We just love Hornby Island and we love Ford's Cove. It used to be really rustic and rough around the edges. The water was terrible at one time and the store was very rustic. However, they have spent a lot of money on infastructure. The cabins have been updated. Nice king beds, new furniture, Big Screen TV in the bedroom. The deck is huge. You have to go to Hornby, so close to nature. Rinaldo was very hospitable and was interested in providing you with what ever is needed. The store is recently replaced and a restaurant should be open soon. Keep up the good work. We have seen big improvements over the 20 years we have stayed there.

Our four-day stay in the single bedroom waterfront cabin (#1) in Ford's Cove was not enough - we could have happily stayed on for a few months! The cabin's expansive 2-tier patio is perfectly positioned for view and sunsets, and a great location for sundowners! The rustic simplicity of the cabin made for easy living and a true holiday feel. All essentials are provided - just remember to bring your own condiments and shampoo. The general store, which is steps away, is well supplied with fresh food and staples and offers pizza in the evenings and fresh baked goods in the mornings. There is a short, steep flight of stairs to a long stroll along the seashore. The staff are friendly, efficient and hard working. Don't expect high luxury, just enjoy the simple pleasures and comforts that define living on Hornby. We can't wait to visit again!

Pros - Nice enough view, great bed and great TV. Nice beach below. Good to have a store. Cons- shabby cabin. If I knew how shabby it was I'd never have booked it. I swept the entire deck upon arrival and took down the cob webs. The out door furniture was gross. Had to sit on a towel. Glad to have the opportunity to explore Hornby Island but next time we will try the Sea Breeze.

I been coming to Hornby for many years and stayed at many different places on the island until I found Ford’s Cove, the best keep secret. Since then I been coming here with my family for the last 3 years and myself and the kids just love it. We always stay in the 2 bedroom cabins which are ocean view. The cottages are simple but have everything we need. One bedroom has 2 beds and one bedroom has a queen sizes bed. The kitchen has a large freezer/fridge combo, a stove and oven. The living room has a comfy couch that can be turned into a queen size bed as well. The cottages are always clean and they are constantly updating the cottages and the property. I say that because if you are looking at pictures that are updated here on trip advisor they are not up to date and do not reflect the cottages. Many of the pictures here don’t even exist anymore due to all the updates the new administration has done to all the buildings. One of the things that surprised me this year was how hard I saw the staff keeping up with all the new covid protocols, from the store, to the cottages, the campground and common areas. That made me feel safe. I saw them cleaning the cabin beside me and I noticed the cleaning staff sanitizing even the door handles as they walk away. A shout out to the employees at Ford’s Cove for been always very nice and welcoming. Can’t wait to get back here next year

I have stayed at Ford's Cove on several occasions and have always enjoyed my stay. It is so much quieter and more peaceful than the over-crowded Tribune Bay Campsite. The grounds are well kept, the washrooms are clean and the staff is friendly. Ford's Cove is the best campground on Hornby Island by far. In fact I have a campsite booked for 12 days from now!
