This Lakefront B&B Is One of the Most Charming Rustic Wedding Venues in Maine You Could Ever Hope to Find

The Wolf Cove Inn in Poland, Maine is a JAW. DROPPER.

This beauty, which sits on the shore of Tripp Lake, was built in 1894 and operated as a private residence until the 1950s, when a local family remodeled the building and converted the first floor into a restaurant called Lobsterland (how much more charmingly Maine can you possibly get, right?).

After changing hands in the 1970s, the property was converted a private home, then in 1995 into a bed and breakfast and christened the Wolf Cove Inn. Roy and Sue Forsberg, the current owners, purchased the property in 2013—and boy, do they know how to make their guests feel welcome. From the super cozy and comfortable guest rooms to the little touches like free s’mores kits and Adirondack chairs found throughout the property, these two are committed to delivering a quintessential Maine experience, and it shows—big time.

We offer a variety of options so our couples can choose the package that best meets their needs.

What is your favorite moment from one of your weddings?
One of our brides got some blueberry pie on her wedding dress. On top of that, she and her groom were both hot since it was warm outside. So, they asked if they could use our rowboat to “take the plunge”—and they did. They rowed out onto the lake in their wedding clothes, stood up, and then hand in hand jumped into the lake.

What is your best advice for couples planning their weddings?
It’s your day. Do what you want to do. Not what your parents, relatives, and friends want you to do. The day is really only about you and as the years pass, you’ll be the only ones remembering the details. So make it special for yourselves.

Are there any vendors you would recommend to couples planning a wedding at your venue?
We make all the arrangements for the couple. That’s our service: hassle-free, intimate weddings. We take care of the officiant, witnesses, photographer, cake, flowers and so on, so the couple doesn’t have to.
