Opening Day is May 14!  Tuesday-Saturday 11-5 PM.  See you soon!

Nervous Nellie's is located on Deer Isle, Maine. It is about 3.5 hours from Portland, a little more than an hour from Bar Harbor, and about 30 min from Blue Hill.




From Route 1 north of Bucksport, take Route 15 through Blue Hill and Sedgwick, then across the suspension bridge to Deer Isle. You are crossing Eggemoggin Reach, a passage named by native Americans who paddled it in canoes years ago. Watch for schooners, yachts and fishing boats today. Follow Route 15 for approx 6-7 miles to a service station on the right. (If you have a dog with you, stop for gas -- Rover will get a milk bone.) Then, left onto the Sunshine Road. Nervous Nellie's is on the left about 3 miles down the road (bear right at the fork after a mile or so). Just follow the signs....it's a very scenic drive.

If this is a first visit, plan on at least an hour for several acres of sculptures, exhibits and buildings, plus a particularly interesting shop. (We close promptly at 5 pm). And have a Plan B if the parking area looks full.
