April marks the beginning of a brand new season! Next week we'll be getting out the paint brushes, rakes, cleaning supplies and tools to spruce up Pilgrim's Inn so it's ready to greet our visitors starting Mother's Day weekend in May.
We are looking forward to new events and activities on the island, particularly "Wednesday's and a half" sponsored by the newly formed Deer Isle Galleries and Studios. On the second Wednesday of the month from July - September, twenty-two galleries and artisans right in Deer Isle village, will sponsor receptions, demonstrations, gallery talks, trunk shows and more. Our restaurant, the Whale's Rib Tavern will entice you to these events by offering special discounts to attendees on the day of the show. To learn more about these special events visit Deer Isle Galleries and Studios.
We are also gearing up for the "Wings, Waves & Woods" event taking place on Deer Isle, May 17-19th. This event celebrates the spring bird migration with three days of nature walks, boat trips, lectures, art demonstrations, a special dinner and more. When you stay at Pilgrim's Inn, you'll enjoy 10% off your room rate, just for participating! For more information take a look at the Wings, Waves & Woods schedule.
Spring also marks the time when we offer the very best rates and specials of our entire season. From "Hospitality for Habitat" discounts in May, to mid-week get your third night free specials in May and June, you'll find that May and June can be the best time to visit Pilgrim's Inn and Deer Isle.
