Had a group of 4 out to ski at Wisp this weekend, and were looking for a great place with some charm to stay at nearby. I knew nothing of the area, so naturally took to TripAdvisor. Glad I did! Carmel Cove is about a 15 min drive from the slopes (give or take...depending on the road conditions from the snow, which in our case were not so great). We arrived after skiing, around 7pm, and rang the phone to call the innkeepers. Not much talking at that point (as the one reviewer who gave this place a "terrible" review noted) but I didn't mind this too much. They were friendly and to the point. We checked in, and they recommended a great place for dinner nearby (Dutch's). Rooms were not huge, but very comfy and homey. There is a ton of free stuff around to use/consume, which is a really great touch. There is a free bottle of wine in the room with some glasses, some cookies and sodas, port and beer in the common room, and some other assorted snacks. We made use of the pool table in the common room, as well as the DVD collection, but they also had some board games as well. Breakfast was also fantastic! Only real complaint I could have was that our TV didn't work (Terrace Room #4), but who cares! Also, we only booked 1 night, and the innkeepers had a minimum of 2 night stay on the weekend, so I had to wait until the week of to get them to agree to a one-night stay. Can't say I blame them, but worth mentioning. Thanks!
