My girlfriend and I have been guests of the Pilgrim's Inn the night of the 14th of August during our holiday along the coast of Maine. We started driving from Boston and went up along the coast till Bar Harbour and stayed in loats of different Inns. The Pilgrim's Inn is without any doubt the best of them all: the rooms are nicely furbished and have maintanied the original wooden floor avoiding the cheap carpeting which is often used in this part of the country (carpet in toilets=disease). The postion is great with a nice view and a wonderfull garden facing the pond. The Inn offers free internet access and there is a laptop in the main living room which can be freely used by guests and allows free calls in the US. Being Italians we are pretty fussy about our food but still we were not disappointed by the restaurant (and I don't mean only the breakfast!), also the bar has a selection of good wines but most of all has a good choice of local beers (Ales here are better than in the UK). Freshly baked cookies, fresh fruit, tea and coffee are also available 24/7 in the living room. The rates are ok or even slightly cheaper perhaps because Deer Isle is not as popular than the nearby Bar Harbour.
