Pilgrim's Inn
Ranked #1 of 6 Deer Isle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 8, 2011

The Pilgrim Inn is by far the best inn ever! It's located in a quiet place where there's not much to do other than sitting on Sand Beach and taking short hikes and that's exactly why my husband and I stay here every summer. We absolutely love it .

Great breakfasts. Cookies in the afternoon. Dinner in the Whale's Rib Tavern is wonderful and so is the hospitality of the innkeepers, chef Tony and his wife Tina. Order a vodka mint lemonade from Hank in the bar and you won't be disappointed.

There is a community laptop for internet access and phone for free long distance calls. Good thing since I couldn't get Sprint service. And they have clean beach towels when you need them.

Oh Pilgrim Inn, I wish I was there right now! Room 4 is the best room with view of the pond from the vintage tub where I soaked my worries away. They even had bath salts.

Room Tip: Reserve early. We book in the spring for our summer vacation. Recommend Rugosa Rose cottage or Room...

This inn is the best managed facility we have visited in a long time. Everything is quality, clean and maintained from the rooms to the common areas to the landscaping. The staff is friendly, helpful and there when you need them (but not when you don't). The breakfasts are delicious, varied and plentiful. (Get the Eggs Benedict as their breakfast special when available. The best ever!)

The dining room and bar are very busy and include many locals - always a good sign. There was a buzz in the air during the evening that added excitment to dining. Don't confuse this with noisy, because it wasn't. Just a refined gathering of enjoyment. The deck, grounds, and common rooms (4) offered more than enough areas to get away for personal discourse.

This was our first, but not our last visit. Just a real first class place!

House is more than 100 years old. Small number of rooms on various floors. Tea and coffee served continuously in the shared great room along with fresh baked cookies. Garden attached and steps away from art galleries and small town. 10 minutes from Stonington and freshest lobster we ever tasted. Very memorable place with attached high quality restaurant. Excellent breakfasts included.

We just had an overnight stay at the Inn and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, it was the kind of experience that one wants to have, but doesn't often get. Great friendly staff, super room and superb food all this in a beautifully appointed historical Inn. The Pilgrim's Inn has it all from fine dining to a well attended pub (which because of its location, does not interfere with dining or sleeping). Located in Deer Isle village, its on a mill pond across from North West Harbor - Blue Heron on the mill ponds edge and beautiful sunsets across the street. The village has everything from art galleries to Ice cream - what more could one want in the summer.
PS- the area abounds with natural beauty, hiking trails, art galleries, kayaking and more.

we hosted our son's wedding on 10-10-10...such a lovely location, wonderful and caring staff...wedding went off without a hitch...stunning in all ways. Even though we own on the island, this is the one and only place I would choose to have a wedding or brief stay. Tony and Tina are gracious and beyond. The marriage didn't last 2 months but the memories of this wonderfully magical place will be with us forever.

Room Tip: the cottages or rm 5

When we arrived, Tony was busy prepping dinner. He gave us a whirlwind tour. We met several other travelers, some of whom were repeat returnees. The location is very special -- quiet, pristine, as lovely as can be. We chose the least expensive room, over the kitchen/bar, but the noise was not an issue at all. The dining room is dark and atmospheric, as inns must have been a century ago. And sitting at the bar late at night was a special treat unusual for a B&B. Tony has quite a personal story to tell.

A friend suggested us the Piligrim's Inn and I have to say that she was right. It is a beautiful place, very relaxing and charming. The rooms are beautiful, well decorated, cleaned and beds are really confortable.
I really loved the attention to details. Can't wait to return!
