Reading through the guest book in our suite at Wolf Cove Inn, a wonderful Maine Bed & Breakfast, I find visitors from Texas to Tennessee, California to Colorado to Connecticut, Nevada to North Carolina, and even England, plus folks from our state. Yes, lots of people are finding their way to this very special place in Poland.
I told Roy and Sue Forsberg that I could have just pulled out the enthusiastic written comments from those guests in the guest diary in our room, and made this entire column. Lots of folks come here for intimate weddings in Maine, special get-a-ways, birthdays, anniversaries, and elopements. And Roy, Sue and Annalie, the inn’s chef, do go all out to make those visits very special. They even offer four pet-friendly rooms.
For example, one couple every evening can enjoy the Romance Package that includes dinner in the boat house, right on the shore, offering views of the sunset. Here’s how a South Carolina couple, on their honeymoon, described it: “Our romantic boat house dinner was more than perfect. We’ll be back.”
They’ve got canoes, kayaks, and a row boat to get you out on the lake, and yes, there are fish to catch there as well.
The owners of the amazing Captain Lord historic inn in Kennebunkport, one of our favorite places, gave Roy and Sue lots of advice when they bought the Poland inn and started their renovations. They gave up corporate careers to do this, and are truly loving their new business and jobs.
Annalie, a culinary school grad who is very creative in the kitchen, once cooked at Marche’ Kitchen in Lewiston. She is clearly enjoying herself here. And we enjoyed a wonderful supper (I loved the butternut squash soup and grilled ham and swiss sandwich). Sue told me to look forward to Annalie’s amazing breakfasts, and boy, was she right!
I had basted eggs over wild mushroom and scallion hash with swiss cheese, along with their hash brown casserole. They’ve made this recipe their own its housemate mushroom soup and ranch dressing as some of its ingredients. Wow! Suffice it to say that this was so good and filling that I did not eat a muffin, a first for me!
They did a fantastic job in renovating the inn, adding the gorgeous cabin, and making each room and suite unique. The art work and photographs on all the walls are so beautiful, that I found myself just standing there, enjoying them.
