The Pilgrims Inn is a wonderful place to stay for a few nights retreat from the rest of the world. This is a historic inn that has been remodeled to fit the needs of those traveling in our current times. We had a wonderful suite of rooms in an area which they have designated pet friendly (we were traveling with... More

We enjoyed our night's stay at the Pilgrims Inn and our dinner at the restaurant. The inn has an historic feel with lovely and comfortable rooms. The grounds are beautiful and waterside. Great sunset out front! Dinner was delicious; we really enjoyed meeting Amy our server and part of the inn's staff as well as our bus girl, a local... More

My husband and I spend two nights at the Pilgrim's Inn and enjoyed it very much. The inn was very welcoming, the person at the desk even gave us a personal tour when we checked in (very nice). Our room was very comfortable, clean and cozy. We were in Room 3 which was above the kitchen, but we knew that... More

We are in our 60's and drove up for a brief 3 night stay, attracted by the Maine islands and reviews of the inn. Despite protests from my wife that the 5 hour ride from Boston was too long, we arrived 7 hours later after stops in Portland for beer tasting at Rising Tide and lunch at Whole Foods, and... More

We have stayed at the Pilgrim's Inn twice, most recently at the end of June. The inn is a classic 19th century inn, situated on a beautifully landscaped property in the tiny village of Deer Isle. Unlike many Main inns, it has ample public sitting space--two large first floor rooms, a large room off the bar, and nice patio seating... More

I simply adore Pilgrim's. It has a setting that is out of a fantasy of coastal Maine, has water views from just about every room, is nearly perfectly maintained by Tony and Tina and their hardworking staff, and has one of the most charming, rustic restaurants I can name. The rooms are charming and comfortable with first-rate linens, great water... More

The Pilgrim's Inn offers the best of coastal Maine for those who seek a more secluded, less frenetic pace than found in Camden or on Mount Desert Island. Historic and well-maintained Inn, with separate cottages (we have stayed in both) with a terrific restaurant, The Whale's Rib Tavern, for both dinner and breakfast. A pétanque court is an added perk,... More

A very compact, pretty property, by the water's edge. The lovely red/maroon colors, and the freshly cut lawn made a very welcoming sight. The lovely very old building, has low ceilings down stairs, but very spacious common areas all around. We stayed in 'Regosa', which is dog friendly, and well equipped. We plan to return in-season when the many galleries... More

We stayed Friday thru Sunday and loved every minute. It's absolutely beautiful and very well kept. Inside is perfectly decorated and everything you need at your finger tips. Outside was gorgeous water views. The restaurant was 5 stars. Can't wait til we go back!

My husband and I were celebrating our 4th anniversary and we came to the Pilgrim's inn for our first visit to Deer Isle. It was fabulous. The room we stayed in (#11) overlooked the cove out back and it was so relaxing to wake up to each morning. The breakfast was delicious and the inn keepers were so accommodating. It... More
