Our Top 5 Romantic Picnic Ideas

1) Lakeside Bench In Our Pine Grove

Romantic Picnic Ideas - Overlooking Tripp Lake At Wolf Cove Inn

Our Lakeside Pine Grove At Wolf Cove Inn Is A Great Romantic Picnic Idea

Nestled on the shores of Tripp Lake in Poland, Maine, the Wolf Cove Inn has a bunch of romantic picnic ideas around the property. Our lakeside lawn is one such spot, as is our Boathouse Bistro. However, another guest favorite is our rustic Adirondack bench for two right at the water’s edge.

Any of these spots around the Inn are great romantic picnic settings. In fact, they’re not just been great for picnics. They have also been known to offer the perfect atmosphere to pop the question for many a starry eyed suitor.

2) At The Cave In The Heart of Poland Trail

The Base Of The Cave Formation Has A Babbling Brook Across The Way

One mile from the Wolf Cove Inn down Tripp Lake Road, you will find the trailhead for The Heart Of Poland trail system. There’s a nice, quiet spot on the Cave Trail that is a great romantic picnic idea. Nestle up by the base of the cave and listen to the water splashing in the babbling brook on the other side of the trail.

3) A Scenic Overlook On Bri Mar Trail On Rattlesnake Mountain

Overlooking Sebago Lake And The Presidential Mountain Range

First off, there are no rattlesnakes on Rattlesnake Mountain. That sure would be a romance buzz-kill.

Located only ten minutes from the Wolf Cove Inn, the Bri Mar Trail on Rattlesnake Mountain has several excellent romantic picnic spots. This is an awesome place for a picnic while on your Maine honeymoon. Hike about one mile and choose the ledges overlooking Crescent Lake. Or hike another ten minutes for the Sebago Lake Overlook ledge pictured above.

4) At The Summit Of Bradley Mountain

Romantic Picnic Ideas - Bradbury Summit

You Can See The Coast Of Maine From Bradbury Mt Summit – A Great Romantic Picnic Idea

If you don’t mind driving about 30 minutes, the summit at Bradbury Mountain State Park in Pownal, Maine is a great picnic spot. You can take the gradual ascent to the summit. Or if you are like me, you’ll opt for several of the steeper ascents (Sue probably wouldn’t be feeling the romance). That said, none of the trails are strenuous.

5) At The Base Of Poplar Stream Falls

Picnic At The Base Of Poplar Stream Falls In Carrabassett Valley, Maine

If you opt to take a picnic lunch on one of your scenic day trips in Maine, the base of a Maine waterfall is another one of those great romantic picnic ideas.

North of the Wolf Cove Inn in Carrabassett Valley is the popular, but quiet Poplar Stream trail that leads to two waterfalls in Maine. The lower falls are about a 45 minute hike that is mostly a nice walk along the stream through the woods. The base of the lower falls has plenty of nice spots to enjoy that picnic lunch.
