"This bed and breakfast beats all. We wanted to stay in Lewiston for our daughter's graduation from Bates College-but everything was booked. Now we know it was meant to be. It is so beautiful here and the accommodations are immaculate and lovely. We hope you are here a long time-we will be back. Thank you for your gracious hospitality." - Ipswich, MA

Maine has an ever changing offering of indoor and outdoor activities. Each season brings unique ways to explore our extraordinary setting of lakes and mountains in Western Maine. Wolf Cove Inn is a great spot from which to cast off for your daily outings. In summer, you may just want to stay and enjoy our lakefront setting. Launch one of our Canoes or Kayaks right from our private sandy beach area to paddle around Tripp Lake. Swim in the crystal clear water or just relax in one of our many chairs or the hammock swing in the boathouse gazebo.

Day trips opportunities are almost endless, there are state parks with walking trails, a wildlife park and zoo, a mining camp, Casino, Golfing and much more. Western Maine is heralded for its great hiking spots. Our surrounding lakes offer boat rentals, or guided boat tours including the scenic Songo Queen, or you can take to the skies for a seaplane ride. Maine farms with livestock, gardens, orchards and farm stores like Pineland Farms offers tours and the chance to pick your own fruit and vegetables.

Visit a classic county fair or go to the race track at Oxford Plains Speedway. In the fall, pick apples amid the brilliant fall foliage, get your pumpkin and find your way out of a Corn Maze.

In winter, you can explore Maine on ice-skates, or snow by touring on cross country skis. There are several Nordic centers nearby with groomed trails and equipment available, or you can go alpine skiing at Mount Abram, Sunday River and Lost Valley.

Here are a few favorite things to do while staying at Wolf Cove Inn:

Kayaking and Canoeing –right from our private sandy beach with one of our kayaks or canoes.

Fishing - Right from our dock on Tripp Lake. Or use one of our Kayaks or Canoes. Maine residents under 16 years of age and nonresidents under 12 years of age may fish without a license. Dept of Fisheries fees
