After a long cold winter the first signs of Spring are finally appearing in coastal Maine! The days are longer and temperatures are moving out of the single digits and into the 30's and 40's. Soon we will be opening up Pilgrim's Inn, painting, repairing, cleaning, organizing, and getting ready to welcome our guests back for a new season starting on May 9th.
Come celebrate spring on Deer Isle with "Wings, Waves & Woods" weekend, May 16-18. This special annual event gets more popular every year and is a great opportunity to learn more about the natural environment and the art it inspires in our special region of Maine.
Well known bird expert Bob Duchesne starts off the weekend with a trip to Marshall Island, the largest un-developed and protected island on the Eastern seaboard. Friday night offers a gallery reception with work by over 40 artists, refreshments and the opportunity to socialize with fellow enthusiasts. Throughout the weekend many opportunities exist to observe and learn about birds and our local natural environment, through walks, workshops, cruises and art classes. You can view the full schedule of events here.

Our season at Pilgrim's Inn in coastal Maine runs from May - October, so whether you come to the Island to welcome Spring in May, or say goodbye to Autumn in October, be sure to make your reservations soon!
