So much fun in February @ The Cove!

Dear Friends of The Cove,

We endured a tragic fire on the evening of Fri.Jan.18.2019 at the Fredenburgh Guest House across the street from the Main Inn. Thanksfully, no one was hurt but The Fredenburgh House is closed indefinitely. We continue to be open for business as usual in the Main Inn where our restaurant and bar, live music venue AND nine remaining rooms are located. If you already have reservations in the Fredenburgh House, we will be contacting you to re-locate you at a close-by location as soon as we can. A local friend has created a GoFundMe page if you wish to support that way.

Either way, we have been inundated with generous notes of support over the past week. If you wish to help, please just continue to support The Cove as a the great place community that it has always been! We appreciate your patience. We also thank you all for your support, generosity, understanding and continued business. The show will go on!

Mary, Terry and Seamus Cowan and ALL of us at The Cove in Westport, ON

Explore Westport Ontario

Westport Ontario is one of the most beautiful towns in Ontario. This heart warming village has kept its charm and quaint feel for the past 50 years! There is so much to do as well as natural beauty.

Westport is a landmark between Kingston and Ottawa, so it's the perfect escape. With several accommodations and bed and breakfasts, you can make Westport a weekend vacation or enjoy an expended stay. There are several Cottage rentals as well.
