Imagine the perfect weekend or weekday getaway. A cozy place to lay your head. A world of outdoor adventures to uncover. An array of dining options to sate your appetite. Plus, a few tempting breweries and brew pubs to quench your thirst. In a word, nirvana.
So, let’s break it down for you.
Where to Lay Your Head
First of all, you’ll want to find the perfect place to stay. Featuring 11 comfortable rooms, plus a snug cabin in the woods, the Wolf Cove Inn ticks all the boxes. Its private and secluded setting on Tripp Lake ensures a relaxing and stress-free stay. Choose a pine grove or lake view, queen or king bed, or a room with a gas fireplace. You can even bring Fido along in one of the pet-friendly rooms.
Every morning begins with a homemade breakfast served in the Maine dining room, or delivered to your room for a small fee. Imagine sipping a freshly-brewed cup of coffee from a local roaster while enjoying the lake views from your private table for two. Most everything on the menu comes from a local purveyor, including farm-fresh eggs, bacon and sausage, and dairy products.
Enhance your stay with one of their romantic indulgences, or book a special package for extra savings. And, if you’re looking for adventure, don’t miss one of their seasonal adventure packages that will up the ante on your romantic getaway.
Where to Find Adventure
Speaking of adventure, Poland lies in the heart of an area rich in scenic beauty and well-protected natural preserves. Of course, the lake offers much in the way of water activities. Canoeing, kayaking, and freshwater fishing lures lots of visitors in summer. Fall hiking when the region is in the throes of foliage is beyond compare. And, in winter, the skiing, skating, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling is on par with any world-class resort area. Ever tried dog sledding? Located just 5 miles from the Inn, the Ultimate Dog Sledding Experience will have you gliding through the woods with a professional dog sled racer. It’s a thrill of a lifetime.

Where to Sate Your Appetite
Two options await your evening dining pleasure at the Wolf Cove Inn. For a truly romantic affair, book the Ultimate Romance Dinner, available May through September, weather permitting. Chef AJ will prepare a 4-course feast, paired with wine, and served in the Inn’s lakeside Boathouse Bistro. Looking for something a little less formal? Try our Tripp Lake Pizzeria. You’ll dine on fresh garden salad, house-made pizza, and a decadent dessert. Add a bottle of wine or a local brew and enjoy sunset on the lake from the Maine dining room. If you prefer, take your pizza party outside by the fire pit, or enjoy the view from the comfy Adirondack chairs
Your dining options are not limited to the Inn, however. The food scene in and around Poland Maine spans the range from romantic fine dining to an array of ethnic offerings and casual pubs. Of course, seafood features prominently on many local restaurant menus, and is always fresh Maine fare.
