One of the Best Places to Stay in Maine for a Relaxing Getaway

When it’s time to slow down a bit, book a stay at Wolf Cove Inn. Situated on beautiful Tripp Lake in Poland, Maine, our peaceful bed and breakfast offers just the counterpoint to your hectic lifestyle. You’ll soon realize this is the best place to stay in Maine for a relaxing getaway. Bring along this guide, and you’ll find everything you need to kick back and unwind. Mix and mingle or dance to the beat of your own drummer; the choice is yours. However, let us tempt you with some options to consider when planning your relaxing getaway.


Peace and Serenity

We offer 11 tastefully decorated guest rooms and a secluded cabin retreat, so your privacy is assured. Choose a room with a view of the lake, one that features a fireplace and jetted tub, or indulge in the solitude of the Eagle’s Nest cabin, nestled in the pine grove. The vibe here is authentic Maine, so décor has a rustic, woodsy feel that’s just perfect for our secluded lakeside setting. Fresh air and open spaces leave lots of room for relaxation.

Farm-to-Table Goodness

We walk the walk here when it comes to utilizing fresh, local ingredients. Our coffee, bacon, eggs, sausage, and most of our dairy come from local purveyors. You’ll likely smell the aroma of breakfast before even entering the dining room as it wafts through the Inn: freshly brewed coffee, sizzling bacon or sausages, and freshly baked muffins… Join a table with other guests, or enjoy a private table for two – it’s up to you. For the ultimate indulgence, opt for our “breakfast in bed” enhancement, and we’ll deliver it right to your room. How do you spell r-e-l-a-x-a-t-i-o-n?

Dinner for Two

We continue that fresh, local theme at our evening Tripp Lake Pizzeria. Feast on a specially prepared pizza from our kitchen while enjoying the spectacular sunset over the lake. Or take it outside to the firepit, weather permitting, and listen to the call of the loons. Their soothing song washes over you, easing you gently into evening mode. The Pizzeria Dinner for Two option includes two garden salads, dessert, water and soft drinks. Make it a date night and grab a bottle of wine or a local craft brew!

Relax, Refresh, Renew

Ultimately, relaxation means letting go, or to quote the Oxford Dictionary, “when the body and mind are free from tension and anxiety.” What could be more stress-free than an in-room massage? In select rooms, our expert massage therapists offer a variety of spa treatments designed to suit your needs. More than just a pampering experience, deep tissue, sports, Swedish, or neuromuscular therapies aim to release tension and relax the muscles to improve circulation. Add a pre-massage foot soak or aromatherapy for a truly decadent spa experience.

Sunsets and Sweets

Sunsets are truly spectacular here on Tripp Lake. Settle into an Adirondack chair by the fire pit for the fabulous nightly show Mother Nature puts on. Grab a complimentary s’more from the sun porch for an authentic campfire experience. Romance and relaxation dance in the flames of the fire. As the sun’s last rays fade, and the moon rises over the lake, a certain stillness permeates the atmosphere. The day is done. Stars shine above, and somehow, all’s right with the world.

Play on the Water

Our lakeside location, deep in the woods of western Maine, means that water sports play an active role in a relaxing getaway. Grab one of our canoes or kayaks and glide across the lake to the sounds of the loons. Bring a fishing rod and wet a line in hopes of snagging a trout, bass, or perch. Or just lean back and enjoy the abundant wildlife that call Tripp Lake home. Our private, sandy beach stands ready to welcome all to play in and on the water.
