The original portion of our Maine B&B was built in 1894 and operated as a private home until the early fifties when the Cullens, who owned a lobster roll place in Lewiston, remodeled and converted the first floor to a restaurant called, surprisingly, Lobsterland. In the early seventies, the property was purchased by the Aikmans and converted back to a private home.
Rebirth as a Premier Maine B&B
In the mid-90s Rose Aikman expanded the building to its current footprint and began operating as the Wolf Cove Inn.

Maine B&B Gains New Owners and a Complete Renovation
In December of 2013, Sue and Roy Forsberg purchased the Inn. Our vision for the Inn is to provide our guests with a luxurious but quintessential Maine experience. Right away we began an intense four month long remodel of the Inn. We’ve gone from 10 to 11 rooms and moved from 4 rooms without in-room private baths to only 1 room with a private across the hall bath. We’ve completely updated the flooring, wall, window and ceiling treatments on the first floor. All guest rooms now have the finest luxury sheets and bedding and most rooms have had wallpaper replaced with a soothing palate of paints. We’ve upgraded carpeting throughout the Inn. And for your entertainment pleasure all rooms now have flat screen LED TVs with DirectTV. Our liquor license allows you to purchase any wine and beer you found you enjoyed at our complementary wine, beer, and cheese tastings on weekend afternoons.
Sue & Roy Forsberg: Your Maine B&B Innkeepers
Sue and Roy are both coming from a different world than Innkeeping. We are both technology professionals who as R&D managers and executives have delivered hundreds of new and innovative products to market from speech recognition to video-conferencing to Internet infrastructure to data center operating systems to high performance computing solutions. In January of 2013, we made the decision to go in a different direction and Roy left the corporate world. Roy’s mission was to completely remodel our Methuen Massachusetts home to sell. In June of 2013 we sold the Methuen home and moved to Sugarloaf from where Roy set out to purchase a Bed and Breakfast. In December, that mission was completed with the purchase of Wolf Cove Inn! Roy was running the historic Maine B&B while Sue continued her technology career for the next 18 months. Then at the end of July, 2015 Sue left the corporate world and she too is full time at the Wolf Cove Inn!
