away? I call it perfection! The room was lovely with a beautiful view of the lake, great bed and pillows.

We were thrilled with the beautifully appointed room with small balcony overlooking the lake. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. We enjoyed both dinner and breakfast in the dining room. The food was well prepared and tasty. Service well paced. No complaints.
