Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel and Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2012

We arrived early at the Ripplecove Inn. When we approached the check in. We mentioned we were early. In reply He said as guest you are never too early. It just got better and better. Wonderful room overlooking the lake, large balcony to seat on and watch the storm blow across the lake. The tasting dinner we had was one of the best we have ever enjoyed. The staffs are first rate on every level. What a joy to stay at an Inn that lives up to and surpasses its reputation. If there is a 6 star rating they qualify.

The Auberge Ripplecove has everything you want in a first class inn! The rooms, the food, the service and the staff are superb. A beautiful spot on lake Massawippi with the use of row boats, kayaks, canoes, and bikes (and there is a lot of great biking in the area.) If you just want to relax, Adirondack chairs overlooking the lake, it's perfect. An exquisite place for any occasion!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the lake!

Nested in a little cove at the tip of one of the nicest lake in the Eastern Township in Quebec, Lake Massawippi, the Ripple Cove is a very well recognized Inn for its restaurants, wine cellar and hospitalities. Very charming setting and amenities but one would expect nicer rooms. The rooms layout are very standard hotel like with no particular attention to details or the type of layout and amenities you would expect from such an high end, boutique like Inn. Balconies are ridiculously small and room layout do not allow for relaxing in your room setting. The food and service were extraordinary. Ripplecove is a good place to stay for a couple of nights for a comfortabble stay with a very good food but I would have expected nicer rooms for the price.

The location was beautiful, the building was aswell. The staff was extremely friendly and helpfull. As for our "superior" room...it felt like a clean motel, not a five star auberge. The "superior" room with view on the lake was very very normal. The bathroom looked especially in need of a modernisation. I'm guessing we were just unlucky since most people seem to have loved their stay. I guess you should just avoid room 5. I would not like to make any unfounded accusations but I bet they don't like it when you book through discount websites and they just put you in a regular room when you get there. If the room I stayed in was a superior room, I would not ever consider a regular room. Quite disapointed

Ripplecove is absolutely delightful. The lake view and fireplace made our room perfect. Both breakfast and dinner were excellent. We appreciate the tour of the wine cellar and found the perfect wine for dinner from the extensive list. Everyone on the staff was very welcoming. With the included dining Ripplecove offered excellent value.
