Real People. Real Advice. It’s the Maine Thing.
My name is Barry Tripp and I am passionate about the state of Maine and all its greatness. I met my beautiful wife Sherri in Portland, Maine almost 20 years ago. Today, we own an inn and surfing business called The Ocean Tripp Inn on a beautiful seven mile stretch of beach called Old Orchard. My wife is from an island of the coast called Vinalhaven and I am originally from South Florida. In the winter months we spend our time snowboarding at Sugarloaf and work in the town of Carrabassett Valley. Together we have a son named Jasper, who is also passionate about snowboarding, surfing and fishing. Our family loves the mountains, ocean, lakes, rivers and people of Maine.
