Our Maine Wedding Venue Is Extraordinary & Intimate

A Special Day for a Special Couple should be, well, SPECIAL! And if you want your wedding day to be an intimate weekend with closest friends and family then it should be, well, EXTRAORDINARY! Our picturesque Maine wedding venue on Tripp Lake can host up to 60 people for a sit down reception or 80 for cocktail style indoors and up to 150 people outdoors.

The Ideal Setting for a Maine Wedding Venue

At the Wolf Cove Inn Mother Nature provides your wedding décor – and no one does décor better than Mother Nature. For your nuptials, would you prefer towering pines as your ushers? Or would you prefer the sunlight reflecting like a thousand diamonds off the lake as the backdrop for the bride and groom? Or perhaps being enveloped by floral scents in a meticulous perennial garden is your idea of the perfect wedding. Well, at the Wolf Cove Inn we can deliver any and all of those.

This Premier Maine Wedding Venue Also Offers Lodging

Even better, your wedding doesn’t need to be just a day but rather it can be a weekend celebration with family and friends. Luxurious lodging for up to 29 guests in eleven rooms and suites at our bed and breakfast inn, you will be surrounded by loved ones in an intimate, exclusive setting for an entire weekend.

  • Start with a welcome reception for guests on Friday evening in our Maine room or outdoors among nature’s gifts. Whether a full catered rehearsal meal or a light drinks and appetizer social, your weary traveling guests will find a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
  • Before the wedding on Saturday your guests at the Inn can canoe or kayak on the lake or they can join other wedding attendees to enjoy the local hiking and biking trails, shopping in nearby Auburn and Lewiston, sit around our porches and gardens and gab or even try their odds at taking home some winnings at the Oxford Casino.
  • While wedding attendees are having a wonderful day prior to the event, the bridal party is in our spacious bridal suite prepping for the big event. The bride and her entourage will have plenty of room to put the finishing touches on makeup, hair and nails in the Sugarloaf Mountain suite overlooking Tripp Lake. Sip mimosas and nibble on fruit and cheese plates while you have your beauty buffed and shined!
  • Oh, and then have your wedding ceremony and reception right at the Wolf Cove Inn, including the after party! No one has to go anywhere. And when done for the evening, the Inn guests just need to trot upstairs, and the newlyweds right back to that spacious honeymoon suite featuring a large spa and intimate gas stove. And for guests not staying at the Inn we can arrange transportation to other local lodging.
  • Finally, on Sunday morning send everyone off with an added glow at a Sunday brunch at the Wolf Cove Inn – a final intimate interlude of a forever-memorable weekend for the newlyweds, wrapped in the love of family and friends.
