My wife and I recently made a trip to Grand Manan Island, scheduled on relatively short notice, in order to visit Machias Seal Island to see the puffins. We hit the Internet, saw that the Inn at Whale Cove Cottages was highest-rated of 6 Grand Manan listings on Trip Advisor with overall good reviews, and we booked a 3-night stay in John's Flat. The online photos looked good (but don't they always?) and once off the ferry from Blacks Harbour, located the nearby site without difficulty. (Fortunately, the proprietor, Laura Buckley, had emailed us that the entrance is on Whistle Road, not Whale Cove.) We met her at the office and were directed to our cottage up the hill, unprepossessing, plain and sided with cedar shakes as are all the buildings on the property. We went in the door and found ourselves in a beautiful suite with a huge living room, more than adequate kitchen, a lovely bath and a marvelous large bedroom with a king-size bed and elevated Jacuzzi. For once, the online pictures didn't do the place justice. The beautiful view overlooking Whale Cove was a bonus, and the food we had was outstanding. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we stayed an additional 2 nights. The couple of negative comments are hard to fathom as our experience was top-notch. We will most highly recommend this to anyone we know planning to visit Grand Manan.
