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 Rideau lakes ONTARIO

Rideau Lakes is truly the hub of eastern Ontario, with Provincial Highway 15 and the scenic historic Rideau Waterway running through its Centre. The Township of Rideau Lakes is blessed with an abundance of lakes. Rideau Lakes has 500 km (310 miles) of shoreline, excluding the Rideau Waterway. The Waterway itself traverses the Township, from the towering granite cliffs at Chaffey's Locks to the more gentle and pastoral areas of the Lower Rideau Lake. The Waterway represents an important link with the past. With island-studded lakes, man-made channels, flowing rivers and pastoral sites along its length, the Waterway offers excellent water for canoeing, sailing, boating and fishing.

Along with all of the water and activities that go with it, the Rideau Lakes is surrounded by beautiful little towns and villages offering unique shopping and dining. Several festivals and fairs also provide entertainment while visiting the area. During the summer there is a Farmer's Market every Saturday morning. If you have never been to the Rideau Lakes area or you are a returning visitor and would like to find out about places to stay, stores to shop at and things to do, visit our Business Directory.
