Nestled directly on the serene waters of Tripp Lake, the Boathouse Bistro Culinary Cove offers an authentic Maine lakeside dining experience like no other less than an hour from Portland. This cherished part of our property, originally built in the late 1800s by the pioneering Wolf Family, has been lovingly revitalized to combine rustic charm with modern elegance, thanks to our partnership with Coastal Construction and Design.

Discover the Charm of Our Lakeside Retreat

The Boathouse Bistro, perched over the calm lake waters, provides an immersive setting where every meal is accompanied by the soothing sounds of lapping waves and breathtaking views of pine-fringed horizons. As the sun sets, painting the sky in hues of fiery orange and deep purple, guests enjoy a spectacle that truly encapsulates the spirit of Maine—unspoiled, wild, and strikingly beautiful.
