A 200-year-old post-and-beam country inn in a quaint village amidst a chain of lakes. Some of the region's best golf, fishing & boating are just steps away; travel just a bit further for Maine's prime outlet shopping, skiing and coastal venues. At the inn itself, you'll find friendly, gracious service and cuisine which guests and locals alike rave about. Hoping for more? How about a relaxed, comfortable setting and intimate, romantic atmosphere with special touches (like bedside sound machines, aromatherapy room sprays, and 24 hour butler's pantry) around every corner. The wrap-around porch facing Long Pond ... the rich, dreamy colors and textures featured in the guestrooms ... the raspberries and apples growing for the picking on the rolling front lawns ... and the gourmet breakfasts, afternoon teas and candlelit dinners are just some of the pleasures which await you. But maybe our guests say it best: "Tranquil, cozy & delicious" ..."We were spoiled" ..."A treat - very special place & food!!"...

We booked Wings Hill because we were invited to an event in Oakland. From the moment we walked through the door, the innkeepers made us feel right at home. This historic house is no sterile chain hotel - it has maintained its historic feel and country charm. Our room (the least expensive offering) had plenty of room for the two of us, an comfortable queen bed, and a large en suite bath with a great shower and claw footed tub. But the best? We had dinner that first night at the restaurant. What an amazing experience! Each course was thoughtfully prepared and excellent - from the somewhat unusual but incredibly tasty (cold) spicy watermelon and tomato soup, through excellent salads and incredible entrees to homemade lucious desserts, it was a joy. And honestly, at $65 per person, for the quality and quantity of food it was an amazing bargain. The included breakfast was also excellent, which lots of choices and careful and attentive service. Overall it was a great experience, and a place I highly recommend.

This is by far the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at. Chris and Tracey Anderson really have a beautiful inn. The rooms and common areas make you feel right at home. From the excellent breakfasts served to the 5 star dinners in their restaurant their culinary skills are top notch. I have eaten in five star restaurants and the food at this inn / restaurant is unsurpassed. The huge burning fireplace in the great room is a great touch in the wintertime. I will recommend this inn to everyone as Chris and Tracey have every little detail covered. It is nice to see people still take pride in what they do and Chris and Tracey definitely do that. My hats off to these 2 inn keepers for a job very well done…. Scott and Anne

Chris & Tracey met at the "CIA" (Culinary Institute of America) in Hyde Park, New York. After innkeeping for 4 years in seaside Ogunquit, Maine, they opted for the tranquility of this beautiful village and its lakes, mountains and wide open spaces - and for the non-stop excitement of having a small, intimate restaurant on-site!
