And After A Fun Day Of Winter Activities …
Now that you’ve flexed those muscles and filled your lungs with fresh air, it’s time to relax back at the Wolf Cove Inn. Take a dip in your romantic spa tub and fire up those jets. Even better, book a spa treatment with our therapist and really get the kinks out. We have many other specials and packages to enhance your stay.
Later on, relax with a glass of wine in front of our living room fireplace overlooking Tripp Lake. Furthermore, you can hang out for dinner and enjoy our Tripp Lake Pizzeria evening dining. Or you can head out to any of the wonderful restaurants in the area.
All too soon, your stay will be over, but not before having our wonderful Maine comfort breakfast. Maybe it will be our scrumptious Autumn Harvest Baked French Toast or a delicious fresh made Quiche. We look forward to hosting and serving you this season and can’t wait for you to experience the magic of winter in Maine!
