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

The Pilgrim's Inn is the best choice for a visit to Deer Isle. My husband and I stayed there twice last summer while purchasing a home on the island. The inn offers beautiful and very comfortable rooms, a good bar and restaurant and excellent service all found in a historic building and an enviable location. The owners and staff were... More

This is a beautiful historic building. We stayed on the 3rd floor (rm 9) with the gorgeous wood beams, brick wall and view. The dining area is in an attached, comfortable, gorgeous wood barn. Breakfasts were robust and delicious. There are 2 fireplaces and sitting rooms in the walkout basement. A couple of mowed paths bring us to the edge... More

My husband and I stayed here while exploring Deer Isle and Stonington, Maine. We arrived in the late afternoon and had booked Room #2. Loved this room with a nice fireplace that was used long ago and was stocked with wood, ready to be lit for those cool fall nights. This room is over the tavern directly below but the... More

Stayed for two nights in mid-September with my wife in room #2. Cozy, clean room with great feel in common rooms too. Excellent restaurant for dinner, and very satisfying breakfast (included of course) with an assortment of bread, fruit, a hot offering (that was delicious both mornings), and coffee. Friendly, accommodating staff enhanced the stay. Grounds, with a not so... More

Deer Isle is quintessential Maine coast, off the beaten tourist path. This historic inn is a terrific way to experience it. The restaurant is excellent, too. First-class accommodations at a reasonable price. Beautiful inn and a beautiful location.

We arrived on Deer Isle without a reservation and we were able to get a room at the Pilgrim's Inn after a Chris at the chamber of commerce made a call fo us. I must admit that I am normally a budget concious traveler, but somehow my husband convinced me to splurge. I am so glad he did. We had... More
