Harvest Your Own Maine Christmas Tree

Skip the parking lot tree this year, and go out into the woods to find and cut your own perfect Christmas tree. You’ll not only come home with a beautiful local tree, but with memories to cherish for years to come. We have several tree farms nearby, all offering additional perks from fire pits & hot chocolate to gift shops with locally made maple goodies and other holiday decorations like wreaths and kissing balls. Fill your home this year with the fresh aroma of Maine’s bounty!

Take a Romantic Sleigh Ride in the Snow

The song is right, you’ll make your spirits bright with a sleigh ride in the snow! Just a few minutes from Wolf Cove Inn is Carousel Horse Farm, which offers romantic rides for couples and fun group excursions in their classic horse-drawn sleighs. If you’re feeling more adventurous, then inquire about the availability of their winter trail rides on horseback. Either choice is a wonderful way to soak up the scenery of the beautiful White Mountains and experience the magical winter wonderland. All winter activities are weather permitting, both for not enough and too much snow, so make sure to check with them on availability.

Find the Most Unique Gifts & Treasures

We consider ourselves lucky to be within five minutes of the largest indoor Flea Market in Maine, The Willows Flea Market. This ever-changing treasure trove of antiques, collectibles and artisan-made goods is a must-see when you visit Wolf Cove Inn. It currently holds over 250 vendors between its original three story barn, and its new additional smaller barn. You’re sure to find that perfectly unique gift to put under the tree for that special someone. If you are looking for something to do that’s out of the cold weather in Maine, then this is it! They are open Thursday through Sunday, and even offer a delightful café for a relaxing break from shopping.
