If you’re searching for cozy lakeside comfort, Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel in Ayer’s Cliff, Quebec will exceed all expectations. On a stunning peninsula, this resort sprawls over 12-acres surrounded by beautiful Lake Massawippi.
Minutes away from the U.S. border, this luxurious mountain escape is easily accessible for those in the Northeast Corridor. According to Jeffrey Stafford, Innkeeper of the Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel, the property is “three hours from Boston and only 15 minutes from Vermont. The I-91 border crossing at Stanstead is NEVER crowded and allows for a stress free customs experience.”
Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel has maintained AAA Four-Diamond Award status since 1987, which will strike you as no surprise when entering the resort’s signature guestrooms featuring large stone fireplaces and private balconies. Accommodations also boast plush furnishings along with hardwood floors and original artwork.
Year-round, the resort offers a multitude of activities for both families and couples on a romantic getaway. In summer, bicycling, kayaking, tennis and canoeing all make excellent choice to get outside and breathe in fresh air produced from the 200-year-old oak trees surrounding the property. Wintertime gives visitors an opportunity to try ice skating, ice fishing or even snowshoeing. Meanwhile, within a 20 minute drive are two world-class ski resorts and a total of nine golf courses.
After a day of outdoor discovery and adventure, Ripplecove Lakefront Hotel's fine dining experiences will delight your palate. Inside the luxurious Victorian dining room that overlooks the lake, guests are offered a diverse menu that features the freshest of ingredients prepared by an award-winning chef.
“Our house-smoked Gaspe salmon is the ‘must-try’ dish,” Stafford said with enthusiasm.
Complementing the gourmet food options, the hotel offers an impressive wine cellar.
Alternate days of activity with indulgent experiences at the Ripplecove’s amazing spa to ensure bliss. Located in a new wing of the resort, the spa features blissful treatments such as full body massages, along with face and body treatments including wraps and facials.
