We arrived late. We quickly checked in. My wife and I were weary from the 4 hour car ride. We went directly to their spa and my wife had one of the most wonderful messages she has ever had. I sat by the fire and read and let my mind go. We went back to the room which was absolutely...

A Thanksgiving dinner at the Auberge Ripplecove turned into a stay for the night at the Hotel. We had tried to book dinner at another restaurant nearby but were unfortunately told the restaurant was fully booked...hence we headed to Auberge Ripplecove. When we called to book the restaurant we did enquire about booking a room but were told that the...

We spent a week at the Ripplecover a decade ago or so; and loved everything about it, especially the food. This time around, we still like everything about this Inn. The room was perfect, the cleanliness throughout the hotel is exemplary. Everywhere you look, you seem busy bodies with their dusters ... Really, I've never seen anything like it. Even...

ROOM: We booked a “Superior” room and got a good-sized, clean, and comfortable room. The décor was rather dated, but the website shows that many rooms have been renovated so changes might be on their way. The bed was very comfy and clean. There is a small wall-mounted TV and a gas fireplace (out of service in the summer). The...

We planned to break up our 12 hour drive home from Quebec City by staying at this Inn which we discovered while perusing the Select Registry catalogue. We totally underestimated how much time we would want to spend at the hotel and exploring the surrounding area. We booked a Queen room with a lake view, and although we did not...

We loved our superior room with a lake view - very spacious and beautifully appointed. We had our dog with us and we were very pleased with the only "dog friendly" room available on the property. It was perfect for easy access for taking the dog for a walk. The front desk staff was very welcoming; however, we did not...

We stayed a few nights here, we had a good time. The views to the lake are nice. The staff was super friendly and helpful. It was all nice and fun until the night came to go to sleep. Our bed was a full size bed so small that our feet was almost outside. We both are average height between...

Just returned after three nights at Ripplecove, our second visit and even more lovely than our first! The food is creative and top notch, no "weak sisters" any day. The service is just wonderful and the environment one that is difficult to leave. You will not be disappointed with your stay at this beautiful resort located on beautiful Lake Massawippi.

My wife and I stayed here at the recommendation of a Professor at Bishops University. We were in town for our daughter's graduation and normally when we previously visited her at school we stayed in Lennoxville or Sherbrooke where accomodations were not very good at all.

Ripplecove, Owner at Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel and Spa, responded to this review

Thank you for your rave review! Even though your daughter has now graduated from Bishop's University, I hope you will all find yourselves back in the Eastern Township's for her annual homecoming weekend in October. As a fellow Bishop's Alumni myself, I have many fond memories of Bishops and various homecoming events. I'd bet your daughter will too.
