“Perfect for the Three of Us”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

We booked the two room suite. It wasn't expensive and had plenty of room for my husband and I and our teenaged grandaughter. We could see Rideau Lake from the window of the sitting area.
I was very pleased with our breakfast in the sun room. A lovely view of the lake and the morning mist. Our breakfast was well prepared and plentiful. I'd go back again.

Looking for some peace and quiet on our honeymoon and time to recharge our batteries, my wife and I couldn't have found a better spot!! Bearing in mind we were in the low season, it was the perfect remedy for complete exhaustion. The Cove is owned by the Cowan family, they were great hosts as well as the staff. Although the main inn is well worn, the family take pride in making special renovations every year. Our room was clean, cozy and comfortable and the jacuzzi bathtub was the showstopper. Breakfast was complimentary, both very enjoyable and filling! We stayed in the main inn and enjoyed the heart, soul and personality of its old walls. The furnishings are somewhat eclectic and there are many lovely paintings to look at from local artists. It doesn't take long to see that the Cowan family are very much a part of Westport, and the Cove is very much a part of the local warp and woof of the community.
Lots of great local shopping and local restaurants to choose from. From being in Westport in the summer we know it is busy little spot, but for what we were looking for in our 'mini' honeymoon, The Cove was the perfect place to hideout!!

Room Tip: Pick a room with a view of Westport pond, or of the bay.

Located at the bottom of a spectacular downhill ride. Old Ontario charm. Gorgeous patio with a sunset view during a relaxing dinner.
Comfortable clean rooms with thankfully no phones or TV.

Absolutely beautiful area, the place is nice. Spa is a great option. However, we ended our stay early because we mind as well have had a sheet for the door. We could hear everything and could not get any sleep. The room was very nice, but very tight. Will not be going back.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs and don't expect it to be quiet.

So here's the scoop on the Cove. I was up in Westport on business, had to find a place to stay and lucked in with the Cove. I was truly surprised and delighted to see the place when I arrived. It truly is the place to be. Not only is the Cove party central for this great community, it's also an elegant and truly great trip back in time.

The rooms are NOT what you'd expect from a modern hotel. There are no phones, televisions are huge gracious bathrooms. In fact, when I checked into the room I fel like I was taking a step back into the 40's. The room was simple and gracious and meant for someone who wants a comfortable place to sleep and get cleaned up before getting back out into the incredible community that is Westport.

There was a sink in the room and a private bathroom that included toilet and tub. The bed, though, was THE most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. The next morning I went for the breakfast and really delighted to have a warm and delicious treat.

The folks at the Inn cook up an egg casserole with onions, peppers and potatoes that reminds me of home. Sides of bacon, sausage, toast, fresh fruits and muffins were accompanied by coffee that beats Tim Horton's every which way to Sunday.

Yup, there's a sense of community and home that the Cove Inn exudes. Add to the mix their down-home fun parties in their lounge and you'll get the feeling that you've come home and are surrounded by friends and family. You won't want to leave.

I'll definitely be coming back next summer with my wife.

We've traveled quite a bit over the years and I'm constantly drawn back to The Cove. We were recently there over Thanksgiving weekend. As usual the staff was very friendly - if you need something or want to find out what to do or where to go in town - just ask.

The Cove has a hot tub and sauna (some rooms have hot tubs too). There are kayaks to use which are fun and of course a pool and nice area to sun overlooking the busy harbour. If you go in the winter - which is fun too - there is skating on the pond. As others have said there is plenty of shopping within an easy walk.

I really enjoy having a coffee or drink in the lounge and talking with the staff and locals. The morning breakfst buffet is nice not having to go out first thing in the morning. Another poster mentioned Thursday Jazz Nights - too much fun for all ages and other music - like the Blues series can break up a long winter.

Oh - thank God there is no TV or phone in the rooms.

Is it perfect? No, but close enough for me.

We are a hiking group from Ottawa and have been going to The Cove for years. We've stayed there 3 times this year alone. This is family run and it's wonderful to see the next generation joining in with the same welcoming and happy manner. The Cove Inn itself reminds me of a more simple but elegant era.
We usually stay for 2 or 3 nights to enjoy the town and Frontenac Park. A number of us also like to explore other small towns in the area. Westport however is the jewel sitting along the shores of Upper Rideau Lake. You can see the lake from a number of the quaint rooms.
I was somewhat reluctant to write this report as this inn feels like our own special place that we'd like to keep to ourselves. However we also want them to prosper so that they'll be there for many years to come. We're looking forward to our next visit!

Room Tip: If you want to pamper yourself ask if they have a jacuzzi suite available.
