Meet Your Innkeepers

Pilgrim's Inn Owners Nicole and ScottScott and Nicole are excited to have made the move to Deer Isle! They look forward to welcoming guests to Pilgrim’s Inn and Whale’s Rib Tavern for the 2017 season, as the new stewards of this historic Select Registry property. They are eager to become part of the community, and to get to know the locale and all it has to offer. This will help them provide a fresh perspective for guests, on experiences and activities in Downeast Maine.

Nicole and Scott moved to Deer Isle in February, from the Greater Philadelphia area, just in time for lots of snow. They have lived in many states and abroad, and enjoy traveling, so they have an appreciation of what it takes to provide an excellent hospitality experience. They share a love of good food, good libations and good times spent making memories with friends. This new adventure as innkeepers is the perfect canvas for them to apply their passions to their work, while living in an area rich with nature’s beauty.

Scott has worked in corporate management for many years. He has a degree in Packaging Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, and has worked in pharmaceutical and medical device companies since. He is a US Navy Veteran. Nicole has been a dental hygienist for over two decades. She went back to school to earn a degree in Landscape Architecture from Temple University. She hopes to apply her design expertise to Pilgrim’s Inn and the surrounding grounds.

Nicole and Scott are very proud to be the new stewards of Pilgrim’s Inn and Whale’s Rib Tavern. All of the innkeepers that came before have created a great thing in Pilgrim’s Inn, and Scott and Nicole strive to uphold that tradition of excellence.
